And that would be purging my gallery of old art. I'd make a zip of it of course and find somewhere to upload it. Right now, I'm just..feeling kinda blah about things. I look at my old stuff and see a person who I used to be, and remember the reasons I drew what I did, or the people I drew them with in OC. Nearly all of these people I don't speak with anymore. Those images are like memories I'd rather not have around.
I know I went thought a lot of trouble to upload them here, but right now, it just doesn't have the meaning it used to, and I need to try something else if I want to feel like what I do is meaningful to me. Yeah, I drew lots of porn, why not right? Two things I read today got me thinking. One was on an imageboard where the page of a comic was posted. The people reeeally critisized it a lot, and I had to agree with them. The dialog had mistakes, the plot didn't make sense, and the characters weren't in character. It was a shame such things weren't worked out with care you know? It just made me think...I do all this "one shot" stuff and rarely ever anything with an actual plot or follow through. And yes...seeing something terrible gives me the guts to try haha!!
The second thing that influenced me to think about this was another artist who purged all his stuff from his gallery. Not because of other people but because he wanted to grow as an artist. Yeah, it's a pretty rash move, I agree. People did complain about it, but it was his art afterall.
I'll be leaving stuff I did around 2008 and after, it's more significant to me than old porn, ya know?
