First off, thank you
for letting me post this to the group, I'll remove it after a week or two once news has gotten out.
As the title said, I'm wake! At least that's what it feels like. For those who don't know I deal with depression which, let's not beat around the bush, sucks. Overall I can manage it well, but it really did a number to me when it came to managing DeviantArt and drawing. Finally though, the time has changed, the world is warming up, and I'm feeling so much better. It'll still take a bit more time until I'm at full go get'em potential, but I feel confidant enough to return to Deviantart and manage relationships again.
The main reason for this journal is to apologize, I've received so many great comments on the artwork I got out before the depression firmly set in and even so far back as Halloween had beautiful pieces of artwork that included my characters. I've saved each and every comment and submission in my inbox always wanting to show the appreciation I felt. As time goes on it gets harder to face up to tasks I've set aside for so long, but instead of vanishing completely (I tend to run when a problem has waited too long) I'm writing this journal and cleaning our my inbox in preparation for a new year.
It's not what I would prefer to do, not by far and I feel bad about it. There were so many wonderful pieces of artwork and new members to the Mais Pond that I wanted to greet, but I know in the long run this is what will get me back on my feet. I still want everybody to know just how good seeing your artwork, comments, and birthday wishes made me feel even if I remained clammed up about it. Just thinking about it now gets me warm and fuzzy inside so thank you, it means a lot to me <3
Thank you so very very much, art, comments, simply being understanding, I love you all!!!
I hope you can accept my apologies for being so quiet, I truly missed you all.
And finally, to all the new members I didn't get to say hello to yet.
