Hmmm... well hello there XD
I'm writing a journal to let whoever is interested know that I'll be more active on dA from now on.
I haven't been active for a long time, as you may have noticed. I rarely checked dA, in fact. When I did, I usually just replied to comments.
I kept telling myself I would draw more and do all the drawings I owed to some many people and etcetera... for some years now >_>
But I always ended up not doing anything. I barely drew anything. I only scribbled things on the notebooks I take to uni, or maybe sketched some things on separate pieces of paper, but rarely so. I did some little sketchy reference drawings of some OCs of mine I've had in my mind for years now, but never quite took my time to develop them more.
But... I'll tell you what happened recently. About a month and a half ago, I started reading this odd webcomic called Homestuck. I read the first hundred pages with curiosity but not that much interest, to be honest. Then I read more pages... and more... and sweet jegus I couldn't stop reading it. The GIFs, the dialogues, the flash animations, the music... my god, it's so awesome, funny and epic I just couldn't believe it. I've read the about 5000 pages available and I check for updates every day (yes, it's updated almost every day; often more than once a day). I'm THAT hooked on it. I don't think I've ever been this obsessed about anything else like this o_o
And this love for that comic has brought me to start using my Tumblr account again. I've seen so much fanart, and the fandom is so GREAT, I feel motivated to draw again. It might be fanart for now (as you can see, my two most recent submissions are related to HS), but I also feel the need to draw in general. And maybe improve in all of those things I need to work on. And maybe also give my OCs some love and develop them further.
It may sound dumb to credit just a webcomic for this, but I swear it's the truth. At least, it is what gave me this first push, and then everything else sort of... cascades ♥

(be warned though, the first part of the first act has a sort of slow pace... but you won't regret reading it ♥)
