Why hello my lovely watchers
I have finally replaced my tablet! I got the new Intuos Pro and I'm so happy I have a tablet again. That's the good news! The bad news is that I have a 3 exams, 2 oral presentations, 2 weekly assignments, one essay and a Chemistry report to do over the next month. That does mean that I am going to be MAJORLY MAJORLY behind in ALL my art. That being said, I am cancelling all current commissions, and as seeing that I require you pay after I finish, it means I owe you nothing, sorry for being blunt, but its how it is. Same goes for requests, prizes, collabs etc. I just need time to do art for myself (hopefully on this side of the grave) and as I've been developing my own style, I am going less and less towards Winx. I am not going to draw any transformations from Season 6 onwards because frankly, the show is just not what it once was and I no longer want to watch it. That being said, I will definitely finish all of my Winx-related works that are in progress and post them up, but it will probably be the last of them for now. It will take a long time for me to finish everything because I have a lot of stuff haaha, so it won't all happen suddenly. I honestly feel like I've outgrown Winx, and the community. I will always continue to support other artists and their work just as they have supported me. I thank this wonderful community for the last few years, you have been my saviour in some of my darkest moments. Art has always been a release for me, but as I've continued to learn, it has grown as well and is now a different kind of art.
I don't want to go on some kind of sideways rant, but I honestly have lost all interest in many aspects of what used to be a release. I still write and develop characters, but they will not be related to Winx. At some stage, I will probably auction off some of my characters or completely rework them to fit a different kind of storyline. I might also begin to introduce some of my book characters to you guys, and to try and illustrate their stories because that is where my passion truly lies now.
To sum up, I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to develop my characters, to help me learn on how to create them and for improving my art. I cannot thank you all enough for everything. While this may seem like a goodbye, its really not. Like I said, I will be posting Winx art for some time to come, but I'm giving everyone a heads up now that it will eventually stop. I will probably make an update journal then as well.
I hope to be active very soon!
