Unfortunately, the title is no joke.
I have grown incredibly tired on deviantART and whenever I go on it I only find myself getting a little disappointed rather than enjoying it. It used to be different when I first joined... now, I don't know if it's because it has grown so much, but it feels like a foreign place. So, I will not be posting, viewing, or commenting anymore. I will only sign in to check on the and set contests, for it is the only reason I keep visiting deviantART in the first place. I like keeping Silvaze alive at least.
I am 22 now. When I joined dA, I was 14 (my gosh, the time...). I used to be a lot into Sonic and fanart but this little interest has now evolved. If you are interested to see what I've been doing outside deviantart, have a look at my website: annastachtiari.format.com/ . I am aiming to be a 3D animator or texture illustrator so fanart really is at the bottom of my list at the moment and I mostly do it to please my audience, which lately has been removed from my priorities list.
I want to thank you for these wonderful 8 years (wow it's been that long), for watching me, some of you have been with me for years and years and that is a great feeling. I got closer with several friends (who know who they are) through this website too and I have seen them evolved in tremendous levels. Makes me teary. It has been a good place for me, but over the last couple of years it has turned into a boring, quiet place. Also, I am a little tired of seeing porn-like photography on the front page all the time.
So, yeah! With that, this account will remain as it is. I will be cleaning up a couple of things but my main/ favourite images will stay like a little 'memorial' that I can maybe look back in a couple of years and say "Look at the shit I was drawing". Lol, no really, I had a good time guys Wish you the best and keep creative. Goodbye!
