So some of you may be wondering why I don't update as much as I used to, the reason is simple:

Having spent my summer holiday away from my illustration course at University , I have begun to realize that left alone without a constant creative atmosphere I actually have a lot of trouble producing original content. This is in part because of my time spent on deviantArt, more specifically: the mlp fandom.

To put it simply I want to devlop my artistic abilities and be more original, and by doing that I have begun to stray from doing mlp related work, if only because I feel I have become a very so-so artist in a heavily over-saturated market, to the point where my style is barely note-worthy on a large scale. And considering I used to do mlp art solely for the fun of it, I feel its understandable that over the years I may have become disenchanted with it. To the point where I feel like I'm in a serious competition with my fellow artist, and not enjoying myself while doing it. 

So what does this mean? well in terms of updates probably not much, I may update this account if I have a sudden stroke of genius or something. But for the most part what I really want to do is practice, practice, practice at the things I feel will benefit me in the long run.

I'm sorry of this displeases any of you bu if I'm honest I've been feeling this way for a while and an explanation has been long overdue. I decided to come clean now mostly because whilst doing some doodles Ii got carried away an created this: europamaxima.deviantart.com/ar… which I feel is definately a sign that I need to start thinking bigger with my art and I need to start to think outside of this box I've made for myself.

This isn't goodbye forever, who knows, maybe I'll be on a roll when season 5 gets here, anything could happen......

LOL, I suppose a late Happy Birthday is better than none. Honestly in terms of an art trade though, it would depend somewhat on what you would want me to draw for you. Send me a note...
