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......
