Pride

I'M AN ALLY

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

Dear viewers,
Lately, I have found myself fortunate enough to be gaining a loot of attention in the dA community.  I'm not sure if it's because I've been posting more regularly (even when I haven't drawn anything, I've been trying to put up a photo every week or two) or what, but there have been a lot of people noticing my work, faving and making polite and helpful comments.
I find all of this immensely flattering!  As many of you know, it has been my policy so far to visit the gallery of anyone who faves my work, to check out their own submissions, and to offer a personal "thank you."  It's been my way of showing appreciation for the positive input.
Unfortunately, my personal time has been a bit short since 2014, when I took my current day job - and it has severely limited the amount of time I have for leisure.  This has caused me to scrutinize what I do with that time pretty intensively.  With regard to dA, I've noticed that I have been spending more time thanking people and replying to comments than I have on actual art.  As my Watcher base grows, and my work gets viewed more heavily, this trend only increases - and, on many evenings, this means that I don't get around to drawing at all.
I would like to reiterate that I dearly love the dA community, and those of you who watch or visit my gallery have been nothing but wonderful!  If I had all the time in the world (or even an extra four or five hours a week) I would happily go on as I always have, giving each of you the specific thanks that I feel in my heart.  Your critiques fuel my ambition, and your comments stoke the flames of creativity.  For that, I thank you all!
That said, I suspect that most of you would prefer more interesting (I hope) images from my gallery to a bunch of "thank yous" - especially as I try to avoid coming off as spammy, and limit myself to thanking each person a time or two before tapering off.  As such, I'll be focusing more on creation and output in the coming months, and seeing what happens.  I hope that you'll find the result acceptable.

With humble gratitude and continued ambition,
-Djake

Yeah, I’ve recently gone from working 6 hours a day to 10, so my dA time isn’t what it used to be - but I still pop in when I can. :)

Thanks!  I had a nice Black Forest cake, Barbecue and a lovely dip with sour cream, iceberg lettuce and bruschetta tomatoes - except in reverse order.  :XD:
