So, for those who don't know yet, my little rooster, Mochi, passed away last week unexpectedly. His passing has hit my family and me very hard, as he was such a special boy. We don't know what happened, but I'm guessing he went down for a nap during the day and just never woke up again. We buried him yesterday after saying our final goodbyes. He looked very peaceful, and had a happy, if short life.
If anyone is curious, I've gathered together some photos of him here: sta.sh/2i56ukk8low
Though I've been trying to keep busy, it's sometimes hard for me to focus on work this last week. Things are slowly getting easier, but I've been thinking a lot about my art and what I want to do with it.
I've got another account on weasyl, which you can get to from the links on the left side of my journal, but I'm not sure how active I'll be there either. I'm starting to think that I won't be using dA much anymore, aside from posting commission work, some Hetherev stuff, and maybe a few other things here and there. Personal work is something I'm less and less inclined to share on public galleries since I'm thinking more seriously about my writing and stories. It's possible some personal art that's not Heth related might show up, but I wouldn't count on it too much anymore. Sorry. :<
While my heart is still in my personal work, I'm just not finding enough time to do much, and too many people trying to take my creations for their own has put me off of sharing.
Not really sure what else to say. I'm not leaving dA. At least not yet. But I'm going to be moving a lot of my work into storage, mostly personal world building and character work.
