For anyone who's still remotely interested in seeing new art from me, I'm sorry to say that I cannot continue. There's probably no one, but some word of closure is better than nothing.
Almost 2 years now I've been more artistically productive than I've ever been and enjoying it quite a lot. However, I have to admit the truth: It's almost been like a untruth, if anything. I've feel far less an artist and more of an engineer, and I realise that thinking of the work I had some in terms of engineering has been the reason I pulled off the work I did... This whole time. Yeah, those are some serious creative restraints, but I can't do without my procedure to everything.
*sigh*  This does. I don't feel like an artist. And like I had noted before, I don't feel entitled to enjoying something without, at the same time, demonstrating how much I do. ...I love My Little Pony...—and the fandom—but I can't do art about it without it leaving a bitter taste in my mouth and bad thoughts in my head. This has been a tormenting block which showed up for all the wrong reasons. I shouldn't feel obligated to producing art and pondering day after day where it had gone off the deep end. It actually bothers me that Nintendo Fridays prevails as my most and regularly viewed piece. My attitude, though changed, is still the truth. I have no motive to be disingenuous about it all. At the time I was thrilled about what I was doing—even with the excessive work involved. ... But now I am walking on eggshells, amidst the worst bout of winter sickness I've ever had. I don't want my artistic stagnation to ruin my joy for MLP. I suppose I should have known sooner.

Maybe I'll come back some day. Maybe in six years... Like the last time I had an art block. ...who knows?

I absolutely love the new wallpapers you've made.  My favorites would have to be the Octavia and the Vinyl Scratch ones, but the Applejack one was made really well too!

I really like minimalistic wallpapers, and I feel that yours are the perfect combination of minimalistic/simple and detailed/complex.  I hope to see you do more wallpapers of this style.  I for one really enjoy them! :D
