It all comes down to my art. You see, during most of this past year I've grown more and more unhappy about what I draw, to the point my art drive pretty much died down. I wasn't happy with how I did things, more so when I looked at how my art used to be. But, I realized I had felt miserable about it for too long so I decided to change things and try to get back in track. For starters I began to take an art class, and the first time I was told was to -forget- about my shading style. That I was just doing things wrong and had to start from scratch, and so I did.
I think the change is noticeable, and hopefully I won't let my gallery go abandoned again. Also, for all the people who were concerned about me, thank you! You were a big part of why I decided to put my stuff together.
from MY point, your art was already good enough for my taste.
the only thing I would have liked to see done bout it would have been your part of our ARTTRADE.
(mine still wait for yours for around 2 years and a half now to show)

oh man! °x°
hum... s-sorry bout that. -a_ā'-
Your biggest problem is you stuck to one thing for too long and people just got sick of it me included, your recent stuff however is the step in the right direction. You just need to expand out of your usual drawing style more.
I hope you enjoy your classes, I know I learned alot from the classes I took.
I'll be looking forward to seeing more art with your new shading and skills
Also, good choice in going back to school. It'll be a pain, but your work has already shown great improvement. I can't wait to see what you make next!
I've had the same problem with Barbi the Barbarienne.
Fans of the comic have asked if I've abandoned the strip when the simple truth is I want to focus on quality not quantity.
I've been spending the last year (or so) on "the Gath Chronicles" trying to may the art look more "professional".
Whereas Barbi has been done in a more "fast n loose" style; which I find kind of embarrassing to exhibit.
So, in a nutshell, I support you decision to focus more on the quality of your already beautiful artwork.
