for those of you who insist on living in early 2011 despite my last journal, the jig is up. I moved to AaronProductions over three years ago, yet I still get new watchers and more daily pageviews on this old account, for some reason.

so yeah, for those who still don't get it

I MOVED TO AaronProductions THREE YEARS AGO, GO FOLLOW THAT


    I'll take up the rest of this journal for a short monologue on sonic fan art.
Here's the truth: if you want to further your skills as an artist, look somewhere other than sonic art. You're going to reach a ceiling on quality that you won't be able to get around until you try and broaden your horizons.
   For years, I was a sonic artist. It was my first passion in drawing, and I loved the series. However, as a sonic artist, you will someday reach a point where you realize that the important thing linking you to your admirers is almost certainly not your skill level, it's your common interest in and membership to a fanbase. My popularity on this account, both past and present, was and still is due mostly (if not entirely) to having drawn sonic art in the past.
    If you, my sonic fan artist majority of watchers, reach a point where you want to separate yourself from fan art and focus on entirely original work, you will find your popularity will neither remain nor grow so quickly. In the amount of time I've been on AaronProductions, I have output much higher quality work and seen comparatively far less feedback. Fewer pageviews, etc. It's just a sad truth of not tapping into the power of fandoms, but boy does it empower you artistically. I have seen drastic improvement upon distancing myself from fandoms, and I encourage it at least in moderation. I hope some of you can take my advice.
    Importantly, I also hope some of you can transfer your interests to my new account, instead of continuing to follow this one in hope of seeing some new content. Sorry, guys! Aaron the Hybrid has been tossed into the furnace by the man made of gold. See you on AaronProductions!
Stop following me on here! It's been three years! Go check out some new original stuff!

Hey, nice sig, fucktard. After you finally see that there are OVER 9000 WORSE ARTISTS THAN ME, then maybe you can go troll them instead.
People like you make me sick.

And yes, I recognize it was a joke. A dirty fucking joke.
Still. If you wish to troll on someone's art, art that was completely fucking original, please dont let them find out SIX MONTHS AFTER YOU ADD IT TO YOUR SIG.
Other than that, I have no quarrel with you. Have a good day.

Who do you think you are?! Making others feel bad isn't a wise choice, you jerk.

who do you think you are, not checking the other comments first? it's a joke. the link takes you to whatever account you're logged in as.

so before calling someone a jerk, try to be educated about what you're talking about.

Whatever. It still makes people feel bad. You should take it down instead of making others look like a fool.
