Hello hello there guys. Glad you're still with me if you are.
It's not like me to be so inactive, but recently I've been musing with whether it's high time to try and start afresh on a new account. I made one a while back when I first had the idea under the name ToniPrufrock
I've been on deviantart a long time by now, and not only do I have about 11,000 messages every day to get through from all the groups I joined and people I've followed over the years, but also at 23 (and especially since I want to eventually try doing stuff for etsy and commissions) I wanted to distance myself from my really old art and from the general detritus that one picks up. And, most of all, my rather juvinile username. lol
However here I have my watchers, and the history of my account in a little package, and I rather miss it.
So I don't know what to do. Any thoughts?
  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: 'bangarang'
  • Reading: indie crafts
  • Watching: Pewdiepie
  • Playing: Skyrim
  • Eating: Nothin'
  • Drinking: Tea

Hmm. Quite a few people from our old guild have been making new accounts.

I can understand the urge to want to distance one's self from older work, but I feel that it can help show how far an artist has come.

I have the same kind of idea about my username. Since I'm a premium user, I have the ability to change mine (because of the origin of the name, I don't think I could). I doubt you'd want to spend the money to have access to that choice, though.

As for watchers, well, if they're paying attention or are active, they'll follow you to your new account.

I suppose a lot of it can depend on how many memories are attached to this account. Then again, you could always just keep this one open and browse it to go down memory lane. Hrm.

In the end, if you want a more professional account, then by all means, make a new one. Like I said, you can always come back to this one.

I think I've touched all the bases.
