Hey Everyone. A lot of you may be wondering, "Where the heck did InvaderXMovies' art go? And why?" Well, I'm here to answer that.
About a week ago, I was under an unimaginable amount of stress, for numerous reasons. And I started going online to relax and watch videos, only to make me paranoid about my DeviantArt account. I'm starting to think more seriously about my art, and stuff like that. And even though I'm not gonna make money off of fan art, At the time I began to worry about the future of this account and my reputation here on this site! Ultimately I reached a breaking point and made the conscious decision to delete my account. Entirely. Forever.
Now I mean this from the bottom of my heart when I say that none of you guys had anything to do with this decision, I simply was just so disturbed by the possibilities of all the bad things that could happen to me, that it was just too much! So yes I began deleting all my art from my account. Until I reached my first ever request drawing...The pic of my fan made ZIMASK character, (Invader ZIM and The Mask.) and the super popular Lisa Loud and The Mask by funnytime77 (so sorry if I spelled that incorrectly, I'm just going from memory.) That is when I really started thinking rationally about what I was doing...and I was at quite the crossroads. I ended up expressing my dilemma to my dad. I said why I was doing it, and why I also didn't want to do it. And he told me, to keep my account! And honestly I actually agree with him. I've probably only been here for two years, but in that time I have done so much! I learned how to draw Invader ZIM characters more accurately, I got a job doing thumbnails for IZTDM! And most of all, and this is why I stopped deleting my art in the first place, I have met so many great people here (not in person but still!) and I have made almost all of them happy!
That last part: Making people happy, is in fact THE sole reason for why I ultimately decided to stay. I love making cool art for you guys to enjoy. And your art is also super duper cool! It's amazing how all the people here on DeviantArt have grown...and even a bit humbling too!
Anyway, you guys, my watchers, even people who don't watch me, and, well pretty much everyone on or off DeviantArt! You guys are so kind and so supportive of each other. Keep doing what you're doing. Never give up on your dreams!
However, I understand that the internet can be HUGE, MASSIVE even, and also very dangerous and sometimes disturbing! I seriously wish I could permanently delete all negativity and inappropriate content from not just the internet, but existence! But unfortunately I don't have that kind of power. But I do have a kind heart and psychotic urge to spread joy and happiness to everyone I meet, regardless if they want it or not (don't worry I won't pester them to the brink of insanity!
) and that is just what I am going to do! And that is a PROMISE!!!! SO NO NEED TO FRET AMIGOS! I AM NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!!! However I am not going to be posting original content here unless if A. I have a rock solid secure patent and copyright on it, and B. It is already known. So don't expect anything original from me unless if it's just small and not really important and stuff. (When I say important, I mean really grand things like ads for original stories, and stuff like that.)
And if you're wondering if I'm gonna re-upload my art, yes! Yes I will! As much as I can. So don't you worry about that!
I guess what I'm trying to convey is:
I'm sorry for the unexpected/unexplained deletions of my content. I will not be leaving any time soon! I can promise you that! I love all of you and your awesome artwork! Keep doing what you're doing, and don't let anybody tell you different! Not even if they are not a real person, but just a bad day, a painful truth, whatever that truth may be, or even a worse case scenario. WHATEVER YOU DO, BELIEVE IN YOURSELVES! Not only is it the name of the number one rock song in history, it's also supported by SCIENCE!!!!! People who believe in themselves have a higher boost in self esteem/confidence/empowerment etc. and that leads to a stronger emotional mindset, meaning, while we can't really control the world and sometimes days don't go your way, we can control our reaction to it, and that increases our chances of success!!!!!! (I learned this from a video and school and my parents, and even myself. So try seeing the world from a different perspective. You'll be surprised...or not, whichever you choose!
Thanks for reading this and good luck to you all!!!!
