I've been with this DA account for 4 years now. (Despite it only reading as 3. It's 4 this October.) Anyway, other those years I've drawn terrible things and I've drawn thing's that I've looked at with great pride. Only to scowl and delete it a few weeks later. I've some what progressed over those years and I've come to terms with the terrible account name I chose for my self. ;D (which is still my email address. Ha)
Next year though I graduate from University. I'll be a fully-fledged member of society (Ekk) with a degree in Graphic Design and (as of yet) no job. This is the year for me to really start contacting people and getting myself out there. However, there is a problem with that.
None of my artwork in gallery reflects what I actually do. So far it's used for pointless doodles of my OC's and other terrible shenanigans that are not professional enough.
I have other accounts to display work of course. I have a Behance (which as of yet has one project on it
and I already dislike it) And a Carbon Made profile which is still under construction. Yet DA brings artists/illustrators and designers together. It's a great community that I don't want to leave because hey
where the hell would I get my exposure?
So here's the plan.
Either I simply leave this account as it is and toddle off and make a new one. Perhaps using this for Babel Fish doodles.
Or I delete everything I hate and keep this for the traffic it's already slightly making.
What do you guys think? (To tell you the truth, I now like the idea of the second option. Typical.)
