Ok, I am getting really tired of people not reading descriptions and assuming pallanophs are wolves. Why the hell am I wasting my breath on this? *sigh*

I think I'll have enough for a sketch. :3 Also a song is playing on my Winamp that makes your webcam pic look like he's having a fat party!

One of the small commissions I've been doing? I've got sketches from $15-25 USD and line art at $25-35.

One of these days, I'll speak my mind on the internet. Until then, private ranting with close friends.

Pallanoph/Headworld/Sketches and progress tumblr:

Yes. I am finally doing what I'd meant to do for ages: I am leaving (have left) the majority of dA groups I have joined.

Most of them are half dormant, the others have reached epic levels of spam I simply cannot keep up with anymore. And since I do not have the time to actively participate in any of them, I am leaving most of them outright. 

I do not believe I should be able to share and promote artwork on said groups if I otherwise do not contribute to said groups. To further this vein of thought, I will no longer accept group submission requests unless they are very specific groups that I take a liking to. All other requests will be declined or deleted.

I am simply no longer interested in this system, so I am opting out of it.

Do not take personal offense if you're a group member/admin who has requested my work before; this isn't directed at anyone. I'm well aware that opting out of/removing my work from groups will likely contribute to a drop of views in my work. So be it!

Hopefully people won't interpret this as some sort of weird "butthurt" journal. I'm just making an announcement so people know not to involve me in their groups unless they have a really good reason to think I'd be interested. :XD:

On a related note, if we were to be more strict about the number of groups and their focus, and we removed the "drag and drop to favorites" feature, we could be more interactive as an art community. But whatever, that's just my stupid opinion.
