Wow... this place certainly has changed over the past few years. A bit of nostalgia mixed with a want for a different setting have caused me to login and look around the old side7. I hate that it still seems like little goes on here as I remember the days when this place flourished with dozens or more uploads daily... now there's only a few?
I've still been drawing all this time and feel I have improved, especially when looking at older submissions still up here. I've been in and out of other places as I have my bouts of wanting to share art when my muse agrees with me. Also have a much better website now ( http://www.felonykat.info if anyone's interested) than I did back when I was active here at side7.
I think I'll begin submitting here again. Despite the decrease in activity, side7 still remains a good art gallery that's always been welcoming. The only one I've ever donated money to as well. Seems like a lot of people I knew have left but some remain and hope to reconnect as well as meet new fellow artists. <3
