Re-uploaded Art Two Years Ago / Happy Day!

on 28 August 2020 at 11:04:38 MDT

Hello everyone!

Over two years ago, I finished re-uploading most of my old art on August 24th, 2018 to my Tremaine account.

When I started re-uploading my art, I was wondering if I was making the right decision, or a huge mistake. It turns out that it was one of the best decisions I could have possibly made, and even had a great number of positive side effects I never anticipated!

It restored a lot of beloved creations to be shared among fans, friends, and people new to my works. And, it helped me make peace with my own past in a really profound way! I could put a lot of events back in their original context and forgive myself for a lot of decisions I've made over the years. It also made a number of things really clear to me, like a trend of severe anxiety and depression that started since I left high school in 1995, was finally identified in 2012, and for which I'm finally taking really helpful medication for in 2020! Like, you have no idea how much I beat myself up for my decreased output over the years, but really had no clue it was due to worsening mental illness issues. This means my re-uploading of my art brought me unexpected peace of mind, and a more centered me in the present!

Thank you all so very much for your incredible support back then, and even now! It means more to me than you can even know!

I also want to say regarding my future: I am on anti-anxiety and antidepressant medicine, and it does make me feel more like "me" but without all the sadness, darkness, and near-constant worry. I can positively way the darkness and worry has been a part of me since I was very little; now, I have space for other emotions, like joy, calm, almost anything I want, and it's awesome! I feel like creating is easier now that I'm not feeling awful all the time.

Right now, I want to work on a fun, long series with Evan, my bunny guy, and Tremmie, my black-haired vixen! From silly flirting, foreplay, gooey sex and sweet, silly cuddles, I want to have fun with this! It's something I've been wanting to do since 2007, but I am very sure I was already in a major depression back then.

I also want to say, Wendy Rose (Mistletoe) and I have been married 15 years today! I am so glad I married my best friend. We've been each other's light and joy, and have stood by each other in our darkest times. I can honestly say we are truly happier than we've ever been today. I mention this because re-uploading my art has indeed contributed positively to my own mental health, and I want to thank you all for welcoming me with enthusiasm!

    OMG It's so nice to see you around again!! x3 I'm just a random follower, yes, but YAYYYYYYYY! Welcome back!

    • Link

      Aww, thank you!! I'm truly happy to see you happy! Haha! "And I love you, random follower!"

      Seriously, though, your reaction is exactly what I'm hoping for when I re-upload my old stuff. It helps me to know people are excited and happy!

    Bro these sketches are awesome why not ink and color one now and then?

    • Link

      That's the intent! I'm eventually going to take some of these sketches and thumbnails, redraw them and fix some mistakes, ink them, and color them. For now, though, I'm just working on trying to establish a daily drawing habit. I only drew 4 things in 2017, and the last time I drew anything before the current uploads was October of 2017.

      So, once I get all my old art uploaded to my Tremaine account, I'm going to spend time doing full color pics of all these pieces I've been uploading! I expect I'll get done uploading old art around the end of August or so. I should probably make a journal about it! :)

        Well you're off to a great start

    I used to follow your stuff aways back, then life happened and I ended up drifting and forgetting your name, glad to see you're still creating!

      Haha, life happens to us all! I ended up not creating for a while, but I'm giving it another shot. I'm glad to be back!
