Hello everyone! 2013 seemed like such a short year. so much happened withing such a short span of time, but I'm actually quite glad it's over. I have been absent from here for quite some time, being more active on the black hole that is tumblr these days. However, that is not the reason I might be deleting this account. I would like to start fresh here on dA, though I may try to avoid doing so, if I can simply delete deviations and such. I will also be changing my commission prices with a starting price of $200 if I receive any. 

That sounds very pricey, I know, however, I feel it is in my best interest to do so, since this is my professional rate as of right now. However, I know there are those who wanted commissions from me in the past and for those of you (I know who you are) I will still charge you the initial prices I have had listed. So if you still would like a commission from me, just get in contact with me via note or my tumblr (bloochikin.tumblr.com) and I will make the proper amendments. 

Anywho, I just though I would post here so you all know what's up, to the few that actually look at my journal lol. I'll probably make a deviation post as well. 

Thanks for watching!! :heart::heart::heart:
 
*EDIT*
To all of you who were asking, I will post a link to my new dA if I decide to create a new account, I promise! 
Also, thank you all so much for the birthday wishes!!!!! :blowkiss:

I know it's asking a lot, since as an artist your ow older work looks like a flaming pile of poo after a few months, but if you do delete the work from this account, could you post the old art elsewhere, or even put it in a zip file for anyone who wants it? You are seriously one of my favorite DA artists, and I come by to look at your works again every so often, so it'd really suck if they were just... gone.
And more to your interest, your fanarts collect more publicity to your art, and that'd mean more potential commissioners right? So everyone wins if you just put them elsewhere, maybe even in an 'old art' folder here on DA.

Little late to the party here... but I'm glad you're increasing your commission rates. You do great work and you shouldn't sell yourself - or your work - short. Yes, it does mean that broke folks like myself will probably never get a chance to commission you, but that's whatever.

Great things for you, girly! Go for them! :D

yeah it's a bit of a jump, but since this will be my professional rate, I don't want future clients googling me and finding out that I will do the same work for $60 you know? lol

Please don't delete this account! 3 of my favorite artists have ditched their old accounts in the last 2 months, and it's so depressing. It's almost...disrespectful to all your watchers and friends who've supported you over the years to just nix their favorite drawings. I often feel the urge to delete my old works, but then I feel bad for the people who've faved and commented, so I just put them into the scraps folder instead. By all means start a new "professional" account, but there's no need to erase this one. Just remove any identifying info from your Bloochikin DevID etc. and start over elsewhere.

I'm actually doing it because my boss has advised me to do so. I did delete my name and such from the page however, My dA is the first thing to pop up on google search regardless. I think it would be better if I simply create a new more professional account either by actually doing so, or deleting old deviations. If there are old works that you would like to have saved, I always have my deviations available for download.

I loved seeing your work here on dA as I find it an easier way to view it in one go than having to scroll through my tumblr feed. I am so so sadface right now. :( I do certainly hope you make a new account here. If you need to close up this old one, I've provided a handy dandy FAQ below

I did the same thing for this year, actually!  Instead of deleting my account, though, I instead deleted all of my folders, moved all my artwork into a new folder I named "?-2013" and separated my art into two sub folders called "Fan Art" and "Original Art".  All I kept was my Commissions Details.  I would highly recommend this because it really does give you a clean cut and you can start fresh in making you're DeviantART experience awesome for this year.  Also, you won't loss any of your watchers, comments, etc.  This way, you can also reminisce later when you want to look back on your old art and compare it to what you will have.

I hope this helps!

Personally I find looking back at old work really inspiring (especially when you go to a gallery of one of your favourite artists and see that they started out pretty much like you) but this is your art, your decision and we gotta respect it. I understand the need to step away from old memories. I just hope you'll leave the link to your new gallery before you delete this place. :)

I can understand the need to professionalize your career, and your art is certainly worthy of that title, but I do wonder if it's more than that...? I suppose it's a part of growing up, but looking back on your first works it does give a great perspective to how far you have come along. I don't see anything to be ashamed of in there. But in this interconnected age, I suppose one can't be too careful if you are seeking a good first impression.  


I watch you on tumblr and visit regularly, though the layout is still frustrating for me to deal with for long periods. I guess I'm getting old. I think I got you on facebook as well. I wish you the best of luck and success,  your work is so expressive and adorable, it's only a matter of time before you hit the big time. :)  I hope you won't forget your roots though, this website fostered some amazing talent despite the huge volume of submissions over the years.  It's always a bit sad seeing my artist friends move on, but I know you got a good head on your shoulders, you'll be alright. :)   Just be sure to pitch those HA sketches to the bigwigs you meet! That stuffs golden! :D
