Returning user, a bit more decent artist now, I think.
I recall when the art portal was launched, the examples of quality works scared the 13 y/o me off from posting art.
Truth be told, I stop frequenting the site when my childhood friendship ended, we used to browse daily and was a constant in between us. Browsing NG after all ended just made me sad, "she would've loved this" was always in my mind, wished things never happened the way they did and well, snowball effect, you get the point.
The wound seems to have finally healed, cause I'm actually quite happy to be back.
