...starting DA from scratch. Seeing the success that I had back in high school because of all of the fan art that I have on this account is inspiring. Truly <3. But I find it frustrating and confusing when I post original content, original stories on my other account, and they just don't seem to stick.
Is fan art the only way to garner fans? Is it the only way to get people to pay attention to the creations that are closest to your heart? I know it definitely connects you with people because you share similar interests, but it's odd...deep down in my heart of hearts, all I want to do is create what's closest to my heart and what I really want to dedicate myself to, which are my own stories. I don't want to have to draw fan art just in order to bring more people closer to me--that doesn't feel right.
I'm hoping that in time, with or without fan art's aid, I'll be able to experience the success like I had back in those high school days where I had over 10 comments on each of my comic pages, where I open my inbox and have a crap-ton of notifications. I'm excited to have an audience again <3.
Phew! Seriously had to get that out of my system. IN OTHER NEWS!
I've officially begun the production of GRAE
. You can find it in all of these places:alexisnaquel.deviantart.com/tapastic.com/series/GRAEalexisnaquel.tumblr.com/www.patreon.com/alexisnaquel
I'm literally posting this thing all over the place XD, but it's because I freakin' love it. Unfortunately it hasn't gotten into the midst of all of the excitement...YET. It'll be getting there soon
. Meaning next week XD. GRAE updates every Saturday.
I'm SUPER tempted to have it update twice a week, BUT...I'm currently freelancing three different projects AND looking for full-time work in the process. And then drawing comic pages and making YouTube videos when I have a spare moment XD. Oh, AND MAKING MUSIC, LISTEN TO IT HERE: soundcloud.com/alexis-naquel/t…
Ah, hell. Here's my YouTube channel too while I'm at it
All of you that are still here, that are still watching and listening, thank you. Your presence is so appreciated. I never realized it before, but...it is. So, thank you. All of you that have been watching me, whether it's from the very beginning, or whether it's starting from this moment on.
If you are just starting to watch this page, watch my other page, as THIS ACCOUNT (UZUMAKI-AKANE-SAMA) IS (PRACTICALLY) NO LONGER ACTIVE.

All my love to every one of you
