phineasRILEY has started a donation pool!
35 / 1,000
I plan to hold a contest in the future, and would like to be able to give points to the winners. :heart:

You must be logged in to donate.


With the exception of a SS gift, I will no longer be posting my work to dA.

However, this doesn't mean I'm leaving. I will still be keeping up with the artists I watch, and will be on the lookout for more inspiring work. At the present moment, I'm not yet sure where I will share my work; I'm trying to decide between tumblr or another form of blog.

I don't expect this to impact many people because I don't even have that many watchers to begin with, but I will be sure to post a link to my new corner of the web for those who are actually interested.

I appreciate all the support and feedback I've received in regard to my work.

And for those wondering "why" - let's just say I had a revelation recently about my identity as an artist. With 2013 looming around the corner, and the energies so wonderfully active at this time of year, I realized I needed a change. This is only part of the change... but it's a necessary one, and one I hope will bring me much more satisfaction as an artist from here on out.

Who knows? Maybe something will change in the future that will bring me back to dA. But I've always felt a little out-of-place here, and what with this site becoming fandom central, I feel like my own work is better suited for someplace different.

Wishing you all the best,

I'm more of a writer, really.

Most of my stories have a central theme of gender identity. I prefer writing fantasy, supernatural/paranormal, sci-fi, dark/psychological or action/adventure stories. Sometimes all of them combined into one.

I'm actually a very happy and friendly person, so don't feel intimidated. :heart:

A quick happy birthday from a friend :) unless I've got the date wrong? In my preemptive defense it is really late right now :0 but happy day regardless! I'll try to think of something nice I can do for it.

Thank you - the big 20. It's such an odd number. I most definitely don't feel "old." :B

Ahh, don't worry about it. I'm just happy to hear from you.

Hello. :) I don't expect you to remember me, but many moons ago you did a sketch for me. It was a drawing of...of my inner self I believe?
Anyway... I don't know how to quite say this, but that sketch, and what you said about me, resonated really deeply. I found myself thinking about it recently, so I decided to go take a look at it again. Would you happen to still have the drawing? I'd really like to see it again to remind myself.

Of course I remember you. I have to admit I'm a little surprised though. I wasn't expecting anyone here to really resonate with those types of paintings. I'm happy it meant something to you!

I believe this is the one?

Sorry. I originally had it in my scrapbook, but I did some cleaning a while back since I no longer post work here.

Thanks for dropping by!
