As you may have noticed, these past few months have been relatively quiet when it comes to art submitted by me here on dA. I wanted to give a quick update as to what was going on and exactly why the only artwork that has popped up recently on my account has been related mostly to anything and everything not relating to EBC.
As you all know, I mentioned I was going on hiatus back in January due to my return to school after two full years away, and so far that's been the primary reason why I've only been uploading icons, character designs, and a few fully finished pictures for Starborn-Alignment.
But there was also another reason. I personally wanted to focus on small side projects that don't involve EmpiresBeforeClans, and that's actually why I'm making this journal today. As many of you have seen, Conflict of Interest has taken up a lot of my time recently due to how large the universe of it is going to be, but that's not the only project I've had hiding in the background. Back in 2012, while I had only just become an admin of EBC, I was also a part of another roleplay group that involved felines in what was known as the City of Sundown. Unfortunately, the founder of the group disappeared sometime in the fall of that year due to personal conflicts, and the group ended up ultimately "dying" due to my inability to do much as a simple mod.
The group has tried resurrecting itself twice now, once while I was a mod of City-Of-Sundown
and once more when somebody else who had been a mod of the group decided to make a new group altogether. Unfortunately, real life got in the way and the second reboot never really came to pass.
I always felt bad about how the group had ended, and because of that I decided to take it into my own hands and see if I could potentially make a new group, expanding on some aspects for CoS and revitalizing the group so that it's a bit less of a niche crowd and more of a community that could potentially grow into something amazing. That's one of the main reasons I've been so quiet. I've been working on :devtwlight-ascending:, and it is preparing to open to new members on May 15th and will close on July 15th. Feel free to check it out.
For Any and All Potential Members
Aside from that I've also been working on Conflict of Interest, which is a very expansive group following bipedal felines from three different nations going to war with each other and the like! We're technically open for members (despite the fact that I have a long list of things to still work on) and if you want to check that out feel free as well.
Anyway, that's all I wanted to say,
