And I think that, if you feel like a new profile could help you take a step you're unable to take right now, making a new profile might be the right choise!
is actually changing your username.
A couple of artists that have outgrown their childhood mindsets on
their accounts have changed their names and they personally
feel a lot better, as if they have moved on.
If you did this here, people will understand.
Its like a gaming company making new franchises.
They will keep the memories and fans they had throughout the years,
but with their new installments, people will realise that they are progressing forward
without forgetting what makes them so memorable.
That's what I think anyway.
If you really want to transfer, I don't really mind.
Just make sure you come up with a sleek username, and that it sounds good too
But I still dont entirely understand why you cant do all those things on this account.
YOU could just put all your old artwork in a separate gallery folder so they wont be in your featured gallery.
After creating a new one I felt free to start new things and move on. Funny how small things can change something so much.
Still it is all up to you. You could also do a 'try out' phase and not link here immediately and wait how you feel about it. ^^
With that said, I would of course follow you to a new account, I just dont think it is needed.
I'm sure that most of us - myself included - will follow your new account if you wish to move ^w^
I sure will -- your stuff's incredible.
i completely understand
Do what you will. I'm sure most of us will follow you.
And I'm so curious how your art will change Just let us know your new name, please! ^^
(And I'm really sorry if I made any mistake. My english isn't very well. Sorry again ^^')
You've had this profile for a long time. You have a lot of history on it and information to match. You have old work that you are not as proud of as you once were, but that is okay. The joys of Deviantart is that nothing is permanent. You can delete them if you are no longer proud of them or move them to a folder of their own so everyone can see the evolution an artist takes in his or her work. But what purpose will the new account really serve? If you are making it because the themes you are creating now do not match the ones currently with this page, that's fine and understandable. (I've done it and when I was done making work of a different theme, I returned to my old account and left the new one up and open so people can still enjoy the work on it). But if you're doing it so you can mentally separate yourself from your past or current work, it makes sense, but why go though the trouble to do it?
Your profile should not be something you obligate to make a certain kind of work for, it is something that should be dedicated to the work you make period, no matter the evolution or style. Cocoaprints, for me, started off as a profile for hamster images, later evolved into anthromorphic images. Before I made the second account, star wars and sci fi related images. What it is right now, is dominated by Fable fanart because I am no longer letting my profile dictate what I should and should not post on my profile.
Your profile should be a description and homage to you and your work. If there's a need for change, then change it, but why get rid of it or abandon it?
I completely agree
Besides it is much more interesting to look at a profile that has a history. Showing the growth and evolvement of the artist. Rather than an empty one with just one type of work ;/
And you shouldn’t be felling like you’re attached or obligated to the watchers to stick to the current style. Because it gets boring for them too you know, to watch one and the same type over and over again.
So go on, show us what you got
