As of today, I am officially leaving this account and using raeistic.deviantart.com
as my main account instead. All the art that is currently on here will stay, as will the account, but I am no longer go to be uploading anything onto here, so if you're still interested in following my art, feel free to unwatch this account and saunter on over to watch me on Raeistic, instead
That's the TL;DR version, and contains everything you need or care to know, so if you want, you can stop reading right here. However, in case anyone is interested in the reason why I'm doing this, here it is.
Basically, sweetangel1927 is a username I came up with years ago, when I was around 11 years old, and it's the name I've been using on sites ever since, simply because it's always available. However, recently, the myriad of random numbers in it, as well as the words it consists of, had started to bother me. I didn't want 'sweet' and 'angel' anymore, or a mashup of words, I wanted something different, something more unique, something more me. So I started thinking, and after a long, long time, finally came up with "Raeistic," a combination of the first letter of my name and a rather snappy suffix. I'm not going to lie, I had some inspirational help, but still, in the end, I decided I liked it. It was clean, it was neat, it had no numbers, and most importantly, it feels more me
Seeing as today is my 20th birthday, I decided it would be the perfect time to implement this new name. It seems fitting to leave behind this 'sweetangel' name that embodies who I was during my teenage years, and embrace a sort of fresh identity for myself, now that I better know who I'm going to be. I can't do it with all of my accounts, of course, not right away, but I can at least start with Deviantart, as well as accounts with easy-to-change names/URLs, such as Tumblr, etc. Accounts like Youtube are going to have to stay for now, though. But I thought it was really important for me to change my Deviantart account especially, because, being an Animation major, drawing is a big part of who I am now. And, since Deviantart is mainly illustration-related, it's even more important to establish the right identity for myself on here, because it's for the account that has the most to do with who I'm going to be. I'm still going to draw fanart and character designs and other stuff that interests me, but it'll just be under a fresh name, one that I no longer connect with my past self from before I knew exactly who I wanted to be.
Anyway, that's my rant. Like I said, I'm not going to delete or move any of the deviations I have here, because it'd be too much of a pain. Also, I'll continue to check on this account regularly for the next few days, but after that I'll only sign on intermittently to clear out any notification messages that collect.
See you on the other side!
