This is very important if you have any form of interest in what I post!
I've decided after five years of owning this account that I want to (somewhat) start over.
I'm going to be deleting all of my cosplay pictures off of this site and also my most recent drawings.
I'll go more into detail on why in a sec but here's the new accounts. (I made one for cosplay and one for my art)
Okay so the first reason is my username
When I made this account I was a twelve year old weeaboo and I thought of a very weeaboo username. Last year I decided to seriously think about a handle name which became Catulus. I use this for my youtube channel, it's my watermark on both my drawings and photo's and I use it as username on my anime list and steam (among other things)
Because you have to have a premium membership to change your username on deviantart I left this account as it is for a very long time. (to be fair I haven't used dA much in the past year)
But I finally decided I wanted to be more profecional on here too and therefore I now have 2 new accounts that both include Catulus in the name.
Why two tho?
On this account I started by posting drawings. Once I started cosplaying I also decided to upload those pictures on here. (as that's what my friends did)
The downside is they kind of overshadow eachother. Some people are interested in my cosplays but couldn't care less about my art work and vise versa.
(Not necessarily a negative thing just that different people have different interests)
Like I said earlier I'd like to have a fresh start.
There was a time where I talked to a bunch of people on here and I was quite active in tge deviantart community. however as I got more creepy messages from men twice my age I got less and less exited about logging into deviantart...
I'm pretty sure my cosplay account is still going to get those messages. But atleast this way I can be more involved in the art community with my art account.
My final reason
Some of you may know I'm an art student studying game art and I just recently finished my first year. I've learnt a lot in such a short period of time and I realised I should start thinking about how I'm going to make money.
This summer holidays I'm going to really work on developing an art style that I would call my brand. I'm currently very inspired by Camilla d'Erico's work and I also very much love the art style of the Skullgirls game. The thing is these styles are very different from eachother and also very different from the anime art style I've developed over the years.
I have been practacing different art styles already but now I want to get serious.
I want one specific art style that I'll then use to create prints.
I have considered selling prints of my cosplays but I don't have a lot of super impressive costumes and the people who have asked for prints/commisioned pictures all wanted lewd photo's. I mean it's cool if you're into that stuff but I'm still underaged and I don't think a lot of people realise that :')
Welp that's my explanation Congrats if you made it this far!
Now I'm just gonna convince you to follow my new accounts :^)
Love cosplay pictures and occasional fashion posts? Then you should watch my cosplay account!
I have already posted all of my old cosplay pictures onto this account (I selected my favourite)
And I still have 4 completely new unseen cosplay shoots that I will be uploading in the upcoming weeks!
The first being Makise Kurisu from Steins;Gate!
Fun fact about the other 3 cosplays: I did all 3 photoshoots in ONE day! and I've actually planned to do another shoot upcoming sunday with a minimum of TWO new cosplays that I'll be photographing.
Also now that it's purely cosplay and fashion related I'll be using scapts to upload cosplay progress! so you can see little sneak peeks of upcoming costunes~
Did I convince you yet? Cosplay not your thing?
Well then maybe you'd be interested to see my art work!
I have a whole list of fanart projects I'm working on
Here's just a few fanart pieces I'll be making!
- Animal Crossing
- Sailor Moon
- Cardcaptor Sakura
- Super Sonico
I also have some origional series I'm planning on working on like working with specific colour palets and doing draw challenges such as the 3, 2 and 1 marker challenge!
This summer I'm going to work on 2D animation and I'll be posting all about it in my journals where I'll also talk about my other projects and idea's!
This is the end! I would like to thank all the nice friend I made over the years for being chill people. It's a shame I barely talk to any of you guys anymore.
Hope you're having a nice day and I bid you farewell~
