I remember making a variety of those puppet things because I liked them and thought they were a unique sort of themed avatar for a community to have. Though I was here even before NDA was using phpBB as its forum...! I first joined this site probably in 2003 and ended up getting a lot of helpful critique on my old art
. I've probably come and gone throughout the years and seem to remember the site being more active than it is currently, which is too bad, since this has been such a great place for me to get feedback on my fantasy art.
My activity these days is probably sort of restricted to giving comments and critique and stuff instead of showing off my own artwork, but I do enjoy helping people where I can and giving redlines and stuff. I haven't really been very active recently though since I was sort of busy being in another continent for the last several weeks. xD
It would be nice if something could be done to improve the activity levels here, though it will probably always be a bit of a struggle as long as registration is disabled to prevent bots from joining, which is too bad.
