All right everyone, the time has come! Remember how I said I've been planning to revamp the Genotype cast's characters for the longest time? Well, I'm finally ready to have something to show for the newly named "Progeny" story. I've decided I'll just make a new dA account for the new content for a couple of reasons. Though I've previously distrusted the management here on deviantArt, I'm willing to accept compromise and work with the site for the creative works I value. I can't find a better alternative to dA and I remembered there are plenty of people I know on this site, so you know what they say: "When life gives you lemons..." Well, I'd finish that statement with "pelt doofuses with the lemons", but that's not quite how the saying goes. Plus, it's worth mentioning that I've always wanted a psychological clean slate when it comes to me getting a new start with all of this.

Anyways, TL: DR, you can find me doing stuff here now:
gwussman.deviantart.com/

I'm almost ready to get the first six revamped character concepts out, so if any of you wonder what Gwuss is up to, you know where to find me. Once I transfer my watch list over to the new account, I'll be over on the new one from here on out.
  • Listening to: Mick Gordon/Omega Sparx- "I'm Back (To Rise)"
I've been gradually sketching up my character revamp concepts, but I came across a train of thought that just wouldn't quit and I think I should mention what's been on my mind. For any people that were fans of my dA OA videos back in the day, you might wanna keep readin'.

So I won't tell a lie here; it should be pretty obvious that I have a lot of regrets about doing that old video series and I blame no one but myself for it. It's weird to say since I always go off about how decent and cool you guys were about me quitting, but I seldom look back at those critiques and think "that was a good day". However, there's one elephant in the room I don't think I ever addressed in detail: My views on how I treated fetish art.

Quite frankly, I hate how I set up criteria and tried to say too much about art appealing to kinks and what not. I feel that I basically hit the main problem associated with judging and criticizing matters: being judgemental and critical for all the wrong reasons. For a lot of stuff that was basically harmless but came across as odd to many people, I made it seem as though it had worse implications than it actually did. And of course, I'm sure that crap was rich considering it came from a guy who never even talked about he looks at his own fetish (I'm not sure if I'll ever disclose what it is, but we'll see if I decide to mention it some time).

I wouldn't be surprised if people agreed to disagree with me on this, but I feel like I failed to achieve what I was looking for. With all of what I remember to be unintentionally convoluted reasoning, I think I never encouraged people to approach such fascinations in a way that felt healthy and modest. From what I gather, it was always "this doesn't work", but didn't put enough focus on the stuff that made odd yet manageable kinks work out. Basically, the TL;DR of my thoughts here is I feel that the way I once looked at fetish art in my old critique series was childish and made me a bit of a jerk. My apologies with that in mind.

And now that I'm older and have been wanting to redeem the dumb and cringey stuff I did years back, I'm... Stuck on this issue, honestly. How do I make up for this misstep aside from the lengthy "sorry" above? Perhaps just getting all of this off my chest will be enough, but I'm sure I'll figure out what I should do next with this concern of mine after I've completed my upcoming character concepts... (Inb4 I make a joke about how I draw in Valve time.)
