Rex Smeal


"Dojang" was my name on this website when I was still a child, and I guess for me this account is linked to a lot of childish things. Back then I drew like a child, argued like a child, I critiqued like a child, I bathed in easy compliments like a child. I made childish mistakes. So when I tired of being a child, I moved to tumblr, and learned some humility and some lessons about coherence, audience and polish.

It's a little cold on tumblr. I find myself scrolling through page after page of great work and not really taking notice of any of it. The people who see my work are almost never artists, and when they are, there's never real interaction. I miss that. I'm coming back to deviantart, but I don't want to build on the ramshackle foundations I cobbled together as a child. My new account is monkeyKnot - and I hope you'll all migrate there. For a while I'll be posting work from my tumblr, but there'll be some exciting new stuff soon.

Thanks guys, I look forward to catching up with all of you!
(And, y'know, learning all the weird changes the wacky dev team on this place have made while I was out. I don't know what half the nonsense around this journal is...Am I getting old?!?)

someone jumped me with a massive job (prolly won't get posted over here), so i've had to cut my hiatus short.
