I don't like where this website is going
Like I said, it seems to me that "popularity" or just simple recognition for one's work on this website is kinda precluded to you if you don't draw Pokèmon or sweet little ponies (which I love both, but it's not where I want to go with my art).
It's a paradox that I've been getting WAY more recognition for my work on my facebook page rather than here, and this is an ART COMMUNITY WEBSITE.
That's what I mean when I say that I'm not really loving it here. I've been struggling for years to have my work noticed and I haven't really gotten anywhere. Of the 250 watchers I managed to earn in 5 YEARS, I can count the ones that follow my work on one hand. And by "follow" I mean that they take the time to +fav my work, not even comment on it. You see the point?
Of course it's not the website's fault, it's the COMMUNITY. It seems to me that it's just having to deal with a bunch of 15 year olds......it just turned VERY immature and it's not a positive experience for me.
So I'm not saying I'll be leaving, because there are still a few things on this website that I find useful (the Portfolio, for example), but I won't be posting stuff, I think.
If you REALLY like my art please take the time to like my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter/Instagram, all the links are on my profile page.
It goes without saying that the "free art" thing is cancelled, since in these weeks I have earned a lot of watchers on my facebook page, but almost NONE of them came from DA, and I earned in other ways.
It doesn't even feel bad, you know....even though I've been on this site for a few years. It just doesn't do it for me anymore.
I hope everyone understands (if anyone gives a shit).
I repeat, I'll be way more active on Facebook and Instagram.
My Facebook page is purely for work purposes and my Instagram is both for that and for some personal stuff.
See you around!
