10 YEARS OF DEVIANTART
I am finally announcing it properly on this journal. I am on indefinite hiatus at Deviantart platform! I am not closing this deviantart page, but won't be updated with new pieces.
Been a while without posting art for the same reasons I am going on a hiatus, but keep reading the ugly things and lack of principles around here. About art thieves being more protected than creators, about users being harrassed, about artists being blocked for nude art when some hardcore porn is on frontpage, popularity contests, galleries used as photobucket... All those have been going on for too long, it's nothing new, but recently just got worse and reminded me I should have done this a while ago. Most people I follow is also unactive here and moved into other platforms.When I think of Deviantart I have mostly great memories, and I am very thankful!!
This site is where I made some of my best friends and met some of my biggest art supporters. Where I felt part of a small and close community even when it was so big. Where I had a blast participating in events and making contests. Where I started commissions. Where I got my first print sold. I think I can say this place made me consider art as a way of living for me and friends encouraged me to do it. Many things I am happy and thankful for! Rules and policy doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon, but hopefully does and people like me can come back. For those who stay, I hope you have a great time here and keep improving as artist!
