After sitting on it and thinking about it, I've decided to put all of my deviations in storage and remove my presence from DA.
I know I've done this "leaving DA" thing before but now, I look at all the activity I've had over social media, versus what DA has or hasnt done for me, and I realise it's futile to try and make a presence here.
I've been on DA since high school, with my very earliest account
. I made friends because of this site, but I felt, time and time again, that despite my own efforts to make a presence on here, I garnered very little attention despite the effort I put in.
I also felt that if a person didnt have a big following on DA, then legit complaints wouldnt be heeded. That is, until someone with a big following complained about the same issue.
I wont deactivate my account because I sometimes do like to visit and review the comments and activity my work has received in the past but honestly, that's the only reason.
Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter... my work receives more attention and I dont have to be an artist that draws fanart to get commissions.
With that in mind, if anyone wishes to follow me on social media, here is where you can find me:FacebookBlogspotInstagram
Come say hello. I will gradually be whittling down my watch list and following artists on their other social media, if available.
Toodles folks. It's been a joy.
