Rawr! Finally, a new journal post!

Fri Jan 11, 2013, 11:47 AM
Dear Reader

I have become spread thinly across the web and must apologise for my own shockingly low rate of response to comments and keeping up with those I watch.  I'm finding the Deviant Art layout overly fussy and submitting pieces unnecessarily complicated (and my god - please revise those categories!).  The mobile layouts are still fairly dire.  Also non-DA users struggle to navigate around galleries when I send them links.  I'm guessing I don't help my using too many widget-gadgets on my profile page. So, I'm guilty of adding to this clutter. ;)  I'm also baffled by how the DA community functions - just getting to the forums is a mystery to me and the competitions are too large, the prizes meaningless.  I hate live chat and shout-boxes.  Paying cash out from shop profits is virtually impossible unless it's dividable by pie, mmm pie, and yet I'm paying for the privilege of having a DA premium membership (for the moment).  Vanity publishing is cheaper elsewhere, no really, it is.  Nonetheless - DA is a font of creativity and a majority of the accounts post only their own unique creations, so in that way it is still superior to the steal, share and reblog nature of social networking sites, but man, it could be better!

Anyhow, I am well.  The day job, working at a couple of mental health drop-ins, hasn't killed me yet, I'm selling quite a few dungeon sections, taking the odd map commission and I decided that it was time to update my journal.  But rather than list everything I'm doing on the web and in the Real World, you can come and visit me by following the links below. ;)

Almost no profit - mainly for fun.



If you like my monsters check out my DA portfolio page:  billiambabble.artworkfolio.com… - there's a few monsters on that page which aren't currently in the gallery here (don't ask why, and maybe they won't EAT you)



I hope you are well / happy / content and that your own creativity never stalls! :)

Monster Hugs,, maulings and regards,
Billiam B / Will M.

I'm surprised you find it fussy as they've done a lot to de-clutter it in the last few years (particularly noticeable on deviation pages). I suppose it depends what exactly you're talking about.

I'm also baffled by how the DA community functions - just getting to the forums is a mystery to me and the competitions are too large, the prizes meaningless.
Groups solves most of that I think. I agree about the official contests which is why the smaller ones are better.

Here are a few you might like. :shrug:
