It is with regret I have to say that the group that was born out of nothing and helped us all get to know each other has unfortunately run it's course and we just don't have the resources or the energy to support the running of this group anymore.
This group was really fun, I personally learnt a lot by hanging out with the coolest artists in the world and now the social media has evolved enough to allow us to easily host contest without much of the admin that DA requires. I had a chat with monkeybread and he eluded to this fact, I just wanted to see it for myself.
What is going to happen to the gallery you ask?
Well, the folders are still going to stay there for inspiration but the admins are no longer to keep a watch since that in itself requires countless hours which I'd rather they used somewhere else.
Will I change my mind?
I'm definitely open to ideas, but you have to be committed if you want to take over this group. If you just want to have a laugh, please start a new group. If you've built a group of this size and quality and are still happy to take this one on, get in touch.
I want to thank every admin that made this journey possible and for their endless dedication towards creating something that lasted this long.
this was my fav group. very sad
You could build a new admin team to take over the group.
I would gladly take it over; I don't want to see it go. And I have plenty of time to run this group.
Sketchathon for eva!
it was cool to be a part of it! all the best for your future
sad news indeed as this group was always a source of inspiration...that being said, completely understandable decision as well considering how many artists have left DA for other social media groups. Thank you for running the group for so long!
Indeed very sad to see this group go I remember the competition and speedpainting times and how much I learned back then just taking part in them!
Sad to see you guys go!
