*blows off dust from account*
Hello. I'm Dan. I draw things. Sometimes for money. Some of you may remember I used to post here somewhat frequently. And then everything changed when Facebook , tumblr, twitter, instagram and so on become the place you could just drop a pic and go. And for awhile, it was awesome. Instagram, alone, put me in touch with a LOT of people, both new and people I've admired for the longest time.
There's a "but" coming.....Tumblr got scared and banned all nudity....Facebook/Instagram screwed with their posting algorithms to point people to the high-traffic earners and away from the every-day artist or those who may not have a huge following. Even people with substantial followings have noticed their traffic severely cut. So perhaps, the social media honeymoon is over.
So maybe this will be a Deviant Art renaissance? I haven't logged in here for the longest time but there's all the art people who have posted and I didn't have to surf and scroll to find it. It could be time to look at this place again with fresh eyes.
I'm still elsewhere in other communities too:
CLICK for Instagram : lots and lots of sketches and work in progress shots
