Guess I gotta start shooting pokeballs.. LOL...

I know I haven't been around much in the last couple years. I hope all the people I've known thru my time here are doing well and smiling. I remember how much dA meant to me when I was cutting my teeth on this whole art thing and how much the support meant to me and gave me the energy to create more. I think without dA I wouldn't be in the place I am now.

Yeah, it's changed since I started here or maybe I have. Who knows. I think it's more a social site with art (and some great art) now as apposed to an art site with some social intent and I guess that's just the way it has to be when you start talking the kind of member numbers, and age demo, that this site has generated.

Well I'll keep throwing new stuff up from time to time and hope that someone can see it and maybe be a little inspired from it or at least maybe like it. :D

Love and Peace to you all...

Dave

Honestly, you're work is some of the best I've seen on here. I only get on every few months or so, and I always look forward to what you produce.

You took the words right out of my mouth...

You know things are fucked when I start quoting Meatloaf ;) I feel the same way about dA. I will always have a place in my heart for it and I love the friends I've come to know on here, but I don't have the motivation for it any more and I don't feel like I'm getting anything out of being here beyond the obligation of dealing with group submissions from people who blindly post stuff to as many places as possible.

What's even better is when you see something like this [link] and wonder how we could ever compete with such an artistic masterpiece or this profound portrait... [link] :D

It was because of Deviantart that I found you! Your work has inspired me so much and it's always a pleasure seeing an upload from you. I have no words for how much I respect you and love your work. I'll keep following the DA here and your website. Thank you, Dave, for gracing us with the joy and brilliance of your photos.

Oh Davenit! you have inspired me. Though I fall very short from what you put out there, even if it is just thrown. I wish I could even begin to figure out your techiniques, and equipment set up! Don't forget about us!

I see you've been pretty active on Google+ - how's that working out for you? :hmm: 500px seems to be the place for showcasing serious photography these days - I browse there most days, and the quality knocks my socks off! :faint:

I still chuckle when I remember Davemo and all the fun & games he got up to. :lol:

I'm still around dA - don't browse much, just hang out with friends and check out the art that shows up in my devwatch. :gallery:

I joined the 500px party too late. Impossible to get noticed there unless you spend hours up hours schmoozing and I just don't have the time. Anyhow it's mostly portraits and nature shots. I very rarely see anything like mine up there. Seems like its the same people getting noticed all the time also. Same game, different place IMO. Google+ is ok but still can't spend enough time there.

LOL. Davemo was a blast and you never know when he may return. :D

I'm moving along myself... My membership is set to end in 4 weeks and I think I'm going to pass on renewing it this time... I'll still hang around and even post here, but the site I came to love 6 years ago is no longer what it used to be... or, as you say, maybe it's me that's changed. Either way, 500px seems to fit my current mindset better... although the "awesome" membership sure seems rather pricey... $50? Really?

Still one of my favorite artists if not the favorite artist of mine. This site has definitely lost its touch, but that is just one of the perks with popularity.

I haven't been active on here in a while either, only visiting to check my messages. But I have been following your work on Google+ more :)

Your work is incredibly creative and very inspiring. I agree though- this site has become more social, but hopefully the great artists, like yourself, will continue to post.

Yeah, I get that feeling too. I guess that will happen to a site as it gets bigger. Oh well, hope you still upload your stuff here :ahoy:
