I don't like eclipse and use the "old deviantart" I stop my payments for the core membership because deviantart will deactivate the old one and 79% of my watchers using the old da:

I missed the old FrontPage System (10 Years ago) so much and when Deviantart will deactivate the old da. I will think about leaving da ;-(

I cant find any sub category like Photo>>nature>>animal>>domesticated animal + and no combination with "most popular" in  8h ; 24h ; 3 days ;  1 week ; 1 month ; 1 year ; alltimes...)
I hate surfing by Hashtags This is deviantart not AdobeStock, Flickr or Instagram :-( !
Deviantart moves more and more from an Internet-side for deviant-artist to an "find" Inspirations side for uncreative artist or artthiefs... It goes to a big stock library for artthiefs....
Not a place to find other artist they work in the same field as you.....

So I will participate to the Sound of Silence movement.

The Sound Of Silence - DA StatementSo Eclipse is Coming

I'd like to organize a proactive event to show DA the possible results of a permanent Eclipse change-over. Instead of deactivating your accounts for good, or indefinitely boycotting the site, I'd like to make a Statement of Silence for those Users against Eclipse. Starting May 1st, I will not be active on Deviantart. I will not submit new deviations, journals or even visit the site for 3 Days time. From 12:00AM CST May 1st to 12:00am May 4th. (3 days) I ask all other Users who wish to keep old Deviantart to join me in this statement of silence. 
Not Only Is Eclipse Difficult to Navigate, It is so close to Plagiarism it isnt funny. How they aren't in a Lawsuit with Artstation is beyond me!
Look at these site comparisons!


There is also a petition going on :

So less time to take new animal photos.... I need so much time to do my Job.
One of my Jobs in the last month was to create a holographic show for a german circus (Roncalli). For the animals. We change the real animal with holographic animals....  You can see me in this TV report (I'm the guy with the dark shirt behind the holographic gauze :-)   p.dw.com/p/3PHUE

Just some little funny updates in my monochrome life :giggle:
Two weeks ago I spent some time in the wonderful Den Haag or The Hague. My girlfriend booked a room via airbnb and when we arrived she confessed me, that there MIGHT be some furry companions. Other people choose their hotel because of the service and the stars, she chooses her holiday by animals *sigh* So we arrived our holiday-room and met some adorable fuzzy friends: Two cats and four bunnies. Each of them lovely and very photogenic :aww: I even had the chance to take some outdoor cat pictures. Most of my feline models are housetigers so it felt great to have available light. Beside the cute critters we had a wonderful time in Den Haag and I just can recommend to visit this stunning town with all the culture and the wonderful beach. A little strange story, I really don't know if other people have problems like this too.. We sat at the beach and ate fish (Kibbeling to be very exact), it was really romantic and there were a lot of hungry seagulls. One sat next to my girlfriend looked at her and... started Meowing. ALL other seagulls did what seagulls use to do but this specific one sounded like a starving and dying cat. It was heartbreaking and completely wired... I really ask myself what went wrong in my life :lmao:
I was so impressed by all the galleries and all the art around me. Not to forget we found a LOT of cats there too. All healthy and obviously happy, a purrfect short-trip.
