Hey, hello there! It's been a while since I've used DeviantArt. Almost two years have passed and I have...um....24k notifications sitting in my inbox. There wasn't one specific reason I stopped using DA to be truthful, just a lot of little things that caused me to be disinterested in the overall experience here. One was the constant "you can't do that without a premium membership" and another was the constant complaining by artists here. Yeah, the artists, not the critiquers. I also decided I didn't want to be known as "That guy with a DeviantArt page" as it was beginning to be a stigmata with that kind of attention foisted upon users. There's a lot of...eh, "questionable" art that gets uploaded here and being associated with DA was almost as bad as being associated with Tumblr.

However I'm told that many people find my work exclusively through google searches which links them here, then they ask me why I only update my site and post to forums or Instagram. Well, ok, I'll try DA again for a while and see how that goes. It's update time!

I'm not a great artist by any means, but I know what you're saying. The only thing i use DA for now is pretty much just a gallery storage. I dont write or waste alot of time. Just post my art to catalog it in a sense. You have great stuff man, keep doing your thing.

I know how you feel.
I've had four or five dA accounts before this one; I've deleted them because I felt shocked, shocked by the classical "My Little Pony Decapitation Elbow Fetish Anthromorphic Sonic Crossover 'Art'" that flooded the site. I did not wanted to be part of that...disgusting bulls*it

! But now I've learned: DeviantArt is just like Life; You've got to walk the right path, with the righteous and good people, always do the best you can, always aiming for the good will, otherwise you will end very bad.

Yeah, the questionable "art" on here, as well as my busy schedule the last few months (finally graduated college) kept me from being active. Glad to see you're back though. :)

LOL, oh I agree about the questionable content on this site. xD I forget that stuff like that is posted on here to be honest because I have the mature content blocker enabled. xD
But yay! You'll be posting stuff again! Looking forward to it! :D

Welcome back! Looking forward to see what cool creations you have in store for the new year, especially with Power Of The Primes (basically more Combiner Wars with Deluxes that have Leader-size armor and Headmasters in Pretender armor that's also a Targetmaster) coming next month.

I see. That all makes sense. I too have disliked being here because of "There's a lot of...eh, "questionable" art that gets uploaded here and being associated with DA was almost as bad as being associated with Tumblr."
But I get a lot of views here, which helps business, and there are some really cool people here too. In fact, for a while now I have vented about the state of the world and life in general in my deviant journal entries because a lot of intelligent and down-to-earth people reply. They don't always agree with me, and sometimes help me understand a different point of view.
