Update 6/12: Nothing can be done and there's no hope of restoring anything.
To whoever did this: you're a piece of shit. I only hope that one day you understand the actual depth of your act of cruelty.
To anyone that showed kindness: thank you. It means something. :heart:
A couple of days ago, we found out today that arachnid15 (https://www.deviantart.com/arachnid15)'s account had been hacked. On October 18, 2016, his email address was changed and his account deactivated. NOT by him.
All of arachnid15 (https://www.deviantart.com/arachnid15)'s deviantArt history has been erased.
The Evil Penis legacy.
The first full frontal male DD on the site.
500 deviations and all your comments. All of his.
Sometimes it's so easy to dismiss this place.. to focus on all the things it ISN'T and forget what it actually is. For all of its faults and misgivings and lack of focus on art, every time i surf the web for inspiration or instruction I always end up coming back here because nowhere else on the net gives me as much exposure to inspiration as dA.
SO i just want to share some of that inspiration right back.... check out the old man on scratchboard.. holy shit! Have you any idea how difficult scratchboard is?! I'm.. so amazed... and now i'm gonna run off and see if i can create something of my own :)
Love to all you creative people :heart:
