Journal History

Activity


I am going to end my association with deviant art in 2019 - January.
If anyone is still interested in what I am doing you can visit my work via these links:
I have been posting work on this site for 11 years, but I am rethinking that. I will decide by the end of this month whether I wish to remain here. In all this time time I have not been honored with a DD too. I am planning on focusing on other sites instead, although there are many artists I love on here.

Interests
(Glutton for punishment - I am trying yet again- 8/11/2017) to get some sort of DD nod, but this was the consequence of my past effort via another group I thought I stood a chance with.)


And this is the response I got:

----------
(id removed for the sake of their privacy) said the following:

"Hello!
I took a look at your gallery and I think you're doing a great job. It's not quite the DD skill level yet, but you are very close and I expect that with a bit of development, you'll definitely get to be featured eventually.
Have a good weekend."


----------
And this was my response to 'them':

"I honestly do not know what to say to that after some of the DDs I've seen here already.
Ah well.
Consider my work a lost cause and drop me off your radar.
Thanks."

I'm not going to bother with the folks who run this site.  I've seen some of the work that gets the DD nod and can only wonder what the criteria is, so I'm washing my hands of the whole endeavor and just doing what I want to do.
I've been a deviant for 7 years now by the way.
