Raffle + Pretty Girl + Goodbye by mimelex Raffle + Pretty Girl + Goodbye by mimelex
Hello all ovo/

I wanted to write a journal but I guess almost nobody will read it lel and it's always better with a pretty girl anyway ovo/

So I'm doing a little raffle over there on Twitter, follow + retweet for a chance to win a sketch like this pretty lady here :>
twitter.com/mimelex/status/848…

It's been on my mind for a while now but I decided to move away from deviantart. I'm not deactivating my account for now, I'll log in from time to time to check messages, maybe post commissions ordered here, but I just feel down thinking about uploading pics here, it's pointless to go on like that when posting on Pixiv or Twitter is just making me excited.

I know many of my followers left or disappeared but for all those who stayed up till now, I thank you from the bottom of my heart (*≧▽≦)

For those who still want to see my drawings I'll be using my Pixiv and Twitter accounts like I always did - links below
Pixiv - My blog - :twitter: Twitter - :facebook: Facebook - Online store

I feel the same to be honest xD

Yeah, Pixiv is more better in the case of views, ratings and audience in my personal experience than deviantART, because, Pixiv is mainly for Anime stuff =p so of course cute anime drawing stuff like yours and mine, pixiv is really perfect place for it. Some example, more than 3 Years i active, uploading my 161 works so far on dA, my watchers are about <2000 or so. And on Pixiv, i can get >5000 followers in just less than 2 years with my 62 works. (Not intended to show off or anything, but this is my own experience). So i kinda understand why you feel more excited on Pixix than dA since i feel the same haha.

But still my suggestion you better still uploading your works on both site either dA or Pixiv.

gah it feels like people think I'm leaving because I'm not popular here xD Honestly I just don't like deviantArt anymore. And well, the feedback I get, a lot of copy-paste comments, sometimes I wonder if they actually looked at the art :p or the notes I get too omg orz
When you do advertising on twitter where you have exactly 60 followers, and it's more effective than da where you have 1000+ followers, something is wrong right?

Honestly I think there is a big anime community here, you just have to stuff the art in their mouth or they won't look at it XD but when you browse you see a lot of stolen, traced, "render" art, colored manga panel so... I don't know what to say :p maybe I just belong in Pixiv, like you said xD
But well, once you just work your ass off and do a drawing you're proud of, post it on Pixiv and it's more popular than what you usually do and it feels rewarding. Here it's like you throw a dice, ah too bad you got 1, nobody will look at your art xD

Don't worry about bragging :p I think I should get over 5000 followers probably during summer >w<

Well so much more I could say, like almost no one asking for request on Pixiv, I got only one, politely refused and the guy didn't complain, no one trying to scam me, no one complaining about deep cleavage... and having mostly my boobs drawing popular here gets me a lot of pervert commission I don't feel comfortable drawing, or sometimes it feels like I'm a last resort, "he's not popular so he should accept right?"... I might just want to stop drawing if I keep posting here, that's what I'm afraid of :/

No no i'm not saying you lost audience or not popular on dA, the one i mention above is my personal experience. I know you have your own reason for this, but still even we have different reason, we have the same thinking about dA and Pixiv, that's what i mean. :o

oh ok it's just that someone else was thinking that so I was just wondering ( ̄▽ ̄) but it's nice to see other people think the same as me ovo/ I come here every now and then to check messages but with the things I see I really don't want to post again orz and I get more watchers when I don't post anyway XD XD XD

oh it's not really moving, I'm not using Twitter the same way I use Pixiv or da, I post more sketches and do some advertising too. And to be honest I already made Pixiv my new home a couple of years ago (๑°꒳°๑)
I also have facebook but I don't like it... I can get away with just copy-pasting what I post on Twitter so I'm still using it :p
I looked into other sites too but Pixiv is where I belong, I think :> but it's easier to keep in touch with Twitter so I'll be happy if you follow me there ovo/ or there's still my blog if you don't want to make a new account for every artist leaving da orz

I know DA is terrible in general. Hmm I'll take a peak once in a while, just not a fan of looking through multiple websites XD

err what the hell target audience? barely anyone follows me on twitter but I'm having fun there, I just feel like this site is going shit so I'm leaving and it has little to do with audience :p
tbh for a loooong while I've been doing much much much better on Pixiv while I never ever did any advertising or stuff like joining groups :p

seeing the feedback I got after I posted this sure hurts and makes me think I'm doing the right thing. Seriously, I got a note asking me to join a group.Well let's look at the bright side, if barely anyone cares that I'm leaving that means nobody will be sad ovo/ lel now let's cheer up with some cute blondes ;w;

oh and thank you, I'll probably need a lot of luck now since I was getting all my commissions from here orz looking into cheap conventions right now =v=
