(EDIT: LINKS TO OTHER ART ACCOUNTS HAVE BEEN DELETED BC FUCKOS ON THIS SITE USE IT TO HARASS ME AFTER I BLOCK THEM HERE)
hey long time no see guys. so as the title says, i won't be posting here anymore.
my main reason is reposts. though no one is reposting here, they ARE reposting to instagram, which is a huge problem for artists like me who draw fanart of popular things like overwatch. a huge majority of the images reposted have the deviantart watermark on it and i can only assume they found the art i've posted here thru a haphazard google search.
i'm very uncomfortable with other ppl posting my art to their accounts (unless commissioned) and i make a point of stating that i do not allow or give permission.
so i'm starting to crack down on reposters, even going so far as to put "do not repost" alongside my watermark as well as report those that i see.
it's tiring tbqh. sometimes i ask them very politely to delete the posts. some are polite back and comply. some ignore me. some block me. and i'm tired. deviantart makes it too easy for them to find.
deviantart, despite its intended purpose, isn't really a great place for artists, specifically lesser known artists. so yea. i'll still be viewing art here but as for posts, there'll be no more. you can still keep me on your watch list, maybe i'll make a new one in the future but as of now it's unlikely.
