I wanted to let you know that from now on, I will no longer be posting works of certain paleoartistic subjects on DeviantArt. There will still probably be new paleoart uploaded in this gallery in the future, and this will not affect the spec bio art, unless at some point I deem it necessary. If I do produce paleoart not suited for dA in the future, I'll try to find some other venue to make it publicly available. 

There used to be a time I wondered why so many paleoartists were leaving dA. I no longer do. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

I feel you shouldn't let the words of some unruly jerks keep you from holding back your passions and work. Instead keep making stuff like this to stick it to them.

Is this because of Tyrannosaurid integument? I mean, you can always disable the comments.

May I ask what happened?  Has DA decided that paleoart is no longer acceptable or is it certain types of paleoart?

Deviantart hasn't done anything, it's a strictly personal decision.

Okay.  Well, I know that some artists have dropped out of some art websites because of decisions by the website administrators.

Miksi paleoartistit häipyvät dAsta?

En tietenkään voi puhua kaikkien puolesta, mutta muillakin tuntuu olevan vastaava kokemus, ettei tämä vaan ole oikea paikka. Ei sushiakaan kannata myydä snägärillä.

Ok. Sosiaalinen media on sosiaalinen media kaikkialla missä asioita voi kommentoida ja huudella nimimerkin takaa. Olen itse saanut oman osani, enkä jaksa jokaisen tyhmemmän kommentin takia päivääni pilata. Tsemppiä ja jaksamista, hyvää alkanutta vuotta! :thumbsup:

I both understand and respect your decision. If/when you decide on a place to post your paleoart please let us know! You're easily among my favorite artists with a web presence and it'd be a pity to lose out on that.

Thank you. I haven't decided yet what to do with such art, if and when I have some to post. I'll make an update when there is something to share.

What platform do you think you'll go with?  You on tumblr or instagram?  I'll follow you there, I really enjoy seeing your bio art.

and why tho? art thieves? haters?

I don't have a tumblr, instagram or anything of the sort. Last year I seriously considered setting up a blog, though for the rational fantasy stuff rather than paleoart. I haven't really decided yet.

Please don't let the autists chase you away. Just ignore their screeching. I will miss seeing your work.

What's wrong, and why do so many paleo-artists leave? Is it because of the art thieves?

They leave because so many people get in arguments about certain subjects. Their art is no longer appreciated, it is ignored.

I'd disagree. 

Plenty of paleoartists are thriving here, and get good commentary and are appreciated. Take for example, Gabriel Ugeto.

I didn't say that most are unsuccessful. Just that those who have left may have had reasons similar to the ones I gave. The positivity in this site absolutely outweighs the negativity.
