It's been a while but as you guys might have already guessed, I decided not to delete/store my old artwork. Thanks again to those who gave their opinions as well as their support.
What changed in DA's algorithm that it decided to put a few of my old MLP drawings on the front page, or at least in the "What's Hot" section now? I noticed the sudden influx this past week which surprised me until I saw it for myself. I see this as a potential issue for a couple reasons:
1. They're old. Like I think the oldest one being back from 2012 and that was six years ago. While I may have been proud of them back then, looking back I can see so many things I could perhaps do better in retrospect. Therefore I really don't think they should be on the front and there are more pictures out there that are milestones better than what I drew four to six years ago.
2. I'm no longer interested in drawing MLP like I was before, something I never really addressed but my inspirations gradually shifted away from it towards other ideas. And I don't want folks to be following me if that's what they are expecting to see. The last pony-related picture I did was back in 2014. I still follow people of interest within the MLP fandom because I still like their art or content in general, but as for me I don't have as much free time as I used to and I'd prefer spending that time I have working on other ideas that interest me right now. The only thing I can see myself doing are re-do's of old MLP pictures, but that's about it. I know this may disappoint new followers who may have come after seeing the pictures but I'm sorry, it's the truth. And feel free to un-follow me.
So before I make any rash decisions without informing anyone, I wanted to get any opinions from you all, both new and old followers, about what I should do if anything at all. Naturally my instincts tell me to just store all my MLP deviations since they no longer reflect my current interest, therefore removing them from the "What's Hot" page and problem solved right? But I don't want to stop any discussions or critiques that may be happening on them. Or just carry on like business as usual?
