I'm considering shutting down my deviantart site. Over time I've grown more an more disgusted with it. There's true talent here, but you have to sift through piles of of crap to find it. I'm tired of the myspace attention-seekers, I'm tired of the blatant pornography, I'm disgusted with the fact that requesting critique is now limited to those that pay money to the website... I could list even more reasons, but as it stands, the only purpose for deviantart is having an additional venue for people to find my artwork. Right now, I'm wondering if it's worth it.
If I do keep my account, I'll likely remove all but the old artwork and only use it as a spot to post sketches. Anyone still interested in seeing my finished work can do so at www.amandabarham.com and sketches will be posted there as well.
