ECLIPSE: will you stay or go?

ECLIPSE: will you stay or go?

with Eclipse being shoved down our collective throats in a short time, i ask all of you - what do you plan to do when you can't go back to the old layout? because every once in a while i get curious to see if Eclipse has improved at all, i turn it back on for a day, get annoyed at a broken feature/crappy design choice/unintuitive layout and flip it back off again. it's pretty clear at this point they're sticking to their guns and dumping this broken trash on all of us, and i'm running out of patience. it's already kind of a chore to post here, and eclipse doesn't really make it any easier? i just don't understand what they were going for. it'

Rottytops reinstated!

Rottytops reinstated!

I have to say I am very surprised about this turn of events. After what I believed was an unsuccessful attempt to have my original deviation of Rottytops restored, the ticket was updated and Rottytops is back! Unfortunately all the favorites on it are gone, but i don't really care. I am just happy that this ridiculous saga is over and I don't have to re-upload it for the 4th time as I was getting tired of doing it (and i'm sure you were all getting tired of seeing it). Does this mean that there's a site-wide consensus with the staff about ecchi Shantae art being allowed content on the site? Probably not... but it's good to know at least one p

DA staff makes up random bullshit, deletes my art

DA staff makes up random bullshit, deletes my art

yesterday i found this wonderful message in my inbox telling me that my Rottytops painting was deleted for depicting a character in a sexually compromising position who they claim is underage. Aside from the usual myriad of arguments that should protect this piece of art from getting deleted from a site that is mostly known for harboring the world's largest cabal of inflation fetish porn, I went to google to check and see how old Rottytops is. And aside from some rando fan wiki claiming she's 16, I couldn't find any official media giving her an age. But none of that really matters because this limp-wristed policy protects no one and harms creators. Hypothetically - let's say she was 16. Who would look at that painting and in their right mind imagine that body belonging to a minor? Do I have to put a goddamn "all characters are 18+" disclaimer on all my art now for braindead admins who think they're doing something noble and protecting children from paintings of zombies with tits?

eclipse sucks

eclipse sucks

i turned it off for the first time in a few weeks and realized how much more easy on the eyes and simpler to use the old deviantart is. not that the old deviantart is good, but eclipse is somehow worse. i dread the day that eclipse is no longer something you can turn off. it's so frustrating to do simple things and everything is so unnecessarily huge. not to mention they haven't upgraded any of the archaic uploading features. where is the option to make image galleries? crop things for preview images? simple looping html5 video? it isn't that hard to implement this stuff. every other site artists use figured it out years ago.

Anime Expo

If you're at AX this holiday weekend, come see me at table C10 in the artist alley! Once I get back i'll try to get back to posting art regularly. I'm sitting on a lot of stuff i've been too busy to properly curate for the bastion of fine art that is my gallery.

Rotty deleted again. Looking forward to another appeal being ignored.
appeal denied! but no real response, just a rejection with an automated message. as promised, i will continue to re-upload the art until i get real evidence that it violates dA policy (it doesn't)
