Eversince I've been on deviantART there
have been so many huge changes in the
community and the art. I thought about
enumerating some facts (own opinion tho)..
1) My first years I spent on deviantART, so a noobie on this platform,
my whole gallery content was filled with dragons, fanart, arttrades
and requests. FACT: Instead of requests, nothing changed. What is
kind of funny tho.
2) When the fandom hit me, I was pretty annoyed by Spyro and Cynder
fans, hyping this pairing, while I was sure, that only Cynder said "I love you!"
while Spyro might have friendzoned her and just saw her as a mutual companion.
FACT: I don't give a damn anymore 'bout the pairings.
3) A few years ago there were roman-like commenttexts of angry fans under
Spyro x Ember | Cynder x OC | Spyro x OC images, especially when the artists
seem to give afford to their art. FACT: Seems that the fans were out of motivation
to write huge texts to tell us, how much they estimate their opinion. Or they just
changed to a more lucrative fanbase (?)
4) When it came to art, either you had a style, that had similarity to popular artists,
having a "all-social-and-friendly"-status, a lot of luck, or a huge drama base. Then
its possible to get well known on deviantART. FACT: Hell I don't know if that's true.
But either I was with the wrong people, or just never learned how to really improve
on this website..
5) DeviantART changed. And of course it did. The pagedesign is different, just like
the people on the website itself. You have joined 2009 and now its 2018. That is a
line of 9 years. Everyone you knew, grew up, found out that reallife is more important,
got other friends, another fanbase, another life. Most of the people I know, vanished,
especially those, I was good with. Cause of huge fights, I wasn't able to rebuilt a social
line or relationship online, except with a few. My reputation isn't the best, that's a fact.
But that doesn't mean, that it changed to the worse. Since there are always new people
coming, that can show you a better side.
I don't really know, I am not that chatty, especially not after everything
that happened...guess I just want to talk with someone, who's also as long
on deviantART as me and in the mood to rant a little...
