Hey guys, my apologies for not journaling much. Hope everyone had an awesome new year and christmas/whatever you celebrate! I sure as hell did, thanks to some things coming through ^^ I'm now fully registered disabled and an actual graphic designer now!
But...I have a bit of an announcement to make.
I'm pulling all my artworks off dA. I don't update here much any more, and I use it to basically snoop pretty pictures and references. I've been on dA now for...gods, years, honestly, in one form or another. To sound hipsterish, I was on dA before it exploded into the monster it is now.
I call it a monster because that's what it is. Did you know dA officially owns every piece of artwork on this site - and as such, can sell it to third-party companies? And they will do nothing about art theft? I've been thinking about this and other things, and really, I don't want to be a part of a site like this. Somewhere along the way, dA's stopped being a site for the betterment of art and started being a moneymaker, and while I agree that it's a business and therefore it comes with the territory, I don't agree with some of the practices.
So I'm removing my art - not putting it into storage, taking it off fully as I do not want any part of my art used by dA. Sometimes, you have to realise what you stand for and actually do it.
I'll be keeping my account active, mostly to look at pretties, but there won't be any more art on here. If you want my art (and you do, it's getting awesome I swear
) you can find it here
Thanks for the memories, dA.
