The Eclipse is coming. Eep

Just a quickie this time. For anyone who's curious, I am still going to attempt to stick around DA after Eclipse launches, mostly just cuz it's the easiest place still for me to post art in general (at least that's the hope). But for anyone who's leaving, but still want to follow Hybridor, you can find it at the following locations! (open these links into a new tab for them to work ><)

Hybridor website:

Hybridor will go to ComicFury as well later down the line when it's new beginning is finished, which is still be sneak-previewed on Hybridor's Patreon for 2 bucks a month (

Out of the three, the official website is the best DA-like location as the pages there are in the same format as what I put up on DA. It's like a DA group, but better because it has a forum and user submit-able fanart gallery and other tidbits!

In the meantime, we'll see what Eclipse does to DA. But it's sure looking like another SmackJeeves fail...I didn't like it last time I tried it, and it doesn't sound like anything changed since =(

If people are moving, where will everyone be going? Only place I can think of is Instagram,'s such a PAIN to submit anything there since I make computer art and not phone-sized images >_< Comment where you will be heading, if at all, down below. For science!

Special Event: Early Prologue SneakPeaks

Wanna see what the new Prologue pages to Hybridor will be like? You can see them now if you join the 2$ tier of Hybridor's Patreon! It also comes with other side goodies too! Just a win for everyone right?

To be quite honest I would much prefer if DA had stuck to their old UI, not only did I find the switchover to be awfully jarring but also very user-unfriendly.

There is still far too much of "where has this button gone" and "what happened to that function" going on.

Ulta's avatar

Meh. I've gotten used to it. It's not that hard to discover where stuff after I explored a bit. Though DA IS moving things around STILL (the groups button shifted twice so far), so that's a bit annoying.

Other than submitting things to groups right from the deviations page still being bugged and the dumb banners at the top of ones page not of good quality OR sizing right, it's been fine so far to me.

Sadly I don't have any site to suggest other then pixiv. ;v ;
pixiv suffers from a language gap and could possibly end up somewhat confusing or hard to figure out to some people. I'm antisocial and personally find it easy enough.
there's also newgrounds, but I haven't really tested it out much at all past posting 1 thing.
I doubt I'd really leave, this was my dream to join and first place to join. Eclipse just feels like a cluttered mess and an empty shell sprinkled with glitter, echoing with anguish as I fall once again into the drama zone.

What an eloquent way of saying such XD

I've been dabbling in the drama zone to cope through these dark times, for fun but still convey a message. X3

It doesn't make much difference to me as I pop in and out of dA anyway just to look at stuff... but it is a shame how user-unfriendly eclipse feels. I mainly hang around Tapastic (so I usually catch you there!) for my comics and Twitter for everything else. First I've heard of ComicFury, I'd be interested to check it out when you set up there.
Ulta's avatar
ComicFury seems nice enough. And it has a decent userbase from what I heard, so may as well!

It'll still be months before it gets there though. Gotta get through the 26 pages of the new prologue and I only am at page 5 XD

Staying mostly on furaffinity. You could try, inkbunny, furrynetwork, and even twitter is fairly stable for furries/anthros.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Been using Eclipse now for several months and I've gotten used to it, though definitely not using their phone app as thats a giant pain to navigate and such. But good to hear you are still posting up on here as opposed to some who threaten to leave all together.

Ulta's avatar
I won't leave unless it's just gross and a pain to deal with. I'm not one to threaten ><

From the title, I thought there was gonna be a lunar eclipse soon that I hadn't heard about :/

I've been using Eclipse for a while now. I think it's decent for people who don't have Core, but I've also not been super art-active, so I maybe haven't had a chance to notice all the problems with it other people have.

For fandom stuff, I've been using Tumblr a lot recently. I know for professional stuff, I've seen others use ArtStation, but that doesn't have the same casual vibe / creator interaction (?) that DA, Tumblr, etc have

Ulta's avatar
Both Tumblr and ArtStation don't really feel right to me...neither have the audience or the layout I ike. Oh well...

I'll be figuring out Eclipse the hard way lol.
DraconicSonic's avatar

That's fair enough. Every website has a different vibe and audience and I honestly can't think of one that hits the same points as DA :/

Ulta's avatar

I don't see Eclipse as that big of a deal, this is my new account, and so far it doesn't bother me much. I do have a tumblr though.

Ulta's avatar
I will be finding out the hard way if I'll like it or not. I doubt I will like it more than how it is now though, which is gonna suck.

Good to see you’ll stay :)

Ulta's avatar
Might as well see how it works and if it's worth sticking around for.

I couldn’t agree more:D
