YOYO my rad followers, I have some good news!

There's a new art COMMUNITY SITE in development!




As a lot of you know, the new Eclipse 'update' has been striking some negative chords with the vast majority of deviantART. It's mobile-centric, looks pretty bad (and way less user friendly), and removes ALL customization across all profiles. Not a good update, that's for sure. There's a lot more I could say about it, but that'd get a bit repetitive and you guys already know where I stand on it.

BUT!

If you were planning on leaving dA (or using it less), like a lot of us were, but couldn't find somewhere to turn to outside of Toyhouse, Twitter, or other popular sites, look no further!

Artrise is currently in development, made by--and for--artists!

Go check out the journal above, and join the linked discord server if you'd like to see progress, suggest website usability ideas, or just be a part of this cool new creation!  <3 <3

YAY! I really hope that thing to be. After that goddamned Eclipse I really think about leaving Deviantart (or just nearly abandoning it and not use but not completely leave) and I'm not happy about it. It's only site I use and find something similar can be difficult (what those gods of DA think about when they try to force Eclipse on people?!). I think Artrise can become new home for likes of me. But I can't help with anything sadly...

I'm so happy to see someone is doing this, the thought crossed my mind last week but due to lack of funds (and technology savvy - I could crash Google search engine xD) not the best person for the job.  We don't know what Eclipse is going to be like 100% when it rolls out, I don't trust the "we listen to your feedback" because when have they in the past?  It's good to have a back-up just in case. :)

Thanks for the notice, Voidspacer!

Lol, I don't trust their "we listen to your feedback" too. It's just a bait from DA to brainwashed us.

Tbh, unless the eclipse update makes the website near impossible to use, I don’t see a reason to leave all the watchers I have now behind to move to a different website where there will be another slow build up of followers (for smaller artists, anyways)

I personally won't be leaving per se, but I won't be using the site as much (big following is definitely a factor). There are a lot of others who will be leaving, though.

I mean, a lot of people said the same thing when CORE came around, but not that many people ended up leaving (to my knowledge)

I've heard that they're actually taking and answering feedback this time around, so I don't see a need to jump ship just yet

This is usually a problem with DA, they say they do and they do but not massively.
You only have to look back at past things to see where it leads.

I barely get my hopes up these days as hope has been killed pretty quickly.
YouTube is the perfect example of this.


So it's good to have a backup option if all else fails (again)

I am aware, and I've seen the feedback given. Unfortunately, I still don't have much hope; I'll see where it goes, but I'd rather have a good backup option first. >< I won't be jumping ship until Eclipse is definitely confirmed to be bad post-launch. (Even then, I'll be on here still.)

No, I won't be leaving--but I'll probably be less active.

OH yes I did gfdhkg--sorry I've been super busy lately DX And I actually am still workin on trademarking, but having a solid amount of info + posting it online immediately copyrights it. If it's posted online with a timestamp with your name on it, it belongs to you--as does the content related to it

that's why I put my name and copyright statement on everything X'D

Really that's it?? I thought you had to go and buy the copyright somehow. I was thinking something like this:
info.legalzoom.com/cartoon-cha…

That's an extra measure. "Although copyright protection automatically exists for a cartoon character depicted in a tangible form" means that if you post it with copyright symbol and name, it belongs to you, under your copyright. It's definitely something I plan on doing, however, because it's so frustrating seeing people mimic/copy my characters. 9_9

don't have the money though ghgfjkhgjf
