so I gave another shot to DA, worked on new illustration, commented, favorited others, and there's less traffic. YIKES! The problem is you do need more active user base to go in and interact with the community. That's what it was like 15 years ago on this site. I never claimed I ever get a lot of views for my posts, but I'd at least generate 30 to 60 favorites. I still use use this site, but it's concerning how badly things have gotten in 2 months.

I've been a member of DA under another account since 2004. And I've seen it's ups and downs, but I would like to take a minute out and just reflect on the social media platforms. Before 2004, the art community was made off of message boards. They were an insight into the industry but even with moderation they lacked meta-tags in order to have decent search functions. So your contribution would be lost in the either. When I came into DA, I would invite my art school friends over, and then I would gain more friends. Friends that would help me and even now we are still close. As I look back at my art, I'm surprised at how much I have grown. Originally I had a comic book influence, then it shifted into stylized cartoon, and now it's more realistic renders. Not having fears, and sharing with others helped new artists learn to try new things. Submitting older art would encourage others, so then I would submit tutorials at first I didn't imagine I contributing to the art community but this
