Does anyone here know what happened to the wildlife artist Melissa Acker? Also known by her usernames MissyAcker and Demagis?

She was a HUGE inspiration to me . . . but her account has been deactivated, all her websites are gone, she's literally dropped off the face of the earth.  Did she explain anything before deleting her account?  I'm just worried about her, and I hope there's somewhere on the internet where I can still find her art.

May i ask why my drawing (cheetah) was rejected? Wrong Folder or wrong picture? 😔
Bandarai Featured By Owner May 24, 2018

If you are referring to this image: cheetah 2

The drawing itself is beautiful! However, as per our rules, we required images to be neatly cropped/displayed. There is a rough (note/sketchbook?) like border on the left side of the image, and a bit of space on the top right. If the image was cropped, we would gladly accept it into the group! :D

(If you are not referring to the aforementioned picture, please let us know! Thanks!)

Thank you very much for your answer! I had a feeling that might be the reason 😉. I will try again 😎

Out of curiosity why don't you allow creations of animals which are extinct?
Bandarai Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2018
With the number of submissions we had of prehistoric animals, we were quickly becoming an 'extinct animals' group, rather than our main original focus on our current wildlife. :lol:

I'll rephrase that in our rules to make it more clear. :D
artimis23 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's ok I was largely just curious as to whether u were on about prehistoric as you said or whether that included more recent additions to the list such as those species that have died out in the last 20 years or so

Hello I can't see a join group link anywhere on the page. I have been having this problem a lot recently. Maybe it is because I view Deviant Art on a tablet? I don't know. Can you send me a join invite please?
