Well, let's see here...this is my first time doing a critique on here, but I've done plenty IRL, so we'll see how this goes. Let's star...


Hey all.  I bet at least one of you is wondering where the hell I disappeared to?  Well, the answer is simple: I'm leaving deviantart (kinda).  I'll get to that 'kinda' in a bit.

Here's the thing: Deviantart is awful.  For so many reasons...the biggest being that they've been stealing art and selling it to people, but there's so much more: the site design is awful and hard to navigate, there is still no official app (which in this day and age is NECESSARY), the site practically forces you to pay to get any decent features anymore...I could go on for an entire journal entry about every flaw in this horrid site, but I'll spare you.  The fact is, I'm getting a lot more traffic through my tumblr and this is no longer really necessary for me to maintain my social presence in the art community.

This actually really saddens me.  Deviantart has some absolutely fantastic artists, and if it were run better, it could have been absolutely spectacular.  But it's gone down a dark path, and I don't see it recovering anytime sadly, all those fantastic artists are kinda wasted on here.

Which brings me to my "kinda": I will not actually be deactivating my account.  Rather, I am going to, in the coming weeks, remove all my art from this site.  After that point, I'll be continuing to pop in occasionally, if only to look at others' art and maybe share on my inspiration tumblr.  I do this because I hope people will start to realize the amount of traffic they can get from Tumblr is much, much higher than Deviantart, and all you have to do is learn the tagging system--whereas here, you essentially need to constantly self-promote on the forums, and learn tagging, and learn groups.  Tumblr is a far better place for us creatives, and I strongly urge everyone to pack up and set up shop over there!

Anyways, I hope you'll consider all that.  But if not, well...I'm sorry to leave you all.  I just can't support this site's awful behavior anymore.
