Although you may see me logged on here and there, from time to time.... and then and now...
Deviantart is dead.
My favorite of artists are still on here and I WILL continue to post if I feel like I want to share it with the community.
But my impression and respect for this website has died. Day by day, the front page, which supposedly is the some of the best or "favorites" qualities of work, has turned to shit. I can no longer appreciate what stupid 14 year olds and newbieartowl-esque individuals, whether they be otaku or the ones trying to turn dA into the new MySpace, and what they chose as their bullshitted, half-heartened favorites. Nor the drama llama wrecked individuals who relies on the affection and comfort of online personas and kiss-ass followers whom they barely know without the use of a keyboard to give them self-esteem about their work or worse yet, themselves.
Here is a blog that best describes my problems with the new deviantart community today: fyeahartnewbieowl.tumblr.com/
I'm sick of low-quality popular anime fandom artwork that gets 1,000,000+ favs because, Favoriting = "I sort of like it"
I'm sick of nudity photographs, and not because I don't appreciate the beautify of the human body, but because I don't appreciate woman who expose themselves for a little extra attention, with their myspace-whore-angle shots cellphone camera of them posing in the bathroom with the flash on.
I'm sick of people who think "good enough" art is still considered "good" art.
I'm sick of seeing real art and artists being under appreciated here at deviantart, but the one artists who draws the anime chibis gets known.
Too much shit is being pulled out of asses and having gold stars slapped onto them because individuals, who hide under the alias of "artist", in this community don't know what they like or why they like something.
I don't want shit.
I want the old Deviantart back.
