Is it just me, or

Has dA become a totally entirely different  thing than what it was?

Seems like the normal crowd that used to follow me has either moved on to something else, or dissipated altogether. It might be that I haven't really done anything SF related in a while and just Momo stuff for almost 2 years.

If there is a site I should be on, which should it be?

I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

I like looking/reading you stuff.

I just rarely say anything anymore. But I still enjoy looking at your work. If you find a good spot to migrate to, let us know?

I started watching you because of the SF fanart but what kept me around is that I absolutely love your style of painting and characters poses. Then once you started doing real life paintings, serveral cars and focused on 5C I became even more blown away. You're still one of my top 3 favorite artist I admire and I'll follow you no matter where you post your art. I'd like to stay here and expand your art elsewhere.

dA is constantly changing, it never stays the same and always caters to whatever's popular, which is usually fanart. I'm not really sure about the people following you, but you're pretty spot on if you believe that some people have stopped watching you because you haven't done as much fan based work as opposed to your own, as those kinds of pictures tend to draw in bigger crowds. At the end of the day though, it's a good way to weed out the casual fans and have a more grounded, loyal fanbase that's there for your art and your talent, as opposed to specific content you produce.


I mean, don't get me wrong, people are free to enjoy whatever art they're here for, but I personally prefer following artists who produce more original works than fanart.

I feel like dA's a different place indeed. The stacking of images has removed some of the incentive to actually view them. So I've intended to read your comic every time I see the journal, but I keep postponing it. I only get to view a few images at the time before I move on to other stuffs.
Always loved your work though.

If I had to guess I'd say part of it was you telling everyone you were leaving dA a while back to exclusively use Facebook. Then when you returned to put up a bunch of 5th cap stuff you made it so people can't comment on it. Probably at very least doesn't encourage the same kind of rally of support you had in your dA Prime.

I've never noticed a change... actually I have. I've gotten a bit of a better response lately; Of course, I'm just small-time so anybody bothering to look at my stuff is a bonus to me.

Most people I know are just sick of the internet.
