I used to think DA was a great way to reach more people and have great conversations about art, but instead it's just the opposite. Ignorant comments, people demanding free art, art theft... all this seems to be running rampant on DA now. As a working professional, it's increasingly distressing to see so much art being re-used, altered and edited without any sort of moderation from the site's own staff.
I will stick around until I find a few awesome people to take over the Quarians group and then I will be stepping back away from DA for a long time, maybe even just get rid of this account in the future.
I will be removing comments from all my work, removing several art pieces, unwatching everyone, (no hard feelings) and will not be replying to notes (Because I will not see them anyways )
Its been a fun ride kids, but after 9 years I am just done with this site.
I am active on these sites.
