As you may know, I am not very pleased with deviantArt because they basically live off the artists work but are not very nice and polite to them. I have seen this happen to myself and others. I started my own site just to get away from contributing to make the freeloader owners and admins of dA more successful a while ago. Unfortunately I signed up with a web hosting company that is very commercially minded and they want money for everything and even for basic advice, they refer their customers to paid consultants. I don't really have the time or patience to deal with that right now. As such, my site remains a bit dormant. In time, I will get to it and get int going.
In the mean time, I am going to slowly display some of my stuff on dA. Probably only new stuff and in a low key fashion. Partially because some of my friends are slightly upset that they don't have access to my art as some of them identify me with my art. Some think I have quit art. Some think I have run out of ideas. Also, sometimes I like to voice my opinions about things in a subdued manner veiled in with visual art, even though at the end, probably only I know what I am referencing to.
Finally, although dA staff are douche-bags, lol, I am not going to take it out on regular art appreciators and dA friends who enjoy browsing art. Unfortunately dA is one of the only relatively easy to use art sites out there and if there are others, I am sure they have similar agendas and mannerisms by which they treat their artists.
See you around.
