No I'm not leaving Deviant Art, I don't see reason to because I shrugged off the community a long, long time ago when I felt it was starting to turn bad. But doesn't it seem like a lot of great artists are on hiatuses or leaving or thinking of leaving all at the same time? I'm not going to name names, but I think I read three journals from just the last few days about and this is the last step before we descend into a maddening spiral of horrible trolling where that's all that's left.
The site needs to step in, shape up its game before we lose some great people.
I've given up on my drawing at this point, I consider doing it occasionally but I just wasn't good at it ever and I didn't see the point in wasting time trying to be something I wasn't. I really am working to get better and to get to be someone who can actually get published and make it out there, so I'm looking for connections and I think I will have to go much deeper to find them
