I'm gonna be going through my works with a fine tooth comb, so to speak, and transferring my actual works to either another site or my computer. I'll be leaving my fanart and fanfics up though. My reason for this being that I've outgrown my dA. I made this thing 5 years ago. Aside from 2010 and most of 2011 when I was moving across state lines a few times, and had no internet access, I've used this site daily. But the fact that over the last year, the only things I've posted are fanart and fanfics... I've realized that I don't really use this site like I used to. I don't use it to post my more serious works. I know part of it is apathy. Part of it is the fact that while there are those who have put a lot of work and time into their dA accounts, and have found a way to make serious revenue, and use it as the backbone of their businesses, the majority of users here are people who just want a fun place to post their fan works. And outside of dA, a lot of people look down on dA users because the site has become equated with the negative stigma of 12 year olds with badly drawn manga and crappy scanners and camera phones. While I know that these types of users are actually a smaller part of the userbase here, I've actually had people IRL hand me my business card back when they see I have the link for my portfolio (customized to NOT show any of my fan works except for an actual painting I sold) and recognize it as the one provided by dA for its users.
This has actually become an issue for me, as my real job is for a marketing company and is not reliable for a steady income. I can work my full 18 hours one week and then none at all for the next two or three weeks. My artwork has become the supplement. And with a baby to support now, too. I can't risk losing gigs simply because of a silly stigma dA has garnered not only online but apparently in the real world as well.
So.... I'll be keeping this account for the sole purpose of fanfiction and fanart posting, but my other works will be slowly removed as I sort through them (especially my photography) and either repost them elsewhere or keep them in my archives.
It's been a nice 5 years, but sadly for me, dA hasn't really been much of a help.

OMGWTF! does not constitute a solid argument in a real conversation. But it does look cool on an iPhone.


I support random conversations using pancakes, lasers, werewolves, Superwholock, and floaty balls of death in the same sentence.
