thanks to the da staff outright admitting they dont give a shit about their users and dont care about the rampant art theft here, i'm done posting here on deviantart. im leaving.
i was anxious enough over art theft before, but da saying themselves with a lot of big fancy words they basically wont help if it does happen unless i sell my gallbladder to buy a Real Copyright License so theyre fucking required by law to take action was the final straw. moderators on a goddamn art site
shouldnt have to be required by law
to take action on art theft of their users' content before they actually will.
im not sticking around any longer. im not interested in being present on a literal hub for art thieves. im desperate for feedback on my art but here its not worth the risk.
ive been extremely discouraged with my art lately, so much i havent been drawing much at all and have fully finished next to nothing, but i do have other places i post my art when i do.
i'm on tumblr
, i have a personal blog and an art blog.personal: kotohonoumis.tumblr.com/art: goatpencil.tumblr.com/ive password locked my art blog
because of how shitty ive been feeling about art lately so you cant get into it at the moment (this also means that my commissions are closed indefinitely) but there's the url so you have the link in case i decide to reactivate it down the road. ive stopped posting my serious finished art like paintings and such on tumblr entirely, but i post wips and glitch edits on my personal.
i have a twitter
, which is mostly personal shit/retweets but i do post my art on it.twitter.com/kotohonoumis
i have a furaffinity
which i check often but post very little on because i dont draw furries much, but im working on a project that may change that soon.www.furaffinity.net/user/madoh…
i have a pixiv
which i also post very little on, and i check it infrequently but it's there. i only post anime on it so it's mostly love live art.www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=91…
i have a facebook
which ive started to use again after a year of inactivity. i dont give it out publicly, but if you want it, note me here (or message me on tumblr/twitter if you want a quicker response) and tell me you want it. i dont post often, when i do its usually personal stuff but all my art will go there too. i only give it to people i know, if youre a random watcher i havent spoken to once in my life sorry but dont waste your time because i wont give it to you.
all my submissions are going in storage so no one can sneak in and steal my shit while im inactive and not looking. i'll keep checking messages here and favoriting things occasionally but im done posting here for good. im not gonna keep risking having my art stolen by ignorant cocky 9 year old weeaboos and then not even being able to do anything about it because the staff are lazy neglectful shitbags. the single comment and 3 to 5 favorites i get per art piece arent worth the paranoia worry and stress, sorry.
