Long time no see (again)!
I wonder how have you been. This community is so different from what it used to be when I joined dA! A lot has changed since the time I used to be active around here. Lots of layout changes were made and numerous new features were created, but for me, the major difference is the lack of feedback on any work, good or bad.
This community used to be very interactive, giving constructive feedback and motivation, by commenting or adding to favourites. But the truth is, it's not just this community that has changed. Internet and the way we use it has changed a lot. Social Media has changed the way we share, and exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks that depend on mobile and web-based technologies. Nowdays we have lots of other platforms to share our work and exchange feedback.
That being said, I consider deviantART used to be one of the top-quality websites for sharing art, but many great artists stopped visiting the website, since we have so many other choices and different and attractive features at other websites. But this is still a good website and I missed it. I have been sharing online what I do professionally but I miss sharing more of my personal work and dA is the perfect place for that, the place where I feel more comfortable to share other kinds of work.
That's why I'm coming back. I'm here just for the sake of sharing something that might inspire others and that I'm proud of, and to search for visual inspiration looking at good pictures.
If you're still reading this, can you please leave some thoughts? I would love to hear from people who didn't left dA for months or years. How has been this experience for you? What have you been doing? Are you into traditional art? Digital Art? Photography, illustration? Other?
I'm hoping I'll be active around here. I want to interact with creative people!
My gallery is now pretty empty, since I deleted my works some time ago, but I will definitely make it grow!
For now you'll find a picture from a beauty shoot I did a while ago:
See you soon!
