I have decided that dA is not getting another single cent from me. They've turned into greedy bastards who exploit users, and we have nothing to show for our money except an ever so slightly more pleasant browsing experience. The site is still filled up with porn, screenshots and godawful cellphone selfies. Trying to get constructive feedback or intelligent interaction on here is like pulling teeth. So I am totally 100% through with giving dA any money whatsoever. From now on you'll have to make do with free/no journal skins from me. And that's fine. I'm kind of giving up on dA as a gallery really. It's gone down the shitter a bit. I'm on here for the users whom I have befriended over the years, and the groups I admin. No other reason anymore. dA can go suffocate itself in its millions.
Update: Oh yes, in my annoyance, I'd completely forgotten to link to the places I prefer to post art and things these days. I'm most active on my tumblr account, which you can find here: dwuff.tumblr.com/
and on my official Facebook page, which you can find here: www.facebook.com/danelle.malan…
The Tumblr has a lot more silliness and fun, all my doodles and WIPs, and some writing/life advice/articles, and a lot of (quality) reblogs. The Facebook page has more of my professional things on it, like fine art/paintings and client work. I also use the Facebook page to announce things like exhibitions and talks. And of course, there is always the Cottonstar blog, which you can find here: cotton-star.com/blog/
Thank you, I hope to see you at my new haunts. :3
