Dev.Art The Down Fall

Thu Feb 10, 2011, 5:40 AM
I'm sorry to say this but, I can atleast take confort in knowing I'm not the the first and will not be the last to say this, but DeviantArt one of the greatest Art Community sites and one of my favorite sites of all time ... is slowly losing the factors that made it a art site...

Fans of the theme not the piece
I've seen alot of amazing pieces on this site and unfortunately, seen more people get recognized with followers and favorites if they do a few anime fan pieces (aka draw the person for about a hour scan it and upload)

Free?? I must have it!!!
Another thing is that more people are using this site for just resources. With a legion of empty profile (Definition: a profile made quickly so that person can download a psd or brush set) it puts into question "How many active profiles are actually watching you?" .
Example of: I looked at my page views for some of my art ...

.CMYK
.CMYK by TheSpinxSage
has the most page views, with 5k views and 1k download

THEN
Loose as a goose a free psd I gave away
Flyer .Loose As A Goose by TheSpinxSage
has almost 15k views /almost 6k download

AND IF A ANOTHER PERSON ASK ME FOR THE PASSWORD FOR IT... I WILL REMOVE IT... READ THE COMMENT ON IT

Well I'm done for my rant for now...good night

Unfortunately, I am one of those people that did exactly that sign up for the purpose of getting free work.  There are many creative minds that create masterpieces that I appreciate and base alot of my work from. but it also gives me the inspiration to create things on my own. I apprecitate the work you and others post for free for those of us that learn from what you give freely. Thank you
