Recently I commented on depingo's poll and that even lead us to a small conversation. To sum it up, it seems that many people (myself included) doesn't use basic DA features like frontpage populars, undiscovered art and many others. And to my opinion the problem isn't about screwed layout or poor usability... it's the content itself and the community change.

First, we don't see new things. We see trends that people either successfully or unsuccessfully trying to follow. I'm not saying that's bad or something, it just means you have no new experience. Of course it highly depends on your personal mileage - if you just starting out there would be a lot to learn and see. But if you're painting for years you'd be slightly bored.

And second, the community isn't the same as it was 5 or 10 years ago. Too many options for a short amount of time. Instead of genuine feedback and communications we have likes, faves, +1's and other substitutes. When I leave a comment I don't expect you reply. You just have no time as you spread across countless social networks constantly trying to balance all events in your personal and professional life. And if you reply besides standard 'thanks' it looks like a miracle. Then some of you realize others making money with their works. So instead of chasing creativity and striving for perfection you focus on a business side first. Sure, we all have bills to pay, but do you really need money to draw what you really want to draw (hello Patreon)? You see... all these things slowly shifting your mindset either as a viewer or as creator.

And because of that I don't have an urge and excitement to explore all these features. After all it's just a place to put some stuff and answer occasional questions ('no, I don't do private commissions' and 'yes, you can use this artwork as long as it's non-commercial').
Wargs Den by agnidevi

Illustration from The Wastes of Eriador Adventure Pack for LoTR TCG.

I was already booked with character art so I picked environment pieces for this LoTR expansion pack. Most of these are dark moody landscapes and the Warg's Den is an example of it.

The Warcraft movie is still one year ahead but you can already get a bird's eye view on Azeroth's city of Stormwin:



And if you're under Firefox you'll get this nice message: 360° video playback is not supported on this browser which is actually untrue.
Final Fantasy Shiva by agnidevi
Final Fantasy Shiva
Shiva from Mobius Final Fantasy a mobile RPG recently released in Japan.

Typically artists complain how they're constrained while working on established series yet Square opted for full carte blanche here. They basically said we need Shiva for that new final fantasy game and we'd like to see what you'd come up with.

You can get more info on MOBIUS FF via official website: www.jp.square-enix.com/MOBIUSF…

Here's a note to my russian readers regarding Astra Black comic.

Стараниями участников ВК сообщества digital_gallery комикс Astra Black теперь доступен на русском языке. Это довольно неожиданно, что моя работа заинтересовала соотечественников. Я понимаю когда фанаты переводят комиксы Marvel или популярную мангу вроде Fairy Tail или One Piece, но браться за никому не известный комикс... спасибо!

Update: Как оказалось хитрый девиант блокирует любые ссылки на вконтакт, поэтому до вышеупомянутого паблика добирайтесь на перекладных.

I don't suppose Fantasy Flight Games has asked you to do artwork for the Dauntless-class Battlecruiser, the Liberator-class Cruiser, or any of the New Class Modernization Program capital ships (aka Warrior-class Gunship, Majestic-class Heavy Cruiser, Defender-class Assault Carrier, Nebula-class Star Destroyer, and Endurance-class Fleet Carrier)?

I rarely do private commissions since my schedule is almost always booked by freelance gigs.

Thank you Richard! While I don't think I stand out on DA (just look at my stats) I'm grateful that you find my art exciting. And don't forget there are always better artists and stunning people. Don't limit yourself to one or two artists only - keep a broad view as it helps you to grow by leaps and bounds.

And regarding commissions, my schedule is usually booked by freelance gigs so I very rarely accept private ones. But thank you for your interest anyway!
