Recently some people I +watch leave dA or taking a break. I do understand them since I was in the same boat for years. Going hermit mode is nice and useful sometimes. You'll reconnect with your inner self, find your goals, got an enlightment and so on. But the thing is you guys just didn't realize how much the community benefits you when you share your passion.

I put my best effort into each piece and enjoy the feedback no matter the scope. Even if there are just a few comments, someone will say something that makes me nod and smile. Sometimes it turns into nice conversation or rave chat. I love it. And I won't be able to experience it if I'm out.

The community around you is your reflection actually. If you share joy, happiness and excitement in your works, boy you'll be amazed how wonderful the community is. Think of chain reaction - you spread a small impulse that turns into a massive wave.

The choice is always up to you, just keep in mind that you're not alone. Don't retain your passion for yourself only, share it!
  • Mood: Joy

My favourite quote is "draw and paint as much as you can". I stay sane when I paint, if I'm just looking around my mind will quickly pick up the waste that would be hard to clean up.

Yes, but a lot of people who are leaving (that I watch) are doing it because of that gender policy screw-up dA made... which I commend them for sticking to their principles. Besides, they're simply relocating to new communities, so I don't think they'll be missing out on that feel or feedback.

yeah.. i had 2 great deviant friend, who left da for "to concentrate on art, not community" :( but i really miss 'em
and some great "celebrity" artist made that move too :(
even if i can't make art, or unable to di it for some reason, i stay here, and "maintain" my community life, cause they will behave as friendly as you behave :) and that's a nice thing :aww:

Да. Верно. Но на фоне твоего жизнеутверждающего поста, как-то подразумевал опыт или творчество :) Мне, например, ну очень не нравится когда кто-то на девиантарте начинает холивар против арт пиратов. Тысячу раз обновляя новость в журнале, описывая как ему удалось прижать очередного вора к стенке. Ничего кроме негатива и скуки они не вызывают. С одной стороны можно понять автора, но с другой позитива это всё не несёт.

Я даже и не знал, что про такое тут пишут. Как-то пару раз встречались разборки (среди дам!) на тему кто у кого срисовывает, ууу... это такая бодяга... ну а в остальном не встречал подобного. В идеале автор должен заряжать зрителей позитивом, чтоб народ стоял на ушах (в хорошем смысле). Мне несколько раз удавалось такое сделать, ощущения совершенно фантастические получаешь.

Приятно такое читать =) Комунити действительно помогает. Мне вот в силу разных причин в реальной жизни просто не с кем поговорить о наболевшем, поделиться артом, показать рисунок нового робота или еще что-то. Это дико угнетает. Но когда выходишь сюда, или в 4 утра садишься за комп и смотришь арт, читаешь комментарии, рисуешь, то весь день потом как будто праздник. И наоборот, без арт комунити чувствуешь себя в какой-то стоячей воде. Желаю тебе почаще делиться с нами своими рисунками и мыслями =)

I would agree with all that is it wasnt for the trolls that love nothing more than to bring you and your work down in any way they can. No matter how good a piece is, Theres always a few that will drag it into the mud for pure fun.

"If you share joy, happiness and excitement in your works, boy you'll be amazed how wonderful the community is."
That is the point, when you cannot share this in your work , getting no feedback all of a sudden is even worse.
Otherwise I totally join that oppinion ! I think I will listen to gas station some 1000times more and then hopefully will contribute good vibes again ;)

Your words a so true and inspirational....In the past, I had my time in college and acheived my major in entertaiment of arts animation...but did not pursue my goal as I should have. I started my art again as soon as I found Deviant Art because of a friend. I then started using photoshop and I was so bad using it...but after time I'm getting the hang of it..I didn't even know about layers and I used a mouse. LOL.... I was so down because I couldn't show my work to the community but now I can show my work to the world. Now I'm a DA addict.....Your meaningful words made my night... Thank You.

Good point there.

I think a lot of the reason why artists go into hermit mode is to temporarily shut down any influences they might be receiving from the internet. Despite all the awesome artists on here, it can get stagnant pretty easily. And it's REALLY tempting to just sit there and ogle new arts instead of seriously practicing.

Suppose if you do it the way you said to - that negates the negative part. : >
