I've been part of this DA community for over 9 years now and I think my time here has come to an end. I set up an Illustration page on both Facebook and Twitter last year and I have had more responses, more feedback, spoken to and shared more good practice in those 12 months than the entire 9 years on DA.
The final nail in the coffin come from following various DA Twitter feeds. None of which respond to tweets, and all of which favour poor quality "manga" drawings and badly drawn MY Little Pony comics to the vast array of good quality diverse artwork on here.
There are so many great artists on this website that could do with a small boost to get their names out there and seem to be over looked. I see artists getting featured all of the time that don't need the publicity. That already have millions of page views and thousands of watchers. This is why I stopped paying my subscription last year. I refuse to give my art, time and finances to a community that doesn't share itself equally among its members.
Yeah, I know I sound like a moaning brat who's spat out my dummy because I didn't get "DA famous", but hey, 9 year of nothing at the cost of almost $400 vs 12 months of something at the cost of $0. I know which option I'm investing in!
