I've been pretty much inactive on dA (in the case of posting) since July last year and at the moment I don't plan on coming back.
I still come on pretty much every day, and go through messages, but I've had no motivation to actually create things.
Coming up with ideas and making them work for journals isn't easy, and though I have been open for requests before, I've had some pretty rude and inconsiderate messages asking me to create journals. I've never taken payment or asked for anything in return for creating journals for other people, and yet, not even getting a please or a small amount of respect when being asked to make them? No thank you. Let alone some of the responses I've got when I've kindly said that I'm not open for requests!
I've had a journal on my front page ever since I stopped taking requests saying that I wasn't open, and yet I still got messages demanding
journals. Now, I'm not just going to talk about the bad, because I have some incredibly understand and civil messages regarding Journals, which I thank you all for!
So basically the point of this journal is to say, that right now, I'm done.
I had a nice time on dA at the beginning, but as time went on I've found it more hostile and an unfriendly place to socialise/talk to people on. I'm fed up of inconsiderate and rude comments, and being made to feel bad when I've said no.
I'm still going to check my messages and look at art on here, but I won't be posting any time in the near future.
I may use my art account for posting personal art [link]
, and i'm active on tumblr [link]
all the time, if anyone wanted to be in contact.
Thank you to all the lovely and considerate people on here
