DeviantArt Sucks.

Hi everyone.

After much deliberation (and before my excellent feast of 12 steak and cheese taquitos), I've decided that DeviantArt, as faithful as I've been to it for all these years, completely stinks. The only things that people really favorite these days are my Ender's Game illustrations. Of course,it's nice to know that
something gets views every once in a while, but it's about time I took favorites and pageviews out of the equation and made an art blog like the rest of my stupid friends.

Here's a little something that I did for my Illustration I class.


I'm actually kind of proud of this one. Our assignment was to illustrate our greatest fear or worst habit. I didn't want to get too personal, so I went with my general fear of making bad first impressions and bombing horribly when I joke around with people. Here I am in a freshly emptied comedy club, soaking in the putrid juices of my sense of humor.

After hours and hours of work on this sonnofabitch last night, my Illustration teacher got a lovely case of food poisoning and didn't show up. As much as I enjoyed getting an extra three hours of sleep this morning, I wish Professor Albright didn't have to spend all morning in the bathroom. I was looking forward to the critique.

Alright, that's all for the moment. I'll probably get all retro soon and post stuff from ye olden days... and by that I mean from a few weeks back. Until then, I can only leave my hundreds of readers salivating for more.

Maxburg out.

Deviantart does suck. They are nothing more than a printing company reaping millions from parents pocketbooks. Just look at the average age range of most of the members. I'd try www.myartspace.com or www.artwanted.com if I were you. I left Deviantart recently due to the fact that their staff members are petty. For example, this guy was given the Deviantart group on Myspace and he decided to turn it into a different type of art group. A new group mod can do anything he or she wants with a group regardless of how the old mod feels, right? So what does DA staff do? They track him down and send him messages about how he is low and a crook. Nevermind the fact that DA screwed Jark and nevermind the fact that the group had been changed for months before any of them noticed it. They are greedy and are upset because they no longer have the ads on the group that they once had. They must feel threatened by the art site the new mod has linked on the group? DA started out cool, but now all they seem to care about is how man thousands of 'artists' join each day so that they can sell ad space on the site for millions per year. Kinda hard to sell yourself as an underground type art place when they seem only concerned with major bucks and the latest deal. Deviantart, the Hot Top of the online art world. HA!

XD Very nice. Would have been funnier if various chairs had been upended in the audiences' haste to leave.

Yours truly,

I'm not going to post a long rant about deviantart, but I will say that they sometimes come down harsh on people who link to other art sites on their forums. I also don't like the fact that you can't totally delete your deviantart account.

Deviantart is:

infested with attention whores
infested with Japanophiles
(It's a growing list..)
they would not appreciate you if you're not one of them~~wai~desu~desu..fck.
ads are damn annoying.
the subscription thing is plain useless. you're just paying for a script and what? something to brag about with a different symbol?

I have to admit, deviantart turned to shit, somewhere after 2003. It was a great site when it started, I joined in late 2000, it was a place where people knew each other and got along quite well, until the site started to grow more with new members, Jarkoff and his cronies started being pricks and favoritism took effect. Then comes along Angelo and ousts Matteo, then the take over/Coup d'├ętat whatever you wanna call it. Jark was out and running in circles crying for attention, revolt, chaos, uproar, you name it, the little bandwagon trolls in support for Jark started of their protest of a Yellow Day, which was forgotten the year after. Angelo, a deceitful little prick started capitalizing from everyone's art. It's true about deviantart being a printing company, and hosts peoples arts so their pages generate money from ads, but it doesn't protect the artists from theft. The moderators are assholes, the admins are morons, the political forum is full of jack asses and the site is swarming with amateurs. The site has less art and more manga/furry/anime/cosplay bullshit.
