I want to throw all my art on a pile and set in on fire and delete everything and act like nothing ever happened. Pick up my bass guitar start a new band and play for a crate of beer. :|

But I probably keep creating new stuff...

Sorry I'm not very active on DA anymore. Thanks for all the favs and all! :hug:

I always hoped to get a DD for my pencil work but after seeing crap getting a DD for a long time I don't care much. But I'm really happy some great artists I do watch got a DD so that kind of compensate it I guess. I hope more artists I admire on DA get a DD instead of all the *&*$%(#Q%$(#Q$% but it's probably a matter of taste?

Keep on truckin' dude. Love your work. The only burning of your art work should be indelibly to the back of your viewers eyelids.

Late comment, but anyway... I used to think like that about DDs. It just seems like the community doesn't have much interest in genuinely artistic stuff. What I mean by that is that most of the popular stuff is anime/manga, ponies & wolves, digital stuff that always looks the same, and if by some wonder there's something traditional, it's a pencil portrait or something really cute. There's no eyeroll emoticon sarcastic enough to convey just how big of a joke it all is. I do of course appreciate the skill it takes to draw hyper realistic works, but really it's mostly only replicating what you see... therefore it's really boring to me 99% of the time. Of course there are exceptions, but overall it's all so predictable and old. I just recently returned from a break of over six months. If you ignore the popular stuff, there's still so many good artists here, it's worth it to stay. 

For what it's worth I think both your drawings and mine are easily worth a DD. It's lost most of it's value in my eyes for reasons stated above, but I'd still like some more exposure :D

NP I have a late reply to fit it completely. :P

That's completely true and that's what I always see passing by...Yes and it's also called "Deviant" Art but what's so deviant about most of the art? I don't expect a lot of art to be deviant but what is mainly featured is far from it. Maybe it's just like all those music award shows where popular brainless consumption music gets rewarded for being uhm the best.

Yeah I often look at favorite folders from artists I like. I think that all the treasure is there to find. :)

Haha yes I completely know what you mean :) Well I had a DD years ago… but I think it didn't deserve it (and hoped it would give me some exposure on my pencil work) but seeing all the popular stuff I know why it got one. :D

I know what you mean, but the little creative monster inside will never let you stop, and that's good. Never deprive the world of your wonderful work!
DD are a mystery to me, but you do deserve one!

Haha yes the monster keeps going on!

Thank you very much! :D

If anyone ever deserved a DD, it was you.  But in the overall scheme, what does it matter?  I see people with no talent getting them, and people with little talent getting them over and over.  DD's are a popularity contest.  It depends on who knows who and who tells who.  

Rest easy in knowing that those of us who DO see your work know the amazing quality and the artistic ability of the one drawing it.  Keep US happy.  lol  Share your wonderful work with us, although I know it gets frustrating at times.  

Personally, I adore your work, and you.  For what that's worth...

That's so kind of you! :hug: Well it's like creating a lot of art and getting nowhere or sell anything. If you play in a band and everyone says it's good but never buy an album or go to the gigs it can work the opposite way. Partly my own fault because I like to create not to annoy people with begging to buy something. Not really about the money but I like when someone wants to hang my art and respect it by paying something for the effort.

I will try to keep you all happy! I probably do less art and learn something else or something which can generate some income or more changes for a job.

Thanks! You adore me? That's worth a lot :D
