Moonrise by linnsetane Moonrise by linnsetane
I think I might abandon this place soon. dA has been fairly boring for ages now, and there's just not enough reason to stick around anymore. For more updates, find me on facebook: Linn Setane Art, or Instagram: linnsetane for even more frequent posting of drawings, WIPs and the occasional randomness.

Aw, not even instagram!? Damnit, you're impossible ;P
I've still got a few months left with premium, so I'll probably stick around for a while!

Hmmm, okay... hope you're around then for the next few months. :)

DA can only be boring if you are not active enough. People often work here as to ''You look at my drawings, I look at yours'' Ergo, that's why there's the favorite system.

There is no way in hell that i would get so many watchers and views if I wasn't active at least one hour a day here. I spread my works to forums and to links with other people. Always talking/commenting with people and looking for artists in the dark corners of DA to find new people and art. That's how I found you in the first place.

I would suggest staying here then on Facebook. Instagram, do not know what that is.
But after one year of being here I really have to say pushing my art to be seen through this site is the best thing there is.

Now, onto the drawing.. I still can't quite grasp on how you do that gentle,fluidic shading with the pencil. I really love the way you draw. Just look at that moon. Beautiful!

That's pretty much the problem - I don't spend enough time here. There's just too much uninteresting crap to dig through to find new artists, and it's too time-consuming. And since I'm here so rarely, there's a ton of new works by the people I watch, and looking through it all becomes tedious work rather than fun and inspiring. It's a vicious circle. ;P
 
Instagram has become my main source of inspiration lately, I love how easy it is to connect with other artist and find what you're interested in. And the best part, since it's pretty much just a phone app, I can spend some time on it whenever/wherever, while dA isn't really phone-compatible. Plus, it's connected to my fb page, so whenever I post something on instagram I can make it pop up on fb as well. You should give it a try!

I've got some months left with premium, so I'll stick around for a bit. Maybe I'll get back into it, I miss the days when I checked this place religiously. And thank you! People as dedicated as yourself is what makes this place worth spending time on.

A vicious circle. I couldn't agree more! but, hear me out for a minute. That circle is payed back in a sense. 
I have over 600 watchers, daily I look up to 500 deviations. Its not a problem daily. Its the problem if I miss a couple of days. Then i got my work cut out for me. You see, people respect the time you take to look at their stuff just as much as you do. We are all working here and we all do our part to be seen. I know its tedious, I know it takes waaaaaay to much time. But its up to you if you wish to ''get out there'' per say.

I will take a look at it for sure! I have a tumblr account, thought i rarely go there, somehow it is not so appealing as some say. But, Instagram i will definitely check out!

It is a good place for an artist to be. Take the time daily, have a morning tea or coffee and log in to see what's up. half an hour a day is just enough to see what's going on and so forth. It does not take so much dedication. I am doing this for the benefit of myself and so that i can spread the art of others through my faves as well. We are all connected here in a way. We just have to help each other to achieve greatness. 

Have a good day :rose:

I used to be the same way a couple of years ago, but at some point I just started losing interest. And my personal taste is pretty far from what's considered "popular" here, so I've tried finding other art platforms that are a little closer to my own preferences. No luck yet though, so I guess I'll give this place one last chance ;P
