I'm getting off the site for a long time. Maybe forever.

I am beyond sick of how hostile, unhelpful, and unfriendly the community on this site is. This is the last thing I need with all the other stresses in my life right now. Apparently all of you just get off on saying hurtful things and harassing people.

I've been on this site for nearly ten years and it's never been as bad as it is now. It's a cesspool of elitism and general asshole behavior.

Have fun, deviantart. I won't be swimming in your shit anymore.

I predominantly draw my own original characters from the novel series I'm working on, which you can read here: www.fictionpress.com/s/2927969…

About me? I'm a med student, and I like to write, draw, and make stupid jokes in my spare time. (Did you hear about the fire at the circus? It was in tents.)

And that about sums up my life.

I have a hard time feeling confident about my art as it is, and in the past couple days I've made a few forums just about things in the community I wanted to foster discussion about, which ended up turning into public whipping posts for me and my art. I've been dragged through the mud so much at this point that I'm considering deleting my entire gallery, leaving deviantart, and never doing any art ever again.

I fully expect to get put down and ridiculed here too. I won't even bother asking for people to be kind or gentle with me, since everyone on these forums is so good at missing the point. All I've wanted out of life lately is some freaking encouragment and life has given me literally all the opposites of that. Just not really sure what else to do.
Congratulations to everyone on this thread for missing the point and commenting on my art and my skill level when I deliberately asked everyone not to do that. That was not the purpose of this thread. I'm done having this discussion.

Cesare Borgia bored me. He talked too much.”

Hanging out in the Vatican was pretty rad, though.

I've felt lately that a lot of advice I've gotten regarding my art is to either thin down my lines or do away with lines completely. I really don't like this new attitude taken toward art that people will try and pass a trendy stylistic thing off as an actual skill. Not that I'm knocking lineless art, it just seems silly that varying styles among artists are often seen as a bad thing. 

I, personally, use defined lines in my work. I like how it looks, but most people don't and try to get me to change it.

What do you guys think? Have you been told your art wasn't good because of a style choice? I often feel like people who critique art on this site never take style into account when giving others advice.

Hello there, beautiful deviant. :hug:

''Once, you are told to only be a spark in the universe, but one day, you will shine brighter than the other stars.''

I am only passing by to tell you that, while there may be people who are bad, there will always be good people too, and that no matter what, you will still be loved and cared about. Don't believe what people say when they try to bring you down. Because you are worth it, and you are amazing just the way you are. <3 Never give up, because everything that is worth it is worth the try, even if it is hard. Hold on. :hug:

Hope you have a wonderful day lovely. <3

Cordially, CelineDGD,
Happy Helper of the Happy-Squad
