Hi all! I require your assistance and your opinions! <33
Recently, I've been.. Wondering about a few things.
First of all, I want to know of an artist that you find REALLY sweet and approachable, who you actively seek out their work and coment/watch/favorite their stuff regularly.
I want to know what makes them so lovable to you, and why you actively seek out their work, if you can think of it.
I'm improving my artwork slowly, and I seek help for that. But more than that, I want to be approachable, a role model, someone that people look up to and WANT to talk to. I want to be the one person who (come on, I know I've done this, so have you all ) the one artist you send a note to, to tell them how much you love their stuff.. And they respond. And they're nice. And you flip your shit at how happy you are that they notice you. I want to get noticed, and I want to be liked
I hope that doesn't sound selfish. I... In real life, I'm scared of talking to people. I always feel like I'm not good enough, like I'll never be good enough, I'll never do things correctly and I shouldn't talk to people at all, for fear of looking and acting and sounding like an idiot. It doesn't matter if I'm confident with myself.. My confidence shatters once I'm in a crowded room, or around people I don't know.
So I really want to know..
What makes someone a 'fun' artist? Someone approachable, kind, and understanding? What has a particular artist done to make YOU personally happy?
Alright on to my second topic of the night.
As you all know, dA and Furaffinity are my two most used sites for sharing my artwork. Deviantart is the first site I began using, many years ago and many MANY drawings ago However, as a mostly NSFW artist (and I accept and embrace that), dA is not specifically meant for my artwork. I use Furaffinity for mostly my finished pieces and my NSFW pieces that are more mature than dA allows. Sadly, it seems that Furaffinity is taking a turn for the worse in how it is ran and how the site moderators are dealing with their problems. Many people are switching to other sites, including Inkbunny, SoFurry, and Weasyl.
Inkbunny is a site that I downright do NOT want to use, for many reasons, and I'll keep those to myself.
SoFurry is a well run site, but it is an older site with a clientele specifically geared towards stories and text.
Weasyl seems to be the best option for many artists, and I see quite a few people switching to mainly Weasyl. However, it is a small site currently, with very few users.
I'm not sure how much I love DeviantART anymore, but literally 90% of my fanbase is on this site. You ALL have made it worthwhile for me to produce artwork, and I love producing work to see what you all think of it.
But I've been thinking about producing on Weasyl. If all goes well, I want to be active on all 3 sites, and if things end up going REALLY well over there, I might...
Switch mostly to Weasyl.
