Alright. Now I've become entrapped by a really beautiful image, and I have to give it a proper critique of my own. First off, I'm going...

Pastels for Easter by Boomagoo

There are actually two things about this one, but they're both related. The first is a lack of color. The second is that it's very over...

Is anyone else seeing the words "mature content" showing up in my latest journal?

I've Made a Dishearteing Decision.

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 26, 2015, 7:25 PM



So it turns out the "Mature Content" label is, in fact, a new feature.  It's not only a move that's even more bone-headed than firing 60% of the
help desk (Why the fuck would you warn people about a thumbnail they're ALREADY LOOKING AT?), it's incredibly distracting.
It's going to make my feature journals look like shit.

So I've decided that I'm no longer going to do my monthly features.

I'm debating whether or not I will do any more watcher features as well.  And it's sad that I can't give back to the community anymore.
dA just got significantly less fun for me.  And the people who enjoy my journals get to suffer for it.  The blame goes to DeviantART.

I never thought I'd see the day where I was no longer a cheerleader for this site. But I can't.  I just can't, anymore.
Day after day, I'm watching them actively destroy what used to be the greatest site I've ever been to.  And this time, I can't defend them.

In 7 months, my subscription of nearly 10 years will expire.  I will not be renewing it.
At that point, I suspect I will grow annoyed with the ads and other limitations, and I just won't be around as much.

Great fucking job, guys.  Have fun re-inventing Instagram.

I do . . . stuff. I like to create things. I used to draw, but now I mainly do photography. I photograph any subject that catches my fancy. Lately, I've been focused on fine art nudes. But that's not all I do with a camera. I'd actually like to make a living with a camera, but we'll see how it goes. I might be a sculptor, tomorrow, for all I know.

If you're not familiar with me (which I suspect is the case if you're reading this), I absolutely LOATHE the DeviantArt watermark. On principle, I don't fave or comment on any deviation that uses it. It's the only way I know how to protest against it.
