Dear watchers, friends, and llama badge bestowers,
I am leaving Deviant Art. Not logging out, but leaving, for good. It's not that I don't think my art is good or that I'm being attacked by anyone...I am just appalled by the lack of enforcement of rules here.
For any form of art, whether it be performing arts, visual media, music, etc, it has to have some form of standards, otherwise anything and everything can pass for art (and thus art will lose its meaning). Deviant Art set up standards for submissions to its site, however, they have not been upheld. When rules clearly state that x or y are not acceptable, then I expect that x and y not appear in any deviations. Even if they do by some chance appear in deviations, they should not be ignored by the staff who created the rules in the first place. In fact, they should be taken down immediately without further ado.
To all the people who have commented, favorited, watched, and submitted my art to groups, thank-you for your support, patience, lols and time. However, my artwork will no longer be available on this site, as I will be busy building my own. Furthermore, I will have my art displayed in several brick-and-mortar galleries in the future, as I am now a good-standing member of several art leagues.
