So I've been really out of the loop on here, which may be why no one's been really looking at my new work. I'm right now living in a rather solitary environment artistically, and so I'm having a hard time deducing if no one is viewer my work because no one cares about me because I'm a rather absent figure on DA or because the work I'm making is bad...

Wahwahwah poop.

it's been a long long time since I've used this website myself, but from what I remember it seems like it's fundamentally one of social networking -- the more you interact with other artists the more feedback you will get. silly that the socializing gets ahead of the artistic quality but that may be a big part of the silence..

I don't usually comment anymore because I'm not sure what artists are looking for, but since you're asking, will just say that I went through my mountains of deviations in my message center today and deleted/unwatched all the artists I no longer felt a connection to.. yours was one of the few I kept. Your work is a delight to the eyes, beautiful and eerie and mystic in a way that woke me up in the most satisfying way. I lingered to look and that's a rare thing. I say keep your chin up and keep creating!

some artists have less comments than you have and they are fantastic also..those    who have a lot of comments are working on it..."i think"..they interact back and forth with other artists or their visitors..but of course this takes effort and time;  popularity has nothing to do with being good...far from it very often..

Yeah, I guess I'm just remembering when the community was smaller? Thanks for the feedback tho!

your work is pretty darn awesome.  my comment rate dropped a ridiculous amount as well.  I think most people on here just like facebook and a bunch of other locations would rather just like and not really put that much thought into actually writing an indepth comment.

Huh, yeah I can see that. Perhaps I'm even a little guilty of it. Ten years ago DA was pretty much the only networking site I knew of, how crazy is that!? But it all changes a bit fast for me at least...

the lack of comments is discouraging for me as well.  I have even been tempted to delete this thing again.  I will explore your page and comment on what calls to me.
