DA’s New Update

Not really a fan. As usual there are a lot of unnecessary changes, things get arbitrarily moved around for no good reason, and key features that I want yet again ignored. So yeah, not really a fan, but at least it’s not AS dramatic of a change as it has been before so... I guess that’s a plus?

REALLY wish I could remove the comments section on my frontpage, still. Been requesting that for over a decade now. I know for most people it’s not an issue, but for me specifically that is the place where pretty much ALL of the hate directed at me goes. It’s a nasty hateful spot on my frontpage that I really just want to get rid of. Hell, I’d trade allowing comments on my art again if I could remove that shit-hole from my frontpage.

Noticed that DA added an “activities” section to my frontpage in an effort to “bring you closer to the community” which is a nice thought but thoroughly unappreciated by me. Plus it’s ugly as hell. Took that off right away. If I wanted to be “closer to the community” I wouldn't be turning off comments on my art, would I DA? I’m sure it’ll be useful to someone, but it’s not for me.

Overall... not as bad as it could’ve been. I’ll begrudgingly get use to it.

BTW, if you’re not following me on twitter, you probably should. 9 times out of 10 that’s where most of the stuff going down on the internet seems to happen for me, and it often shapes what stories and things I’m gonna talk about in journals.

I also often post pics of games I’m playing, or, if it’s been a very bad night, I’ll spam Korrasami artwork from DA there. So come on in and take a peek! I enjoy using twitter far more than I do using DA in some respects...

My twitter:

New Art
I know a lot of you are upset that I don’t update very often unless it’s a journal. I’ve mentioned it before but I think I need to again... I have a job now which keeps me very preoccupied and I don’t get to work on anything for myself as much anymore. Coupled with that is that I am trying to get my various websites moved to a new server so I can’t update there either until it’s done. Journals are, unfortunately, the easiest way for me to keep SOMETHING posted here on DA. I write fast and there’s usually something new and interesting to talk about each week.

I did manage to get a simple cartoon done this week just for fun, so if you haven’t checked it out, please do!

Historical Reenactors by TomPreston

I wish I could give you guys a better timetable of when new content is coming, but at the moment I can’t. I’m really really sorry about that. Life is, unfortunately, full of peaks and valleys.
  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: I don't care - I ship it!
  • Reading: Twitter
  • Watching: Bob's Burgers
  • Playing: Bayonetta 2 Demo
  • Eating: Subway Sandwiches
  • Drinking: Decaf. Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Honest question time. Would any of my fans truly be despondent if I turned off all comments on my artwork?

There's a SYAC comic you did that I'm having trouble finding, it's of you showing off your artwork to a bunch of different people IRL, and then getting nothing but "You suck!" when you post it online. Do you remember what it was called?
