Can anyone out there give me a REAL benefiting reason why I should still have an account here? Because I can't think of one... I've contemplated closing up shop for months now, it's just become a waste of time to me... But I dunno...
Why I think you should stay: . You are a great artist, your artworks are well done. - Your artworks are popular. Especially your Sonic related works. Getting 50-200+ favs on fan art is far above average. - If it's about dA's standards and deletion policy : They might be annoying you, but are other places really better? I remember you were angry because FA was getting really bitchy (or so it sounded). So again, is this place really so bad compared to others? - Meaningful feedback: Is hard to get. The majority of comments are one word comments, even in outstanding artworks, so this is a common problem, not only to you. - You support some rare Sonic characters and helped make them more popular. Is this not a reason for you to be proud?
Of course, the last word on this matter is yours, but maybe this place is not as bad on second look.
You have a lot of people on here who love seeing your art. Though, be it as it may, the choice is up to you, and I don't blame you in the least. I've contemplated closing up here myself, as I rarely get comments (or at least ones that aren't "OMG SEXEH!!1!" related).
Why not take a short break from deviantart and give a new place a try. It seems more like your stuck in a rut with the same daily routine rather than hating the way this site is run. A change of scenery might be good. It would really suck if you closed your account here then years later when your over 65, retired and soaking up the sun in Florida, you jump out of your deck chair by the pool and scream "HOLY SHIT! I CAN'T BELIEVE I CLOSED MY DEVIANTART ACCOUNT DOWN!? Think of how many pageviews I could of gotten by now!?... oh my god...... that was so fucking stupid of me!!... whyyyyyy..... !! Oh god....! ...god...FUCK!!!!"
For me I keep an account here so as that I may improve and get opinions(recently started sketching every day if possible), and I have noticed even within the first week that I have improved that tiny little bit practice gives, though was hoping people would throw in critic at some point.
To be honest, you do have some great pieces you've made or colored, and Hero361 has a great point, you need to be open to drawing other things!
*also hi again, until I started posting again I've not touched DA in months XD
Your art is awesome, your style is cool and the way you draw your women is downright sexy. Sure in order to get more attention to your stuff may require drawing characters from other shows that arent sonic or fosters related but isnt trying new characters from other shows all what an artist is about as well?
