STATUS UPDATE by Zerwolf

Hey ya'll!

As you might've already seen I'm not very active on this site and main reason for that has been huge lack of feedback (comments, especially with constructive criticism) or any kind of other activity which just feels meaningless. Why bother uploading anything if nobody cares about it? Offering commissions is like talking to walls, just like in DeviantArt.
People seem to be very silent/inactive which is a shame since Weasyl is pretty functional and looks nice overall. Of course this is only my view but I can guarantee I'm not the only one. And yes, I'm also guilty of being one of those inactive people which IS caused by others not participating. So it's a big hamster wheel.

BUT in case you've followed me here and would like to see more artwork from me, you can always follow me elsewhere where I'm way more active like Fur Affinity, SoFurry & DeviantArt. I also upload smaller artworks & offer freebies randomly on my Twitter account so feel free to check them out!

As for my Weasyl account...I might upload some new stuff sometime in near future but if it continues to look like putting an art exhibition on a graveyard, I'll just give up and stay on other sites. Thank you.

    Yeah, I don't really use my Weasyl account that much, I just use it to follow people who left FA. I have a few of my things here, but I never got around to posting everything. Same thing with my DA account. I'm not much of a commenter anyway, mostly because I have no idea what to say other than "Nice art!". The last time I tried something like that I think I accidentally pissed off a friend of mine a little. Of course, I was really tired at the time and my "Shut the hell up before you say something stupid" filter was turned off, but that's no excuse. I'm still kicking myself over that.

      I know how hard it can be when you don't really know what to say about an art piece but even a little comment like that can save some artist's day. Of course people are different and some won't appreciate that but I myself learned it's better than nothing. Anything positive makes a huge impact!

      Also it seems people take criticism in very different ways and might get offended but that usually depends on how mature they are to accept their skills or some of their works aren't perfect or how the commenter puts their mind into words (not everyone even know what good criticism is and/or have a polite way to express themselves). But if nobody says anything then it's no good for any of us. I'm also not sure if many people nowadays have the backbone to criticize anything straightforward and instead they gossip behind the artist's back on other sites, thinking they won't see it (this has happened to me).

        Well I've always though you had great art, so to me just saying "Nice art!" feels a little...I don't know, hollow? But I don't always know why I like a particular piece, I just know that I like it, so it's hard to leave something more detailed than that sometimes. I'm trying to be better at that, though.

          Yeah, I know what you mean.
          We don't learn if we don't try. :)
