I'm an art student who loves designing characters and exploring new techniques :D
It might be a while before I get the chance to post new artwork because I'm dealing with a broken and gutted desktop, but in any case, Weasyl will likely be my primary art posting platform gallery thingy thing.
I'll be blunt, dA has been more and more disappointing as time goes on. I have been taking longer breaks, mostly due to art school mayhem, but I find that I don't really miss the place. The recent discussion topic that outlined some of dA's stances on copyright and art theft was a huge blow that left me with a ton of secondhand embarrassment. Shortly after, I found out that over 50% of staff had been fired with 0 notice. These are people that have been working for dA for over 10 years, being told in passing (literally) "oh btw you don't work for the company anymore."
Simply put, that's not the kind of place I want to continue supporting.
A friend reminded me of Weasyl and I remembered how much fun I had here. So, I'll be trying it out again. :)
