Will you share this on your journal?
Don't worry, Im not leaving Deviant Art totally but I have decided to leave nearly all groups, and no longer submit my work to any of them.
I have been thinking long and hard about this and I truly believe the lack of activity on here is due to groups.
Even I get annoyed at seeing the same image appear in my watch list many times - many groups feature the same image.
My thought process is this, if I want to watch an artist or models work then I will add a watch to their profile.
I do not see why "Groups" should get the credit (and watches) for featuring other peoples work.
OK, I know that by adding my work to groups then my work is more likely to be seen by a wider audience, but I already have 13,000 watchers of my work. Of them, only a handful every comment or fave my work.
I really do appreciate every comment that my watchers make on my work and make every effort to reply to every one.
Here are just a few of my latest fave photos: Comments would be very much appreciated. to see some of the work unsafe for DA follow me on Tumblr - [link]
