I do hope your week was a good one and not quite as stressful as it has been around campus! >..<"
I just wanted to let you all know that presently I am in charge of a couple different groups, 3 of them drawing oriented, while 1 deals with writing.
I want them to be a more approachable environment since I am hearing from people and also from my own experiences, that the community on dA has been lacking. I don't want that to happen any more.
I'm going to try and do some of my own promotional work, getting some special events going again and seeing where those will lead, and also just taking a step in looking at the art that is submited and making a point of commenting. I don't know about all of you, but there are some days when I just click the 'x' at the top of the box and don't look at the art.
But, we watch groups and people for a reason, because we think they're good and they create something that we like and can relate to.
The first step in making a better community here on dA needs to be us reaching out to others and helping them with their art. You don't have to have a masters in the subject to know what you think looks good or what needs improving... so help others out. garunteed once you start doing that, you will also find yourself with help in your court.
Forgive me if I am speaking form a soap box, I just feel this needs to be said sometimes for those artists like myself
who came here hoping for a place to grow in my art and meet new people and aren't getting that like I thought. And please, if you have suggestions and are a part of any of the groups I'm contributor to I'd love to hear your own suggestions for improvement as well.
Thank you all for your time~.
