i know no one will read this bc no one follows me. the other day i posted some of the best art i have done in my whole life. the most favs i got on one pic: 5. a measly 5. 2 years ago when i actually posted things on a regular basis, i felt discouraged to post anything bc everything on the front page was sooo good and i was sooo envious of those artists. i strived to be like them. even though i felt discouraged bc i knew i would never be good enough to be on the front page, i kept posting my art, in hopes that someone would eventually appreciate me. 2 years later... i haven't benn on deviantart for some time. the artists i remember being on the front page are no longer there. now there is... well... crap. after browsing through over 500 deviations on the front page i see maybe 50 that are actually worthy of the front page. some of this shit is pretty much just shit. and how did they get on the front page? because they are POPULAR. what i wonder is HOW these people got popular? their art doesnt account for it. i look at my art, and i look at the art on the front page and i wonder, WTF? how did deviantart turn into such trash over the past 2 years? and when will it be MY turn for recognition? sorry for the rant. it's just how i feel. miss the days when the front page was full of the best art. not full of whoever is popular at the time, whether their art is worth it or not.
