I am not so sure about traditional media and other art categories on dA, well actually some info about traditional media too, but what is up with the photomanip community? The feedback has declined tremendously! And I am not just talking about myself because I know that my work is mediocre at best so it's OK. I am also talking about top notch artists with their A games in photomanipulation art.
The other day I also saw posts from traditional artists on my facebook account about how they don't care much about deviantart anymore. So I guess it is spreading across all artists, esp. dA oldies.
Now a days, I even see so many people remove commenting options from their deviations. Is it because they don't like to receive the two word comments that is a trend on dA now?
The overall art and supporting spirit has declined to a huge extent. Why is it that people are losing their touch with dA? Is it the increasing porn on the website? Is it the increasing quality of people's work who once were beginners? The declining quality of DDs? People's expectations of getting DDs?
