Important ask :)

Wow where does the time go? ...eh? ...not feeling me on that? Okay cool it was worth a shot I guess. To quickly update on me, I would mention that my folks are doing well, my dad's doing okay since his stroke almost two years ago, and I've got a comic project I'm working on, that will be finished sometime next year. It obviously hasn't been a great year for me keeping up on DA (more on that after he ask), even with all their friendly changes to it, but one of a few things I feel I've been very consistent on is updating my weekly polls.

Which brings me to my ask. As you can tell my Premium Membership runs out sometime around Feb-March. Pretty sure that means no more polls from me as a result. I know many of you guys enjoy them, and with DA's holiday offer if any of you guys are re-upping your Premium status' I'd deeply hope you'd consider me as your freebie or at least reblog this. Any amount of time is welcome, and if you guys have a poll idea you'd like to see asked just comment somewhere and I'll put it up. Just a reminder you have from now to I think Jan. 1st to get in on DA's offer.

DA's changed a lot since I've been here, I think some of the new changes are great for any artist savvy enough to use them. Sadly though, I've been thinking that once my Premium membership goes up it might be time to move away from this site. I've found that while DA is great for photographers models poets and certainly very skilled digital/traditional painters, comic artists have a tougher time getting noticed. Not to be all egotistical like ('I'm so fly' why doesn't anyone care about my work) I'm just starting to think that maybe other sites like Facebook or Twitter are better for the medium. Certainly with DA there's always a pressure to produce just to maintain what interest people have in you and your artwork. When you fail to produce regularly the pressure mounts even more because you know people are going to move on or walk away. With other mediums you can just reblog or comment on a social issue as a way of maintaining touch. I recognize that dA's done a great job with the new watch feed, and reblog option but the community here seems more specialized than other social networks...

...that and a lot of the people i normally talk with or used to converse with either are on here sparsely or have just flat out left. Not that I'm blaming them, life happens, trust me I get that more than anyone, but it's less of a reason to make an effort to invest time here. I know it's probably bad to talk about how rough my time has been on dA while asking for a Premium membership but I'm sure that what I've gone through is something that isn't terribly unfamiliar to you if you've been on dA for a good period of time. You've probably thought about ditching dA yourselves whether its a result of a lack of interest in your work or you socially but like me have still made a degree of effort to stay. Perhaps I'm just going through a down period, but as I think about the kind of artwork I want to create and how I want to get it out there dA doesn't seem like the right place anymore to do that. Not saying that I haven't had a great time, or met some great folks, I certainly have on both counts but maybe my season here has reached its course.

Howdy You! Hope all is fantastic with you and your family!
Been extremely overtaken by life. And I enjoy it so much. I have been doing art that is not digital. Along with something called "Project Life" (memory keeping of my family photos) which is an important thing to me.
And, i have a new grandson, he is a joy, yet exhausting. Next up will be a new granddaughter.

My very best to you and your family! Take good care of you!
:heart:

Are you on dA much anymore, or have you moved to other mediums?
