I Know You Exist... by Mianguine Adobe Photoshop Stamp by SoulTutorial Wacom User by adhiwangsa Blood type O by HornedStorm animal artist, not furry by ohhperttylights

Psuedo artist, wannabe musician and overall dumbass. Hi I'm Ben and I draw, animate and design things.

I was born in Umtata, hand reared in Johannesburg and currently residing in Cape Town, South Africa. I'm a walking contradiction.

[since no-one reads, TLDR version below.  You won't be able to miss it]

Hey internet. :wave:


As you may (more likely not) have noticed, I'm not very active on DA lately.  This is only partly due to work commitments and mainly due to not really seeing the point of this site anymore.

For those who were born yesterday, this site has been on a steady decline for a while now.  I can hardly call this a professional looking portfolio that I can send to clients for review, there are FAR better platforms to serve that purpose.  The final nail in the coffin for me to type this up is when I submitted my last 2 or 3 pieces during the course of this month and it gained very little traction, especially after one of them garnered close to 800 notes on tumblr (I don't get those kind of numbers that often, but more often than on DA).  

Now this leads me to think of 2 reasons why this is happening:

1 - I don't draw NEARLY enough porn if at all.
2- People have moved on from using DA on a day-to-day basis as a part of their daily routine.

In reality, other social media sites have taken over and the need for a DA profile as an artist is a thing of the past.  Hell, it's as simple as snapping a picture with your phone and sharing it on twitter or instagram and it's out there for the world to see.  Rather than spending 30 minutes to an hour uploading, categorising, tagging and adding to a gazillion groups in hopes of getting at least 1 view or a favourite and perhaps, when you're lucky, a comment.

Now, DESPITE saying all of this, I'm not going to leave DA.  There are still some decent people here and I've got a tiny bit of a following.  Though I am going to treat DA as just an obligation, the last place to update once I do my rounds on my portfolio and social media.

Cool, so yeah.  See you on the interwebs I guess.

Peace
