I want to say thanks to all the people on DA that have helped me, given advice and commented.  I want to tell everyone that watches me or is a fan of my artwork that DeviantArt will no longer be my mainstream art medium as :

1. I have not even received a single commission.

2. Secondly a coworker of mine has informed me that she went to hot topic with her best friend and saw them selling her artwork on Tshirts without permission.  DA and hot topic have been in the news about art theft. 

3. Not yielded any payment at all.

4. I have nearly reached my goal of 10,000 pageviews and well over 30,000 views.  That's more than enough popularity for me.  I know that I am a good artist.

5. I will be trying to sell my artwork at local art clubs and restaurants.

I have not yet decided if I will open a tumblr or a facebook art page yet, but I am seriously considering it as they don't nearly have as many complaints.  On top of that others have recommended it.

These references are not just coincidence.  Tons of people don't say the same things for years about an organization.

I am a creator an artist who views the world as such and I am on this website to better develop and expand my creativity. I am currently designing a video game with hand drawn sketches of mechanics and positions for the characters. In the meantime I post pictures of miscellaneous creations that have been set in my mind for sometime.
