So if you read my previous journal you know that me and quite a few people I know can't stand DA's latest update.
Good news is, activity feed and watching collections can be turned on.
Bad news is, features of collections your work gets put in right next to your deviations can't be turned on.
Good news is, I have an idea. Bad news is, all my ideas are usually some degree of crazy. Well, anyway. Listen up.
So DA wants us to play with collections? Well, two can play that game. Or even more people. I'll be honest, there first reason I'm here is sharing my
comics and talking about my
comics, not sorting other people's art into folders. But there's quite a lot of other art I enjoy discussing and would like to support. I wouldn't want my art or any art I like to end up in some crappy collection with MLP fetish pictures or whatever. I can't stop that, DA made sure of that. But I can create collections myself. Of comics I like, of art by my friends, of any art that I think needs more attention. So this is what I'll try doing.
Right now I'll dump a couple hours of my time into that. I value my time but I also value other people's work. I don't think I have an amazing taste or whatever but I like to think that what comes around goes around and if I spend some time on this maybe my work will end up in cooler collections that "randum pics 2" or something. Let's give it a try?
Feel free doing the same and/or sharing this idea!
Maybe I'll do some feature later, we'll see how it goes. I don't really want to do DA's usual "feature my work and I'll feature yours" journal anymore because I'm tired of people picking old fanart or randomness I drew years ago because Cop Story is obviously not cool enough, but it's a rant for another time.
