DAFTW Update

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 10, 2014, 5:14 PM


Sorry about not updating the Feature of the month yet guys, Its coming this weekend for sure!
and then something super secret. Heh. I wonder what it could be~

A storm passed through my area and I lost power for a week straight. My internet was just restored so I have not had time to take care of anything. It just feels good to be back in action.

And just to make sure this journal is not wasting space lets have a discussion.



I've asked this question before, about two years ago, but I was wondering what all the new people in this group thought about the topic so i'll ask it again.

A friend of mine was browsing through my art work and said something that really got me thinking what she said was "Wow you are pretty good, you should have a lot more people following you! You deserve more publicity than this!" Well at the time I just sort of agreed with her saying something cheesy like "Yeah I agree" and "You think so?" It was not until later that I actually thought about what she said.

I was browsing through some 'well known' artists here on DA and I started to notice one thing in common with every page I went to. What I noticed was that every Five minutes or so someone would post asking for advice or ask for a request, gloating, spamming, self promoting ect. Now I'm not saying that these are annoying and stupid, what I am trying to say is if I were in a situation like that I would feel bad not being able to help each and everyone of the people coming to me for advice. It got me to think, you know maybe being an underground artist may not be such a bad thing. Maybe not being well known is kind of nice ya know? I don't feel pressured to put out work, (even though I barely do anything now) but even with all of that said there is still that part of me that would like to see what its like being a 'famous' artist. Maybe it would actually help me become even better with the pressure of the public on me about new works, or even just to help support myself by filling commissions and or selling my own art, so the question is this guys...

Do you think internet fame is like a double edged sword?
What are your opinions on being a well known artist?

Due to the high amount of incoming gallery submissions, the reviewing process is taking more time than usual to complete. We have gotten well over 60 submissions in just the last 8 hours while I was at work.
Thank you for understanding, we are doing our best to keep our folders clean and organized for your viewing convenience.
