I have decided to delete my DeviantArt account altogether, and focus on my ArtStation account as my main way to publish my visual art.
The reason is mainly realizing which social media I truly need for my visual art. I experience that ArtStation as a site has more focus on quality, advanced graphic design, artistic value and realism which I’m always striving for.
As opposed to that, Deviantart has more quantity with a medley of things, including screenshots, generator images without the personal artistic touch and the forms of interest in fandoms that I’m not into. There has been an influx of those things in the site, especially in the past few years and so the site is no longer what it used to be.
I based the group in Deviantart called Tolkien-Voronwë since as many might know, I am into the books of JRR Tolkien (more so than the fan of the movies), especially the Silmarillion and I will remain as such. The group has been my main reason to stay in the site, and now I will transfer the ownership of the group to my co-founder Yvan Strong. May she take a good care of it.
As for myself, I will remain as a Tolkien fan, but my ways of expressing it will change. I will still be checking DeviantArt from time to time, to see what my favourite artists there have created. But I won’t be contributing there any longer.
