Is basically how I think this site functions, at this point.

No, that's misleading. NOT "at this point," it's how it's always been and I'm frankly rather sick of it. And yes, I'm aware of the irony of a straight male protesting against the abundance of breasts available for free viewing.
But my point here is that DeviantArt is not the place for this crap, I don't think. And I get it, artistic nudes. Woo, go for it, photographers. Justify it however you want. And I've seen truly artistic nudes so don't think I'm against those! But when you want to do an artistic nude, MAKE IT ARTISTIC. It needs some aspect of art to make it... ART.
But no. Every day I log onto DA and the front page has some very plain, very dull pictures of girls just standing there naked or topless. No fancy pose, no creative work, just them, standing there naked for no reason. And the idiotic masses that inhabit this earth go "ZOMG, BEWBS, MUST FAVORITE" and these get pressed right into my face.That sounded wrong...
But like I said, it's been like this forever, why should today be special enough to make a journal pop out of me? BECAUSE THERE ARE THREE OF THESE IN THE DAILY DEVIATIONS RIGHT NOW.
THREE. THREE pictures of women simply EXISTING while naked are somehow given AWARDS on this ARTISTIC COMMUNITY.
And the biggest offender? This one: [link]
(NSFW of course). That is a woman lying naked. Nothing else. Actually she looks hung over.
But what about this made it a Daily Deviation? Why does something like this deserve an award? There's nothing remarkable about it. It's just some girl who has lost SO MUCH WEIGHT that you can see her fucking ribs sticking through her CHEST.
That's not appealing! That's distressing! I'd be terrified of having a woman like that because I'd be afraid she would CRUMBLE IN MY ARMS. I'd be afraid that if I left her alone at home, I'd come home one day to a SKELETON.
I'm off track. Girl in picture? Eat a fucking cheese burger before you crumble to dust. Devious community? Stop promoting this crap. I'm tired of it. I come to the art site for creative and unique art, not for boobies. If I wanted boobies I would go to a porn site or something, Christ.UPDATE HERE
So I'm slowly but surely working my way back into art. Expect a crazy long comic out of me in the next day or two as I finish my art trade with ~s0s2
(finally, I'M SO SORRY!)
I'll also soon be posting my addition to *TheArgoNinja
's collaboration soon, then working on my gift to *Huispe
for her birthday <3
After that, my schedule is totally clear, and the cliché comic will finally be resuming. After that's over, I'll be working out some character designs and starting Meraki, while of course hitting up any birthday gifts that come up in the time being of course.
The reason I've been so inactive these past couple of months is because I've honestly had no time off to recover or work on art. I'm occasionally getting a Sunday off, but that's it. Last day off was TECHNICALLY yesterday but I got called into work anyway. None in sight for a couple weeks. Pray for my sanity, for it is waning TT_TT
Beginning of the semester I said my productivity would likely rise because I would be on a schedule, but frankly it crashed to a dead halt just because I have had almost no time off whatsoever. Looks like it'll probably persist until the end of the semester too, unfortunately.
Well, wish me luck. For now, peace!
