Hey gang! I'm curious: How do you use DeviantART, and do you find it useful to your needs? 

I'll be honest: I've been touch and go with DA for a very long time. I'll go through long dry spells of activity, mostly because I've never really seen a reason to be active here. I know that with most communities you get what you put in, but unlike other social media communities, DA seems to skew either very young, or very... ummm... perverted. 

Hey listen, I'm not judging anyone. If furry or anime fanfic is your bag, I say do it. It's just not mine. I know that fan art is a huge component to finding an audience on DA (beyond being a stellar artist, which I'd consider myself to be adequate at best), and have spoken with several incredible artist buddies who've found success here who've strategically used fan art as a means to draw people into their work. I'm a little more stubborn, and have a difficult time drawing fan art of things I'm not really into. I'm pretty sure if I spent time each week cultivating video game or anime fan art, I could find a following... but then I'd be exposed for not really being a fan, and think that would ultimately hurt what I'm trying to do. Is that stupid of me?

I dunno. DA is one of those knotted up riddles I've yet to unravel. So I'm curious, how do you guys use it, and does it work for you?

On the flipside, as a community member, what do you like to see? Are you a big fan art junkie? Do you go after original ideas? Is frequency a big component for you? Let me hear it.

I'm a cartoonist, podcaster, father, and husband. I dig on pop culture; consider Big Trouble in Little China to be the greatest movie ever made; think Electric 6 is the greatest band ever; and secretly wish I had the power to rock a mullet a la Jack Burton or James Dalton. If you don't know who they are, we can't be friends.

I don't know what I did to deserve such an honor, but I shall do my best to feed and care for my new llama badges, with the hope of eventually breeding them and giving new baby llama badges to deserving folk. Is caring for Llama badges expensive? Only Llama I know is named Tina, and she never wants to eat her food.

Hey man, thanks for favoriting my Jack Burton sprite!
Always nice to see fellow fans of Big Trouble in Little China.
I just noticed that you're actually the co-admin of that group, too, so hell yeah! Haha :D
