<rant> Is anyone else getting sick of all the crap that's on deviantART? OK I understand it's a great place for people to share their art and strike up conversations but at the same time it feels like it's become one big popularity contest. It seems that if you have less than 10 gazillion pageviews nobody pays attention to you and if they do the most you'll get is a "cool wrk" or "lolz its gud" comment but only because that person is trolling for a llama badge or whatever. I always prided myself on the fact that I reply to every comment I receive and when I give feedback I try to be as useful as possible, rather than just brown-nosing the artist. On top of all that there is a load of shit art. I'm not gonna sit here and say I'm the best damn artist on the site, 'cos I'm not, but there is stuff on there that really doesn't deserve the attention it gets while quality artists go unnoticed. If you don't believe me look at the Daily Deviations for the past week, nothing is original and I've seen better art scrawled on the walls of public toilets (seriously, I've seen some pretty neat graffiti).
