I've been a member of Deviantart for about two years. On one hand i feel happy to be part of the same community as so many great artists, to see and be able to comment on their work. On the other hand i've witnessed the degree in which you have to "advertise" and "promote" your artwork via public relations, something that i was never good at, in the first place.
In other words, in order to be "seen" here, you have to be constantly on your toes, as far as other people's artwork is concerned. You have to comment, you have to make constant "friends", to be everywhere and see everything - almost. And that doesn't only concern deviantart or similar social networking sites, but it's a part of everyday life. Coming into contact with people, having a smile on your face, saying the things they want to hear, advertising yourself, being a manager of your work.
People who are better at public relations may become more "successful" (in social terms) in the end, compared to others who are better at their work, but who can't get into this whole "public relations" thing.
Anyway. As always. This here is my personal blog. In greek only.
This here is my "Disco Dog" animated short on youtube.
And i am the grumbling lethal rabbit. Hope you enjoy my artwork, feel free to comment if you like!
