Hi guys! First of all I'm sorry to tell this (actually I'm not that sorry) but I will be possibly submitting less stuff here in the future.
There is couple of reasons for this but the major thing was (in my opinnion) the unfair rules/guidelines of DeviantArt. I'm not a big fan of art cencorship or the fact that rules often create unjust behavior amongst the people who laid the rules (admins etc). I also don't care about shaming or obvious moral highways. Things are not often that black and white. I have been here for 8 years and most of that time I have been an active member (submitting content almost every week, joining groups and talking/commenting with people). As more time past I noticed that the guidelines of this site were suffocating my creativity. I was always thinking what I could draw so that I could then submit it here. "I can't draw that, it will get deleted " was constantly in my mind. Also the unfairness of the rules is nagging me all the time (how there can be naked women on the frontpage with their pussies wide open but you can't submit a drawing if it is too sexual). The content I will be "producing" more in the future obviously does not suit this place. This of course leads to less submitting here.
The second big thing was the fact that even though I have been here for so long I never have really connected with other artists with same interests as me. Nobody has really talked with me about the fandoms I'm in or any art related stuff... I don't count any weird pervs who try to flirt with me and have nothing to say about my art. I have this one so called DA acquaintance that I regularly chat with about stuff. I think in that case the only reason we really started talking was the fact we both are from same country so... that one does not count so much either. Also the fact that even though I have been here quite long and have some followers I don't seem to have any active ones. They don't contact me or give me feedback or fav my stuff regurally. So the main problem in my case here is: no interaction. I don't crave social interaction with Internet strangers but some kind of feedback conversation would be nice and not just the "this is nice or not nice" messages.
I have never had my own site or any other place for my art before, only DA. Sure I have posted some things on Facebook but they are there for my friends and family (my FB profile is private and I only friend people that I actually know or care about). I made the decision to keep my art in one place many years ago already and it has been like that until now. SO I have made a Tumblr account mainly for my NSFW stuff. Because the nature of the blog I won't be linking it anywhere or telling my username. If you happen to come across it you will still regonize me from my profile picture and maybe from the similarity of the username. I'm not trying to be anonymous or hiding so if you are REALLY interested, message me and we will see what happens. See you around!
