Hi I'm Minty!! I'm an aspiring cartoonist/storyboard/concept artist :0 I used to do a lot of digital art but I don't have Photoshop anymore, so these days I mostly just do pencil work u~u For the most part I draw fanart but you'll see a lot of my original characters around my gallery too!
Interests
I hate to say it, but I'm seriously considering abandoning deviantart permanently. Maybe even deactivating my account. Before everyone freaks out, let me explain why.

I really do not want to support this website anymore. The general community has, well...deviated from the site's intended purpose, and the staff doesn't seem to have a problem with it. Art theft, bases, and cyberbullying are out of control, and it's pretty much going ignored by the staff. Not only that, but the mature content filters are being heavily abused.

Just today, I saw an explicit drawing in the category examples when submitting my own work, with no block or warning at all. A good portion of this site's population is made up of children, and I am very upset that this kind of thing is practically being thrown in their faces.

The front page, while admittedly showing a lot of great artwork, often features gory or provocative photos/drawings. A heavily photoshopped photo of a busty woman in lingerie is more likely to get popular than an actual piece of artwork that someone created, and that is disgusting to me.

Reporting this kind of thing does no good, the staff will simply never get back to you or claim that it has already been reported and deemed not problematic.

Aside from these issues, I really just don't enjoy using deviantart in general anymore. Please understand that this is not because of friends or anything! I still really do love to see the new art that my friends have made and enjoy chatting with them! I'd hate for anyone's feelings to be hurt because they thought I was leaving deviantart because they were annoying or anything. :'< If I do leave, I will miss all of you very much! I will make an effort to still check out friends' pages to see their new works, because I don't wanna lose touch with any of you!

I'm still making up my mind about all this, but really leaning towards abandoning my account. I've even considered deactivating, since I don't like the idea of just leaving my art up if I'm not using the site anymore.

As most of you know, I am very active on tumblr, so if you have an account on there that's probably the best way to reach me! ;o; My main account is here: tinymintywolf.tumblr.com and my art blog is here: mint-art.tumblr.com I will be messaging other friends with information on how to contact me elsewhere, please let me know if you would like that!

Also!!! Really important!!! If I owe you artwork of any kind, whether it was a really overdue art trade or something else I promised for you, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I have probably forgotten about it and I'd hate to disappoint anyone before I leave!

I'm so sorry to have to do this, but I really think it's for the best. If I ever were to come back to deviantart, I would most likely start over with a whole new account. But I don't really see that happening in the near future. I will make another journal post in the next few days with my final decision.
