Cleaned house...and the sad state of Digital Dolls

I went through and cleaned up the people I follow.  I shrunk the list from 95 to like 30-something.  I deleted off a lot of inactive accounts or people who post things that I'm just not into anymore.  Mostly it was inactive accounts.

If you feel like you have been wrongly deleted, comment here or send me a note.  After a while things were blurring together. 

That being said, if you are a digital doller or pixel artist (and I mean an actual doller, not a tracer, dollmaker user, Kisekae 2 users, or a Brony), feel free to watch me.  I'll watch you back.  If you'd like someone to help teach you about pixel art, feel free to drop me a note.  I don't bite. 

Also, what is with the sad state of Digital Dolls?  It gets worse every time I come here.  Besides the people I watch, there were only a couple of dolls I could find from the last month.  I know dolling isn't completely dead because Glam! is still a thing.  My understanding is that ponies and furries belong in either Fanart or Digital Art and the Kisekae 2/dollmaker stuff goes into scaps.  Really, none of dollmaker stuff, to me, belongs on DA period.  If you didn't create it, you shouldn't be allowed to post it.  The tracing isn't even as bad as the dollmaker stuff is now. 

While we are miscating, maybe I should post my dolls back under pixel art like everyone else is.  I mean, I wouldn't do it but I do feel like it. 

Anyway, it's incredibly frustrating as a doller. I can see why people keep leaving.  It's hard to connect with other dollers.  It's difficult to get inspired when you can't find anyone.  I feel like I look at the Pixel Art community more and more because at least they are developing new trends and you can find inspiring new art more easily.  I really thought that by coming back, I'd see a resurgence in dolling, being that pixel art and pixel art games are so huge right now.

Ayo it's Nicole. I'm still alive and kicking. I recently lost my job. I've been laid off after working there for 8 years. So, I've finally left the soul killer. Maybe I can be more active and do some arts again. I dunno. We will see.
