I have had several deviations deleted by the DA admins over the last few years. This is not an evil conspiracy, they are just doing their jobs, which is good. Everyone needs work and everyone needs to keep an open mind to new possibilities. This includes me.
The new possibility that I will be pursuing is at Art Of Darkness [link] . It seems some of my art is not welcome on DA, but I have lots of DA friends that want to see this art AND lots of Volunteers that want to participate in it. I joined Art Of Darkness about two years ago, but haven't done much with it. That is changing. I will still post art to DA, but if I think there is a chance it will get deleted I will post it to my AoD account instead. When this happens I will post a link on DA. To see my work on AoD you will have to join the site also. Below is the link to my AoD page. I hope for you to see me there.
Update: I think you have to join before you can view anyone's page. Error 403 is an unauthorized access attempt.
