Or does deviantart just seem sort of non-community like nowadays? Not the site itself, but just how people generally interact with each other on here... I could be wrong- I haven't nearly been on as much as I used to; mostly because I don't have much time to myself anymore where I can rock my own personal art.

It's been ages since I've been consistently involved (life gets in the way), and I don't have a good handle on what the state of play is around here anymore, but it does seem like a lot of the old crew has moved on...

Been feeling lately like I want to fight to find time to get back into producing stuff and sharing it...

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of good DevArt apps for smart devices; I reckon a messenger app for forums/notes in DA that hit you with a notification for new communications might keep people a bit more involved?

Yeah, I mean it looks like they're 'trying' to follow more of a social media vibe with the new layout, but like you said, there's not much for this site in the ways of mobile, so it's severely behind.

I've found some of the original gangsters either on instagram or even facebook, but yeah, it definitely feels like the majority of the people I were interested in have jumped ship. Ah, well...

That's a shame, I haven't really used the site for about a year and have only just started trying to get back into it so I can't complain too much, but when I joined I would get little tips and learn things from new people with most of the illustrations I uploaded. But it eventually did seem to evolve into only my fan art would get a look in and not so many people caring about the work if it wasn't from a recognizable franchise. There are also a lot more art sites out there now and more options, so the people finding better feedback from elsewhere are probably sticking with those sites now.

Yeah I feel you on that. But I more agree with KreepingSpawn, DA is what I make it and I am ONLY concerned with peeps I watch and or Watch me yo

I think DA is what we make of it.  I avoid the front page, and deal mostly with those I watch, or who watch me.
And I've had a largely positive experience for the last 9 years.

Yeah... I think just a lot of the people I really interacted a lot with have either bounced or just straight disappeared, which sucks. I still catch some of their work in other places, though.

Yeah, the hardest part is the folks who have vanished over the years.  :(
Sometimes they turn up again!  ;)

dA is more or less an artistic facebook. Hot girls, and what's popular are all anyone wants. Sadly. No one is getting tips on details and small shit, just giant unesseccary critiques or NOTHING at all. Plus, cats seem to be collabong less. I think most of it is generation based. Older cats are doing bigger and better things or family shit. And new heads have no direction. IMO.

True. It's just old man Dion shaking his cane at the young'uns.
