Yeah I think the internet has become like that...People begging for subscribers instead of genuine friends...>3> I only post art stuff on my instagram and mostly only follow artists so it feels like an art website to me! XD
I know, I kinda hope for that too...;m; I feel like the era of type of art websites were are used to is over. That or I am so worried about the business aspect I don't really notice the friendship side...but for the most part everyone seems to be spread out...
Before it was like theO and/or deviantart plus maybe myspace and a video website and now it's every popular social media and anything you can get your hands on to stay up to date. It's kind of annoying actually...the internet was like a hang out place for me and now it just seems like a rushing stream of content...I dunno I am just ranting now...

I kinda like instagram, but since it's not really an art website I sometimes feel kinda weird posting art there;;; And the whole follower culture is really weird there, like people will follow you just so you check out their profile, then unfollow you two seconds later... and stuff... idk. orz
Hm, hm... I use picarto for art streaming, but I haven't really tried being active in the community (?) there... And yeah, it's really frustrating. ;0;/ I JUST WANNA CHILL, POST ART, LEAVE COMMENTS, AND MAKE FRIENDS....!! Hopefully another art website comes around sometime. ;o;9
Yeah tumblr is nice because it's so easy to post, but everyone is so... quiet... how do I make friends on that website...........
Aah, I see. thanks for the suggestion though, I'll check it out later! :o
And I'm the same about twitter... I don't have one, but the formatting is too confusing for me to understand, idk. ;-;7
Haha I'll let you know if I do! >:m

I FEEL YOU, ITS A STRUGGLE. like tumblr is cool sometimes but there's such a disconnect :/
I use Behance.net as a sort of portfolio site, but unless you get super famous it's really hard to gather fans :( UGH SOCIAL NETWORKING
Some artists do well on twitter too, but I have no idea what i'm doing there half the time
so yeah I'm not much help IF YOU FIND SOMETHINGLET ME KNOW :')

I was gonna say instagram but yeah...that explains itself...XD
I dunno about art communities, but some people use twitch like they do live streaming for art...so maybe that's an option? I dun really know...I have been smacked with the same dealio...I feel like the popular sites now are so much harder to make friends with online...like you gotta be more aggressive or something I dunno..O.o;
It's not as easy as just leaving a comment, like everyone else, onto a pic, you gotta reblog, share, display it on your profile...;m;
