💫 ⋆ ✨ I am mostly found on Tapastic! ✨ ⋆ 💫

I'm the author of the sci-fantasy webcomic Singmire Haze, it's got elves, changelings, mushrooms and much more to discover as you read!


You might have noticed that dA has a new logo, and you may already know that it also happen to be extremely similar to this logo:

Well, that's too bad, and also what happens when one uses glyphs to make a logo. The idea was creative enough for just anyone to have it I suppose. But if it was just that! The new logo means nothing when we see it though it's not supposed to be entirely abstract. This middle ground is a failure. You're supposed to understand what a symbol means when you see it. Here it's just a puzzling shape and an aggressive acid green color and, personally, it makes me think of what I could see on a medicine package. This flashy color derails the attention from the art displayed on the site because it just stands out way too much. It's even standing out among other favicons in the browser's thumbnails.

I don't just dislike the new logo, I hate it. I really hate it. I don't understand why it even needed to be changed.
The old one was so much better, It was dA, it was friendly, nice, yet professional-looking, the kind of logo everybody could identify with: amateurs, hobbyists, pros, beginners alike. We didn't need a whole article to understand what it meant.

The new font is nice, but more distant too. It's trendy, fashion and pro, but a bit elitist too, "higher than thou". It looks good with fine art in a magazine maybe, but I think it would look a bit ridiculous with something more beginner level – something that didn't clash before.

I'm not against change for the sake of being against change, I dislike this change because I don't feel this logo relates to the community I've been part of for almost 9 years. I don't think everybody here is about Bleed and Breed Art. The staff wish we would, but it's not who we all are. We enjoy art, but if it was the sole thing in our life, then wouldn't we be a community of pros, exclusively? I see folks here who are hobbyists, they enjoy what they do, they don't necessarily want to dedicate all their free-time to creativity, it's a past-time for them and it's really fine. They're not bleeding art, they're just drawing without necessarily wanting to express something deep from their guts. That's why I think "Where Arts Meets Application" was so much more appropriate. It gave a place to the spiritual artists as much as to the technical artists. But Bleed and Breed Art is so pompous, as if we were all fucking geniuses etc... dA heck!?
Please, be humble! Humble is what we are.
Deviantart logo 50 by Izz-noxfox

To protest against the new logo, I've decided to change my avatar to the old one, it soothes me to see it in the toolbar. But on a second thought, what if we were all doing it? What if we turned this into a meme, to show our love to the old logo?
See :iconyoriden: has customized it so it's more personal. What about doing this altogether as a festive protest and celebration of who WE really are? By changing the logo, the staff doesn't just changes the image of dA, they change the image of the community. They try to replace us by something more elitist, but do you really want to be an elite? Elite is a synonyme of asshole, because elitist persons shit on a whole part of society, butts are what they are and we're not butts >:c

Hey there! I see Grandia and Metal Gear Solid in your favourite games! <.<

Btw great art! How are you doing?!
Izz-noxfox Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Those games were a huge influence to me, especially the concept arts, so they'll always hold a special place in my heart^^ (though I sadly couldn't keep up with the latest games of the MGS series due to not having PS3, PS4, PS5 or whatnot...^^;)

As for how I'm doing, I'm not sure if you mean if I'm fine (which I am, mostly, I suppose, anxiety set aside) or what tools I'm using, which is then mostly my computer and my brain^^

That's fine! I also don't have the newest systems and I only played MGS4 last year at my friend's. The game is great though, especially the reminiscneces. You can watch a playthrough, it is fun to do sometimes if the people are nice - on Twotch or Youtube. Do you like it usually, watching someone play? ^^

Haha I mean how you are feeling, you know, the basics of starting a polite talk. x) Anyways anxiety? You mean standart condition or did something trigger that?

I've watched a few letsplay's but most of the time I really don't have the time because the only other thing I can do while watching is eating.

I probably have an anxiety disorder of some sort. It's manageable most time because I've always been used to being anxious and stressed since early childhood, but when things start to add up it can get to crippling levelsthat leave me unable to do most things I need/want to do. I've only recently learned that I have alexithymia, which is emotional blindness, and makes it very hard to accurately identify emotions. It's a bit like knowing that colors exist but being able to see in grayscale only.
