i'm silvie or lux, call me whichever one you like better. i've joined this site in my tireless search for a deviantart alternative, and i'm not sure if i'm gonna stay or not but i might as well say hi anyway while i'm here.
Pleasure to have you aboard, Lux! ^_^ I hope we can make it fun for you while you're here.
It is pretty quiet these days, but we've got some good people and a lot of potential, and I always love to see new folks coming in. I don't know if I've run into any place quite as Active as DA, so, good luck there. <.<
Name's Firiel - I'm kind of a mishmash of fantasy and scifi books and TV series for my fandom preferences.
What subject matter do you prefer? I don't immediately recognize your avi and sig, so I'm not sure if they're an OC or fanworks from an anime I haven't watched yet.
Also, if you're hunting for a hangout, have you investigated Fanart-Central? Their writing interface is buggy and some of the stuff on there lately's been political in ways which make me uncomfortable, but I've been on there for five years now and enjoyed it for the most part.
DA is the cesspit of art sites and you're better off going almost anywhere else. Fortunately, you chose the best art site online, at least in my opinion! PaperDemon is head and shoulders above the others.
Hope you do stay -- participate, be active, do art! It's a good thing.
