Leaving dA for Greener Pastures by Raps555
Leaving dA for Greener Pastures
Hi all,

I regrettably have to inform you that I will be leaving dA from today onwards.  But fear not - I have a lot of other sites which you can find me on, so skip to the end if you want to see those.  First off, if you've been with me for a week, a year, or all 4 years that I've been active here, I want to thank you for your support.  DA was the first place I had to express my creativity to a larger audience, and was a great jumping-off point for me. 

I'm leaving for a couple reasons: 1) I've outgrown dA's purpose.  My focus in art has shifted to graphic design and photography/photomanipulation, and I find dA's image quality and layout aren't really great for either of these. 2) I've grown out of the community.  While I do have a few friends here and have had a lot of good conversations with good people, I find the community in general hasn't kept pace with my personality or social patterns, and I've had trouble being engaged here lately.  I do hope those of you who I'm friends with here will find me on other sites! 3) I've become much more professional about my hobby, and dA isn't the really the right forum for that in my field(s). 4) DA's upload method and image management systems became a burden to me with so many images to upload in tandem.  I found myself dreading uploading to dA because it took so long. 5) I've migrated away from the Raps555 handle, towards my new professional business name, chriselliottart. DA isn't really a great professional reference for me, and certainly isn't without my business name attached.

And a final note, I WILL NOT be shutting this profile down, at least not yet.  It will remain up, and I'll check it every now and then to clean out messages, but I won't be an active member in any sense of the word. If you've read all of this, I want to thank you for your support and appreciation, and I hope to see you on some other sites!



Below is a (mostly) complete list of the places you can find me elsewhere on the internet.  If you've gotten this far and are looking for how to find me, I really want to say thanks!

Flickr - The best place to find me for Legos and general photography - this site currently has and will continue to have the most amount of content of any of my profiles.

chriselliottart.com - My personal website.  Please note I am in the process of refurbishing this, and the new version won't be live until early September.  I am mostly finished with the updates, but I have a few more things to do.  Please disregard anything you see there prior to the first or second week of Sept.  I will also be adding an RSS reader later on, so if you're into those I've got you covered, just sit tight!  The new design is a very powerful site with a lot of capabilities, so I hope that you'll find it helpful.

The following are newer accounts and have very limited content so far, but will be updated in tandem as I have new work; they're all equally good for seeing my new work if you're already a member.  If you're looking for older stuff, Flickr is the place to go.
Facebook - This is my professional page, not my personal account, so you can keep up with my work here even if it is Facebook.

Tumblr - Please note that for my Tumblr, while it never contains any graphic or lewd material, some of the jokes I reblog may not be safe for work.

Also, the picture isn't mine, and I claim no rights to it.  I just want to make you happy with a picture of a baby Pudu.

Are you on Reddit? If so, /r/lego has been posting a few little lego cars, and I think that your builds are some of the best for this scale. I think they'd love to see your work as well.
