I didn't want to have to do this, because I'm a firm believer in NOT removing art that others may have enjoyed, but frankly deviantART's software seems to really suck at determining what's relevant and what isn't. This is clearly primarily a fan art account, and I am sick to death of being on my fan art deviations and seeing the sidebar recommending "more from this artist" including photos of me, shit I did for homework in sophomore year, and random stock.
What the fuck, deviantART? I have eleventy-billion pieces of fan art on this account, and I assure you that it's not a matter of my homework and snapshots getting more traffic. I've tried removing them from all galleries, I've tried moving them to scraps, and for some reason none of that works. So I'm going to have to delete them so that DA will actually start recommending relevant shit to people who stumble upon my fan art and, y'know, might be more interested in seeing more similar fan art than my dumb face and some nice Christmas lightbulbs.
Honestly, I doubt anyone cares, but I feel like I should say something since I've always been so avidly against the removal of old work. Oh well. This is why we can't have nice things (like integrity), deviantART.
