Welcome to...
I'm open for commissions.


Please contact me via note
Hi everyone,

most of you who've been a watcher of mine for the last of years know that I haven't been very active here on dA for quite a long time. It's only recently that I've taken up creating art again and I find that very pleasing although I don't have much time due to my day job.

But I have gained some more insight into dA now that I'm back in the art realm again: I find that dA has changed a lot (well, at least the photomanipulation community has ;)) since I've uploaded my last artwork. Browsing the photomanipulation gallery, you can mostly see stuff done by professionals. There are hardly any hobbyists anymore. I don't know why. Maybe it's because they've given up knowing they'll never stand a chance among those pros or maybe it's because they've moved onto doing something else (their day jobs probably?!). Sadly some that I was good friends with have left :(.
Another thing that is closely linked with my above point is that they are not only professionals, but they are just a small group of elite artists. I'm not going to name any of them, but I'm sure you know who they are. This is makes the photomanipulation gallery very one-dimensional, also because everyone else tries to imitate their style.

What do you think? Do hobbyists still stand a chance here on dA (it's just the the photomanipulation community I'm talking about, mind you)?

Take care and have a great time

- Simone
