I'm torn and in a dilemma, maybe you guys can help me.
For many years, I've been an anime styled artist. I still like anime, don't get me wrong, but I've acquired a taste for fantasy/sci fi art and illustration. Most artists online like to get some feedback on their stuff. I've had good luck with Deviantart but people there like me for my Anime type drawings and aren't really receptive to me branching out or trying things that are more realistic. Not only that, but recently I had a forum thread locked when I posted a review of CS5 in the Software section of the forum because I didn't "encourage conversation". Needless to say, its left a bad taste in my mouth. I come here, and its a fantastic site and looks helpful, with great, professional people. However, I get very little if any response to stuff I post and usually zero responses if it looks slightly Japanese.
Its like the anime stink has followed me and its repulsive to many here. Sometimes I like to do both styles though, I'm not ready to swear off the art that actually has me a small following. Should I just not post anime related things here at all? Is there a site better suited to me?
Any advice or suggestions for me are much appreciated.
