Everything has moved to tumblr. The yuugiou fandom is dead. Deviantart is dead. Strange thought. All that I have left now is nostalgia.

If there are any ygo fans that are still around here and that don't follow me on tumblr, I updated scar tissue after like 3 years lol.

Actually, tumblr is dead.

If you're trying to keep ahead of the curve, don't even start. The curve is way, way ahead of anything you know, and most of what you can conceive. Remember, if people like you and me are using the technology, it's already dead. The newest stuff can only be found among those creating it, before it is monetized and ruined.

Life in the fast lane!

Man, I remember first starting out in the YGO fandom, that was all I edited to for like, nearly two years :'D  It was a consistent fandom.  Had its ups and downs, but regularly updated.  Naoadays, it seems pretty hard to keep people interested, and not see the same things - be it ships, scenes, etc. - over and over again.  Tho to be fair, that happened a lot back in the day, too... I remember when every other thing was Puzzleshipping...

I think half of it is just, people haven't watched it in years.  Whenever I go to read fanfics these days, it's basically head-canons based off head-canons based off head-canons.  Everything's watered down and I often find myself going "Kay, I know you got that outta a doujinshi..."

Same can be said about AMVs, I don't think I've seen a truly unique YGO mep in a long time - save for like, a crack-shipping mep, but even then, the idea isn't anything new (says the peep with a crack-ship icon *ahem*).  They come along once in a while, but it kinda feels like creativity is dead since again, peeps haven't really watched it in years.  Also, most YGO studios started off 2-3 years ago, when the fandom was pretty hoppin', and nao it just seems like no one wants to quit, they just wanna stick around cuz it's what they started off with

I feel like commenting in general has kinda died down, too... seems like that on all my accounts, anyway - Youtube, DA, FF.net... tumblr can be a decent place for like, discussing head-canons and analyzing screenshots.  I've had mixed experiences with both, since the site is infamous for having assholes, and trust me it does, but it's kinda nice to be able to rant about a head-canon outside of a Youtube description

I have read Scar Tissue, btw (I've read most of your fics, actually ummmmm XD) and I did really enjoy your updated chapters :'D  I admire you for going back to it after so long lol

I'M HERE.

I was thinking of posting art here again, I've mostly just started drawing on tegaki more. (IF YOU WANT TO TEGAKIE RP WITH ME, I'M MALIK AND I ONLY HAS A SETO AND MOKUBA... ;_; SO I'D LIKE... SOME ONE ELSE. (we may have a jou idk) )

I feel the nostalgia thing, but hopefully I can get people back on tegakie ;_; those were the last fun times i had with the fandom. I've also been wanting to start a rp thing again, but most of my friends from the fandom aren't my friends anymore, or are into other things.... >.>; it's pretty sad. 

And yeh updates. <3

there is million art work up load in DA every month. (it not every day)

I will not call that death by my point of view.

(is more like a large city , that you can find a place that have people more then road to walk ....or place that no single soul to see in sight)

(all of this is change all the time.....nature of life)

Ugh. I told myself that I would never invest my time into creating a tumblr, but I guess at this point I am obligated to...
I spend most of my time on FF.net these days, but reviewers are becoming more and more scarce as well. Maybe it's because I write Bronzeshipping... everyone is a Thiefshipper nowadays...
Eh, I don't think the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom is dead necessarily, I think it has just changed.  Everyone seems to be completely invested in the Abridged Series. I swear, if I hear the words 'leather pants' or 'Melvin' one more fucking time, I'm going to choke a bitch.
I think the fandom is declining, most definitely. That's why we need talented artists/writers like you to keep this beautiful fandom from falling into a shit hole. 
Keep on keepin' on! :)

You shouldn't make one. Tumblr changes people for the worst. All the people who've gotten ones are now pretty consistently horrible people. Tumblr is actually a really bad community..

Oh, you write bronzeshipping?

Thank christ I'm not the only one who hates ygotas. It's seriously cancer. I really, really hate ygotas so much...

Honestly, I still haven't read Scar Tissue... But I've felt like the only person into Yu-Gi-Oh! for some time now till a few people started to make a come back, like you.
Believe me, I'm thrilled to see you back even if I don't comment on things. I still ogle your drawn art and grin in my seat.
As for DA, that too kind of feels like it had been abandoned. Maybe people will come back to it later, I have no idea.

Well I started it in 2008, so my writing has improved a fucking ton since then... But I just don't like having things unfinished.

I'm really surprised you're still around. You're one of the oldest ygo friends/fans that I've known and you're still kicking when everyone else has left. Who else has come back? Yuugiou is just so memorable, they'll be back in time.

That's a good quality to have considering so many people just stop part of the way into a project and never get back to it. I'm included in that sad grouping unfortunately.

Quite a few people are surprised while some have even mocked me for sticking around but that's really their loss.
:iconkitsunekittis: is making Akefia art again now that she is back from her military duties. :iconmeeps: is still doing some Yu-Gi-Oh! stuff but those two are the only somewhat active others that I have seen around.

The YGO fandom isn't dead, it's just more spaced out. And I still use DA, I just haven't posed anything in a few weeks because of lack of ideas and motivation and my own personal internet.

People also just don't talk to each other that much on tumblr so maybe that's another reason why it seems dead.

I'm a Yu-Gi-Oh fan and I don't use tumblr.
I have other accounts in other sites but I don't use them either,
at least not as much as I use DeviantArt.
But the sad truth is that the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom is dying.
It's not dead yet but it's dying.

It's not as big because there are many new animes and
many people are finding new fandoms every day and sadly
are leaving their old ones. I remember the time before Naruto became
so popular everyone used to love Yu-Gi-Oh and suddenly like in a week
lots of people forgot it because of Naruto.
I like to keep track of everything I
like so my passion for Yu-Gi-Oh and all my other favorite anime and manga
will never die just because I've
begun watching something new. ^^
I'm really glad you like that fanart btw ^^
It's my best one yet in my opinion actually.
If it wasn't for your story I may have never made that.

dA isn't dead and as much as I like tumblr it's a really shitty place for actually getting constructive comments on your art :(

I love your ygo art and I don't think I follow you, so... /does so
Reply
:iconyao-ling:
Yao-Ling Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013
Not even just constructive, either. But anything at all. Tumblr's community is very against commenting on art because it makes the reblog look very cluttered. So when they comment on something, if they even say anything at all, they hide it in the tags. So I have to go through every single note and read their tags to see if they even said anything. And there is never any constructive comments. So yes, it's pretty frustrating.

(y-you didn't though haha (not that i'm telling you to))

infinipede Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A lot of it also has to do with the fear of commenting, because adding comments to things is taboo or looked down upon in most circles and will sometimes get you met with a snarky response :T. And I do the same thing with tags (though I guess it's good I'm not a popular or good artist, I only get a couple reblogs to go through haha.)

There really are very few places to get good concrit now, especially for people who aren't super high (school?) level artists. I find the pixelart community to be good in that regard but that's mostly for people who do pixel art...

Yao-Ling Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013
Yeah, people will honestly get bitched at if they comment on a post. Which is... so very funny, since tumblr is an open source blogging website where you're supposed to comment on things. Otherwise it wouldn't give you that option.
