Decline in art submissions - July 28th, 2018

I’ve noticed a decline in people posting artwork to Deviantart, Facebook and Artstation. Maybe the summer months are too warm this year, or perhaps people have moved on, or given up. Some might have had families or changed career paths. I really don’t know. It’s a real shame to see people stopping with their art., Maybe the “industry” in art has lost its appeal, I really don’t know.

Some of my favourite artists haven’t posted since 2014 or even earlier, and that to me indicates they have moved on from art, which is really disappointing.

Here are a few screenshots of really talented artists who have seemingly given in. I can’t find evidence of their continuation on either their own personal sites or any updated progress.

Am I missing a trend ? Do they now work via a different media outlet? I really don’t know.  o/
