    Why I Am Leaving

    For a long time I have wanted to part ways with this site. It's gone downhill for me and ever since my first huge break which was probably two years long or more total. The site just hasn't been the same in a lot of ways. If it weren't for a sudden interest to make art again, I never would have came back. I still enjoy making skins and all sometimes, but that motivation has withered. Maybe it's just me growing up. I've used this site since 2015, I was 15 years old at the time right before sophomore year started for me. It was fun, I never did 'digital' art before this. I was jealous of so many skinners back then and I wanted to become them so badly. So, after a good amount of time I felt myself getting somewhere. I felt my peak was when I created "Carmine" and remade my "Jay" skin, though now I find places I could of done better. I felt like that was when I finally created my own style that I was proud of. When I came back it was like I completely forgot how to make skins at all, I didn't know how to shade like I used to or do colors, but it was quicker this time to advance to where I am now. But now, I've gotten to where I don't feel like I can 'improve' and feel proud. There is only a limit of what you can do to a skin, I went crazy with colors and tried all these interesting ways to shade to make a skin not limit me but now I think I've done the best I could. I want the skins I've posted lately to be an improvement or something crazy, but I don't feel I can do that now. I'm sure I could but I'm just not motivated anymore.

    Another thing I want to talk about is peoples likes, or things similar to it in general. I feel like this site has gone downhill really far since I joined. Maybe it's just me complaining but I feel like people have less interest in the actual artwork/posts/skins/etc. than they did before on PMC. I feel like people like things because they either like them, or because they want it in return (Diamond 4 Diamond.) I'm sure the majority of this site likes things out of interest but some do it for their own gain, or rather for that satisfactory feeling of receiving gratification. They won't do it for everybody but they do it to some users at the very least. I feel like I have seen more of this as time has gone on, or at least I have noticed it more. I think the "diamond sprees" or whatever they're called can be a nice gesture but at the same time, it looks like that user is asking you to do the same back, at least to me usually. But not in every case. Basically saying "Hey I did this for you, won't you do it for me?" or "Man, they spent time going through all my things, that's so nice of them, if I don't do it back I'll look like a jerk..." It's gotten to the point where I am very stingy with what I diamond, even if I really like it because I don't want others to think I'm doing this to them if I diamond a couple of their things within a short period. I will admit, when I got diamonds/favorites/comments I felt sooo good. PMC is like every other platform for most people, getting likes and views feels great, you feel cool, proud. I still have the feeling sometimes, but not so much anymore. When I see certain people like my stuff, I feel proud. But when I see people spamming everything I've ever done, I feel not so great. Maybe it's just my weird view but that makes me feel like they don't give one crap about me and only want something from me. PMC was made for people to view, love, critic, comment, etc. others works. PMC was created for people to show their interest in all the sites areas but it's become more of a show off their statistics for some.

    I joined a Discord server that I felt was fun and amazing a long time ago, maybe around the beginning of 2020, I made good friends. But, after a while I just didn't feel being there was good, not sure why. Maybe I didn't feel like I belonged anymore, who knows, that's how I feel about being on the site nowadays. I feel like I've outgrown my time on here, like I need to take my step to being an adult. I am not saying that anyone who is older on here should feel the same but I guess that is my view on myself. If you are happy and enjoying this site even if you are older than the general population then keep on having fun! But for me, I think it's time for me to focus on something else. I feel that I need to stop holding myself back by caring so much about things on the internet like drama or how much interaction I get on my posts. Who knows.

    There's a lot of reasons why I don't think I should continue on the site but these are the most prominent that come to mind.

    Okay then. I hope you enjoy life to the greatest, and that our paths might cross once again on this site, or another place. Just remember that there are always new things to be done if you search in the right place.
