No really, go for it.

Get known on the internet and on DA for your work under your sn. Take commissions, post art, write stories, get followers.... then change your name and lose some of that work.

I can understand some people might want a different name if they are switching styles (like someone named Furry_Lover_Boobies who is trying to switch to something more professional), but 80% of all the changes I have seen have been nothing but stupid. Some users who have no presence, like pure commentators with no following, are changing too but that is a little more minimal. It's the artists, esp. commission takers, that I find shocking.

People are changing their names to something that doesn't resemble their old sn, their new style, or is even readable by a mile. You gotta try and score with at least one of those things and hardly anyone is doing so. Good lord, I've even seen some comments of people un-watching artists over this. Almost as weird of a decision as the people that randomly throw their entire gallery in storage because they have a bad week.

Come on guys, think a little more.

I'm a current College student working in 3D modeling who enjoys everything DA and supports any artists he can.

Let me make this clear, I currently post NO art to DA. None. I may start uploading my work to DA for comments/suggestions/tips, but it simply isn't at a good enough level yet for me to consider doing that. Perhaps in the future I will start posting here online or make my own site.

I also think the best thing to...
Wait a minute... what is this, a dating ad?

I +watched because you have some super cute characters that I addooreeeee.

But, I am also a major concept fan of environments. No way I could ignore the awesome stuff you have been posting. I had to do a double take when I saw the name under the artwork! Love it, looking forward to your future work.
