When I created this group in early 2010, I had hoped to create a community Deviantart members who appreciated a beautiful belly, in whatever form it took. It's a concept I had always wanted to see realized, since I was first exposed to the earliest belly 'hubs' like Stuffed Online, Project P, Vor-Com and PG-13.
It's been a fantastic three years, with literally thousands of fantastic submissions. I would never have thought that the group would find the success it has had. We now have 2.6k watchers who tune in for belly artwork of all kinds. It's partly the groups success that had encouraged me to keep maintaining it over the years.
Though not all artists, content and artwork trends have been met with universal approval, I'm proud that this community gives members the opportunity to discover and discuss them.
However, now time has past and I've become older, it's clear that this community is not something I should be investing myself in as deeply as I used to. Though I'll no longer be a core part of this group, I believe the concept of the group will live on. Over the past month, I've been contacting other belly group admins for their help.
I'll be working with him at the very least for the next few months, to ensure this transition is as smooth as possible!
Thanks for those who have stuck by this group. I hope this means bigger things for us in the future!
