Pretty cool site. Try it.
My daily haunt. I love the community here. This is a wonderful place to share my art freely and with minimal interference. Constructive criticism and nice people make this a wonderful place to share and enjoy art.
The ultimate site for those who want to share their art, whatever form that is. It is really a niche but I hope this niche market will not find another site to go to and Deviantart should now look for a way to strengthen their UX and other things to keep up with the modern times.
It's what I call the creative outlet for the photographers, artists, graphic designers and the ones with active creative imagination. It just inspires you in so many way by seeing all that creativity! just wish their navigation gets a little improved.
Deviantart is a place for people to upload and share their art, back in the day, there were many talented artists here, and that's still true. HOWEVER, the site has grown in members and the very talented ones are buried under the (not to be cruel) amateur 'artists'. I say amateur because, in all honesty, some of the art on the site is the same quality of my 6 year old niece.
Most art these days is Anime style, Japanese Cartoon for those unaware of what that is, and is becoming annoying to see Naruto every time I refresh the page. There is also a large amount of Cosplaying, dressing up like said characters from the Anime. While this is fine sometimes, as some people have really elaborate costumes, but some don't.
There are large amounts of nude photographs as well, which would be fine if they were artistic, but they aren't. They're just self portraits, stuff you expect to see on Myspace whores trying to get attention.
Over the years the site has begun going down hill, and if it will ever recover, I do not know.
Great designs there. Talented crowd. Love it!
I have a friend who got a job by posting his artwork online and now he works with some of the best creative minds in the industry.
This is one of the best hubs for unique artwork of all kinds on the internet itself. I've been a member for years, but find myself browsing much more than creating. The interface is relatively easy to use, and they offer premium memberships with extra features. It's still awesome using it free though.
I have used Deviantart.com for quite some time now. I recently discovered a new way to use the site, and that is to browse through other portfolios that offer figure modeling. There are quite a few that offer many different poses and photos that you are allowed to use for your own art. There are so many things you can do using the community, and that is one of the things I've always loved about DA.
Cool site. You can see view all kinds of art, photography, etc. The greatest feature is that it's a great place to find photoshop actions, and plugins. Users upload them regularly, and they are pretty useful. Any artist and or art fan should visit this site at least once, it's a very trustful site, and I have been using it for 8+ years.
Great resource for images of all types. At this site there is: Digital Art, Traditional Art, Photography, Artisan Crafts, Literature, Film & Animation, Flash, Designs & Interfaces, Customization, Cartoons & Comics, Manga & Anime, Anthro, Fan Art, Resources & Stock Images, Community Projects, Contests, deviantWEAR Design Battles, Journals, and a few other odds and ends. It is a vast collection of digital material and a useful resource for any project you might have going on.
I have not even begun to scratch the surface of what this site has to offer.
Advertisements are unobtrusive and navigation is simple. Great site!
REASONS TO USE:
 Vast collection of digital material
 Simple site navigation and free membership
 Unobtrusive ads
REASON TO LOSE:
Great site, although very cumbersome to navigate, it is a good site to browse through photos and other art to be inspired
Cool Graphics and some unusual and unique photographs and techniques. Good source of inspiration and admiring beauty and creativity of artists. If you have not been to this website you are missing something graphical......
I love DA. I check it every day. I post my poems there and wouldn't have it any other way.
Just look for foznots!!!
I love this site! It's really inspiring to see very good artists on the web. I appreciate everything they do from drawings to photography. I personally love the way some artists here create digital portraits. Just when I thought that drawing or painting in canvass was difficult, they could do this on a computer now. Really amazing!
I also like browsing on different caricatures they made. I thought of joining but I'm a little embarrassed of what I will post there. :) Great site!
There is some amazing art here and definitely worth a look!
DeviantArt is full of creative talent.
I love this site. It helps me to display all my artwork. I even had some custom photography orders via this site. The entire community is excellent as well 10/10 one of my main bookmarks on my browser!
Oh, dA,dA,dA...where do I start? I love art and designs. And Deviantart, several years ago, was such a GREAT site for professionals and art enthusiasts. It has an open gallery for everyone to see. They have prints, forum, members can give comments and *fave* the artwork.Some of the works displayed were AMAZING. But it's going downhill lately. They have a silly new layout that takes a little time for members to adapt, and I don't know why for the last couple of years, it seems like dA is infested with Anime Fantards that did nothing but the low quality 'Fan-Art'. Seriously..do we have to see 'naruto' or 'bleach' character everytime we tried to enjoy some quality artworks? No, I don't mean to bash Anime. Anime art is fine, but to be so un-original and to produce nothing but Fan-Arts is an Insult to the supposedly 'Art' website. But then again, it's a community website. Another downside is the lack of art theft control. I'm still a member and I use watermarks and no download policy to protect my artworks. For aspiring artist, dA is a great place to build your portfolio, but remember to give your art some protection. Overall, dA could be a much better site, but still decent enough for young & budding artists.
I'm a 6 year member & user of this site! I've made many friends on this website, and even met my fiance. How's that for neat? The layout has changed over the years, from when I first became a member, some were for the better, some were akward to navigate. There was also a bit of legal drama, as some may remember, but it didn't keep people from enjoying a community of artists and art lovers. I've not logged on in a month, but I know for a time, there were people complaining of viruses and other nasties, trying to sneak onto people's computers, as they browsed or used the site. I actually kept away from the site for a while, after repeated attacks that would occur when I was on the site. I'm hoping this has been cleared up, so people aren't afraid to post their art, or appreciate other's. Subscriptions are available on the site, that permit more customization of your ''home page'' on the site, and addition & use of widgets. You do not need to subcribe to become a site user, and it should not truly impede your ability to enjoy the site, or the art.
I checked this site out after reading the reviews of others on sitejabber. Some very neat and well done photography and drawings. I am not a huge art fan but still enjoyed flipping through the photos. There are some talented people out there! The site seems well put together, very cool site to check out some well done images
