Personally i don't like them in Pixiv.
It difficults browsing japanese content, especially touhou content wich is mostly made by japanese.
i also don't like translated tags, some are not really accuarate in the translation.
Westerners use almost exclusively translated tags

Use groups, anon. There are countless groups organized into different categories (fandom, fantasy, sci fi, traditional art, digital art, etc.) where you can submit your art to and it will be featured on the top of these groups until if and when enough other artists submit and push your art further down the groups' galleries.

There can be a multitude of different groups for one genre alone. Unlike artstation, which is impossible to make it on since you have to already have a following to get noticed there, DA is much more newb friendly and it's a lot easier to get noticed even if you have no followers and no friends to help shill you.

Modern social media websites suck for artists to use but are what is preferred nowadays because Instagram and Twitter have the biggest audiences. You can't make as much money only posting your art on a website only other creatives will use.

I miss devianart and groups. It was easier for your art to get more attention when you submitted it to a group. It was better then using shitty hashtags

> attention whore westerners with shitty art

The shitton of Japanese artists on pixiv with shitty art makes up for it. It's just hard to see because pixiv only recommends the Japanese artists with the nicest art

>> No.5082602

There is no legitimately good general art sharing platform which also encourages con/crit. ArtStation and the like are good for getting eyes on your portfolio, but awful if you want criticism.

PIXIV is good for building an audience depending on your """style""" but it's also not good for getting crits. Twitter/IG/other social media sites are similar in that you can gain an audience, but interaction is seriously limited.

It feels like since the slow death of DeviantART, there isn't any site which is truly feels the niche of being good for conversation about art, good for receiving criticism, and good for growing an audience all at the same time. The only thing similar still running would be probably FurAffinity but that's for a very specific subject.

Hell, there's hardly any art forums these days either where one can go to receive honest feedback. Though forums always had the drawback of being great for feedback, awful for building an audience.

I miss the 2003 - 2013 sweet spot before the rise of invasive social media, and before the collapse of sites like dA and forums.

I use Pixiv, and despite having zero knowledge in japanese, I've had a really fun time. I even got to interact with new artists on twitter more often, and got a few commissions out of it.

I think you just have to use to correct tagging in japanese and not act like a cringelord. I mention in my profile that I'm not a jap, too. It isn't too hard to get followers as opposed to DA/Twitter.

Out of all the platforms I've ever used, this one is probably the best, if you're willing to put time into learning the tags.

They are pretty welcoming from my experience. I didn't want to upload there for long for that same reason. But you should do it. It's nice when you use the right hashtags. I'm not saying you will get popular but you can post there. I think it is kinda comfy. It's not twitter where your art is forgotten 10 minutes after you post it. Like Tumblr back when it was good you can find work made years ago. What you do somehow never dies. Also, I didn't expect that but a lot of non Japanese people are on the website. Not as artist but they will be there to follow you.

What happened to Deviantart during this year that raped my reach?
I distinctly it asking me "What is your art" and remember being able to select stuff like: "Digital Art" > "Manga inspired" and shit like that while uploading and I'd get decent engagement but I tried uploading 2 days ago and all it let me do now was a brief image description, a name and tags.
I assumed maybe they'd removed the grouping or whatever the fuck in favor of doubling down on the tags so I tried to add stuff similiar to that but I got like 1/10th of the engagement I had early this year and exactly 0 engagement after a day had passed when my shit used to get added to favorites real weeks after I uploaded, so obviously it's no longer showing up in some sort of feed for those removed sections or whatever anymore, helP??

Eclipse has been one fuckup to another. I like the overall aesthetic of it, but functionally it just keeps getting worse. Recently they changed the notification widget, where hovering over it now no longer displays most recent notifications - you have to click it and navigate through everything to know what happened.

The sidebar was one good change, though. I don't know where they're going with eclipse, or what they're trying to do. My guess is they're trying to make it into the same as other social media, purposely trying to obscure smaller/newer accounts in favor of propagating larger ones, whereas before it literally didn't matter how small or big you were, which was one thing that made it stand out from shitholes like twitter.
