Art quality of Deviantart is comparable to that of Pixiv IF you don't just look for anime drawings.

It's not that. /jp/ hates DA because it's full of ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL type of people.

Pixiv probably has less of those, and even if they do, Anonymous can't read it to be annoyed by it.

It does have plenty of good artists who aren't either, but they are buried under an ocean of drama.

like most communities, the worse of them is used to judge the rest of them, sort of like how we all know youtube comments are fucking retarded.

You can get some good art from deviant art, some mediocre art and some down right painful art. It depends on the search parameters you use and your tolerance. I found a while ago that just searching for Touhou would get you a so/so level of art quality, some good, some bad, some terrible, but not as bad as some searches.

If you want to hurt your brain, search for your favourite game/character and add the word 'sonic' to the search.

Yeah it does. They just have to put it behind some "mature content" bullshit.

No. It did in the beginning, then they said no after it became flooded with furry porn.

>> No.4809747

And so nothing changed...

>> No.4809750


I see hardcore stuff there all the time. The thing is that you need an account to view mature content.

>> No.4809748

No, believe it or not, the "Mature content" tag is for images that are violent, for example. Porn is not allowed on DA, only "tasteful nudity".

>> No.4809757

Take a look at some of the stuff on there and tell me it isn't porn. Even if its not explicitly allowed, it appears not to be enforced.

>> No.4809763


Their "porn" is for pansies.

>> No.4809778

They just haven't been reported.

What is Mature Content?
Be aware that deviantART absolutely prohibits content which is deemed to be pornographic in content; the Mature Content tagging system DOES NOT exist to allow you to submit such content.

All deviations containing nudity, excessive violence, blood, gore, or other potentially upsetting or offensive material should be marked as Mature Content. Controversial pieces revolving around religion, political opinions and other similar sensitive subject matters should also be considered candidates to be tagged as Mature Content.

The deviantART administration reserves the right to assign the Mature Content tag to any submission which lacks it but is judged to require it.

>> No.4809785

I can't fap to that

>> No.4809792


>Do you allow images depicting bodily wastes or fluids?
>The deviantART staff reserves the right to remove any image which depicts feces, urine, vomit, or any other bodily waste or byproduct without warning. Such images may be considered unacceptable for submission under any circumstances.

lol you can't draw characters with a runny nose or drooling

They don't care about that. This is so they can delete all of the furry shit fetish garbage that is uploaded.

>> No.4809819

I just read that. This pissed me off a lot:

>Also be aware that we prohibit providing any outside link to another website which provides access to the material described above.

I have an account there and only post the SFW pictures on it, but I provide a link to my site which has all my art, and they don't allow this?

Fucking idiots. I wish there was a good alternative besides Pixiv.

>> No.4809828

Then they shouldn't put it in their rules.

The site is British. This kind of "these are the rules but we enforce them in the way that we interpret them" behaviour is very much like them, it seems the entire country thinks like that. I hate Britain more and more with each fucking day.

What the hell? Sexual intercourse is not by definition pornography. And this is supposed to be an art site?

Which is why you use the site for exposure to get people to visit your REAL website, employers will not be impressed if you're so uncreative you can't even make your own damn site.

>> No.4809872

DA's good art:shit ratio is awfully unbalanced to the latter. Sure, you can find good stuff there, but having to dig through all that shit AND that shitty community isn't worth it. For me, at least.

Pixiv, for example, is better because we can't understand them and comments and stuff are a bit harder to find. Plus, there's more art than blogging and retarded people, even though a good part of that art sucks.

>> No.4809875

That's not what you said, you said "Don't use DA, use your own site".

That pretty much goes without saying. But a lot of professional artists end up using both, since Deviantart is a social network afterall.

It's like telling a professional musician to get out of Myspace. Why would they do that?
