deviantART Sucks
United Kingdom
Alright. I won't lie to you, what would be the point? I hate deviantART. Why?
  1. From the Terms of Service: "For the sole purpose of enabling us to make your Content available through the Service, you grant to deviantART a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, re-format, store, prepare derivative works based on, and publicly display and perform Your Content. Please note that when you upload Content, you allow third parties to copy, distribute and display your Content." This basically means they can do whatever the hell they want with your work the moment you submit it.
  2. The design. Oh god the design. deviantART v5: Horrible green colours, too many round corners and gradients, out of place icons and lots of CSS to load.
  3. The community sucks. That's right, the community. Most of dA is comprised of idiots who think their scribblings are brilliant, furry hentai and yaoi. Also, :+fav: :+favlove: galore. Apparently it's necessary to tell someone that they added you. They DID click the link, I'm sure they already know. Also, a better thanks would be to keep making new art since they obviously like your crap.
  4. Let's not forget the small matter of firing the co-founder...

So. deviantART sucks. This account will remain anonymous - it's to spread a word, it isn't meant to be a person. I'll use it to leave comments on a few people's dA journals, if I do, you know who I am.

I'll probably banned on this account soon after posting this. They can't stand people saying what they've already said themselves, and they ban for saying anything bad about deviantART. That's just another reason.

So long.


Before you say anything, yes, there is another way. Or at least, there will be.</cryptic hint>


If critiques are discouraged, what's the point of a comment box? "AWW SO CUTE KAWAII!!!! ^_____^^^"?…

I absolutely agree, the DA crowd is one of the most depressingly closed societies imaginable. These people will not so much as give you the time of day if you aren't on the front page constantly, which renders anything social meaningless. Recently I was part of a group forum RP, in the interest of maybe meeting some people, making some friends, and just to have some fun. Not only was I all but ignored from the moment I joined, when I was out for a week due to being violently ill, the entire group had left me behind without so much as a backwards glance or word of concern; they were so self-absorbed that no one even noticed when I left. There is simply no getting through to these people; I've spoken with drug-addicts who didn't have their heads as far in the clouds as these assholes.

I'd have to agree on everyone who posted here. DA has gone downhill..A-LOT. I remember when I was gone for half a year because of computer breaking and had to save money for replacement..and it seems that since the time I been gone.Everyone had forgotten about me, including my friends . Sometimes I wonder;Why even bother to keep posting here, its just a waste of time because they always go for the "main top artist" on the front page. Another is when you don't get anymore praise, kudos or appreciation on hours of effort you put into your work. People on DA.. need to appreciate other art,fan-fics,photography ,etc and need to get thier head  out of thier only to the high top artist or people who don't give an effort asses . Plan to find a more descent art-site to post art, ugh or maybe move to my tumblr page, hell seem to get a bit notice on  there than here 8D.Another problem with this is one of my friends who also had same issue, gave up on his art and started editing anime pictures instead and got more notice for it and praise which baffles me.

I agree with you this site is the worst thing in the world. There's bunch of assholes here and DA is not doing anything about it.

These days I simply see DA as storage space for my illustrations and as a backup in case my hard-drive goes to hell. 

I don't get much comments but then again it's nice I also don't put up with much bullshit either. There's a certain quiet serenity that comes along with being a small fish.

I'd say the only thing that annoys me is how fan-art will always trump original art. I'm not implying fan-art is bad per se and even I enjoy it on occasion. Having stated that, I'm simply not an illustrator who likes drawing someone else's pre-existing characters. Sure, I 'love" the X-men and "love" Adventure Time. You will just never see my gallery with Wolverine or Marceline in it. (Even though I adore those characters)

Do I blame unfairness for no views? Well I do know being a premium member comes with more perks. As to how that plays into "more attention,more views, & more feedback" I could not tell you. (I'm not a premium member) But while I'm happy with my illustrations I do not really consider myself "super good" either. If art was simply a competition to be "the best around" it would have lost its' appeal for me years ago. Yet I'm not so terrible I draw stick figures and furry porn with cheap crayons and the basic skill level of a challenged 2 year old. Take that as you will,heh.
.....I don't like this site that much....I mean, my one friend is always yelling at me for one thing or's frustrating, to say the least.

then why did you create an account if DA sucks?  :troll: problem? 

But yes,if you have been on Devaintart for like 11 years,are popular,or have premium membership,draw with sai,draw ponies with sai,draw anime with sai,draw with a tablet,or even draw anything with sai,you are drop-dead the ruler of Deviantart.

But the thing is,many artists that draw shit get premium membership,but not everyone with premium draw shit,heck many deviants with that membership draw damn well.

But snobs like that in under 1 minute of publishing get about 30 comments and 100 faves,and the next day 185 comments and 4,000 faves.But actually,to my view,those snobby artists barely reply back because they thing their so "perfect."Plus,thpse are just pics drawn in sai in under 10 minutes and after 2 minutes of publishing get 200 comments,50,000 faves,and 1,000,000 views.WTF???I put charm,effort,and love into my work,and after days or publish I get 0 comments,2 faves,and 10 views,while the people that are popular that make cruddy and effortless shit work after seconds get 80 comments,600 faves,and 3,000 views.Those people are just wannabes.

Many premium members make fucking shit art,and just get the membership because it'll instantly make them popular.When they make donation pools,they make it 1,000,000 points,because in under 30 minutes that bar is gonna be past full,while my donation pool is only reaching up to 30 points,and I made that thing weeks ago,and nobody donated.Non premium members make great art most of the time.

So I do maybe agree with everyone and you on this one.

I used to have a deviantart account before and I got sick of it and I removed my account, not sure why I came back lol. It bugs me that only if your photos are really amazing people will like them. Probably a lot of photographer snobs on here as well that will not like your photos if they aren't 100% perfect.

Alright- the third party stuff I totally agree with. I think it's pretty unfair that DA did that to some people. 

But the design isn't the best, but I don't think it sucks. This is just an opinion, though.

third- you can't judge millions of people off of whoever you've seen just now! Not everyone is unoriginal, and there are plenty of artists here who put tons of work into their stuff and it comes out amazingly. Not saying this is me, but a lot of my friends here.

i use to like deviantart........ but now it is getting so boring unless you are popular or you have a premium membership ! I just would like to get more noticed by people instead of being shoved in the corner for some base the promotes unoriginality or horrible fanfictions. (btw not using my main account and i will never tell my main account)
