You know i don't see many gerneral art sites...

Recommended Posts

These days i've noticed that there hasn't been many general art websites besides DA, FA, and Weasyl. The one that i've been to that i actually loved was artspots which really encouraged improvement. i wonder if there will be more sites like that since these days adult artwork does get noticed very often.

Pixiv and Artstation are a few others.

I really wish there were more active ones that weren't either DA or furry. I really don't draw enough anthros or porn, or have an interest in doing so, to get much out of furry-centric art sites.

But most of them have been overtaken by the social media model.

Hmm the reason i didn't mention those since i know the later is aimed at professional artists in the business as well as there are a few requirements to make an account there. And the former while in English is actually a Japanese board so it's whole different story. Though sadly i don't know many other ones now.

I wasn't aware that Artstation had "identity verification" bs on it until now, but I did know that it was aimed at professionals.

But that blows.

Understandable about why they do it. But still not good for people who don't wanna give their personal info to a website to post art on it.

Yup it's there and i can see the reason why that was implemented. https://artstation.groovehq.com/knowledge_base/topics/account-verification

Never have I found a website better at figuring out what art I want to see. Plus even though its Japanese, it translates the tags you search into their equivalents automatically.

I dunno. Pixiv is actually pretty terrible as someone who regularly uploads art and even just for viewing, it's got talent but zero variety and is VERY money hungry and cluttered. It's also anti social as Hell. ;~;

Murr gerneral urt sites are disappearing.

Really do, I feel like since DA is sorta the "name brand", especially for the much younger artists, it's the name that most people think of when they need a site.
Otherwise, a lot of people have their own sites for their work. Hosted by webhosting sites such as.. I can't remember the names atm, but they're becoming quite popular.

Squarespace? That's the one that gets advertised fucking everywhere.

I usually idle on CGPlus https://cgplus.com/  but there is Drawcrowd https://drawcrowd.com

(looking at Drawcrowd's profile of some people not sure why I need to know someone's relationship status on an art site...but okay).

There's also http://www.wysp.ws/

Ahhh. I remember Wysp. Used it for a bit. And then left when the site owner wanted to come and directly make fun of my work and interests openly. :^)
