ARTSCENE NEWSLETTER: WHAT IS DEVIANTART?

November 5, 2014

Hello….love this time of the year. The best part, we get to turn our clocks back….extra hour of sleep! Today I’m here to share with you about deviantART. Some of you have heard about it, because of the recent competition, What Does Your Art Journey Look Like. I’m here to share with you all about it….I’m giving you a sneak peek!


DeviantART is an online community showcasing various forms of user-made artwork.

It was founded in August 2000 by Scott Jarkoff, Matthew Stephens, Angelo Sotira, and others.

This site provides a platform for any artist to exhibit and discuss works. They are organized in a comprehensive category structure, including traditional art, photography, digital, flash, filmmaking, literature, skins for applications operating system customization utilities and others, along with extensive downloadable resources such as tutorials and stock photography. Additional utilities include journals, polls, groups and portfolios.

Members of DeviantART can create their own works, comment,  and critique on other individual deviation pages.  There is deviantART Muro, which is a browser-based drawing tool that deviantArt has developed and hosts. You can compose in Stash Writer, and you can make a motion book with Madefire. The site has made changes, so I cannot explain about Madefire, but it sounds very interesting!

You can also pick a favorite art work from other members, make a journal entry, and more.

When you sign up for free access you can…..

  • Browse over 297 million unique pieces of art
  • Exhibit, promote and share your art with fellow artists and art enthusiasts
  • Sell Prints and digital downloads of your work
  • Actively participate in the largest art community in the world (over 33 million members)

Go to www.deviantart.com and create. Oh, you can become a Premium member too if you want. Yep, it’s that easy! Yours truly is a Deviant and I love it!

Enjoy the rest of Wednesday….be blessed!

The announcement is coming this Friday so please come back  to read about it!
