    Anybody else laugh at the Deviant Art "Summit"?

    It's being called the first gathering of an online artists community.

    I sat and laughed at the tv (it was on G4TechTV) when they got excited about it.

    PSSSHHHH!!!!! I can't wait until the online workshops personally, seeing as I'm to poor to travel about to the real workshops.

    I wouldn't necessarily laugh at them. There are some really good artists among them but they're like diamonds in a disused coal mine. Hard to find, but they're there.

    I didn't laugh at it myself, honestly, I was kind of curious about it. Not enough to interest me in dealing with the responsibilities involved with going cross country to attend, but curious enough to wait for the feedback and see what propects it turned out.

    Got some recommendations? I'm interested in comic, fantasy, concept, and manga/anime arts. The ones I know currently are LeSean, diablo2003 (Matt Brooks), questionstar, among others.

    Other than Ukitakumuki and Artgerm, there are:

    Enayla (Linda Bergkvist),
    Plangdon2,
    Antifan-real,
    Jasinski,
    Anry,
    Randis,
    Yaro42,
    Sweetmoon,
    Noah-kh,
    Krecha,
    Cakes,

    and many others. Just add ".deviantart.com" after their names to look at their devart page. Hoon also posts there.

    You may want to laugh at them if it makes you feel better about your own art. But I wouldn't.

    I'll agree that there are good artists on there, but the summit seemed like it was just whoring out the best so that more people would know of DA. I myself have a DA account, and I know some good people on there, but the event is what gets me. Did anyone learn anything there, was it available to anyone on DA?

    It just seemed like a way for them to get some attention.

    I find DA too much effort for the reward. With so many pros and skilled amateurs all over CA I don't see a point in DA. Not to mention the piss-poor website template. And usually (USUALLY) the good DA artists are just skilled in some some form of anime.. I find that with the best on DA it usually looks like amazing fanart, but still, that fanart FEEL nonetheless, even if it's an original picture.

    What are you talking about? There's all kinds of good artists on DA, and with those good artists, their work look pretty original to me.

    I personally find the DA interface more convenient for me to browse through all the artists' works/activities and to keep track of their new artworks/sketches.
