I just joined.
I'm just lookin to see who else here's on there, and such.
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
That's like asking who has aids.
The few people who willingly have it aren't eager to talk about it outside of their support groups.
the better question would be:
"Who thinks it's usefull to be on deviantArt?"
most ppl here would say: "Not me!"
friends Sketchbooks:Dile_, Stine
my flickr go there if you want to see my photography stuff

I think being on deviantArt would be very useful for someone intending to be a high school art teacher. Think of it like Jane Goodall living with the chimps. And no, I don't mean that ironically at all.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! :-)) Not a bad idea. Though, personally, I go for www.icouldbe.orgOriginally Posted by Elwell
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

I'm on dA- for what its worth.
I was trying to get back into art and thought that maybe the crits would help- it's kinda hard to get them if your style isn't anime.
And my anime hand is not strong.
I still post in my journal there but for getting my skills up CA is the serious business.

I've been there for a while.. kinda wish I knew about this site sooner. Found out about it earlier this year.. Gotta do some work though, I've hardly posted here.
I mostly use DA to keep track of all my favorite artists. I rarely update my own DA page anymore, since hardly anyone goes to it. *shrugs*
Man, I've always considered DeviantArt to be an overgrown, myspacey version of Elfwood; take that as you will.
The only reason I have any respect for the site at all is that the most skilled artist I know has a fairly active deviantart page, so I guess that counts for... something.
Agreed with Jen, I wouldn't at all consider it a skill developing site (like conceptart.org), but it's still a fun site to socialize with a lot of great artists I know on there (and there are a lot of great ones on there). Plus, I think it's important to try to keep track of what is popular among the general demographic. Even if it's weird stuff.
deviant art gives me shrieking cooties. nah I kid. I used to have a deviant art account but then I found CA....unfortunately I have a one track mind and focus on one site only. woops. Some wonderful art in there though.. not the majority...but nice nonetheless
Well, I'm on both. There are some truly astounding works of art on there, and that's not sarcasm.
I do think that the general Conceptart view on Deviantart is a little high and mighty, like 'all those on Deviantart are just 12 year old kids drawing pictures of Nah-rooo-tow in crayons.'
This is not true! 98% of people on Deviantart draw crayon pictures of 'Saaah-soo-kay,' and not 'Nah-rooo-tow' at all. 6% of people on Deviantart are excellent artists, several times better than me or indeed most of the people here! Did you see my good maths there!
Seriously, though. Have a look at some of these:
