  • ArtStation

    • It has lots of character and environment art, like DeviantArt, and unlike the others, which focus on design and photography. Guest • Sep 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Doesn't look good for hobbyists. Guest • Jul 2020 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Great if you're a professional in digital media, concept art, etc., not so much if you're a hobbyist or other media like photography, writing, traditional art. Guest • May 2020 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • ArtStation overall is the best alternative to any site I've seen, it also encourages better work, even if considered more on the commercial side, you still can upload there, and it does good for your projects too. Otherwise, keep it to yourself. Guest • May 2020 • 0 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This is for professional media and entertainment artists, not for a variety like DA has Guest • Apr 2020 Disagree   Agree

Great collection

DevianArt is a great art website housing many beautiful art collections. However, it's lacking the Oil Portrait Customization aspects which I feel ArtistViewpoint can compromise what is missing.


It's really not that great at all. It just looks like a bullying site disguised as an art platform.
