      pixiv vs DeviantArt opinions
      Most users think pixiv is a great alternative to DeviantArt.
      It seems like it's more oriented to one region of the world instead of worldwide like DA

      Dribbble is more for professional designers looking to get hired, rather than a mix of pro and hobbyist

      500px vs DeviantArt opinions
      This alternative is disputed. 500px is still a legitimate alternative to DeviantArt, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      500px is for photos, not illustration.

      It's photography-exclusive.

      500px is geared exclusively toward photography, while DeviantArt is a platform for all forms of art.

      Very nice, but you have to pay for 1 year in advance and that's something I don't like. Monthly recurring payment, and I'am in !

      ArtStation vs DeviantArt opinions
      Some users think ArtStation is a great alternative to DeviantArt, some don't.
      It has lots of character and environment art, like DeviantArt, and unlike the others, which focus on design and photography.

      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.

      Art station is geared more towards commercial projects than independent creators.

      Doesn't look good for hobbyists.

      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.

      This is for professional media and entertainment artists, not for a variety like DA has
