11 Reasons Why I Love dA11 Reasons Why I Love DeviantART11 Reasons Why I Love dA4 years ago in 11 Things I Love about dA
Because I have made a variety of new friends and connections... from different cultures, different ages, different countries, different mediums, different styles.
Because I'm inspired on a daily basis through the showcases of art via the Daily Deviation system. I've discovered art in genres and in themes I wouldn't have before.
Because I've been educated in genres and mediums I had no previous knowledge of, helping me to understand the journey I'm on.
Because it's helped me gain the confidence in myself and my work needed to be a better person and artist. It's helped me sell myself to clients and make the connections I wouldn't have been able to before.
Because if it wasn't for the exposure I've received, I don't think I would be working in vector as a living.
Because I've been able to share my knowledge with others and discover more about my medium of choice, helping me to develop further

11 Things I Love About DA11. Chatroom Events11 Things I Love About DA4 years ago in 11 Things I Love about dA
Imagine sitting in your desk chair and talking with other deviants from around the world in a crowded chatroom. People are throwing emoticons like candy and announcing they will 'brb' after they go the restroom. Then, one of the admins posts that there is a scribble event for the next thirty minutes with three prize winners. You hastily download the deviation with a few random lines out of it, and because you're poor, you upload it to MS Paint. Sweat pours from your face as you try to make sense out of those lines. And just two minutes before time is up, you upload it to your scraps and link the thumbnail in the chat. Congrats, you're done! Just kidding, tee-hee. Now, you have to wait patiently whilst three to five admins decided on the winners. Seven grueling minutes later, they post the winners. Well, you didn't get the 50 first-place prize… Nor the 35 second-place prize. But, hey! Isn't that your fox with the freakishly round bubbleg

5 - The groups system. I love it how groups make it so much easier to find people with a common interest, bringing the community even closer.
6 - The Drama. Be it because of trolls, art thieves or controversial matters like the artistic nudity vs porn debate, the DA drama can also be an effective form of entertainment, specially if you watch from the sidelines.
7 - I love it how easy is to lear

11 Things I ADORE about dA11 Things I ADORE about dA4 years ago in 11 Things I Love about dA
I love that there's not just one kind of art. There's literature, photography, anime, comics, stamps...everything. There's something for everyone to find out where in the art world they belong.
I love the fact that I can submit my art and people actually notice it. The fact that I know for sure my poetry is being read or my art is being seen.
I love how I made so many friends. There's so many different, funny and unique people just like me, and best of all, they're artists!
I love looking at other people's glorious artwork :3

I love that I can tell my friends about it and have so much good things to say, and how I encouraged them to join...and they enjoy it too!
I like checking my messages when I log on and seeing that people commented--actually commented!--on my art. It makes me feel l
