Create a beautiful, new Portfolio featuring your DeviantArt Gallery in minutes!

We’re excited to announce the beta version of our new Portfolio feature is here! Portfolio, powered by Wix, allows you to easily create and customize a beautiful portfolio site in just a few clicks. Sync your DeviantArt Gallery to create a portfolio that you can share with friends, family, potential clients, and more.

The beta version of Portfolio is only accessible on DeviantArt Eclipse and is currently available exclusively to Core Members -- in advance of the rest of the DeviantArt community. Soon, Portfolio will be launched to all deviants. To get started, follow these steps:

  1. Using DeviantArt Eclipse, hover over your avatar and select “Create” next to Portfolio.
  2. A Wix.com account is needed for Portfolio. If you already have a Wix.com account that uses the same email address associated with your DeviantArt account, the two accounts will be synced. If you do not have a Wix.com account, Portfolio will create one for you with the email associated with your DeviantArt account.
  3. Select the title and add a description to your Portfolio. This offers a quick glimpse of your site to visitors.
  4. Any text in your DeviantArt bio will be added to your Portfolio bio, but you can edit it based on what you’d like to feature about yourself.
  5. Choose which Gallery folder will automatically sync to your Portfolio, and link any other sites or social media platforms.
  6. Pick a theme that best reflects your style!
  7. After you’ve completed these steps, you’ll be redirected to Wix.com to preview your Portfolio. Here you can make additional changes, preview your site, and finally, PUBLISH!

Portfolio is an extension of your uniqueness – just like how adding sections to your Profile helps showcase you, your artwork, and your activity. Easily create a completely curated presentation of who you are. Portfolio is also an excellent way to explore and show off a hobby or interest!

Members of our Advisory Board have already had an opportunity to play with Portfolio. Check out some of their creations below!

Portfolios

Portfolio is still a work in progress and we are actively making improvements. If you encounter any bugs, issues, or have questions, feel free to comment on this journal. We encourage you to explore and have fun, and make sure to share your Portfolio links in your bio, custom section, anywhere and everywhere!

Click here for our Knowledge Base article on the new Portfolio.

The new Portfolio feature in Eclipse is a different feature from the classic site’s Portfolio; as such, any Portfolio created on the classic site will not migrate over to a Wix site.

Hi GreatKitsune50

Sorry to hear you were experiencing issues! There was a reported issue that should have been fixed today. Can you try and create a Portfolio again? If you are still experiencing issues, please feel free to contact me directly via chat! Thanks!

I started playing around with it, but can't find anything in the FAQs for this....

Hi LegitAshBullet

I'm not able to recreate this issue. Can you tell me what kind of device and browser you are using? Thanks.

Is there a way to get your DA portfolio to sync to multiple pages? It works just fine on my homepage but when I try to make a Gallery page, it won't let me connect to DA. Still trying to demystify this whole Wix thing, but it's very cool so far.

Hi longestdistance

At the moment, you are only able to sync one DeviantArt Gallery folder to your Portfolio. Through the Wix Editor, you can add different pages and sections; however, only one DeviantArt Gallery folder can be synced and automatically update. I hope that clarifies!

Thanks for your response! Everything's good here now

hmm... looks pretty nice! I am already using wix so this would be cool. But sadly, it sorts the pictures by recency, but I'd like it to take over the order of the gallery folder I have chosen.

Will I be able to get a free domain or get the wix banner removed if I have core membership?

Paying for core and a wix website sounds inconvenient, and the old portfolio is already convenient.

what if you already have a Wix website?

Hi JarperArt

If you already have a Wix website registered with the same email you are registered to DeviantArt with, it will recognize that and add your Portfolio to your Wix site dashboard. I hope that clarifies! :)

Hi JarperArt

Not sure I understand. Please feel free to send me a note with more details on what you are experiencing. Thanks!

I'm having the same problem: I already have a website and I want to add my DA portfolio to it, but all it's done is create a new website that I don't know how to get rid of or sync with my current (very advanced) website

Hi Astroblaze

Do you currently have a Wix site? Please clarify. Thanks!

Astroblaze's avatar

I do, yes -- that's what I meant by website.

I'm glad the WIX partnership is finally paying off! I am seriously considering switching from Squarespace. Is the custom domain transfer easy?

Hey KrisVlad

If you are planning on transferring your domain purchased elsewhere to Wix, It is recommended that you connect your domain to Wix via nameservers or pointing first.

This article will help clarify the difference between transferring and connecting:

https://support.wix.com/en/article/transferring-vs-connecting-your-domain-to-wix

Connecting will significantly decrease the amount of time it takes to have your Wix site up and running, Since connecting via Nameservers takes up to 48hrs and transferring a domain can take up to 7 days.

This article will help elaborate on the process of connecting via nameservers:

https://support.wix.com/en/article/connecting-a-domain-to-the-wix-name-servers

Also, If you have questions about the process, Wix has an amazing support team:

https://support.wix.com/en/article/contacting-wix-support

PS. You have beautiful Photography!

Hope this helped!

Hi KrisVlad

Thanks for your comment! Based on Wix support, it typically takes ~a week or so to transfer domains :)

I hope this helps!

I still can't add any new deviation section to the page. It needs me to write in my deviantart account name but i'm not able to write anything in, so i'm stuck with this instead. My site is almost finished, but this keeps holding me back.
