Alternatives to DeviantART
I know many people are upset about the Core Membership changes (and even changes, policies, or actions far before that) and are looking for alternate sites to use. I think it's important not to rely too heavily on one person or one service, so I would like to support you all in spreading your wings and broadening your horizons. It's a good idea to at least consider registering and participating in other sites also, even if you don't leave dA. 

A lot of people are looking for alternatives to deviantart. While Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook do support visual posts, they are limited. Twitter is notable for being bad for long text posts, and Tumblr is customizeable but can be very disorganized, and any form of community there is very disjointed. Facebook has a heavy censorship policy, similar to usersub on Imgur. Facebook and Twitter compress and shrink images in a terrible way that will destroy the view of high resolution art. Patreon

Hello hello, welcome to DA! I took one glance at your first deviation and I could already tell that you're probably a professional xD Your art looks amazing! ((Unlike mine haha-)) So if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me! :> Have a good day!

Thank you for the warm greeting.  Believe it or not, I used to draw EXACTLY like you!  But I had a senpai in school who inspired me to draw and draw and post and post, and study and persevere no matter how silly or amaturish it all looked at the time.  Even when I knew my art wasn't worth the time spent away from video games or going out with friends, those friends (and even my family!) never stopped encouraging me.  I wouldn't say I'm professional, I've just had a good couple decades to see what works and what doesn't, to scour tutorials and carve out a comfortable studying method.

Believe it or not, it really is just as easy as learning all the rules of realism and classical elements of balance and motion, and THEN utilizing a simplified character style to expedite the process.  Gotta do the boring stuff to level up the fun stuff.  (BUT NEVER GIVE UP ON THE FUN STUFF.  FANDOM AND FANART HELPED KEEP MY SPIRITS UP WHEN MY SKILL JUST WASN'T CUTTING IT, so don't underestimate the power of co m m u n i t y, haha)
