What is DeviantArt? Part 1

What is DeviantArt? Part 1

 Although it’s getting rarer these days, I sometimes come across people who ask me what exactly “DeviantArt” means.  Before I begin to explain all the amazing things our community has to offer, they sometimes look at me sideways and say, "Deviant, eh?

Most marketing experts would never name a site "DeviantArt," because the word "deviant" has multiple meanings that can be interpreted in different — not always positive — ways.  Yet we are the greatest, most diverse art community in existence.  Few branding agencies would ever make DeviantArt its infamous green/gray color.  Yet we love it,

How could I not say the Kiss is my favorite. When I think kissing is the best thing two people can do to one another.

Hey Tony!
Congrats for your images.
I am really from another age and I don't understand this site. I want to use some of your pictures on my (yet to be) blog, but I don't know how to do it.
I want them full resolution and I was wondering if you could make some custom changes too.
Thanks! Best!
