Wow, it's been a long time!
Well, I haven't posted anything in nearly a year, but I do still come on here to support friends and follow other artists. One of the reasons I haven't posted anything is time, but another is that I need a more professional place to display my art, as I'm almost graduated from college with a major in Studio Art and a minor in Biology. I can't exactly direct employers to my deviantart site, so I'm looking for something better. Also, I never had an especially large following on here, save for people that I know in real life and a few close internet friends. I may still use deviant art for following other artists, as it has the best art archive design that I know of.
I have a personal tumblr account, but not a specific one for art yet. To be honest I really don't like the layout of tumber. I hate having to scroll aimlessly through everything. It also has terrible archive design. I like the folder layout of DA and still don't understand tags on tumblr. It's too streamlined and confusing as a result. Also it's awful at posting large artworks.
I have discovered a website called Art Station that I use. It is very professional, has good archive design, good following and commenting system, but it's a little too professional for somethings. I intend to use that as a professional portfolio archive site, but still need something else to be a happy medium.
I may end up using tumblr or perhaps instagram to form a following, while using Art Station for professional things. I've been trying to build my own website for an artco-op that I started with some friends a while ago, but that's been a long hard process in the making. If you know of any good art websites I haven't mentioned here, or know of good ways to utilize the ones I've mentioned, please let me know! I feel like my art never really picked up on deviant art and want a fresh start!
