Deviant Art is probably the biggest and most well known art community website in existance.

There are many smaller and more specialized art communities. But you will be hard pressed to find one that is as large or as all inclusive. Digital, Pencil, Photography, Calligraphy even writing is considered a form of deviant art at this site; and no site contains as many admirers.

If you are an artist, there is no better opportunity for exposing your work to the public for free than Deviant Art. You can also make friends, chat, request peer critiques of your work and in some cases (see site for details) sell prints (and some other items) of your work directly through the site.

But even more than that, Deviant Art is a community of people which is made up of folks with artistic inclinations. Whether you are a novice or an expert you can find friends, get advice, and immerse yourself in the culture and maybe even gain some fans. If you are an art appreciator there is no other one spot on the web (that I kow of) where you can see such incredible work and have such unfettered access to the artist.

Deviant Art has different accounts, the maost basic of which is entirely free and allows you to utilize most of the functions of the site. If you enjoy art in any form you will most likely find this site quite enjoyable. If there is a specific type of art you appreciate you are very likely, no matter how obscure, to find some prime examples on this site. And if you are an anime of mang fan you will most likely never want to leave.

I have an account on Deviant Art.  Guess what my username is!  No, really, guess, it's a real tricky one!

The only trouble is I generally don't have any new art to put up there so I keep forgetting that it exists.  But I do have one piece up there that has some two-point perspective I'm pretty proud of.  It has a burning building.  You could say that has some deeper meaning but I think I just wanted an excuse to use my charcoal pencils.

I've found some great artists on there, however, like sachsen, who does some of the best horror parody drawings I've seen.  Although admittedly I haven't seen many, but still.

So yeah, it is a good way to gain exposure.

All the artists working on the Remedy short with me came via Deviantart and I origiginally found Jason that was as well. It's an amazing site.

As for your burning building your human characters could use some polish but there is some nice perspective work on the buildings and horizon. Nice.

Thanks.  I love doing perspective work for some reason, even though it tends to be a pain in the ass when even a ruler doesn't completely solve the problem of me not being able to draw straight lines...

I just fell a little more in love with deviantart today, considering the ad they happened to have when I was editing my profile was for the Grameen Foundation.  Not that deviantart is directly responsible for said ad, but it was still cool to see it on there instead of something like "NARUTO BOOKS BUY THEM NOW LOLZ"
