DeviantArt (formerly stylized as deviantART from 2001 to 2014) is an online community. The site was first launched on August 7, 2000 by Scott Jarkoff, Matthew Stephens, Angelo Sotira and others. DeviantArt, Inc. is headquartered in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles, California, United States. Works are organized in a comprehensive category structure, including photography, digital art, traditional art, literature, Flash, filmmaking, skins for applications, operating system customization utilities and others, along with extensive downloadable resources such as tutorials and stock photography. Additional utilities include journals, polls, groups and portfolios. “Fella,” a small, devilesque robotic character, is the official DeviantArt mascot.
DeviantArt can be a confusing place, and it might be hard to understand, but after watching our state-of-the-art instructional video you’ll be able to wade through Sonic Recolors and Naruto OC Fanfictions like the best of ’em! Good luck, and happy browsing.
