"deviantART is a popular online artistic community. It was first launched on 6 August 2000 by Scott Jarkoff and Matthew Stephens. Angelo Sotira is the current CEO of deviantART, Inc.

deviantART aims to provide a place for any artist to exhibit and discuss his or her artworks. It also provides a community of like-minded individuals. The site consists of over 1.5 million users and over 17 million submissions (as of Dec. 2005).

deviantART is so named for the exhibits it displays. They are all created differently, with a different idea, and artist, as to be called deviant." - Source: Wikipedia.com

Simply put, deviantART is an online community dedicated to providing a place where artists may share/exhibit their work and receive feedback. Along with the aforementioned, deviantART also has other community features such as chatrooms, forums, shoutboxes, and more.
I can exhibit my work on deviantART.

Site where you can submit artwork to share with the world, to look at, comment on, and critique your technique. Often everything is flooded by poor amateur attempts. The conditions under which you submit your work are somewhat sketchy (pardon the pun) particularly in sections 2-4.
deviantart seems like a good idea, but read before you submit and think if you really need this.

Devian tart, meaning goth girl's or woman's smelly, unwashed genitals marinated in goth outfit.
A devian tart's odours emanated from goth girl's leather trousers.

A place where mediocre, half-assed "artists" can come to feel good about their "art" and criticize (or blindly praise, in the case of fanart) other mediocre, half-assed "artists'" "work".
Good art? On DeviantART? But pigs haven't even learned how to fly yet!

2. OCs
3. FNAF shit

There is some good art don't get me wrong. But the worst, disproportional art is the most popular. People who use MsPaint, bases, or even the worst, Bases in MSPaint for shitty animes like Naruto. I wouldn't be surprised if someone whom was an art equivalent to Van Gogh got little to no views on this horrible abomination for a website. Most people communicate through a thing called notes, which is sort of like a forum between 2 people. Some role players on here are very good though.
Dude 1: Yo! Did you see what I posted on DeviantART?
Dude 2: How many people favourited it?
Dude 1: Like... one.
Dude 2: That must mean you have done a masterpiece.

A place where some naked chick qualifies as art.
Have you been to Deviantart?

No. At least half the stuff there shouldn't qualify as art.
