Update* This is the last time I'll be updating this journal, since DA FINALLY
got back to me on why this journal was blocked on updates. I'm no longer on
this account and will not be updating this journal anymore. I don't know if anyone
is still interested in branching out from Deviantart, but if you are this journal will be here
and if you have anymore site suggestions please leave them in comments below. Thank you!

I've been having a weird error with updating this journal, I get this;
"Journal contains blocked content" and it won't let me update it BUT this website
would def go into the journal if I could. I'm gonna try contacting DA about this error
or just make a whole new website journal altogether

(because I'm fairly certain DA only blocked this one journal
because it's promoting other sites lol)

I'll feature this comment, hopefully that'll be good enough in the meantime ;o;

I'm looking for a site that will let me easily do commissions. Commissions aren't easy on DA any more considering how the point system has officially fucked over a lot of people looking to make money. Does anyone have any good recommendations for my type of thing?

This list looks interesting, but would any of these sites welcome the kind of pictures I draw?

I am, lol.
I'll check it out. At first glance, it seems to be a lot more
personal/selfie posts than art. But, like I said, I'll check it out.

Yeah it's different but I love it.  I just wish they would fix the bug cause I can't renew my core membership til they do and it's pissing me off.

I was actually looking into artstation. I wasn't sure if I should add it to the list though,
it's rather professional and I'm not sure if they'd want the DA community rampaging through. xD

why are so many people leaving? I'm confused where all this has come from, especially recently. I've been looking into alternatives though, yknow just to see if there's something better

Mostly because dA is filled with children and beginner artists now who just make fan art of TV shows that are popular to them, CORE is too expensive, actually good and skilled artists get called snobs by younger artists, comments and support have decreased for those who have their art as a job, etc. The list of reasons goes on and on, but they've grown worse since time has gone on with this website.

This is a ridiculously late reply but anyway, DA isn't the best for people who want to make money through commissions. Lots of people leave because most people like to pay with points and that's a problem for those looking to make money. For instance $1 is 80 points, you end up having people wanting to buy things for 10 points thinking its a good, decent price when in reality that's absolutely nothing for the poor artist.

there's A LOT of drama on dA nowadays.
it's not really about the art any more, it's mostly about trolling people and starting drama.
that's why people are leaving.

This. I can fully agree. My art was stolen by a troll recently and it has made me want to switch art sites.

It's such a shame :-( I did want to stay because this sort of acts as a portfolio for me, but DA does seem rather unprofessional now, and there's all the drama added in :/ maybe I'll go to tumblr or something if things don't improve

yeah.
though, i would suggest trying to find a site besides tumblr, seeing as it's the home of the SJWs.

Would PaintBerri be a possible site...? It's in beta, but I know some people who use it and enjoy it. It's not so much "submitting" or making a portfolio. From what I've seen, you just draw by yourself, or with friends. It has pen settings, and even a mobile version of the site and painting program.

I'll check it out, from how it sounds and what I'm reading in the FAQ
it's not as similar to DA as some users would want, but it does sound like
it could be added to the "Worth A Look" list.

these! I'll check them out some more and add
them to the list.

Have you looked into Patreon?
Reply
:iconyqk:
YQK Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've been meaning to update this journal,
I think Patreon should be in the "Similar" section.

With Patreon, you can upload art/music/literature/etc.
And, as a content creator, make money for doing so
by getting support from your Patreon followers.
Plus, you can give out rewards with the system
over there to your biggest supporters or your whole
base of followers.

A lot of artists use Patreon now. It's not STRICTLY an
art sharing website though.

I hope that answers any questions?
