deviantART is one of the largest online art galleries and discussion sites, with over 19 million registered members as of August, 2012.[1] Many professional "anthro artists" submit their work there, as well as amateurs.

deviantART does not allow pornographic and sexually explicit or obscene material to be submitted; however, "tasteful" nudity is allowed, even as photographs.


[edit] deviantART and furry

As of August 2006, deviantART has a top-level anthro category, potentially exposing a greater proportion of the deviantART audience to anthropomorphic art.

Various "clubs" have been formed to connect the furry community on deviantART, similar to communities on LiveJournal. A handful of anthro-oriented chat rooms have also formed since August 2004.

Despite a big presence on deviantART, however, the growth of anthro and furry users (and their influence) is mediocre.[citation needed] However it should be noted the administrators are impartial towards furries,[citation needed] also the user agreement form disallows trolling and is strictly enforced, this has inadvertently benefited the furry community on deviantART greatly.[citation needed]

In August 2011, deviantART's staff initiated a discussion called When being human just isn't enough, about anthropomorphic art and the viewer's connection to it. There were over 2000 replies.

[edit] Mascot


Fella, a small anthropomorphic robotic cat character, is the official deviantArt mascot.
