deviantART is one of the largest online art galleries and discussion sites, with over 19 million registered members as of August, 2012. 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.
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. However it should be noted the administrators are impartial towards furries, also the user agreement form disallows trolling and is strictly enforced, this has inadvertently benefited the furry community on deviantART greatly.
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.
