Hmm, it won't let me get into this gallery... every time I click the link it says Database Error. Any suggestions of what I could try?

Thank you! I'm starting an album, but I'm not sure if the kind of art I'm sharing is what is intended here... They are just pencil sketches of movie/TV characters; if that isn't really the type of work we should be putting up, I can always take it down. :)

Here's the album if anyone wants to check it out. :)

None of the links to the albums are working for me :( is there an old fashioned way to navigate to it?
Apologies, the gallery was disabled a while back along with all other plugins, due to one of them causing problems to the forums.

Oh bummer! Thank you for letting me know.

Is there another location, on the site or otherwise, that showcases art? I'm curious about authors who create their own art for their writing and about artists who work to bring literary work to life for authors. Anyone have suggestions on how to explore that?

One of the more popular sites for art work is DeviantArt - Discover The Largest Online Art Gallery and Community

As well as allowing artists to showcase their work, there is also a thriving literary section

DeviantArt used to be good, but these days it seems to be 90% fan art or porn. Or fan-art porn.

There's no reason we can't just start an art sharing thread here.

Good point. At least it could be policed on here. And there would be better quality feedback, not just from people looking for llamas :rolleyes:

I recall deviant art from years ago when they first got rolling and what it contained.
So I agree... they have strayed too far from their deviant porn-art roots.

And yes, I get what you meant but what I remember it was exactly opposite (though granted, I might have been pointed to the rare item).

Ya'know...kinda like the name 'deviant--art' says ;)

Well, OK, but I don't remember DeviantArt fifteen years ago or so (I even think I got an account back then) having so much old-fashioned photo porn, for example. I do remember all the furry-sex drawings, and I imagine those have not gone away.
