So... after some exploration I would say they definitely offer a lot of porn-ish images. The commissions section was definitely not what I thought it was :ROFLMAO: but there is some cool stuff too. I found the Fantasy section pretty great, lots of really cool landscape pieces. If you guys know of any more sites I'm still interested!

LoL, I just looked back there after many-many years, and there is still an art piece someone did of me there from maybe 15 years ago... gawds :LOL:

Ya, DeviantArt isn't as good as it used to be. I've been a member on there for years and it used to a great site. Now, most of what's posted is either fan-art or trash (or both) and you get very, very little feedback from others anymore. I still upload new work every now and then on both of my accounts, but the site is largely dead now.

I want to take my every day photographing towards semi pro stock photographing.


That helps me on my way towards multi format working.

If you're still looking for good art sites, I'd recommend checking out ArtStation. It's an amazing artist platform particularly for the game, film, media, and entertainment industry. I recently moved from DeviantArt to ArtStation as I'm starting to pursue freelance illustration and concept art. I still update my DA gallery every now and then though.

If you are an unknown artist and would like to sell your stuff, can you get good free publicity on ArtStation, or is it a place to post your art and then direct people to it.
I'd say both really. It's a rather large and very active site, so you do get buried easily, but you can still be found through the search function. Of course, directing people there is always a good thing and that's needed no matter where you show your work. ArtStation has three account levels: free, Plus, and Pro. All of which give you a free sub-domain website that's generated from your ArtStation profile and portfolio. The site's not for all art media though, and caters to the gaming/entertainment industry (it's one of the main places where production studios go to hire artists or post job openings). It's for digital 2D, digital 3D, traditional 2D, and traditional 3D work. No photography as they believe there are enough websites out there to show that work. However, if you take really good photography to sell as stock photography, you are allowed to create resource bundles of your photographs and sell them in the website's marketplace.

I am an artist, painting, installation, film etc' But have just started playing with ray tracing (Povray) It is basically code driven like basic or html. You specify forms. position, surface texture, illumination, colour, even refractive indexes of transparent materials. Results are striking. Here is one of my early efforts. The chain for example is made from half toruses joined by cylinders.

Awesome! Thank you so much for sharing! I will definitely check it out.

What kind of freelance art do you do? Just curious :)

I mostly do digital painting, but I would like to do more with some of the traditional sketching techniques as well. Right now, I've been pursing freelance for book covers/illustrations and TCG/RPG card art, but I'm open to other project types as well. Haven't had my first commission yet, but I've been in discussions with someone on their TCG game so I'm hopeful I will soon. In the mean time, I'm still building my portfolio with personal projects and cover art for my own books. Here's the link to my page on ArtStation if you'd like to take a look!
