I started drawing and would like to post my work on a website, without having to make my own blog. I'm looking for a kind of "social network for images".

I tried the most popular images social network, Instagram, but it is absolutely not what I'm looking for. Maybe it is good for photos of your food, but for drawings I think it is quite awful (upload only from phone, squared images...).

I mainly think about Tumblr, but it is not as famous as Instagram, and not really handy too... Imgur is a different concept.

What are the main/popular websites or community for sharing art? I want:

  • easy upload
  • easy sharing
  • easy commenting
  • (possibly uploading directly from the phone)

Thank for your time and advices, Cheers!

  • I'm closing this question as off-topic because product and service recommendation questions are specifically off-topic. You can read more about on-topic questions in the help guide or on our Arts & Crafts Meta. – user24 Dec 21 '17 at 15:33
  • I read: "Proper media storage" is considered on-topic, and that's the point of my question: keep track and share. The same for "tool selection" (according to one's definition of "tool", a website or software can fit). – Nicolas Cailloux Dec 21 '17 at 17:41

    That's refers to stuff like how to safely store your physical works or supplies so that they don't fade/dry out/break/leak fumes, etc. You're welcome to ask a question about it on Arts & Crafts Meta and see if we want to make an exception for websites. (However, the non-digital parallel to this question is "What shop/gallery is best for displaying drawings?" is clearly a service recommendation question. I think taking a visit to Arts & Crafts Chat might be the best place to get these types of recommendations. – user24 Dec 21 '17 at 19:06

    tool-selection is what's involved in the creation of your art, not display or advertisement of it. I agree that this is a "shopping list" style question -- even though you're not buying something it's a potentially limitless bunch of options and could become outdated rapidly. – Erica Dec 22 '17 at 0:17

You could try www.deviantart.com . I never used it but it seems like it's a website for artists to easily show their work. I think it is even possible to sell prints of your art.

  • I've used Deviant Art, and it has a pretty good artist community. It is also free, but if you really like it and want extra features there is a premium tier called "Core" that you can use as well. – Wimateeka Dec 21 '17 at 14:31
  • UI is kind of rough, old-fashioned, but the features seem good enough. I don't intend to sell so I probably won't go with the Premium feature. Thx – Nicolas Cailloux Dec 21 '17 at 17:47
