Site Update



DeviantART is proud to announce two major improvements to the way you browse and discover artwork on the site. These feature are currently only available to Beta Testers . More Like This is deviantART’s newest content discovery tool – enabling you to find similar, relevant deviations, artists, and collections to a chosen deviation. In addition to More Like This, we've made a number of improvements to browsing on deviantART, including an updated navigation, a "full view" mode, and endless scrolling.

  • The "Notify me upon resolution" checkbox has been removed from the Report Deviation modal because we found that it promoted negativity within the community and led to harassment.
  • The Twitter emoticon was updated.



  • The maximum size of brushes has been made bigger.
