dA Connection/Slowdown issues for users



For several days, many dA users are not able to access the site. Connection/slowdown isses, pages not loading means many who are trying to access the site or contact people are not able to do so. This is leading many people to confusion. deviantART is already aware of the situation and they are continuously working to get it fixed soon!

They have announced it in their deviantART Status section of help:


You can keep up to date with any announcements by email they make through deviantART Status by subscribing to it (click the link below):

-> How to Subscribe to the deviantART Status Forum and to Individual Posts



However, many are not able to even access the deviantART Status page, as the same issue persists there, as you have to log in there to click subscribe. Many who have commissioners waiting, status updates and other communications waiting means the people on the other end of the communication are not aware why the people they need to contact may not be able to respond for this period of time, so this announcement is to let them know about this. If you are able to share it across the net, know others who are not aware of this situation, please let them know that it may be for this particular reason. If you are able to subscribe to the deviantART Status, do so so you may be personally updated for any updates regarding dA through email.


You can also reblog this same information on Tumblr from here: Click Here

You can always contact dA to get the info, such as these:

deviantART Tumblr
Contact deviantART Help Desk
deviantART Help Desk Status Updates l How to subscribe to status forum
deviantART Facebook



This post is only to let everyone know that dA team is already aware of the situation and they are working on it. Stay positive and creative!

Ah, I see. Autocorrect happens to even the best of us. :aww:

I'm sorry, but seniormentors only accepts seniors as members. However, you can always watch the group, and you do not need to be a member to request a mentor. You could also join Deviant-Mentor, which accepts all types of members.

Search the "About Me" section of %seniormentors to see if there is a specific mentor you can ask questions to. Also, be sure to check all the amazing tutorials that are posted under "Resources" that can help with all sorts of art. Search by clicking on "Resources" on the dA page, then "Tutorials" then narrow the search by typing in the type of tutorial you are looking for in the little white box, top left of the search-page results :hug:

I personally am not volunteering, as I'm a college student who doesn't have time to take on a mentee. :(

I would recommend you join or watch groups that focus on art tutorials, as you will receive tutorials in your inbox and can use those to branch out and try new techniques.
Here are some tutorial-related groups: #Divine-Tutorials #Tutorial-City #Tutorials-and-co #TutorialsClub #Tutorials-for-free 

I'd also recommend trying new drawing styles, realism in particular (FOERVRAENGD has some great tutorials), because it helps you understand human anatomy and base your style off of proper anatomical structure. A strong understanding of anatomy gives you a lot more stylistic freedom and expertise.

Good luck! :aww:

Hey folks and folkettes!





I'm 31 years old and I have a good bit of experience in manual art from sculpting to pencils and inks, watercolour and oil, etc. I'm also an excellent creator and writer according to many who have seen me at work. (been running my own rpg adventures both tabletop and on-line for as long as I can remember)

I also know the basics of 2d and 3d digital art, but I'm about to pick it up and feeling quite a good bit intimidated.

So I'm looking for mentor(s) who can actually help me make the jump from uncertain to knowing what I'm doing.

I'm a fantasy- and comicbook type of guy. So my main interests lie in characterisation, lineart (both sketching and fleshing it out digitally) and colouring, digital painting, and mudbox as well as proper 3d design and animation of the characters / scenes I construct.

Would like a person who has been at it for a good while and is able to explain work process and technique with a more hands-on approach instead of in raw theory.

Not looking for people who would do the brunt of the work for me, but looking for people who can teach / help me ease into this.
So, like, 1 on 1 sort of deal.




Stay awesome <3

From #seniormentors

Feel free to sort through the "about us" to see what each mentor's specialties are. It could help to peruse the galleries on staff members as well at Mentors, then contact a mentor directly with issues you are having :aww:
