Most Annoying Things In DeviantArt

DeviantART is a really awesome website about pictures and so on. But there's also a dark side of the. Let's take a look at it.

The Top Ten

Inflation fanart

I always stumble upon these monstrosities when I just wanna look at images of a character I like, like Poppet from Moshi Monsters, Hoops and Yoyo, Miraitowa and Someity the tokyo 2020 mascots, ect. Like I said, No one is safe.

These people who draw vore/inflation/fat/etc., are ruining their lives. If that person gets a job, and the boss looks at every single bit of their DeviantArt and social media, then the boss would just fire that fetish artist. Please, fetish art ISN'T EVEN SEXY, IT'S DISGUSTING. Trinity-fate, Jaykuma, Metalforever, and Satsurou are some prime examples of fetish artists.-Vestalis

If you're searching for your favourite female video game character, you'll find some disturbing inflation pictures of her. Really awkward. And not only inflation pictures. But also pregnant, giant feets, the REALLY horny snake Kaa hypnotizing her, vore and so on. Disgusting.

Fetishes and inflations in particular have got to be tge most disgraceful things on DeviantArt. I can't believe every time I look for some cool pics, they're most likely inflation porn. Not just porn. She's also shown barefoot, muscular or naked. How unfortunate.

You can't delete a comment

And that sucks. I hope that they'll give you that option as well as the option to disable profile comments, too.

Yeah, I wish you can delete comments. I hope they add that feature soon.

You can hide your comments but they still show up in the counter

You can't delete, but you can hide them.

Finding pictures that don't match your search

I remember like two years ago searching drawings about the concept of "final boss", which at the beginning it shows you many examples of iconic game final bosses, interpretations and the iconic drawings of Final Boss Veigar skin from LoL. And now, the more you keep searching for more final boss drawings, the deeper you go encountering some absurd and simple drawn deviations that had anything or nothing to do with the concept of final boss, also that there are some stupid drawings depicted as weak jokes related to office bosses and not game bosses, and not to mention fetishes.

As I wrote about finding "final boss" stuff, I claimed that I've encountered with unfunny horrors that do bad depictions of a final boss, do "office boss" jokes and do gross fetishes too, so they should die.

Yes! Finally someone pointed that out! Once I tried looking up "Welcome To The Wayne" and only about 3% of the whole search results are the ones I wanted too see. The rest of them are bad artworks of Nickelodeon shows (mostly Loudcest) and fanarts if Batman (because of the word "Wayne" maybe? ).

Tried searching "Grim Gloom the 7D" and some random pictures show up. Especially when I try to find a recast with him. It just bugs me.

The dumb search error

Instead of showing results I got this incredibly stupid error! Seriously, is this a dumb bug or is this meant to piss us of?

I got Error 404 after clicking on Tundran Territories fan art, and the site's creator(s) don't seem to be willing to remove it, what!?

Yeah, it was one of the reasons I quit DA. I'm sick of this 404 error. And I'm sick of Fella.

You cannot disable comments on your profile

The disability to disable comments is what got me harassed to the point of leaving DeviantArt. I hate this site.

Yeah, and this just sucks. I wish this feature will be added soon, along with deleting negative comments.

Oh yes. I had to write a notice to tell people to not post anything. So far its it's working.

They need to implement this feature at some point.

Too many Twitch Ads
Full view

May be a new feature but it's really annoying because the switches sometimes automatic to this mode. If you'll find a disgusting picture like inflation fanart, this 'cool' feature will show you this with FULL RESOLUTION.

People thanking you for the fave

it's pretty nice, but also pretty annoying. I only thank people if it doesn't have to do with favs or llamas (like thanking someone for the watch or something)

This actually deserves to be on this list. I got really irritaded (don't know what other word to use) when people constantly spammed me these comments like if I did it personally. At first I hide their comments and un-fave what I faved from them, but then I just ignored it.
I don't collect fanarts just to make the art creator happy. I just fave them because I think it's an amazing artwork I'd love to save in my collection of entertaining fanart that I don't wanna forget or needing a research to find the artwork again. I do NOT always I care about who drew the artwork, all I care is that I love the picture. It's complicated and kinda hard to understand, but yeah I'm smart just like that! I'm so... Shut Up!

If you're fine with people thanking you over favouring their stuff, that's great, but not everyone will be tolerant with these kind of reasons to be thankful, (not) sorry to say this, but the favers are honestly not even obligated to allow *Thanks for the Fave* comments in ...more

Why is this here? This is just other users rightfully being kind. If it wasn't for some decent artists treating others the way they would want to be treated, Deviantart's issues with trolling and cyberbullying would have plagued the site enough for its whole community to eventually implode long ago.

It was fine for a while, but it's really irritating! I know people want to thank me for it, but sorry, I am not accepting anymore of these comments.

Images that has everything in their keywords

I searched for Peach, I found a picture of some hedgehog. I searched for Daisy, I found a picture of some hedgehog again. I searched for Rosalina, and I STILL found a picture of some hedgehog.

Ah yes, the Sonic fandom is nuts. It's like they name their OCs after every fictional character you can think of.

I want an art of ___, but then a picture of a potato appears...

That is so outrageous.

You can't block users/unblock them for 48 hours

MasterInterneto1 deserves to be blocked. So please everyone, BLOCK THAT DOXXING CYBERBULLY as much as possible. He knows about someone's IP address, and this can't be tolerated.

What of you have problems with them again? Sorry can't help you. You'll just have to wait.
That is why I have to be wise in blocking and unblocking on DA.

That makes no sense.

The Contenders

Fetish artwork

Self-explanatory. I think fetishes are mind-numbing, disgusting and stupid. They get in the way of good stuff. Landscape artists and photographs are mostly safe :), but everything else is a minefield, especially fanart concerning popular characters and franchises, such as Dragon Ball and other animes, Sonic, Five Nights at Freddy's, Frozen, Harry Potter, Pokemon, Dora, My Little Pony, Spyro the Dragon and Zootopia. So, for franchises someone might like, that's sad.

Hence I got bored and choose a few favorites and EXPLORE the WEBSITE two or three time per year. And I usually REGRET it.

Someone tell that those two stupid users who are fetish cultists and bad ortographers to shut the hell up and forbid the law of hating fetish art also if they are Trump worshippers.

Fetish art isn't true art, that's just ruining the beauty of it. Yeah, I know that the R34 art is corrupted too, but sometimes, we aren't ready to see the world with virgin eyes, and so, let's go on with the life.

Fetish art is fine, let people what you want. Deviant literally means fetish, I think people should just go be boring somewhere else. Devianart is for EVERYONE, don't like it go to tumblr were you belong.

How is it natural to have fetishes? Anyone who says that is a sick freak with no life since most fetishes are disgusting.

Art theives

No matter how many years pass by in DA world I find users:
-Tracing screenshots and popular art/artists.
- recolors, butt loads of them.
-Frankin-shops of other artists work
-outright lifts of artists work from outside DA
-there are even instances of thieves selling the stolen art at conventions.
- subject and medium doesn't matter if you make it they will steal it.

Lots of good artists have left DA because of this on going issue. I even left for three years because a friend had his 3d work stolen and the admins took months to respond. Didn't want the same happening to me.

An art thief who traces over other people’s work is EKJr who constantly traces over JaviSuzumiya’s art. He is also a Clyde McBride worshipper unlike the majority of the fandom and he ships Clyde with literally everyone on the show.

Several idiots are claiming that I stle artwork lol.

That's why I use a "MD♡" signature. I hate art thieves. Make your own art and be creative, or don't use the site.

Almost all fanart is anime bishies

I don't have a thing against people who draw anime but most of the time, a western cartoon character is drawn in a bishie style just for the sake of eye candy. In this style, there is nothing unique about them as they all look the same.

I hate it when they turn manly characters into bishies. It makes them out of character for no reason. Why not accept them the way they are?

Some anime art is actually mindblowing, but it seems that drawing in this kind of style is a shortcut to getting popular.

Even though I'm not against anime, it just takes over DeviantArt and makes anime overrated.

Not having a PM

That is literally frustrating. Many people rudely say "NO" when I kindly ask them to give me Core. And make me open commissions which I can't stand at all.

It's within someone's rights to not spend money on giving you a Core. If you want a Core that bad, earn points through commissions.

There is notes.

There is a PM. It's called Notes.


Not al furries draw porn. Clean furries are fine, but the porn drawers are gross

You misspelled anti-furries.

Shenzi fans are all perverts.

Fart fetishes

Ironically it 'stinks' less than the idiots who complain about a bodily function that everyone does.

It didn't impress me, but that's another one to be forbidden too.

Fart is gross,why the people like this?

Like the fart fetishes of the Wii Fit Trainer. Disgusting. Can you say, G-R-O-S-S? Sheesh!

Hate art

This type of art is going too far

Why isn't this higher?

Should be private.

Blocking users doesn't make them invisible to you

Please just make them invisible. Because all of the people I block are people I do not want to hear from again.

It has changed after so many years

This would be better

The Loud House "Memes"

They've probably had watched Nickelodeon. (AKA the meme channel! )

This should be the most annoying thing in deviantart

Ya it's annoying now

Those memes are trash.

Fan girls who ship characters with themselves in their art.

Jiminycricketfan007 is a major example of this. Not only she ships herself with a fictional character, but also a deceased voice actor who played said character as well. Ouch. Her unhealthy obsession has gone way too far to the point of attracting so many trolls. This is not a person to look up to or see as a role model to be honest. I hope she grows out of her nasty obsessions soon and start facing reality. It's fine to like an actor, actress or fictional character, but treating them as your lovers is not good behavior at all.

Deviantart's most famous Snufkin-fangirl Snuffy-art does this all the time. For every fanhood she ever have, she creates an self-insert who has romantic loverelationship with the hottest guy of the fanbase. Her self-inserts have no bad sides at all, they are always same looking as herself and all so good and perfect of course. Her gallery is always full of pics about herself usually sucking her cartoon-crushes face, and there is no fanart from her without herself included into the pic. It's same than with Jiminycricketfan007, only exception is that she changes her fanhoods time to time, unlike JCF007.

I like seeing OCs and self-inserts with canon characters time to time, but not all the time. It is scary and odd, especially when they ship themselves with canon characters and demands everyone else stop liking same characters as they do, becouse "that characters belongs to me, he / she is taken! "

Also Morteneng21 ships (at least time to time) himself with My ...more

This is ridiculous... "Oooh! I'm gonna make a fan art of me and Sonic! " "Ooooh! I'm gonna make a fan art of me and Light Yagami! " "Ooooh! I'm gonna make a fan art of me with my reverse anime harem! (in other words, With all the anime guys the girl likes)" And so on. Now, can I just look up for the fanart I've been looking because I looked up for a badass fanart. Not a shipping fanart

This is just...creepy. If you're honestly desperate enough to ship yourself with Mario or something, you may have a problem!

Cuphead Fanart

Everything from the franchise and fandom are annoying.

Most of the fan art is good, but please watch out for r34 art...

Also, the game gets too much hate on here just because of it’s fandom. Same thing with BATIM on here.

I drink to forget but I always remember...

90s kids

I was born in the 90s so I feel insulted.

Rule 34

When you search for something without the tags "porn" or "rule34", you ALWAYS get porn instead of good fanart.

Searching for "Operating System Designs", but what I got is porn pics of TTG Starfire. That is mismatch and disgusting!

I was trying to find a Pokémon comic that was funny but on a video it showed a naked girl with a charizard molesting her. I hate stuff like that.

Also... Making rule 34 of real people will not be tolerated.

Incest fanart

Self-explanatory. This is mind-numbing, disgusting and stupid, even worse than usual porn (Yeah, that's possible!).

Porn is not just showing intimate parts. This is about anything which as has focus on intimate parts, hidden or not, positions implying flirting or worse sexual activity, or characters stupidly getting shipped for someone's fetishes, or even characters shy because of their body in a situation where there are not even any implications. I learned that almost every artist that focuses on gender shapes, especially women's, has links to NSFW (so no need to check), as they write themselves in the description. And if that behaviour repeats itself, all hope for the artist is lost.

Porn is EXTREME BASTARDISATION of humanity, likable characters and real people in many behavioural aspects. It cretinises both the viewer and the artist.

Landscape artists and photographs are mostly safe :), but everything else is a minefield, especially fanart concerning popular ...more

This dominates Frozen and Big Hero 6 art search results. No, one of the siblings being dead in the latter does not stop the incestuous shipping.

Incest cross all the lines! It's just a big no no even in art

This problem has The Loud House written all over it.

"Please reply to this comment I need to keep my profile clean, so don't leave a new comment above"

FR why does everyone have that in their comment section?!
