Top Ten Worst Types of Deviantart Artwork


The Top Ten

1 Porny fanart

Sorry but not everyone wants to see Chica and Foxy doing those "stuff" together. - SamuiNeko

I agree. I have a Deviantart account and this bothers me. I once saw a picture of a Butt and Mature content was off! How rude! - LeafpoolLover

I hate these kinds of fanbases. - Powerfulgirl10

2 Artwork that ships the artist with a character

Like, it's fine if you do it alone without posting it for the world to see. - SansTheComic

Or when they ship themselves with a real person isn't better..

YES. I hate it when people do that.

I cringe when people ship themself with jayfeather :3 - LeafpoolLover

3 Smutty fan-fictions
4 Pictures that have everything in their keywords
5 Inflation fanart

Please, keep your sick fetishes to yourself.

I hate inflation fan art! It's disgusting and weird! I just wanted to look up Wigglytuff for crying out loud! - Powerfulgirl10

Why does this exist.

Please stop drawing characters into very ballon-ish body shapes,it has no reasons to exist. - SamuiNeko

6 Pictures that should have mature filters while they don't

So true. They deserve mature filters. - Powerfulgirl10


Think about it,you're finding your OTP fan art,but then,you accidentally wondered in to your NOTP having sex! - SamuiNeko

People who have study and done art can tell you that there are a lot of photos on deviant art that don't count as nude art, and are actually pornography. They can look at it and see what the picture is trying to send to it's viewers.

Pornography and nude art aren't the same thing. Since the intention of the pornographer and artist are very different. A sexual picture wants you to feel aroused, and a nude art is to appreciate it's form and beauty.

Nude or not it should still be put under mature filters, and some people need to stop using nude art as an excuse for their pornography, since deviant art is about ACTUAL ART.

7 Fetish artwork
8 Hate art/fiction
9 Whiny fictions
10 Child porn fanart

Wait, this actually exists?

Now you see why aliens won't visit us.

That is not acceptable. I seriously wish people wouldn't do that.

Oh yeah there's plenty of those! - SamuiNeko

I'm seriously surprised they haven't moved this type of artwork to the Dark Web. - Aragorn98

The Contenders

11 Vore

I dislike vore strongly. It's unrealistic, it makes no sense, it's fetish, it's disgusting, and it's just somebody swallowing another character whole. Should be much higher. - Powerfulgirl10

You know why people hate it, but let's just say it's unrealistic. - Swellow

Here's the true reality of vore: Your internal organs would be crushed and your THROAT doesn't have enough space to fit a living, breathing HUMAN. - Vestalis

Oh. my.. god! vore is so disgusting! why are people into this!? if someone got swallowed in real life, they'll die of stomach acid or suffocation! it's worser than the others! who ever came up with this idea! I'll find that person and kill him!

13 Religious artwork

There is nothing wrong with it. - SamuiNeko

I'd rather look at this than fetish/child porn fanart.

Episaclly if it is putting down the devil! I HATE IT!

14 Terrible anime drawings
15 Diaper Fetish

Nobody wants to see their favorite characters in a dirty diaper! It's disgusting! - Powerfulgirl10

Oh jesus christ, it's disgusting. - FrancescoBertini

I keep seeing almost every character I google in diaper..
Especially Cynthia from Pokemon, T.K from Digimon and a lot more

16 Horrible fan art that has tons of comments

Adventure time... - SamuiNeko

5 minute crap

17 MS Paint

MS paint art can be really beautiful, Andrew Hussie used this to create homestuck. And the way he draws the sky with it is amazing. - SamuiNeko

18 Dragons

Dragon OCs can be made perfectly, but yeah, tracing or recoloring is a big issue. - Swellow

What is it with dragons on DeviantArt? It's like I can't go anywhere without seeing an avatar that is just a Cynder recolor.

19 Recolors

I agree. I dislike recolors because of the lack of originality.

Not all recolors are terrible. The rainbow ones are the worst, though. - Swellow

20 Stolen Art

Stealing art from other artists and claiming them as your own is never acceptable.

21 Out of Character

It bugs me when fanfic writers and artists make characters go out of character for the sake of their fantasies or crossover fetishes. Why can't you accept your favorite fictional characters the way they are and not what you want them to be? Knuckles the Echidna (Sonic the Hedgehog) is smart and not stupid, Miles "Tails" Prower (Sonic the Hedgehog) is helpful and not useless, Karel (Fire Emblem) is a good guy and not a villain, and the list keeps going and going...

22 Incest fanart
23 Barney Fanart


24 The Loud House Memes
25 Crossover Art

While some crossovers are based on a game, movie or whatnot of the crossover genre (i.e. Super Smash Bros., Mario and Sonic), or that can be good if made properly, it still bothers me when people cross one series or character over with another if it's based on looks, or "they have something in common" as their excuse for "it makes sense". It's worse if they support crossover pairings; which never make sense because it's like kissing some random stranger and that isn't good behavior, whatsoever. It is the absolute worst if one of the series represented in the crossover is Kingdom Hearts, or anything that has to do with it.

26 Tracing, and Traced Bases

Whatever happened to originality? References are fine, but tracing over someone else's artwork is never okay.

27 Giantess Art

No SBE, I do not want to see you draw "The Attack of the 50 foot Shenzi", thank you.

28 Politics

Politics is not the most G-rated thing to talk about, yet it has become a heated topic on deviantArt and everyone is going against each other for it...

29 Muscle Growth

Muscles can be aesthetically amazing if you put them on the right character, but the worst thing is people who overdose on muscle growth. It killed off the anthro side of me.

Basically it's a human, OC or video game character becoming extremely buff (to the point it defies anatomy) until the only thing they wear is skin tight briefs. It's the opposite of weight gain or inflation, if not, worse. It's mainly male, but there's sadly female as well.

Easily the worst though is the OC side. Seriously, put clothes on, let alone a shirt. It's mainly anthro male bodybuilders having an attraction to the other one. I don't mind males liking males, but these people will ship every character who has something over a six pack.

I don't mind extremely buff characters, but please, lower down on the fetish-y crap and learn diversity. - Swellow

30 Grotesque
31 Emo Art
32 Self righteous fan art

Please stop thinking yourself as the best person because you're the only person who hates school or because you defy mainstream. It only makes you look arrogant and annoying. - Swellow
