    "This online artist community encourages collaboration more than any others. All artwork is completed by the community, as they draw webcomics together one panel at a time. They have weekly drawing themes, leaderboards, and active discussions on their Discord channel"

    "I love the concept of this site, but Artsy just has too much going on that it's overwhelming to use. It's never-ending scrolling with picture after picture after picture, which makes it hard to find what you're interested in. If Artsy cleaned it up, the site would be very useful, but I'll avoid it for now. It's just too distracting. "

    "Pixiv is great...for a specific interest group. If you're an artist that draws anime characters, and you're looking to connect with other people who draw anime characters, then Pixiv is for you. If you're coming to this site looking for anything else, like I was, then you'll be disappointed. If they advertised themselves as a space for this material, I wouldn't rate them so harshly, but as a site for anything other than this narrow group it was really a letdown."

    "wanted to try out the selfie feature, works for me in USA. Fun to see which arts look similar to you, and the information they provide behind the art as well. Not huge into art, but I admire the things you can find on here. Give it a try."
