There's a lot of deviations on the front page that I check out just so I can read the comments.
A lot of users seem to think they can define what is art and what isn't, and this never fails to infuriate me.
Have these people ever been to any art galleries? A lot of popular modern art looks like it's been drawn by 5 year olds in 5 minutes, while classical art all looks exactly the same. Maybe they should go visit some museums and start shouting "not art, herp derp" until they get thrown out.
If stuff you don't like makes the front page, it means there's an audience for that sort of stuff, in which case you should be blaming DeviantArt's user base rather than insulting the artists. Funnily enough, unoriginal Pokemon and Pony crap doesn't get as much hate as a lot of nude stuff. I wonder why. (*coughpersonalinsecuritiescough*)
Wikipedia's definition of art is: "Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (often with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and affects one or more of the senses, emotions, and intellect. "
By that definition crap art is possibly the best art of all, because it makes people really mad!
But this meaning is too vague for my liking, and it's horribly subjective, since everyone can feel differently about a given work of art.
Keeping in mind that a lot of people believe in a God of some kind, pretty much /everything/ could be considered art since it was deliberately created by Her.
On the other hand, DeviantArt's definition of art is: "Everything that's on this site and doesn't break the rules."
I like this one since it's simple.
Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, I don't think anyone on here has any right to complain about what is art and what isn't.
Anyone who does is just looking for an excuse to be an asshole.
tl;dr: Stop being jelly that you're not on front page.
