"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
I don't do art for acceptance or monetary benefit. I do art because it is one of the only ways I can openly express myself given that my disabilities hamper social interaction. Knowing that hundreds of people around the world view my art on a daily basis via the internet keeps me going.
For better or worse, the internet has changed the arts. More musicians are being heard. More artists' work is being viewed. The internet has changed publishing. Diverse writers whose work would not be read because publishers don't view their work as profitable are now self-publishing via ebooks.
Promoting your own art, music, writing, etc via the internet is no longer a judgement of its quality, but rather its mass-marketability. I'd rather watch a video of someone with mental disabilities singing than some superstar diva using auto-tune. The notes and tone may not be perfect, but the emotion and joy is real.
You no longer have to go to a museum or gallery to view art. You no longer have to rely on someone else to determine what art is for you.
The internet has made art free. The internet has freed art.
