I’ve just started experimenting with carbonmade, an online portfolio site, to expose some of my photography. Compared to DeviantArt, it is far simpler to upload imagery, and it provides an elegant way to organize your material, whether a static image or a video. Storage is far more limited than with DA, and appears to be more difficult to link the images to other sites (I was only able to get the image above displayed by digging through the page source), so it isn’t ideal to host images. It is really intended to be a focused tool to expose your very best work
If you’re a visual artist, and you’re looking for a means to expose your work online, this is an option worth looking into.
