Any old-fashioned but active art communities left?

No.4067332 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Conceptart has been down for a while, deviantart is practically dead it seems, forums as a concept seem to be fossils and most active artists are on twitter, ig or facebook, but I can't personally stand any of those. Twitter would be better than anything owned by facebook but even then you can't really control your profile layout or just about anything else, let alone keep your data from being mined and sold by the site owners. I miss the days of forums and personal websites.

Somehow, tumblr of all places seems to be the last semi-anonymous, free and networked site where you can code your own blog layout but still have the social media aspect of not being isolated on your own site. And even that's on a shaky ground after the nsfw ban and now it's been sold, which leaves the future uncertain (though I doubt they'll fuck it up more than yahoo managed to, the user numbers have still plummeted).

Are there any community sites that you frequent where you can connect to other artists, that have sizable and active user base? Sites like artstation seem pretty impersonal and mostly gallery-oriented and require phone numbers or facebook connections (ugh). I'm looking for some sweetspot between exposure to a community that's not just running numbers like how many likes you get, something like deviantart and conceptart were in their heyday. Maybe that's just a pipedream these days or I'm just wearing nostalgia goggles, but I hope we make it back to whatever the hell we had before the modern social media hell.

Desktop computer recommendations

No.4071072 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I've been using a 2011 iMac and an Intuos 3 for quite a while now. I'm perfectly satisfied with my tablet, but my computer has been having some issues lately.

So I'm looking to buy a new desktop computer for digital art, mostly photoshop and some ZBrush. PC or mac, I don't care. Also a monitor, preferably 27'. Keep it all under 4000$.

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice. We should not have to make new threads or post in the /draw/thread with our fundamental exercises.

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, or you literally are never going to make it

TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

For those that draw traditional, what kind of scanner works best for you? I'm thinking about buying a flat bed scanner but not sure what would best.
