“Save Your Money!”

Written on: 22/08/2016 by Artlady100 (1 review written)

When I first started out painting I stumbled upon this site and thought the reviews would help me improve. However, it didn't take long to figure out the site is about how much money they can squeeze out of you. If you post a painting/ photograph you will receive two reviews for "free". If you want more reviews you will have to pay. The site guarantees a certain number of views per dollar you are willing to spend. In addition, people earn points/dollars for reviewing your work thus earning… Read Full Review

“Time and Money Trap”

Written on: 24/05/2016 by YazminHancock371 (1 review written)

I've been on FAR for a little over 3-years. There are many aspects of the site I enjoy (i.e., social interaction, new friends, light humor etc.) And I will admit I feel my photography has improved from the simple fact the site encourages you to take pictures daily / regularly to sufficiently participate in both ranking and contest offerings(you will find yourself getting a lot of practice) Albeit - make no mistake, this site is all about your money. Pay for membership and pay for each image… Read Full Review

“The same group works together to maintasin their...”

Written on: 24/05/2016 by Timmonsie120 (1 review written)

The problem with Fan Art Review is that the same people continuously submit sub standard photos and yet the photos will be rated high by the same members who are in concert with one another, ensuring that the closed group remains at or near the top of the leader rankings. It is relatively predictable who will vote for who and give ratings often out of proportion to the quality of the submitted photo. Several of these individuals are on the "Committee" that decides which works are chosen for… Read Full Review

“Be Careful How and Who You Review ”

Written on: 03/05/2016 by Trevino117 (1 review written)

I've only been on this site a couple of days, but already I'm noticing a trend. Some of the people on this site are extremely touchy about receiving ANY criticism whatsoever - no matter how kindly you put it. I think the site is geared towards earning "rankings", etc. so you can be on top, regardless of whether your work is really good or not. Honest criticism of work seems to be discouraged simply because of the system in place. I wish I'd known it was like this before making a membership… Read Full Review

“ExceEnjoy It”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by Janet479 (1 review written)

I stumbled onto this website by accident last March and decided to try it out. I was surprised at the feedback that I received. I love the contests - people seem to really want to help. My only thought is that the site can be a little confusing at first. But once you get the hang of things it's easy enough. The contests challenge me to try new things. Buyers often contact me about work I have for sale and I have new customers as a result! I never planned to make sales, but put my work up… Read Full Review

“Excellent”

Written on: 14/10/2014 by Sorenk376 (1 review written)

You can share your photos and artwork. Everything you post will receive feedback. I enjoy the contests. There are many contests to choose from including a weekly challenge. Selling your work is straight-forwad. When you post your work you are prompted for the details (price, type, etc...) and the sale is made via PayPal (similar to ebay). I recommend this site to anyone looking to get into photography or art… Read Full Review

“I Enjoy It”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by SidneyLyon24 (1 review written)

When I started looking to share my photos, just over two years ago, FanArtReview was the place I chose to share my photos. From my very first post, I started learning. The feedback was eye opening. I had hoped to be an immediate success; I quickly realized this was going to be hard work, and I had a lot to learn. I now feel confident in my abilities. The reviewers have helped me. I enjoy the feedback but also have met many wonderful people that share my love of art. The contests are fun and… Read Full Review

“Disillusioned”

Written on: 10/03/2014 by aventador (2 reviews written)

I've been a member of Fanatreview for a few months now and have become very disillusioned with the site. I only upload photographs so this review is based solely on photography. Firstly there are some talented people on the site that do offer good advice and tips. I would be lying if I stated otherwise. The problem I find is that the reviews are purely generated by how many member dollars you offer to a reviewer. You buy member dollars to promote your work. This basically equates to how far you… Read Full Review

Chubbychopsx2's Response to aventador's Review

Written on: 01/10/2014

I would like to say that I have been on the site for 3 years. During this time I have grown in my photographic skills thanks to the guidance of some talented artists. It is not a perfect site. The photographs are mediocre however, we all start from somewhere and the artist's on this site all have a love for the craft. You can turn FAR into your own vehicle for growth. The camaradarie cannot be beat and I will stay with this site until I feel I can no longer learn anything new - (don't think that will ever happen).

Aventador's reply to Chubbychopsx2's Comment

Written on: 01/11/2014

Some good points Chubbychops, but a lot of reviewers stay mediocre and don't seem to improve or don't appear to take any advice. Some reviews are laughable when you look at the standard of work from the reviewer. A site for paid, false critiques I'm afraid and how many more times can people write "great initial impact"!!

Yocal's reply to Aventador's Comment

Written on: 05/05/2016

Again, got to agree with you 100%, Aventador! You can tell which reviewers have been on the site for a long time, because all their reviews say basically the same thing - "great initial impact", blah, blah, blah - like they're in a zombie state of mind! If all you want is people saying only nice things about your work, instead of offering you TRUE constructive criticism to help you reach beyond your current level of work, then by all means, go and get your ego stroked and enjoy the FALSE sense of self-esteem you will experience. But you'd better not go to art school like I did - there you can expect to have your work ripped to shreds - but I wouldn't trade that experience for the phony one this site offers for anything!

Yocal's Response to aventador's Review

Written on: 05/05/2016

I completely agree with your review. After just a few days on this site, I completely regret my year membership purchase. This is really a phony site in terms of honest feedback and honest rankings. Already I see some of the most amateur works getting undo recognition - basically because they've "bought" their way to the top. True professional artists and photographers won't waste their time with this site. Yes - you can earn "member dollars" by doing reviews - but you'll soon find out that the system is rigged so that you have to do more and more to earn less and less. One person who's been on the site awhile finally experience "FanArt fatigue" after spending hours and hours doing reviews to earn less and less member dollars, and he is finally leaving. I will be leaving after just a few days, seeing what this site is REALLY about - the owner making as many bucks as he can at the expense of a lot of amateur artists with false pride who just want their egos stroked - whatever it costs them. I feel sorry for them, because without TRUE criticism, one cannot push beyond their comfort level to become a better artist. But then again, I'm not sure they really care about becoming a better artist as much as they do just "getting to the top". I wish now I'd given this site a one star instead of the overly-generous three star rating I gave it.

Deborah.r's Response to aventador's Review

Written on: 27/03/2016

I completely agree with your review concerning FAR. I admit, the few reviews I have received have been helpful, yet, your reviews generate from possibly profession photographers. Meanwhile, I don't think their reviews concerning other forms of art is accurate, This place could use some constructive reviews. FAR isn't about the individual. Reviews can be harsh and distasteful. In my opinion, FAR focus is about how many fish they can catch. (money)

I wanted to share that I have found FanArtReview to be the best place for creativity and mastering one's art. In a short period of time, I have learned more on this site, than I had in my entire life-time. The community is very friendly. Filled with smart and and talented members that lend a hand, teach you how to improve, while themselves providing fabulous art and photography to enjoy. The staff is exceptionally helpful whenever I have a question. The site gives everything an artist can… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2013 by fessle24 (1 review written)

I am a long time member. I suggest that if you enjoy photography or art that you participate at Fanartreview. I enjoy the interaction I receive from other artists for my photography. The contests are fun and give me the opportunity to try new techniques with my photography. I am always learning from the reviews that I receive for my posted work. And I can sell my art and photos (without paying a commission) easily. This is an excellent site, easy to use, with a terrific community… Read Full Review

“Check It Out!”

Written on: 16/04/2013 by Osumi (1 review written)

I recommend that photographers try Fanartreview. I did, several years back, and am very happy that I did. I have learned more from Fanartreview then I every expected. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help. I enjoy the contests and learning new techniques. I have also sold my photos. While not the centra feature of the site there are art buyers and advanced free features that you can use to put your work up for sale. As you grow a fan base this becomes more prevalent. This site is… Read Full Review

I joined several years back and really appreciate the help I have received. My skills have greatly approved. This would not be happening if it had not been for everyone that has reviewed my art. Joining Fanartreview, was THE best thing I have done, not only because of how much I have learned, but because I have met some really amazing people on it. I recommend Fanartreview to anyone that enjoys photography or artwork… Read Full Review

“Great for the contests”

Written on: 16/04/2013 by beachgrharp (1 review written)

Fanartreview promises contests and they do deliver. There are so many contests to choose from. I enjoy the contests (although I don't win many). Win or not, they inspire me to try different techniques and approach new topics with my photography. You get feedback for your contest entries (and non contest entries) which is unique. The reviews let you know what the reviewers think about what you have shared for the contests. The site has many features, too numerous to name here, but you do get a… Read Full Review

I have been a member of the Fanartreview community for just over a year. I'm amazed at how posting my work here has significantly improved my photography skills. It's vital to receive unbiased feedback, corrections and suggestions, and I've made some great friendships. Through both posting and reviewing the work of others, I've learned what works and what doesn't… Read Full Review

I joined Fanartreview initially because of the contests. But in the years I have been a member I have found much more. This site has a wonderful community of photographers, artists and art lovers. It's kinda like Facebook for artists but with many more features. When you post your art you get feedback on it. It's great to know what others think of my work. The reviewers are always kind and supportive. And I look forward to finishing a piece so I can see what others think. This has motivated… Read Full Review

“Recommended By Long Time Member”

Written on: 15/04/2013 by longtimemember09787 (1 review written)

I joined Fanartreview four years ago. I recommend it to my friends that enjoy photography or are artists. It offers artists and photographers a place to share their art with artists from around the world. More importantly, you are put in touch with artists (and art buyers). I have learned so much (and continue to learn) from other photographers. My skills have improved so much. The site has a rating scale (from 1 to 7) that is used to judge posts. Those reviews go towards a ranking. So your… Read Full Review

“I greatly enjoy Fanartreview”

Written on: 15/04/2013 by myphotos20387 (1 review written)

I am really enjoying being able to show other artists my photos and to be getting feedback. Other artists often point out things that I would never have thought of. The feedback I get gives me the incentive, which i sometimes lose, to continue with my art. I do like to paint as well but am still learning (I still share my art though). I love looking at what other people are submitting and the creativity that is out there. I agree with everyone here. If you enjoy art or photography this site… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2016

Totally agree with you! I notice many of these reviews were written in 2013 - I joined in 2016, and I regret it! This is one of the phoniest review sites I've ever seen. If you have a lot of bucks in your pocket, you're sure to make it to the top, even if your work is not good - which much of the work is, sad to say. Although I also want to make clear that there are some really exceptional artists and photographers on the site - but many of them do not get the recognition they truly deserve, awards going instead to amateurish work on the site. I will be leaving shortly before I get too hooked into reviewing to earn less and less towards "member dollars". This site has to do more with how much MONEY you have to spend, and much less with how good your work is.
