If you’re an adult artist who has been displaced by Tumblr’s recent purge of adult content, Affect3D has an announcement just for you! Starting this weekend we’ve started the closed beta for Slushe.com, a new art site specifically designed for adult artists. Akin to sites like DeviantArt and Tumblr, Slushe is a place for artists to upload and share their work with the world. The big difference? Slushe allows adult content with very few restrictions. So whether you work in 2D or 3D, make fan art or OC furries, your work is almost certainly welcome at Slushe and that’s the whole point of the site… To give adult artists a home.
We’ve already got a number of 3DX artists on board and are now welcoming other artists to register for access in the coming week. All you need to do is register at the beta site and we’ll get you online as soon as we can. Invites are currently being sent out in waves, so if you don’t receive a follow up right away don’t panic! We’ll be in contact as soon as we’re able.
(Please note, the site is in closed beta because it is still being finalized. We pushed it public a bit earlier in response to Tumblr’s adult content purge, so there’s still some work to be done. If you are not interested in interacting with occasional bugs or a changing user interface, simply hold off on registering until we open public beta. Users registering now, however, will be able to contribute more to perfecting the version of the site that goes to public beta.)
Fans and other general users will be welcome on Slushe in the future as well, but we ask that they refrain from registering now so we can focus on artist features first. There are a number of fan features we’ll test later, which will be the perfect time for general users to join. Anyway, we’ll have more information about everything in the coming weeks. Until then we hope to see you sign up at Slushe!
