Easy place to upload quick drawings and sketches to share?

Okay so I binge make art sometimes. Not finished art but cool lil sketches I make. I don’t know what kind of crowd likes unfinished art and doodles. But I love them and feel proud of them a lot. The problem is, I want to upload a lot at a time, maybe one by one or in groups, without having to fill out a complex submission page like FA or deviantART with all the damn categories, folders, tags, and species. Like I can put a few details on it, like what the subject of the pic is, maaaaybe a FEW tags, and a short description. I just want an EASY place to post but I want other people to see and comment. Maybe I have to initiate and specifically ask people to comment, idk. That’s where the furry amino MIGHT work but like.... idk what makes my artwork fearurable. The only way I’ll get lots of traffic is if it’s featured. And I don’t really make lots of finished artwork. I make lots of doodles and I colored sketches. I don’t color a lot. So.... yeah looking for a place that is sketch and doodle friendly. Like I can get featured on front page without a big finished piece. Idk. Maybe like shitposting? Hmmm.... should I post my sketches or art in general on 4chan?? half I do is animals/furry and the other half is anime. I’ve just heard so many bad opinions about furry amino. :/ please lemme know what you think! Where should I post? Can I do it quickly and easily?
Maybe discord too. But idk some channels have posting limits.

Sounds like instagram would work for you. You can post up to 10 images at a time, minimal submission requirements, and a generally good furry community. It's my preferred place to post.

Discord is good if you find a server that's open to art sharing like that, mine has a channel specifically for wips and doodles but I know some art servers that have different standards.

The other is twitter, which I know objectively serves most of those functions also. I just can't vouch for it because I didn't get the hang of it and didn't like the complete lack of privacy.

Hmm... I have twitter and Instagram. I don’t get much comments/messages tho. Should I just start asking for more comments/critiques? Or start icebreaker questions on posts? Nobody really talks to me on IG or Twitter. If I can do that, and be social/get feedback that would be great. I also probably need to make a new Twitter and IG account that’s totally private cause I want to share my NSFW art too. The only thing I have a problem on instagram is that some images I can’t fit because you can only post squares! And idk how to make my wide/tall arts a square so they can fit. I usually can take a screenshot of the pic in my photo gallery but it doesn’t work all the time.

With instagram when I upload photos when selecting them on my tablet the framing can be adjusted buy pinching and adjusting the size. So I do not have any problems with them not being square.

How are you directing traffic to your Twitter/Instagram?

I put links in my signature strip.
If you do this the links have to be to SFW unless the site you are linking to has an age restriction filter in place that meets this forums requirements.

I mean, in my experience you don't really get feedback anywhere unless you have a following. Explicitly asking for feedback is helpful, and on insta, it helps to include a pic asking for feedback since idle scrollers don't put much thought into captions.

Idk about twitter tho, I've heard people like it but I don't use it.

The general rule on the internet is that people are reluctant to post comments, but they love clicking on things.

To add to Asher's comment: you specifically have to build relationships to get feedback on your work. Theres really no quick way to upload. Get some artist friends who give great critique. Be sure to give great critique to others as well when they ask.

^Exactly. If you aren't getting feedback, changing your platform probably won't help. Spend some time looking at others' posts and giving them feedback, and when you post something, they'll feel more inclined to respond to yours.

No like the pinch and zoom is the problem. I pinch and stretch but it won’t let me go any further. If I stretch too far it goes back to its “max” range. Like it won’t let the edges be empty if the pic is really long. Like I can’t fit full body character pictures. Or some I can’t even fit their damn thighs in the pic.
I don’t really direct my traffic much cause I don’t know how to post my link without getting in trouble for shameless self advertising. Idk how and where to do it when it’s allowed. But yeah I’ll make a sig here with my links. :/ and I don’t want to advertise to my family cause some of my stuff I like is innapropriate or offensive. I need to make separate accounts. I hate tracking shit tho... >_<
