Autodesk has invested $10 million in the Los Angeles-based digital art community Deviantart. Word about the investment first got out in September, but an SEC filing now adds further details, showing that Autodesk invested a total of $10.04 million in the company.
The amount was confirmed by an Autodesk spokesperson Wednesday. The investment makes Autodesk the biggest investor in Deviantart.
Deviantart is one of the oldest communities of its kind on the web. The site, which was founded all the way back in 2000, is offering users a space to upload and showcase photos, drawings and other types of digital art. The site attracts 65 million unique visitors per month and has a total of 29 million registered users, which upload over 160,000 pieces of art every day.
