Massive Art Theft From dA and FA ArtistsI felt this was important enough to make an article out of. This is something I received through Tumblr and dutifully passed along. I am trying to spread the word about this massive theft case.Massive Art Theft From dA and FA Artists2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Here's the quoted text:
They are stealing artworks from all over DeviantArt and FurAffinity, then posting them as paintings on canvas with huge price tags. Please please check to see if anything of yours has been taken, and file a DMCA with the sites host.
Please pass this on so we can get this disgusting thing shut down.

Petra's photos often have interesting and thought provoking meanings hidden within them. This is especially noticeable in the photos produced during her recently completed A is for Alphabet Project!

Submit to deviantART Directly From SketchBook AppsDeviantART is proud to announce that SketchBook users on iPad and Android tablets now have the ability to create and submit art directly from their devices to deviantART!Submit to deviantART Directly From SketchBook Apps21 hours ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Our recent partnership with Autodesk has allowed deviantART to become the first community integrated into SketchBook -- the professional-grade painting app that is easy to use for every artist. Merging these two powerhouse environments means that tablet users will be able to publish their creations from SketchBook directly to their deviantART accounts. Deviants will also be able to use the app to browse the inspirational works of other SketchBook artists in the %autodesk-sketchbook group.
This is a first step in what will become a much fuller integration that will bring more deviousness to SketchBook and add a powerful creation tool to the arsenals of deviant artists everywhere, as we welcome new SketchBook users into the deviantART community.

DA Lit : Who We AreI am proud to be exclusively a literature artist. I really don't know how to do anything else. Here on DA, Literature is not necessarily under appreciated by most of the people in the community, it is just widely ignored. I think, really, many of us are completely okay with that. For the most part, we aren't here for popularity.DA Lit : Who We Are2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One ~monstroooo, ~ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.
We are a community of our own. There are many groups here on DA that inspire writ
Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... ~scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh
Join a SOPA and PIPA debate What are SOPA and PIPA?Join a SOPA and PIPA debate2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.

human natureive been noticing far too much lately that people are hating on the human race - guys, i know it can be discouraging what with the things that we hear, but contrary to what the media likes us to think most people are gentle well-meaning things who are often insecure and sometimes their insecurity manifests itself in negative ways. they are not meaning to be malevolent, they are sometimes just misguided and confused, and very likely frustrated. unfortunately people after this strain unintentionally make their feeling of insecurity and pessimism infectious, and the pattern continues in this way unless it is broken.human nature4 months ago in Personal More Like This
i do not mean to sound like a hippy who professes of a world without any violence or displeasure (as both of those things are necessary in moderation), but i would like to highlight the value of communication, understanding, and sympathy even in those who you may not think deserve it. you do not have to like everyone, but it is essential for cooperation that you understa
