Reposting art on Tumblr and other sitesLike most tumblr artists, I have a huge issue with reposting art. Reposting, if you don’t already know, means just uploading the image from your own dash and making it into a new post, making your blog the source of the post. This is not acceptable in any way! Just recently I’ve had so many instances where people just take my art in general or WYDPAW (Walking your dog in a post-apocalyptic world) images and repost them.Reposting art on Tumblr and other sites1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why is this harmful? It’s because you are directly impacting the traffic the owner of said content, and I am especially upset in the case of WYDPAW because I want all the sources to direct back to the actual graphic novel so people can follow! Like most creators of online comics or graphic novels, I put a lot of effort into this thing I’m working on and want it to have as much exposure as possible through my own original source. It doesn’t make it any more justified or legal if you add credit in the tags or
Lots of bitching...I haven't been on DA all that much lately due to work commitments, but it seems like every time I log on here people are bitching about this, bitching about that.Lots of bitching...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Look, at the end of the day, this site provides a service. You can choose to pay for it, or you can choose to not pay for it. It works either way. If you really don't like it, not only should you not pay for it, but don't use it. No one is forcing you to.
It seems like a lot of people seem to think that being a member of this site gives them ownership of it. It doesn't. Be grateful it exists. Be happy that it is (now) profitable. For a long time it wasn't. The people who work on it deserve to make some money - they work hard.
If you don't agree with any of this, I think you're lacking in perspective. There's nothing keeping you here if you don't want to be. I think DA does a great job of listening to a vast community and trying to make changes to please it's members. It can't be incredibly dynamic and flexible to accomodate e
How I became an artistI just posted up a long (and I mean LONG) post on how I became an artist, including about 150 images made over the last 12 years.

Depthcore XLIII - 'TIME'The Depthcore Collective is proud to release it's 43rd themed chapter exhibition, "TIME". As we near our 10th anniversary, this seems to be an appropriate subject for us as a collective to reflect upon. Ten years have passed by, and the students and teenagers who once populated the group are gone, replaced by full time freelance artists, independent small-business owners and focussed creative professionals. Finding the time (oh, the puns are endless with this theme) to create these Chapters has become increasingly difficult.Depthcore XLIII - 'TIME'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And yet, here we are, with one of our largest collections in the past few years. It certainly came together slowly - after the excitement of our presentation at OFFF and our first exhibition here in New York City the come down from the highs of travelling and showing to the reality of starting over to create a
The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )
