Use as you wish :)I get a lot of people who ask me various questions about usage of my art- Here is my stance on the matter. I really don't mind if you want to use any of my pictures (unless they are commissions, which are labeled).
This includes use as signatures, avatars, original stories, etc., as long as you credit and link back, and as long as you don't intend to make any profit from the use of my artwork.
I also don't mind if you want to use any of my pictures as references for drawing/redrawing (although you can probably find much better work out there to reference ), and if I have any sketches or line arts up at any point, you can color them as you please. You don't need to ask my permission for any of these things, but I would like a link (you can even just post it here in the comments section) so I can see how/where you are using my work
I know I don't see all the notes that I get, and I try to make sure I read all my comments but rarely get to respond back to them, but I always fe

Well, first a little explanation : lately, I want to draw, sadly I'm really, really, really tired. Tiredness simply kill my imagination, you have no idea. This is why I spend a lot of my free time to read and play video games, because this is the only thing I'm good at (when I'm not taking a nap...).
So, I had this idea : would you like to give me subjects to draw, like your original characters ? ^_^

post references on this journal about your favourite original character (please no characters from anime/games... I want YOUR character)
A female character please ... !

I won't tell you if I draw your character or not.
I also won't tell you if it will be a black and white picture or a watercolor~
I don't have a minimum or a maximum of artworks I want to draw,

* A Guide to Reporting Art Theft *I copied this from :iconthe-Nutkase:'s journal entry because I thought this was a really good guide on how to deal with art theft. I hope that it helps you guys too* A Guide to Reporting Art Theft *2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"I've seen quite a few cases of art theft recently (involving both my work and other's), and I think it's about time I help out somehow.
So I made this small guide to dealing with art theft. If your art/your friend's art has been stolen, follow this guide and you'll settle matters quickly and easily.
Important point to consider
NEVER comment on the stolen artwork or the userpage of the art thief. More often than not, people comment saying things that are as harsh as possible and are completely inappropriate. Yes, 9 times out of 10 the "artist" is just a troll messing with people, but if you don't watch what you comment, you CAN be warned/reported for harassment. Keep that in mind.
The exception to this rule is if the stolen art is being sold somehow, of which a comment will discourage people from buy

A. That does sound like a comforting thought, though I really don't see it happening.

The hype over this isn't unwarranted. We've all been spooked before by things like SOPA and other assorted things of that nature. Those were pinned as hoaxes even though they were legit, just not nearly as substantial as people thought.
Although it sounds like some more kind of hokum pokum put out to scare people, this isn't a new set of knives aimed at artists. The same 'Orphaned Works Act' was put before congress 2 times a few years ago and failed/flopped. There's no doubt they're going to attempt the same thing eventually.
The Traditional Through a Cracked PrismCreating art for those who feel a real resonance with traditional anchoring fairy tales, ~cidaq also draws in those who enjoy darker tales of mystery and films noir. As a storyteller who can create narratives in both words and watercolors, she often comes up with short stories to accompany her art.The Traditional Through a Cracked Prism4 years ago in Personal More Like This

cidaq’s paintings are unique and instantly identifiable as hers —
Even though at first glance one might think them antique illustrations preserved from century-old
products advertisements or children’s books. But one is drawn to look closer and see that a very

Pay the PayPal FeesHave you seen someone take commissions with the following in their terms: you must pay the PayPal fee (calculate it at a site like http://www.ppcalc.com)?Pay the PayPal Fees4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every time I run across someone with those terms, I tell them this is against PayPal's terms of service. Some respond 'oh, okay' and remove it, others argue with me and say it's not against their terms. One person has said they will refuse to work on the commission unless I do pay the fees.
I contacted PayPal directly regarding this to get final word on whether this is a violation or not.
Here is my question:
When I am shopping online, I often see people have a rule that if you pay with PayPal, you have to calculate the "paypal fee" and add that on top of the price of the product or service. Some people will refuse to ship or work if they do not receive the "full amount" (without the paypal fee added in).
Is it against the paypal terms of service for these people to do this? What should I tell them

Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,

With that said I am going to list my own personal headcanon's for Claude here that will be referred to quite often in role plays where something like this would be the only likely answer. I am doing this as it will makes things easier for me and other parties involved when role plays concerning this unknown are concerned and shall be in effect so long as I am the administrator of this account so without further adieu I give you the list to refer to when something of the unknown variety comes up.((Headcanons))5 months ago in Personal More Like This
