What is considered copyright infringement?Due to the growing concern...I have had a lot of people ask me what is considered piracy and what isn't. Things to consider is the Millenium Copy Right act and fair use laws. Funny enough a while back I would have liked a law like SOPA because it would hold a site liable for letting its users plagiarize my artwork. E.g a while back a group on Facebook took my work and refused to credit me, I contacted Facebook and they said they would remove the work, then the admins of the page said they would change it to a private setting so I couldn't access the site and see if my work was still being used without my permission. SOPA would have been useful but now I see that with such power as to hold an entire site liable for a bunch of users actions is dangerous because it can be abused. Also how would you feel if someone like me closed down a huge public web site because a few where taking something of mine? I have learned not to care when my stuff is uploaded elsewhere and shared. I don't mindWhat is considered copyright infringement?4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Quick cosplay shout out!!!In the past few months since it's been convention season, I've had a number of people send me pics cosplaying as some of the Disney princesses from my gallery. Words cannot describe how flattering it is to see people inspired to invest time to dress up as something you drew, so thanks so much for all the photo submissions this year! Since I'm from Atlanta, our big convention here is Dragon Con so I have to give a quick shout out to fellow Deviant manderbeez! She sent me these pictures because her and her friends were inspired by my illustration series and each did their own mash-up for Dragon Con this year. They look awesome!

Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!On Saturday, June 14, 2009, deviantART held a deviantMEET at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park. Over 350 deviants showed up to celebrate all things deviantART, setting a record for the highest attended deviantMEET in history in the process... until now.Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Almost exactly three years later -- on Saturday, June 30, 2012 -- at the same location in Hyde Park, London deviants once again turned up in droves. Smashing the previous record, our London deviantMEET 2012 saw over 550 deviants throughout the day.
Most deviantMEETs include a group photo, usually taken towards the end of the event's festivities. However, we wasted no time taking our group shot in front of the Albert Memorial, as we wanted to ensure we were complying with Hyde Park's rules and regulations for large gatherings. With a group this massive -- and awesome -- it's hard not to draw attention!

Abusive Artist Relationships [Are you in one?]Ask yourself these following questions to see if you are in an abusive relationship with an artist you watch on Deviantart/Tumblr/Whatever!Abusive Artist Relationships [Are you in one?]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do you dread checking your messages on a daily basis knowing you may see a journal about them which contains some form of verbal bashing that is indirectly pointed towards you? (i.e. "Fuck all you guys")
2. Do you worry yourself sick when they post short journals saying about how they're sick of life with the subtle indication they may be considering suicide? (i.e. "fuck this I'm so done." "i can't do this anymore" "bye.")
3. Do you find yourself responding to each of these trying to comfort them only to be completely unacknowledged?
4. Do they constantly post vents with suicidal hints with disabled comments?
5. Do they respond to what you have to say shortly and curtly without any consideration for your feelings? "whatever" or "why should I care what you say lol"
6. Do you find yourself completely tired of the artist's attitude towards everythi
to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better. I promise you. I promise.to all the people who have ever considered suicide3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The 9 Problems with BEAUTY AND THE BEASTLet me start by saying: Beauty and the Beast is my favorite film of all time.The 9 Problems with BEAUTY AND THE BEAST3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But there've always been things that have crossed my mind as being... "not quite right."
I'm not complaining about the film, only asking the obvious question of: how is this possible?
1. The vanishing king and queen!
Lumiere says in "Be Our Guest" that for... "Ten years we;ve been rusting..." So where are the Prince's parents? To BE a prince it implies you HAVE parents (a King and Queen) but at the end of the movie, during the movie, and at the beginning of the movie there is no sign of his parents.
2. The Prince is Uncharacteristic!
At the beginning of the movie it shows the Prince at the castle door turning the beggar woman away...but isn't the Prince in a household FULL of servants? Why didn't one of them answer the castle door that night? If the intro is correct at the Prince's behavior, being "spoiled, selfish, and unkind" why would the Prince take time out of his day to answe

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

Answer the following questions from the guy's perspective (or, in the case of same sex couples, the one who wears the pants in the relationship or whoever you want to go first )
1. What exactly was it about your partner that you're attracted to?
I really love how different she is from most girls. She honestly scared the living hell out of me at first, but in the best possible way of course. She also has a wonderful sense of humor- her sarcasm is very refreshing.
2. So, here's a scenario for you: some guy is hitting relentlessly on your significant other? What do you do?
uhm... I...I don't... I wouldn't...be...happy... I might... er... go up to the fellow and make him feel uncomfortable... I can do that...
3. Where did they take their significant other to on their first date?
We never really had a first date. As you may know, our circumstances aren't exactly normal. But I su

Humans that have monsters living inside of them, though some of them no longer even look human. The monsters in them use them for the purpose of cleansing the wold of humans. Villains have the unique ability to control monsters - Members will start with three monsters and can earn more minions by completing missions or using Lume to buy them. Members that choose this class can expect unusual planning missions of sabotage against Collectors and raging battles against the Knight class.

Tutorial Showcase #8DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal.

Inspired ArtI once thought that you should "paint what you know". Each artist has a unique background from which we can draw from. This is a sure way to create art with authentic detail and intimacy. In theory this is great and sometimes true, but more often than not it leads to boring and uninspired work. To simply paint what you know, is far too limiting!Inspired Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now I am of the opinion that you should create the art that you would like to see. The real thrill is in exploring these new horizons, and blazing your own trail. For me, this is vital to the enjoyment of being an artist. Allow your art to surprise you, and let inspiration be your guide.
