About hackers on DA and what you can doEdit: It seems this journal is receiving some unusual attention lately and I assume is because of a new recent exploit (which btw seems to be solved already), so I added an aditional point on the list of things you can do to reinforce your account, continue reading : )About hackers on DA and what you can do9 months ago in Gossip More Like This
Lately I've seen some jornals here and there spreading a rumor about a hacker loose on DA, the journal, directly copy-pasted reads:
"Apparently there's a hacker going around, hacking peoples accounts, and blocking YOUR friends so that they block YOU. You then get in trouble and banned from DA.
If you read this warning, care about those around you, you will spread this word, tell everyone so you aren't this guy's next victim. ALSO, If I block or say something to you that isn't appropriate for NO REASON, it's not me.

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by $techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

In celebration of the rapidly approaching 2000 Member Milestone, #PayPal-Commissioners will be holding a contest, as per the results of this poll.
Theme: "Working From Minimal Detail"
More often than we realize, artists are faced with "that one client" who either can not or will not provide you enough detail for you to confidently work. Most of the time, artists can really take these details and run with them, creating beautiful and meaningful works of art from a few simple, often generic, traits.
We realize that not every artist's area of expertise is in humanoids. We will provide three sets of details. One for animal forms, one for anthropomor

What comes to mind when you hear the name Pablo Picasso? That’s right, it’s time to break it down, Cubism-style! For the first time ever, we are hosting a Messenger Bag Design Challenge! We want you to create an original design for the flap of the bag in the style of Cubism.
For this challenge, we are defining Cubism as an art style in which instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from multiple viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often, the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create a shallow ambiguous space.
Your design should appear on the flap of the bag (below the zipper), using only <
