LINK WARNING TO ALL DEVIANTART USERS LINK
deviantART is known for having issues with copyright and even it's own TOS, and this is not a new thing. Lately it seems to have taken a nastier turn, just as the link above shows. I suggest you all to read it carefully and take a moment to think about it.
This case is only one of many, and if they all are handled as poorly (if you can even call that handling rather than ignoring) all I can see is a rather dark future for devinatART. There are so many art theft cases. Art is being stolen, traced, copied, even SOLD FOR MONEY by people who have absolutely no right to those pictures. And how does deviantART react? If you're lucky or persistent enough the staff might take action and remove the stolen piece. But that's it. There are accounts on deviantART that are obviously FUL

Stop. Comparing yourself to others.....is just plain stupid.Stop. Comparing yourself to others1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, conclusion's out, read on if you want about why I know this for a fact.
I thought I was honestly over this whole "comparing-myself-to-others" thing. But no, I wasn't. I'm still human, so I still have some of this to work on.
I realized this when I was with my bf S. He, is like always say, amazing. He is someone I am very proud to be with, but at the same time, from time to time, it gets me and makes me think "Why is someone so awesome like him with someone so who's 'meh'?" I have questioned this to myself and him, and he got more confused. So I left it at that.
But as we watched Wreck it Ralph today (I've always wanted to see it since it came out, but never got to but finally did), and at the end (spoiler if you haven't watched it) Ralph says "I am bad and that's good, I will never be good and that's not bad, there's no one I would rather be than me". This hit me.
I am me and that's good, I will never be someone e
Writing a good Artcrossing profileWriting a good Artcrossing profile3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The basics - writing your first profile
What are the requirements for a profile?
It can be a short or as long as you like, as long as you don't give any links to your dA profile, and provide a few different things to inspire a wide range of artists. However, when writing your profile to join our group, there are some things you need to keep in mind.
It's good to share a bit about yourself and what you can do, but it's more important to share the stuff that you like. Remember that your profile isn't to tell others what you can make and do, but to give them ideas on what to make FOR you. A common problem we have with new profiles is that they say a bit about themselves but don't include any information that the artists who get the profile can use!
For example, if you were to receive a profile like this
Hi! I like to write scary stories, and love drawing pictures of cats. I enjoy listening to music and watching tv, and just
How to Avoid dAramaBelieve it or not, I have no enemies on deviantART. None. I'm not saying everybody loves me, but I don't have any ongoing feuds, spammers, trolls, art thieves, or anything like that. I've been here for over four years, and these ten commandments are what keep me safely out of the flames.How to Avoid dArama6 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I. If someone insults you, you don't have to retaliate.
So some anonymous bozo doesn't like you - so what? Learn to let it go. Hurling insults back only makes you look like a complete idiot.
Do you ever see this scenario? Troll insults Johnny, and Johnny argues with Troll, trying to prove Troll wrong and get him to apologize. Eventually they just end up flinging variations of "your mama" at each other.
It's fruitless, obviously, because trying to get a troll to be logical is like trying to empty a bucket with a soup strainer. So all that happens in the end is that the troll is still a troll, and you end up looking like just as big a jerk as he is.
Let insults slide off your back like wate

Update (December 17): Alright guys, I've decided to make some changes to the deadlines for sending in gifts since a lot of people have had complications with the dates o__o I'm allowing you to send them in ALL THE WAY from the 21st to the 28th; so that gives you some time after X-mas in case you're traveling. Still, it's preferrable you get it done on Christmas or close to it >u>; Procedure is still the same. The earliest you're allowed to post it is the 21st. And then you send me a link, I post it on a journal (I might post it up later because I'm traveling on the 21st) and you also send one to your recipient If you have any questions, PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK WITH ME!
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Secret Santa event of 2012! Much like every year, I ended up caving and deciding to host this event, for the simple fact that many and more of the SS events on deviantART are becoming invite-only. And what with Christmas just around the corn
El concepto rival esta mal entendido ._.Buenas xDEl concepto rival esta mal entendido ._.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Vengo a hablar de una tema con muchos estereotipos, los rivales ._. Aquí la lista de estereotipos
1.- Los rivales se ODIAN .-.
2.- Siempre pelean
3.- Nunca están de acuerdo en nada
4.- Según el estereotipo 1, obviamente no se aguantan
Lo que realmente es un rival
Rival: Un rival es una persona con la que compites por el echo de que tenéis el mismo objetivo. Los rivales pueden llevarse bien o mal, eso solo depende de sus personalidades
Rival no significa enemigo .-.
Mucha gente piensa eso y por eso dice, en el caso de los OCs de Pokemon, que su OC no tiene rivales, cuando en realidad si es así
Bueno siento ser tiquismiquis pero no me gusta que la gente piense que rival y enemigo son lo mismo

How to start making wire jewelry - materials andtoolsHow to start making wire jewelry - materials and2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Didn't fit in the title
It is not difficult and it does not cost a fortune. All you need is a strong will to create, any other problems can be solved
You may find some of the advice written here ridiculous but this is how i began so i'm speaking from experience
- intro over -
If you are a complete beginner i would highly recommend using cheaper metals such as copper, aluminum, anodized aluminum or lacquered copper. You will ruin some to substantial quantity of wire while learning. Don't let that bring you down; it is normal and everyone who makes jewelry has gone through that phase So, unless you are wealthy, get the cheapest wire possible and experiment. Learn how it behaves. If you bend it 3 times will it break? What pressure is the best to hold it tightly without marring it with pliers? I learned on the cheapest wire available so i did not have to think THAT much about the money i was ruining with my failed attempts. You can get these in most craft or

How to make a viking dressI used to be a part of one history reenactment group some time ago. Such groups basically reconstruct elements of daily life of people from a selected time period; my group was interested in early Middle Ages, from the 8th to the 11th century, from the Eastern and Northern Europe. Personally, I used to reconstruct a viking woman from today's Sweden areas. Most of you will be shocked, but vikings were not half-naked barbarians with horned helmets. They had no horned helmets. Really.How to make a viking dress2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Anyway, my favourite part of reenactment has always been all the suit making. Buing materials, planning, cutting, sewing (hand sewing!), embroidering. Then, wearing. Generally, viking clothes are very easy to make, though I admit that the materials aren't the cheapest, if you want to make it as much accurate historically as you can.
Our goal: a simple dress, no emboirdery. This is actually my first viking dress I've ever made.

How to take crafting commissionsTaking crafting commissionsHow to take crafting commissions8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Accepting commissions is very different from opening a store in a lot of ways, so I decided to write a separate article for it. However, a lot of what I explained in the article "Introduction to setting up your store" also applies to taking commissions, so make sure to read that article too!
Note: I’m writing this with crafting commissions in mind, since that’s my area of expertise. I imagine that some things could also apply to other kind of commissions, but I make no promises
What is a commission?
A commission is when a client pays you to create a specific craft with their idea or instructions.
How is a commission different from sales in my store?
When you sell something in your store, people are buying your work. When you accept a commission, people are hiring you to do
