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
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

No one expected the house Hiccup Horrendous Haddock was sorted into.
He was from a Viking Clan after all. Viking's were honest, loyal, proud, brave, united, and loud, of course. They could swing hard and swig harder. Vikings were Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs and to be sorted into any other house proved you lacked True Vikings Spirit.
Vikings didn't go into Ravenclaw. That was a place for Greeks and scholars and those pompous Englishmen.
Vikings certainly didn't go into Slytherin. A Roman would be more suited for such a place of backward dealings, craftiness and lies.
Hiccup could handle the shock of his classmates (a Horrendous Haddock? In Slytherin? How could he ever expect to take over as chief?) and he could handle his father's disappointment in those short-worded letters. Hiccup was always a bit of a loner and the Slytherin lifestyle catered to that just fine. Everyone in Slytherin minded their own business more or
Writing a good Artcrossing profileWriting a good Artcrossing profile2 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

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!

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

My first contest! Hopefully people can join and make me happy! First off, no. You do not need to be a watcher of mine to participate! This contest is free-for-all on the condition that you follow my rules! But please note you won't get journal updates if you don't watch me, so you could miss something important!
You won't be judged on how well you draw the Teacup, or the original character, just the OC design! The idea behind the Teacup is that is the size of the Original Character! All I care about is the design so I'd love any artist of any ability and media to be able to join and share the talent they hold with me!
No design theft, or stolen art. I will be checking all entries. If you use stock, please, please state! I don't mind any use of stock as long as it does not violate the users policies.
If you feel the need, you may use a base. W

Using HTML on deviantARTUsing HTML on deviantART3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Anime Classics - A list (Image Heavy)Anime Classics - A list (Image Heavy)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anime Classics - A list of the most influential anime from about 1987 - 2000 for new and old fans.
I made a list like this on Tumblr a while back but ended up removing it because of the length being a bit to heavy for Tumblr. However, to my surprise I got a lot of complaints from new anime fans who were looking forward to checking out the anime on the list.
I originally made the list because I've noticed in the past few years that some of the newer anime fans find themselves asking at cons "What is Tenchi Muyo? Ranma 1/2? Utena? Sailor Moon?" Since these were the first anime I discovered as a youngling, it really shocks me to hear people asking these questions. Has it really been that long? hahaha. So, without further adieu, here is a list, (according to me) of some of the most important Anime from my childhood, and mu

Song from the other wallSo I've been living in my single room dorm for 2 years straight for college. There's a song coming the wall from the left side of my room from time to time, only in the bathroom actually.Song from the other wall2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's very well sang, like that of a professional singer, and it's a very old era song, like something from an opera.
I've always thought it is a very nice song, and didn't think too much of it.
But actually, no modern college student would sing a song like that, and it definitely doesn't sound like from a record machine.
I didn't give much thought about it since I'm surrounded by other college students.
But then, only now it came to me that the left side of my room is a locked room and noone lives in it.
I could hear the song so clearly it could only be coming from the left side of the wall.
Asked my neighbors around and noone even sings, not to mention the tenants change frequently in my dorm and I'm the only one who actually stay for 2 years in the same room.
I've been pretty blunt about this althou
