Group Rules and FAQRulesGroup Rules and FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi folks! We've updated our rules, as of 16 June 2014, because we've becoming increasingly concerned at potential plagiarism, maybe even theft, of image previews used in some literature submissions. We think this is important, so we're clarifying and tightening up the rules in this area. See below for details, or the bottom of the Journal for a justification for the changes.
Please bear in mind that this Journal is intended to be a reference point with clarifications and explanations or our rules - we don't expect everyone to read the whole thing!
At WritersInk, we're trying to make writing fun again. We're trying to encourage writers to discuss each other's work, to be free with feedback, and to help each other grow and feel good about our writing.
In order to keep the group fair and successful, we need to lay down a couple of ground rules. Nothing too draconian - just things that we think will ensure the group is a better place for everyone.
Our rules are:
FREELANCING TIPS: Good jobs and bad jobsThe world of freelance business is populated with all types of clients and artists. If you are a freelancer or a potential client, you will eventually start to recognize the early signs of good and bad job situations. There are some tips and notes below that may help you recognize these signs sooner and therefore improve your ability to connect successfully with good job partners. A client or artist will seldom display all of the good or bad signs described below. However, watching for the following list items may help you to assess a potential workmate as a good risk or a bad one BEFORE work begins. Similarly, if you strive to embody the positive characteristics listed below, they may help you to attract better clients/artists and engage in more successful and fulfilling partnerships.FREELANCING TIPS: Good jobs and bad jobs3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

CopycatsIt's true - no one in this world can be 100% original and there is nothing wrong with being inspired. But when someone attempts to make a duplicate of your image in your style using your art as a raw template/blueprint, that's what I call copying.Copycats1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you decide to copy someone else's work, the least you can do is credit or put your own ideas into it. Don't use or attempt to duplicate their layout. Don't make a blueprint out of their art and use it for your own. There is a big difference between inspiration and copying! Have some pride in yourself! Don't copy others for the sake of your PRIDE. If you get heavily inspired, don't leave out the credits. If you want to become an artist or fulfill it as a serious hobby, act like an artist with individuality. Try to be unique, find your own style, and stop using others for your own benefit. Even if you do copy, don't think that the original creator of the idea may never find yo

More than BadgesLlamas... You give them to get them in order to gather those adorable little badges and to help others do the same. However, though this is the way that many look at it, I see it differently. When I give a Llama badge, it means something. It means that when I visited your profile I saw something amazing, something I couldn't ignore about you, it means that I think you are a truly worthy artist, that you deserve every Llama that you will ever get and more.More than Badges1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It is common courtesy to return a given Llama, but, next time you return that Llama think about it. Why did this Deviant give you that Llama? Was it because you asked? Maybe it was because they knew you liked Llamas, or they enjoy giving them to anyone and everyone to spread the love. There are so many reasons that Llamas are bestowed upon the people of DeviantART! But no matter why, that person took the time, even if it was mere seconds from their life, to give you that Llama. They more than deserve a Llama in re

It is a rather long story, however, i will make it short: When i was younger, i would always see pictures and illustrations that were not photographies, but actually drawings, as seen in concept art for videogames, nevertheless, i never actually considered that fact, until something i don't quite remember happened, that began to

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art
