Please please check to see if anything of yours has been taken, and file a DMCA with the sites host.
I'm not the only one on DA which has been stolen. In fact, lots of artists have been affected by this.

or while elections aren't happening send them lots of letters and make phone calls.

Dear DAPlease give me an option to disable favourites from showing up in my inbox.Dear DA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm really not interested in who favourites my stuff, especially when they don't comment.
It's like "Oh, I have 56 messages!". Nope! Someone just fav'd half my gallery and left me a pointless llama!
Also, favourite this journal, because apparently you can do that now.
PS. I hate what you've done to my journal. The style doesn't match the rest of my page now.
PS2. Make polls a non-subscriber feature plz, cause they're free on Facebook, and they're really the only useful feature subscribers get anyway. If you guys aren't making enough money off ads and prints, then you're doing it wrong.
Edit: Since this journal's gotten polular, I'll add some more daring suggestions...
PS3. Get rid of journal CSS skins, or at least let me disable them. Inconsistancy is bad site design, and this really puts me off reading journals by other people.
PS4. Fix your file directories so Flash games don't lose their s

Where did you learn to draw?
I was using cheat codes from the very start - both my parents are artists + my mum was organizing weekend drawing courses in our very house. You can pretty much say I spent my whole childhood in an art school.
When I was in high school I was attending course preparing for exams into the faculty of architecture. This is the course: www.labirynt.pl
During the first and second year at the university we had some drawing/painting/sculpting lessons but they kinda sucked. Besides they were worth only 1/10th of the ECTS points you could get from pretty much any other subject so nobody gave a shit.
Will you make any tutorials?
Probably not. I don't feel competent enough.
How I workI've gotten questions about painting demos on how I work, but I don't have any of those yet. I definitely want to try that out though. While I can't show you right now, I can tell you about it.How I work2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Creating an illustration is fun. But it's also a lot of work if you want to make it any good. Most people don't realize how much work it really is. How much thinking and preparation is needed. It's really problem solving. You're solving problem after problem, trying to make things work. Thankfully it's a fun problem to solve and you can explore as you learn new things.
Also, I'm not talking about sketching, or doodling, or speed painting. I'm talking about a story-driven illustration.
This check list is by no means definitive, especially when it comes to the design elements like characters and location design. In fact, it's more of a starting point. These are useful guidelines, reminders.
This is all common knowledge among illustrators. You learn this stuff in art school. You also learn the foun

This time I have decided to give away one small print with my art.
Specially requested by the winner. How does it sound? '-'
[The size of the drawing will be decided later]
There will be just two conditions:
1 -> Easy just favorite this journal. The more people see it the better.
2 -> The main reason why I do this give away. Suggest anything You would like too see me to draw.
I will try to explain. Once You browse my gallery You will see I draw mostly girls >: and even if I give myself a theme to paint, it usually ends with a female form. I would like, with your help make a new list full of stuff I should work on. This way I would get enough of themes, enough of pressure to challenge myself, and could in same time reward for this huge help.
Everyone can suggest anything. For example: more landscapes, males,creatures or different materials, some special color pallets or even rando

bullyingEdit09-11-2011: since you brought so much attention to this journal let me add something from myself:bullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you have ever been bullied, please don't keep the hurt, the rage, the bad feeling inside of you. TALK TO SOMEBODY! Tell them what happened. Share how you feel, it will help you find a way, it will help you realize you're not alone. No matter how ashamed you are, no matter what you think that people may say about it.
I know from expirience that victims always feel like they are the guilty ones and they shut up about it. But just share it with somebody, even if it's a friend over the internet, even if its on your facebook wall. The more you keep it inside, the more it grows, so set it free. And keep going with life, no matter how hard it is. One step at a time.

Know your Basics - PerspectivePerspective comes in different forms, the most obvious & basic of which is the use of the word in relation to the appearance of relative orientation in a three dimensional space. At first, it may seem irrelevant to photomanipulators, (because, hey, the photographs already are perspectively sound,) but putting more than one photograph in context requires that you learn to see what makes sense and what doesn't.Know your Basics - Perspective3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Technical Stuff
Perspective (from Latin perspicere, to see through) in the graphic arts, such as drawing, is an approximate representation, on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye. The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:
Smaller as their distance from the observer increasesForeshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of
sight are relatively shorter than dimensions acro

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map
Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this.

I went ahead and ordered a bunch of my own pieces so I could inspect each image for myself and I was really bowled over by the quality and by how much care was taken in shipping them. They were individually wrapped and shipped flat in a reinforced cardboard parcel, while the poster-sized pieces were individually wrapped and carefully rolled and shipped in a thick, reinforced card-board tube with secured, plastic end caps.
The pieces are gallery-quality, no-gloss, giclée prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks. Each print features a minimum 1" border.
Personally I've always hated how glossy prints interact with light, you never seem to be able to view the image without some interference and reflection. I'd always find myself saying "No, stand there. Ok, now angle your shoulder this way and block out the overhe
