My term as CV is going to be over in 2 days so please don't send me DD suggestions anymore and forgive me if I couldn't feature the suggestions you sent me in the last few days.
Here is April's selection, I hope you enjoy it.
Fakers and LosersA while ago, :iconpbird12: a.k.a Paula wrote an article:thumb325039082: :thumb324530959:
which states clear cut facts so as to why the whole issue about someone faking their art creates rage waves through the art community!
The last week has been a riot which ended up in me getting blocked by two deviants here who clearly have something to hide!
I obviously care much less about the fact that there are many artists here on dA who get more famous than others considering the skill work. Some people get lucky and some don't. It's not easy getting known around this site.
But the fact that people would want to fake art to get accolades makes me angrier than ever.
Here are two examples on what happens when you try to confront artists whom you are suspicious about!
Example 1- The "awesome":iconnatmorley:
Now now Bratnorley) , you don't need to get all worked up for a single comment there do you?
You obviously think we are all stupid people here who don't really see what you are doing? The scr
Opinions on the fake NatMorleyYes I'm posting a journal as well.
This is about the ever so famous natmorley
This journal is not really meant as proof of anything, only opinions on the matter.
You may have seen her drawings somewhere on this site, and maybe you are a fan. A good number of pencil artists, me included, believe them all to be utter rubbish. Fake rubbish that is.
Now why on earth would you say such a thing?
Well let's have a look at them, shall we?
First of all they all match the reference 100%. Even tracing won't do that for you. Also the drawing looks to be perfect and smooth underneath, and then she's scribbled on top as I there was no tomorrow. I would say that is a bit curious. Why make a perfect drawing only to ruin it with scribbling?
That's her style you might say. Well lets then look at what she says about her drawings. Oh she uses about 5 hours on a portrait. Trust me, if the drawing is perfect (minus the ugly scribbling on top) then you'd use a LOT more than 5 hours.
Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art. This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on. But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too. We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure
REPORT NAT, SHE CHEATSHello my dear dear dear friends
So, I saw this, and I realized why would people doubt my art (and many others')... BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE THIS GIRL MAKE US DOUBT ANYTHING!
Her name is Nat Morley> :iconnatmorley: and she's a fake.
How does she make... 'art'? I'll make this simple:
1. She does a lousy sketch by tracing...
2. Takes a Photo/Scans it
3. Puts in in Photoshop
4. Puts the reference photo under the sketch
5. Makes the photo lighter, and then paler... and TADAAA! SHE HAS A PHOTO UNDER A SKETCH THAT LOOKS LIKE A COMPLETE AMAZING DRAWING!
AN EASIER WAY! SEE:
> She gets loads and loads of Watchers because she adds them first... then guess what? SHE UNWATCHES THEM AS SOON AS THEY WATCH HER!!!
> She faves their works, and the UNFAVES their works after they come to say thank you, see her FAKE art and start Watching her...
> SHE HAS DISABLED ALL THE COMMENTS AND NOW SHE WATCHES A FEW OF THE dA STAFF MEMBERS TO SAVE HERSELF...
MAKE SURE YOU
Poll para No SubscritosUn saludo a todos los usuarios que pasen por aquí!
En realidad no se si alguien ya lo habrá hecho, pero pensé que nosotros, los no subscritos, también podriamos tener un espacio Poll o Encuesta para que demás usuarios, amigos y conocidos en DeviantArt, voten a criterio propio acerca de diferentes temáticas y propuestas que podemos generar desde nuestro Journal en nuestro perfil.
Hacerlo es muy sencillo, yo fabriqué el mio y he querido compartirlo con todos ustedes, así que a continuación dejo el formato de polls o encuestas para que lo puedan copiar, pegar en un nuevo Journal, y modificarlo como mejor les parezca.
El siguiente es el formato Poll (Encuesta) Básico:
