Art Theft... update on a neverending storyFirst little update: I went to the police today. I must be honest - I was suprised that I was taken serious. Looks like there even exists a special unit for these things. I have given them all the data they needed and was told to collect more, whatever will happen in the next days. For now the sites (profile and group) are down but it might only be a matter of time.Art Theft... update on a neverending story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was able to write this message to the profile before it was closed:
"You should know that the theft and threatenings are now brought to the police. It is an official case of copyright infrigment brought to the attention of the law. If you plan to keep my work uploaded and maybe sent even more hate messages towards me, go ahead. It is all being seen, saved and brought to court. It is all up to you. It was all up to you from the start."
I doubt this is the end of this story but there is always hope.
This issue is serious now and I will take action on this. Donīt do anything about it any more... thank you very much
Hmmm... (Little Edit).... what is it with all those tits- and lady-crotch-shots with those pseudo-intellectual titles like "A dream of your lost desire" or "Loneliness of your heart" that spam DA? Giving it those "artistic" names does not turn a cheap tits- or vagina-shot into an artwork automatically. I am so annoyed, not so much with seeing female parts again and again *yawn* but with the fact that so many people try to sell sex with the "arts" label.Hmmm...

Looks like I should create a penis-cloesup with the title "Bringer of life" or "The mighty snake of forgiveness" or something like that. I wonder if it would be deleted?

I challenge your naughtiness!EDIT: Look at all the wonderful entries that I have got so far!I challenge your naughtiness!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, you are right, another challenge, this time one of the "fun" kind... if you know what I mean.
So, this one is a bit edgy though... as "DeviantART" and "naughty" are two things that many times do not get along that well. At this point I do not want to discuss the TOS of this page as we all agreed on them when creating our account here.
So what is this all about...
I want to prove that erotic pictures can be done in an artistic way and I want to show that not all erotic content has to be as cheap and uncreative as those things that we see on the front page of DA way too often.
Erotic pictures can be done very tastefully and with skill, naughtiness which is shown in a subtle way and leaves the most important things to the imagination is what I want to see... as this is what "erotic" is about: Imagination!
This is what makes a huge difference to pornography, which of course may exist as we

What materials do you use?
I tend to mix everything at hand. Normally, I start off with watercolors for a base, then add details and contrast with markers (water-based) and color-pencils (ditto). Then alcohol-based markers (they react with the water in a weird way, which is why I can only use them once I'm done with the watercolor). Later I add highlights and light with acrylics and a few more details with color-pencils and fine liners.
What brands do you use?
Most of the water based markers are no-names and Tombow. A few Farber Castell ink pens. The alcohol based ones are copics, the paper is normally Ca

Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography ContestIt is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word

Socair FeatureCan you imagine... Socair is one of my oldest characters that came to life in my pictures and I have not been working with him forever (almost one year, to be precise)! he simply would not talk to me and also I was not happy at all with the way he looked. I reworked his look from scratch and finally this character is up-to-date with what I can achieve. I am so happy!Socair Feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Now look at this! He already was handsome back then but looking at the old model, the lack of details and his skin maps, I really have to chucke. But oh well, we all start somewhere and I still like this picture a lot, especially it is the first appearance of a character that would be very important from then on.
And this is him now:

(FACT: It's not just because some of us have crappy vision.)
I know some of you like the effect, but here's the deal: do whatever you want on your own monitor and keep your hands off mine.
Did you know that, in Windows, holding Ctrl and moving the scroll wheel up or down changes font size? You do now, and it's not much harder to change zoom size on a Mac (I hear it is most likely cmd++ or cmd+- , cmd+0 reverts it to the original size). I know it's just as easy in Linux, anyway.
I already have my browser's text size display set to what I want, thank you very much.
Anyone who uses Word must be familiar with the concept of font size in points: 12pt Times New Roman, especially, when it comes to turning in essays for teachers. (And 13pt periods for those of you who couldn't hit that minimum page count )
Well, here's the deal: Web display doesn't work quite the same way. You can force all text to be 16
Style, style, STYLE, oh, THE styleWhat do you think about it? In terms of drawing. Is it important to have one of your own? Is it necessary to constantly seek it?Style, style, STYLE, oh, THE style3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen people troubled by not having constant style, people thinking their style is not original enough, people making a bold line between their two styles, people trying to get rid of one style...
My humble opinion on this is that you should stop wasting your energy on torturing yourself and just draw. Draw whatever you feel like.
Unless you're being paid for certain style but that's not what I want to talk about now.
What I want to talk about are all those personal pictures you do for self-improvement or supposedly for fun. "Supposedly" because if your main purpose is "fun" I don't get why you should worry yourself with "omg is this style all right what will my watchers say?"
Well, your watchers will get pretty bored if all in your gallery look the same. And also, there's not much space for improvement. Talking from my own experience, I was totally charm

The good, the bad, the update!Finally, right?The good, the bad, the update!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was gonna summarize this, but I need a good mini rant.
So I think in one of my previous journals, I mentioned I was having some issues with the guy who hired me to do his book illustrations. Basically, I had done 14 illustrations for the childrens book he wrote, but had given him a completely wrong price estimate (300$ for ALL the illustrations, wth was I thinking). So I told him that I was sorry, but I couldn't sell my work for so little. Even though they had already been completed. So I asked for a more proper illustration fee (no royalties, and for full rights D: ) and there was some arguing and hissy fitting and I honestly would have rather let them go unused, and told him he could go pay some illustration contract house the same amount I was asking for work of lesser quality. SO finally we got it all settled and agreed upon and everything seemed.. BETTER.
So blahblah, sending all the files to the publishing house. He emails asking if they had all been sent.. And

Can we talk about how Pepper is a total c*ntIn the movies, at least. I don't know how accurately they portrayed how she is in the comics, but.Can we talk about how Pepper is a total c*nt2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sorry if you ship Pepperony with the entirety of your being. You probably want to stop reading this if that is the case.
This doesn't even have anything to do with me shipping Tony with Steve. I could care less who Tony's with, as long as they treat him better than Pepper does. Seriously, the only thing I can see in their relationship is Pepper complaining about Tony's personality and expecting him to fix it or she'll walk away from him. From the beginning, she's been there to clean up his messes. She doesn't like it, and she makes that well known, but she doesn't walk away. It isn't because she loves him, it's because she feels like she needs to take care of him or no one will; the idea that she's the only one who knows how to keep him in check and he can't survive on his own. That's literally the only reason she sticks around. I can see no love for him in her eyes. All she does is c
