Copyright kid's opinion on the tracing fiascoI stumbled across this link earlier today describing an artist's experience with the deviantArt staff, in which a report regarding a trace of the artist's work was dismissed callously.Copyright kid's opinion on the tracing fiasco2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Well, you all know how much I love yapping on about copyright...
PART THE FIRST: THE DMCA TAKEDOWN
In the description of the tumblr post, the artist indicates that they submitted a DMCA takedown notice to deviantArt regarding the traced piece. In the screenshot you see that the admin simply disregards the request and refuses to remove it.
Before getting into the issue of tracing, this part had me confused. I'm no stranger to sending DMCA takedown notices to DeviantArt regarding members making use of my intellectual property, and I've never been met with a response like that. In fact, I'll copy and paste my most recent response from the admin damphyr:
Thank you for contacting deviantART,

It takes me a while to put these together, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys! Faving this journal might help
These are ordered first come first serve style; I will be showing around 50 pieces at one time (I still have a lot to go through and it adds up every time i put up a feature journal), and be featuring once a week as to not clog up your message boxes. It'll probably take ....a few months, so please be patient!

WiiU!Hay guys. I got a WiiU and spent the week playing through Super Mario 3D World, New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart 8. Already picked up Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2, but I think I'll take a break before getting into those. There's so many good games coming out recently, it's hard to keep on top of everything.

I love that I can play games while playing YouTube videos on the TV. That's great for multitasking, since I have a huge list of "Watch Later" videos which are mostly talks that don't require my full attention.
It's a shame that the gamepad doesn't reach very far (I can't use it in the bathroom ). The quality of the gamepad screen is also kind of meh... The video compression on it is pretty visible. But it's still way more comfortable than any other handheld gaming device, which makes up for that.
I haven't seen any particularly creative uses for having two screens yet, but maybe I'll see that in some other games. Mario World did a few fun things with the touchscreen, but

1)What is your name?
2)Do you know why you were named that?
Munchkin was my nickname growing up since I was the shortest in my group of friends. The 'Mad' part came in because I am very eccentric and easily angered. Over time, the part of 'Mad' became short for Madeline as I developed my OC. (who is actually a human who becomes a pony when she talks about MLP)
3)Are you single or taken?
I am happily taken by a very handsome stallion named Triple Deke. x
4) Have you any abilities or powers?
Creating stuff. Drawing, painting, sculpting...spouting racial slurs against alicorns...you know, the usual.
5)Stop being a Mary Sue!
...I'm not talking about her.
6)What's your eye color?
7)How about hair color?
8)Have any family-members?

Updates and ApologiesYou might want to take a drink from the fridge and find yourself a comfy seat, for this entry’s likely to be long. I’ll start with an apology to anyone who’s shown up late and has had trouble reconciling jflaxman the sci-fi/horror illustrator with jflaxman the cartoonist. One viewer has said as much but he may speak for many more. To save everyone’s time I’ll post his comment and my reply:Updates and Apologies1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey, remember when you made art about weird shit happening in post-apocalyptic landscapes, never visiting the same idea twice, always finding something fresh to draw/say, and basically just making things that were actually interesting? Yeah, me too. But I guess nothing good ever lasts in this world.
I've always had a love-hate affair with "Scorched Earth." I did a lot in 2012, took a long break in 2013, did a whole lot more at the start of this year and feel like
-_-Today I’ve been feeling very nostalgic about the old Flash game scene, where one could make a silly game in a month, slap an ad on it, throw it out there for free, and still somehow make a profit doing that.-_-2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve spent the last few weeks making icons, implementing APIs, creating achievements, emailing people, setting up store pages, and it’s soooo mind numbingly boring. And even once that’s done I’ve still gotta deal with unhappy customers indefinitely.
The ratio of time spent making games to time spent shipping and maintaining games is getting very uncomfortable.
Oh well. Back to work.

English words of Swedish originWhen you say the word "Kiss" in english, did you know that "Kiss" in Swedish language means pee?English words of Swedish origin3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also the word "Fart" means "Speed" in Swedish.
The Swedish word "Infart" just sounds wrong in english wich means "entrance" (mostly for cars).
Also the word "Slutstation" sounds wrong in english. It actually means "end station" or "last stop".
Since we are talking about this kind of funny stuff, check out this short movie clip from a Swedish full length movie made 2003:
Perhaps you didn't know that some few english words actually have a Swedish origin.
Here are som examples:
Ombudsman a person who acts as a trusted intermediary between an organization and some internal or external constituency.
Tungsten literally "heavy stone", refers in Swedish to a mineral containing tungsten and not the metal itself (Swedish volfram).

Do you know what the word APOCALYPSE actually means?
An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω meaning 'un-covering'), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, hidden from humanity in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. a lifting of the veil or revelation.
It is time for the Earth and its people to evolve. This is spiritual growth, and inner change, and a better way of doing things, for all. Most of you know we can't continue like this... the greed, the corruption, the suppression of technologies, the plundering of resources, and
On TES elvesAlright can I just say how much I love the elves in the Elder ScrollsOn TES elves3 years ago in Personal More Like This
J.R.R. Tolkien popularized elves as these otherworldly, divinely beautiful creatures which sorta established the standard for the race in all modern fantasy that came after. They're nearly immortal, distant, and to me, plain boring. Then around comes Morrowind, the game that really made me fall in love with TES, its world and its lore!! The elves of TES have a long history, and each subrace has their own cultural identity. The elves no longer just sit in their Crystal ivory towers (well I guess some of them do) and sing to their trees or whatever - they're flawed, complicated PEOPLE, and extremely proud of who they are. The haughty Altmer, the hostile Dunmer from the Ashlands, the cannibalistic Bosmer, the late Dwemer and their scientific achievements…. when was the last time any elves modeled after Tolkien's work had this much cultural diversity??

The first full week of year 2013 has started and this time has made think and reflect on my life.
The year 2013, will be probably one of the most important of my life so far. I will graduate officially soon which means I am no longer student but a grown up woman who needs to support herself. This means I need to find a job, get my own apartment... Yaya! AGAIN I have to move... Thankfully not too soon but... Most likely next Autumn. Yes very important year indeed. Time to become a responsible and productive member of society. Phhhthphlol.
This means I really need to start looking for myself. I have already updated my portfolio, made a new email address for work related business etc.... I might even start my own trade name! I have also FINALLY started to upload art to my personal DA account. That is an account where I only post my original art. I won't give the account name yet so please be patient. I will reveal it late

Remember this: The Nazis started by burning books, ACTA/PIPA/SOPA started by burning websites. Megaupload was the first, it will not be the last. When the masses no logner have information, they will be easy prey for the politicians to mould and shape to their will.
Wikipedia has so much copyrighted but not authorized material that its, by my estimate, 15 million web pages will become victims of ACTA in short order if laws supporting the ACTA treaty, signed secretly on October 1, 2011, are passed. That is equal to the number of Holocaust deaths of all groups, not just Jews. It is a bastion of modern knowledge, and let's face it, knowledge is power, they take our knowledge away, they take our power away, where does our power go? To them, of course. Websites may not be equal to human lives, but to us, they are negligible compared to l

That's right, I am open for Pokemon-commissions now. I decided not only to draw your favourite Pokemon, but also to feature one of your pictures in the description, which will be viewed by thousands of people! I wont take too many commissions by now (about 3 or so), so better get your offer now!
There are two possible commission-types:
You tell me, which Pokemon I should create a Pokedex-entry for and you can also tell me, if I should include some specific information or features etc. The price is set to 120-170 USD (depending on complexity), as these kinds of pictures cost me a lot lot of time and work! If you want me to include other Pokemon in the background (like other evolutions or other little Pokemon) it will add to the price.
