Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright InfringementNever needed to keep a journal. I decided to install it today just to post this.Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a terrible story about an user that had a complain about copyright infringment, in which she was not the owner of the copyright over the original character as the original belongs to Lauren Faust / Hasbro. The girl unleashed her fanbase (other than all the other pricks around the internet that have no other interesting stuff to do and find it funny) against a Community Manager, Administrator of Deviantart, which i find to be an otrageous thing to do.
I searched for a simple yet effective description of what Copyright means and i found it surprisingly non other than on the respective bashed admin's journal, as a very old entry.
Probably if the people would have bothered to browse and read, they would have been illuminated why the admin took the actions he did on the so often posted screenshot.
What I want to do here is to use the overall issue to compare the differences between copying, plagiari

McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide

We looked for composition, clarity, timing of the shot, if the subject was centered or not.(rule of thirds) brightness of subject, blurring of backgrounds . we felt the newt really stood out as there weren't any other reptiles. We love the timing of the blue jay as he is about to take off, the crispness of the snail .

Finally Leaving DA :) So long my friends!Looong happy journal ahead!Finally Leaving DA :) So long my friends!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello everyone and happy holidays, I hope your year has been a good one and if not, I hope next year will bring good tidings to you and your family
Now then, onto other things. I just want to say that the following journal has been well thought out and is meant to be a positive thing.
As most of you know, I rarely come on DA anymore. I have all but left, and now it's time I say goodbye. The reason I am writing this journal is because so many of my friends and artists I watch just delete their account or disappear off DA. But I don't want to be like that; I have had a wonderful experience on DA and this site deserves more than that. I have made too many good friends on here.
So, here is the history of Drayok (me) and my time spent on DA and finally, why I am leaving.
DA is the entire reason I got into art. Before DA, I might have occasionally drawn. Like once a year, but never knew what art could really be, never knew what art could do to a person. I found
WaterproofSo last week, we got hit by yet another downpour of torrential rains, which continued for days (thankfully without any consistent strength for too long). Floods were raging on everywhere, submerging cars, houses, trees, electric posts, and even people. In many villages, including ours, floods crept up inside our houses, eating up a lot of our stuff, bringing all sorts of UFOs (unidentified floating objects) and diseases along with it, and knocking out the electricity for days. For four days, we were armed with candles, flashlights, and fans as we braved the seemingly never-ending monsoon. But in all actuality, we were used to it.Waterproof3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's happened before--many times before, even--but it doesn't mean it still isn't pretty horrible. People are either driven out of their homes or stranded in them. Some drown in the strong currents of the floods. Lots of things, lots of people, were--and are--lost. It's as if the country was washed down.
But the best part is that we get up. Our country, small
