Thief from InstagramMy artwork has been stolen by i_kaah and posted on the instagram.com. http://instagram.com/i_kaahThief from Instagram1 year ago in Personal More Like This
She wiped my link and my signature on the picture http://savepic.org/3490989.jpg
She said http://savepic.org/3537057.jpg But I do not know this person. And I do not have an account on the tumbler and instagram.
She claims that she is the author of this artwork o_o And I took her permission for use of this artwork O_O It's all a lie. She is not only a thief but a liar too.
When she was asked to remove my artwork, she just made her profile private. But before that, I made a screenshot of her gallery. http://savepic.ru/4558312.jpg And I still can open stolen picture (because I still have the old opened window with her galleries before she made this private) http://instagram.com/p/Y_BL2bzepl/
I just want that you knew about it.

There are a few rules, not many - but enough to make it fair. The rules are as follows...
You MUST be the artist of the original piece, you cannot steal, borrow or "acquire" from elsewhere on the web (stealing sucks!)You can use your own characters, mainstream comic characters, Manga, Anime and Video-game characters. Choice is yours.You can submit pencils, inks and line arts - no colors! Otherwise it's pointless even entering!We will link you when we add the final winner to our portfolio, so we would expect the same shout back, just a credit to the work we have done.Nudes are fine, but anything more "distasteful" will be frowned upon, no matter how great the work is. Fetish, tickling and soft stuff is allowed.

How To Deal With ART BLOCKSOk, if you guys are still wondering, this post may help you. Its just a way I go on about it.How To Deal With ART BLOCKS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, what is an art block? Just like writer's block, an artist gets an art block. Its a state where you either; can't think of anything to draw, your drawings turn out crap, you're just not getting your drawings right, or just uninspired.
So how do I deal with it?
The very first thing you MUST do is to actually STOP DRAWING. This is your brain telling you to take a break.
If you force yourself out of an art block, it ALWAYS shows. It will look rushed or unthought of.
Second, is try and do something else NOT related to art/creativity... Go for a run, watch TV, read a book, play games, see friends etc.
Third; try and listen to music. Calm your brain and get rid of your thought process. Music is a way of simulation, sometimes you will get inspiration from it.
If you have an idea of what sort of thing you're after but just cant get it right in the end, this is where I think music helps. E
Secrets On How ToAlright I guess I'm gonna make another rant, and this one's been bugging me for the longest time. And I'm going to be as BLUNT as I will be and not sugar coat anything I'm about to say.Secrets On How To1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Often do I hear things like:
"what custom brushes do you use"
"how do you achieve this blur/ focus effect"
"how did you get the colors to go this way and that"
"what technique or computer program did you use"
What I rarely get asked for is:
"What did you study to be more efficient at drawing."
"What is an efficient way to study how to render certain types of materials"
"How do you practice proper lighting when painting?"
Guys I'm just gonna say it now, there's no shortcut to art. I work primarily in digital mediums now but I do have a solid foundation in traditional mediums. I didn't simply go out and buy a $400 tablet and instantly got to where I am today. I use custom brushes and special effects in my pieces, but they only take up less than 3% of the overall work. There's sti

A few Crane tidbits from The Dark Knight ManualOne of my friends was kind enough to send me Scarecrow's scans from The Dark Knight Rises Manual, and they are chock full of details that we didn't get in the movie, including fun things like Crane's analysis of Zsas.A few Crane tidbits from The Dark Knight Manual2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are a few things you may find of interest:
-Crane is 5'10" (which is funny considering Cillian Murphy, the actor who portrays Crane is about 5'7") and 165 lbs. He is also listed as having blue eyes and brown hair (duh), and single with no children (again, duh).
-His DOB is 10/20/1973, very close to Halloween!
-He was employed at Gotham University and his position was terminated after it was discovered that he was performing experiments on humans (it does not state whether or not they were his students).
-After he began working at Arkham Asylum the administrators were so impressed with his work that he was promoted to the position of Chief Administrator.
-He began working for Falcone after the mob boss discovered his experiments and blackmailed him. As we all know, th
Mutiple Thefts of deviantART Stock Models: UpdatedCurrent Update, Feb 9: It seems that the artworks created with the DA stock models have been taken down from all sites. This is good news! I hope the artist will be in touch with the models they have used. It seems possible through what I've heard from these models in their research that this artist may have found these images on a 'free stock' site. Please be aware of any site that is set up with a huge variety of fabulous, high quality images for commercial use, for free. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.Mutiple Thefts of deviantART Stock Models: Updated1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
An Italian artist has been using stock images from DA's portrait models as the source of her professional work without notifying the models or crediting them. In most cases, these models do not allow commercial use of their stock without permission.

IT'S BEEN ONE HELL OF A YEAR... :'3IT'S BEEN ONE HELL OF A YEAR... :'37 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey dA, it's been one hell of year, hasn't it? Well, it has been for me as least. Let me tell you guys something. Before I made this account, I was working a crappy job at a local supermarket. I made a shitty paycheck, and I worked horrible hours, for a asshole boss. But those shitty paychecks helped me build the awesome collection you've all seen. So, I didn't mind working at that shithole. Then, one day, I got fired. I was fired under false pretenses because someone lied and told management that I had threatened them. Just like that, didn't hear me out, nothing. So, I took my final paycheck, and I bought a premium account here. I had already had one, under another name, but I had made it years ago. And so JSRavengeist was born. I started posting my poetry and my writing on here, hopeful someone would be nice enough to read it or comment. I got SO MUCH MORE. Soon after, I started making friends on here, it started with only a few, and then more and more. Then
10 years?!? wow!!!haha wow, i just noticed that I've officially been on deviantart for 10 years now. gotta draw something to commemorate that soon! i'm not gonna lie, it means quite a lot to me. even though i didn't know it at the time, putting my artwork online and joining art communities like deviantart has become the foundation of pretty much my entire LIFE as i know it now. i mean i started uploading my artwork to this site for fun, just to get in touch with other artists and gain some exposure, and now it is my career. i firmly believe that my fanbase here on deviantart and the things i've learned here have EVERYTHING to do with me being able to work as a freelance artist. i discovered so many inspiring and great artists through this site. the reason i chose the Utrecht School of the Arts as my college was because i followed Bakenius and loved his work; when i didn't like the school i was attending at the time, i contacted him through deviantart notes and he advised me to check out his school10 years?!? wow!!!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Amazing Spiderman vs Trilogy + Public OpinionFinally got around to watching the Amazing Spider-Man (the first one not the sequel) and I gotta say... meh.Amazing Spiderman vs Trilogy + Public Opinion3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I mean, while I enjoyed the chemistry between Peter and Gwen, the rest of the film just... dragged on and on and there were some REALLY big gaping plot holes. You’re telling me Peter never once googled his own family name or tried to find out what happened to his family in the 12-14 years since his parents disappeared? Or what about that “searching the streets for his uncle’s killer” subplot that gets completely discarded halfway through the film? Or why on earth being turned into a lizard means you suddenly have aspirations to “take over the world?”
I also wasn’t fond of the way in which Spider-Man moved in this film. Going back and rewatching the original trilogy, Spider-Man is VERY agile and does a lot of gymnastics. The new one? Not so much. Plus I just think it’s ridiculous (both in comic and movie form) for Spider-Man NOT to

The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.3I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. This is part 2 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (http://www.taughtbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concenThe Three problems with how we learn art: pt.38 months ago in Personal More Like This
