Thief from InstagramMy artwork has been stolen by i_kaah and posted on the instagram.com. http://instagram.com/i_kaahThief from Instagram2 years 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.

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: Updated2 years 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.
Here is a list of models discovered to have been used so far.

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 Opinion1 year 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
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!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

There is 'lowbrow' and there is 'Baybrow'Michael Bay, effluent peddler extraordinaire, is tackling the view that his "movies" are naught but a cascade of juvenile, crusty-sock-level fantasies, tied together with terrible plots that do nothing but sh*t on the source material….by putting a bra-less Megan Fox on a trampoline.There is 'lowbrow' and there is 'Baybrow'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am not going to watch this TMNT film. I am not curious in the slightest. If you have seen one Bay car-crash, you've seen them all: just picture a cookie-cutter pin-up girl, reciting dick-jokes while everything around her explodes and, off camera, an elderly man jerks off into the pile of money you gave him.
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.31 year ago in Personal More Like This

Things I wish Comics Would Stop Doing Part 3Digital Motion BlurringThings I wish Comics Would Stop Doing Part 31 year ago in Personal More Like This
Part 3 is up. Just to be completely transparent here, I've done the digital motion blurring effect on a couple occasions too, though I didn't enjoy the results. It is a rather lazy way to convey motion, and if you have ink outlines I think it looks even worse. As Scott McCloud says, there are a lot of ways to convey motion. I just don't particularly enjoy this variation, especially in how it's used in modern mainstream Amerian comics.
Exceptions to the rule might be if the comic had colored outlines, or even no outlines at all. I think that might be a better use of the blurring effect, but even still it feels unnecessary. I dunno, what do you guys think?

We talked about a bunch of stuff, from dinosaurs, concept art, design, movies, my thought process on art in general.
The last segment is about me and pin-up art, drawing women, and what that means for me as an artist. I wasn't particularly articulate but I think I was being honest about why I do it. I've had time to mull over it and talk with other artists, because I think it's an interesting impulse that people have to make pin-up art. For me it starts as a simple endeavor; I'm a horny, heterosexual male, and I find women aesthetically pleasing and incredibly hard to draw. I'm not going to pretend that isn't part of it. Is that the reason why I make pin-up art? I don't think so, because those are universal truths that everyone knows and is familiar with. There's plenty of horny males that don't draw pin-u
