Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.Clarifying an Issue with Stock Resources2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms
Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
We only ask a few things from you in return;
Prints 101: Editing your PrintsHello again, it's renonevada with another article about how to make sure your prints are the best they can be.Prints 101: Editing your Prints2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This time I'm going back to Prints 101 and tell you how to edit existing prints and add prints to deviations that already exist. This is a frequent question in the Help Desk and in the printscommunity.
Most of these instructions will apply to submitting a new deviation as well. A brief article was written about new submit here, if you would like to check that out here.
Editing your Print
If you have a deviation with a print already enabled, you will see the button below right on the deviation page, which looks like the image below.
Click that button and you will be taken directly to the Edit page for that print.
You will notice that a few sizes have been pre-selected for you. Those are defaults that deviantART chooses based on the size of you
3 Sites I Can't Recommend Enough3 Sites I Can't Recommend Enough1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I never liked tutorial sites. All they seemed to offer was a slew of cheap tricks and what ever lame effect was trending at the time. I believe tutorials should be singular effects that can be built upon, used across different genres, and most importantly timeless. That is what SurrealPSD offers, along with articles concerning freelance work, and photomanipulation (as opposed to graphic design). It's a shinning gem. Plus it's ran by conzpiracy, so you know it's legit.

Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed EdgeHello, everybody! I'm renonevada. For those that don't know, one of my jobs here at deviantART HQ is as quality control for prints. I look at every print before it is purchased for the first time to make sure that it will print properly. Some of the things I look out for are copyright infringement, cropping, pixelation, and to make sure it doesn't violate other policies, such as being too pornographic.Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed Edge2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I plan on making a series of journals explaining how to make sure your prints will be approved when they get to me. I know that I'm excited to see the notification letting me know a print has been sold and I want to do what I can to make sure you all see it, as well.
For this journal, I want to speak about Cropping and the Bleed Edge.
This is hands down the number 1 reason why I am forced to reject a print, which in turn will cancel a sale. Because of this, I have tried to make this journal as detailed as possible.

Welcome to the latest version of the Rock Stars of Photomanipulation interview series. I really appreciate AbbeyMarie for taking time out of her busy schedule to give us this interview!
Abbey is an American photomanipulator who has been on dA for over 4 years. To me, her gallery is filled with incredible dark, surreal, and fantasy work, crafted with unique vision and strict attention to detail. She is a must-watch for both horror enthusiasts and those who enjoy a surreal, colorful escape from reality as we know it. Be sure to check out her page!
I hope you enjoy this interview.
The first thing I want to ask is, could you please introduce yourself for those who don’t know you?
I'm Abbey! And I am chock full of awkwardness and uncertainty!
How would you describe your art and your style?
I always think dark surrealism, but they have a heavy fantasy/emotional vibe to t

Art Thieves & What To Do About ThemHey, guys, AikouDesu here. To my surprise, we've had an increase of art thieves lately-- something that unfortunately cannot be prevented nor foreseen. It will become more frequent the bigger ALL-ART-4-EVER gets, so I wanted to post some tips and info about how to deal with art thieves.Art Thieves & What To Do About Them1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What you can and should/shouldn't do about them
1. Do not talk to them.
Art thieves are essentially just your run-of-the-mill internet trolls, and thus they feed on the negative feedback they get from doing this. Sometimes they just want the attention, other times they just want to deliberately upset others for the fun of it. Commenting on their profile or stolen artwork will just add fuel to the fire.
Sometimes art thieves try their hardest to seem like the original artist with the intention of selling the art.
2. DeviantART ignores third-party reports.
In order for DeviantART to do anything about an art th

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up."
- Neil Gaiman
"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close."
- Pablo Neruda
"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live

"For the final installment of our Sci-Fi series, I thought it would be good to up the ante and do something real crazy. The following walkthrough outlines the techniques and resources used to create a Giger influenced ‘Biomech’ piece. Many of the processes are very similar to our previous walkthroughs, however this type of work requires an important added ingredient: patience!!"

High School Never Ends DoujinshiHello!High School Never Ends Doujinshi1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I will be helping my brother Reverendbug with a doujinshi called High School Never Ends. I will be creating the art and he will be creating the story. High School Never Ends is a One Piece doujinshi but it is a crossover with Naruto.
Today is Monkey D. Luffy's first day at Pirates High School. Luffy is determined to make lots of friends and have a great semester. But things take quite an unexpected turn when Luffy walks to school. He sees that there is another high school right across the street. Soon the mayor declares that there is only one high school at that exact location. But which high school will stay? Then the two high schools challenge each other to a sports festival. Who ever wins keeps their high school and who ever loses gets their high school destroyed. Luffy feels that he has this in the bag, but he realizes he has one rival. Naruto Uzumaki.

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

Silently, the masked Shinobi slipped into Daisuke's room. It was an hour before sunrise or so. He had spent the majority of his time awake that morning walking around the fortress wherever his curiosity prompted him to. He watched the chef bake, ate a little breakfast, watched the guards change duty and gamble. He even played with a stray kitten. The soft, feathery fur made his fingers tingle with delight as he cradled the fragile little body in his arms. It had fallen asleep there and he hadn't the heart to wake it up, so he carried it with him. It was a little gray kitten, with white mittens, green eyes, a white mouth with a stripe, a little blotch of white on his ear, a tuft of white on his chest, all topped with a tiny pink nose.
He opened the door, casting a streak of light on Daisuke, who slumbered within and then walked in the dark of his sensei's room, closing the door softly behind him. The kitten, by now, began to mew at him. He let it down and it scampere
