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 Them9 months 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
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 Resources1 year 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 Prints1 year 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.

Photomanipulation: Interview with :devAbbeyMarie:Photomanipulation: Interview with :devAbbeyMarie:2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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

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.

DA has an amazing tutorial section, but it's always good to gather resources from more than one place. So, here is a list of some outstanding tutorials I have stumbled upon. Some are old, some are new, but all of them are worth giving a look at!
Giger Style Photoshop Tutorial
Type: Science Fiction, Dark
"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!!"
PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.

Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
You all may have seen those old masterpieces – painted in impasto techniques with rich and bold use of thick coats of colours and you have wondered how on earth they could do that.
So lets take a peek in the old masters' tools and techniques.
Today we will talk about a less used traditional technique – painting with a knife. Though it's a second most famous technique but not much artists use this technique.
Painting with a knife results in excellent textures, helps in bold application of thick rich colours, and, gives a whole new different level and style to your paintings.
Painting knives are very useful in impasto technique – both in acrylics and oils. Besides interesting textures, this certain tool gives you more control over paint and opens up a lot of ways to experiment. In one sentence, painting with a knife brings up your painting styles at a new height.
Some people says this technique can't be used to put
Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?Wanna Draw Like a Professional Manga Artist?7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Anime and manga: a booming industry in many parts of the the world. The beautiful and unique style of art and its exquisite stories enticed many readers and captured many young artist's hearts. This is how I started drawing; my love for manga and anime led me to a love of drawing. But like any abilities, good skills do not come overnight; and they don't come no matter how long you sit and wait for them.
I've hit a roadblock in my advancement so I decided to ask my favorite manga artists their own personal experience. It turned out, many of them had difficulties that I'm currently countering. Their advices are most helpful, and I hope you find them helpful too.
To those who never picked up a pencil to draw outside of manatory art classes in school: Read and see the process and other aspects of becoming a good artist. Maybe they can spark a drawing interest in you.
To those who are casual doodlers: These tips may turn you from casual to hard-c

"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
