Stop harassing the admins, particularly realitysquared. Seriously.
Yeah, you may be mad about it but knock it off.
Going off and being a jerk to someone isn't going to solve the problem at all. So please, stop it.
Don't spam his page and call him names.
Sure, I don't really like him either but there's no reason to go apeshit at him.
He's not going to give you the time of day, trust me. And if he does chances are you won't like what he has to say anyway.
There's other admins to talk to who would most likely be willing to actually listen and talk back.
In light of that, the fact that an admin actually did come forth and display some interest in the subject [fourteenthstar] is kind of interesting, and according to her she'll be talking to the other side mods and staff about the situation with theft. You can read the conversation(s) wit

Women ArtistsThe other day, I attempted to put together a huge list of some professional and semi-pro women artists over on my tumblr, because it seems like too often women get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there who are all amazing, who offer unique points of view and design solutions, and who need more visibility and recognition. While putting this list together, I was really excited to find tons of new artists I'd never heard of before.Women Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Disability Awareness Day :: Braille Art FeatureToday is Disability Awareness Day. It offers us a chance to promote awareness and understanding, as well as a moment to reflect on the lives of individuals living with a disability, and what those of us blessed with able bodies can do to assist.Disability Awareness Day :: Braille Art Feature2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There are a number of articles coming to you from CVs and members alike aiming to spread awareness on the matter, so I won't double up on their efforts. But I want to take a moment to reiterate that not all disabilities are visible. Lately I've heard a lot of stories from people using disabled parking being abused by passers by, either verbally or via a note left on their dash, for not 'looking' disabled. It's a common theme. People will tend to judge the heath of another by how they look, but it is worth remembering that not all sick people look sick. The vast majority of disabilities are those you cannot see by looking at a person.
Some people live with chronic pain. Ot

Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or
The Ideal Body In ArtFor millennia, the body has been the most highly revered subjects in the visual arts. That's not new news for most of us though; even here on dA we see that most work here is figurative. The nude has been called timeless because it never changes, but I somewhat disagree with that statement. The body in art has changed multiple times over the ages, especially the nude. There's a big argument that the body (especially the female body) is too idealized these days, but I assure you, the body has always been idealized (and sexualized). The difference over time is what part is given attention to culturally.The Ideal Body In Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The mature, lady-like image was displayed in modeling in the 1950s, elegance, exaggeration, hourglass figure (a more mature woman’s figure, motherly). In the 1960s, youth was displayed in modeling, informal, very slender (almost underdeveloped, boyish figure), pixie cut hairstyles, doll like facial expression, ‘little girl’ mannerisms, juxtaposed with gritty street photo

A Very Important UpdateI haven't posted here on DA in a while, so this might be new to a lot of you, but if you've been following some of the stuff happening over on tumblr it won't be unexpected. For the past several weeks I've been getting steadily worse both mentally and physically. I've been depressed before, but I've never been as bad as I've been recently. I've lashed out at people, been getting angrier and grumpier, been finding it harder and harder to listen to people giving me positive feedback, and have even started rapidly losing a lot of weight.A Very Important Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My enjoyment for drawing has been dropping, and many of you have probably noticed that I've been taking more and more time off lately. For every few comics I post, I tend to spend another week recuperating. But within the past 2 weeks it's spiked so bad that I seriously have to consider what's more important: my health or drawing.
So for the time being I am shutting down. I'll still be working on brentalfloss and updating those here, and the most current
About The AcademyIntroductionAbout The Academy5 years ago in Personal More Like This
We formed a small group of devoted artists to build this project. Our goal is to create motivation and contribute to our dA community.
We noticed that most artist groups on dA are strictly connected to technical and educational side of art. That's why we decided to create our own project, where we would create a playful environment with a lot of opportunities to express your creativity and interact with other artists.
Imagine an online role-playing game, where you communicate with others through pictures you draw. Yep, that's us.
Our main purpose is to offer people opportunities and a base for them to practice creating comics, working in groups, storytelling, character designing, and more. Yet, we try to keep all of this "learning" to a fun role-playing experience. Present yourself, draw your quests, tell your story, show your passion. Fight against the hardships of student life.

What this means is I am watching anime and she walks by and gives me a comment that me go into a discussion on for who knows how long.She is educated with most anime I watch so she knows characters, especially Hetalia since its one of my faves.

Or when I was watching Fairy Tail
"My fave gut is the spiky haired guy and I like the chick with the big boobs. She's awesome."
