Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright InfringementNever needed to keep a journal. I decided to install it today just to post this.Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a terrible story about an user that had a complain about copyright infringment, in which she was not the owner of the copyright over the original character as the original belongs to Lauren Faust / Hasbro. The girl unleashed her fanbase (other than all the other pricks around the internet that have no other interesting stuff to do and find it funny) against a Community Manager, Administrator of Deviantart, which i find to be an otrageous thing to do.
I searched for a simple yet effective description of what Copyright means and i found it surprisingly non other than on the respective bashed admin's journal, as a very old entry.
Probably if the people would have bothered to browse and read, they would have been illuminated why the admin took the actions he did on the so often posted screenshot.
What I want to do here is to use the overall issue to compare the differences between copying, plagiari

Knowing He is Not Guilty...Knowing He is Not Guilty...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When I was in fifth grade,
a man followed my brother home.
I remember being on the computer
in the office right by the front door.
At first, it was a frantic knock.
My brother and his seventh grade friends
were quickly getting off their bikes,
my brother telling me to open the door.
I took my time getting up,
thinking they had forgotten their keys.
claiming to be neighborhood watch,
followed my brother and his friends home.
He saw them playing tag on their bicycles
on their own school campus,
yelled at them for trespassing,
threatening to call the cops,
and when no police arrived
he decided to take matters into his own hands.
He followed them home.
In his car.
He tailed them, but they saw him.
They tried to avoid him,
but when they got home
he pulled up and got out of his car
and ran up to our front door.
Our front door.
He came to our front door.
He followed them all the way home
and came up to our front door.
My brother was screa
The Muse AbidesAsk any artist about “emptiness” and they’ll tell you about the constant recurring nightmarish emptiness they must face down almost every day as a part of their vocation: the blank space that they must fill. Whether he’s a painter facing a blank canvas or she’s a poet facing a blank computer screen, the blank space awaiting transformation at the hand of the artist can be the loneliest and cruelest place on earth.The Muse Abides3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

Sucker PunchedThis is a LONG one so settle in!Sucker Punched2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve been re-watching Sucker Punch a lot lately and have been humorously admiring how misunderstood it is. It’s almost comical how a movie that comes right out and says “I am about the negative connotations surrounding the constant sexual abuse and objectification that women endure,” gets reviewed and dismissed as “just another pandering male geek fantasy of objectified sexualized women.”
I could write a book on the various subtle metaphors and messages Sucker Punch visualizes, but I don’t wanna bore you all. But to demonstrate what I mean let’s just dissect a small piece of it.
Before we begin we need to understand two things. First, Director Zach Snyder made the film with the express intent of it being a feminist critique on geek culture. If you don’t believe me, hear it from his own words: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/interview-zack-snyder-on-the-sexuality-and-world

The contest is finished! Thanks for all the entries!
There are so many beautiful entries that I can not really decide !!!!! OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Give the results as soon as possible. Maybe I'll do a poll to help me decide?
Thanks again for the beautiful entries ^^
- I have no precise idea: It can be ANY breed of cat!
- I would like the character created by you had a personality (It may also be a humanized personality), You can also give him accessories (be original)
You can also give him a story and if you want even a name (be original)
(the story can be fantasy or realistic) You can put all the features you want! More original is better!
You can also give the character a profession or a hobby (I know, for example: cat librarian or mechanical cat XD)
- The colors and marking must be NATURAL (no green or blue...)(Marking realistic but simple, I've got to draw them XD)
- It can be both male
Looking for closed species adopts (Always open)Hello there, let me just add to the pile of of looking for closed species journals out there. This is for a reference of what I'm looking for exactly so I can continue to update this when I run across new species I like. I'll order what I'm looking for in terms of desire, remember, you're in no way obligated to trade me and I will not pester anyone who owns a species that I like in order to get them to trade. I consider that harassment and extremely rude, so please respect one another here.Looking for closed species adopts (Always open)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Even if you do not see a closed species on this list, but have one to offer, feel free, I'll take a look at it and decide if I'd like the design or not. But only if its more of a popular species. I'm afraid I'm not interested in species just starting out (Unless they're well done) at the moment.

PE: Contest PointersContest PointersPE: Contest Pointers2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Contests are everywhere on deviantART, and it seems like there are dozens of new ones cropping up every few weeks. While some of these contests go on to become extremely popular and successful, racking up hundreds of points in prizes and gaining a remarkable number of entries (), some of them flop, flounder, and sadly disappear into obscurity ()
So how does one go about hosting a successful contest? There's no fool-proof, super secret formula, of course, but there are some general tips and guidelines for what you can keep in mind when planning a new contest.
Every contest has a theme, which can range from being very specific to very general depending on what sort of contest you want to hold. Keep in mind what your theme will affect how many people will participate in your contest. A broad theme that anyone can relate to will probably generate more interest than a more specific one that limits the number of

This petition here: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-sopa-2014/q0Vkk0Zr Got the required amount of signatures
It is not legitimate because it asks to stop the Stop Online Piracy Act, which is not being passed. APPARENTLY, SOPA is going under a new name, and therefore any petitions going against SOPA aren't legitimate.
BAH! HUMBUG! I say, so let's show them what we've got, THIS PETITION HERE:
Is legitimate for white house, and needs 96,000 signatures.

what makes us humanWe are more close to animals that many of us actually consider, not in the aspect of the biological evolution or man's closeness to animals, but more in the aspect of the mind.what makes us human4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We can believe that our calculative capabilities or our ability to learn and explore the stars and heavens may what distinguishes us from the rest of other life forms, but it is in fact, our ability to give meaning to those that are around us other than to what they really are in reality. We possess the ability to give rise new perception to natural acts.
Science looks at us as measurable factors, simplified and broken down into basic forms and meaningless, e.g. Humans- Organs- Cells- Organic compounds- Elements- Atoms- Protons, Neurons Electrons etc. but it does this, not out of uncaring malice, but out of necessity. It needs to see us as things it can plug in to the equation, gears to make the machine work, parts to make the system function. Its utter disregard of meaning means that we can explore the depths o

But that's a long time for me.
The reason is I've been writing a book. It is almost finished and I am SO EXCITED. I had a goal of 96,000 words and I reached it last night. I'm on the final scene and the emotions are rampant. Last time I tried to get published, I got kinda close. Now it's not even funny how confident I am.
Check out my synopsis:
"Scientists should have known what would ensue after they recreated life. It was supposed to be a breakthrough. It was supposed to put an end to cancer, disease, old age. But our new life began to retaliate. We learned they were hostile. They learned how to control our dead, using our own bodies to destroy us.
"Now, twenty years later, our world is reaching extinction. Human remains are a natural part of the environment. Cannibalism is an acceptable form of survival. Our scientific breakthrough still haunts the streets.

We all know Fella and dA wouldn't be the same without him anymore.
But did you ever wonder who he really is? Where does he come from? Why is he alone?
He is always at our side, lurking here and there, making your dA experience a little brighter and introducing you to new things all the time.
Your mission is to show us the world of Fella.
How does he live? Does he have pets? Is he the only one or are there other 'creatures' like him? Does he come from a distant planet? Is he the result of an experiment?
What does he eat? Or maybe he doesn't need to eat at all?
What is he doing in his freetime? Does he like to cook or read a good book? Or is he more of an adventurer, exploring the world outside?
Below you can see a few artworks, that already show Fella working for dA or in random situations. Maybe these inspire you to come up with other details of his life.

A Quick Moment In Light of Robin WilliamsI usually don’t do these types of things, but to hell..I feel like it today.A Quick Moment In Light of Robin Williams1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Williams was a treasure, and I think the world morns for him so greatly because we’ve all come to love him in different aspects of our life. People my age remember movies like “Aladdin” or “Mrs. Doubtfire”, and the older of us remember that as well as his early comedy. But actors can be around forever, as they do.
But I think why we hurt more than usual..is that there was something about Williams that made him so likable and full of the human spirit that let everyone latch onto him, and maybe this is why it hurts as much as it does.
And of course, the probably circumstances of his death. Depression can harm, from the exterior, the most happy and joyful people. I know, I’ve been there.„and I’m sure people would be surprised to hear that coming from me, but the point still stands.
So I say, let us morn as world then those divided.

The Photographers Guide : Taking Quality PhotosThe camera is just a tool, it's not magical. You don't even need a DSLR to be a photographer. Anyone can take a picture on any device, and it be considered art. It is how you do this that most effects your outcome. For example, take me. I don't own a dedicated camera - used my camera phone - the Nokia N8 - for each and every photograph i have clicked that is in my gallery. Sounds odd ? Well its the truth.
