PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!PE - The Beef with Bases3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t

Only few people (the ones who win the marathon btw) take this event serious and don't disguise. More than 5000 people participated in my city. I must say I'm a BIG fan of this event. Can't wait seriously! I must think about how I'm gonna disguise this year.

IP confusionIt's sad to see people fighting about intellectual property rights when they apparently have no clue what those are, how they work and what is allowed (and not).IP confusion3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Prime example: http://boltstrueno1fanever.deviantart.com/art/Onyx-Forepaw-Feb-2012-Ref-286737985 vs. http://yasuoxingxing.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vcima
Obviously the latter is similar to the first.
The question is: is this allowed?
To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:
As the name hints this is the right to make copies of a work. It does not protect ideas, only the actual recorded work - artwork, documents, music etc.
This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own
How to gain popularityI've had various people ask me what they can do to get noticed on DA so I'll write a little journal about my experience with various methods of getting your stuff out there.How to gain popularity3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am not at all claiming to be popular myself, I'm just providing feedback.
1. USE GROUPS
Seriously people. It's probably one of THE best ways to get exposure.
There are so many groups too! You will always be able to find one that is suited to your art.
Groups are effective because it gets your artwork exposed to a new batch of watchers (the people who watch the group) besides your own. Try to join groups with lots of members and watchers, as these will give you the most views.
A really great group to gain exposure from is :icongetwatchers:
2. USE THE THUMBSHARE FORUM AND CHAT

Clues your Transformers Fanfic is Probably CrapI am an avid Transformers fan, have been since watching the first Transformers movie (2000). Since then I've immersed myself in its many universes; loving some and loathing others. One facet I continually search is the fanfiction which is a wonderful way of expanding the universes and even rarely improving upon them. I myself write fanfiction and love doing so.Clues your Transformers Fanfic is Probably Crap2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But, as with all fanfiction (no matter what show/game/book it is written for), there is a plethora of crap stories neck deep one must wade through to find the true literary gems. Put simply: 90% of fanfiction is god awful crap written by some kid/proto-adult with little to no writing skills and even less creativity.
NOW…I'm not saying everything I have written is great because that would be a bald-faced lie and terribly arrogant on my part. My earlier work has some of these "peeves" and it took a very honest reviewer to tell me so. If not for Storyseeker I probably would never have written anything better. AND I KNOW ever

BullyingA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Bullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The 5 Stages of FangirlismPlease, if you disagree, say so.The 5 Stages of Fangirlism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A fangirl larva will not be very open about her rapidly growing curiosity in a fandom. At this point, the larva may not even realize that she is developing into a fangirl, and even deny it.
After a while, the fledgling fangirl will accept her title and start to get even more involved in her fandom. Interest in pairings and/or fanfictions usually will arise at this stage.
There will come a point where the fangirl will eat, sleep, and breathe her fandom. Encyclopedic knowledge of characters/episodes/events, etc. may arise during this stage, as well as an interest in writing her own fanfiction/developing OCs.
In the midst of her mad dedication, the fangirl may experience several episodes of shame, being embarrassed of herself and doubting her fandom.
A fangirl who has reached this stage has
How to Commission an ArtistI've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there. One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate. Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists. The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.How to Commission an Artist5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes. That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from deviantart.com. Also, this does not

Disney has replaced pictures of new Merida on their website with old Merida, which likely means they are working on redoing the atrocious work they've released
