Feature...82Marry Christmas (well what's left of the day ) As it is a season of sharing with others this weeks feature will be centered around Deviants who provide the rest of us with such wonderful stock images. These are just a few that I found and I highly encourage EVERYONE to see their galleries as well as search for other stock providers here on DA.

The Declaration of Rights of the BulliedYou have the right to feel pain and hurt when someone says or does something that hurts you, even unintentionally.The Declaration of Rights of the Bullied2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You have the right to brush off someone else's words and actions and not allow them to affect your life.
You have the right to lose respect for someone who hurts you.
You have the right to be empathetic, and choose to understand that their words don't necessarily mean who they are.
You have the right to believe that someone is bullying you out of sheer sadistic cruelty.
You have the right to believe that sometimes the meanest people are those who are the most hurt inside.
You have the right to stand up for yourself in the heat of the moment. To call out behaviour that hurts you or others. To point fingers and say "This is wrong. This needs to change."
You have the right to stand up for yourself days, weeks, months or years after the fact. Sometimes you graduate from school and you and that bully are both in your 30s. Maybe they've matured. Maybe they haven't. You ha

Featured Folder over at Lit-Visual-Alliance.
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance

Wisdoms and Wise WordsWisdoms and Wise Words3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dein Leben dreht sich nur im Kreis,
so voll von weggeworfner Zeit,
Und deine Träume schiebst du endlos vor dir her.
Du willst noch leben, irgendwann,
Doch wenn nicht heute, wann denn dann?
Denn irgendwann ist auch ein Traum zu lange her.
(Wolfsheim – Kein Zurück)*
The first month of the new year is almost over, but I thought a journal with some wise words or principles to live by would still be fitting. I know some of them might sound silly, perhaps even naive, but just try for a moment to forget the bitterness and harshness that you so often find in this world and remember: there’s so much more to this life. Don’t postpone realising your dreams until it is too late. You only have one life, don’t waste it.
Rapping, Rapping at my Chamber DoorThis story harks back to 1978, the year I was born. My father was a doctor in the U.S. Army, and my mother was recently emigrated from Syria, having married my father her first two years in the United States. When my father was assigned to a position in San Antonio, Texas, he, his young wife, and their newborn baby (ahem, me) left Florida and settled at Fort Sam Houston, “Home of the Combat Medic,” which may as well have been China to them, it was so foreign.Rapping, Rapping at my Chamber Door1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Their house was small, sparsely furnished, and a visual assault of yellow Formica. But they were young, their love was strong, and their family would grow. I must say a word about my father here: He is by far one of the most brilliant people I have ever met. He was, however, a terrible soldier. He had, and still has, a benign essential tremor, and therefore wa
Important Update about art and sxc.hu stockImportant Update about art and sxc.hu stock2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sure many of you are aware of the situation with using stock from the website sxc.hu. I wanted to bring you the final word on the use of their stock in photomanipulations. (Keep in mind that they should never be used to create premade backgrounds.) Our Community Volunteer Aeirmid has shared the latest update from the sxc.hu's version of the "help desk."
Jade received an email as part of a mass BCC email to the dA users who expressed concern over the situation. Here is a quote from the response:
"1. The rights granted by sxc.hu license are very limited and specific. You may not use sxc.hu images in photo-manipulations or digital collages. Furthermore, you cannot create any derivate works with the use of sxc.hu images. There appears to be a common miscomprehension and some appear to believe that 'if the use is not prohibited then it is permitted' - this is not true. It is clearly stated in the license agreement All rights are reserved unless otherwis
PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourselfSuccess is not a measure of how much money you earn or how popular you are, rather, it is being able to find your passion - one that makes you happy and ultimately, one that you would be happy to leave as your legacy. To make a step forward to reach your dream takes smarts and guts but why couldn't you? Here is five reasons why you can.PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourself2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Everyone was born equal
More-less, this is true, some people are born more challenged than others but we all possess skills and ability to learn. It is possible to build something out of nothing if we really want to. It all comes down to our preferences and decisions.
"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."
2. Overcoming your fears
By constantly challenging yourself, you can get rid of fears that used to follow you. You will no longer be worried, you'll know you can count on yourself.
"If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right."

Can someone explain "renders" to me?I've been bumping into this more an more so I decided to share my RAEG.Can someone explain "renders" to me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
