Not because of copyright. I understand that when you post something on the internet, you're posting it for everyone to look at, and it's going to get shared around. But the comped-up piece of shit you see above (minus my commentary) is all over the internet - it's far more widely distributed than my original version. Back when I used to read my messages here and on Fetlife, I had 12-20 messages per day about stuff like this. Mostly it was people trying to be helpful and telling me "HEY! Look over here, there's another person who smeared shit all over your art!" And it used to take me an hour every morning to cut and paste URLs into DMCA requests to get this kind of crap taken down.
But that's really only the tip of the emotional iceberg for me. About 1 in 10 times that I post a DMCA I'd get a message from the perso

My stock is here on dA for the purpose of being a resource for artists needing references and stock photos for designs and manipulations of all kinds. They are not to be used as is and unaltered.
Almost all of my stock is unrestricted. Unrestricted stock means that as long as you use it in your designs, tutorials and art, you can use that art or design you made in any commercial or non-commercial plan.
I have one clause that concerns my premade backgrounds. This stock can not be used to make other stock.
Always credit me where possible. I understand that when you go commercial or start posting portfolios and such on other sites it is not always possible, but if you can, please do.
You can use my stock as part of tutorials. This means that you are allowed to give links for direct download of my stock in the tutorial-set or include my stock as part of the download package of the tutorial. In other wor

ALWAYS SIGN YOUR WORK and other stuffHi folks. I was gonna make this journal sooner or later, but there's not a more appropriate time than NOW, when my 'Sorry we're closed' http://ry-spirit.deviantart.com/art/Sorry-we-re-CLOSED-162673296 artwork got posted on 9gag right http://m.9gag.com/gag/6281912 ! Not only did the person not credit the artist or link it to my page or whatever, they even changed the title of this artwork to 'S**t Happens'. Come on man... WHAT ALSO sucks is that back then I had a different logo, its like that box with a thunder symbol on it, it doesn't have my username on it either... so people could just look at that picture and have no idea who drew it. I mean this artwork is OLD.. like more than 2 years old.. so I was still new to how the internet works when it comes to sharing. So now this 9gag post gets like 16k of likes and over 500k of views and I don't get a single credit. *Flips a table*. Remember how I endlessly praised Joss Whedon a couple of weeks ago because not only did he repost my work oALWAYS SIGN YOUR WORK and other stuff2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Did You Know - Thumbs CodeThumbs CodeDid You Know - Thumbs Code1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Whenever you do a feature or maybe want to link to a certain deviation the thumbs code is a very handy feature. It allows your viewers to see a smaller version of what you are referring to directly.
But did you know that there are several ways to make thumbs appear?
The most common way is to grab the thumbs code from the sidebar of a deviation.
That way you will get a little preview no bigger than 150x150px.
Another thing you can do is to create a big thumb. For that you just need to add 'big' to the thumbcode, like :bigthumb###:
For our example it will look like this.
Big thumbs will get no bigger than 300x300px.
Alongside those and thanks to AddMedia and Sta.sh you also vary the size on your own.
Either choose deviations from the AddMedia sidebar and make use of the transformation corners or use this code

Not legitimate stock tips /how to reportThanks :iconbirdsatalcatraz: for the latest update in the list of not reliable stocks (link)Not legitimate stock tips /how to report11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Many people ask me what this term means ¨not legitimate stock¨
and always ask me how I know? how to identify?. so I decide to post a journal with many tip,
first...the things written here in this journal, I did a long search. and I'm doing this to help and inform people about this subject.
and first I'll tell because I started getting interested in this subject. three things happened that made me pay attention in this detail.
1 - a long time ago, I used the stock from pixabay in some premades. and unfortunately I did not know that this site is not reliable, so I was denounced and I had all my contents posted in stock removed.
2 - I used a premade, but the person who did this premade used a stock that was not allowed to be used, and this premade was
Apophysis RenderingIt has been brought to my attention that CMWVisualArts is willing to render Apophysis params for free at high quality. I was informed that this service is available to assist those in need of high quality renderings that their computer just won't allow due to not memory. If you are interested and the choice is yours here is a link to the journal explaining everything in detail.Apophysis Rendering3 years ago in Personal More Like This
the basics are listed below:
I'm willing to do so, for nothing in return. Just note these few things:
1.) ALL of the renders will be 10,000 density, so if you don't like high quality, don't do it.
2.) They will be whatever size you ask me to make them, I don't care how many hours it takes [max three days].
3.) If you don't want to wait over a day for it to finish, don't ask for me to render it.
4.) I will NOT put them in my gallery. Although it counts as a collaboration, the design was yours, not mine.
5.) These will be done one at a time by order of request, so you

"When something begins, you generally have no idea how it's going to end."

I remember one day when I had just arrived, I went into town together with my host mum
and had to wait for her while she had an appointment. I went into a café, had a coffee,
wrote into my notebook and tried to grasp that new, entirely french world around me.
I thought I could be doing that more often if I ever felt like I didn't know what to do because
my thoughts were chasing after me. The atmosphere in cafés is just so different from

How to Report a Copyright Violation on Facebook.I'm not very often on Facebook, what most I do there, is post my arts and give some "like" to posts of my friends, but don't do it every day, sometimes I get many days without going there.

But almost always I see copyright infringement from arts of my friends, and I will now explain with a step by step how you will remove YOUR work from other profiles. I explained that to some Deviantart members before, who had their art stolen, and all they did, works 100%!
You must follow this instruction correctly, ok?
1st: The best "report infringement" should be made by the original owner of the artwork.

CONTEST IS OPEN"IN THE EMBRACE OF WINTER"CONTEST IS OPEN2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each season brings a different experiences and emotions, different atmosphere, a different colour pallette.
Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a cycle of life-death-rebirth,
the inward journey, embracing darkness and silence.
Winter days are short, with long nights. The cold weather can make us sad and lethargic.
The season offers a sense of calmness and makes us feel peaceful.
The most romantic time of the year?
A snowy, frosty, cold world or rain and endless grey skies can be beautiful
but some people find that they become seasonally depressed as they receive less light in winter.
People feel tired and sluggish during winter. Too cold, gloomy, depressing?
Do you feel the winter blues or you enjoy the season?
Go back to your memories and keep your focus on your experience and emotions.
Show us your feelings about winter.
Show us your winter mood...now, in your past or childhood.
