Welcome to the Internet. Now go home.I post stuff here, on fetlife, and on tumblr. Well, I used to - now I hardly do at all.Welcome to the Internet. Now go home.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
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

Did You Know - Thumbs CodeThumbs CodeDid You Know - Thumbs Code4 months 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

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*.

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.

Hi and Welcome to the Out of Place Contest! Have you seen a panda bear exploring the icy region of Antarctica lately? How about that photobombing zebra from your latest trip to the D.C.

"Pearls are Women´s best Friends"
"What is it about Pearls that makes them so mysterious? So exotic?
Pesonally I think it is because they are adornments that are made by the sea...
They are not hard, cold gemstones that have been crushed by the earth for millions of years;
they have been nestled in the soft warmth of an oyster, surrounded by salty and sandy waters.
Diamonds say, "See me sparkle! Look at me I am beautiful."
Pearls say, "I am mysterious, so come closer and figure out why.
I do not flash, there is more to me."
When thinking of pearls, most have visions of the "string of pearls"
a young girl gets as she sets off to university or is given for her wedding day.
Signifying purity and even perhaps virginity.
But the Pearl laughs at this.
Its demure, gossimer glow tells another story all together.
Have you seen pearls in candlelight?
Pearls have remained quiet and relatively uninvasive over time,
but take another glance at history to see the most seduct

What Ruins A Painting?
(or makes it better)
We all had those kind of paintings at some point, looking at which we felt something is not right – something is not right – But could not find it. What went wrong? We have put every finest details and all our patience in it. Then?
Art has its own science. Science that makes a successful art – something that comes out exactly you thought of and leaves the same impact on your audience. That science is known as composition in art and music. Where your eyes will go at first, how you will draw attention, how much attention you will draw – these are not luck, but pure science. A well thought designed piece is always successful. So mastering the brushes are not enough, we have to learn about the basics that make a successful art!

Hello to all members of TheFavouriteShowcase
Unfortunately, due to some issues I have to deal, I'm not able to count the votes and reveal who are the winners on the 1st July. I'm really sorry, I don't like to leave without finish a chore. And I'm not sure when I can continue the counting...I'll do my best to let you know the results as soon as possible, not in this weekend as promised, but in the next one.
I beg you to understand and besides the other prizes, to compensate the ones who have already voted for all categories without having to, I have a surprise with one more prize.
Thank you for all your support
We are celebrating two years, we are renewing our Super Group status, it's the renewal season, after a cold, damp, grey Winter (I know, not in the South Hemisphere - but you continue to have good weather there so you will be with the right mood to participate too).
