Copyright AbuseOk, the cold hard truth here, If you put something on the internet out to the public, expect it to the inspire others. It just shows they enjoy your work and want to learn from it, that's what being a Idol is about.Copyright Abuse in Personal More Like This
"In a recent decision of the Full Federal Court, the Court reaffirmed the fundamental legal principle that copyright does not protect ideas and concepts but only the particular form in which they are expressed. The effect of this principle is that you cannot copyright a style or technique. Copyright only protects you from someone else reproducing one of your actual artworks – not from someone else coming up with their own work in the same style."
You can become known for doing something a certain way but you can't own it, you can only own the work as a whole. The same go's for characters, if its just similar not the same copyrights don't apply, even more so if its a generic design to began with.
So people stop bother the DA staff with this nonsen

Shaving Faux fur:
For Faux fur plushie makers, You should invest in a WAHl Kennel Pro, I bought two Andis clippers, both gave out after trimming faux fur for a few min. Also Make sure to keep your Clippers oiled and cleaned after using.
I recommend trim the Faux fur first before cutting out the pattern, so if you do cut too deep you can always make a new piece to replace it before sewing your plush together. Make sure to trim with the fur pile not against it, or you will just cut all the fur off, you want to trim it not make it bald.
Keep in mind being a plush artist gets very pricey, with Faux fur some fur colors are rare and you will some
Rivals and IdolsRivals and Idols in Personal More Like This
I personally feel that you should see people you admire/idols as a level you should strive to achieve or surpass, not think of them as gods you can never hope of ever being like.
That will only make you depressed and not strive to be great, we all have Potential as long as we have a passion for what we do.
I suggest taking a look at a person you admire the work of, an setting your self a goal to achieve that level! Make them a Rival in your mind, think of them as a person that started out just like you, but are a wee bit ahead of the game, you may have a little farther to travel on your journey of becoming better or surpassing them.
But never give up keep up that burning passion.
Copyright Abuse part 2Yes, style is an important part of being a Professional artist, But if you look around here on DA this isn't a very professional place.Copyright Abuse part 2 in Personal More Like This
Style comes from being inspired by others, sure some comes from nature and things around us but allot comes from things we enjoy in others work.
Sometimes peoples styles will end up looking similar or the same, based on what they enjoy, dose that make them a bad artist? No! they are still doing their own thing. Besides style never stays 100% the same, its always growing and changing.
If someone is interested in trying your "style", its because they like your work, copying a style is how we developed our own over time.
DA is mostly filled with Hobbies, kids, and freelancers. These people don't really have to worry about having a original style, because they are not pros and allot of commissioners like generic anyway.

Important update about widgets.From today I will no longer be using devaintARTs commission widgets, why? Because they will assume you are cashing out without you even doing so. Their system does not care about the truth, if you pay people with points, and they pay you later through a commission widget this will happen.Important update about widgets. in Personal More Like This
I have been in talk with helpdesk about this since they thought I was cashing out points (giving others points for free so they can give them back to me through a widget to get money for it)
And all I got was The system is designed to automatically flag suspicious transactions transferring points in this manner is not allowed. It is one of the many reasons we do recommend that all commissions be made through the use of the widget and not simply at a personal level. I had evidence if needed and they did not even care.
They also refund the points used if this happens to you ( even if they told me they would I have not gotten any taken that I know of yet) Which means, i

1. How did you join dA?
I found the link to this site on someones profile on Team artail oekaki back in 2005. I THINK xD and made an account, werent very active on here though.
2. What does your username have to do with you?
Back in that day I added the word "snuff" to everything, I recently found my old dairy and can confirm that I said "snuff" or "dill" on almost every page xD, so I guess it was natural when I loved gryphons around that time that they merged.
3. What is your current avatar of?
My character Penelope (pen) I was going to change it but dA Is a real butt when it comes to changing avatars for me, it takes over a day no matter what I try xD so annoying...

Took my cat to the vet today, since shes been eating less and acting all weirdo, so even if it didnt seem to bad I can never be to sure! D8< and holycow she got so much praise, she did not hiss, did not bite, did as the vet said and sat completely still for all the things. It cost around 250 dollars with a blood sample which was optional since they thought it was just her digestive system being a bit slow, xD but if I can check more things and be absolutely sure I will do it no matter what. Had to talk to my baby and pet her all the time so she wouldnt freak out. ;u; she was a calm cat through it all, and didnt even flich when they took her blood. I AM A PROUD momma :'D she got some juices for speeding her digestive system up and I am calling them back on monday eeeee <3

Inspired vs CopyingIf more than 4 things in your drawing are drawn in the same exact way and manner as someone else, you're not 'inspired'... you're copying.Inspired vs Copying in Personal More Like This
Being inspired is seeing something and having a desire to create something of your own as well.
Copying something is seeing something and having a desire and want to do the same thing as them.
I see a ton of people saying "I'm inspired by usernamehere" and you look at their art and it's either a carbon copy of the other artist's work or a badly rendered wannabe.
Don't get me wrong, for me it's really flattering to have people say I inspire them, but it is really more or less insulting when that 'inspiration' is nothing but an excuse to copy everything I do in every drawing.
By all means, be inspired! I'm happy my work can do this for people...
However, don't copy.
If you want to practice techniques and stuff (you can't copyright those) fine, but when I see 99% of your drawings are replications of my own work (in every tiny w

I joined back in June of 2004 (oddly enough) back on an account called ScarlingRagdoll666 (which is now inactive and more of a storage account).
The reason I joined was because a year before a friend from high school had told me about this place called 'deviant art'; a small website for artists to share their art. She knew I loved art and thought I should give it a shot.
I didn't have a computer at the time so I had to forego a membership until a year later when a friend of mine would let me use hers to check it occasionally. The first drawing I ever posted on here was this --

They need to be reminded that they are not mistakes but that they are a different and new path than the one taken previously.
Don’t let those who are lost lead your path for you. They will only you lead you wrongly and you will lose yourself along the way.
This is your life, live it based on every little success you earn and learn from every mistake you make.
Their mistakes are their own, and you are not a mistake. You are a successful example of what it means to be alive. There is no greater success than that.
This life is yours. Be something — be someone you’re proud of.
That's all I have to say.
Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)What do you guys think of Cesar Millan or 'The Dog Whisperer'?Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy) in Personal More Like This
Been watching some videos and been having some debates about his methods of training (which to me, being someone how has and does train dogs, are not as bad as people think).
The controversy that he hits/punches dogs or even uses tooth collars and shock collars is just stupid to me as well. He never comes on the show saying 'we're going to use this shock collar to control your dog', if anything he tries to discourage the use of these things for control of bad behaviors, showing owners they can gain control and stop bad behavior easily, without painful tools.
The fact remains that if a dog is aggressive and ready to hurt another dog or a human NOTHING will stop it, not a shock collar, not a choke chain, not a spike/tooth collar, or even a gate/fence. So the 'tools' used mean nothing, it's about presence, making the dog realize you are not a threat but you are also not a pushover.
His methods do work when done properly and wi

I'm still slightly upset (more so for Dark because her sketch is so well done, I felt bad that I couldn't get more for it but, what can I do?) but life goes on. I'm glad it sold, I'm just annoyed by how backward it seems lol.
Don't worry. I'll get over it. It is what it is.
Just for now I'm 'meh'.
Alright so... I'm going to flat out say that there's likely not going to be anymore YCHs from me. Not until people's minds change about how they view the value of someone's time and skill.
The fact people complain that $300 for two full body characters, full shading, and a BG is just insulting to not only the skill of both artists working on the image, but it's also the very reason the freelance art economy is bogus.
It's just utterly gutting to watch only 1 person bid and then no one else bothers.

"You should take it as a Compliment --"
A compliment would be admiring an artist's work where they post it, and if you really want to use it that badly, complimenting them would be you having enough respect for them to ask first.
Most of us don't get mad because you use it, it's because you use it without asking or pretend you didn't know who/where it came from when there's a link to where you can find the original artist on the image.
Taking someone's car to crash it in a derby isn't a compliment to them any more than taking someone's art to wreck it or claim it is a compliment. More so without asking.
