We've all been there. Have you ever had these thoughts on the back of your mind?
"I'm not popular. My art is not popular."
"I'm not improving."
"My work is still shit compared to ___"

NO! NO, dA DOES NOT GIVE AWAY YOUR RIGHTS/ART TO THIRD PARTIES!
First of all to all people that don't know yet:
There's a rumor on tumblr. that if you agree to the terms and conditions of dA they can give away your rights on your art to third parties.
Read here if you're interested:
As you can see this got reblogged over 90,000 times! But it is wrong!
Please DO NOT reblog this if you see it! It's not true and all just a big misunderstanding!
Instead look at this: http://deviantart.tumblr.com/post/84568873007/languidness-joyouscatus-you-remember-that

Hot Topic selling artist's works without permission
A Tumblr post has been circulating, where Hot Topic is selling artist's works as T-shirts in their store, including popular fan art without the artist's permission, deviant artists included. It caught on wildfire when one user linked to deviantART's Submission Policy, stating users gave permission to dA by agreeing to their Terms of Service thereby allowing dA to sell it to third party royalty free.
This is false and inaccurate!
"We appreciate the rallying of the community around the rights of this artist. Rights and ownership of artwork are an important cause which

I'm hosting another contest, once again to do with Mister Mya, but this time my upcoming Youtube channel ^w^

First, I want to thank you all for your participation, it's just incredible. When I started this little contest, I was hoping to receive 20 or 30 entries ! with just this number it would have been amazing ~
But today we currently have 160 pictures, it's... well I'm just speechless. There's no word to thank you enough for your love and support, I'm so touched, you have no idea. Each new picture was so different than the previous one, it was amazing for me to live those 2 months !
You guys rocks !
Second for the jury, we were 2 at the beginning, me and my friend Charlotte (not on DA). But with all those submissions it's impossible to be only 2 to judge. So my friends :iconleel: :iconmarine-chan: and :iconylric-le-troll: are going to help me. 5 persons is great
The notation system will be about technique, idea/creativity and colors 'harmony. I've created a system of points and we will try to be as fair a

[ S T O R Y ]With mankind's advent, so too was suffering born. Since the dawn of the human race there has not been one generation to escape war, famine, plague, or death, but they have always outlasted their would-be conquerors and banded together to start anew. And so the cycle continued: periods of peace and prosperity, disturbed by unimaginable cataclysms and years of horror. But life went on, and on, and on.More Like This
In the late 17th century, unique humans began to notice an oddity in their world: quiet beings that herded mankind like sheep, pressing doubt into men's hearts and hatred into their minds to be set free amongst their brethren. They influenced insanity and discord like the swell and peak of the ocean waves. These beings brought with them creatures that had thought to have only existed in legend, and now it was clear their origins were otherwordly. So entrenched in human society were they that they had already been given names such as “hellhound
