I was a young artist once. And I've copied artists styles and drawings to learn. Which is why now, as an adult, I see... all these young artists angry because "she copied my style" or "he raped my character" or "they stole my species" or "that's my exact colour palette", and as a (more) mature person, I would like to help all this amazing young artists, with so much talent, and help them realise that we are all art thiefs, copycats and imitators. That's how we learn. 

It's a life thing, and you should not be struggling with that. But just to make my point clearer (and better explained, much much better) I'll leave you with the very talented Frannerd, who is going to explain you exactly what I think with better words. Thank you, Fran. Please go ahead:

UPDATE August 6th:

I'm so tired, guys. I really am. 

Life... is not getting better soon, economically speaking (thank goodness everything else is fine, health is better by the way).

I need to work, guys. Really! I need to keep on doing art in order to help me (even if it's just a little) with daily expenses.

After the divorce, mom and dad took care of rent (they still do) but now things are just not as good as they used to be. Dad is sick, mom is having a lot of pressure with extra expenses... they need help. So I need to find a way to make around $200-$300 USD extra a month. Which is HUGE right know! I don't know how I'm gonna manage that, jajajaajaj. It's so stressful I even have this strange stress-based laughter I hate. 

Anyways... 

I don't expect you all to cover that. I have less than a 100 followers... so... I guess it will be tough. Kannarith, my angel, has been helping me a lot! (sweety, I still need instructions for the art I owe you. Please don't forget to let me know what you still want) But she can't cover that much. She helps me a lot as it is. 

I need help from ALL OF YOU! Please, guys... 

How can I help you more, give you more value, so that I can grow this page, get more people here and eventually, get more commission? Can you help me with your feedback? I really need your help. 


Plus, if you CAN help, you can do some of these:

2. Commission me. Here you will find the information:

For the last 11 months, I've made a big journey in my life. I can't say it's over... it might never end, actually! Because for the first time in years, I realised I had to answer one question:

Who am I? 


You know? I realise, must of us don't even know who we are. We let others decide, and push us, to become what they want us to be. Parents, for example. "You have to finish school. You have to marry. You have to be a mom." And... even though they (we) have good intentions... they are wrong. 

Parents are guides. They must be there to help you answer that one question. 

Who are you? 

Because you will have to walk your own road, you know? 

To me, for example, was really hard. What I really wanted to do in life was to be a writter. But everything and everyone around me convinced me that it was too hard to achieve. That I will not make a living from that. And that I had to have a plan B. 

Guess what? 

I ended up with the plan B. And yet... I don't have a successful life. In fact, I was really miserable for a very long time! But I made everything right... I finished school, I married, I had a kid. And still, I wasn't happy. 

Why? 

Because that wasn't me. I mean... I wanted part of those things... but not they way I got them. 

The problem was, I never took the time to say: "You know what? I don't care what people say or think. I want "x" in life, and I will work for that". 


I got scared. 


Now, after a whole year of hard moments, tears and even work loss... I realise, I will have to start form scratch. But this time, I know who I am. And what I want. 

So, stop listening to other peoples fears and making them yours. You want something in your life? Go for it! Like... right now!


And to make my point, how about watching this amazing video from Bobby Chiu at imaginism

dA is home

Thu Jun 23, 2016, 7:36 AM
Don't be fooled. My new profile might say I'm not even a 1 year old Deviant... but I've been here for almost 10 years, now! 

Yes. dA and I have a very long story. I've been around long enough to see many things, and I still feel this is my home. 

For many reasons, though... I feel it has become a very sad, lonely one. I miss the old days when people were more active, and a lot of things were going on. 

I don't know... I'm just a little emotional these days, it seems.

3. TURN IN TIME OF THE WORK: Usually, it takes me hours to finish the work once I've started it, and depending the amount of work I have, I can take even 4-5 days to finish, although that would be very rare. The usual thing, it that you get your commission 1 or 2 days after you payed for it. Please take that in mind, specially if you're thinking about refunds. 

4. PERSONAL AND SEMI COMMERCIAL USE OF MY ART: Once money/contract/completed work has transferred between me and you, the customer, the art becomes yours and you can do whatever you want with it as long as it is for personal use only. If you're selling the original character you commissioned art from me and wish to add the amount of money you invested on commissions, you can sell the art I've done but only for the original amount you payed originally. 

5. COMMERCIAL USE OF MY ART: If you want to use my art (commissions only) for commercial use, meaning prints, stickers, T-shirts, etc, you can do it by purchasing part of the rights for my art. The amount will be discussed between me and you, the costumer, depending on the type of project you're using it for. 

6. DO'S AND DON'TS OF PURCHASED ADOPTABLES: If you're buying adoptables or designs, you can resell, trade and do whatever you want with them. Any commercial use is permitted, as long as you give me credit for the original design. Original copyright of the design belongs to me. 

7. DO'S AND DON'TS OF GIFTED ADOPTABLES: Adoptables that you receive from me through giveaways, gifts, special events or contest, you cannot sell under any circumstances. You may, however, trade them anytime, but you'll have to notify me to make sure the new owner follow the same rules. Designs obtained with "design tickets" works with this rule, except those obtained through a donation or a commission package. 

8. ABOUT CREDIT: If you're uploading my art to your gallery, please link back to my page in the description and credit me.

9. COPYRIGHT OF MY ART: If you're interested on owning copyright of the design so you can use it in further commercial applications without giving me credit for it, send me a note. We'll discuss the price for that. 

10. ACCEPTANCE OR DENIAL OF YOUR COMMISSION: I reserve the right to decline the service if:
a) The client asking for it has less than a year being a Deviantart user. This, because of the big amount of fake accounts that exist this days. 

11. PROMOTIONAL USE OF MY ARTE: I may use the designs I have drawn initially in my portfolio or for personal promotion. The original art remains of my property.

12. DOUBTS AND CONCERNS: If you have any doubt or concern regarding this, please send me a note. 

**Breaking this agreement will result in blacklisting from future purchases. Further infractions will result in a ban. If after accepting and delivering work I discover the customer has a past of delinquent payments, returns, or reselling, I reserve the right to break the contract and giving no refunds or up to 30% of the original payment. If I don't like how a consumer is treating me I also reserve the right to refund money, breaking the contract and claiming back the design.**
