Art Theft, Harassment is not the answer
Art theft is probably one of the biggest problems that frequents the deviantART community. People make accounts and post pictures they found online, sometimes claiming they made them, sometimes not saying anything at all, and often times they don't even speak English.
Art theft is upsetting to any artist, whether its theft of their work or someone else's. This often causes deviants to lash out and attack the one committing theft, but this is not a good thing.
Here on dA, stealing art is a bannable offense. Harassment and abuse, are also bannable offenses. I have seen people go to town on a person, leaving nasty comments and sending in ban inquiries before the deviant even has a chance to react.
What we need to keep in mind is that not all of these people are purposely doing this, I've seen several cases where it was not maliciousness, just ignorance.
Harassing someone who is oblivious to the rules, giving death threats, spamming, and any other form of harassment is NOT going to solve t

Heres the feature that was tied in with my original YOU CAN HAS PROGRESS article, helping motivate artists all over deviant art to believe that they too can improve.
Even if you say you suck as an artist and will never improve, never amount to any sort of greatness as other artists here have, I SAY STFU AND BELIEVE YOU CAN.
To help encourage the moral of artists here on deviantart I've organized this feature to share others who also can has progress. I hope you enjoy and become inspired from it all:

The Importance of Networking
This week, it seems the theme of my rampant lectures has been about 'Networking' and its highly crucial role in the professional world of art.
Now, I'm sure many of you have heard about networking before. Certainly, it's nothing new--but I don't think people understand the sheer importance of getting out of your studio/workspace, getting out there, and talking to people.
It also seems a lot of people who already do know the importance of networking and putting themselves out there--perhaps have no idea where to start. I mean, it's a massive world, with billions of people--who do you start with? What do you say?
Well, get comfortable and glue your eyes to your monitor for a little while longer, because I'm going to try and be of some assistance here.
There's one secret in the professional industry--and for some, it might be a little disheartening, but for most--it's a liberating fact.
You ready for it?
You don't have to be an entirely amazing artist to make a comfortable living in th

Secret Santa... With a Twist!
:dance: Hello there deviants! :dance:
If you've had experience with Secret Santas in the past, you'll know that it's a little game where names of people willing to participate are collected and then randomly handed out to the other players. It's simple from there. Once a player has received a name, they then set out to create a little gift for the person they've been assigned and they're then handed out on Christmas day. What fun! :excited:
So the end result is, a player will give a gift and receive one in return. :nod:
Secret Santas on deviantART however, means that we're a little bit more restricted. We can only give and receive art gifts, whether this is good or bad. So, to add a bit more spice this year, our Secret Santa is going to have a few more rules…
Rules of Secret Santa
:bulletblue: Each player will be sent the name of another deviant.
:bulletblue: The player then has two weeks to create a small art gift for that deviant.

Would it be too terribly much to ask for a request if they're still open? I can't exactly remember if you do those or not ^^; Also I'll not you soon~ Maybe we can do an art trade sketch instead :3
