Hello all,

Many of you might be aware of a piece of legislation currently in the process of being passed in the EU, Article 13. It's been designed to protect copyright, however its design is causing a lot of concern in the artistic community - especially those of us who make a living off art.

I'm going to keep watch to see how this situation develops, but it strikes me that uploading content of other peoples' characters (ie., the backbone of what I do here) may become very difficult if this legislation goes through. Further than that, finding customers in the first place may become very difficult.

Furthermore, some people are saying that Article 13 will bring about the end of social media. I'm not sure how that can be - it sounds incredibly drastic, but I'd rather prepare for the worst case scenario than get caught unawares. So with that in mind, I'm thinking about finding an alternative way to stay in touch and conduct business.

Is anybody interested in making email contact? Essentially it could be like a newsletter service but with some tweaks.

If that sounds like something you would like to do, email me on thecharacterconsultancy - at - gmail.com. At this point I'm just starting to pull together ideas for what an email-based service like this will look like, so I'm open for suggestions. Just to get you started:

- Would you be happy to be part of a mass mailing list / would you prefer to be contacted 1:1 only?
- Would you want to see new content, and would you rather have it emailed directly to you or linked to you?
- How often would you consider it acceptable to be contacted?
- Would you want to take part in group discussions, just get the new content I make, or neither (ie., make contact with me initially only and only contact me or others when you want to be contacted)?

Whatever happens with Article 13, there will be a way around it. If it goes through it'll be rough for a lot of people, but a little preparation like this should help us all to weather it.

To help spread the word, I have written a tweet. Please reblog this tweet and spread the word.

P.S: Is anyone reading this a writer or artist who works on a commission basis? It might be worth us getting in touch so that we can stay in contact with one another. Let me now what you think.

Hey, this is Pekinaso here, and welcome to the Fantasy-Makers-of-DA! It's a pleasure to meet you. First, however, you need to learn the three basic rules of this group:

:bulletpink: You can use whatever medium desired to create fantastical art (yes, it must be fantasy-based, otherwise I would not have named this group "Fantasy-Makers-of-DA").
:bulletpurple: Be respectful to anyone and everyone! I will not tolerate any sort of hate here.
:bulletblack: Make sure your artwork follows DeviantART's rules (you can check out their FAQ to see what is and what isn't allowed; for example, no pornographic material).

That should be all, so enjoy and have fun! :D

Yeah, I was just wondering and noticed there's no button to add anything to the folder. Hope you can sort it out, I'm not sure why that's the case. It also seems like the literature folder has the same thing with it, though I'm not much of a writer myself.

This group always seems to have a problem with its subfolders, but I'll be sure to take a look at it and try to fix it
