Latest stuff by me, sometimes drawn for the purpose of being shown publicly or just random sketches I found collecting dust that I think people might enjoy.

Anti-Plagiarism and Anti-Tracing: Enlightenment
It's common knowledge to a lot of deviants by now that certain policies in deviantART has opened up loopholes that allows plagiarism of existing artworks, whether they are copyrighted or fan-made.
In response to this, a lot of deviants who are against plagiarism are very upset about seeing one plagiarism after another being approved as legitimate art and what follows is outrage from those who appreciate original artworks.
Although their motives aren't ill, they tend to get carried away, forgetting common sense and a lot of people who don't deserve it get caught in crossfires of the anti-plagiarists' anger.
This article is to educate anti-plagiarists on certain things they need to understand to reduce the amount of stray bullets in their rage against legitimatized plagiarism.
First of all, we all know that our most targeted issue within plagiarism is none other than unauthorized tracings of screenshots, scans, packaging and promotional artwork from popular animated series.

deviantART: Crack down on Copyrights
This community has come together on many occasions to sign a petition to help a worthy cause. I never imagined something would have to be started because of a problem within deviantART.
If you haven't read the latest CEA Update, I'd suggest taking a look at it before you e-sign anything. I'm petitioning this revision because I think it's opening a door that will ruin this community.
Allowing members of deviantART to copy, trace, or duplicate any copyrighted artwork is giving a mixed signal to growing artists. Whether or not it's done with the intention of practicing, the act of submitting it into an official gallery here on deviantART is copyright infringement.
If we would penalize these same deviants for copying an artist within the community--who discovers it and complains about it--then we should be penalizing them for copying all artists, as all artists have legal rights to their works.
Having the practice works moved to their own little area of deviantART could be tolerated

Keeping dA in the Hands of Artists
"I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."
-Helen Keller
With these words in mind, it's time for us deviantART members to do something about the spreading problem of art theft.
For those who don't know what art theft is: It's when someone claims that he/she made an artwork, when the artwork was actually done by someone else. It's becoming quite common these days. In particular, a lot of people have been uploading, copying or tracing copyrighted images (usually screenshots from anime and other TV shows, or pictures from comics and manga), and claiming that they "drew" the images. It is unfair to people who expend time, effort and creativity in producing their own art. It is also disrespectful to the original creators of the copyrighted images. Think about it: If you were a famous artist, would you be happy if someone took one of your artworks and said that h

Tracing. It Needs To Stop NOW.
First off I'd like to say... Just because you can trace a screen shot from your favorite anime, change the hair colour, and say it's your smexy new OC 'Naruta' DOES. NOT. MAKE. IT. ART.
We all know it happens. Thousands upon thousands of Deviations here at DeviantArt are traced, or vectored. And what do those dirty rotten tracing whores get for their thievery? Page views. Thousands, sometimes even millions of page views. But these aren't flame page views as you'd suspect. Nope. These are retards going 'OMG YUR ART IS SO KAWAII!!!^^ All yur haters can go die in fire!'. If you trace you deserve to have haters. And maybe YOU should go die in fire. Okay, I don't mean that, but I hate tracers.
TRACING IS NOT ART. No matter what you say. Sure, it takes a little time and effort to colour and shade that picture over. But only like 10 minutes of effort. Now, if you actually think of the art yourself, take the time to draw it yourself, and shade it yourself, then it's art and you deserve your pa

Comparison between TRACING and COMMON situations
So I see,some folks has started to trace then?
Since dA has started a new rule of allowing tracing then I will bring some examples to make sure IF TRACING WAS REALLY ALLOWED.
Hm,sorry guys...Maybe it'll sound weird and unprofessional but this is my first article...
---Why do you trace?
Tracing for some peoples are considered as FUN,TOLERATED,NORMAL.
But I am AGAINST it.Of course tracing can be fun,but WHY,just WHY do you upload it in dA?
Think about it,dA is an ART website,not some TRACING website.
You don't believe me?
You LOVE traces?
Then let's compare these situations:
-When you trace someone's artwork without their permission or not,it is considered as fraud.
You don't believe it?Then read the below:
If as well you considered trace as legal then what if...
-When you copy someone's homework without their permission or not,it is considered as fraud.
Then you'll say to the teacher:
Same thing as:

I am still drawing using traditional pencil & ink, while a lot of others have went with 100% digital.

Are there any benefits to using traditional methods or is it better to go 100% digital?

For me, I draw my works with traditional methods but coloring is digital.
Let's say you're in the middle of a long project, like maybe making a game or a 30-page comic.

But while you're busy doing the heavy stuff, you don't update your website.

Do you go out of your way to do some stuff just to have them posted to keep your galleries filled or continue focusing on the current project?

Some might suggest "show previews of your current project" but what if I want to keep it a secret until the very end?
If I'm doing comic pages all by myself (no assistants), I wonder which is the better order:

- Draw all pages first and revisit the pages for inking.

- Draw and ink as you go.
At the risk of sounding like a veeeeery life-like spambot, I wanna know which service is best if you wanna stream anime.

Should I go for Netflix or Crunchyroll?
What are the pros and cons for each of these service?

Are there any other services out there I should know of?

It's getting to be that time of year again.  Have you given any thought into your Chinese Zodiac Lisa & Akiko pic?  It's the year of dog this time and there's plenty of things you can do with that ranging anywhere from a "Dog Days" anime reference to even a werewolf theme if you really want to go out there.  But it's your choice all the same, and I look forward to seeing it.
