Just wanted you guys to know how I run things here on deviantart. I know for some reason got very surprised about the recent events.
And due to that let me relink you to my rip off policy.
I will steal your design and sell it. Is my answer : I to this strange stuff thats been happening.I want you to read this.
SO my watchers, customers, friends, supporters and cool peoples. If you see any fake version or rip off and such, don't interact with them. Just link me and i'll blacklist them. : D and I'll paint a much better and beautiful version of it and sell it. Oh i'll just change one little detail of it too.
** I will also find your Orignal character that you hold dear and sell a better version of it.
I know what its like to have your characters and ideas stolen made for profit. Right now someone makes 2000 dollars a month off me : I. I don't appreciate it if its being done to my customers, my supporters, and my peeps.
I think its time for you guys to learn what it's like to be profited off from. I'll be the unclassy one.
If anyone else wants to get in on this plan but want to keep it quiet just contact me on skype.
I mean there's others ways to get fame and money and create meaningful artwo
And understand I take this very seriously. There are some criteria I will do before I run this policy.
1. I will check with whoever is currently on with my taum squad.
2. I will check with the owner of the taum.
3. I will review all details.
-Is there gallery a mess of different styles and only adopts?
-Is it painted all the sudden compared to normal are work they done? Is the bg of the creature suddenly very different than all their other work?
-Is it part owl or bird the same as the taum?
-Is it the same colors ? patterns? Like literally if its just the same base and with a bit of maybe changes here and there thats a yes to me.
-Does it have the double mouth all of the sudden when nothing in gallery has one?
-When is it's date of posting? (if close or too close)
Each answer will create a yes or no, and the taum owners/taum squads reaction if negative, will affect my judgement.
Then i will run it or not. And understand I will do the same thing as the offender does. I will take all the colors and design and reshape it. Different bone structure, texture and all. Or same structure with slightly off colors.
Now you are free to judge to see if you like this policy. Any second offenders, I will do this and next time I will do it with full on MOXY of real money.
Now understand that this policy is very different. It's an eye for an eye tooth for a tooth policy. And I personally find this policy the best way to combat thievery here on da. Deviantart is known for its theft, it was a long 2 years before I brought taums over cause.. well yeah.
But as time went on I created stuff to help the artists and my watchers get better than those who rather do cheap shitty things. You guys have been great. I've been able to share my advice, in hopes that one day you guys will beat the crap out of my art. To be better than me, my taums, and my own self.
What if I told you [Updated]that you could have more watchers, have greater art, have commissions, and be cooler than me? Cooler than other artists that are your idols, your inspiration.
You can! heck most of you got the potential to be! Just have to deal with time and work.
In the meantime, I decided to compile up my advice here into an easy access journal for all you guys. Some artists have commented on these as well sharing their experiences and though process. If you are ever bored or do want that information go ahead and give these a read!
1. Death Months (when commissions will always be scarce)
2. Drop Point Commissions (for those who wondering why they can't get cash)
3. Know Your Limit
Heck maybe one day you'll be able to create a better policy than me on this thing but so far not so much : D.
I mean a lot of peeps out there who don't currently watch me follow this kind of thought process here:
Chasing Money and fame :D a how to.**thought i'd share with you guys my powerful awesome knowledge. (again)Be wary of these folks y'know they actually do this Xd..
Want money? want fame?
Look whats popular out there! see it study it! copy it! Copy the hell out of it!
Who cares about making your art good! if you can make cheap copies of what you want for money who caresss!! MONEY FAME MONNNEEEHHHH!
PEOPLE WILL LIKE YOUUU! yes! just by this you can get all the favs and watches and all the popularity!
JUST FOLLOW MY FOOTS STEPS AND I SHALL LEAD YOU TO THE FAME AND MONEEEHHH
Who cares about doing art for yourself. Who cares about studying up and making your art better and nicer! its not about art! NO. NEVER. its about selling adopts for the rest of your life.
Anatamy? WHat You don't need that shit! Kick it to the curve. Anime is all you need! since thats popular!!
Also remember to use other peoples ideas!! : D I've given someone ideas before! They gets lots of money for it! SO you guys can follow that same path!
If you have
its a joke but it's real.
On side note clearly my policy doesn't win me browny points. But if I was worried about how I looked to others I wouldn't be here as I am right now would I ?
So fellow artists, who have given me their time of day to understand.. Thank you! And if you feel like this stuff does offend you or you feel unsafe please know that I'm sorry to have made you feel that way.
Also know if you ever have a burning need to do a taum, you can always freely due fanart of them thats.. usually the best way to fend off those feelings.
Side note: lesson here is just don't steal : D and this will never have to happen. I'm heading out for a date so, just calm down a bit before ya post Xd
Hoo boy! Okay pt.2Alrighty. Alrighty.
So. My policy is fake, false, a harsh cruel joke.
A lesson. Its a full on simulator, or simulation of how it will feel like to be stolen from and profited from. It's all a magic illusion. or a prank.
So. Here is the process:
Someone steals a taum. I get note, i chat with everybody on taum squad and taum owner. If negative. I will create an exact copy but not exact copy of the person's oc or adopt.
When that happens I have a group of people. A bunch of friends who will bid on this! So no random stranger gets the adopt. It literally wouldn't sell or make money or profit.
They win the fake adopt, and then i delete it and go to the artist and talk about what happened and how it felt like and then moving forward the artist will move forward hopefully with doing new art and being themselves instead of chasing money and fame.
So.. if thats too long to read and its tough..
This is what i was doing.
I'm sorry i was
