Photography Troubleshooting: The Watermark FAQ
"How do I protect my photography and art in general?" ~Tahog (https://www.deviantart.com/tahog) "As Tahog (https://www.deviantart.com/tahog) pointed out, at least 1 journal per month makes it to the top of the list and is about stealing art. Sometimes this is something small such as posting a piece to facebook, other times you see hoards of pieces on a  website selling wallpapers or something similar. Regardless of how it happens, or where, it can hurt just as much to see your hard work disregarded and especially someone else profiting or taking credit. Protecting work is a huge deal for some people, and not for others. It depends entirely on your outlook - how you view your work and indeed
my deviantart story :D
My first time on deviantart was 7 long years ago, on my first account, silentsasuke (https://www.deviantart.com/silentsasuke) here is my first dA upload! :thumb37836144: I joined because I was playing on a site called gaiaonline and I saw people had included links to their deviantart accounts in their signatures in the forums, and it piqued my interest. Since I was beginning to draw art for people on there, I wanted to start a gallery too (aside from my photobucket account - I maxed out some albums with all my uploads lolololol) I was a mouse user during the whole time on that old account. I used programs like open canvas 3 and MSPaint, as well as my scanner for pen and pencil draw
Do's and Dont's of writing good Fanfiction
Alright, its confession time. From the age of eleven to thirteen, I read and wrote Harry Potter Fanfiction. I know, it's a shock, but remember that I was at that age! The writing was crappy; the reasons for writing base (all my friends will testify that Fanfiction gave birth to my severe crush on Sirius Black, which ended up with me writing a fic simply so I could include myself and my friends during the Marauder's schooldays…. Yeah… I know, Mary-Sues are not pretty) and the general storyline lacking in focus. Well, maybe it was the stress of the past few weeks, maybe it was the fact that now the original Potter series is over

Blue Tree in Open Field by SethFitts
"A definition of "printmaking" according to the Encyclopedia Britannica:
"...broadly, the production of images normally on paper and exceptionally on fabric, parchment, plastic or other support by various processes of multiplication; more narrowly, the making and printing of graphic works by hand or under the supervision of the artist."

Multiple Originals
A fine art print is a "multiple original." That is to say, usually within the confines of a limited edition, the artist conceives and executes his work specifically in the context of one or another of the serial techniques: etching, woodcut, silk screen, lino cut, etc. Most artists feel that the technique itself adds a new dimension to an original work of art, transforming a mere drawing into something more sublime through one or another of the processes of serial reproduction". (from www.worldprintmakers.com/engli…)
