Update notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.
Update notice as of July 17th, 2015: Check out DeviantArt's new article on art theft, fanart, copyrights, and other relevant topics! http://protectart.de
I've been on dA for a long time (9 years with a long period of inactivity), and so starting a-fresh with a new username and clean gallery.
I'll be re-uploading old, but more current work, and hopefully updating more often. Meanwhile, here are also other links to my art elsewhere:
Tumblr: (my personal) letealeaf.tumblr.com
