The title is a reference to the Splatoon 2 Pearl's demo before she joined Off the Hook (#$@%* Dudes Be #$@%* Sleepin): Link

Some might be aware that last time DA "admins" decided to remove half of my Shantae pictures using the current restrictions of "erotic and fetish content" (Link ), based on the fact that the character is 16 in her "original context", Invalidating my depictions of an adult version of her, so I thought to myself...

What would happen if I tried the total opposite and drew a character that looks younger despite being older in its "original context"?

If you read closely, based on the wording of the current restrictions they give priority to the "context age" without any particular mention of appearance, hence why aged up versions are still technically not allowed. So, in theory, almost all depictions of characters like Pearl should be protected by the same policy, because she is in fact 21 in her "Original context" (It's true look it up), so any attempt of removing it using the same restrictions should be invalid.

Would they give priority to appearance over age if someone were to claim it?... Because last time I checked they removed more than 30 submissions from my gallery because of the age of a character, without any consideration of its appearance. 

Personally, I still think it's dumb to threat swimsuit pictures as if they were erotic or fetish content by nature, but I'm 90% sure that the removal of all my artworks didn't solely respond on the content itself, but rather the fact that it was reported by trolls... That doesn't change the fact that I should have been able to ask for a revision from DA staff if I thought they were making a mistake, because now I have my doubts if there's real humans behind the help desk of this site.

I'll now proceed to upload all my artworks as usual until I stumble into another hurdle, thanks for reading :)

Update: By November 30th this artwork was flagged for supposedly featuring Mature content, more details on this Journal: Link

It truly does suck what DA did man, the fact they keep allowing this stuff is insane, and how they refuse to catch onto how it can be abused. 

On that note, very clever and funny way of sorta getting back at the system man! Love the play on words with the title and even how this seems so in character for both of them to respond. Lovely work on the lighting too and even the shine effect done here!

What makes it more stupid is that Pearl and Marina are confirmed 21 and 18. >_<

Yeah, that's the funny thing. Based on the rules Pearl should be allowed, which is dumb because I always draw Shantae with more than adult proportions, but since she's not canonically of age it's not allowed XD

What's wrong with drawing her that way and saying "She's 18 here!"?

Deviantart has an explicit rule that doesn't allow aged up characters, they don't count,. If they're of a certain age in their original source they treat it as such.

Even when they become adults in their original source? That'd be just plain stupid.

I re-uploaded a couple yesterday, they already took them down even when they were filtered as mature content xP

They work by claims, I just wonder how many you need to get your stuff taken down.

I understand to some extend the idea of limiting the content on that regard.. but I can't help but feel we're all just wasting our time arguing about the supposed age of non-existent people XD I think this fictional characters will be okay at the end of the day, there's bigger issues out there to deal with XD

Yeah, I gave it a read now.

Taking fiction too seriously is not healthy, nobody gains anything from scrutinizing it like that, let alone some indie artist on a corner of the internet XP they won't have an impact on the bigger frame unless they're insanely popular.

This makes no sense since Senran Kagura images are apparently okay, despite the fact that 90% of the characters are under the age of 18.

Maybe the fan base of senran kagura cares less about the lewds, because that's the main feature of the series, While Shantae has some obsessed fans that don't want to see some type of content.

But there's official art of Shantae in a bikini, and all of the girls in slave Leia costumes. "Pirate's Curse" had her nude in a tub. I mean, there's nothing to see, but still.

Someone wrote me about not liking pirate's curse for the fan service, so there's people out there that don't like it even when the company does it.

It has to mean something when a drawing protesting the current ruling of DA art by taking advantage of its biggest loophole makes it to the front page. Either everyone agrees, or eeeeeveryone loves Pearl. ^~^
More than likely it's some combo of both.

Someone has already reported this one for having "mature content", I'm just surprised it took this little.

I haven't stumble upon RL pictures of those that you describe, but I have seen photos of very suggestive content without any filter on it and it's not that hard to finds honestly. My only guess is that not enough people report them to be an issue for the account and they stay there.

I filtered the artwork because I'm not sure what will happen if I don't, and I also can't ask for a revision because they only give me a warning:

i.imgur.com/f17upiQ.jpg

But I'm pretty sure last time I got a warning like this, they just removed the artwork, it would be interesting if it happens again. It would mean that it doesn't really matter what you do after it being reported it would still be removed.

I already added strong language and Sexual themes, but I think they're stretching it. I'm just letting you know in case it still gets removed.

I have no way of asking for a revision, or if the changes were enough, the warning doesn't change on my feed so I don't know how they know that I edited the picture.

I would be more open to remove all the content that could be considered suggestive about her if they didn't removed pictures that had nothing weird on them, or some that were just outfits that the game itself features.

twitter.com/LinkerLuis/status/…

Besides, I wasn't the only artist that went through it. The issue was more about false flagging than the content itself.

Yeah, Pearl, stick it to the mods who'd rather honor false child porn flags than take the time to do their jobs right and check to see each one and determine which is legit and which is a false report.
