Clean up dA campaign stamp by Roxcessories Clean up dA campaign stamp by Roxcessories
While I'm not on the hardcore bandwagon, there are days that I really get sick and tired of the shit that people post on here. I'm not talking about art mediums I'm not attracted to, or things I don't like as personal preferences. I'm talking about the garbage that is posted in the galleries like extremely blurry web cam images of things that you aren't even sure what they are, and half done pencil drawings on the inside of school library book that is photographed with a camera phone.

AGAIN- I am NOT talking about people who are making an effort to sprout their artistic wings. I'm talking about people who don't give a shit about what they post. There is a difference.

well, i'm not sure i can call myself an artist - when i look at awesome people manipulating pencils, paint, 3d progs, cameras or word processors like magic, i would consider my poor attempts at whatever like crap. NONETHELESS, i agree 200% about the doodles - my 3y.o. old niece is far better gifted - the talentless+aimless snapshots including the biggest plague called selfies, and other stuff belonging directly into a bin, be it digital or handcrafted ~
a minimum of work, of involvement should be considered, even if the results aren't ripe for front paging and might never be...

I try to take good photos all the time, even when I'm just taking a picture of a piece of paper with a drawing on it (because I don't have a scanner). I take five pictures at least, trace over my drawing in pen (which is hard because I'm bad at tracing and the pen often bleeds on the paper, so my picture is ruined/enhanced hopefully), then upload it explaining why it's not as good as it can be. I'm an ametuer, only practice will help us improve.

You never mentioned demotivationals.

For shame. D:
BlackberryFinn Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012
Some demotivationals are actually good.
ThisUsernameIsInUse Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012
Doesn't matter. This is an art site, not 9gag, and it automatically gives you copyright over your uploads. So everyone who posts demotivationals here containing pictures they don't own is technically a criminal, and non-technically an idiot.

It's fine if people put their junk in scraps, but when they act like a little brat and refuse, I report them.
wisekidk Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010  Student Filmographer
At least like put them in scraps. I have no problem with those type of pics on deviantart, as almost every artist starts with crap, but you still don't need thirty shots of the same angle. A little quality control plz :icon8buckplz:

Also, beautifully animated stamp. Most black and white stamps are plain and drab, but you definitely make up for it with all those effects :thumbsup: I would fix the border up at the top though :B

But good message and great stamp.
Fuzzyfur Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2010
So? People can post pics, rite?
That MUST be the reason there is a "photography" catagory fail -_-"
SanzosKitten Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2010
But they're not talking about photographs with artistic merit, they're talking about something somebody didn't even try to create. Something without artistic merit in the least.
Cam shots with a phone are not artistic in nature because the person isn't even trying. They are meant for Myspace and photobucket.

Though I understand DeviantART allows people to express themselves with no restrain, I'm going to say that this is an art site- meant for art.

this one is funny^^
JustSheir Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2010
Asmuch as I agree it's deviant art, not photobucket ect with the posting ofwebcam pics, maybe a few to your scraps? One or two that's fine-

I have to draw the line on 'doodle son your shoes taken from a phonecam'. SO WHAT? People doodle on paper and scan it in, what's the diffrent if it's used with a camera phone or on sothign ther than paper, it's still ART.
Some may t be art- but a lot very well is, and it IS harder to draw on shoes than a scrap of paper, andif it comes out good then why not share it? People share their dodoles on paper so why cna't they show their shoe-doodles, it's still art.
And it's not crap -that's jsut insulting to those who DO work hard on such things.
Penxdragon Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012  Professional Writer
I feel like I must add on to this. I agree with !JustSheir about the shoes. I also must add that camera phone shots should not be counted out simply because they are not from some digital camera or fancy expensive piece of equipment.

Someone might be a striving photographer and the camera on their phone might be the only thing they have available to them. I know it's all I have available to me.
Yes, you have a point when you say picture that they don't even try with or people who treat it like photobucket or myspace or whatever. But take a moment to really think and judge if they're really, sincerely trying because maybe camera phone quality is all they really have.
Kuwaizair Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2009
how darhh u insult the "soul" of DA's wonderful little talents.

maybe this is the crap that that blog site was talking about?

the cellphone shots of people's messy rooms and shoes.

I was browsing th galleries when I saw this, When it said "Myspace is that way" It pointed to a stamp that said "I support whatever pairings I want"
