My Bio

I started to draw when I was just a toddler. Even then, I was drawing anthros. I started to write when I was about 17. I no longer do it because I have too much to do and not enough time! I started photography later in life, when I was able to buy some equipment. Same for digital drawing/painting. These days, I do mostly digital art and photography, although I don't take the time to upload my photographs much.

I am a software analyst/engineer/developer. For me, art is a hobby. My goal, when I draw, is to have fun. Photography is an excuse to go out for a walk. I am on DeviantArt mostly for the community. These days, I'm into ARPGs (Art Role Play Games).

Favourite Games
World of Warcraft
Tools of the Trade
Photoshop CC and Wacom Intuos 4
Other Interests
Anime, Manga, Horror, Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Animals, Anthro, Bats, Gargoyles, Nature, Harry Potter/Slytherin

Twitter conversion between @arvalis and DA about DeamUp and the AI situation

Hello all! Long time no see. There are some confusion going around about this article. I'll try to help a bit for what I've gathered from the staff. About DreamUp DreamUp is an image-generation tool (an AI) able to generate images from prompts. It uses images from datasets to "learn" how to draw, reusing parts or style of images to create new ones. First thing to know is that... DeviantArt did not, does not, and will not use deviations submitted to DeviantArt to add to third-party AI models or training sets, or on DreamUp itself. Meaning your art will not automatically be used for DreamUp. DreamUp is actually using a third party dataset, not the DeviantArt database. DreamUp makes use of Stable Diffusion, a third-party AI model trained on image datasets gathered by LAION from across the internet. But if you've submitted your art on other sites, it's not impossible that your art might be in the LAION datasets or any other dataset used by other AI. About the Protection Against AI As
