Hope to meet you there.
I've packed my stuff as well. I did notice that DeviantArt is becoming more of a habit than anything else but I was too lazy to change things. Now that many of my favourite artists here left and another turned out to be an art stealing imposter I decided that I've got only very few things holding me here. This place seemed like a 'gallery' to me... with how things stand now I see it more like a 'playground & pornstorage for everybody'. Reason to that are those awesome kickass features like the Llamas, Muro and dA ignoring own policies regarding obvious, simple porn content.
Funnily enough I got a DD yesterday on an older image of mine which amused me alot because of 'high grade' discussions with idiots that once in a decade take their time to comment someone's work...based on one 'particular' emotion rather than logical critism. It's wa

Group Abuse: Killing our CommunitiesGroups! What a great feature on deviantART. They kicked off last year and have been a huge success. Nothing but good has come from the groups system or has it? I can tell you that right now under the layer of hype lies a deep, dark problem that's slowly killing our communities, unknown artists, and our ART. I'm going to tell you my own story, then explain.
I'm the founder of a large photography group here on deviantART. We've been using the groups system since the very first day they officially released. At the time of this writing, we have almost 3600 members. We've grown rapidly to become one of the largest and most successful photography groups around. As a founder, it's always interesting to see how your group is doing. It's a lot of fun to look at statistics, new members, submissions, and comments. Until now.
We had an excellent discussion in our group chat debating the following issues. Together, we came up with these issues and decided to raise them to the communit
Image theft: Helpful info and interviewLately, over the last few months, and really, over the last few years, there has been a lot of talk about image theft, and copyright infringement. There is little that can be done about it, its just a fact of eLife they say.. It is if you let it. There are several ways to combat image theft, be it in photoshop, or in the court room.
So you've been ripped.. Now What?
Firstly, let me say that image ripping is wrong, but we all rip music, so there is also the debate about that.. Is it wrong? Some argue the fact that people are collecting your work, using sites like flikr to collect their favorite images into one place.. Is that wrong? YES. deviantART offers free accounts with a favorite option.. Which i have seen many an account with only favorites.
That leads us to blogs. One of my images was used on an emo blog based in Russia, i couldn't understand anything, but after having it translated, m
How to make your uploads StrongerHow to make your uploads Stronger
This is a guide to making your uploads more individual and taken more seriously.
Not a absolute answer guide, just some suggestions.
* Try not to upload 10 images in a row, make sure you only upload 1-2 each day.
People need time to look through their center and if you upload to much, they are most likely to jump over a few of them.
The other thing is that it might seem to people that you just snapshot and upload right away, even though you might used a lot of time on it.
*What title should i give my image? Make sure you give a title you think suits the image, a image with a strong title makes the artwork
itself better and change the way people see the theme and concept.
My suggestion is that you think about the feeling you had when you worked on the image, or the feeling you want the image to show.
Let`s say you worked on a painting that reminded you about your childhood. You there have many titles; Childhood

100 Things I've Learned About PhotographyWe've all had our humble beginnings as photographers [or artist for that matter] and since starting our photographic journey, we've learned a lot of things along the way.
I asked our members at Photo--Assignment to share one thing, one tidbit of advice to share with other photographers; these advices are listed below [I think we do have 100!].
Feel free to continue this list by add your own comment below! And be sure to this article for safe keeping for future reference!
"Take your camera with you everywhere, you never know when that perfect photo will happen."
"Changing the F numbers and shutter speeds can make a world of difference."
"If you want real emotion, never ask someone if you can take their photo. Just do it."
"The floor is your friend. Don't be afraid to get close to it to get new, inte
About DDs, GMs and Admins-What you Should have KWhat you should have known...
...Before Posting that comment
on the newest DD that you thought was "undeserving" of a DD.
Daily Deviations are a 24 hour feature. Nothing more.
GMs select DDs based on their own feelings towards a piece of art. As artists themselves, they do not always reflect every deviants beliefs and views of art1.
A deviant receiving a DD does not have any say in the matter. In fact they probably didn't know they even had a chance at getting a DD!
...Before sending that GM a disrespectful note
about their newest given DD.
Gallery Moderators are volunteers
GMs are human just like you
GMs feature art they think is amazing. If they featured it they had a reason behind it.
Using Swear words and disrespect tends to get you ignored instead of an answer. Try writing a GM with respect.
Try seeing it their way from t
Is online piracy hurting or supporting artists?I am a happy artist who pays his rent thanks to FREE exhibitions of my work on the internet, including this awesome website.
My art and comic book (http://www.rom.ac) is now famous around the world because people share the images I create through blogs, torrents, wallpapers and re-posts.
I allow everyone to download and view my paintings and comic book for free on the internet. If someone who likes the digital version of my painting wants to buy a printed version, they pay me or a publisher who's authorised to print my work, which in turn cuts me a % from the print sales of this painting. At the same time I can put up a couple of nice, non-intrusive commercials into my online exhibitions that I myself approve of, and that will pay for the rest of my expenses.
I believe the same "Free digital content" policy should apply to all digital media arts. If the public likes the content, they WILL buy a solid copy of it from the artist. There are people who will love, cherish and support the ar
