Stuff is being Deleted

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 20, 2011, 2:38 PM

Reply from the DA staff :la:…


Shit is going down..... :iconkakapoplz::iconkakapoplzplz:

As people probably know by now, there is an influx of deviations being removed by staff. They are either tightening their standards or there is someone going around reporting them ( mainly Naruto based works) I have seen a bunch of the pics that were deleted and I have to say a few of them did not violate DA TOS ( but most of them did and needed to be removed )...Maybe DA hired a new admin :eyes: lololololol

I am guessing lots of people forgot the 'no aging up characters' rule. Merely stating a character is 18+ isn't enough on DA. The character will remain the age they were when they were first introduced. Honestly I hated this rule in the beginning BUT I understand why the admins did it. Its because there is a lot of stylistic variation and it is difficult to determine whether the artist actually tried to 'age up' the character.

Nothing of mine has been removed since I tend to like older characters ( and I removed all my stuff that had under-age characters long ago *mostly Ichigo* )

I am to lazy to make a list of who so go… for more info

I am pretty neutral on the whole thing though I find it weird that the admins are doing there jobs all of a sudden... I am not just whining aimlessly, I really like and respect this site but a while ago I reported a shit load of stuff and most of it got ignored, (under-age-erotica, explicit-pornography, Copyright infringing stuff) Why my reports the exception DA? WHY? :iconwhyyounoplz: But I forgive you.... :pat:

This is why it is important to read the TOS when you join a site... :no:

My Hinata picture just got removed for "Sexualized Minor," and the whole age thing in an anime is really opinionated, how do you judge age on a freaking drawing unless it is clearly a child or an adult? The Hinata I drew was very revealing but in my mind this was an older Hinata after the war and was clearly depicted as an adult yet was treated as if she was 12 years old. I see all kinds of child Hinata pictures that go almost too far that remain in place, and I also see a lot of older Hinata pictures with her in sexually suggestive themes that are are also remaining in place. So I do not understand why I was the one to get nabbed for a drawing of a WOMAN that was clearly mature to the point where she could not be classified as a child. The admin that got so easily offended left my edits and only removed my finished product which also leads me to ask why? Seriously if you go to my page you will see, give me your opinion if you want whether she looks like a child or not.

If it's honestly necessary I could even write the plot of the story in the box, this is after the war when Hinata was an adult blah blah blah. Seems ridiculious either way, but it does make sense too. Obviously some drawings cannot be upscaled age wise, but some are of obvious maturity and cannot be considered child pornography it is just ridiculious, it is not the same as a real life photo, there is either child or not child, no in between in my opinion when it comes to anime.

I am basically being classified as a pervert and it is on no way the same level as taking naked pictures of children. Seriously think about it, it is dumb, people have a right to let their imaginations run and imagine a character as an adult and draw them in any way they want as long as they appear to be an adult, or what should we draw our anime characters with ID cards in their hands stating I AM ABOVE 18.

Another thought dawned on me, what if someone drew a character that looked like the spitting image of a child but was 400 years old in the anime, point made. Rules of reality do not and can not apply to make-believe characters. Hopefully this opens some eyes cause it is silly.

wait what? " am guessing lots of people forgot the 'no aging up characters' rule." you're not allowed to age up characters on DA? ^o)

I am also shocked to see the admins doing their job but I am really glad they are. It says clearly that no underage models or anything thing sexual with minors are allowed. I find it ridiculous that people are acting like their rights were taken away...

This is a free website. It has always stated no underage minors etc so everyone has no right to complain. I understand that it sucks to have your stuff removed (And I strongly think the admins should of at least sent a warning before deleting it) but it said it in the rules. If you don't like it they can go to other art sites and do as you please. :] There's always SheezyArt for those who don't like how DA is right now.

PWAHAHA! My deviation of Axel kissing Roxas (from Kingdom Hearts) on the cheek was deleted for:
"the characters depicted in a nude or erotic fashion are established as being underage."

Its wasn't even a full body shot!

I'm gonna be honest, No matter what I draw, I don't draw skeletonal structure, I draw them naked first, then add clothes. And even when I don't, I like drawing people in the nude, but only when I make them do interesting positions, nothing sexual, but it's the different contours of the body that I like, like the curvature of the ribs to their hipbones, or shoulder/collarbone/craned neck.

... That's just making me sound creepy, isn't it?

Anyway, onto the actual topic, I can't draw any underage characters naked(I really shouldn't, I guess)and post it online, even if I'm just showing off their naval to head? Personally, I'm not a fan of drawing things where the sun don't shine, hell, the most I'd do is smaller cleavage(Insert cringe here).

I kind of agree, fanart is just fine by me, but some people let their imaginations go way too wild.

I don't understand .
So , if there's a child or baby character in a manga / whatever it may be . And you draw them as a regular 20 year old adult , they get deleted ? Even if it doesn't have nudity or any of that ?
