its totally different if the person is a photographer or if there is something special about it that is somewhat related to an art form. but seriously, i really dont care how 'cute' someones dog is or how 'hot' some random blegh is. this is dA. put these photos on ur facebook or somethin'
blegh = random anything (i lieks to express some things with sound effects)
Art theft is the greatest theft of all. A person pours their heart and sould onto paper, a fragilent, mortal form, expressing themselves as the individual that they are, seperate from every other being in existance. Even if they make a zillion peoples' hearts flutter with delight, someone walks along and says it's their own, even if no one believed them it is a cruel deed to deprive someone of their emotion. Art is a child, a helpless, confuzed state that takes so much time and effort to form, yet can be destroyed in a single instant.
I hope the 37 who actually asked "What's wrong with uploading a picture you think is cool?" are banned from this community of truth. Art is the enemy of anyone who claims it theirs.
Well i think they should post their own work but a friend on deviantart once posted something that wasn't theirs and apologived for it. The only reason they did it is because they wanted to show the pic to other bleach fans.
im not really gonna cote, but yeah i dont like it when people just post a bunch of random pictures of like, their birthday with their friends. if its like, actual photography of a person like one of those like portrait pictures, or if its edited nicely thats fine. if its cosplay, thats fine, if its a landmark thats fine. but if its of your mom hugging u in front of the capitol.......NO ONE WANTS TO SEE IT. because theyre most likely searching for something better than ur mom. thats my opinion.
I sorta have mixed feelings about that, theres the whole (if you dont like it dont look) but then again its clutter and takes up space on the DA server. So its prob best to upload that kinda stuff on facebook or photobucke.
I totally believe you should only post your own pieces, but I do believe dA should have a category so if you upload something ppl will know it's not yours.... there have been times I need an image for my journal, but I can't upload it, being I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pull a stunt, and claim I am the creator.
Naruto pics is very popular into the art thieves, trust me. Luvy scenes or not, they stolen of my gallery simply chibis!! Even change the colors for say that is their OC.
I reported to staff of dA and they deleted it. And some youtube people put the link of my gallery in the description... But this is only with the people I find. I feel fear thinking about how many people has stolen my art -_-
Well... ._. i guess oc are ok for me , i mean who doesnt have one lol ? well not everyone but some do have and it's fun to make them , i mean some of the ideas are ours and i guess you can call that art in some ways lol xD, anyway im not that good yet at line-arts so i use ( with permision) other line-arts to practice some coloring ._. we aren't all born talented after all >.> i guess pratice brings exp , anyway about uploading "cool" pics lol .-. i'm not really a fan of that lol xD as everyone says photobucket is better for that xD
in my opinion, even if they suck at drawing *cough*me*cough*, they should consider that it's called DeviantART for some reason! i wouldn't mind if they just have an account to make comments, that's ok, but stealing and editing others art, well, that makes me angry
I am against all forms of stealing but I would accept edits only if 1) the the character in it would be completly redrawn, not just blast different hair color or somethig similiar shitty thing, 2) needs to ask permission of the original artist if possible (if it is from fanart) and 3) always provide a link to the original.
and even photobucket cannot steal, just no one knows that
One of my pet hates here. So many seem to think that because you can see so many screenshots and edits here that they're allowed. Some blame dA for allowing them or not doing anything about it, but if they're not reported nothing happens, and even so it'll take a while. I love original fanart, and prefer technically poor but lovingly done fanart to a screenshot anyday.
Edits If: * the edit is signigicant, so it realy is something you made after all * with the original authors permission and/or (or in the case the author doesn't respond) mention the authors name and original finding place
yes what is wrong with uploading cool pics you found... as long as you say they are not yours... i think it should be fine... but everyone say diffrent things... so i don't really mind... anyway there is still a lot of good artist... but i guess its up to da... what every they chose... we have to follow...

When ever I go onto photo bucket I never trust anything on there. For one I saw this [link] picture on 10 different photo bucket accounts asked all the people "is this yours" they all said yes The original artist is a user on here.
It's funny you should post a poll like this one because I've been raging about it a lot in the last few weeks. I hate having to ask myself "wait... are they the real artist here?" whenever I find artwork to my taste. Some people just miss the entire concept of Deviant Art. Then again, you'll always find morons wherever you end up on Internet... I just wish we could get rid of them HERE for good.
ok, who voted the option 'what's wrong with uploading coll pics i find' because that is just annoying ><
dA is an art site for artists! its not photobucket! some edits i find ok although dA doesn't (like motivational posters, icons, wallpapers, things like that. if fanart is used, i expect permission to be asked). though there are some edits i wish would burn to a crisp. i hate it when people use my fanart and cover it up poorly using ms paint and posting it up and claiming it's theirs! ><
if they want a site like photobucket, then USE photobucket! it's not a hard concept! ><
He have a lot of amazing drawings... but that amazing works belong to SYMPIN so... it's really sad. And if I report it the staff says me something like "if you don't are the original author.. then your report it's not valid"
(clik on MAIN for see her works)
You can see the great (original) author here: [link]
