Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I am currently on the road to becoming an artist, though I feel I am one already. There are going to be times when I might want to upload a picture here and there, but I love to do art because it is my most favorite thing to do in the world. Nothing makes me happier than to draw my heart out the pictures I have in my head, the imagination I hold. I always feel like I want to pour it out into the world and show them what I have, even though... I am modest about it.

Golden rule about my drawings:

Anything that I do not want shared, will not be under any circumstances uploaded on here for the public world to see. It will, and will always be, kept to those I give to or kept by me. It is set this way so anything I don't want "stolen" won't be stolen in the first place, because I did not upload it. Whoever I give the art to, is more than likely one of my friends.

Rule about commissions:

I rarely do commissions, but at times, I may be generous to do one, because I feel like it. If the person only wants the picture for themselves, then the above rule as stated will follow along.
NO EXCEPTIONS.

About the recent hate of what I've drawn in the past, you can go fuck yourself with a cactus. I draw what I fucking want to. You don't get to decide for me if it exists or not, if it's shitty or good, or if it's "stolen." When I do requests, it's only that person's opinion that's really worth it because I'm making them happy with it.

So either deal with it, or fuck off.

And since I'm no longer a Worlize global moderator, I CAN and WILL say this, since I no longer have to hold myself back. AND I AM ENTITLED TO MY OPINION!

To those who keep saying their art is "free", but excludes certain sites from it: that's not free. That means you have restrictions on that particular piece of art. It's a lie when you say it's free, and it makes you looks like one. Not to mention, it kinda makes you look like a dumbass when you start complaining if it was "stolen" or not. Just saying.

I've seen so many pieces of "free" art that have so many restrictions to it, it's not even funny anymore. In fact, it's heavily annoying. What would REALLY make a piece of art absolutely FREE, is if it had no restrictions on it in the first place. I actually hate it, no, DESPISE it - and I'm saying this one line on behalf of a LOT of people who decided to use these "free" art pieces - WHEN A PIECE OF ART THAT WAS ORIGINALLY FREE INSTANTLY HAS  FUCKING RESTRICTIONS ON IT, AND WHOEVER'S STILL USING IT "WITHOUT PERMISSION" IS AUTOMATICALLY PENALIZED!! NOBODY! And I repeat! NOBODY likes that!

I still see thread after thread of that shit on Worlize, and it's gotten to the point that I despise Deviantart in general, when it comes to some of their users. Quit being so goddamn stingy of your work and actually open up for once! You'd find that if you actually created something FREE, that was of GOOD QUALITY TOO, then a lot of people would end up using it, AND YOUR NAME WOULD BE MUCH MORE KNOWN TO THE PUBLIC. If there is work that you DON'T WANT people using, THEN KEEP IT OFF THE FUCKING ART SITE! It's NOT some people's faults if they didn't "read" the description on your deviantart page. Whose fault it's at is YOURS, and YOURS ALONE. If you wanted to let people know that your art was copyrighted so goddamn bad, ACTUALLY GO TO THE PLACE TO GET THE PAPERS FOR IT, AND THEN FUCKING WATERMARK YOUR PICTURE!! No, I am not defending people who purposely violate copyrights. I know the full length of how that goes, and I can understand it. But this is too far. There is something called the Fair Use Act, which specifically states this:


"One of the rights accorded to the owner of copyright is the right to reproduce or to authorize others to reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords. This right is subject to certain limitations found in sections 107 through 118 of the copyright law (title 17, U. S. Code). One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of “fair use.” The doctrine of fair use has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years and has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.

Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair.

  1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
  2. The nature of the copyrighted work
  3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
  4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work

The distinction between what is fair use and what is infringement in a particular case will not always be clear or easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.

The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: “quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author’s observations; use in a parody of some of the content of the work parodied; summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report; reproduction by a library of a portion of a work to replace part of a damaged copy; reproduction by a teacher or student of a small part of a work to illustrate a lesson; reproduction of a work in legislative or judicial proceedings or reports; incidental and fortuitous reproduction, in a newsreel or broadcast, of a work located in the scene of an event being reported.”

Copyright protects the particular way authors have expressed themselves. It does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in a work.

The safest course is to get permission from the copyright owner before using copyrighted material. The Copyright Office cannot give this permission.

When it is impracticable to obtain permission, you should consider avoiding the use of copyrighted material unless you are confident that the doctrine of fair use would apply to the situation. The Copyright Office can neither determine whether a particular use may be considered fair nor advise on possible copyright violations. If there is any doubt, it is advisable to consult an attorney."


Look at the numbers and the paragraph in bold. I don't know about you, but I think that proves my point. To those who thought up of watermarking all their drawings in the first place, I thank you. That made my former mod job a hell of a lot easier, other than studying people's galleries for copyrighted artwork left and right.

You want to know how ridiculous all this copyrighted shit has gotten? Almost nobody is allowed to wear "furries" anymore. And, not only that, a lot of other categories are following suit. When I was working with deleting copyrights left and right, I used to work on that shit nonstop for 8-10 hours on end, without any sort of breaks. When I normally got done, I was so stressed to the point that the other Worlize mods had to force me to take a week or two off. That's how bad it was, and it's getting worse. It gets so much unneeded attention, that it gives countless people headaches just mentioning of it. Well then, maybe we should just cut everything out and make everything BLACK AND WHITE, like this journal. Actually, that's how it is, color-based. It's all so black and white. Either you're with the people who "steal", or you're with the people who "are defending their work." I'm going to say that I am on NEITHER side, because BOTH ARE ACTING HEINOUSLY STUPID.

If you had a piece of art, say like, one of those delta "Wolfhome", or "Chatland" avatars, honestly, why the hell are you putting it up on Deviantart? Just keep it at the fucking site where it's supposed to be. You don't NEED to advertise it all over Deviantart. If that's how it's done, then forgive me. But there needs to be some improvements with that. That's where most of the problems come in. Most of these "furries" that I keep seeing, and are labeled "copyrighted" or "for sale", ARE FUCKING PLASTERED IN DEVIANTART WITH NO SORT OF WATERMARK/INDICATION AT ALL THAT IT'S FOR SALE! GROW SOME BRAINS AND STOP BEING LAZY. WATERMARK IT! DO SOMETHING WITH IT! WRITE YOUR NAME ALL OVER IT! WRITE THE PRICE ON IT! FOR THOSE WHO PAY FOR IT, GIVE THEM THE ORIGINAL COPY!!! MAKE THE ONE ON DEVIANTART A FUCKING PREVIEW OF IT FOR CHRIST'S SAKE! I'm not asking you this. I'M TELLING YOU! IF YOU WANT THAT COPYRIGHT PROBLEM TO DISAPPEAR, HELP BY PLASTERING SOMETHING ALL OVER YOUR "DELTA" "COPYRIGHTED" FURRY FUCKIN' AVATARS! THAT INCLUDES OTHER ART THAT'S "FOR SALE"!! I can GUARANTEE you, that the problem will then only be minuscule. It will then show up on Google after some time, and the person will eventually notice that it IS in fact, copyrighted and not free. The major problem is Google and the other search engines. Why do you think so many people "steal" art? They don't want to have to click another link to check and see if it's copyrighted. Humans nowadays are lazy as shit, and you KNOW I'm right on that. I'm sorry, but that's just the truth. SHOW THEM that it's not free, BY WRITING THE FUCK ALL OVER IT.

Here, as an example, I will even show you how that could look:
(LINKS/THUMBNAILS PROVIDED BELOW ARE ONLY BEING USED AS AN EXAMPLE, NOTHING MORE.)

One of an anthro:
.Freebie. Reading by ScarlettFeather

Another one (More blatantly obvious in this one now.):
.Chat Pose Commission. xXSilentCrowxX by ScarlettFeather

Comic watermarking (I actually highly recommend this, if you want to make it painstakingly clear to them.):
Adventures With Jeff The Killer - PAGE 107 by Sapphiresenthiss


(Both anthros belong to Deviantart user ScarlettFeather, whom her art is fantastic. Comic "Advantures With Jeff the Killer" (AWJTK) is Sapphiresentthis, whose comic is full of never-ending comedy and creativeness.)

Can you see Sapphiresentthis's claim at the bottom? That's also an idea to plaster on your art too. And yes, of course. I've mailed both about using their artwork as an example to this rant, if you were wondering.

Have you seen some of those stock images, when you're searching up on a search engine, such as "illustrationsof", "dreamstime", "shutterstock", "123rf", etc.? Watermark it like how they do. Or you can learn from the examples as shown. Now look back to that last sentence in bold. Now look back at the WHOLE rant. Did I make myself clear yet?

If you thought "yes", then my rant's work here is done. If you thought "no", then I have no other idea on how I should get it through that humongously thick skull of yours. I know there are some people who you just can't reason with. I mean, come on. The world is filled with numerous assholes. Dare I say, that I might even be one of them. 

Here's my last paragraph before I bring this rant to a close. Obviously what has been seen, cannot be unseen. If only the people who are not wanting others to use certain types of their art without permission, just WATERMARK all their stuff, then maybe the problem might diminish some, or more than halfway. Hell, if you need to, just watermark it all to hell so people can hardly see it. Just do SOMETHING to let people know that IT'S NOT FREE! That doesn't mean write it in the description. That means WRITE IT ALL OVER THE PICTURE ITSELF. You can add the notification in the description, if it were for Deviantart. For people who are "selling" anthros and the like, my idea stills stands. Make the picture a preview first, and then gift the ones who pay for it. I don't care how the hell you do it, just do it. Darken the image and write "0.07 Delta", or "PREVIEW", or "(INSERT USERNAME HERE MULTIPLE TIMES)". Or I don't know, maybe just put it in a weird as fuck style and then label it like so, or something.

And that is it for this long as fuck rant. If you just decided to skip all this and go to the very bottom, to me you are no more than an inattentive fucktard who is too impatient to read the whole thing. If you're just viewing the comments, then I don't know why you're on this journal in the first place.

  • Mood: Rant
Certain things have happened that I'm not proud of. Things that I hate that have happened. Things that have depressed me and pushed me to want to attempt suicide. I can't do something like that though...

If I happen to upload the next few drawings, all I can say is beware. During a recent incident that has happened, my drawings are going to look more... dark and grim than they have been. Some may jerk a few nerves of people. Others may be a bad idea in general to look at. I've been doing a couple of vent art drawings lately, so with that, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt. If I need to add a warning, a restriction or some shit, I suppose just tell me. I can't read minds.

.... So tired... haven't gotten a wink of sleep from feeling so troubled. I'm going to TRY to rest my eyes, unless I want them to be hurting all day from exhaustion...

Angel Wings (With a Twist) by Devious-Archangel
Angel Wings (With a Twist)
Wing base is not mine, though it is free, as I've made sure of. Sadly, I don't remember the location where I found it at.

The style IN the wings is also not mine, but a piece of fractal art I used that belongs to Thelma1.

Here's the original: Fantasy Sparkles


Yes, I did request permission to use it, so please, do not label this submission a form of art theft.


This is only one of the many examples I've made work for the wing bases I've collected. Enjoy. No copyright infringement intended in any way or form.

Sarcasm can be heavily overwhelming sometimes.

... Do I smell kerosene?

Nevermind that. Anyway, yes, I happen to be sick... sick like a damn dog waiting for it to be put out of its misery, though that'd just be me exaggerating. I've caught the swine flu once, so nothing compares to that. It really sucks shit when you feel like you have no energy whatsoever. Being under bed arrest while having a cold that doesn't seem to be getting any better, or so I think, and pain in three areas of my body. Even as I'm typing this out, I feel like sleeping, though I can't even shut my eyes for one moment TO try to attempt to doze off. Must be signs of insomnia. I probably shouldn't stay sitting up for long. I kinda ache. It hurts. It really does. If there's a specific type of pain I cannot get myself to stay calm over, it's when there's pain at my lower back that feels like it's right at the spine.

... That's probably a bad sign, isn't it? Probably is. Though sadly, I can't afford such a doctor's appointment to check every single little problem of mine out. Maybe later down, I might, but obviously not now when I'm at the verge of probably going without internet for a while. If I'm not heard from in three days whenever it happens, it's probably that reason, or it'd be because I've gotten damn sick enough to where I could probably be put in the hospital. You never know.

Oh well. I feel I should get back to bed.

Yes. I quit. I'm stepping down from my moderator position. As it might come as a shock to some of you, I almost don't exactly give much of a shit. I also am not obliged to explain why I have resigned my moderator position. With that in mind, please do not come to me for anything that deals with moderating on the site, much less even the forums. I will not help you in that area, as it is not my place to. Go to another moderator for that.

Thanks for noticing and have a good day/night.
