deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.comIt recently came to our attention that a website called Art4Love.com was offering prints for sale, some based off of deviations also found on deviantART.com (and perhaps other works by artists not on deviantART). Art4Love.com is currently offline, but was up long enough to make some artists very understandably upset, as neither the artists (we are told) nor deviantART ever gave permission for Art4Love.com to sell these prints.deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.com by hq
We've been tracking the exchanges of comments and journals about all possible infringing activity and are ready to provide information from our side that would help legal action that any of the affected artists decide to bring. We will also fully cooperate with any government agency that may become involved because of consumer complaints against this apparently infringing website and the people running it. We would also happily cooperate with any possible fraud investigations.
As a note of caution, we don’t have all the fa
A Toast to the Art ThievesPlease this news article, and help proclaim throughout the deviantArt community that Art Thieves are not welcome here! Gather round, one and all, and hear these words. Drop your butts and lift your glasses, this one's a doozy.A Toast to the Art Thieves by vest
Last month, the color-me-club held a coloring contest. For the first time in the club's history, we got a discouraging number of entries that were proven to be theft. People would take an existing contest entry, throw some hue/saturation wizardry on it, smear some dodge and burn, drop a spontaneous texture overlay on it, and attempt to call it their own thinking that the color-me-club is but a teeny-weeny #Group of novice digital artists.
Boy did they ever get their shit kicked in.
The fallout from disqualifying their entries and reporting them to dA staff is still descending. Yet enough time has passed from the contest's conclusion to make public my official

1. Please introduce yourself.
Hi, I'm Stacy, aka Caelest or ElvenCrystaline. I'm 23, married and in the military. I'm the head administrator of DollingClub and I'm also an admin in Free-dAvatars.
2. When did you first discover dolling and how long have you been dolling for?
I first discovered dolling way back in late 2002 when I found Xandorra. I didn't get too involved in it since I was still in school. I've only recently became more active in 2008 and have been ever since. I made a dolling timeline to show my progress over the years as well.
3. What has kept you dolling for so long?
I just love doing it. Plain and simple. If you love to

"Submissions that are deviantART related, including deviantIDs, deviantART tutorials, dA software skins, deviations about deviantART people, and more."
The deviantART Related gallery is broad and confusing when approached with unfamiliar eyes, and so we have decided to make a quick and easy breakdown of the gallery--with examples! Each section opens with words in italics; these are the official deviantART definitions of the gallery sections and are the first thing you must consider when submitting to the gallery. The rest of the guide has been written by the dA related GMs, to try and help clarify things some. So let's get to it!
> Deviant Stamps
--Stamps (when applied to deviantART) are deviations that premium members can display in their journals or modules on their userpages. These can range in size and shape; however, the standard size is 99 x 56 pixels.

I will update this continually throughout the rest of my term, and hopefully the next GM will see fit to do the same If you want anything added to this, please just comment and let me know =3

First off, we would like to welcome you to the Dolling Community on DeviantArt. We're a small community compared to other areas of the site, but we're very welcoming and encouraging of newcomers of all shapes and sizes. Due to the small size of the community, not many people seem to know much about us or our quirks and terminology, so we've compiled a brief guide to help you with dolling and where to post your dolls (as we are aware some of our categories are quite confusing).
On with the article!
What is dolling?
Dolling is where you take a basebody either created by yourself or by someone else and draw hair, clothes and accessories on it. A doll usually has a hard pixel edge and a transparent background so that it may be placed on any colored background website.
On DeviantArt, dolls are submitted into Customization > Dolls > and then into their subcategories of Pixel, Tool and misc shading.
I have been dolling on and off for a few years but I have only started getting back into it since 2007. I honestly do not know what my true dolling anniversary date would be but I think it is sometime around September of 2002. To see the progress I have made over the years, take a look at my -Dolling Timeline-. I am the current owner of -Miss Doll International- and you can find me on the -Glam!- forum and -PixiStar-. You can also follow my site for updates on -Twitter-.|
I am a miscat reporter and if you received a message from me, do not take it personally. I have no grudges against people unless they repeat the same mistakes over and over again out of spite. If you are confused about my short and blunt message, do not be afraid to inquire about it. I have a handy journal entry that outlines what I report and why. fav.me/d3kga3b
