Common Pixel Art MiscategorizationsAfter working with the Pixel Art category for a bit now, Ive run into quite a few common miscategorizations that appear a lot in the Pixel Art Category. To try to answer a few questions and prevent some confusion there might be, I thought it would be good to go over some common misplacements I see and explain where these pieces should go.Common Pixel Art Miscategorizations by `armaina
Isometric vs Non Isometric
The first point Id like to cover is more a confusion within the Pixel Art Category itself, the difference between Isometric and Non-Isometric pixel art. If you are new to pixel art, it is likely that you are not sure of what these two categories mean, and how to categorize your own work. To clarify, isometric pixel art is pixel art that is done in a near-isometric dimetric projection. In more general terms, this is pixel art that is drawn at a very specific, 3-dimensional angle. Games such as the Disgaea series and the online community Habbo as well as Furcadia all use a
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
DeviantART is NOT PhotobucketIf you agree with this article, please fave it and spread the word!DeviantART is NOT Photobucket by ~urpwn3d
Greetings, fellow deviants. Today, I would like to clear up a misunderstanding that seems to be very frequent among new and not-so-new members alike:
DeviantART is NOT an "image hosting website" (like Photobucket, Flickr, Imageshack, etc.) DeviantART is a website where artists can showcase their own work -- pictures, photographs or writings that were made by themselves, from scratch. Anything else has no place here on dA.
Here are a few examples of what is considered unacceptable under dA's policy:
A user finds an artwork, or a collection of artworks, on Google or Photobucket. They upload the artworks on dA because "they want to show these beautiful images to other people, too". This is also unacceptable, even with a disclaimer such as "I didn't make this" or "I found this image on Google".
As long as you're not the original artist, don't upload it here. Otherwise, sooner or later your
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
Guide to the deviantART Related Gallery!The deviantART Related GalleryGuide to the deviantART Related Gallery! by ^ginkgografix
"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.
