Am i the only one who reacts to the fact that people upload other peoples photos and just ad some text? I mean, i thought this was for people sharing their art, not for icanhascheezeburger pics..

pilwe.deviantart.com/art/Bulls…
an example of an extremely popular upload...

i report all these i find, and i think other people should to.
on that shot he writes he has permission, though it is no url or information at all. doubt people has it on the usually motivational/fail shots that are here.
in general, i dislike shots like this on deviantart, they fall in the random boob and look-at-me-and-my-webcam category.

i agree 110 percent!! I believe that if you have deviant art, it should be your own;; not something that you've traced or something like that example that you have shown....... i think that people should have a deviant art account for ONE reason and ONE reason ONLY!!! to share YOUR OWN ART!!!!!!!!!:dummy:

I report these kinds of things too. It's frustrating, and I know how it feels like since someone uploaded my photo and claimed it as his own. And it sucked more 'cause he was a good friend and he just used my photo to get noticed and be "cool". They take credit for something that someone else had worked really hard for and put so much of themselves into it. It's such a sick thing.

Another thing that sucks is the spread of images like these. I mean, that looks like it belongs in a blog not an art community.

I definitely agree with you, there is no place for stuff like this in an art community, and it's a shame there are people that trace and use pictures\art without any written permission of the artist.

this is probably not related, but are you aware that DA is fully allowed to sell our art to people? As soon as it is uploaded, we're giving away our rights to devart

I dont upload my best stuff cos I'm nervous about it being pinched before I decide what to do with it myself. It's so easy to grab stuff. Even low res people can pinch and use it the net. Yeah but that e.g. is a bit lame.

I've been doing this kind of reporting for 4 years now here on dA. I recently reported this guy [link]

I get tired of seeing people posting photos of celebrities and any other art/images not belonging to them, as I'm sure they do not have permission to do so. It's become a serious issue here and I'm getting tired of seeing it. :| People need to get their own cameras, take their own photos or in the case of the guy I gave a link to, he needs to digitally paint or draw the images of celebrities and then make them wearing see through clothing.

Though I must say that those images didn't come to my screen now for a long time.. maybe just because I don't have (or spend) that much time on dA browsing on the front pages..

I have plenty to keep up with just my message center xD

"they fall in the random boob and look-at-me-and-my-webcam category"

Agreed. I don't really see how they could be considered art. Yeah, some are funny, but they'd probably be more appropriate if they stayed on cheezburger or fail.

You have a point here... dA is supposed to be a place where you can show and share what you do, what you create and everything related to it. I'd report it if I found a violation.

btw, does dA give guidelines as to what you need to post in comments in terms of permission and other people's work or you only need to show permission if they ask? I recall having read something about it in the rules section, but can't find it again now. :stupidme:

you'll get crap like that and I think a friendly note to them might work first. He is you fairly average inoffensive deviantant and probably a good bloke. As to things getting better on DA and getting worse, theres a lot of both. with millions of apples you have to get a few runts and worms but some of those apples are ripening and getting a real shine!

I'm not sure, I think it depends on where you're looking. The front page is still a little horrifying sometimes. :O However, the people I was watching who were just "pretty good" before have become "pretty goddamn amazing" as they've worked over the years since I joined, so in terms of people I watch I have noticed a positive quality change.

Do you believe it to be something which grows with time, the quality of art? There will forever be new artists enterting the fields, and old ones leaving, but if we study the 'greatest' in terms of what we are trying to achieve, then perhaps it is true that the overall quality of art can continue to grow with time. Growing can simply be exploring new areas, but it can also be the introduction of techniques and technology to bring about new means of acquiring better quality.

It is amazing.
