Well the first stream was pretty good, thanks for all who stopped by.
When I'm not running off a notebook I'll see what I can do about better quality.
Will be doing another Halloween special stream this coming weekend.
Nothing particularly in mind but will be doodling. :D

It seems like some, like of Hinata in your Features gallery behind Sakura's back, is a re-draw form a scene in the anime. Just do the same as I said before -- specify where it is original is from--The Naruto anime, and the episode number preferably, and if you do not remember the episode number, then just say it is a re-draw from the anime.

Hi there. Do not worry, I am not here to flame you, just to clarify.


I heard about the thievery and so I looked through your gallery.

I saw something I commonly see with younger or less experience artists on Da (I am surprised however to see this from such a long-time member).


I see a lot of re-draws of pictures from mangas and other peoples' fanarts.


You need to credit the image you are re-drawing (or heavy referencing) in respect to the original artist's hard work to make the original composition. In reality, re-draws are not allowed on DeviantART (see bellow), but the community is not so angered by this as long as the original sources are properly credited.


Keep in mind that when you upload something to this site, it automatically publishes your picture with a copyright to your username. So even if you are not claiming you made the original idea/picture in your own words, if you do not credit the original source/artist for the picture, and not just the series title, you are indirectly claiming it-- unintentional, or tactical, art thievery.


You can credit it with a direct link to the original image, or writing out your source such as the volume/chapter/page number the image is from in the manga. :meow: If you do not remember where it is from, just write in the description that it is a "re-draw" of an image that is not your own.


This is also needed for most "heavy referencing." By this, is mainly using the original image as a base to re-draw the same pose or another aspect exactly as it is shown, and just changing certain features (such as the eye style or the hair).


Mimicry art is a great learning tool, but breaks copyright laws and deviantARt's own rules (I'll provide references of this bellow). They are wonderful to use offline for practice, but shouldn't be uploaded, especially unaccredited, into an art website: DeviantART especially since DeviantART provides a copyright to every image you upload into your username.


With as much practice as you have had to learn how different artists use line and angles to make an image, you should be able to make your own by now. Try branching out further into developing your own independent skills. It might not be what you would like at first, but you'll never get any better without trying. :)

:bulletblack: FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

One of the examples of copyright infringement, as dictated in writing in DeviantART's own copyright policy… , includes: "Adapting someone else's creative work found in one medium to another medium, such as making a book into a movie or a photograph into a painting."

I don't think this is tracing...I can tell if just that you have learned more from heavy reference more than anything and people just don't look at it close enough thats all :) Maybe some time some more original pieces will come from you but for now, I still believe your drawing them yourself!
