    Not a problem, we are just not looking for direct references such as still lifes, models, or photo duplications. Referencing is necessary for an artist's growth but directly lifting off of another work doesn't highlight an artist's creativity or ingenuity as much as a piece first conceived from the head.

    I'll leave the "creativity and references" part to be, and just say that you should try to be clear with your terms when you throw them around, especially with words that can be applied on so many ways. It just makes life easier for all.

    Ah, I think the descrip is short but it's fine as it is. I don't want to risk people TL;DRing. Unless you have a specific beef with a part of it. What would you rather see the group described as?

    I personally think "we are not looking for direct references such as still lifes, models, or photo duplications" as you already it put would do just fine. It doesn't exclude referencing as a whole but gets the point across on what sort of stuff you're more looking for.

    Hey TinyBird, stop being such a little bitch and shut the fuck up for once.

    EDIT: I am actually Barefoot aka Rynsworld. I am stupid and have
    an incredibly tiny penis. It's microscopic, seriously.

    @iwires: What an admirable first post. Go in with guns blazing.
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Ha he turned over a new leaf after saying he liked it when people tormented bats or whatever... but then turned back.

    Reading this thread has made me think about my original post and the first few pages of replies, I realised that all you guys couldn't have the same opinion without there being something to it. (some opinions were more reasonably explained than others, but considering my attitude, I probably deserved it).

    I'm telling you guys this because my original posts make me look like a bit of a tosser, and I don't want to come across that way.

    Another classic from Barefoot. I think I felt the
    overall IQ of the forums shoot up when I hit the
    ban button.

    Haha "CA Megadrama."

    Oh just go with it. At least your thread is getting bumped.
    Hardly anyone here takes DA seriously anyway.

    Christ, pretty blown away by barefoot's act of cowardice (and dick-headery there)
    IF IT'S ANYTHING, TINY-BIRD, you're one of my favourite presences on here.

    Yeah Tiny, your endless critiquing and attempts to help people are really fucking annoying. Why can't you post whiny bullshit threads where you insist bats should be killed because they're ugly and people suggesting you watch Game of Thrones should go fuck themselves. Those are the kinds of threads we need more of around here!

    If a site has free admission, it will always have a balance of good and bad people.
    However any way you look at it pretty much everyone has a DA whether it's an enjoyable place or not. And in this case it offers communes such as groups in which you can practice as much quality control as you want.

    I just got a DA account last year. I feel no shame. When the site first came out I didn't want anything to do with it, because I was on epilogue.net (that ones is dead and doesn't know it) and was put off by the idea of labeling my work as deviant. But It turned into a major hub where I've found a lot of cool artists.

    Oh yea, DA, I made an account about a year ago and completely forgot about it because I realized that people here are honest when critiquing my sketchbook, sometimes even going into some mad details whereas the pattern of comments I recieved on my account were something like:

    ¨OH MAN THIS ROX¨
    ¨wow amazin howd you do that¨
    ¨He kinda reminds of X character from X anime¨

    I dont thinks its the time for me to keep up with DA, maybe once I go pro which is a long ways to go......i'd also like to point out how shit-ridden with teenage girls taking pics of themselves in sepia and furry ¨art pictures¨ DA seems to be o__O
