Stock and Resources: Policy ClarificationThe Stock and Resources community is an integral part of deviantART, both for having an active community of its own as well as providing high quality stock to all deviants. As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.In this article our aim is to reinforce our policies regarding stock and stock use and clear up some misconceptions.Stock and Resource submissions to deviantART:What are Invalid Stock and Resources?In short, invalid stock or resources are anything which you do not have full permission to upload. This incl
CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it. For those of you eager to look at some boobs and hot male torsos, I'm afraid I won't be including any here .How the mature content filter worksAll members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

London HQ Devmeet: The taleWhat do you get when you have 500 stress balls, the unpredictability of the Great British weather and a large park in the middle of London? A HQ devmeet of course! In brief 500 emoticon stress balls, 10 plushies and 500 sharpie pens is a lot of stuff to carry to London from Derby, but is worth it! Being late for breakfast means you can politely steal Heidi’s toast to have with your cup of tea. If you arrive 10 mins late to a very large devmeet, expect a huge crowd of people already there. Some people do dress up in full cosplay. It is fascinating. I counted 3 Dinosuar type things, a fox person, lots of hats and “ears”, at leat 2 pikachus, a Mexican wrestler, and some very short skirts! Giving out free balls/stickers/lanyards/pens etc to lots of people makes you feel a little like a seller at a sports event! Or a primary school teacher!:bu
An Interview With Pixel-Spotlight An Interview With Pixel-Spotlight 1) If you could bring one deceased legendary artist back to the current time, who would it be and why them?This is tricky. There's so many people I would love to meet and just talkto, artists going right back to Exekias and Phidias, it would be soincredible to speak to them and gain just a little of their knowledgeabout their art and their life times.There's the cliche artists such as Michelangelo (I turn into a complete raving fan girl over hisdrawings and sculptures, but I'm not so mad about his paintings) and Janvan Eyck.More modern artists, oddly enough, I wouldn't pick aphotographer. I'd probably say the recently decided Lucian Freud. He wasone of my close friends' grandfather and whenever I saw him is was atrue inspiration to talk to.TL;DR answer to this is idk but I'm a Classical geek so probably an ancient Greek artist.
