Inappropiate comments, critiques and insults
DeviantART is a community of artists; as such, it offers not only the opportunity to showcase artwork but to interact with other artists, receive feedback, offer advice, find friendship and even get a job! If art is the heart of this site, the interaction of their members are the veins that make the whole thing function, without interaction there wouldn't be a community.
And just as blood flows through veins in a smooth way in order to keep everything clean and in order, the interaction within the community should flow the same way, in an atmosphere of tolerance and respect. Unfortunately, we all know that that's not always the case, and just like clots causes problems and interrupt the correct blood flow, harsh and disrespectful comments serve no good.
This article will present what is considered unacceptable commentary, the difference between insults and critiques, and how to respond to them.

Artists Shouldn't Undersell Themselves!
I recently joined a wonderful little community here on dA for artists who take commission work: :iconhiredeviantARTISTS: .   There are artists of all mediums and techniques there, so do check it out if there's anything you want to have done!
As I've looked through the profiles of the other community members (and in various other places where people list prices for their wares/talents), I've noticed something that makes me sad and honestly a little worried about the future of selling art: a lot of artists seriously undersell themselves.
It certainly is hard (especially in this economy) to set prices for your work that are affordable for customers, and not too high to turn them away.  I also understand wanting to start a little lower on your prices to get your name out there.  But starting your commission prices at $1?  Or maxing out at $5-10?  Too low, folks.  Way too low.
First off, on a $1 commission, you're literally

Happy Birthday to--Wait, I'm being SUED??
Also posted from our very own deviantartfilm :
:film: That's right boys and girls. "Happy Birthday" is a copyrighted song. AOL/Time-Warner owns it, bringing in about $2million in royalty payments every year, and they will continue to use and make some serious cash off this until the year 2030. Why do you think that annoying restaurant-esque 'happy-happy-birthday!' yada is more prevalent in films (and in actual restaurants) than the traditional melody we all sing at parties? Unless you have $10,000USD to fork over, you will not be using this song anytime soon.
:cake: "Happy Birthday" is something not many people are aware of being under copyright, but ignorance is not an excuse. I've been seeing a lot of music-related mistakes in the film submissions lately- copyrighted music as the 'scores' or 'soundtracks' for films people are submitting.
Look guys, something that you

Hi guys! So I just thought, screw it, You can go to past journals for all the pretty CSS and links to helpful things and whatnot, so here's an update:

Club is dead :skull: :XD: As I asked several times in journals the past few months, there have been ZERO takers or interest in taking over the club :XD: SO, yes, dead. :XD: I'm not archiving things anymore :XD:

Here is a thought though- if there are enough of you that still like the club, hate the account formatting and want to do a group thinger, go create a group, you can still use the template here and whatnot, and I'll announce where the big move is going to so you members which are still interested can take part :nod:

This is just frankly too much work for a college grad LOOKING for a job, and my own shop and groups I manage are keeping me waaaay too busy, even after I stepped down as a Film GM for deviantART :XD:

SOOOOO you can note me at my personal account for faster reply and whatnot if any of you have any ideas or would be interested in taking over the club or whatnot ;D

Much love! It has been a long 2year ride!

Looking to hire an artist for creation of a book cover. I'm looking for someone with a stark & colorful approach, more real, less anime. The art in question will be used to help promote & sell a book, which means it needs to be exciting. 

Likely to offer the right artist more work as time goes on, to effectively promote the said book.

I don't work for free, and I don't expect anyone to. Include your rates. I'm under the gun on this project with a crowd source deadline, so I expect clearly defined dates for finalized product. I know what I want, and can provide details. 

If you want to see the project, ask. Contact me with examples of work, ideas, and of course how much you're going to cost. :)

Looking for an artist to help finish off my RPGMaker game, the coding is 35% complete, the mapping is not close to done.

I would essentially need armors, hairs, weapons, full body views of the body. More will be explained on Discord when and if I bring you aboard :)

Payments will either be done ASAP or you can receive royalties on the game.

Keep in mind that if you do choose to work with me I WILL NOT ever rush you, trust me, I'm a Uni student and understand being crushed for time.

We will be in touch, contact me on DA first, if I find interest I'll chat with you on DiscordApp, please keep in mind you must be 18+, I'm not dealing with the legal things that follow with hiring underage people.

Looking for an artist to draw my daughter as Ariel the little mermaid. ... Must have work that I can see what you can do. I am wanting to give her this for Christmas 2016.

I am wanting it to be an under water picture, with the sea shell bra, and green tail. Only I want her face and eyes to be her, the rest to be the mermaid. Her name is Ariel and she is all about mermaids.

She is 13, so I want it "teenage", but not "sexy". (if that makes any since ... I need her Dad's approval ;)

Contact me if you are up for the challenge! ;)

I will pay through PayPal :)
