It's been years since I wrote a journal here on deviant art. But this time I think I am entitled to it because a  moment ago, I had received about 13 notes from deviant art staff regarding my fan arts of a fitness individual I did are not allowed due to copy right infringement. I don't blame deviant art coz they have a business to run and have to make certain situations like this avoidable so that their site is running. What annoys me so much right now is that ' fan arts' how is fan arts not allowed, I'm NOT selling my shit fan arts coz I know its wrong to do, so why not target those who steal art and sell art, not users who do fan arts for fun. What exactly is wrong with doing fan arts of something we choose to like? The reason I brought this up now is because I am tired of getting threats about fan arts not being approved or allowed, and on top of that in this case. Deviant art had to delete the ones I did because a photographer was, or should i say unhappy with it its use. Mate its a fan art, get over it, if anything you take joy that there are people out there who enjoy your work that they go and do their art based on it crediting you and the model, I know with most of my fan arts, most times - I can't credit the photographer because i don't know who to credit it since the image i worked on, there are other funny logos slapped on it, so why not hit them to with the complaint? For the past hour, raving and ranting via my facebook about this, this thought also came across.. why not ban comic con events, cos the individuals who dress up as their favorite icon or hero, the creator, photographer, model or the person who wipes their ass with it is unhappy with it being used from us as costumes or fan arts. Why not take the fun out of it, take the fun out of art and creating art whether it be fan art or art.. 

This has happened to me numerous times and most times I don't usually get a say on it, because I try not to allow it to annoy me.. but for fuck says mate.. it's a fan art of your work. If I was the photographer and an individual took the time to do something off my work, and he or she credited me. I'd fucking show the world that I have a fan, not file dmca reports to make the artist feel shallow about it. What's also upsetting is the thought of this, I'm stretching it now, but its a possibility the photographer must of contacted the model to find out whether she approved the fan art or not, not that fan arts need permission if you are doing nothing wrong with it, the model could have easily told the photographer to chill out and take joy that someone did a fan art of our work. What's the big deal? But if she didn't, then I have completely lost respect for her and the photographer for being so up tight about this. There are hundreds maybe millions of users via this site who do fan arts of marvel, you see Marvel file dmca reports to them? (depending if they stole art and sold it without the proper rights and process, then yeah hang em.)
But before you comment and say most individuals hate us for doing fan arts of their materials or based off their materials, fair enough, there's this thing most normal righteous people do, email kindly about it for it to be taken off. Rather than hit below the belt. I've made errors in the past, but as soon as i get an update from other users about the source of material (depending if they know), I always update the description box with the updated info and credits to the source, then I email them about it to see if its cool. And they are cool and thankful for the fan arts I do and consideration of emailing them the update.  Sometimes they ask me to take it down, I take down.  No complaints or head ache. 
But this, warnings and threats of deleting accounts based on fan arts, knowing that we have been members here for years doing the same routines in fan arts for recreational fun creation outlets and credited the reference material, yet the system here warns you of three strikes and you're out.. REALLY?? 

Right now, i am tired, extremely  pissed off, and fed up of all the silly ass restrictions regarding art or fan art, these codes or numbers written in books to protect copy rights and  holders, are confusing and most of it isn't fair at all. Why not hit people that actually steal peoples art rather than hit us who enjoy doing fan arts as a recreational hobby.  I do my best to credit everyone, and if I can't - I leave a note on the description box asking for info so I can update it later.. and others do that too. 

If anything the photographer could have of easily emailed me, rather than threaten me dmca and account lost via deviant art. That to me is below the belt considering how long of a member I have been with Deivant Art. And to top that, most users here are fan art based who do fan arts!!!! So it's a mix of artists and fan artists.  So all this nonsense is really invalid. And there will always be haters out there fucking with us.. 

Sorry for the raged rant and on a lighter note of things.. happy new year 2014 for all. I guess on the brighter side of things I still do have an account here which matters, but man.. its just fan arts..  why the hate??

Hi Cartcurt, sorry i haven't replied back to your note, i don't think I have reached that far on to my notes page. At the moment, i can't do any collaborations due to the current work load i have for myself which I have to attend to before I work on anything else new. I've been really busy with the arts and also coming up with designs for my t shirt collection, so its not possible to accept any work unless it is commission based. Sorry to have replied back to your note / comment this late.
