See, once in a while somebody takes my pictures and displays them as their own. I don’t bother much anymore.
But how can it be that stolen works like this one of mine stay on Deviantart for weeks (or forever?) despite several reports, and dozens of erotic pictures of mine get deleted somtimes just minutes after they were uploaded, despite I marked them as explicit? Example: This picture above was taken down because it “contains a adult orientated toy”. Why does deviantart have the “mature content: strict sexual themes” anyway when I can’t even upload a toy? Since today about 20 pictures of mine got deleted, and none of them was explicit. Examples: 1 (I reuploaded this, then it worked) | 2| 3 | 4 (with a link to the full picture in the description)
I get that DA has it’s rules (which I don’t quite understand) and I bowed to them by not uploading much anymore, but it hurts to see that I’m considered as a bigger threat than a thief. I feel like somebody hates me over there.

It says right in the rules that you can’t post images w/ sex toys, penetration, sex-related body fluids, or erections, so no matter what warning you give it, it’s gonna get taken down. If it helps, dA hasnt taken down images containing these criteria that I have reported in almost 4 months.
Being on that fucking site for like.. 6-7 years, I can honestly say that DA does not give any shit about it’s users. None. But this sob story is as old as time.
Reporting is all based on chance, and you have no say in the matter. Sometimes you’ll find your pics deleted with a pre-recorded message on why. Other times you’ll find lolis and stolen pics and reporting them does nothing.
I just found out about the toy thing and I swear that dumb rule is a new one I’ve never heard about till a friend pointed it out, saving my own ass.
Instead of having an real adult category and a proper filter, DA is based entirely around self censorship and guesswork. Hey, didja know that even tho you can draw a cartoon character fully aged & old as the stars, if his/her original profile says he/she is under-aged, it’s considered unfit for DA? Now you fucking know! Fuck you DA. I shouldn’t have to do your dirty homework. Your mature tag is a joke.
So here you are at the mercy of kids white knighting your wares while tracers and nude photographers with shoddy filters run free in the wild. You consider yourself a respectable citizen, and you obviously should be part of the adult market. At first glance DA looks like a perfect opportunity. Hell, you see Boob Inflationists and other fetish-goers all the fucking time there. But something seems fishy. There’s tits as big as planets, but no sex. There’s dickgirls, but they’re all flaccid. Everything is a cock tease. They’ve adapted and so do all of us.
The best thing to do is learn from it. Be that fucking tease. Keep all your good stuff off of that damned site. Censor yourself before you even post. Make a promise to all the mature viewers that there’s more to this than they see. Be the peddler in the alley. You can be still be mad at DA and not give them any revenue by directing viewers off their site to a link hub, and then your porn.
Hope that helps. I’ve seen it all. You are no less of an artist.Posted on March 1, 2013 at 5:12 AM
*devil appears on your shoulder* hey man….why even bother with lineart….just clean up the sketch….no one has to know…..
My biggest pet peeve is when their sketches look better than anything I’ve ever done till the day of Lavos.
Like the gentle kisses of angels have embraced their gifted palms and hushed sweet whispers into their tablets, the siren song of graphite scribed onto their screens putting shame to all the heathen that dare call themselves ‘artists’. We are but neanderthals playing with our decrepit feces, digging into the earth, kissing the monolithic onyx of their boots, looking up into the burning sun of their hard rimmed glasses. Oh how pitiful our tears must look from our apish faces as we struggle to hold the pens we carved from our brethrens’ decaying bones! How foolish our guttural howls from jagged tongues we must sound when we beg for heaven’s secrets! We are all damned flesh of this rotting earth, bereft of any artistic merit!
Fuck My Life.

A drawing of Cheezy Weapon’z stingray girl Rachel!
This is actually one of the requests, but it’s not all that porny, so maybe I’ll only count it as 1/2 of one. Still 7 and 1/2 to go.
Cheezy’s characters are interesting enough that it’s fun to draw them just standing around and stuff.
