Sorry, but I'm going to rant for a moment...

This morning I went on dA, and saw I had one note unread. Checked it, and saw this:

The work(s) listed below have been removed by staff due to a violation of deviantART policy or because its theme or content was judged unacceptable. Your deviantART submissions must obey certain guidelines and restrictions.

If you are uncertain why the submission was removed or if you have any questions or believe this removal to be an error please contact the deviantART Help Desk.

The administrator who deleted your deviation added the following:
A member of staff has reviewed a report concerning this deviation and has determined that the character(s) depicted in a nude, erotic or sexually compromising situation are established as being under the age of 18 in their original context.

Official policy does not allow such depictions, so this deviation has been removed and should not be resubmitted.

FAQ #248: Are there restrictions on art using children or teenagers (fictional or otherwise)?

(By the way, I do draw ecchi, and also things that I do not upload here in the first place. Sorry :P)

The drawing they removed was a picture of Hatsune Miku after falling over, with her panties in full view. I assume because someone felt the need to report it...

This is now the SECOND time I've had one of my drawings removed; the other drawing was a picture of Azusa (a cropped version of which is on my profile page).

I'm sorry, but, this really is pathetic... I can kinda understand the first instance (because, I'll be honest, she was nude behind a guitar), but this time it's just ridiculous. The guidelines on this site are completely absurd for "underaged characters"; it's purely a fictional context. But, for them to remove something as simple as a pantyshot, really is questionable.

I've actually seen two great artists get suspended now: Dfer32 and Eudetenis (in fact, looking at Eudetenis' profile it appears to be deactivated now, which is really sad).

deviantART are going to annoy and drive away more and more users (some of them very talented artists), with their policies and philosophy. They are now likely to move to sites like Pixiv, where you do not find such levels of irrationality (and, in my opinion, Pixiv is just a far better site in almost every way, mainly because you actually have FREEDOM to upload art).


Therefore, I can see myself doing the same thing in the future. I don't know when, but it's likely I'll stop using dA altogether and fully use Pixiv. It's a shame, because I really do see such beautiful art on this site.


If you read this, thank you. And I'm sorry for the rant, I just had to get it out here.

Random
Here's a random, basic drawing :P

I know I haven't been uploading much here, I'm sorry. There's just been a few issues plus being busy in general.

So, here's something to prove I'm not dead :iconyuisheepishplz:

Again I know, white background... But, in some ways I like white background for single characters like this sometimes.

Nekomimi by Piehamster
Nekomimi
Meh, this turned out OK, I guess...

I didn't have that much motivation to finish it, if I'm honest. I think I got bored of it halfway through drawing, haha... :iconyuisheepishplz:

So, yeah :P  Sorry for the simple background this time, too.

A beginning artist, who specializes mainly in drawing anime/manga styled images. In the past I used The GIMP to draw these, but now I'm starting to use Paint Tool SAI. I use a Wacom Volito 2 tablet, which gets the job done nicely and is a LOT better than using a mouse... I have been drawing for a few months, but recently I am starting to put more effort into drawing and starting new images more frequently.

Of course, my drawing isn't perfect, but nobody is a professional from the very beginning. I think that already I have come a long way since my first image (not uploaded here), which I think looks awful! This is why I absolutely love the saying "Practice makes perfect", because I believe it to be so true. I will keep practicing and drawing, and thinking of ways to improve my work. I won't give up, or let bad experiences stop me.

Maybe I will upload things other than manga/anime, such as photos from my camera. However, I doubt it unless I change my mind; I prefer to stick to one category. But who knows...
