I wish there would be something like a faq which has to be read by new deviants which describes dA for them in easy words, understandable for everyone and even in a few different languages like spanish, portugese, french and german beside english. Browsing new tekken or soulcalibur deviations is a pain..you see more screenshots and easily made wallpapers using the official renders than own made art. And the worst is that dA is not even removing those when people report them.

Yeah, you're right.
On the removing, I guess it's easier to buy more servers than people to review submissions :P

I agree with you 110%, I have the hardest time trying to find fanart, not only videogames but all fanart keywords are mesed up with so many "renders" and crappy wallpapers and just all sorts of stolen images; it really has gotten completely out of hand.

As a side note, there's one thing that actually bothers me to no end, because I joined a couple of character specific Tekken groups and a lot of them accept all this so called artworks with official images, etc, (some even have gallery folders for them :O) it's utterly annoying, I'm joining a group to try to find good fanart not official images, I can google for those. :shakefist:

Sorry for the rant. :lol:

I think the problem is that possibly these people think that DA is just like Tumblr, this person doesn't seem like a thief in that sense, they probably just don't realise that DA is (hopefully still) about making your own art

The thing is if you go and type "cammy white" into google image search this artwork is one of the first Cammy pics that comes up, alongside several official artworks. And to be perfectly honest the piece looks easily like it could be an official image. That is why I think you find several different people on DA have used it as part of their own without crediting the original artist.

A lot of people on DA simply do pictures using official artworks of characters and give them a snazzy background. Because the images are official they don't think they need to give credit to another artist. Although they are still using copyrighted material.

However in this case it wasn't an official work, it belongs to someone else on DA.
