WHAT'S COPYRIGHT, HOW TO GIVE CREDIT & ART THEFT
Copyright? Stock? Art Theft? Don't Panic.There are amazing articles on this subject. I wanted to gather links to some of them, so maybe they can reach more people. Because this subject really does need to be known by more people! Too many deviations violating copyright laws are floating around. It is just not OK. deviantART is a site about art. It is for artists, professional or not, to showcase their work, to exchange thoughts, ideas, critiques. It is for art appreciators to show some love to art. It definitely is not a place to submit images without even caring if you have any right to do that. Many of these people do not have an idea of what they are doing is art theft. Some of them are doing it intentionally. I want to cover copyright issues, stock images, how to use them, and what to do when you find stolen art. Nothing new. Just a reminder.
Providing Stock+Resources - A Beginners Guide Pt01The following five part guide is a collection of tips and tricks for stockers and those who would like to become stockers but don't know where to start - based on my personal experence. While reading, keep in mind that most of what is outlined below are guidelines and not a set of rules you never ever cross - there are exception to everything but the very first rule (I would say copyright is not debatable, after all, you expect others to respect yours, too). Also, this has gotten very long and still, I feel I forgot stuff... So if you have any additions you'd like to see in here, feel free to comment!

FAQ - my answers to your questions!Hi everyone!
Hi deviants! I'm mecurycode and I provide you with high resolution resources, mainly textures. |
Over the past years, I've developed a great passion for making textures. They can be so versatile and not only represent a mixture of art and resource, they too hold the potential of adding to marvellous works of other artists.
If you'd ask me what fascinates me the most in the process of making them, I'd say it's spotting the beauty in decay. Sometimes the destruction of something brings out a whole different kind of beauty. Rust, for example, can be so bright, colorful and versatile that I can't seem to ever capture enough of it.
