PostingI never really post on deviantart any more. My photography is quite sparse now so it seems easier to post in a much more laid back way.If you are interested in my 'scrapbook' as I like to call it then you can see it here :http://victoriasimsphotography.tumblr.com/
Daily DeviationWow, I cannot begin to tell everyone how amazing it feels to get a DD after being on deviantart for so long!I know I am not as prevalent in the community, nor submitting as much as I used to. I feel life took me away from photography for so long. And now, as I have done for a while I long to get back to creating and sharing art again.Thanks to Kaz-D and everyone for your continued support.

Theft... Opinions PleaseI was notified today about something on an art/craft selling site etsy.com. Someone has upload a painting made from my work and is now selling a mass of prints of it in different sizes and they are also selling it as a necklace. Now, the thing is it's a reproduction of my work however it is exactly the same but coloured with one petal falling off...It's more or less an exact copy and I dont consider that to be enough of a variation to be considerd 'inspired by' and a variation of.Now alot of people have drawn this photo and I have no problem with this they ask for permission and give credit on the finished piece, but I really dont think its fair to be making money from a copy of my piece with no permission or anything and I never allow copies of my work to be used commercially.Now, how do I go about resolving this? I'm going to email the person in question. But just in case I get nowhere with that does anyone have any experiance with anything like this?Wht do you thi
DDWow, I can't believe it. I looked at my page before logging in and thought, hm...more comments than usual must be my lucky day..and it is!I've been completely dormant on here recently, and been feeling pretty down about my photos and everything so this is such a shock.I think this is the kick up the butt I need to motivate myself more and not leave months between submitting.

Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
