It's MY gallery stamp by dazza1008 It's MY gallery stamp by dazza1008
With no apologies.

This isn't to say that I'm not interested in others' opinions or critique (with the pics that I put time into, at least), but I've seen far too many people cower in fear, wondering how their watchers will react if they posted something controversial or worry about losing a few.

It's far better to have watchers who are made up of people who like you for what you do, than watchers who are made up of people with whom you have to suppress yourself in order to please. What a chore it would be to have to grind out art, feeling like that.

Shouldn't your gallery be an extension of yourself? Isn't art meant to be an expression of yourself?

NOTE: Thanks to some comments below, I just wanted to clarify that I didn't mean stolen art! :lol: (or art that breaks the rules of dA)


EDIT: it's 2 frames, both 0.5 second delay. If the rhythm in which it flashes doesn't seem even, it's a problem with your browser. Damn you, Firefox. You're just lucky I hate Microsoft more.

EDIT2: Plz accounts :iconmygallery1plz::iconmygallery2plz: :iconmygallery1plz::iconmygallery2plz:

More 'clean up dA'-themed stamps~

OMG THANK YOU!! sometimes I post art that LOOKS pedophilic, but it's NOT! i'm always afraid my watchers will think it's pedophilic and call me weird... Now I can let them know that I post what I WANT! and if they think it's pedophilic, they're wrong :)
(Because pedo's are disgusting and I HATE pedophilic art)

Erm, I'd suggest putting the age of the characters in the description of each art piece. And if you're doing fanart, note that dA only looks at the canon age. So if you draw an older version, it's still against the rules. (should be somewhere in the FAQ)
SkinnyGreenKiller Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2016  New Deviant Student Digital Artist
I have the ages of the characters in there profiles, the pairing happens in the past, before the actual story began,
it's not even really a pairing though, just one character "really" liking the other. I don't really consider it cannon, more fanmade TBH

Cool :) I was only offering suggestions to minimise misunderstandings, that's all

I'm okay with mature art as long as the artist is responsible enough to put the Mature Tag on it.

The only thing I'm worried about is that the art in my gallery is quite weird; weird to the point in which I don't think I could describe it as "expressing" myself. Part of me doesn't even want to call it "art," but yet I still draw it for some reason. I agree that an artist should use their gallery for their own purposes, but what if most people seem to dislike it? Maybe I'm just too easy to discourage XD
dazza1008 Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2016
Well, if you draw it for some reason, even if you don't understand why - it still appears to be coming from you.

Can't please everyone. :shrug:

For a while, I've been shy about posting controversial looking artwork (eg. a fictional or real-life person given a violent end). I didn't want to make myself look like some biased, close-minded, bigoted troll. If I'm ever brave enough to carry the tamest one out, I'll at least warn, "this ISN'T for those that LIKE this character."

Thank you so much for making this stamp. It's your profile. Draw what you want. It's no one else's business. They don't like it? They could just ignore it instead. They can't dictate what you can and cannot draw UNLESS it breaks the rules.

FuwaKiwi Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agreed! I really like this stamp. Sometimes when I'm drawing for a group I just make it sketchy (as placeholder because I have a hard working schedule). I'm currently working on a comic for it which it's just a sketch as well, but it counts.
Also I love to draw Pokemon, and sometimes Animal Crossing stuffs....
People unwatching me sometimes when I do and upload sketches aka placeholders for the group, or when I'm drawing more Pokemon then Animal Crossing stuffs (or stuffs for the group).
And I felt a  bit overwhelmed for several days and I was thinking about to create a new account. But that's my account, that's my gallery, and I can draw what I want.

Too bad no one actually ever uses this stamp as it's described in the description. :lol: Every time I see someone with this stamp on their page, they're always a 14-17 year old brat who can't stand ANYONE saying that their art is anything but perfect. "IT'S MY GALLERY!!!!!! IF YOU DUN LIEK IT DUN LOOK!!!!11"

I like the message of this stamp (I used wonder about that too, and still have a quadrillion different accounts for different things as to not unsettle the watchers), but the stigma with it is unfortunate.
dazza1008 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014
lolz :XD:

:whisper: I think they are supporting the message, at least unknowingly. At least they're providing a link to the deviation. xD
