Well, I never thought I'd have to do this, but I'll be deleting my deviantart account soon.
Well, I'm not comfortable with DeviantArt being perfectly content with taking my work, (as well as other artists), and being able to distribute and sell it to third parties, without me getting my royalties. I've seen my work being sold on sites like RedBubble without my permission, and have gone through and made them take it all down.
They say that they only use art for promotional purposes, but if that's true, then why do I see others' art in stores like HotTopic and RedBubble, etc, and not a single owner of those works have received rightful dues?
I know that it hinted at that in the agreement that every artist on that site signs before making their account, but after seeing it happen so much, I had enough. I'm not comfortable with DeviantArt making money off of my art, while I don't see a single royalty.
Rest assured, my followers and friends, I have a fb page for my personal and commissions page. I also have a Tumblr where I'll be posting my work and commissions from now on. Thank you to everyone who has been supportive of both myself, and my art. Feel free to befriend me and I'll see you later.
