Update: It seems after some digging this may have been more knee-jerk reactions to scare tactics, in response to DA’s Terms of Service, that is.

DA Response: phoenixleo.deviantart.com/jour…

Official Post from the original artist: jjharrison.tumblr.com/post/854…

Article about Hot Topic T-Shirt Debacle: www.dailydot.com/parsec/devian…

So false alarm, things are not as dire as assumed, and I only upload resized and watermarked pieces here anyway. Still, as I told my watchers on Tumblr, if you like my pieces enough to save them locally then by all means go ahead in case I take them down in future. It’s not like I can’t really stop you, can I? :P

That's what I get for buying in to chain messages!!

_____________________________________________

Well this is horrible.

In case you haven't seen this yet, DeviantArt's malicious little fine print is allowing them to use your work - ANY of it - at the drop of a hat and for whatever they desire. This does not only apply for use around their site, but also to sell to third parties without your permission and without you seeing a cent:
</strike>

quartervirus.tumblr.com/post/1…

I’d heard rumours of this as far back as 2007 or 2008 and ignored them, then a few years ago I more friends dropped out of DA for the same reason, but I thought nothing of it. But this is getting ridiculous.

Just a heads-up for my watchers: I will be moving my art and deleting my DA.

It’s shit, and it’s unfortunate, as I met so many friends and fans through DA and received so much support through my darkest times. It was a huge part of my artistic development for the last decade and I doubt I would be where I am now if I didn’t have the resources and the community it presented.

But this is not how you treat a dedicated fanbase, this is not how you reward your community. And if this is what they think of artists, then they do not deserve our support.

So I will be packing up shop and moving elsewhere. Not sure where yet, perhaps I will finally get around to that ArtStation account, or set up an Instagram. My art will remain up for several days as I need to save and sort some old pieces, but in the meantime Patreon is already the best place to find me for art, followed by Tumblr for daily nonsense and drabbles. God only knows what else is hidden in their Terms of Service, but one can only hope nothing quite so heinous as the bullshit DA is pulling.

So ... so long, and farewell, it's been a wild ride. I will miss all the memories of this place, but this is not the treatment we deserve.
