Arrow Divider Blue Tint by TheStockWarehouse

I got a heads up from a loyal member of the groups, KV-Arts ~ her careful eye has found a site on Etsy that has "art" items for sale, some art she has recognized as being posted on DA. Please take a look at the site to see if your Disney art may be offered for "sale" by an off-site seller!

This is the note I received:

KV-Arts said the following:

I just came across an Etsy shop that is selling print pendants made from Disney fan art.… I recognize some of them from dA (Twisted Princesses series).
Since you have so many Disney groups I thought maybe you could mention it so that people can search the shop, and Etsy, for stolen work. Etsy is pretty good with removing copyrighted images.

Take a look and see if you recognize any of the art. If you see art from someone you watch please let them know!

Thank you handwhriting ~  F R E E S T U F F by AStoKo

Club FAQs

Respect the Admins by TheGalleryOfEve

This FAQ can be found in Czech, Dutch, Italian, and Russian here:…
In French, German, Hungarian, Portuguese and Romanian here:…

An abridged FAQ in Greek, Hebrew, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish, and Swedish can be found here:…

How to Join
If you would like to be a member of the club, click the "Join our Group" link at the top of the page.
:bulletblack: We will deny membership to people whose galleries are full of art theft. If you use celebrity photos, coloring book pages, movie screenshots or other art that is not yours, we will not only deny your membership, we will report every instance of copyright infringement in your gallery.
:bulletblack: We do not want tracers in our group. We reserve the right to overlay vector or vexel art with its reference; if we find that these types of deviations are made exclusively by tracing, we will deny membership.

How to Submit to the Gallery
You must be a Member to submit to the Gallery. Click the "Contribute Art" at the top of the page or the "Contribute to the Gallery" on our Gallery page. On the pop-up picker, choose the thumb you'd like to submit and click Ok. Your suggestion will be approved as long as it meets the following requirements:

:bulletblue: One submission per member per 7 day period.
:bulletblue: The deviation must include a canon Disney character, place, or thing. For a list of what is considered Disney for the Gallery, please see below.
:bulletblue: The deviation must not have the mature content tag, contain nudity, or excessive violence/gore. Mild violence and innuendo will be approved on a case by case basis.
:bulletblue: Since deviations created from various "Doll Maker" Programs are supposed to go into the deviants' scraps, they are not viable as submissions to the group's gallery. Please see FAQ #502: Can I submit things which I made using different "games" like a doll maker or with other character generators? for additional information.
:bulletblue: The deviation must not contain official Disney art or photographs. Anything made with screenshots, celebrity photos, coloring book pages, company logos, or any other type of art theft will not only be rejected, but will be reported to dA. Using official Disney art in a traditional piece (such as collage) is also not acceptable for the Group. We will hold our traditional artists to the same standards as our digital artists. Collages of one's own photos or drawings is perfectly acceptable.
:bulletblue: The deviation must be made by the submitter; do not try to submit other people's art to the Gallery.

How to Submit a Contest, Project, or Prompt Entry to the Gallery:
1. Click on the "Send a Note" link on our Profile or Blog tab.
2. In the text field, tell us what contest/project/prompt your deviation is for, and make sure to leave the thumb or link (thumbs are preferable).
3. We will send you a Gallery invite for that deviation. It will come into your message center at the bottom of the page under "Correspondence". Once you approve the invite, your entry will post to the Gallery.
:bulletwhite: Entries do not count towards the one deviation per member per week rule. :)
:bulletwhite: Only entries for currently open projects are eligible for this exemption.

Only Group Admins can add artwork to our favorites.

On Blogs:
Members blogs must be Group related. Acceptable topics are Reviews for new Disney movies and devMeet announcements. Personal contest announcements, asking for commissions, or other such information are not acceptable for the Group. Blogs must be in English and well written. We reserve the right to edit a blog for grammatical content or to post spoiler tags. All blogs will be reviewed and voted on by our admins.
:bulletpurple: If you have a contest you would like to promote, send the Group a note and we may post it to our Twitter if it meets group standards. Once posted it will show up in the left sidebar of our profile tab. Contests must be Disney related and have prizes.
:bulletpurple: For devMeet announcements please include the place, date, and time of the meet. Meets should be Disney related, such as meeting at one of the theme parks or as a cosplay Group at a convention.

What does "Disney" entail for this Group?

The Big Question: Digital Darkroom or Photomanip?Darkroom Week
One of the most common questions I get about the darkroom gallery is "Is this piece darkroom or a photomanipulation?" And it's a good question - the line gets a bit blurry in places, and sometimes how we define it for ease of submitting and browsing isn't completely in line with what most people would assume. Today in a very special episode of Project Educate we've cancelled our morning appointments to bring a collaborative article wherein myself and Aeirmid discussed (in realtime, albeit earlier so we could make it pretty) the lines between photography and manipulation and what pieces belong where.
Except it totally is.
Now grab some popcorn and buckle in for:
THE GREAT DEBATE: What is Digital Darkroom, and Why Isn't It a Photomanipulation

Photomanipulation involves the combination of ELEMENTS of two different photographic images
Copyright Resources CompilationFan Art
When we talk about Fan Art, the question of copyright tends to come up.  There have been a lot of resources posted on the subject on DA over the years and sometimes they can be tricky to find.  So this is a comprehensive compilation on the topic posted by staff, who have had legal consultation.  I have left out older articles that are similar to the ones I included as the more recent ones would have the most accurate information.
DA's Copyright Policy

While I have shared official articles and FAQs here, I know there are a lot of unofficial articles on the topic.
