I found out just tonight that deviantART can sell your artwork, any deviation, to a third party. Royalty-free. Meaning, they can hand over your work to someone else, without your permission, get paid for it, and you don't get a single cent or even credit for that matter. DeviantART artist Rismo in particular has suffered from this; one of his works even being sold to Hot Topic and put on a tee shirt without his knowledge.

Now, granted, it's all legal. No one can say that dA stole it. All of us agreed to this sort of thing by signing up, whether we knew it or not, but that doesn't make it any less unsettling.

I don't think that my art is nearly good enough to be taken or sold by dA, BUT regardless, I don't think that I'll be posting any more new artwork here. I might make a tumblr account especially for my art (though, honestly, that's no safer, I suppose) so if you'd like my url, then please send me a note because I plan on making that soon.

Sorry, guys! D:

Oh, no it wasn't my meme. I honestly can't remember where it even came from, it's been so long ago... But I'm fairly certain you don't have to give credit for memes?

Anyway, hope you enjoyed it!
