That's not even what he's saying. o-O He's saying the clenched fist is being used inappropriately, mostly because it's stolen and also because it's being misinterpreted.

kitten-Red Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
if thats what happened, then yes.

really they should look at every page worth, then pick a couple of faves from each page worth of entries, then compare these to each other to whittle it down to quarter, semi and then final. would be more fair on all of us as each piece would then be seen.

Can I ask what wasn't liked about my entry? I would like to know how it was passed over in favour of pieces that don't flow very well as far as composition is concerned.

Yeah, well it's based off of popularity really. If an image is liked by a lot of people, I suppose DA assumes those are the ones the members like the most and wan to win.

"Jesus, DA. It's really, really sad you don't take into consideration the opinions of your members, not even to come to a compromise. We were all concerned and infuriated by Shepard Fairey and his association with this, what you call the members', art community. But I guess it's all just a front, eh. This is your art community, and you'll do with it what you please no matter what it stirs up. .........."

i feel curious with the things that you said. From wat i got here, you dislike Shepard Fairey, then why did you join this competition?

I joined it to express my dislike of Shepard Fairey through "hypocrisy."

I used other's artwork. However, I gave them credit. Unlike what Fairey did

you dislike him right? then keep it for yourself, this competition, i believe is not the room for you to speak out while your work is not listed as one above. If you dislike shepard, then go on with it, don't mix your emo with your work as you totally missed out the brief.

and for the credit given that you mentioned, are you sure it's a proper way to credit one person's work? have you ever know the "Chicago referencing method" or "Harvard referencing method"? the kind of citation or referencing things in DA are only for DA, for the such thing as competition, as if you win and it will be printed out, you are still a thief, if the owner sue you as no one really know that you use someone else's picture and the owner of the work that u use has all the rights to sue u.

Firstly, there's so much wrong with what you said it's not even funny. How is what I'm saying emo in any way? I'm pissed off because the retarded admins are so biased they could care less about someone's reputation as long as they support what the admins like, and to hell with the members. I did not "miss out the brief," I'm very aware of the brief, which is why I did this. Don't use "you" and "u" in the same comment. And therein lies the hypocrisy that I intended (I received written permission from the original artists anyways, and have made copies). I could easily go back and add that in anyways.

Why should I welcome an art thief into an art community because he preaches "equality" or because it's a "competition?" It's disgusting when someone tries to justify the actions they've committed that are clearly wrong and against the law with a mask of nobility.

I don't even understand what you mean by this run on sentence;

"the kind of citation or referencing things in DA are only for DA, for the such thing as competition, as if you win and it will be printed out, you are still a thief, if the owner sue you as no one really know that you use someone else's picture and the owner of the work that u use has all the rights to sue u."

But from what I gather you're essentially saying "Okay, so what if you won the competition? You could get sued because it's theft."

Wrong. I'd have never won the competition because I broke a number of rules that disqualify me. Even though DA's admins have a bad habit of disregarding their own rules and picking winners that break rules over truly talented people who didn't, I would never have won simply because I disagreed with what they said and fought against a criminal that they regard as a hero.

Their only argument against me was "it's not theft, it's copyright infringement" (Which, instead of being a misdemeanor, is a federal offense so it's not even a defense), and that Fairey fueled Obama's campaign and is inspirational.

The competitions ideals were great, but Fairey is an insult to this community. None of his works should get the recognition his does, because they're all stolen.

Mind you, I liked your submission.

Congrats to those picked. To all the less popular DA Artist who have page views 50 to 30,000 which is a majority in this contest, I think it's great you were picked. It gives the underdog a chance to shine. To those who are professional, and a bit more popular with 50+ to 130+ thousand visits, I wish you also a great deal of praise for being picked from what is obviously a profiled event.

Good luck to everyone and may the BEST image be chosen.
