A simple way to search for creative commons art in DA, is to use Google advance search.

Put it in you search:
"This work is licensed under a Creative Commons"

Click the word "Images" in the left of the google page. It will show images instead of pages.

Voila. You'll see all images under CC in DA.
If you want to be more specific in your search, you can add words in the search above.

It doesn't compares with an in-site feature, but at least it is a workaround...

I have a question. I hope it's ok to ask it here.

If I were to draw fanart of a character that is copyrighted by another company, would I be able to use a creative commons licence? And if so, what kind of licences are available? Say, would I be able to allow commercial use of my work even though the character is copyrighted by the company? Would I need permission from the company to use a cc licence?

I can explain the specifics if need be.

I am not a lawyer but. as far as I know, you own your portion of the work and they continue to own what ever other claims exist. So the work can still be infringing and you can still restrict it's copying.

It's an unfortunate fact that most people are infringing copyright pretty much all the time.

Hello! I am doing a project rendering unicode characters of ancient egypt and others. When I finish, the project will have maybe more than 5000 deviations. The license will be CC-BY. Where I should put my work in this group?



Btw, I am Jakeukalane

The best option it to package the objects into a single zip file with a solid preview image to attract attention. The group would be flooded with thousands of entries from a single project, so it's best to keep it to a single entry.

thanks for the reply, although I think they are separated resources. Maybe I will submit one each week.

Dear Creative-Commons team and people,

I come to you with a request. It has been some time since the new tagging system was implemented. I was able to use it, but I wonder if I can improve my tagging skills, especially concerning the nature of the license of my work.

This is where I ask for your help. If someone could write a blog entry or a text-based deviation about tags concerning this kind of thing, I would be very grateful.
I'm absolutely willing to help, but I'm afraid that I lack the knowledge to do it alone.

Here are a few thoughts:
  • Maybe creating a small dictionary of existing tags could help. A quick reference like that would be marvellous. Maybe something like this - using the tags that I have found about so far:
    • #cc - Creative Commons; use with care, this is also used for lots of other things
    • #ccby - CC-BY; Creative Commons Attribution (share, remix, use - conditions: attribution)
    • #ccbync - CC-BY-NC; Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial (share, remix, use - conditions: attribution, non-commercial use)
    • #ccbyncnd - CC-BY-NC-ND; Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivatives (share, remix, use - conditions: attribution, non-commercial use, no derivatives)
    • ...and all of the other licenses, such as #ccbyncsa #ccbync #ccbynd #cc0 #cc0public #publicdomain #creativecommonszero etc.
    • #creativecommon - Creative Commons; use with care, this is a misspelling of #creativecommons
    • #creativecommons - Creative Commons
    • #creativecommonslicense - Creative Commons
    • #free - for deviations that can be used freely in any form, also see #freeart
    • #freeart - for deviations that can be used freely in any form, also see #free
    • #gratis - for deviations that can be used freely in any form; use with care, this is an uncommonly used tag since it is more commonly used for Spanish and German things
  • With a maximum of 64 (it was 64, right?) tags, this might not be an issue, but since I like to be lazy efficient when it comes to writing, what is the priority? Which ones are more commonly used than others (#cc0 vs. #creativecommonszero)? Which ones do people look for? Which ones does Google look for?
  • Are there other people who already wrote about this kind of thing about other topics?
Of course, nobody needs strict guidelines for this kind of thing, even if that would mean some uniformity. But it would make tagging easier for me if I had some suggestions.

OK, thanks for considering this. Let me know how it goes. =)
