Are you experiencing an issue with DeviantArt? Please check our Status Forum first before submitting a ticket in case we are already aware of the issue you are experiencing.
If you have elected to use a copyrighted work (in whole or in part) created by another creative person, then you should obtain their permission, otherwise the avatar will be removed should we receive a take down from the copyright owner.
Avatars which contain nudity or otherwise violate policy should be reported to the Help Desk.
If your artwork is being used as an avatar without permission, please file a take down notice.
