Fell behind on suggestions

Fri Apr 10, 2015, 3:52 PM


I have fallen a bit behind on replying to everyone's DD suggestions, but they are being read! Just not replied to. 

I am going to get back to everyone soon, thanks for the steady flow of suggestions!

And always remember it's 100% ok to suggest yourself, it's not better or worse than if someone else had suggested you!

Digital Spotlight

Sat Jan 24, 2015, 5:02 PM
:icondigitalspotlight:

New group dedicated to bringing exposure to the underexposed! 

It is a quality controlled group, accepting only high level intermediate to advanced work, so you know it won't be flooding your inbox!

Don't think your work is quite at that level yet? No worries! You are still welcomed to submit to our favorites folder!

So whether you need some exposure, or are looking for a steady flow of kick ass digital art this is the place for you! 

:icondigitalspotlight:

Not just the models. 

Often times I will see DD suggestions with credits, but only the model image is credited. That is not enough. 

If the other resources are you own and or purchased you can simply say that in the description. Or else the piece will be ineligible for a DD.  

Otherwise respect the DA stock artists and give credit where credit is due. They are invaluable and the PM community would not be nearly as strong without them.

Don't believe me? Go take a look at the prices on premium stock sites, now go look at the variety on other free stock sites. Then come back to DA and be grateful.

This is just a quick reminder. Thanks for all the DD suggestions so far! Keep them coming!

New Years Resolutions!

Mon Dec 29, 2014, 5:33 PM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


Some people love them others are sick of them, but I certainly understand the appeal of starting something new right at the beginning of the year. It just FEELS right. Like waiting till monday to start that diet you 100% are actually going to start this time, because no one want's to start on a Wednesday right?

Mine

I have a few! They aren't really linked to the new year, but they are things I'd like to continue to work towards and achieve!
  1. Get my license. I'm 23 and still can't drive. I have a car and a learners permit, and by this time next year I will have finally joined the rest of the world in driving bliss. Or die trying.
  2. Be a part-time freelancer. Making 100% of my living off of freelance work seems to hefty a goal. If I can just make a good majority doing freelance I will be happy! For now. 
  3. Date! Pretty boys can start sending in their applications early! 

And then my big goal I'd like to accomplish is....move to Maine! Main has become my promised land to me. I have never not lived amongst the cornfields of Illinois, and I am sick of it and I'm ready to head east.  I don't know anyone there, I have never visited there, and I have no
real security there. I just need to give it a shot. 

I have other smaller ones too. I'd like to get into jogging once it gets warmer. I want to send my parents on a week vacation. Other small lifestyle changes that have to do with my anxiety. All that good stuff!

Yours 

What about you? What are you hoping to tackle in the new year? How was 2014 for you? Do you have the weir hatred of odd numbered years that I constantly hear about?

Recently I received a lot of points from one of my friends who were leaving dA for good, and had decided to distribute his points out to his friends. Since I don't have anything special to use these on, I decided to start an Art Challenge for everyone who'd be interested. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time, and so I'm very excited to have gotten this chance. I imagine this will be something that will happen repeatedly, if time and point-economics allow it!

If You Could DD: The Feature!

Sun Dec 21, 2014, 12:03 AM by AbbeyMarie:iconabbeymarie:


cleaner


This is technically up a day early! 

Here are the features of the deviations you would choose if you could DD for the Community Feature Project: If I Could DD! Thank you to everyone who participated in the PM community, there were so many! 31 features to be exact! And with around 10 devintationes per feature (at the very least), that ends up being well over 300 pieces of art featured by our community! 

If you did one, but do not see it here, please link me to it!

Community Feature Project: If I could DD...This December, Community Relations has organized a wonderful project to give us the opportunity to share works that we would choose for Daily Deviations if we could!
How does this feature work?
    Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery.
    (i.e. Stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery. Photomanipulators would feature manips, etc.) When your journal feature is live, link it back to your Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the comments area. (i.e. Digital Artist's (Drawings & Paintings, Mixed Media) will need to link to diphylla or Aeirmid's journal.
After all of the features have been linked to your Community Volunteer's journal, they  will then publish a master journal feature of all the community features.
If You want to create journal for photomanipulations, later You should post it below
  Community Feature Project: If I Could DD...Hey there! In my newswire I found an interesting project and I want to take part in it
 I already was a large gallery of my work and for the whole year, I am a user DA, I have not received any DD. :(
I wrote to the right people, but it took six months and nothing. My pictures are beautiful and I put a lot of effort for them. I love them all! It is good that there is such a project where unrecognized artists can show their work! Here is a list of my work, which, in my opinion, should get DD but never got.

  If I could DD - featureMy small contribution for the community project "If I could DD". I'm taking the opportunity to collect some nice features without the stress that comes with the CV position. :D

My category of choice is (unsurprisingly) Photo-Manipulation (although I was considering Space Art and Scifi for a moment).
Since I am not a real CV I took the liberty to ignore the lack of stock credits or description in some of the deviations, and some others already have a lot of favorits, but so what. :shrug: Other than that they should all be eligible (I think). Enjoy the features!

  If I Could DD - what would I choose?There is currently running a Community Project through dA and I thought it would be awesome participate in it. My chosen gallery category is photomanipulation (obviously) because as I see, this category  is less represented among other categories and this one is in I'm doing my little stuff (a little bit selfish, huh?).

I tried to choose those artist's works who haven't gotten a DD in the previous 6 months but gosh, it's so hard and maybe in some cases I failed this rule. All respect for the CVs!
Here are the works I prefer because I can imagine a story behind them, or I have feelings and thought about them, or they are just simply beautiful and good to see them:

  If I could DDThis is my little contribut for the community project "If I could DD"
I think it is a nice project and as I am a photomanip artist, I choose to search my favorites for DD works. I don't searched for credits only for quality, inspiration, ideas and concepts..

  If I could DD (again)This is a feature for the "If I could DD" Community Project. The idea is to put together a collection of artwork you would personally feature as Daily Deviations if you were a Community Volunteer.
I (of course) selected work from the photomanipulation/digital mixed media galleries.

  If I could give a DD
If I could give a DD
I tried to do a list of works that I felt should receive a DD, but after days of doing it, I couldn’t go through with it. I watch 1200 Deviants and I fave, comment, and reply to all of their works. To say that I have an enormous faves folder, would be a vast understatement. I could not, in good conscience, pick only a few, for to do so, my feature would end up being too large and probably broken up into about 100 different features.
I watch some amazing artists, their works are just incredible, gorgeous, creative, original, and downright beautiful. There is no possible way that I can pick only a few out of all of them.
So instead of picking a select few, I narrowed it down to just 1. I picked just 1, for one reason, emotion. All of my watchers deserve to have DD’s. Regardless if they are beginner artists, or the advanced professional, their emotions, feelings, creativity, originality, and their hard work should all be deserving of DD
  If I Could DD
What Daily Deviations would I choose if I were to become a CV today?
Hard to choose, there are so many beautiful manipulations I love. Here is a non exhaustive (in no particular order) choice among the last deviations I faved:

  Community Feature Project: If I could DD...Have you ever wished that you could pick a Daily Deviation Feature?
I'm sure we've all seen an amazing piece of art or stock that we wished could have a bit more exposure. Well, this is your chance! This December we are encouraging you to feature your fellow deviants with a journal of images that you would feature as a Daily Deviation if you could. So let's embrace the Holiday Season and spread some good cheer by joining in and featuring our community!
The Game Plan
Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery (i.e. stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery, photomanipulators would feature manips, etc). Try to stick with one gallery per journal - nothing stops you from doing multiple journals with different galleries!
When your journal feature is live, link it back to your Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the co

After going through thousands (literally) of sent notes, drafts and faves, after choosing again and again to come down with only some of them, here is my final list! All of them are wonderful pieces that I really wish they would become DDs! :love:

Hey guys!

I want to do a feature of any active photomanipulation/mixed media contest that are currently going on on DA. They simply have to allow those mediums, they don't have to be exclusive! 

Do you know of a contest that is still currently running until at least the 31st? Post them down below! 

Also keep in mind both :iconwe-heart-photomanip: and :iconcrphotomanipulation: are always looking to bring more exposure to your contest! So be sure to note them anytime you are running a contest so we can help pimp it out!
