Daily Deviations I've given to date as Fan Art Community Volunteer.

DD Suggestions Guidelines

Hello, everyone! I'm your resident Fan Art Gallery Community Volunteer along with my partners in crime, Lyricanna and Ry-Spirit. :love:. I'm also currently in charge of the Cartoons & Comics gallery.

One of the privileges I've been given is to choose Daily Deviations be it by finding them by myself or via suggestions. So here's the basic guidelines to send me yours:

:bulletgreen: Send your suggestions to me alexandrasalas in a note with 1 to 5 suggestions max! Also, please add thumbs instead of links. Remember, a picture says a thousand words!

:bulletgreen: Remember to send your suggestion notes to only one Community Volunteer at a time. That way you'll save us confusion and misunderstandings.

:bulletgreen: Adding a brief description of why you think the piece deserves a DD is not mandatory, but much appreciated.

:bulletgreen: I do accept self suggestions, but remember to give me a good reason as to why I should give your piece a DD. ;)

:bulletgreen: Quality of art: When sending suggestions, please bear in mind that I want to feature unique works. The best of an artist's gallery. What I look for in a Daily Deviation is not cuteness. Cute just doesn't cut it, like Lyricanna said. I search for emotions, technical skill (composition, shading, colour, etc), interaction of the characters with their surroundings and other characters. I'm looking for pieces that tell me a story and/or show emotion. Of course, there are cute pieces that can show that, but if you're going to send me Twilight Sparkle staring into nothingness, it's not going to get featured.

:bulletgreen: Copies of official art or screenshots: I'm not talking about direct traces, but pieces that have been "eyeballed" from said sources. They're good for practicing purposes, but as I said above I'd rather feature a fanartist interpretation of their fandom of choice.

:bulletgreen: Old art: Another thing I've noticed is that people send me old works from time to time. Things that were uploaded back in 2004-2008 (or older). I have no problems featuring old work, but if you find something from 2008 or far back that you think it's good... why don't you look at the rest of that gallery and see how much progress the artist has achieved? I'm pretty sure you'd be able to find much better art in their recent submissions. Just look at it this way: would you rather have a DD with an old piece from your gallery or a DD with a newer piece that you believe shows your growth as an artist over the years?

:bulletgreen: Don't suggest pieces from artists who have received a DD in the past SIX months. On that same token, I wont feature anyone with 3 DDs or more.

:bulletgreen: I can only feature Fan Art and Cartoons & Comics, so make sure your suggestions belong to the proper category. :heart:

:bulletgreen: While I will give preference to less known artists , that doesn't mean I'm not open to feature pieces from "popular" artists, as long as I consider the piece to be worthy enough of the feature (keep in mind that this is the exception to the rule). :) However, I will NOT feature works who have received more than 2000 favorites at the time I read the note.

So that's it. Pretty simple, huh? Feel free to send me your suggestions. While I might not reply to all your notes, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your efforts and dedication to the deviantART Community. :heart:

Hello there!

My name is Alexandra and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I'm your friendly neighborhood Mentor and Fan Art Community Volunteer. If you have any questions, concerns, projects, contest or just want to chat, feel free to contact me via note! :)

In my free time, I draw, paint digitally, browse deviantART, watch anime and cartoons, take photos and laze about. Oh and I'm a big Pokémon geek as you may or may not have noticed.

My dream is to become a children's book illustrator, but I still have lots of room for improvement in that department. Someday I'll make this happen though.

I joined deviantART back in June 2003 to share my Pokémon fanart with other people, but as time passed by, I branched out and started working on other stuff, especially photography and illustration.
