[EDIT: Please read Daily Deviations Update by $Moonbeam13]
Welcome to my Daily Deviation Guidelines! This is the place where you can find all the information about suggesting DDs to me and some stuff about DDs in General.
Alright, let's get started!
Visit the Daily Deviation Page! Come here every day to find out which deviations have become a Daily Deviation.
From The deviantART FAQ
FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?
Before You Suggest A Deviation To Me:
- Make sure the deviant hasn't received a Daily Deviation in the last 6 months.
- Make sure it is in the right gallery! I take suggestions for Digital Art > Typography & Traditional Art > Typography
- I also take suggestions for Resources & Stock Images > Fonts .
- I do NOT take suggestions for Literature > Visual Poetry! Please send these suggestions to one of the Literature CVs: ^Beccalicious or $wreckling. If you accidentally send me one, I will forward your note to the proper CV.
What Matters In My Decision Of DDing A Deviation?
Have a look at my Featured DDs Folder to find out which deviations I have featured in the past. This may give you an insight into what I am looking for in rewarding DDs.
Pay attention to proper grammar, spelling and punctuation! The only exception is using a quote for the artwork, that is "wrong" in the first place.
If you come across an awesome artwork that has errors in that regard, kindly point them out to the artist. I am sure he will appreciate the feedback and actually editing the errors will increase the awesomesauce of his work. Just remember to do so in a constructive and not descending manner.
What if the Deviation is not in English?
If you are familiar with the language, please mention in your suggestion note what the piece is actually about. If you don't speak the language in the deviation either, politely ask the Deviant what it says. Or try google translate
I like to know what the Art I feature actually says.
Other important points:
When suggesting a work, you can pay attention to one or some of these points:
- Visual impact of the artwork.
- Quality of the technical execution.
- Originality of the visual or concept.
- Typographic accuracy.
Is the Deviation a recent submission by the artist?
Artists develop and as they do, they sometimes start to dislike their previous artworks. If you come across a great artwork, but it is over a year old, take the time to visit the artists gallery and look for a recent submission.
Especially pay attention, when the Deviant has received a Daily Deviation for a more recent artwork, than the one you want to suggest.
A DD has to inspire and touch people. It does not have to be a master piece or perfect. The way it makes you feel is more important than technical quality
I do accept them. It is completely fine to be proud of your own art and wanting to reach a broader audience. If you do send in a suggestion, please don't forget to add why you think it should be featured as a Daily Deviation. This will make it easier for me to understand why you like it so much and I will have an easier time, finding words about it. Also I will not use your name as the suggester in the DD description.
However if I will not feature it, I will let you know. If you want to, I can give you a critique (Premium Members only) or leave feedback on the Deviation. I can also point you to groups related to typography or giving feedback.
There is nothing to feel uncomfortable about, when suggesting your own work
How To Suggest A Daily Deviation?
There are 2 ways to do this:
- Send me a note titled "DD Suggestion" by going to my profile and hitting the "Send a Note" button.
Add the thumbcode (or link) of the Deviation.
Explain why you think the deviation should be a Daily Deviation. This will make me understand why you like it and help me choosing it as a DD.
- You can also send me a note directly from the Deviation. If the user enabled the sharing via note option there will be the "Share on deviantART" button.
Add me as recipient and add the reason why it should be a DD in the message field.
The note will automatically be titled with the Deviation name and contain the Deviations thumbcode.
Ask Me If You Have Any Questions Left!
I don't bite. At least not usually
So, let's start suggesting
