Rarity by IG-64
Rarity by ~IG-64 is a top notch 3-Dimensional Fan Art. The details are simply fantastic, but I'm mostly impressed by Rarity's mane and tail and the reflections on her eye.

My first month as Fan Fiction Community Volunteer has been exciting and wonderful. I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who has welcomed me and sent me DD suggestions. Really, your support and help - and, well, you - are what makes deviantART such a superb and flourishing community. I've said it before, and I probably will again, dA is my social networking site. I love this community and you.

Complaints About Quality Declines in DD'sComplaints about quality declines in DDsComplaints About Quality Declines in DD's2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Let's take a quick look at what a Daily Deviation is first. You might remember this article from our last PE week A Daily Deviation is NOT an award, but a feature. If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at it! It's a great read and you can get a good foundation as to what a Daily Deviation stands for.
So, I'll be touching on the subject of "Complaints about quality declines in Daily Deviations". Why is this so important to touch on? That's a great question and I will be more than happy to answer it below as I describe some key factors that are often overlooked in the way of art vs quality.
Addressing Quality of Deviations
"A picture is worth a thousand words."
There is a lot of this going around "Daily Deviations are losing quality. They're not as beautimous as they used to be.". How about we step out of the shoes of "what is and isn't art" for just a s
PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b

Since your work got a DD, are you planning to do anything more with it? If so, what?
More vampire stuff, for sure, but nothing with that particular piece. I feel like the story was told well enough to let it stand alone.
Was your DD a self suggestion to one of the Lit CVs? If not, would you ever self suggest? If so, what made you select this piece to suggest over your others?

Have you ever seen a show, or read a book, and wanted to add to it? Do you like writing? Why not write a fan fiction?
Here at deviantArt, amidst the plethora of art galleries, is a thriving fan fiction community. Fan fiction, or fanfic, is fiction written by someone not affiliated with the franchise (i.e. a fan). Fanfics can be written about books, movies, television shows, video games, and even musicians. That's the beauty of fanfics. They can be about whatever you like.
In this feature we will delve into considerations to make when writing your own story (such as genres and character choices, common mistakes and writing tips). Please keep in mind these are just guidelines, and nothing is ever set in stone. Nor am I the absolute expert on all things (despite what I tell my children). These are merely things I consider when I write.

1. Why did you become a member of deviantART? What do you like best about deviantART?
Well, I used to dodge all art and art classes till December 2004. And it was then when a friend of mine, Rai-che, convinced me I should give it a try. She was a dA rookie then as well and was overjoyed with the page and its community, so my coming to deviantArt was closely tied to me becoming an artist. Or at least starting the journey to become one.
I enjoy the diversity that the server offers; all the various people I can meet and talk to. From Czech Republic to South Africa, from Los Angeles to Vladivostok, from the fans of StarCraft to the fans of Mass Effect. And so many amazing people to learn from and admire.

It's been happening a lot lately.
Whether it's a fleeting thought or a journal I see in my inbox. Or when I'm editing my own journals and I accidentally hit something from years ago. There are constant reminders of my past and how different things are now. Today, it started with Romaji's journal here: http://romaji.deviantart.com/art/Soon-to-be-Homeless-Total-Updated-269474390
I lost my home in 2008. Even with the best efforts, my cost of living outweighed the drastic pay cut sparked by the flailing economy. I traveled in my car from place to place (even to a place called Humble, Texas), hoping things would be better.
Looking back, I can say they didn't get better for a long time. But back then? I would've told you I'm happy and grateful for every good thing that came my way.

What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!

Recently, I announced changes to Daily Deviations in this journal and I'm happy to say that the response has been favorable. To review, we have made the following changes:
a> The "3-month rule" is now the "6-month rule" meaning an artist cannot receive another DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.
b> Daily Deviation selectors are limited to a maximum of one selection per day. This has been put in place to focus on quality vs quantity.
The hard-coding of these new guidelines is now in place (special thanks to ZombieCoder for that ).
These changes are part of an ongoing initiative to better our Dai
Seniority Announcement - December 2011This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 800 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.Seniority Announcement - December 20113 years ago in Personal More Like This
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised
