Similar Deviations
Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 900 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.


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 in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority as part of our quarterly community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by multiple deviants, Staff and Volunteers. 


Congratulations everyone! :dalove:

Art Under The Radar

Each day, hundreds of thousands of pieces of art are submitted to deviantART. As more and more artists join, create, and share their work, it becomes easy for high quality art to miss its chance to stand out and be seen.
Our new browse mode, Undiscovered, aims to bring new, high quality artwork to the foreground.




Finding Hidden Gems

Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork that has not yet drawn attention or recognition at the levels of Popular or What's Hot browse modes. Using an algorithm that identifies patterns in community behavior when curating content, Undiscovered generates a browsing experience that draws attention to creative art and talented artists that may not receive the same level of attention from other browse modes.

Please keep in mind that the algorithm that powers Undiscovered is still new and we may make changes as it grows in use.


Discover New Art Daily

Because Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork, the artwork displayed may change throughout the course of a day, frequently bringing you new art by a wide variety of artists, and giving more art and more artists the chance to be seen.




DeviantART is proud to present Undiscovered, a new Browse method designed to surface new, quality artwork that has yet to be discovered!

Congratulations to `Thiefoworld

Who is `Thiefoworld?



 
`Thiefoworld has made his mission to fill our community with vibrant colours and positive attitude. His illustrations are instantly recognisable and are somewhat iconic at deviantART. Thiefoworld's weekly webcomic is a must read for all deviants, and we love that his journals are filled with community spirit and encouragement for others.

You know you've picked the right deviant when you have to double check that he hasn't received the Deviousness Award already.

We are absolutely delighted to bestow the Deviousness Award for August 2012 to `Thiefoworld!

Deviousness Award

Congratulations to `blepharopsis


What is this Awesome Achievement?

The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.

`blepharopsis has developed a truly iconic gallery within our community. Whilst at first you may be somewhat creeped out by the extreme shots of creepy crawlies, you can't help but be captivated by the detail and quality of the artwork that has become Igor's trademark style.  Unlike any other insect photographer, Igor manages to capture human like qualities in the smallest creatures,  especially the exotic Praying Mantis. The lighting, vibrance, detail, and the anthropomorphic qualities he attains never ceases to amaze.

Who is `Blepharopsis ?

Igor is well known in our community for his innovative photography. His journals are full of detail regarding his travels across the globe, where he inevitably returns with stunning photography documenting his experience.  An amazing deviant in every way possible, we're honored to bestow Deviousness for November 2011 to `blepharopsis. Congratulations Igor!

Congratulations to `blepharopsis

This entry has an aggressive design with a bold stance showing IS attitude that stands out. It is almost animated but with just enough realism. It screams SEMA and is an instant eye catcher that will fit right in.

~moondoni has won

  • 6-Month Premium Membership to deviantART.com
  • 4,000 deviantART Points
  • $1,500 USD Cash Prize

Judge's Comments

Menacing and sleek. This design has amazing aesthetic consistency and a great presence that introduces unique components front to back. It is both conceptual and consistent with the evolution of the IS line.

~hgh0518 has won

  • 6-Month Premium Membership to deviantART.com
  • 4,000 deviantART Points
  • $1,500 USD Cash Prize

Judge's Comments

Fully embracing the Lexus spindle grill, the front facia is very bold and has just the right amount of attitude. The subtle use of color accentuates the lines without overpowering them.
