Deviousness Award


Congratulations to

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.

DanLuVisiArt's name is one that resonates around our community with a sense of awe and wonder. His artwork not only graces our galleries, but it also heading for the silver screen, as his infamous Last Man Standing is to be turned into a film. We're extrememly proud of Dan, who has put his 11 years in our community to excellent use, forging and sustaining a loyal fanbase. Not only that, but DanLuVisiArt always takes time out to share resources and tutorials, alongside exciting new artwork on a regular basis. There is no better way to kick start a New Year than by bestowing the Deviousness Award for January 2014 to DanLuVisiArt.

Congratulations to DanLuVisiArt

Look, not to rain on the parade for Dan, but this is his second time getting Deviousness.  Really, dA?  Do you guys not keep good record books of this kinda stuff or something?

To Dan, I say "Congratulations", but to the staff, I am quite disappointed.

Hey, honestly, it was a genuine mistake by myself. Dan had hidden the Deviousness widget on his page and I went ahead and awarded it to him, thinking he was long overdue for it.

It didn't have anything to do with his recent move towards the movie industry?  I get that Dan's a fantastic artist and probably an awesome person (as I've only conversed with him on the rare occasion, I can only guess at the latter), but I'm sure there were other deviants who deserved it just as much as he did. :hmm:  Mistakes are understandable, but I guess this one's not the type that will be rectified.

It's hardly recent, the discussions about his impending movie have been going on for years. Like I said, that's part of the reason that made me think he was long overdue to receive it.

I'm curious as to why you are seemingly against rewarding someone for success in their artistic endeavours?

I know his move towards movies has been an on-going discussion, but it seemed to me that the discussions were starting to pick up steam.  Pardon me if I misunderstand that.

I never said he doesn't deserve it, and I'm not at all against rewarding someone for success in their artistic endeavours.  I thought I made that part kind of clear. :shrug:  I just find it interesting that such an oversight was made for this award.

It's not really that interesting. It's a simple error made by me, nothing more, nothing less. I'll certainly make sure that such a thing isn't possible again.

Why not revoke the second award? Does that not seem like the logical thing to do? Deviousness seems like one of those things in life that you only get once, and I was impressed upon that that's exactly what it is--a one-time deal.

Or can it be legitimately received multiple times? :o This is certainly the first I've heard of it being awarded to the same person more than just once. I'm not saying he didn't deserve it the first time, but receiving it a second time (even through error), and then keeping it afterward with no further action, even after it's known that it's his second time? Seems a little off.

Well deserved, but didn't Dan already have this award?

It would appear he did, my mistake!
