Interactive News 01: should DA get bigger?
Best kind of journalism is the one that generates mass opinion on the said matter. Best kind of a news story is the one that gathers the most audience to itself, one that tells a story most passionately and most clearly.
Today I present to you an idea- interactive opinion journalism/news.
Every news article that goes out there on the DA News page is viewed by thousands of deviantartists, every comment is read, every opinion is dissected and discussed/fought over in the comments section.
Interactive journalism is basically a NEWS article with an open question which you answer yes or no. It's a news article with a poll attached to it, that'll either approve the news, or reject it... at the same time gathering a vote number to itself, leaving the administration of the site something of interest to ponder about!
Today, my question to you is:
Should deviant get bigger?
My personal opinion, as an awesome reporter/Da old timer- yes, and as fast as possible.
We are all artists/art viewe

I really hope to spend a bit more time doing art in the future. I'm certain that my "skills" have improved somewhat since I last posted a deviation. 
One of the priorities on my task list is the preparation of artist guidelines.  In general, I have realized that I am really bad at providing creative guidance to other artists.  Have any of you dealt with artists guidelines in any significant degree?

My priority is to ensure that the art that I use for my game is inclusive and representative of humanity as a whole, rather than the straight white male "standard" audience.  Still, that isn't enough to really support artists at work and my art direction skills are rather poorly developed.

My pleasure, I like fav'ing high quality artists who take commissions. :) I also own a very small RPG publishing company so I might be in touch in the future.

My pleasure, you seem to excel in the area where I am particularly weak so it's a pleasure to watch.
IADM Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thanks a lot Jason!:bow:
What would that area be?
Because I really wouldn´t know what my area of excel is...Really.

Black and white lineart and the like. It's an area / style that I have little skill, which is obvious if you look at my gallery. My strength is in colour theory and some digital art, but I can't produce the initial sketch or inked product very effectively.

It is indeed awesome. The only criticism I have is that the angle/shape of the sword seems a touch off, but beyond that it is flawless.
DavidSondered Featured By Owner May 12, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
yeah, it is mainly because of the curve of the blade though, I had to choose between dynamic pose and straight blade or non-dynamic pose and curved blade. Unsurprisingly enough I picked option three...curved AND dynamic ;) cheers for the crit though, anything to improve :)
