It's All About Presentation (Mostly)
As more and more people start taking pictures of their nether regions on their iphones or posing myspace style in front of their HTC's - the competitive world of getting a Daily Deviation gets just that much harder... :B I kid. But... daily, I am bombarded with awesome suggestions (which I love) and I'm not complaining about. But there has to be a criteria of sorts, that sets an image above the rest. Here are a few things I look for that you might not have noticed before... The first thing I look at when I stumble across an image or view a suggestion from somebody, is how the artist has presented their work to the deviantART Community. Titl

Here's the obligatory intro paragraph. People like a little pomp and ceremony, right? A dramatic buildup to the final reveal makes things much more exciting. And agonizing for the contestants. But agonizing in the good way. Like the Red M&M in that commercial. The problem is, I have no idea what to say. I write better when I'm not hungry. Did you know lemon meringue is my favorite kind of pie? And this is my favorite song. Hard to believe people actually like my writing, isn't it? But it's true, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten such awesome entries this year. Seriously, you guys really raised the bar and I'm so flattered and thrilled and also disappointed I can't give out more rewards. There's only so many winning slots and it breaks my heart to have to pass over some of these. Hey, that intro didn't turn out half bad. If you're still reading this, thank you for putting up with me.

Anyway, let's get to it.

Fourth Place

go to...
Nonissue by Underbase
from the story Force of Nature

Third Place

go to...
Captive by DrZime
from the story Alienated

Second Place

go to...
:bigthumb365332028:
from the story Apex Predator

And now...

:star:First Place:star:

go to...


Apex Predator by Sidonie

also from Apex Predator


Crongrats and thank you all! Winners, please note me with your adresses so I can begin the process of sending you your material prizes, and to let me know you've seen this. I didn't want to spoil the surprise via note before you saw this.

Honorable Mentions

First Date by Nightenscythe The First Sight by toscabear Cheesecake by J-Grey Bull takes point by Canalus

Thank you. If you still want it you have to wait. I just used like all of my money in paying back a guy for a new trailer tow hitch for $250 since that is the only thing I damaged when my breaks failed and I rear ended him.
