Decoding Daily Deviations






























Loveless Midnight

Loveless Midnight is a monthly feature collaboration between lovelessdevotions and MidnightExigent, each one centred on a particular theme. Our purpose is to showcase the most interesting and high-quality pieces in the fantastic arts for deviants to enjoy and be inspired by. :ahoy:

Loveless Midnight #1 - Armor of the AgesBe it in wars of ancient times or the present conflicts of humankind
Whether in the wildest battles of science fiction and epic fantasy combined
Ranging our past long gone or imagined futures far off
There is always striking armor worn by the defenders and offenders of warring factions
Ready for the daunting clash of fatal interaction
Designed to protect, intimidate and impress, they serve the same purpose in every realm
Dull iron, shiny chrome, simple or intricate
The paladin, the space marine, the dungeon keeper, the cybernetic,
Try bullets, swords or lasers
Metal versus metal
In any place, any age, any plane of reality
Standing against these fighters is a fool's mentality.
Meet these valiant warriors in their astounding second skins.


LOVELESS MIDNIGHT #2: STAR STUFF IN USYou envied those constellations beyond us 
I felt your hungry stare
Wanting them to possess you
But knowing not how to dare
So I offered in love to show you
What you did not yet understand
These shimmering shards above us
Could be reborn within our hands
Spiral through dark sinews
A gasping galaxy of minds
When it was all over, darling
We were the universe entwined.

Ocean, Stars, Sky, and You by muddymelly
Loveless Midnight #3: To AI or not to AI
“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race…. It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded”
- Stephen Hawking

Loveless Midnight #5: The Pleasure Principle "I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul. "
― Pablo Neruda




“I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.”  
― Margaret Atwood

The Undead Lovers by IMustBeDeadTwo Lovers by Biffno
'TIl Death do us part by thefreshdoodle
"Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.”
― Paulo Coelho
Loveless Midnight #6: The Macabre MadhouseJoin the weird and the wily as we stage our show
You've heard the rumours, this is the place to go!
The cotton candy's scarce and forget merry-go-rounds
But if you're lucky, you might kill a clown.
Come back my child, don't be scared
It's only a lady with an untrimmed beard.
What's that howling you ask? Must be the acrobats
A bad performance can merit the rack. 
Are you frightened of the freaks? I know they're a sight
But the truly awful ones only come out at night.

In the meantime there's so much more to enjoy:
The magician, the lion-tamer, the two-headed boy. 
We're a circus of misfits, a madhouse of fun
Let's get you a costume so you can stick around!


Loveless Midnight #7: Oddities After 11
Stranger Things is beautiful and otherwordly. It gives a strange sense of comfort even in the show's most uncomfortable situations. There is nostalgia and then there's nostalgia executed with excellence.
Those kids... they're kids. One can feel like a kid again watching them. They're awkward, they play, they have adventures.
They really pull you in, don't they? These characters are wonderfully convincing.
We can't help but have a favorite - Eleven, of course. I like "Elf" for her, which also happens to mean eleven in German. Works, right?
That enigmatic, tortured girl can't not be the focus of this feature, hence the title. She speaks very few words through the series and yet expresses so much thanks to Millie Bobby Brown's haunting performance.
We had no difficulties finding amazing fan art pieces for Stranger Things with which we can explore the characters, places and underlying themes. Let's go to the Upsidedown. Don't get lost.
Loveless Midnight #8: Ghost Shell
All things change in a dynamic environment.
Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.


I feel confined, only free to expand myself within boundaries.

If a technological feat is possible, man will do it.
Almost as if it's wired into the core of our being.

Getting Started on DeviantArtHello and welcome! :wave:
:iconDAWelcomeWagon:
If you've found this guide, then there's a good possibility you are new to DeviantArt. If that is the case, then welcome to the internet's largest art community! If you're not new to the community, you might still be interested (especially if you scroll to the bottom). Over at DAWelcomeWagon, we're thrilled that you decided to become a member. The group page has many wonderful resources for you to take advantage of. There is even an associated chat room called :#welcome: for you to hang out in and meet some deviants ("deviants" are what we call DA's members) both new and old.
We don't want you to feel too confused while you're getting to know the website and community. It's a big place with countless ways to share your deviations (your creations) and find artwork to inspire you. So we put together this helpful Getting Started on DeviantArt guide to connect you with a number of helpful tutorials that will as
Welcome to Daily Deviations Week IIWelcome to Daily Deviations Week II
Some months back we put together another Daily Deviations projecteducate week which was quite successful.  In light of some of the amazing feedback we recieved during that week, we decided to put together another DD week to highlight some things we were unable to cover last time.  During this week we will again focus on some common themes which surround Daily Deviations in our community, and try to shed some light on them.  We hope that we will address your concerns, but feel free to ask questions at any time!  
For anyone who missed our last DD week, we encourage you to look over those articles as well.

PE: Organizing Projects and ContestsProjects and Contests are amazing ways to get more involved in the community and branch out to the community, be it that you are running the project or contest or that you are simply taking part in it or even helping out with it in any way. Below will detail some of the ways to better get involved with Projects and Contests.
Interview with Aeirmid
Aeirmid is well known within our community for running fun and out of the box Projects and Contests. Jade heads up Arts-and-Health, ran the Halloween-HQ contest this past Halloween, did a month long projecteducate on Photomanipulation, and has ran several other successful contests and projects just within the past year. As such I felt she was the perfect person to interview in this article.
How can members get their projects/contest seen so that more people will get involved with them?
OK my first piece of advice would be to partner with the
Gaining Exposure To ArtGaining Exposure For Your Own Art:
Being active on the site is probably the best and most effective way to get yourself and your art seen.  Leaving thoughtful comments on others art will often result in them coming to your page to find out more about you and see your art.  Being involved and making friends will promt people to focus on you and your art giving you a bit more exposure.  Leaving critiques, helping to moderate groups, posting in the forums, or simply chatting it up in the chatrooms.  These can all be beneficial in getting you more exposure.  Below I'd like to outline some of the wonderful ways, I believe, you can gain extra exposure to your art.  
Groups:
Joining groups which are relevant to your interests and the art which you make can be very helpful in getting your art out there and seen by like minded individuals.  The introduction of groups by dA has made it very e
2016: Big changes at Project EducateProject Educate
Dear members,
Project Educate is an ongoing endeavor for the Community Relations team -- one we have a lot of passion for and one that we want to lead as successfully as possible. These past few months we have been analysing feedback from the community and from our own team with regards to what we've been doing well here at projecteducate and what we should consider improving upon. We'd like to roll out a series of changes in 2016 in an effort to better cater to the community and offer you all new, long overdue opportunities.
We want projecteducate to be a place where everybody feels welcome; where everybody has a chance to teach, to learn and to lead. Below you will find some of the core changes we will be implementing within the next few weeks:
Community Led Weeks:
The majority, if not all weeks at projecteducate have been led by Community Volunteers. We'd like to change that. projecteducate is a project that was made for the community; so
10 reasons why Features are awesomeHello there beautiful people :wave:
Since I joined DeviantArt, among all the great things you can do and enjoy here, I discovered doing features was the best :la:
So Today I want to talk to you about FEATURES. They are awesome right, we know that :la:
 
I wish everybody in this community would do features, wouldn't this place be swimming in awesomeness :#1:
So here I thought about some reasons to convince you ( those who don't do features :stare: ) to start your own features and live the fun you are missing :la:
:target: Features are the best way to promote Art, which is why we are all here, to share art and appreciate it in the best ways.
:target:  Features are easy to do :la: I will tell you an easy way to do it, the way I do it in case you didn't know. Throughout the week, I collect my favorite pieces in a favorite collection, and when I decide to do it, I use stash to write the journal, and stash gives you the option to put anything on your journal be it emoticons, your o
WHY to get noticed on dAThere are tons of articles out there that describe what you should do to get noticed on dA. The advice contained pretty much comes down to "if you are active, people will notice you":
fave other people's art - they might fave yours back
comment on other people's art - they might return the favour
use your comments to actually talk to the other artist; don't just say "wow", but tell them why you liked their art; give critiques
use the chats & forums
use your own journal to its full advantage (tell people about yourself / art features / ...)
take care to make your userpage nice-looking and informative
give out llama badges
find some groups to submit your art to
and don't forget to actually post something to your gallery regularly
While all of this is certainly true (seeing as when you don't put your name - with the attached link to your page - out there, no one will have a chance to find you to begin with), the question that remains for me is:
WHY?
Why do you
The Key to keeping yourself motivated properly.Let me start off with telling you what motivation is and why you need it.
A motivation is a reason behind doing something a certain way to work yourself up to a certain goal. Just having a goal but no understanding of how to get there, means you have no way to motivate yourself and your goal will be hard to reach. 
Therefore motivation is needed desperately in order to become truly good at something.
The motivation to eat is the feeling for hunger and the end goal of ending the hunger and feeling healthy and energized. This type of motivation is a feeling. 
Which brings me to: Intrinsic motivation and Extrinsic motivation.
Shortly explained:
Intrinsic motivation: Is a drive that comes from within the person itself. It's a self-desire to seek out new things and new challenges to see how far you can reach to observe and to gain knowledge. This person can enjoy the struggle towards a goal absent the reward. 
Extrinsic motivation: This is a motivatio
PE: Introduction to the Digital Art categoriesHi! Welcome to the Digital Art categories central! The following article is intended to be a quick guide on the Digital Art categories to get you started, most of the descriptions included here came  from past Project Educate articles (so thanks for all the current and past CVs for their indirect help :P) and will include links to more articles if you want a more deep insight of said category, as well as a list of CVs you can send your DD suggestions to. (As of December 2012, for the updated list of current volunteers you can always check this blog)
But first, what is considered DIGITAL Art?
Digital Art includes every artwork created with the use and/or help of digital software and tools. Said in simple words: art you create with a computer (or other dev
Getting Your Art Seen: Being FeaturedCommunity Week
You may remember that JenFruzz previously wrote an article on doing features of your fellow deviants and their art, letting people know how to become involved in the community. And while featuring others will bring people to your profile as they look through your other offerings to see what kind of art you make, you might wonder how you can go about getting yourself featured.
Feature Yourself
There is no shame in plugging the works you're most proud of. You plug them to your friends, and you have no qualms asking people to view your work when you're posting it and submitting it to groups. Featuring yourself is an option for getting your works noticed! But it's only effective if you're bringing other people over to view your work, right?
There is more than one way to go about this.
:star: Use the
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.
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
PE Daily Deviations: What if...? 
Hello everyone! :wave:
After news articles explaining 'The Myth and the Legend' of the Daily Deviations, how to suggest them, tolerance towards Daily Deviations, the negativity, the focus on the notes and what it actually is, this article tackle the 'What if...?' scena
PE Art Features and Daily DeviationsDaily Deviations:
As per :faq61:, The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.

Benefits of suggesting Daily Deviations:
helping artists gain more exposure
deviantART is such a large website with many members, often great art can fall through the cracks and go unnoticed as a result. Daily Deviations are usually a wonderful way to put a bit of a spotlight on a particular piece or artist. Often people like to focus on the lesser known artists, though it may be worth noting that even deviations uploaded by popular artists can at times use more exposure as well
Getting the Most out of dA: CommentingUsually, when you read something involving 'Commenting', you think of deviations and the commenting platform that allows other members of the community to voice their thoughts and opinions on the art shown. However, what is pretty evident, and something that most of us may forget, is that deviantART runs on the ability to give and get comments, be it on pieces of artwork, our profile pages, forums, and everywhere else in between.
In a sense, without the ability to give and get comments, deviantART wouldn't be much of a website, much less #1 of online art communities around. Comments are not solely the cause of what makes deviantART what it is, but it has a huge impact on a lot of things. By giving and getting comments, not only do we interact with other members to really make this a community, we also have the ability to get our voices heard.
It's quite an odd concept with us all facing screens, typing out our thoughts and opinions, but one thing we shouldn't forget is that commen
How to write an article for Project EducateProject Educate
Welcome to a step-by-step tutorial addressing how you should be writing your article for projecteducate! Please read carefully through this article, and closely observe each screenshot so that you can have a good understanding on how to proceed as you publish what might be the first of many PE articles! :dummy:
Step 1: You're on DeviantArt, possibly wondering what "sta.sh" is and where you can find it.


Step 2: Hover over that big "Submit" button, and you'll find a few drop-down options. One of them is sta.sh! Click on it.


Step 3: You've clicked on sta.sh, and now you're seeing this page. As you can see, there are many options. The one you're looking for is "Compose in StashWriter"


Step 4: You've clicked on "Compose in StashWriter" and now you're seeing this page. This is where you write your article!

How to Comment - Pointers and ExamplesThis guide was written by ProjectComment as a Group, by deviants for deviants. Not only have we sought suggestions from our volunteers, but we have examples of constructive comments from the rest of the community as well, making this a true, collective effort. After reading this, it will be hard to not write a constructive comment.
Each category of art has its own set of pointers in alphabetical order, suggested by our volunteers. If you have any more to contribute, spot a mistake, etc. please feel free to contact us! :D

Why Comment in the First Place?Many people ask themselves (sometimes on a daily basis) why they should comment on a piece of work. Whether it's just a deviation that pops up into our message centres or a deviation on deviantART's home page, what makes us decide whether we should, or even want to, comment on that piece?
Why do we bother? Or more importantly, why don’t we bother?
This guide explores the thoughts that we may have, the excuses we make, and, hopefully, a few thoughts to encourage you to comment, not just with a few words and that's it, but to really give a fellow artist a constructive comment that they deserve... that we deserve.
What is mentioned below is by no means accurate or complete and it does not apply to everyone. It was written by ProjectComment as a Group, by deviants, for deviants and we sincerely hope you enjoy reading this.

5 Expert Tips for a Stellar PortfolioThe greatest asset of an artist seeking work is an outstanding portfolio. I can think of no other industry in which skill level can trump a degree to such an extent. Self taught? No problem. Prove you know what you're doing and you're hired. But how do you know what to include in your portfolio? Is it really that big of a deal?
Portfolios are an illustrator's resume, and therefore ought to be handled with as much precision and editing—“proofreading” if you will. Wonky anatomy, like spelling errors, can push away prospective employers. Before you show your masterpieces to the world ask yourself if what you've chosen is the best representation of what you have to offer, and soak in these expert tips from illustrators Donald Wu, Neil Swaab, and Chris Oatley:
1. Pick Only Your Best Work
According to children's illustrator, Donald Wu, a “portfolio is only as good as its weakest piece.” Nothing in your portfolio should be less than good. Otherwise clients
New Notifications and Reporting UpdatesOne of our most frequently requested features is to do more with optimizing one's browsing experience, blocking deviants one would rather not interact with, and better catching the types of content that go against DeviantArt policy.
We have been working on five new systems to streamline your DeviantArt experience that will be rolling out to all deviants over the coming days. If you don't see the changes described below, you will very soon.
I just don't want to see this
You may have seen this change already. If you find a deviation that doesn't necessarily go against DeviantArt policy but still isn't quite your style, you will find the option to select "I just don't want to see this" upon hitting the Report button. This will not send a report to our Moderation Desk, but will rather hide that deviation from wherever you might come across it on DeviantArt, including galleries and browse pages! The owner of the deviation will not be notified that you did this. From there,

Hello everyone!
In this article, we’ll focus on mature content. We’ll answer questions about what it actually is, what sort of categories and levels it has, what DA’s policy on graphic content and sexual themes is, what breaks the regulations and how you can report the pieces breaking it, and how you can customize your browsing experience to stop seeing things you don’t want. 
I will be copiously quoting from DA’s support center articles – if you’d like to go straight to the source, here are the links through which you can access them:

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
lovelessdevotions has been a member of the DeviantArt community for four years and has already become easily recognizable as a mentor and friend to many. She embodies the true spirit of the community by spending much of her time promoting and celebrating the works of others. Her vast array of collections and frequent features that showcase talented artists throughout the community prove that having an eye for talented artists and inspirational displays is as important of creating art oneself. Her commitment to the community is what led to her being selected as a Community Volunteer, and she won’t be stopping anytime soon. She’s always the first to lend a hand and celebrate deviants, and it is for this reason that we are honored to bestow the Deviousness Award for October 2017 to lovelessdevotions.

THE NEXT BIG THING




























THE NEXT BIG THING #1Welcome to The Next Big Thing, my feature of artists that I consider to be on the cusp of setting the DA community afire with their styles and visionary concepts. In terms of the criteria for selection, these artists will all have developed galleries where the strength of their artistic ability can be gleaned and where we see a commitment to developing their skills and showcasing their works to the benefit of the community on the whole. With the goal in mind of highlighting "the next big thing," I will for the most part only include artists with less than 2000 watchers; however, it cannot be stressed enough that this feature does not live and die by profile statistics, but operates with the purpose of getting you excited about these incredible talents and the paintings that capture their brilliance. Each journal will feature 4 artists with 3 paintings that have stimulated my intere THE NEXT BIG THING#2The Next Big Thing seeks to highlight and bring recognition to the outstanding talent on DA who are poised to become the next community luminaries.
