Watch Recommendations
A few months ago, we released Watch Recommendations to new deviants -- a feature that suggests deviants to watch for those who have just joined DeviantArt.  The aim being to match new deviants with active deviants -- ones who represent the depth and breadth of all DeviantArt.com has to offer. Starting today, we’re adding deviant recommendations to your watch. The new Watch Recommendations will display occasionally in your watch, suggesting deviants you might be interested in following. Deviants who appear as recommendations include people who have proven to be friendly and engaging in the community, as well as deviants who have reached
Collaborative Deviations: A Discussion
A common request from deviants is to post collaborative deviations, where more than one deviant has worked to create the end product. In our recent Top Community Feature Requests and Our Responses journal, we briefly addressed why we haven’t yet undertaken collaborative deviations.  However, we want to open a discussion around how collaborations could theoretically work, so that we can better understand the community’s desires for such a feature. Simple vs. Complex We've already put a fair amount of thought into collaborations, but don't want to make assumptions about around how deviants would use the feature to best serve their

Introducing griffsnuff

:icongriffsnuff:

My name is Tina, and I am a bubbly happy artist from Norway who enjoy sharing and learning more about art. I have been drawing my whole life and it is probably thanks to my mom that I kept on drawing. She has always been my biggest supporter and encouraged me to keep drawing.

I joined DeviantArt in 2005, and that is also were I have met my best friends, learned most about myself and my art. Meeting new people from so many different parts of the world and with so many ideas, is really inspiring to me and has made me work and try a lot of different things through my years, I also worked as a concept artist on Among the sleep and that taught me a lot about design which is my favorite part of art besides colors.

I also would like to say thank you for the enormous support and love I have gotten from this community, your words and ideas have inspired me to do so many things, and being able to create art that gives others joy, is worth every second I spend on here and on the art I make!

It is always a treat to find art work from griffsnuff appear in my feed. If you take a peek at her gallery, her artwork is colorful, clean, and also fun in nature. It is inspiring to see how much she has grown from her works in 2005 until now and her tutorial folder is well organized. From experience, I know that tutorials can take ages to create and the fact that she has more than a handful available as free resources is fantastic and shows her willingness to share her knowledge. Some are quite comical too! Thank you for being an inspirational role model to many on DeviantArt and also for being part of this community, griffsnuff! You deserve this.

I am inspired whenever I explore griffsnuff's gallery. It always excites me to see her drawings pop up in my DeviantArt feed, with their beautiful designs, vibrant palettes, and whimsical character designs. In addition to being a wonderfully talented artist, griffsnuff is a down to Earth friendly person who consistently reaches out to the community with fun journals, polls, and events. Her amazing passion for her craft is a big motivation for me and I'm sure for many others in the community. Congratulations, griff!

griffsnuff is one of the most inspiring artists around DeviantArt!!! Love From the color palettes, the lovely expressions of the characters, everything griffsnuff creates is pure joy to the eye!!! I'm very happy to see this award bestowed on griffsnuff, this friendly, amazing artist who selflessly provides sweet little chibi linearts for the entire community to enjoy and color!!! Deviousness is an even sweeter concept today, thanks to griffsnuff !!! Congratulations my friend!!!

griffsnuff definitely has some weight to her name. She's been at the front of the market for commissions for as long as she's been in my watch list. I often see updates from her in my message center and get super curious about what she has to offer and what she's provided recently. Her artwork is simply astounding, and on top of that, she's super friendly and approachable. She always seems pretty eager to answer questions or lend a hand when someone needs real advice from someone who knows what they're doing, and it's pretty hard to find that in serious artists nowadays. She is truly a gem. 

Starlord, I mean griffsnuff, is among my favorite artists. I enjoy her art, from the silliest critter to the full detailed pieces; it is fun and can brighten a moody day. I admire her for doing what she likes instead on just focusing on making serious realistic art. griffsnuff is not only skilled; she also makes time to interact with her watchers, making her stand out from many popular artists. I am inspired by her and her work. griffsnuff is a teacher too! I've learned many things from her live art streams and tutorials. From her, I've learned tips and tricks about art, animation and even webpage coding. I appreciate all those things and I believe that griffsnuff is a key member for the DeviantArt community and fully deserves the Deviousness Award!

I came across the art of griffsnuff while searching for a whimsical style, and I just love the way she uses shapes, color and subject matters. The consistency in her gallery is also something that made me watch her, she has a definitive style that I really enjoy!

griffsnuff has come a long way in the years I have known her. Her creatures are super cute and well designed. She's very active in the DA community, and her posts are usually quite funny. She totally deserves the Deviousness award! Congratulations!


Congratulations to griffsnuff!

griffsnuff is a fantastic artist and knows the ins and outs of art for sure
but (brace yourself opinion time) the way they respond to people who have politely pointed out issues with their attitude/the content they sometimes post is plaincringeworthy. not gonna divulge in detail because this is obviously not the time or place. but ive witnessed it often as an outside observer.

honest congrats griffsnuff, i hope that this award not only inspires you to continue producing lovely art, but also to grow and learn how to be a truly understanding and mature person
