I am no longer accepting DD suggestions! :)

If you would like to suggest a daily deviation from the Artisan Craft galleries, please send me a note with a thumb of the deviation and a short description of why you think it should become a DD.
I will get back to you within a few days. Please do keep in mind that I get a lot of suggestions and don't want to plan DDs too long ahead (one or two weeks, max), so there are a not many spots to fill, so please don't be discouraged if your suggestion doesn't make it. Keep them coming! :)

Here are the basic rules to keep in mind:

:bulletpink: Title the note "DD Suggestion", so I immediately know what it's about.

:bulletpink: Include a thumb to the deviation you would like to suggest. (You can copy/paste a thumb by scrolling down the page of the deviation and look in the column to the right for the code that'll look something like this: :thumbXXXXXXXX:.)

:bulletpink: Only suggest one deviant per note!

:bulletpink: Write a short note about why you think this deviation deserves to be featured.

:bulletpink: I DO accept self-suggestions, so if you feel one of your own pieces deserves a DD, show me your best work and tell me why you think it deserves to be featured. (you will NOT be named as the suggester, so no one will know you suggested yourself)

:bulletpink: I only feature DDs from the Artisan Craft galleries. For everything else, please look up the appropriate gallery moderator in this list: FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

:bulletpink: I might choose to give a DD to a deviation other than the one you suggested, but from the same artist. In that case, you will still be mentioned as the suggester.

:bulletpink: I am taking this following write-up from Kitten-of-Woe's journal when she was GM for the AC galleries, my own selection criteria is very similar to hers:
Top consideration goes to deviations with the highest skills, but also design concept, and originality. To a certain extent, the photography is important, but is, of course, only secondary to the craft that is in the photograph. The better the photography is, the better it enhances the craft object and it also helps prevent people from flaming the DD, which shouldn't happen, but it does. But most important are advanced skills, originality, and design concept. So ask yourself if the deviation you're suggesting was made with extraordinary and advanced skills and its design concept has extraordinary artistic vision -- does it really deserve to be on the frontpage and be seen by millions of viewers? If the skills are just so-so and there is no unique artistic vision, then why should it be featured on the frontpage if almost anyone could have done the same?

:bulletpink: Please also keep in mind that I only feature a limited amount of "fanart" (crafts based on popular characters, movies, books, etc.), so original designs are more likely to be featured. However, do send me your suggestions, if I think they are great DD material, I may forward them to the fanart GMs.

I don't like this DD... what do I do?
Inappropiate comments, critiques and insults
