TOP 50 Deviants of 2008

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 10, 2008, 6:12 PM
Mommy's DD's by ChaoticGoddess
Just a quick blurb to explain what the ODDs are about so folks understand. I am featuring your artwork for many reasons - the most obvious one being that I like it or I find it inspiring. There are tons of things I can post here to explain why I do what I do on dA - but I think most of you already know why. I love art. And I love this site. If folks hate dA - or administrators - or features - please keep it to yourself and just politely ask that your images be removed if I have featured them in a way you don't appreciate or approve of.

After many many weeks - I have finally come back to my ODD page to pay tribute to my top 50 deviant artists of 2008. Some are old timers - some are noobs - all are wonderful :heart: Please visit their galleries and tell them how awesome it is to have them on dA! :clap:

**PLEASE NOTE - these deviants are chosen by me for various reasons and ONLY to tell them I love them and they're wonderful/talented etc etc - this particular year contains many senior members and a few staff/volunteers - I don't want to hear ANY complaints. Anyone complaining about not being on this list will be ignored and/or beaten in the head with some festive turkey bits! thanks in advance for being happy and supportive deviants! :D xoxo***

NOW Then - these are in no specific order. I will be doing the BEST OF THE BEST lists in the next few weeks - this means I will be choosing short fav lists of each genre and features of those artists. That way - no genre feels left out - my BEST OF THE BEST often features artists that are NOT on my top 50 list - so feel free to make any suggestions for specific genres (ie digital art paintings, fractals, trad art etc) ;) Thanks for all the inspiration folks! I love ya to pieces - but you all know this already :blowkiss:!
:heart:
xoxo

You have some amazing artists on this list that I've known for a long time, and some new ones that I am going to have to look up! Thanks for including me, I'm so excited! I always find it funny to see the stocks that people chose to feature. It shows me that ones that I don't think are the greatest touch other people!

this is the exact same feeling I get with my wallpaper "Fruitcake" that got the DD. It took VERY little time to create - but everyone went crazy. And the works that I stress over for months - get very little attention at all ;)!

damn that "less is more" theory :shakefist:!

Very well chosen features and I've got new watches now :dance: many thanks..and looking forward to your next features. The only suggestion I can possibly think of is to seperate the 3D catergory (modellers and content manipulators i.e. Poser/DazStudio users) if you can catch my drift. That way neither gets left out... :hug:

I did read the last paragraph but so many people lump the two divisions of 3D in one category so I didn't know if you knew that there was an "invisible" division :D Thanks for noticing!! I probably should have kept my mouth shut as usual but I was a little bit concerned...sorry! :hug:

:rofl: oh gosh no - I appreciate input - I always do the 3D art seperate from other works because I have so many devpals in that particular genre ;) they're all on their own LOL.

I am still putting it together (the seperate lists) so you can let me know what you think (or note me if you want to suggest somebody who deserves some attention ;))!
