The F Works

Welcome to the 8th in the series of The F Word. Recently I asked my watchers in a poll about their one favourite work by an artist in deviantART, with a reason as to why they chose it, even if it wasn't mandatory. I also have a few more wonderful works to feature as well along with some other information around dA including contests!
Enjoy :heart:

Pola-444 suggested :

The ShoeboxI got a brand new heart today
it's nice and shiny too...
I'm gonna leave the wrapper on
till I find the one girl who
I'd like to share my new heart with...
Oh look! That spot is blue!
My new heart has accessories...
love, joy, hope, and trust.
I better read the instructions,
I don't want the thing to bust.
"Warning: Please read before you open"
HA! It's not from toys 'r us.
The Use and Care section tells me
to "Give it plenty sun"
"Don't over water your new heart,
tears make the colors run."
"Be careful who you share it with,
your new heart's yield is: 1"
"For best results use every day"
That shouldn't be too hard.
"There is a risk of burning when
you turn on your new heart."
"Don't leave it out there for too long,
or it will grow cold and hard."
So I met this girl on campus who
likes the sun, yellow, and flowers...
I got to thinking, "This could work"
And bought her some sun flowers.
I lent her my heart, and then we played
for days that seemed like hours.
But in the end, we were just

So here are some of my favourites. Simply put, these are some of the amazing works I have seen, whether for their simplistic or humorous nature, sheer skills or some unexplainable motif :faint:

Hopefully, there is palatable work for everyone from some extensive categories!

Give love to these excellent deviations. Every single piece deserves exposure and shows effort, skills and talent!
Enjoy :heart:

I love how the first three or four explanations are "Blah blah blah AMAZING."
phoenixleo's avatar
Anyone is free to include whatever they want to. :P
PixLs-Ink's avatar
I know.
But not much of an explanation.

"I like this because it's cool, and stuff."
phoenixleo's avatar
:shrug: One doesn't have to go in depth of why they liked something always I guess.
PixLs-Ink's avatar
For something like this, yeah, they kinda do.

Thats like people getting DDs for "I like the colors, and it's cool."
Sure, you can like something for those reasons, but it doesnt hold a grain of knowledge or consideration.
phoenixleo's avatar
Waving the "I like the colors, and it's cool." will hardly make GMs give something a DD unless they want to. If it's all for the colours sure why not :shrug: It can be any reason (which isn't mandatory in the first place) and doesn't hold to giving solid evidence with references or peer reviewed journals on why they think they like it :shrug:
PixLs-Ink's avatar
Oh, but it is possible. And thats sad.

Im not saying that some people HAVE to explain why they like something. Im saying for stuff like this or DD SHOULD have an explanation.
Other than "It's cool."
Theres a reason why art teachers (or at least, MY teachers) ask you to speak on pieces.
phoenixleo's avatar
Fair point. :nod: Although I am not sure I have seen any DD with "It's cool" but more along the line of it's awesome, and some literally find it hard to explain say how an art teacher would point tell why someone likes something, or even a writer's craft teacher. An art teacher's help is something many would lack here I guess. :shrug:
