Hello! I'm pleased to be your Fan Art Community Volunteer! Please feel free to send me a note with DD suggestions for the Fan Art gallery!

What is a Daily Deviation?

The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on DeviantArt.

An assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff and volunteer members who wish to showcase artwork they have found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.

How to send me a suggestion

  • I can only feature deviations that are part of the Fan Art gallery.  If you want to suggest DDs from any other gallery check this list to find out which Community Volunteer you should suggest it to.
  • Send me a note titled "DD Suggestion".
  • I prefer thumbnails!  Copy the thumb code from the deviation page that looks like this :thumb0000000: and paste it in the note.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't received a DD in the last six months.
    FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • The deviant needs to be active!  Make sure they have been active within the last 30 days.
  • Self-suggestions are encouraged! Be proud of your work :) (Smile)
  • I can only feature one DD a day which means I can't pick every suggestion (and especially not right away)! Don't get discouraged if I didn't select yours and always feel free to send me another.
  • Send your suggestions to only one Community Volunteer!

How I select Daily Deviations

When selecting a Daily Deviation, I'm looking for a few things:
  • The deviant is an active member of the community.  They are engaging people through their artwork, comments, and favorites.  I need to see activity within the last 30 days.
  • I would prefer to select deviations that were made within the last year.
  • While I love to be able to shine a spotlight on lesser known members or deviations, that won't stop me from featuring a piece that is all ready popular. 
  • Since Fan Art is a big category that spans so many different interests, I like deviations that can get people excited for a particular fandom but it's also accessible to people outside of it.
  • The deviation represents a polished finished piece.  Technical skill is important to me but I also recognize style, emotion, message, and originality as factors when I select a feature.

Hey Eric.
I'd Like To Suggest My Jurrasic World Evolution (It Was A Discord Contest Entry But Who Cares.) Fanart For A DD.
Here It Is:
Indominus Rex [CONTEST ENTRY] by AlfaArtz  

By The Way: I Tried To Make Indo Look More Good-Looking Because It's How It Would Probably See The World Around, Pitiful And Weak. Thats Why The Backround Is Kinda Badly Drawn.
Sorry For Not Just Sending It Trough Notes, But It's Kinda Easier For Me To Just Post In The Comments. Thank You In Advance.
