DD Suggestion Guidelines

Tue Dec 1, 2015, 10:41 AM by TsaoShin:icontsaoshin:

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.

Bullet; Red FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
Bullet; Red FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

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 have a question if you don't mind.

I've recently commissioned a very stunning piece from an artist, and they've given me permission to upload it into my gallery.
Hiccup and Toothless VS Doctor Doom by Haddock-House
I would like to suggest this as a daily deviation, since the artist is very talented and deserves the recognition for their hard work and how well they put this piece together. I was just unsure if I was allowed to suggest it, because it's in my own gallery when I did not draw it.
Would it be alright to still suggest it to you, with the artist's personal site and account being in the description?

Hey there!  It's a great piece but unfortunately it needs to reside in the gallery of the author/creator in order for me to give it a DD.  It's great that you want to share the work though!  I'd recommend creating an artwork feature!

Hi, I'd like to ask a question. I want to suggest one of my deviations but before doing so, I want to make sure I do it right.

Romantic Sunset by officialmaria

This is a fanart I made but it's also animated. So my question is, is it ok if I send you the note with the suggestion or should I go to the CVs for film and animation? Problem is, if I go to film and animation I'm not sure if they'll accept my deviation since it's not original art, it's fanart, it contains characters from an anime.

So I'm not sure to which CV to suggest since my deviation fits in 2 categories, it's fanart but also animation.
I don't want to send the note without making sure I follow the rules so if you could tell me whom I should send the note, I'd really appreciate. Thank you in advance.

What if I have already send a suggestion to an CV, but the persone hasn´t read the note in the last two months. Can I send a suggestion with the same picture to an other CV?

TsaoShin Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
The suggestion still needs to go to the appropriate CV since we can't feature things outside of our category.  If there's two CVs handling the same category you can try sending it to the other one :>

Hey,

I was just looking through the CR related stuff since one of the CVs just left and saw that it's almost a year since you joined the team. Will you be staying or are you going to step down when November comes? :( I hope not! You've done so well! 

More suggestions coming soon! Been so busy, I haven't had a chance!
