Of course we're talking about my art. Time to reflect what was the best and move on. So, without further ado...
I think I've always went with digital art first and photography second. I don't see why this year should be any different.
I've been mainly drawing smaller pieces that didn't take too long to make. There were only two that took longer than five hours. One was good and the other was meh — though some simple and quick paintings actually turned out decent.
The first 'Most faves' and 'most views' awards go to The Village on the Top of the World
670 views, 53 favs.
I really like it and if I had to pick the thing I'm most proud of in my 2014 digital gallery, this would be the piece. The public seems to agree as the view/fav ratio seems quite healthy.
The second piece worth of mention is The Cottage
I just generally like this one. I like how it turned out.
Third piece that needs a mention is Zver.
For some reason, I seem to fall for stuff that looks like digital watercolor, the dragon isn't entirely awful as far as anatomy goes (as long as we ignore the creature's front left leg - the one with claws visible. That one just doesn't make sense). I probably shouldn't have done the underneck/belly scales, though. With 234 views and 21 favs, the view/fav ratio isn't exactly terrible either.
I've also managed to have one dark and decent piece that actually looks good (unless it's viewed on a monitor with shit gamma issues. Happens a lot on cheap laptops). That was Jama
Note though: It's dark. This piece was also submitted to only one group, so it didn't get much exposure.
My photography has actually become mildly better this year, though I was still mostly taking pictures of bees. That, and family gatherings. I managed to take some decent shots there, though I'm not sharing these on here for obvious reasons.
The second 'most faves' award goes, along to (B)icicle:
53 favs, 355 views. I think I could say this is the most popular piece I've made in 2014 (regardless of the medium). This piece also gets the 'most comments' award (which it got with 8 comments). This piece has also made it to the 'Popular' stream on 500px.
And it's also my favourite photo. Other photos that I also deem better than the rest I've made in 2014 are:
This was a sad year for traditional art.
It seems I uploaded one deviation every 12.5
days. This means I've been less active than in 2013 (one every 9.4 days). Usually on a Tuesday
pieces or 28
% of this year's submissions). In 2013, my favourite uploading day was apparently saturday. I was most active in September (5 uploaded). Like in 2013, my favourite gallery was photography (this time with 14 deviations, one less than year before). My favourite category this year was (digital) paintings/landscapes with 7 pieces.
The rest of statistics:
Comments per deviation: 1.37
Favourites per deviation: 9
Views per deviation: 113
Comments per day: 0.1
Favourites per day: 0.73
Deviation views per day: 9.03
Sorry for not being too entertaining today.
