Daily Deviations



Honored 2 Have Gotten DD Stamp by Mirz123


Daily Deviations are awarded by community volunteers to exceptional artwork. I am honoured to have received four of these features to date.

You can suggest something for a Daily Deviation by sending a thumb to the CV in charge of the gallery it has been posted in. To see who is responsible for each gallery click here. A deviant can only get one DD in any six month period, and some CV's have additional criteria so check out their profiles before you suggest!

Pay it Forward Corner






:iconday-brighteners:

dAy-Brighteners was created to improve (brighten) other Deviants' days, through means of a kind comment, a few sentences, or some words on his/her artwork.

:bulletblack: Try to aim for at least five a day!
:bulletblack: The comments can be on friends, family, or a total stranger. :tighthug:
:bulletblack: If you're pressed for time, try asking how others' days are. Even in a Favorite response comment: 'Thank you for the Favorite! How is your day?'





:icondacompliments:


The DeviantART Compliments project focuses on spreading support and positivity
by encouraging deviants to send in a compliment to another member
or a group in the community.

Compliments are currently being published every Wednesday and Saturday,
so add us to your watch list to stay updated!





:icondawishingwell:


dAWishingWell is a group specifically created to give back to the dA community by featuring and granting dA-related wishes such as premium subs, supergroup status, giving items off of wishlists, point donations, features, DD requests, and more!





:iconrecommendafriend:


The Recommend a Friend project was created in order to expose the work of deviants that are recommend by their friends. The friend also includes a tidbit about why we should check out their recommended deviant's gallery. The friends that recommend also get featured monthly!

Basically, features for ALL!

Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

A Daily Deviation is a daily staff feature selected from the galleries here on deviantART.

The selecting person may be a Community Volunteer or a Staff member. To see which Community Volunteer specialises in which gallery click here

A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by this select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large. 

Individual staff/volunteers may show different levels of activity which may lead to certain genres or types of artwork to be chosen more often than others. If you believe that a certain type of artwork is being overlooked or under-represented please feel free to offer suggestions by noting $Moonbeam13. NOTE: Anyone can suggest a daily deviation and self-suggesting is not only allowed, but encouraged.

Guidelines


Bullet; Blue There is a "6-month rule" which means an artist cannot receive another DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.

Bullet; Blue Daily Deviation selectors are limited to a maximum of one selection per day. This has been put in place to focus on quality vs quantity. 

Bullet; Blue If there is no one assigned to an area you want to suggest a DD to, please note $Moonbeam13 with your DD suggestion.

Bullet; Blue Please only suggest to only ONE person, do not send the same suggestion to multiple people - it causes great confusion - Thank you!</ol>

The Literature CVs:


:bulletblack: neurotype -- DDs: I Do That Now

:bulletgreen: GrimFace242 -- A New Hat To Go With My Old Dress

:bulletpink: IrrevocableFate -- DD Suggestion Guidelines

:bulletblue: ShadowedAcolyte -- DD Suggestion Guidelines

S.M.I.L.E!

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 27, 2014, 8:19 PM




Tagged By: TheBakerandWriter
Tagging rules: 


1. Complete all the questions or alter them to make it your own!
2. Please link back to the S.M.I.L.E. event or at least mention it in your journal's title. 
3. Tag as many people as you'd like to fill out these questions! (The more the merrier)
4. Have fun or else! Or else! :D (Big Grin)
5. Repost these rules in your journal. Or else! Heart

Questions:

1.) How do you feel about your DeviantART community?
The Lit community is close-knit, kind, and ALWAYS willing to lend other artists a listening ear and whatever help they can.  There are so many important, influential, wonderful deviants in the Lit community who keep me inspired and challenge me to always be better. I honestly think that the literature community strives, every single day, to show up with their pants on and make a difference--even small ones, like features or comments or just showing someone support through suggesting a piece for DD or DLR means a great deal.  

2.) What was/is your favorite experience here on DA?
Collaborating with others, definitely!  I LOVE the different voices, styles, and imagery you can find in other people's work, and trying to mesh your own writing with theirs--it's a challenge, but if you work together and are open to trying new things, you can make beautiful things that speak to and enthrall others.  

3.) Is there anyone you admire in the community?
Oh, for sure!  Let's see...
chromeantennae is absolutely wonderful; Ricky is always going out there with his big heart and kind words, lending a hand and supporting the rest of the Lit community as best he can.  Also, he's just a great guy to talk to.

SilverInkblot is ALWAYS coming up with fresh, new spins on poetry and poetry forms.  Her color poems took dA by storm a few years ago, and recently she founded TheTitlePage for another of her forms, using only the titles of other deviant's works to create new and interesting poetry.

BloodshotInk, though focusing on college and school work (GOOD FOR YOU, HON!), was one of the FIRST deviants who made me want to give back.  She is SO supportive, SO wonderful to others--she really makes you feel important (which you ARE!).

IrrevocableFate, LiliWrites, GrimFace242, Beccalicious, PinkyMcCoversong, neurotype, thorns and LadyLincoln also get a shout-out here--they're all wonderful artists and AMAZING people, so if you don't know of them or their contributions to the lit community (which are honestly too numerous to name out one by one!) you should definitely head over to their pages and take a look around.

Also, I HAVE to mention ALL of the staff over at the following wonderful groups: dACompliments, dAWishingWell, RecommendAFriend, ProjectComment, dAy-Brighteners, BurdenedHearts, and LitRecognition --you all put your hearts and souls into helping keep positive outlooks alive and bringing people together.  THANK YOU ALL!

4.) What do you admire in your own work on this website?
I think... How much being in this community, and interacting with/reading the words of others, has shaped me in my own work.  Without the lit community, I don't think I'd have come as far in recent years as I have.  You're all so wonderful and inspiring, and you've done a LOT to help push me out of my comfort zone and stretch my writing boundaries.  I thank every one of you for it--keep being wonderful. :heart:

5.) Quick! If you could give anyone here on DeviantART a big squishy hug, who would it be?
EVERYONE ON MY :+devwatch: list!  No really, I'm not kidding--there are a lot of you, but you are all beautiful and unique and I just want to :iconpirateglompplz: you!

6.)  What are five of your favorite pieces of work form different artists and why do you like them?
seastormI,
a wreck-
age wearing
at the sea(m)s
of tidal vacancy;
I am the ocean, and
the moon has
forsaken me.
to
cling to reason,
I stumbled on
absence stagnant,
abrupt. bedridden yet
ever chas(m)ing, I  
fell to salt-soaked
ground from a
don’t-leave
precipice.
three
words were all it took
but all you do is take.
I am waking
and I am shaken
tsunami waves that break
in empty frantic fury;
you are
gone
for
the briefest repose
or instant of stillness,
I yearn; instead
I am abandoned by language,
I am bound to languish beneath
mountainous (n)ever-rest
tempests that swell,
that quell
even the most desperate of breaks
for the shore.
--The word play, the imagery, the pacing and format all come together to breathe life into this beautiful piece.
Plus SizeI.
I don't worry so much
about what size dresses I wear,
how many chins I have
or how many pounds I weigh.
I'm not all that bothered
if I don't really match
the airbrushed and edited standard of beauty
the media sells as the modern ideal.
I don't beat myself up
for eating the odd slice of cake,
tucking into a cookie
or savouring my favourite snacks.
Life's too short for all of that.
What scares me is the size of my heart.
II.
Sometimes, my heart feels so big
I don't know if I'll ever fill it -
if there'll ever be a love
or a desire
or a dream big enough
to stop the pangs,
the cravings
and the feelings of emptiness.
Then again, at other times,
my heart feels so heavy
it almost weighs me down:
it stores sad thoughts
and negative reflections
of all the horrors in the world
and feels solid, like a stone
sinking within my chest.
Maybe my heart is a little too big.
III.
Perhaps I could try a special diet -
like the “I Don't Give a Damn” Plan,
“Care Less
--Take a moment to think--REALLY THINK--about the message here. You're beautiful. You're unique. You're you, and that's ALL that matters.
as you teach her to say yesthe demons of your daughter
are of your own creation.
as your face stretches
into a grin of grotesque
conditioning and you say,
absolutely unthinking,
to her five-year-old
tear-stained face,
"he only hits you
because he likes you."
as too quickly for you
she sprouts breasts
and when her tender torso
twists in sunlight
you tell her that she
cannot go outside
wearing that, you teach
her through holding your
hand over your mouth,
knuckles underneath your nose,
the meaning of that empty
antiquated word ladylike.
she looks pasty and listless
five days of the month
but you do not teach her
how to properly insert
a tampon, she knows how
to suck guys off but she
doesn't know what the fuck
to do with her own clitoris.
her mind is captured by the
television as it tells her
that it is good to wear
skirts above mid-thigh
and make men happy by pulling
them onto a mattress but then
she says no when she's not allowed
and suddenly she is blamed by
that same force that shaped her
and an attorney
--This.  It doesn't even need words.
Life by Kyla-Nichole--Look CLOSELY; there's more to this art than meets the eye at first glance.
Night dreaming by areot--Because painting ALONE takes mad skills; doing it on a FEATHER?! Outrageously awesome.

7.) Do you have any aspirations from being here on DeviantART?
I just...I want to continue living my life in a positive, caring way. I want to continue giving back to others, because people are wonderful but can't always give themselves what they need most.

8.) Who was the last person or animal you hugged?
My husband, of course! 

9.) How often do you leave comments/critiques?
Not as often as I used to. I'm TRYING to get back into the swing of doing that--though critiques I usually only ever give when people ask me for them specifically, as you don't always know for sure who is looking for them or is receptive to criticism. 

10.)  What color shirt are you wearing right now?
Blue/green/yellow tye-dye type. :)

11.) How many people do you know on DA and in real everyday life?
Uhm. A total of....three. One the husband and I went and met when we were in college (here's looking at you, darkanddefiant!); the husband, obviously; and a guy who hardly ever logs in that I know from high school.

12.) What makes you happy?
Seeing other people happy. Honestly, that's the ONE sure thing to making me happy--is letting me make YOU happy. So tell me...what can I do for you today? :heart:

13.) What does a smile mean to you?
Hard work well-done.  Positive outlooks, courage, a sense of confidence and love of yourself.  Honestly, guys, I wasn't lying when I said you're all beautiful--you ARE.  Don't ever let anyone tell you differently.

Create:
Create your own questions! Maybe you want to tag a special someone and you want to ask them an embarrassing questions to make their cheeks go all red. (How long was it since you washed your underwear? LOL) Maybe you just want to ask someone about who they are, what they prefer or you just want to ask them another question for the sake of asking another question! Create what you like and there is no limit. As long as the journal produces a smile, it can be altered as you choose. 

My Questions:
1. There is almost a sense of disconnect between the WRITTEN world on dA and the VISUAL one--if you could employ ONE idea to bring those two worlds closer together, what would you do?
2. What is the last thing that made YOU smile? What is the last thing you did to send a smile to someone else?
3. What can we do, as a community/site, to bring MORE smiles/happiness to other users?
4. What is/are your favorite things about the dA community you're most connected to?  What is/are your favorite things about the people of that community?
5. Who are some of the most influential/inspiring people of your community?  Why?
6. Are there any community projects and/or groups that have helped you or given you a chance to help others?
7. What are your future dA aspirations/goals/dreams?
8. Have you suggested a piece of writing or artwork for a DD recently? What about a DLR?  If you haven't, are there any reasons for that?
9. Somebody's having a bad day and posts about it in a journal/poll; what do you do to cheer them up?
10. Share a joke with us? (pleasepleasePLEASE make it family friendly!)
11. What types of food/drink always bring you a smile? Why? What about scents or sounds?
12. Have you ever created a piece of art for another deviant (outside of commissions)?  If so, how did doing that make you feel?
13. A lot of deviants, particularly in the lit community, talk about how important it is to give INTO the community what you'd like to get OUT of it--do you agree? Why or why not?
14. Last question--what are some of your favorite and most-used emotes on dA?

I TAG ANY/EVERYONE who sees this and wants to do it.  This was a TON of fun! :iconheartglompplz:
