I did this quite some tome back. Now that so many people have popped up around the web with better art than I and way too few watchers, it's time again for the suggest and artist
Read below for rules. owo
REMEMBER, suggest people who are talented beyond their level of current recognition. Not just your friends because you are friends with them. Be honest, and see if they have put in the years and effort to get better! It may seem a bit harsh if I don't add your friends, and it might seem unfair when I pick others instead of others, but please try to not be hurt! I want to spread some happiness in artists that feel under-appreciated for their work, not put down artist who also work hard but are still in the works. Please understand,. ;w;
HOW I CHOOSE FEATURES
First of all, there has to be at least 3 good quality deviations in their gallery. Uncolored linearts and backgroundless pictures usually turn my head from it, but if their efforts shine through that, i'll accept those. I have no time to read stories, unfortunately. Lineart skills and coloring skills separated also deter me. If the artist makes it work somehow, they're added. If they only have two, I have to move on.
Number of watchers and pageviews are also very important. The goal of this feature is to promote more unknown artists that deserve it, not promote artists that already have the attention they worked for.Yes, they're talented, but this feature isn't for them.
I choose the three deviations that not only show their best work, but I also try and show off their different skill sets. They might have 20 amazing lineless deviations, but if they have something that also strikes my eye that's a little different than what they normally do, i'll try and show off that as well.
Yes, I will sometimes make exceptions, but keep in mind this feature isn't a test on skills or talent. If you don't make it, don't feel bad. For a lot of them, a year or two ago they might have sat in the same spot you sat in. You'll improve, and you will get more watchers. . . just don't get obsessed with getting them. That is bad, and really what the crave for fame does to you.
This on may be full, but there will be more features, so don't worry! If anyone has a problem with the pictures I used, just note me with a replacement and I will fix it~
I'll probably do multiple ones like last time, but please don't overwhelm me too bad. >w<;;
