Ok so deviantArt is starting to look more like a myspace instead of a place for art. But I read in a news article from one of the admins that they were gonna try to raise the bar by starting of with selecting better DD's and gaining more professional attention.

Then I see this winnig a DD today: http://shebid.deviantart.com/art/McCreepy-the-Frog-107994234

Please someone tell me that isnt true.. hahaha its bad tongue.gif

Nah, com'on, not a bottom floor, just ground floor, there still more... undergrounds floor to reach.

But this time they put their feet on the down staircase.

DeviantArt is the place to meet people and have fun, I sure you know that Akajork, to our professional job, we have cgsociety.org, conceptart.org, mattepainting.org to live on.

(but actually, sometimes I use Deviant Art as a place to have public review for my works, if a design is accepted by both professional and public side, it's good)

That is the basement if I am correct.
It is a place to have fun, yet it is supposed to be based on art and the decisions and projection of the site should always be for the art, this is a mocking for all the hundreds of thousands of artists in there that try and effort themselves into creating something special; yet the site admin seems to think of this as a joke, and they always hide behind "oh DD's are just what an admin likes; its not a prize" So in any way if this is what a gallery director likes we are fucked.

yea I mean I thought a DD had somekind of status you know.. that it should be for quality and concept. Now the idea behind her picture is alright but its been done before and its nothing new. So I think its a shame for deviantArt to give suchs a work a DD..

I think the DD selections suck becuase most GMs suck (except for archann for example).. They dont have a good view of good art and thus feature a lot that everyone can make which is sad..

I got once told if you have a DD with over 500 favs then its a good DD.. If you dont have that then well its a bad DD..

Dont think the favs are indication of anything; the froggy was well on its way to get over 500 favs
@ Warp. Did I say I knew every piece of art by hart?

What I was trying to imply is that I thought you're judgement was a bit too soon. everyone makes mistakes and there IS a report button. You can't expect anyone to always spot a rip.

In the most recent case I have in mind I reported every single piece on the rippers page for almost a month; they ignored me and then gave him a DD tongue.gif

They never accept they have done something wrong. People didnt know it was a test, and it didnt deserve a dd, so they stated that was the case, how does that make them "failed deviants", unless of course criticism is banned biggrin.gif

@ tidal: Their Criticisms were outright harassment and people should be able to control their 'anger' in a comment.

It was a lame joke by those lame moderators they have on DA.

Almost all the mods are volunteers and thus failed artists who have too much free time on their hands. Of course you have some moderators who actually know what they're doing but they don't go for the spotlights.

I needed that rant tongue.gif

I know, some DD's make me whitey.

like for me: http://frwebproject.deviantart.com/art/love-music-99310737 why would that get made a DD. It may be consdered a nice piece of art, but in the exact same catagory i can see so many better candidates.



On another note, what idiot suggested this piece?
