Personal XDD by auxeru

Inspired by the stamp above, several months ago, I conducted a poll and asked my visitors and watchers to pick a piece in their gallery they would be most proud of to have featured as a Daily Deviation.   Below are the deviations picked.  Note that several deviants felt their galleries did not have a piece worthy enough of a Daily Deviation.  For them, I chose one of my favorites from their submissions.

Friend,
I promise to be there –
In the good, I will share;
In the bad, I will despair.
But remember this:
I will always be true –
This I will not rue;
And to always be there –
This I do swear.
Hunted by ClefairyKid :thumb216846049: :thumb147491693: Creamed MiseryWelcome to the final darkness. I'm the oldest in our miserable cave. I've seen five generations come and go; chosen one or two at a time by the hands of the gods.  Soon after they are pulled away, we can hear a sharp grinding sound; screams ignored by those giant beasts.  We never know when it will happen, but it always does.  Some come here laughing, thinking it's paradise.  Those ones should be labeled canned morons!  I've been ready for my turn long ago, but it never comes.  Do the gods hate me?  Why do the gods resent creamed corn?!

The dad who was never home,
the mother, always drunk,
the hooligan brother,
the slut of a sister.
None of them are ever around anyway.
When I walk to school
I'm beat up by the other kids.
My teacher asks me about the bruises on my arms,
and I lie, like my older brother taught me too,
at least, when he still cared about me.
Now I'm all alone,
there's food in the fridge, sure,
there's games to play, as long as I'm fine playing alone,
but there's always something missing,
something the other kids at school have maybe?
When I'm old enough,
when I understand more,
that's when I realize
that I've always been alone.
The other kids at school don't care,
they just look the other way
and go about their day.
I don't mean a thing to them,
and them not a thing to me.
The family, I've already said,
was never around
so why should I think they give a shit?
I barely remembered them,
no, not a thing.
So that car that hit me,
it was really a blessing.
I brought it on myself,
stepping out in the road like
   Paper Planes
Everyday...
Everyday...ever since I saw that boy where my brother worked...
Everyday... I snuck out of the hospital, avoiding the nurses and avoiding my father.
Everyday... I snuck out...to see his face...
To read his thoughts...
To see our paper planes...


~ Chapter 1 - Sunshine ~
...
"Mother in heaven... I am so sorry for once again disobeying dad... but...mom... if this is it for me... if I can't get out of this hospital alive, then please... please... forgive me and let me see him... one last time..."
I silently pleaded to my mother as I furiously ran past the nurse's head desk, avoiding curious gazes. Tears streamed heavily down my face. Every step and every stride brought pain shooting through my veins... but I don't care. I need to see him...
If this was the last moment of my life...
...My only wish before I go, is to see him.
I bursted through the hospital doors, my pace significantly weakening. My heart was painfully banging against my chest,

:thumb217291311: Unrequited Love          I'm next to her, a smile pasted on my face. She goes off about her day, the sound of her voice melding into the background as I gaze up at the big screen. Every once in a while she asks a question and I feel forced to answer, her eyes on me. She does not notice a thing and starts droning on again. The lights begin to fade and she finally quiets down. I look up at the screen, my heart racing.
I must remain focused.
          Now I'm sitting in the passenger seat, listening to her complain about the same old thing. I force a laugh and offer hollow sentiments. She blasts the music and soon we're singing along to the song together. For the smallest of moments I feel elated and full of wonder, but it soon fades when we pull into my driveway. I wave goodbye as she drives away, my eyes secretly pleading to her.
I must remain calm.
      
:thumb208707929: Empty skies"Doesn't it look empty to you?"
What do you mean, little girl? It never looks empty, because in an expanse of sky there can be clouds and rain storms and blue turning to green at the edges. It's a diaphanous green, an almost-there-but-not-really green, and it melts into the ground sometimes. The change in colour has something to do with the atmosphere, I think. There are too many gases in the air and that causes the world to look larger.
And yet here you are, little girl, and you're telling me it looks empty. You're asking me whether I agree. And how can something so full of rockets and stars and a million suns be empty? Well, maybe not completely full of them. But something needs empty space in order to look pretty. Negative space, if you ask the artist.
Why don't you ask the artist, little girl? I'm sure he knows much more of emptiness than a lonely stargazer with a telescope and a cloudy sky. I mean, it does kind of have that charcoal-like quality to it when it's night time and ther

You actually CAN suggest yourself for one. You just need to find out who the CV is for the gallery and then send them a note with a thumb/link to the piece you want to suggest. You can write something about it, but you don't have to.

They have a caetgory for that but they don't care about it, it seems. Hell, you never see any homosexual art on the site unless it's something pretty clean.

I said it before and I'll say it again: dA needs new staff members that aren't bigots or homophobic.

Maybe I am one of the few people who feel I deserve to get one, not to sound conceited but I'm proud of my work, I figure if I can win competitions in school and fly across the country, I deserve to have my work noticed. On some of the other sites I have been featured and even interviewed, but for some reason I feel like this community really doesn't care about originality or the kind of work that I favor. I feel that doodles and fanart get more recognition than say graphic designs or print brochures, etc. I feel very discouraged often because of this, I feel that professional design (or design in general) isn't really cared about. I know so many talented users, who go unnoticed... and then I see some doodle get featured and I just wonder. Not even, but concepts. I see work every day I personally don't feel is worthy of features, but obviously someone likes it. I know everybody has their own taste, and often I find just because someone doesn't like a medium or style, they feel like it's bad or not worthy. I respect that everybody has their own style and tastes, but what I think it comes down to is how confident someone is, and how different their idea is. I see fanartists on here selling fanart and doing all this illegal stuff, and they get away with it because the staff dosn't care. These people are also featured all the time; I think instead of featuring the SAME artists multiple times, look at new ideas, look at someone else who isn't really noticed. Just because someone has say 500 page views and is new DOSN'T mean they don't have incredible work; all of those stats are stupid and pointless. A lot of the people who are featured (the so called "popular people") are also frankly quite rude from my experiance. I used to admire some who started off new to the community, then they became all "high and mighty" and just kind of stopped caring and pushed everyone off, kind of just abdorbing all the compliments and stuff. Never caring. See maybe I'm one of the few people who have a problem with this. Not saying everyone is like this, but... from my personal experience, it is what I find. Then you see a piece of work featured from an unknown artist, who appreciates it, who is overjoyed by the exposure they have. I think they are more worthy.

But what can you do. That is kind of why I started in a different art community dedicated to more professionalism design (my major) and what I am looking for. I think everybody has a piece of work worthy of a feature; and not just that, but the story that goes with the inspiration for it. :) Just some people see all these popular folks getting noticed, and feel kind of unworthy when they shouldn't. Maybe I'm weird for thinking that I am proud of what I do, Im confident and find frankly I don't really care what the popular folks do and what is featured, because I know I am happy with my work and know there are other people out there who feel the same. :)

I think what you are doing is great.

Sorry for such a long response. This just really made me happy to see that there are people out there who care, and want to help but that light and inspiration back into artists everywhere.

DDs are a curious thing, because they really do depend on the taste of the Community Volunteer. I think some galleries it's much harder to get recognized in than others. I do a lot of emotes, and we only have a few hundred artists who post regularly, so the odds of a DD are greater. You go into the traditional gallery where you have 10s of thousands of artists posting daily, it's much harder.

That said, I do know where you are coming from. I've suggested some (what I feel) are amazing pieces, never to have them featured--but I see other stuff I scratch my head at. But, that is the nature of the beast, I suppose. Not everyone is going to have the same taste. A DD is nice, but it is just a feature and a one-day spike. It really doesn't make or break an artist.

Nevertheless, your feelings are s partly why I do this kind of thing periodically through my polls and journals. I think it's nice to give people that exposure. I hope in the future, perhaps you'll comment and I can feature one of your works. :hug:

Thank you for the kind words.

Well you see, if you ask me i can say that i do it for myself. I don't care about any kind of dd or feature. The thing is, art's purpose isn't to receive features, sell, etc. Art mean's more then a business. For me, art and music are my way of feeling good. Firs't it was music. Then, i've started drawing and discovered what it means. If i wanted to do it for money i was allready in a design course. But i'm in a IT course. and why? because i've discovered that art can't be learned. I mean, it has to be done with your heart. Not technically. I'm not saying that i'm the best or something. I even don't want it to be that way. I never used any kind of technical stuff to draw. I just drawed. I don't even know how a construction looks like :))) It's my way of feeling free. I like it. And it will allways be that way.
I use this website to share, socialize and discover new arts...
