Another year is over and it's time for my annual art feature of works submitted in 2008! This is both my favorite and the most difficult art feature to make. After going through thousands and thousands of works you can imagine how hard it was to pick just some.
Artworks were chosen by different combinations of the following "criteria": general impression • emotion conveying • meaning of the artwork • pure awesomeness • idea/concept • originality • complexity • technique • quality • subject • incredible realism • great style • everything else I forgot to write
Sorry for taking so long to say, but thank you so much for featuring my art among all these wonderful drawings! Many of the ones you picked are my own favourites too, and I'm honored to have a drawing listed among them. Thank you!
Wow thank you so much for featuring my work! It is such an honor to be shown next to so many amazing works created by amazing artists. This is a very cool feature and you should be proud of putting together such an amazing display of art. Keep up the amazing work!!
You're welcome! And thank you for joining my group!
Well,somebody rejected the article.I guess mentioning that the people who don't like selected works simple don't fave it was for nothing or maybe the person was just jealous,or it was somebody who doesn't like me
I have no idea what goes through some people's minds. The artworks you selected were such amazing quality, surely that should override any bias someone may have against the subjects (or maybe realism, or fanart, or whatever).
YES. I was so glad you sent that invite again, since I saw that the last one expired. I've been inactive on dA for a few days, because my brother's home from uni and he's been hogging the computer. 8D
I avoided joining clubs on dA for a long time, until the groups feature was added. I'm pleased to see your rules/guidelines have high standards. I find that very attractive. I'm going to try my best to be useful to the group. (I should probably submit something. And I'll definitely advertise it in my next journal entry.) Thank you for the invitation.
I was member of some clubs but didn't send my submissions very often.The thing that bothered me about the clubs was that most of the clubs I joined were inactive most of the time for X reason.For example there was this contest that was held by one of the clubs I was member of.I sent my entry,the voting started,I was going to win 1st or 2nd place but the announcement never came.All of a sudden the club became dead.No activity,not journals of explanation,nothing!
I really like this groups system.Easy to submit,no problems with accidentally faving the club's submission and not the original work,everything goes so nice and smooth. Now I'm member of many groups,my artworks gets more recognition than when I sent my submissions to various clubs etc.
About my rules...Well,I guess not everything will be /it is like I expected.Of course that the rule about no copyrighted material stands but but the rules about just the best works etc. not so much.Sometimes I accept some submissions because I don't want to disappoint but most of the time some works end up in gallery without my voting since 3 of the contributors voted before me. For good artworks I generally have high standards but if I was so strict about how good the submissions should look we wouldn't have much works in the gallery (not that we have many yet)
Yeah,you're definitely should submit something! You can submit 2 per day since we are not very group yet so we are not backlogged with submissions .
I REALLY look forward to seeing your next drawing,especially if it's going to be Supernatural related! You and =Cataclysm-X are guilty for getting me so addicted to this fantastic TV show! I can't wait to see the new episodes!
(this looong comment was much more suitable for a note or something than for a news article comment )
*Giggles* Thats true, I stubbled apon his, and thought "Oh my word, theres good, fantastic, and perfection... this is the defination of perfection." He just puts things in perspective. I've never thought I was good, but now I am like a glow worm to the sun! LOL
Omg thanks so much for being putting two of my works in here! I feel so honour, because the other works are really brilliant! Of course I knew already some, but not all, and these are some really in incredible works! Wow, thanks so much Sweety
