i got banned for saying "nigger" because it was a rAcIsT statement and when jenni went to go talk to them they said we're not allowed back because there's a zero tolerance policy when there is hate art everywhere.

Good thing no one's forcing anyone to upload there and there are free websites that you can put your own art on, away from the NO CLASS and OMG STUPID RULES.

I guess I'm just more tolerable of nude art since i actually like the pic Beep sent, but I agree DA goes overboard with it.  All I ever see on featured/popular is anime (more specifically, NARUTO), naked women, and a few original things that aren't even that great.  I also hate how they say one DD per deviant, but some people have gotten, like, 4.

But whatever, I just use it to submit my art and take commissions.  I try to avoid all the drama it has to offer.

DD's are not for a display of talent, but for a display of what's most popular. Or so it has become, because quite frankly there's hardly anything that ever catches my interest in the DD page. I think most are well aware of this though.

I'm not sure how you go about suggesting a DD to a staff member, but if you're really so sick and tired of these worthless DD's that it's actually bothering you, it may be a good idea to look into this and find some worthy artists and pieces to suggest. Who knows, you might make a difference.

dA was made for "anime" and not so great boobs
i actually don't have a problem with "good" artistic nudity..

but the picture beep posted is the lulz
nice DD from someone who didn't even render his/her/its own model and claimed that they were "in a rush" and didn't give any goddamn credit LOL




but honestly, if you're extremely irritated by something i suggest just leaving instead of staying and griping about something that obviously won't change :U

There's good art on DA, but like most things the pop culture of DA is complete and utter shit. Head for the underground my friend.

There's always http://conceptart.org/ for srs art and srs artists.

Ah, that site always makes me feel just the right amount of mediocre when I see it.

Also, I hear they hate nagas.

Maybe the day when we all grow vagoos and double F titties and big sparkaly fecking eyes we'll see more originality in the world. No, really. I wonder if people know how hideous anime girls would be in real life.

Sadly, suggesting them doesn't usually help.  I have suggested a number of wonderful pieces, and yet we still only see, as you said, all the things that are most popular, not most "effort" or most "talent," or even DDs for budding artists who are really growing in their styles.  Its sad when you look to the page and its always the same thing.  In the begining it was meant as a way for artists to get their name out there and feel accomplished, now its only another popularity measure like the damn pageviews.

As for the nude picture posted, it doesn't deserve a DD.  Poser is an easy to use program where you pretty much use free items others make, some may do post-work in photoshop, but many just render a character (pretty much use everything made by other people) and just move the limbs around for placement.  I don't think any of the poser items should even be in the days favorites unless they honestly made everything themselves, did postwork and actually made it real art.  I hate seeing some poser headshot.  I used that programn in highschool, it takes little to no skill once you know how to use it.  Many people use it to make their own porn, its pretty sad.

I'm sick of seeing the cult of big-breasted women pictures in the days favorites as well.  There are a ton of more deserving people.  I have no probem with people new to art, or who have little grasp of anatomy being in the days favs, but seeing art that looks as though it took the artist no more then 2 minutes to draw doesn't deserve the credit.  Its easy to tell when an artist, no matter the calibre, puts effort into their piece and when they don't.  I don't understand why these people just shit pieces of artwork out, you only improve when you actually attempt to put some effort into your work (at least in most cases).

Some of those daily deviations you people question as to why they were chosen were chosen because of either the artist's comments or what it meant to the person who nominated them for a daily deviations. It doesn't always have to do with the quality of the art chosen for daily deviations, though its happened several times.

Now the daily popular art, that's what's either yaoi (cosplay or art), naruto (cosplay or art), kingdom hearts (cosplay or art), or nudity on a rather ridiculously daily basis with a tiny bit something else that's unique compared to what's usually up there.

I agree here.  I'm not a fan of anime myself, but I can understand why the first anime picture was given a DD, and thats probably more for their description then anything else and the awareness the artist is trying to present to the public.
