Nope, I did not get a DD! But I did get tabbed by the wonderfully glittery pinkythepink for a special journal entry. Yes, after a millennium of ash and silence, an entry rises out of the ruins! And it's packed with nothing but dA love that I can only give most ardently.
Welcome to a Community Volunteer project in which we will be highlighting our favourite Daily Deviations featured within the recent weeks! We would like to encourage the community to join in on this project by simply going through the Daily Deviations page and collecting some of their favourite pieces of art within a journal titled "My Daily Deviation Highlights"! We hope this project will help spread awareness and love for Daily Deviations and our fellow deviant artists!
You may choose to feature deviations from all categories, or you can focus your journals on a specific category such as Photography, Fan Art, Manga/Anime or whatever suits you! This is a very open project in which creativity in the way you choose to highlight Daily Deviations is welcome and encouraged!
Don't forget to use #DDHighlights on your journals!
zosiaq has a stunning gallery that every young, aspiring experimental photographer can learn from. Quirky, nostalgic, and dependent on a diversity that is almost manic depressive, these photographs contain stories that take root in you and remain with you for days, with their buds of thought blooming out of your ears. This DD is one of the numerous epitomes of film photography that still speaks of artistry in a world so obsessed with the rational and the practical.
Nuaran presents a vivid, colorful, and intriguing set of characters in their gallery. This DD, however, captivates the most. The expert use of watercolor to create volume and provide stark highlights (look't those eyes and the light glare at the bottom!) makes the whole thing come alive, so much so that the work is almost interactive. You feel compelled to smile at Rene herself, and perhaps listen to the pleasant small talk about how cold it's gotten on that wintry afternoon.
This little gem by RayEtherna could not be described any better by its DD description: "... an elegant artwork with wonderful flow, beautiful light and delicate detail." (Agaave) Packed with a mystical air and a fluid form of motion, this DD thrives off the amazing color contrasts used, the hypnotic basic shape of the character, and the variety of lines matched up to complete the impact of the work. Check out the artist's gallery for more spectacular creatures!
NGC 6188 in Ara
octane2 takes us to another part of the universe, far off the face of the earth, without charging us a cent for rocket fuel. His awe-inspiring photographs contain so much depth and mystery that it seems too mesmerizing to believe. One can get lost and get swallowed by the millions of silvery stars dotting the perfectly blended hues of the sky beyond the clouds -- all with just one look. Truly, it makes you feel like the smallest speck in the great expanse of the universe, but when you figure it all out through a DD such as this, it ain't so bad at all! Miss no galactic beats by visiting this deviant's gallery.
Warhammer 40000 Inquisitor cosplay
Who doesn't love a spectacular suit of armor? my99reality is sure to take the dynamic cosplay community head-on, especially with a beautifully rendered blunt weapon at hand. With the right amount of focus on details, a great show of artisan craftsmanship, (fiberglass plastic!) and a dramatic angle utilized at its best, this DD will not only stir the fans of Warhammer 40k off their seats, but also compel everyone else to eye every haunting golden design that made the entire set absolutely breathtaking.
There's something about PeL07's pipe dream of a work that is so soothing and endearing. From the cool temperatures of the color palette to the dreamy atmosphere, this DD reaches past the typical impressions of pixel art by defying the standards of saturated hues in an enchanting scene that seems straight out of a bedtime story. The dimensions of the work is exceptionally pieced, with every tiny piece fitting perfectly, with not a pixel short or a pixel gone astray. Find more astounding pixel art in this deviant's gallery!
There you have it! I encourage all my watchers and anyone who stumbles upon this journal entry to support our talented Daily Deviants. We get a new set everyday, and let's face it, there aren't enough days in one lifetime to fit all the wonderful artworks that deserve attention here on deviantART. Hey, you'll never know, but one day, you could be on a featured journal, too!
Art is a way of life as we know it. Let's keep the spirit of art shining bright!
