has thought of a brilliant idea for a project. His latest news article "Be the Change Challenge"
could be what helps make dA into a better community, and to uncover all those talented & unknown artists.
The whole concept is to create a journal featuring;
A relatively unknown deviant.
Ten pieces of relatively unknown work.
Help out a deviant in someway. (i.e. gift a sub, buy a print, leave helpful feedback)
If you are unsubscribed and cannot "thumb" work in your journal, it would be just as helpful if you left helpful feedback to many people, or link deviations in your journal. Any bit of contribution will help. For most of you, this is the norm to you, but other people often comment to the popular, and not to the unknown. Please get involved and help make a better art community!
I'm going to feature my best friend Natalie. She does photography in school (including darkroom), and outside of school aswell. She often posts her photographs on deviantART, but not many people know of her, or are willing to critique a new and talented artist. Behind the artist's photographs:
Natalie is doing her last year of school with me, and it is not easy to get out and take photographs while trying to study for end-of-year exams. She is a very bright, happy-go-lucky and sweet natured person. Her personality if reflected through her beautiful photographs, yet some people pass them by and this is why I am featuring her, not just because she is my best friend.
My next feature is ~indie-click
. I first found a few super cute photos and was astounded that she had only around 2000 pageviews! Not only is she a gorgeous person inside and out, she has such stunning photographs! I'm sure you will agree.
If you're stuck on how to make a really good comment, I believe this will help:
Thank you EVERYONE who commented/faved/watched the last person I featured, !IsE369
. Everyone loved her work and were stunned that she had barely any recognition. I am really happy that people take on board my advice.
If you know of anyone that deserves a feature, please note me.
Thanks to everyone who gives me support for my artwork. It really does make me want to keep submitting ! If you would like to see more of something , I am always up for suggestions.
*~Sarah JaneA small update on my life: Exams are so close and I'm fretting. I am very serious about becoming a teacher, and I also want to keep doing photography, childcare, and be a writer... so many things to do. Can I do it? Question: What is your strangest addiction?
Let me know how you're all doing!!
