500 DDs + My Life as a Suggester

Fri Aug 29, 2014, 7:31 AM

Hello everyone! :la:

Most of you may not know this, but I actually suggest Daily Deviations (DDs). I've been doing this for a while now, but time flies so fast, I didn't realize until now that I have more than 500 DDs accepted, excluding the overlooked ones and 'suggested by many'. It was absolutely fun, and making descriptions for some of them was really... challenging (well, most probably because English isn't my first language, and I'm not very good with words). ^^;

I've been suggesting DDs for almost two and a half years. I officially started in April 2012, when I joined a contest about suggesting as many DDs as we can until the set deadline. I didn't win the contest, but I found and realized something more important as I suggest along the way. That's why I keep on suggesting from that time until now. :)

Now, I just want to share some of my experiences and thoughts about suggesting DDs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Experiences in suggesting.

When I joined the DD suggesting contest, it was only for fun. I didn't think of anything, except the prize, which is a whopping 1-year premium membership. Well at that time, I couldn't afford a premium membership that long, so I was really hoping I could win. But I didn't. I continued suggesting, but I constantly get frustrated when my suggestions are declined, or when they are overlooked by the Community Volunteers (CVs). I got tired and stopped for a while.

Until new set of volunteers came. I started suggesting again. There was one particular CV who declined almost all of my suggestions, hundreds of suggestions. I didn't have a choice; she was the only CV for that art category (if I remember correctly). I get disappointed all the time, and it pushed me to almost give up on suggesting. Then I didn't notice, it was already April 2013. I have realized that I'm not doing it right, because I never read their DD guidelines, and I just randomly suggest works, not only to one volunteer, but to all, which is very confusing and troublesome to them. (well...honestly, until now I still do this occasionally, and there are times I get caught by the CV) I know, I'm so sorry... ;u;

Before, I thought that my past suggestions were good enough for a DD, but I have forgotten that people have different tastes and preferences; I can't blame anyone. I observed how my other fellow suggesters suggest, and I learned a lot, especially from that CV I mentioned above, and from a fellow suggester who has inspired me to never give up on suggesting. Regrettably, it took me more than a year to realize it.

Lately, it's crazy. Some people send me notes and ask me to suggest their work as DD. Well, that's okay though, but really, they don't need me to suggest their works because anybody can suggest, and they can even suggest their own works. There were also some instances that they suggest works to me. Though it's somewhat flattering, of course, I'm not a CV and I can't do that. :3

Back then, I was never good at suggesting; I hated myself as a suggester. I had only around 30 accepted suggestions from the time I started until 2013 of the same month. Then it became more than 350 from 2013 until 2014 of the same month! I still don't know how I managed to do that. By the way, I count DDs over time not because I want to brag or anything negative, but it somehow helps me to see if I am improving or not. ;p

Now I've reached 500 suggestions, I wonder if I will reach 1000 someday. :thanks:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About my suggestions.

My first ever suggestion is actually a Digital Art piece, but I couldn't find it anymore. Probably the artist deactivated few months after he got the DD due to inactivity. The next one is a Manga/Anime piece, which is therefore officially the first in my collection:

Time to Draw Ver 2 by chamoth143


And of course, my 500th accepted suggestion. There are actually three, because they are simultaneously featured in one day (thus any among them could be the 498th, 499th or 500th). These are in Traditional Art, Wallpaper and Digital Art categories respectively:

The Native by ronmonroe  Nathyrra - Commission by ethanrevolution  Assassin by shenfeic


I rarely suggest in Photography category. I don't have a good eye for photography. I honestly couldn't tell if the piece is DD-worthy or not. And out of 500, I only have two Photography pieces accepted! :wow: These are really special to me:

New Beginning by CaveCanem42  Babydoll, My Favorite Doll by BlackMageAlodia


I also rarely suggest in Street Art category. I'm having a hard time looking for pieces in this category. And out of 500, I only have one Street Art piece accepted! :faint: This is absolutely treasure:

Mural by TurkesART


I suggest to almost all art categories, except for two: Resources & Stock Images and Literature. I never (not even dared) suggested a piece from these categories. I guess, like in Photography, I don't have a good eye for them and I don't feel the confidence that the piece would get a DD. You see, when you're suggesting for some time, you'll have this feeling or thinking, "ah, this piece will definitely get a DD if I send it to this CV". I just don't feel it when suggesting to these art categories. ;p

I think the most number of my suggestions accepted is from Digital Art (general), then Manga/Anime category.
And the record of most number of suggestions accepted in one day is five. And if I remember correctly, it only happened twice: November 6, 2013 and May 27, 2014 (I had a hard time remembering the dates, but luckily I remember the DDs featured)


The following are my favorite DDs. When I first saw them, my jaw literally dropped! I find them exceptional, I was really in awe, so I did not hesitate to suggest them. I felt at that moment (yeah the feels :heart:) that they are undoubtedly DD-worthy:

my jaeger V-00 by ptitvinc  Revenge by kakotomirai  Zhur-Taa Ancient by AdamPaquette
Once a God by Balaskas  Land of Giants by desmondWOOT
The Royal and the Humanitarian by handrewx  Forest of Magic by iya-chen  A Story by SansaXIX
::Commission::Her beauty by nanshu  To love you is to be so duty-bound by h6x6h
Palace of recollection by HiroUsuda  Concept art 01 by Deino3330  sunset by weila9
Dragon arhat by white70WS  Happy New Year 2013 by chamooi  Unknowable by davepalumbo

Lunchtime by 86hrhr 
Mermaid by gensan613  Brother Sparrow by myhilary
Ponyo : Ship Shape by staticwind  POP WORLD by PeL07


While these are the suggestions I find really unique and interesting, whether it be on the overall concept, or the background story associated with it:


Game by parbusart  My world by wantou  Guilt and Guardians by gavi-gavi
Wolves by gorak-boo  Spirit in Playful Mood by jacintojc  We Are the Lotus Kids by kaiser-mony  Color Blind by Regularita
DRuGs by Brosa  The Last Supper by LindaRHerzog
sleepy princess by tama-lynn  39 Roses by m-v-c  morning sketch:balerina by alrasyid



But I absolutely LOVE all of my suggestions, because they somewhat keeps me connected to these artists. :heart:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thoughts.

I don't know until when I could suggest. I certainly love suggesting, but sometimes real life can get in the way of things. Lately it's becoming more difficult for me to manage my time. I've been on hiatus for a while, and haven't been able to post decent art.

I am hoping that with this journal, I am able to inspire you to suggest DDs too. :heart: We all start somewhere. We'll have our ups and downs. I did not instantly become a 'great' suggester like some people tell me. Like in everything you do and things you aspire to be, just keep on doing what you love and never ever give up. If you fail on something or if things didn't turn out the way you want, strive harder and make it your motivation to do better next time.

If you're interested in DD suggesting, you may check my tutorial here, but there are also plenty of tutorials about DD suggesting here in dA. I wrote everything I know about suggesting in this tutorial:

TUTORIAL: How To Suggest DDs + Some Tips[UPDATE: 1/20/2014] I updated this tutorial and added new pointers. These are particularly about browsing the artist's gallery (#4).

Hi everyone! :D
Few deviants asked me for some tips on how I suggest DDs. It's true that I have suggested some DDs, though I don't really consider myself that good at suggesting. But I hope at the end of this tutorial, I could impart some inspiration and you would learn something new about DD suggestions.
I made this tutorial for those who are interested in DD suggesting. I also provided some tips, and hopefully they would be helpful. Most of what I wrote here are what I learned along the way (as I suggest), and based from my experience. The important reminders are in red bullets :bulletred:.
1. First of all, what are DDs ?
DD or Daily Deviation is basically a one-day art feature of deviations selected by our Community Volunteers (CV) or Staff members. These wonderful deviations are brought to the attention of the



If there are CVs who I frequently suggest to that are reading this right now, I apologize for all the trouble I have caused, and thank you so much for all the help and for bearing with me. You are all amazing! :thanks:

Thank you for reading. And thank you very much for all the support! :hug:
