AW Thank you so much Kainaa and Moonbeam13 for the DD!

Congrats! I think with how I'm finally practicing every day and improving maybe someday I'll be on DD level. I'm done with the self-hate and down with the self-love!

It is not always skill that determines whether you get one or not. Sometimes the execution gives it merit too. I have seen some damn amazing minimal art get DDs, but they were awesome in the message or method, not the raw skill. Do not get me wrong, most DDs are well deserved, but looking through them, i notice some people get them over and over and over again. I wont name names, but popularity and knowledge of your own follwers makes a difference too. If they dont know DDs exist, they cannot suggest one. If they dont know how to suggest, they cannot suggest. That can have an impact too.

Also yeah, being more optimistic and positive of your work certainly helps.

Aha, Now that I got one, I think it's 6 months before I can get one again. Thanks for the thought though!

Daily Deviation. Essentially each day the volunteers in various categories select artwork that has been suggested by other users (or self-suggested) to be featured on a special page and the homepage. The chosen artwork is featured for 24 hours. ouo

yeah you can click on the "more" button on the top right of your screen underneath your message center and look for the " :heart: Daily Deviations" tab. Clicking on it will show you the deviations for each day. You can also find them on the front page or the "Today" page.

Congratulations on the DD!



Also, different topic: when do you want me to have translated the current pages of the comic? If I know the "deadline" I can work on it better than if I do not know it

Thanks!

I cannot afford to pay my translators right now. I had a 400$ vet bill two weeks ado and that was my translation money. I won't ask anyone to translate until I can pay them, and at present I don't know when that will be. IF you want to translate it and wait until I can send you the empty pages, that's up to you.
