DD Suggestion Guidelines

A clarification of my guidelines can be found HERE

:bulletblue: I only accept Daily Deviations for the Fan Art, Digital Art>Pixel Art and the Customization>Digital Dolls galleries.

:bulletblue: Please include the :thumbxxxxxxxx: for your suggestion in a note.

:bulletblue: Please make sure that the artist has not had a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

:bulletblue: The artist must be an active deviant (as in been active in the last month).

:bulletblue: When suggesting contest entries, please make sure that the contest has closed and posted results first!

:bulletblue: You are more than welcome to suggest yourself if you feel as if you deserve a DD. Don't be shy. :la:

:bulletblue:I will not feature anything that has been traced. Artist's descriptions must list any references, stock, brushes or other resources used. This is especially so with Photo-realism!

:bulletblue: As I am one of the most indecisive people on earth, I will not answer whether or not I will be DDing something unless you are a self suggester. I prefer to keep it a surprise and I like knowing that I can change my mind =)

Contest! Grand prize over 2k points!Hello and welcome to our first contest!
We are honored to host a contest with Deneesi and SoggyGames - they are looking for a pixel start screen that can be used in their game. All the details are below!
Theme of the Contest: Start screen for "Neon Rampage" game
:bulletgreen: What is Neon Rampage? 
It's an original space shooter, designed for mobile gaming. The main goal is to survive and buy upgrades. Shoot and dodge while hordes of varied enemies come raining down. 
The game itself is still deep in development, but it is available to download here (note that there are still bugs in the game).
Although the game graphics are not pixel art, the creators still desire a pixel start screen.
This game will be available to be downloaded for free. However, you can donate to support the creators here<

:iconcrliterature: :iconcommunityrelations:
Ghouls and Ghasts and ne'er do wells, welcome once again to the LaBORatory for our annual celebration of stories in the season of all things spooky.
This year, we return to the abandoned house at the end of the block, with the upstairs window from which something always seems to wave at passersby. We drive along the lonely stretch of road at midnight, eyes unblinking, hoping to catch a glimpse of the girl who hitches a ride, only to vanish from the passenger seat when we pass the old cemetery. We point trembling fingers over the rail at the spectral ship that has spelled the doom of generations of captains and crew. We roll the ball into the old, dark nursery, and wait to see if it will roll back out again.
This year, we are telling ghost stories. Have a seat by the fire, won't you?

Eleven.. Cover Contest!
So, for as long as I can remember I've had access to the most incredible range of books, from novels, tall tales and everything in between; all of those I've read (and I'm sure you all agree) it's most frequently their covers you immediately think of when you hear their titles.  It goes without saying that a picture tells a thousands words, and cover art, for that specific reason has to grab the reader by the eyeballs and hold their attention right through to the very last page in a yummy, captivating smorgasbord of plot teasers, incredible characters and dreamy (or dystopian) landscapes.   Essentially, book cover p0rn :D
Visiting bookshops used to be as much about the cover art as it was about the text on the pages, which is why these days seeing the dozens of dreary, completely plain covers which do absolutely NOTHING to sell the book leaves me a little cold.  Further I just can't understand why publishers are going in this direction.

Only if they are in the Fan Art gallery or the Pixel Art gallery; otherwise that sort of thing would be Moonbeam13's department at the moment.
