Where is the Devious Love?


An article promoting positivity in the community


And general warmth and fuzziness
:love:


Volume I

I wanted to put together a series of articles that focus on the opposite of drAma, instead focusing on positives. First off, here is a collection of messages I have gathered from members of the community, that highlight positive moments, be they success stories, kind words or general messages of encouragement for those who work hard.


=morti-e-sola is an incredible writer. Her poems, short stories, haikus and other things are always amazing. They're constantly deep and inspiring. The emotion that they convey is fantastic. I feel that original writers on deviantART don't get the love that they should. It's always about the fanfiction. Her whole gallery is full of expressive writing that I love to pieces. She's one of my best friends. She supports the community, too. Always leaving positive comments and feedback.

Likewise, ~SociallyFlawedDesign is a fantastic digital artist. She makes such beautiful, unique things. Everything she makes has so much imagination in it. She's incredibly creative. She's always doing what so many artists should be doing. She's constantly working on her style, changing the way she does things, and always trying to improve. I'm so inspired by her. (: She's such a great friend.

They both have so much talent. The doubt themselves on it constantly, and I think they should know that they really are amazing. ♥

`3wyl is a very supportive deviant who captures stunning and unique photographs and commits herself to multiple groups here on dA. Her constructive comments always leave me happy after reading them, and I am so happy to have met her here.

`jcroxas is an adorably spunky and positive deviant who brightens my day with his comments of random love or with his enthusiasm. He always looks out for real-world issues and helps to encourage the best in all of us.  

=TimberClipse's community devotion and motivated efforts to make dA a better place for us all continue to blow me away. He is just awesome in general!

`Mirz123 is a prominent emoticonist who cultivates young talent in that community. I would not be making emotes today if it were not for her encouragement and advice.  


Love sent by SanguineEpitaph


*Tajii-chan is such a sweetheart. She always comments on other peoples' art, and each one is in-depth and meaningful. She shows love for the community through her "Visit a Random Deviant" event (it's a great way to meet new people), and her art is bubbly and downright lovely. It is so easy to like this girl.


Love sent by Emerald-Depths


NamiAngel creates such wonderful fan art with a variety of different fandoms and is always looking to help out other artists with friendly suggestions and support for their own art works.

Silverpaw15 is a fantastic writer on and off the site. She is the being of eternal optimism. She always has very positive comments to make, is forever friendly and has an unending supply of patience for silly people like me. She is one of the greatest friends in my life and I can't be more grateful to have her as my friend.

Skandron writes stories that grip your heart, get you on the edge of your seat and really get you thinking for the TMNT fandom. When the chips are down, you know you can count on her to give you a moral boost to help you face any situation in life.

Prophetella is a constant inspiration with what she does within her turtletales group. Always positive, always there if you need to talk and willing to give you any support she can when you need it.

ClefairyKid is forever giving back to the deviantart community with her articles, tutorals and critiques. She is an amazing digital artist who helped me get started and I can't thank her enough. She is a wonderful friend to have.

Thoughtful Quote


"This isn't about becoming another part of the internet hate machine, this is about being that one person to stand up and stop it. I love the deviantart community and everyone in it. I wish to give others the courage to keep improving and making art, not tear them down."

- Avialea

Please send a note to ClefairyKid with the subject "Devious Love" with any lovely messages or words of encouragement you might have for members of the community. Remember that they can be stories of success, small triumphs, a simple "You're awesome!" or whatever you think is something positive that could be shared with the community. Also, if someone made you an amazing piece of gift art, send me a thumb and a few lines that show your appreciation!

Oh honey, there's a LOT of love here! Maybe SOME of us are too shy about expressing it.

And I gotta say about some of the "haters" - hating doesn't mean not loving - they just need to stop hating and just love the ones they already love! (And if they don't love ANYBODY, THEN shame on them!!!)

And I gotta say about those who work hard - I don't - I just like to look pretty - but I sure do know some who do! - and yes, let's give them OUR love! (Want me to mention names? *Chronophontes is responsible for himself and for a whole lot of virtual characters, including me!)

Got plenty of love for the art and artists, but I will never have kind words for people who submit screencaptures from TV/film or random photos of 'celebrities'.

We often complain so much about the actual deviantART site we forget its the people that actually make it! it can either be good or bad depending on those you pay attention to and those you choose to ignore! This is such a wonderful article! (But in the future i bet you could make it more appealing by featuring art that is not just based around anime and manga-no i am not a hater-)
Reply
:iconclefairykid:
ClefairyKid Featured By Owner May 26, 2011
Yeah, that is a good way of wording my feelings with this article :giggle: It isn't about the site (I have my opinions, but that is for another place), I just wanted this to be something where we thought about each other and being postive in ways that encourage or cheer up others in the community.

To be honest, I did not actually choose to focus on anime for the features, I chose to focus on recently created artworks that were made as gifts, for which I used the newest search option with 'gift' as the keyword, as well as a couple of stamps that I remembered seeing made as gifts recently, it just so happens a large number of gift artworks are anime :giggle: But this time, I have had people sending in their own examples of artworks that they have been given, so I won't be choosing many if any depending on the number of future suggestions :hug: But thank you for brining it to my attention, I hadn't really noticed it as such although I had planned to go on suggestions from others regardless :giggle:

It's pretty stressful when i came across something so hateful here. Glad there are still many people who support the devious love.

ClefairyKid Featured By Owner May 26, 2011
Yeah, it came as a surprise to me that people still managed to feel angry and upset by something that I had tried to make as uncontroversial as possible (if that's even such a word lol!) I do have an opinion on the controversial topics that I think they were talking about, but that's not what I wanted to write about here, since I know that will never result in more positivity xD
