Where is the Devious Love?

An article promoting positivity in the community

And general warmth and fuzziness

Volume I | Volume II | Volume III | Volume IV | Volume V | Volume VI | Volume VII | Volume VIII

I wanted to put together a series of articles that focus on the opposite of drAma, instead focusing on positives. 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.

"I would like to spread some Devious Love who is spreading Devious love themselves Bozack who takes the time to run features and gathers points to give up and coming artists memberships. I definately think Bozack deserves some love.  Check out her amazing macro photography too!

Last I would like to throw out someone I think is fairly well known in the community, but I want to give some devious love to FOERVRAENGD because of all the help and tutorials she has provided!"

"First, I'd like to send love to my friend onisuu . Not only is her art adorable, but she's one of the most giving and sweetest people I know. She seems to really enjoy making gift art for others, and her OCs are the coolest. ^.^ She has a great imagination, and I'm glad to be friends with her.

alganori is also an amazing artist with a keen eye for detail. She's sweet and fun to talk to, and her OCs are fun and filled with levels. It's like they're real people! Slide is my favorite. ^w^ I love her style, and always look forward to talking to her and seeing the next piece of artwork.

SunnyLore is like a big sister to me. Though we don't get to talk much anymore, I think of her often, and appreciate the shout-outs and advice she gives me. When I'm down, I know she's always there, and I adore her crazy. Her art is aspiring, but I love her writing the most. <3 She deserves mad props for being so awesome. Her OCs RULE, and I'm not just saying that because I RP with her. XP She can act out a boss love scene in particular.

Not only is Zue's art AMAZING, but she's a fun person to talk to and a great person to commission from. She drew one of my favorite OC pics for me at a time when I was at my worst. Not to mention that I love reading her comics when I'm depressed and have time on my hands. ^_^; Her characters are so diverse and I love them; especially William. XP

Then there's wazuppeoples6 Who has as many, maybe more OCs than I do! (And since I have around 150, that's saying something. XP ) When she sketches, she likes drawing my characters with hers, and it makes me so happy to see them every time. I feel special when I see them, and she's a great friend who I can depend on. "

"FlashyFashionFraud is the most amazing person ever (in my opinion). She's outgoing on so many levels, very friendly, willing to try many things, has many talents, and (as she says on her front page) she tries to be a friend to everyone   :3"

"First off, EmpressRain, a wonderful aspiring artist with a great personality to match. I just wanted to say don't ever give up on your art, it really is admirable. I love talking to you and look forward to talking to you whenever I can, and I really trust you. You make me laugh. And I've told you things I've never told anyone else before. Thinking of you always with love~ <3

Second of all, I'd like to give another message to naegamis. You're one of my oldest friends on deviantart for years now. I'm glad you're always there for me and I'll always be here for you too. Your art is improving as well since we've first met, and I love watching and talking to you about anything. Love ya too~

To checkingavalability, you're art is improving so much and I just love listening to your conversations. Hearing about your day to day life can be amusing with all that you tell me about. And your ideas are brilliant as well. An amazing friend to talk to c:

Lastly, Spiritpie. We need to talk more, but when I do talk to you I do enjoy it. I'm always open for anything, and I'd love to become even closer friends than we already are. Cause frankly, you are quite BAMF :'D

Love every single one of you guys~ <3"

"I just wanted to say that Ayara012 is an epic fan-girl who will rule the earth with epicness and anime. ;) And she's epic.

And WDMacro is a llama burrito whose awesomeness explodes from a potato. A potato that has really amazing photography."

"To my best friend in the entire world, CaptinRedRibbon
for always being there for me and influencing and inspiring me in so many ways. We have been best friends for over ten years and you've contributed to my life and my art in so many ways. I really don't know where I'd be without you."

"I wanna send Devious Love to the following people, for being friends, for the support and love they’ve shown me, without expecting anything in return and for proving everyone wrong, who said you can’t form friendships on the internet:

3lda Thank you for believing in me as one of the first people on dA. You’re a great friend and just as great an artist. You’re really an inspiration for me on so many levels. Love ya. :hug:

AccidentalSketch Thank you for always making me laugh, and for being the positive and sweet person you are. And thanks for having an absolute twin to my brain. xD

ClefairyKid Thank you for all the support you’ve shown, not only towards me, but the whole community. dA wouldn’t be the same without you. And I’m really sad that Australia is that far away, so I can’t come and hang out. You’re such a kind person.

Cosmicsweetangel Thank you for endless chats in the middle of the night and for listening when I needed someone to talk. You’re so nice.

JealousKills I know you’re not on dA often, but I wanna thank you for helping me out when I had Photoshop problems, for being one of the best people to fangirl over Paramore with, and for being a great friend. I’m quite proud to have found you before you got immensly tumblr.-famous. xD And you really deserve that. You’re one of the most amazing gif-artists out there.

magiccoupons You’re just awesome. xD I really wanna buy millions of Kinder Surprises and play Zelda with you or something. xD

NickyToons You deserve every bit of fame you’re getting! You’re very kind and I’m so proud and honored to work with you.

paraXmelXmore Thank you for caring, thank you for your friendship, thank you for trusting me and talking to me. Thank you for fantasizing with me about going to Nashville together. We need to meet someday. ♥

Poof-Geek Thank you for always writing me the sweetest and best comments and for the great conversations in general. :3

TheJoanaPADJ I think you’re such a nice girl and I’d love to hang out and talk in our bad-accents-english about all kind of things. Thank you for writing me virtual postcards over your summer vacation. I felt so special. x3

Miastroeh I think you have so much potential and are so creative. I’m very curious where you will go artistically and I’m looking forward to new work. :3

YueYuki You’re so good at capturing deep emotion in your pictures, while they still can look so light and fluffy. Besides you’re so sweet and Ich hab dich lieb. ;3"

"daithe is a wonderful artist who always makes me smile. Her comments/journals are insanely long and more than a bit hyper and fantabulously wonderful. Everyone should check out her gallery, she's a lovely person to know. :heart:

zerosilver is one of my favourite people to talk to on dA, I can't count the number of huge comment-marathons we have going. Every time I talk to her the conversation keeps going and merges into something else. She's so kind and open-minded and lovely to chat to.

angelStained is a brilliant critic and does so much for the literature community with her lovely features, guides and dedication to several groups. Seriously, I see her name pop up everywhere – she's like a super-ninja. :eyes: She is also a brilliant writer and a lovely person. Her gallery is well worth browsing.

Quolia is a warm, bright and friendly person who is a community inspiration for me. She always has something nice to say or some question to spark conversation and she's simply wonderful, I am proud to know her :heart:"

"So I really want to say, Kurausu101 Is the most creative and funny dA sister I could ever ask for! She's always there when I need to talk to her, and I'm glad to have her as my best friend :aww: Whether RPing or just having fun chatting, she always puts a smile on my face :heart:"

KingdomOfTheMoon9120, I loved looking at her cute chibis. She's always willing to learn and become better at drawing. Can't wait to see more in the future~

Shep610, for being so funny. LOL the times we used to fight over Gray and flush Juvia down the toilets... sigh those were the good times. Also, her poetry/literature are AMAZING

LiveLaughLove190, She has the most amazing talent for Photography. She reall captures the essence in every thing that she takes pictures of. She's also supportive.

"JessamineDiane is such a brilliant friend and a total inspiration to me. She's always there for me, always listens to what I say, and she's someone who I know will always have my back. She's extremely witty and funny, and a very talented writer. She will definitely be a best-selling author one day. She's such an amazing person and such a hard worker. I love her to peices! :heart: :huggle:"

"Well first of course mansikkaMisa. She is so talented, and I have aways thought she is. She knows how to color and draw in many different ways and is learning to get better every day.

Make a Difference!

By writing a critique for someone! Even if you don't have the official critique option available, anyone can take the time to analyse and comment on someone's artwork. People appreciate the time and effort you put in, especially when it gives them an opportunity to learn and improve. In fact in doing so, you may find that you yourself become more aware of artistic techniques and ideas and thus help both of you to improve!

Check out these groups here for critique opportunities!

Thoughtful Quote

"Anyways, this is something I feel very strongly about. Kindness is often mistaken for weakness, which is quite the opposite. It takes courage to love today's world. It takes strength to turn the other cheek, to be kind to those who have hurt you or others. If being kind were so easy and so wussy then you would see everyone doing it. It's easy to be hateful and mean. It takes true strength to be kind."

- PianoxLullaby

I am always looking for more people to send in messages for these articles, so never hesitate to do so! 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 stories of success, small triumphs, a simple "You're awesome!" or whatever you think is something positive that could be shared with the community. If someone has sent some kind words about you, please consider continuing the love and spread some of your own for others.

This is one of the greatest ideas ever. Really. And I truly hope to participate in it in the future (when I actually have a computer and can put some thought into it) because I know such wonderful deviants here! :clap:
ClefairyKid Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
It doesn't really matter how you go about it, only needs to be a few lines honestly ^^; It's getting harder and harder to convince people to send in messages because they think they have to be a particular way, just so long as it's kind and towards someone or the community itself, it's fine :aww:

Glad you like it though and thanks for the support :aww:
Kameolynn Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Yea.. it's just that I hate my phone's touchscreen keyboard =P so I use it as little as possible. Plan to hear from me soon though!
mysteryhedgehog6 Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011

ClefairyKid Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
I always do more XD As you can see at the top it's been going a while lol and at the bottom it says to please send notes with messages whenever you can, it's getting harder to convince people to send them ^^; only has to be a few lines or one or two people, or it can be a bunch, so long as it's a nice message : )
