10 reasons why Features are awesome

Tue Jul 7, 2015, 6:31 AM
Hello there beautiful people :wave:



Since I joined DeviantArt, among all the great things you can do and enjoy here, I discovered doing features was the best :la:

So Today I want to talk to you about FEATURES. They are awesome right, we know that :la:


 





I wish everybody in this community would do features, wouldn't this place be swimming in awesomeness :#1:


So here I thought about some reasons to convince you ( those who don't do features :stare: ) to start your own features and live the fun you are missing :la:







:target: Features are the best way to promote Art, which is why we are all here, to share art and appreciate it in the best ways.


:target:  Features are easy to do :la: I will tell you an easy way to do it, the way I do it in case you didn't know. Throughout the week, I collect my favorite pieces in a favorite collection, and when I decide to do it, I use stash to write the journal, and stash gives you the option to put anything on your journal be it emoticons, your own gallery and also your favorites. So you get the pieces you want to feature from your collection and put them in the journal. Believe me it can't be easier. ( If you don't know how to use stash to write a journal, send me a note, I'll walk you through it)


:target: Features make people happy :love: When you feature people, they feel loved, appreciated for what they do, they feel that their art matters  :love: and that shares a beautiful spirit in the community.


:target: Features help make friends. You get to know new people, have a new friend or two, the people who are featured may end up being friends as well


:target: Features encourage artist to create more. When you feature someone in your journal, they feel uplifted and that will give them a push to create more, be more productive in their art.


:target: Features help you share your own art as well( there is nothing bad about that :paranoid:). The new people you feature may end up checking your gallery, giving you some love in return :love:


:target: Features help you stay active on DeviantArt, ( cause sometimes you be like, eh today there is nothing to do on DA , which is wrong :stare:) if you get committed to do a weekly feature for example, you will find yourself often on DeviantArt, browsing for new pieces to feature and new artists to promote.


:target: Features help inspire you. I do a weekly Poetry feature, and the time I spend reading though poems to choose what I will be featuring is the best. I actually end up reading so much and getting inspired to write my own poems, and actually any genre you are featuring will give so much inspiration to create your own art.


:target: Features help reinforce friendship. sometimes when you feature your own long time friends as a gesture of appreciation and love :love: and in return you get loads of hugs and kisses :love:


:target: Features give you a nice reputation in Deviantart, ( Now I'm just trying to lure you:giggle:) as someone who supports art and spreads love in the community :salute: and that is priceless my friends :nod:



So are you convinced now that features are awesoooome :la: If not, maybe Gandalf the grey can take care of that ;)
Start your own features adventure :#1:

I'm working on a project to systematically feature many artists/artworks as part of a shared universe of stories and art. Do you have any good ideas on how to do this best? I was considering simply placing linked images in the text with HTML codes, like I've done for single pieces before. But if you have, or want to discuss, better ideas, I'm all ears! :D

Is it a feature for art from DeviantArt or outside DeviantArt :?

It's centered around DeviantArt, but it is 'global'. I hope to build some strength and reach out to 3D communities, writer communities, even voice actors and others. But for now, it's based around DeviantArt.

Yeah ^_^ I have done a feature for a couple of friends of mine since they featured my stuff, but I have not expanded from there (besides it was months ago).
