The artist has no control over the fact they were awarded a Daily Deviation.
It's plain fact. There is no possible way for a person to truthfully "like" absolutely everything they lay their eyes upon here in dA. It simply cannot be done. Therefore, there will be pieces of artwork that you will not understand or like in the Daily Deviations, it's a natural normal thing, so stay with me here. Now, here is what you absolutely should not do to the artist of the DD you are offended by:
1. Berate him or her. Remember, they didn't ask for the DD, it was awarded to them.
2. Call the deviation crap, junk, sh*t, ect. That's being rude, and can get you in a decent amount of trouble depending on who reads it. Remember, just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it isn't art.
Both of those things are very disrespectful. As artists we are all in the same club as peers.
If you were in an actual physical art gallery, saw something you didn't like, would you go out of your way to find the artist and say to their face "This is shit, and doesn't deserve to be in here."Do you really want to be this guy
Didn't think so.
So, here's what you should do if you see something you don't like in the DDs:
1. Pass it up. Most times, it does not require you to comment because you're only going to say something mean. Spare the artist, and keep your foot away from your mouth.
2. Talk to the moderator who suggested it. If you truly feel strongly about something featured, talk directly to the person who featured it. Let them know why you're upset, and ask them about their intentions.
Here is what I do when I come across artwork that I don't like: I find out about it. There is usually a story there. After I learn about it, as well as the artist, I feel better, and I understand the work (may not like it still) but I have a new found respect for it and the artist.
With as much criticism coming in from the outside world, why would we artists want to tear each other down? It doesn't make sense, and it is of no good, for yourself, the other person, or the artwork. Give respect, especially if you expect to receive it.
