A Poll A Day

A small idea


There are numerous amounts of brilliant traditional art here on dA. Not everyone gets the exposure or the popularity deserved here. As a traditional artist myself, I know the amount of time and effort that goes into creating each and every traditional piece of art. So, can't a group of us traditional artists do a little something for each other and the larger community?Here is a fairly simple idea that a few of us have decided to begin.

A Poll A Day


 1.The usage of polls as a way of exposing art
 2.Art shall be displayed as thumbs
3.A group of us traditional artists take turns as rotation each day to bring out the under-exposed
4.Creating a special folder in favorites consisting of the deviations that have already been displayed in A Poll A Day previously in each deviants' page


1.Polls can have a minimum of 1 deviation to a maximum of 4
2.All the deviations displayed should have less than a 100 faves.
3.The last link displayed in the poll must lead back to the previously displayed A Poll A Day folder.
4.Once a deviant has finished doing the poll on his/her turn, they should send a note to the deviant next in line as a reminder of his/her turn in doing the poll.


Have a look at these artworks

Hey I think this needs to be updated so I can see when it's supposed to be my turn... Just trying to get ready for it and I feel like I'm behind already :ashamed:

Hi Kevin. Do you check these for your turn.
I put up a journal once each cycle finishes and here is the latest one -[link]
I send notes to everyone in the cycle as well. Maybe u missed the note. Please check this out for your turn :)

Okay... I just followed the link in Paula's latest poll and found the original line-up... I'm trying to stay on top of it :D Should I have all of the previous artwork in my favorites or just what I post or just what's won each poll?
zakkiya29 Jun 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha ok! I hope I've lead you to the right way now.
No there are no winning in these . These are just a way of showcasing some art. So you need to favorite all the displayed deviations in your " A poll A day" favorites folder and then just out in the link leading to this folder.

Wow that's a lot of fav's... Suppose I should get busy then ;p
zakkiya29 Jun 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Just go to my favorites folder and keep adding but its ok. You can start with the next poll. It doesn't matter or else it will get too difficult for you :)

Nah I'm going to do this one! ;p I've got my heart set on getting into this full swing and I just want to do it right :D
