A POLL A DAY

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 13, 2012, 3:58 AM
A Poll A Day

A small idea


:iconhello1plz::iconhello2plz:
:iconsmileandwaveplz:


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


THE IDEA



 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




GROUND RULES 

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.




AN EXAMPLE

Have a look at these artworks

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?

:iconzakkiya29:
zakkiya29 Featured By Owner 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.

It's a brilliant idea, and thank you very much for the feature, I really appreciate it. I have been featuring work from a lot of groups of artwork that I enjoy, so they can gain the attention deserved too...I just really haven't done it from one particular group such as traditional...but you're right, traditional is being left by the wayside for digital and the like...so it's nice to see this :)

Oh that's awesome. Its great to meet people who love featuring beautiful art. This is just a very small idea that a group of us traditional artists are doing in order to expose fabulous art that have just under 100 faves. If you would like to help out with this particular concept we would be thrilled. Please do let me know. :)
The more the merrier !

I'd like to help out but I'm not sure about the keeping a gallery thing or how to keep up with it? Could you please explain this part to me further... Im a bit slow ;p

:iconzakkiya29:
zakkiya29 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That would be wonderful.:)
Okay see what you have to do is make a folder in your favorites named "A poll A day" . To this folder you will put in all the deviations that had been previously displayed by yourself and other deviants as a part of the daily polls.
Then when you do a poll you will display a maximum of 4 deviations and you will also put in a link leading back to the "a poll a day" favourites folder so that people will have a choice to see what has been featured before.
I hope I make sense.
If you have any further queries just ask.

Seems like the folder thing would be hard to keep up with... I was noticing that not everyone's folder has the same pictures in it... and after awhile it'll really get bad I'd think... Seems like it'd be better if there was one place to put all the featured pictures... I don't know how that'd work though :-(

Since we are not doing this as a part of a group it is impossible to have it in one place. Even if many of the deviants have different deviations, its fine as long as it was displayed as part of a poll a day. Its just a small idea that can help. I dont think we need to ponder over it that much.

I would like to participate - the idea is awesome!!! One of my drawings has been featured and it really does make a difference, so I would like to help other artists get some attention this way as well.
Please let me know when the next date is available (it can be short noticed 'cause I already have some works picked out :D).

In the close future I'll make a journal about it to help you spread the word :) Can you tell me two things?

Who chooses these deviations that should be displayed in a poll?
What's after March 29th? The person who will create the poll on 30th of March is *robdolbs, then =anmeher and so on?
I actually might do this once or twice, I could let you know one week earlier, or will it disorganize the sequence?

:iconzakkiya29:
zakkiya29 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thankyou very much!

-The deviations are chosen by the deviant who does the poll that particular day.
-If anyone is interested in doing it before the finish of march 29th, I'll add that persons name. If not then *robdolbs does it on march 30th and the cycle continues.
If you let me know a convenient date on which you can do the poll a day, I will add you in. It won't disorganize it because , the person who was supposed to do on your date can just be moved to the next day.
I hope this helps.
:)

I've got a little question. :D
Are we supposed to make a Fav-folder and put ALL deviations in it, or just the ones that each of us chose for the poll? :-?

=LilaeaBluecoat was wondering the same thing. To make matters simple, I think the ones we've already featured should be okay isnt it. Either way it doesn't matter I suppose.
