Would anyone want to work with me to make a comic?For the Longest time I have had an awesome idea for a comic, but I lack the artistic ability to draw it myself. I would really like to make this comic come to life, that means I need some help. I don't want to give to much of the story away, but I have found a way to make this story be told by, humans, animals and probably can find away to make it work with any other if needed. Originally it was from the point of view of a human, but like I said doesn't have to be. I think it would be really fun to work with someone on this! I would give any artistic help I could and there would of course be joint credit given! If you have any questions feel free to ask. If you think you might want to do this with me, note my main account ~SecretTheScienceDog!(I'm just trying to spread the word so I'm also asking on this adopt account!) I hope someone takes interest in this!Would anyone want to work with me to make a comic? by ~Secret-Adoptables

Hello everyone! In this “Common Misconceptions” blog we’ll be covering the often-debated topic of Daily Deviations, more commonly known as DD’s. This topic is probably most talked about above any other here on deviantART and I don’t think it can be discussed enough when it comes to misinformation. So, let’s begin!A Daily Deviation is an award
______ shouldn’t have received that DD, because _______ was on dA longer!It really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a deviant when it comes to getting DD’s. If you feel that someone who’s been here longer “deserves” a DD more than someone who has been here maybe not even a week, you’re sadly mistaken.
Some things/people just don’t deserve to get DD’s
To be fair, it will be absolutely impossible for you to like every image you come across in the DD’s. Some subjects or art styles may not jive with you, and that’s ok. What isn’t is pitching a fit about it. I’m not sure where the phrase “this doesn’t deserve” originated when it comes to DD’s because a DD isn’t even something that can be earned.
DD’s have gone downhill
Once again, to be fair, it’s impossible for every DD to tickle you pink. To say that the selections that are in the DD’s are going downhill quality wise is absurd. If anything, I’d say that the features that are in the DD’s are not what you’ll come across in museums or public art forums, and it’s not because of quality. Sterility of images or more “traditional” subject matter isn’t an issue with DD’s. Quite honestly, the DD’s represent great works that can otherwise be largely ignored by the art world (such as cosplay and creative writing). Because the community here has grown so extensively since DA began more than a decade ago, there’s a much wider variety of art to showcase.
There’s nothing but naked women and Anime in the DD’sActually, no, there isn’t. If you’re not a fan of nudes, turn on your mature filter (seriously do it). If you’re not a fan of Anime, no need to venture as far as clicking on one of the images to leave a mean comment. To say that the DD’s are comprised of only two types of images is not only incorrect but lazy.
There’s no selection process in choosing DD’s, that’s why some genres are chosen all the time
There is a selection process in place and although each CV has their own finalizing methods, the community ultimately has a lot of say in what images are featured. Some genres are featured more often than others sometimes because of how active the CV is, other times because there was nothing satisfactory to that CV to feature. If you are in love with something and you’d like for everyone to see it, suggest it as a DD to the appropriate CV or $taff member for its category. On that same token, every gallery has a moderator, so if you see a DD for Pixel art two days in a row, there’s nothing to get bent out of shape about. It would be great for every gallery to have something in the DD’s everyday to show off the creativity of our community.
If you already have a DD, you can’t get another one in the future
There’s a six-month rule for deviants who’ve received past DD’s. So to answer this myth, it’s no, you can certainly have multiple DD’s; six months must have passed in between each feature however. If you’re curious whether or not someone you’re about to suggest for a DD has had one recently you can check by typing this url into your browser: username.deviantart.com/dds (replace “username” with the person’s name)
If you ever, for any reason at all, have a problem with a DD that you feel you need to voice, do so to the CV or $taff that featured it. Do not, do not, do not leave a message on the offending image stating your disdain for it or the genre. Remember also, anyone can suggest a DD! For your convenience, here’s a list of all of the CVs and $taff who feature DD’s along with the gallery they oversee:
