Happy holidays in case you care
I just wanted to clarify on a couple of points about when I show specific support for members of the deviantART community in the form of Premium Memberships.
- I like your work a lot.
Of course this is the main point because in the end I want to support you due to your great work.
Sometimes it is mostly your recent work, usually it is practically everything you've posted on deviantART up to that specific date.
- I like you as a person.
Mostly this means that you are approachable and friendly
- You are still active.
That means you have posted work recently (approximately the last three months) and hopefully were online in within the last month.
- You are not super well-known.
I try to show support especially for artists that have not gathered a big audience (yet) so that they may use Premium Membership tools / features in order to help them expand.
These are the main criteria for me to decide whom I choose.
I'm not certain if I should do this on a regular basis, but for now this is mainly so that people who have received my support can get an impression on why I did it
All artists that have my current support are shown in the "Featured Artists" box around the middle left on my profile page.Please note that I of course cannot predict how an artist's works, visions or attitude might change. The decisions were made at that specific moment in time, so some criteria may not apply any more at a later point in time.
