July YBW

19 July 2018 - 03:18 AM

Every month, TDA does a 'YBW' award. For it, people choose one graphic they made in that calendar month (can be any graphic - request, challenge, for fun, whatever) and post it. After the month ends, we put up polls where you'll compete with other artists of your rank to bring home the month's YBW. We also run a 'YBW: Most Improved' every month, which artists of all ranks can enter to prove that they've improved a lot between the previous month and the current one.
 
Going forward, entries to YBW will work a little differently. Everyone will post their entries in this thread, regardless of rank - there will still be rank-specific polls, but that'll be something that the DA mods just do when we put the polls up. If you decide to change your entry, you should still edit the post rather than make a new one. (You can make an additional post for Most Improved, though!)
 
Some reminders:

  • Only a series of up to 50 icons is allowed. They must have an overarching theme and be cohesive.
  • Graphics made using tutorials, psds, etc. cannot be entered as they are technically not your own work.
  • Canvases cannot be more than 1000x1000 - if necessary, you're welcome to use thumbnails.
  • Your 'Most Improved' entry must be your YBW entry from last month and this month.
  • Remember to post the image code with your entry!

And... that's that. :P  Go forth and enter YBW!  :hyper:

July Featured Artist Voting

02 July 2018 - 07:51 PM

Please vote for July's Featured Artist! Nominations are listed below.
 
 

Artist name: Lady Plantagenet
Link to gallery: +here
Why are you nominating this artist (how have they been active this month, how have they improved, are they still trying to improve etc etc)?
 
Andrea deserves to be FA this month because her style is extremely consistent and one all on it's own branch! +it's just beautiful and elegant! Not only are her graphics amazing, but she continues to strive for making a difference on the site where she can and helping others along the way when they need it. 
Andrea 100% deserves to be this months FA, not only for the reasons already stated, but because she's just fantastic! :hug:

 

Artist name: Jellybean Jones //Sammi
Link to gallery: here+
Why are you nominating this artist (how have they been active this month, how have they improved, are they still trying to improve etc etc)? Sammi is really showing a dedication to creating graphics and improving them. Beyond that she actively tries to support and encourage other artists. I see a burgeoning style in her graphics and have noticed participation around the site. She shows serious potential and an abundant effort to improve and I think she will go far and should be recognized for all of her hard work to date.
