To be honest, Idk why it got it either. I DID put a lot of effort on this but its just a chibi. But DDs go around for various reasons, I suppose. A friend of mine's cute lil pixel drawing even got a DD!
I was slightly afraid I would have to fend off people giving virulent answers of: "you're just hatin'!!", but I'm glad to see that I've got none of that, and even a reply from the artist herself.
Thank you for taking the time to do so. I'm glad people still can speak their minds, as long as it's done tastefully and respectfully.
To further emphasize my point, only your gallery has MANY pieces that I personally like better than the one that was featured (and that, I think, show more work AND originality. It's really curious, lately I've been disagreeing with a lot of DDs that aren't as exceptionnal as they really should be!, and more on the "generic" side.
I was afraid you'd get that too and I'm very glad you didn't~
You couldn't be anymore correct! Even though I was ecstatic to see this as a DD. I looked at the other DDs around it and...it just didn't fit in!! Had me very curious, myself. And yes, yes, there are other pics I put much more effort in and made me think. 'Why didn't my x pic or y pic get it instead?'
I was actually pretty sure lots of other people saw this and thought 'Wtf is that doing as a DD??'
This now drags me on to the point that it bothers me when a cute simple picture I make gets more recognition than an advanced picture that took me a lot more time to make. But that happens a lot on this site, so I don't blame you having opposing thoughts on recent DDs. DA has gotten a lot stranger by itself!
Thank you very much again! Was good to hear your view. n n
