For those of you who are trying to get more exposure for your work, my advice is to be very mindful of which gallery you're placing your pieces in. Many deviations I've wanted to suggest I was unable to, because they were placed in the wrong galleries. Gaining exposure can be achieved in more ways than just DDs, comment and critique other's work and you will see a response in turn. Even featuring your watcher's artwork can be a great way of saying 'thanks!' Give a little and get a little, it's all about being an active part in the community.

I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
