The Winter Olympics are over and we did pretty good up here in the Great White North!
So it's time to return to searching out and bringing my watchers the weird and the wonderful in whatever categories interest you or frankly....... ah....... float your boat!
Sooooo unless I slip on the ice (will this bloody polar vortex ever go away); it's back to business!
To make the most comprehensive and best favourites display on Deviant Arts! Showcasing the very best of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Cosplay, Portraiture and all things cute and cuddly!
Plus in the Adult realm all the very best (or at least most interesting) of DID, Gay, Yuri, Pinups, Transgender, Fetish or anything else that catches my amusement and/or interests!
HOW THEY'RE PICKED!
For smaller sites I'll go in and pick out not just the best; but examples from all the artist's various genres and time periods. I'll generally limit this to half a dozen pic's but if necessary; I'll repeat this in more than one Fav folder until you can get a pretty good overview of his/her works! Then check back once or twice a year and update as necessary.
For larger sites with numerous artwork, interest or volume of art; I'll generally start with the oldest (which are most likely to be archived and frankly need the love) and pick out one or two good examples from each page and work my way forward. For sites with exceptional numbers or constant updates; I may do up to six or seven each in multiple folders. Then come back every two or three months just to catch up.
This way, you will be continually exposed to the best of the best in whatever category you're interested in and a wider assortment of viewer's may discover these wonderful creations before they vanish. Rather than being buried 90 pages down in a bloated favourites collection where nobody will ever see them.
HOW THEY'RE ORGANIZED!
Everything of a general or family nature will get posted to the main fav's page first. As new stuff get's added, the oldest will be moved to the individual collections. Fav's of a more adult nature will get posted immediately to the adult collections.
As for the collections; those at the top are of a more general or family friendly nature. This way families and kids can safely surf through my fav's without hitting a raft of those blank DA placeholders. In fact, they may never even notice them.
THE INDIVIDUAL COLLECTIONS!
FANTASY AND SCI-FI DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS - Pretty much as the name implies. Mostly fantasy and mostly family friendly although there's quite a few bare-breasted elf's in there as well! (Hey, don't blame me, blame the elf's!) In two folders.
FANTASY AND SCI-FI 3D, CG, PHOTO, FLASH - The same as above except in 3D and CG formats. There's also the odd Photo manipulation and Flash animation as well.
COSPLAY AND PORTRAITURE - All the best of the best. 90% family friendly. Adult stuff is further down.
CUTIES, COUPLES AND FAMILY - This is where all the cute stuff goes. You know, the sort of drawings you see and immediately go, "Oh my God, how Cute! I've got to fav this!" The title is pretty explanatory.
MORE CUTIES, COUPLES AND PINUPS - Similar to the above except the cuties are a little more adult or in lingerie. Pinups also go here as well.
COMICS, CARTOONS AND PARODIES - As a lot of humour tends to be adult in nature, I'd say this folder is about half family friendly and half adult. In addition to comedy, there are some nice little cartoons and a lot of parodies in there as well.
DAMSELS IN DISTRESS DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS - Pretty much as the name implies. This is where the adult stuff starts. Some lovely drawings and paintings in here if you like the genre. If you don't, well...., just don't watch it! In six folders as the original was just getting too damned big! (Hey, there's a reason they call this site Deviant Arts!)
DAMSELS IN DISTRESS 3D, CG AND PHOTO - Basically the same as the above except the artwork is in 3D and CG formats. There's also stuff from Second Life, Photo Manip's and adult photography as well. In four folders for the same reasons as above.
TG, TF, YURI AND BOYS IN DISTRESS - Here you'll find everything from gay, yuri (girl love), crossdressing, boys in bondage, adult babies, age regression, transformations (human to animal, boy to girl, etc.), spanking and anything adult that doesn't fit in above. It's quite a variety! Again, as above, if you don't like it, don't look. That's why I put it at the bottom. In three folders.
DID, TG, TF or YURI STORYLINES - As above but in multi-posting storylines. More than 5 or 6 in any category will go here. Once again, if you don't like them, don't look! In two folders.
Anyhoo, that's the way I've set up my fav's. I hope you like it. The main intention is not only to make it easier for you to find what you like, but more importantly to highlight some of these wonderful little gem's on the site that may have been over looked or buried and give them a second chance at life. Let me know if it's working?
