Hello.
I'll give this thread a go, and see how it pans out.

As you know, the art portal mods are lazy, and overlook the occasional decent entry.

There are also times where they feel some artists have had plenty of pieces on the front page, whilst other artists may require some showcasing to perk their spirits up.

========================================
=============

This is where you come in.

I want you to dump a link to pictures that you think should go on the front page.
These can be either fairly recent pics, or pics that you've favorited in the past which you think others may get a kick out of.

Rules
- Don't link to your own artwork, since this thread isn't for self-promotion. Any posts that do this will be removed.

Guidelines
- Aim for artists who don't get many opportunities on frontpage, not just your favourite ones.
- If you go for a popular artist, make sure that the particular piece is AMAZINGLY STELLAR compared to their previous submissions.
- Have a look through oldish stuff, since they've probably been overlooked. Plus we can blow the cobwebs off.
- Try not to go for adult stuff, since you'll scare people off!
- Don't worry about scores. You can uncover some proper gems this way.

Alright, good luck!

Ok I'd like to give it a shot. This piece is rather new but I think it has some merit
Dwight Schrute by judio30
Although it was only released a few days ago, I think that this is one of the artist's best pieces. it is a pretty nice example of progression in a persons skill. It also serves as a simple boon since it is of a character from a popular tv show which might help bring in more views and votes

Fungasm was only ever front paged once.

His newer stuff is much more awesome than the one front paged piece. This in particular stood out.

Sweet, Something I suggested got FP'd Hellz yeah!
This is almost as good as getting my own work up there!

Ok not really, but still.

Actually it does feel pretty nice t help another artist get some exposure

really like this idea... il try do a list every weekend or something if this is going to be a regular thing...

its a shame you cant see if the users art has ever been front paged unless you go into each picture and check... but that's a good way of checking the increasing *or poor* quality of all the artwork.

as good as an idea this is... i have tried to collect names / pieces for front page, however I find that you guys are already choosing the best ones without help. so i do think this sort of thing is sadly void.

I think this piece should have a bit more attention. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

I second this. That's like... whoa... Mind-boggling detail. Must have taken a long time.

Darnell has no erection so I don't want to see this fp'd.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

Nah, that's not true.
I really enjoy his stuff, and I probably avoid him more than I should because I think we FP him too many times. Clearly that's wrong.

Oh cool right here's a fucking reason to visit the portal regularly.

Right here's a motherfucking shame that is not basking in the love of a front page it deserves.

He has been frontpaged a couple of times already though, last one a month ago.

Laufman has two FPs, but I think this was better than either.

Izzy-A has two, but I think this is deseving of more attention.

Morgadeshou has a Daily 3rd a Daily 5th
and a Daily Feature, but I didn't see any FPs. I thought this one had already been on the Front Page.

Koel-Art has a Daily 4th and a Daily 5th, (again, I didn't see any FPs) I suggest this.

I don't think JessePants has had anything on the front page; I think this should be.

Now you put it like that, I can see why I'm more swayed towards to profile pic.
I'll still hold fire, otherwise it's the dog pic.
