...A sure-fire way to get something of yours elected "Daily Deviation" is to submit nudity.
Now, I'm not going to start preaching against the whole boob thing. I know there's the whole "it's tasteful, art is not pornographic, etc" argument and surprisingly that's a view I understand and can agree with.
But whoever's in charge of making these selections is making it a little too obvious. I don't visit dA every single day. Sometimes I even go weeks without thinking to check it. But lately, it seems to never fail. I can always scroll down to see the "Daily Deviations" section and, 99% of the time, I can find tits. Are we really supposed to believe these pieces of "artwork"* are being selected purely for their artistic qualities? Personally, I don't buy it.
*While I acknowledge that nudity can be tasteful and artistic, I have never really believed mere photographs should fall into the artistic category - and no, black and white doesn't cut it. At least open Photoshop and add some lens flare to them bitches.
