News Article: Monthly TAD Newsletter - Ed. III, May 2008


NOTE: This list doesn't claim to be complete. We try to be impartial as far as this is possible, and we also constantly review suggestions from other deviants but the final decisions are made by the Team of the  TOP-Artistsdirectory (TAD) and does not necessarily reflect the overall opinion of deviantART or its Administration.

This is a continuing project to provide a database of brilliant deviantART artists. Not all categories are completed yet. We will release other parts of the list step by step. So please watch out for updates.



How to be added


:icontop-artistsdirectory:


We will regularly update the lists with new artists and maybe also new categories should the need arise. You may suggest other artists or yourself to be added to this list. Please send us a note to TOP-ArtistsDirectory with your suggestion. We will review any suggested artist and decide as a Team in accordance with the following standards:


Criteria for being a TOP Artist
  • top skills
  • top execution
  • top render quality
  • professional settings
  • fancy, inventive and imaginative concepts, themes and characters
  • original and unique style and technique
  • expression and atmosphere


What we not consider to be TOP Art
  • copied characters invented by someone else
  • paintings based on traced photos
  • colouring of other peoples works
  • plain popularity


You think you are qualified...

but you are are not listed? This can have the following reasons:
  • You have only a few pieces in your gallery.
  • You have not been a member of DeviantART for very long. (We suggest consistent input and participation at dA for approximately 6 months should be a desirable minimum requirement for this.)
  • Your work may not as yet have reached a standard that meets the above criteria in the opinion of the TAD Team.
  • We have not yet come across your gallery. All suggestions will be considered, however, by the TAD Team (see below).


You may suggest other artists, or yourself, to be added to the list at any time.

If you have a complaint, please send your complaints to TAD by note only, and we will reply to you with our honest opinion.
