Art Under The Radar

Each day, hundreds of thousands of pieces of art are submitted to deviantART. As more and more artists join, create, and share their work, it becomes easy for high quality art to miss its chance to stand out and be seen.
Our new browse mode, Undiscovered, aims to bring new, high quality artwork to the foreground.

Finding Hidden Gems

Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork that has not yet drawn attention or recognition at the levels of Popular or What's Hot browse modes. Using an algorithm that identifies patterns in community behavior when curating content, Undiscovered generates a browsing experience that draws attention to creative art and talented artists that may not receive the same level of attention from other browse modes.

Please keep in mind that the algorithm that powers Undiscovered is still new and we may make changes as it grows in use.

Discover New Art Daily

Because Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork, the artwork displayed may change throughout the course of a day, frequently bringing you new art by a wide variety of artists, and giving more art and more artists the chance to be seen.

DeviantART is proud to present Undiscovered, a new Browse method designed to surface new, quality artwork that has yet to be discovered!

I prefer this as opposed to just searching new deviations... lets be honest, almost all new devs are lower quality than the ones on "undiscovered" (including mine so im not hating on anyone haha).

I've really enjoyed browsing through the undiscovered. It offers more variety than the others. I don't really understand how it works, but it's an easy way to browse a large selection of nice work.
I just noticed this new browse option today and I wanted to know more about it. This is a great idea! :]
So far , so good ! Fool Emoji-47 (Star) [V5] 
( Although I haven't received
anything from it ) Maybe I will !!!
I see some really nice things though .:D (Big Grin) 
Hmm... I gave it a go and it only seemed to show deviations submitted in the last 24 hours, so I don't really understand how it works. Honestly I wouldn't find it a surprise if just-hours-old deviations aren't discovered yet. :shrug: I'd prefer to see the ones that have gone undiscovered for at least a couple of days.

Yes. I would been active in dA in 2013 if I had known about this back in June.  A kickstarter for deviations that perform well out of the gate (i.e. the first 10 seconds) but don't get enough airtime to gain traction?  Great idea!

For full disclosure, I have a DD, two DLDs, and another deviation with over 25K views. If that's how we're defining success, I've won. I don't see it that way. I consider it my greatest achievement that the last is not fanart/mature/furry/pony/kawaii/whatsit - ha! BUT I also have deviations I would kill to get a response on that get a whole lot of zip. I've been lucky and had deviants with serious connections point at a piece I did a few times (thank you, thank you, thank you!). This is why I agree with the decision to focus on how the individual deviation performs. Are my works ever going to end up in Undiscovered?  I dunno, but I agree with the principle behind it.  I know from experience that getting a lot of eyes on a deviation is an amazing opportunity for growth.

In this huge archive it's not obvious how to find interesting, quality and conceptually attractive ides and expressions of arts and crafts of all genres.  This fills the gap between browsing and DD's in a well targeted and efficient way.   



Really curious how you guys are finding these new works every day but I think that this is such a great idea! Just stumbled upon it by accident and was amazed at how many beautiful art works are going virtually unnoticed! It's great to be able to offer these talented, lesser-known artists the support and interest that they so clearly deserve!

I'm a little worried about the algorithm you're using; at first glance, it's a good idea, but what about art thieves? Their stolen would could end up on "Undiscovered", then people think they did the work and praise it, and before you know it, an art thief is popular on DeviantART.
