Jon, not sure if you've run across this thread, but there is some discussion about a DeviantArt API...

http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/suggestions/1180776/

I threw in my 2 cents... 8-)

It looks like the DeviantART RSS feeds contain the JPG URLs. That could be promising, but a full API would be significantly better. Let me know if that progresses.

What if DF simply allowed you to specify a RSS feed (any RSS feed) as a source?

Perhaps DF could allow you to specify some specific a random value in the URL also. For example, the url could be:
http://backend.deviantart.com/rss.xml?q=favby:microUgly&limit=2&offset={rand:1:20}

The {rand:1:20} bit could be replaced by DF with a random value between 1 and 20.

I use something like this display a rand fav on my website.

(note: I used limit=2 because the feed doesn't like limit=1 for some reason.)

This is an interesting idea. It is a substantial amount of work to add a new image provider to DisplayFusion, so this isn't something I will investigate until probably version 3.2. I already have a very full roadmap.

I have added RSS image feeds to the DisplayFusion roadmap, so I'm going to lock and archive this topic in an effort to keep open topics relevant to the most recent beta versions. Thanks!
