Digital Art - AnimationGalleries Month
What is animation?
Animation is the illusion of movement created from the quick sucession of static images with minimal differences between them. Today there is a great variety of animation techniques that include traditional animation (a sucession of frames, drawn digitally or traditionally), stop motion (photographs of real life objects), 3D animation (created with computer software), rotoscoping (tracing a live action sequence, frame by frame) and a large etcetera.
The Digital Art > Animation gallery is intended for animations of all kinds, as long as they were made with digital mediums and they're NOT in Flash or video format (usually in GIF format).
If the animation was made with traditi
Thiefo, y u no DD? :cI'm finally taking some time to get through aaaaalll my notes, I was getting a little behind but I'm slowly getting there! My current message count is 0 so yay! ... nevermind I just got another note.
Anyway, sorting my notes out today I figured I could show you something you might find interesting.
NO! That's not it! you dirty pigs....
I was talking about this: http://sta.sh/0pffi5ytnod
What is it? ... yup! those are unselected suggestions.
As most of you already know, I like to take the suggestions I don't select and feature them in any other way, one of them is through my Digitally Delicious series and I also share a fair amount of them in tumblr. To keep myself organized, I keep a sta.sh document with all these deviations and I'm constantly feeding it while I'm checking my notes. It's a very primitive way to keep t

Celebrating Diversity #36The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to share deviations outside of our area of comfort and explore art we usually don't see. So today, I decided to venture into the Stock Photography gallery and you know what I discovered? That there are some stock photographs, which by nature are intended for other artists to use, as reference or for derivative works, etc. that are truly masterpieces just by themselves!

Digital Art - Drawings and PaintingsGalleries Month
The Digital Art - Drawings and Paintings gallery is one of the fastest growing galleries here on DeviantArt. Within the gallery, members of the community will discover a wide variety of styles as the possibilities for Digital Drawings and Paintings are endless. So what exactly are Digital Drawings and Paintings? Is there even a difference between the two? Well, in this article I will explain exactly what Digital Drawings and Paintings are as well as why they are indeed different.
Digital Drawings and Paintings Defined
Let's begin with something easy such as defining what is considered Digital art. Digital art is any artwork that is created using digital software and/or tools. In the simplest of terms, your art is considered to be digital if it was created using a device such as your computer, digital tablet (ie: iPad), a Nintendo 3DS, or even your cellular phone! Digital artists often will use tools to
Gallery Descriptions: Anthro [ Digital / Trad. ] Gallery Descriptions
Digital anthropomorphic art in a three-dimensional form or appearance. Art that was created using 3D software.
Animals: Digital Drawings featuring Anthropomorphic animals as the main focus. Comics: Digital comics that show a single page from a comic series or strip where the main focus is on Anthropomorphic characters, settings, themes, etc. Fantasy & Mythology: Digital Drawings that depict supernatural or magical themes often relating to legend, spirits, deities, and enchanted anthropomorphic creatures.Inanimate Objects: Digital drawings featuring inanimate anthropomorphic objects. An inanimate object has no life bearing parts. For example utensils, a teddy bear, snow globe etc. Macabre & Horr
Gallery Descriptions: Anthro Art [ Types ]Gallery Descriptions
The unique thing about Anthro art is that it can take different shapes, sizes, and forms! There is no "right" or "wrong" way to draw or portray Anthro art because like fantasy art, they do not exist so there is nothing to "reference" them off from. Only our imagination.
Here are some features of animals that have been anthropomorphized!
Objects like fruit, cars, toasters, etc. that have been anthropomorphized!

PE Gallery Descriptions: NonfictionPE Gallery Descriptions
Literature > Prose > Nonfiction
What belongs in the nonfiction gallery?
Loosely speaking, nonfiction is anything true. This includes stories from your childhood, journalistic accounts of what's happening in the world today, and opinions, even when they're about fictional topics.
So writing about why you think Loki x horse is the best ship ever could go to the Editorial gallery, but actually writing a story about the birth of Sleipnir belongs in (fan) fiction.
The Editorial gallery is a place to submit pieces that take a definite side. A review will let the reader decide whether or not they want to look into something, but works submitted here say 'this is my opinion, and here's why it's a good opinion.' A persuasive essay can be an editorial, too.Academic Essays is pretty self-expl
PE: deviantART related Gallery - Part 1[Galleries Month]
The deviantART related gallery is one that isn't limited to a certain style or medium. Any kind of art that can be found in a specific gallery, can also be found here. This explain the great diversity among this gallery, but also makes it difficult to explain what dAr is with one sentence. Beside that dAr comes with a few unique galleries that offer artworks to customize your experience within deviantART. It's a community based gallery.
These two articles Part 1 & Part 2 give you an overview of the single categories where you can find and submit deviantART related art to.
The following sub-categories have been left out, as these have been open either just for a limited time to promote a new feature, to accept submissions for a contest or have been 'staff only' galleries.
This gallery was created to promote the (back then) up

Gallery Descriptions Month - The RoundupGalleries month
Galleries Description month was full of epic articles and a lot of hard work went into each and every one of them courtesy of the Community Volunteers. This article is a roundup of everything published during the last month here at projecteducate and hopefully has helped a lot of you when it comes to understanding the descriptions of the galleries here and categorising your work. Huge thanks go to all involved who made this past month a success! We also held a A Contest of which the results will posted within the next week. Well done to all who entered - judging has commenced!

Discussion 13 ~ Mastering CompositionArguably the most important challenge that faces every artist is that of mastering composition. Artists spend their entire life experimenting with different compositional tools in order to achieve desired effects. Throughout the academic history of art various books and theories have been written about principles and elements of design. The following list is not comprehensive and may vary from other lists that are out there, but I attempted to compile the most useful list of compositional ideas that I could with photographic examples of each of the ideas. Sometimes as artist we can spend so much time on technique and subject matter, that the basic composition of the piece we are trying to create gets overlooked. These powerful compositional tools not only help us to create more cohesive and complex art but they also help us to speak about art. Using the universal language of design, we can communicate with other artist in a seamless and direct way. My hope with this article is th

Gallery Descriptions: Fractal ArtGalleries month
A fractal is a never ending pattern, self similar on every scale. Or almost self similar. And, quite obviously, fractal art is art created with fractals
Fractal art is not drawn or painted by hand, but created with fractal generating software (for example, Apophysis, Mandelbulb or Ultra Fractal). Basically, it is created by calculating fractal objects and rendering them as still images or animations. The rendered images can be further modified using other graphic programs, such as Photoshop or Gimp. Also, the artwork may incorporate some non-fractal images, mainly but not only in manipulations.
This gallery is for fractal artworks with minimal or no post-work other than title, frame and watermark. In a few words, only works that are either raw output from a fractal generating program or have some minimal post-work (for example, brightness and color adjustments).

Don't forget, great design IS ART!

Gallery Descriptions: Still Life PhotosGalleries month
There are four sub-categories to the Still Life Photography Gallery here on deviantART. There are plenty of places to categorise your work correctly and if you're not sure where to go then there's always the last resort of the 'Other' Category. For more information check out the Still Life Project Educate Gallery.
Still Life involves attention to detail and careful preparation in setting up various, inanimate subject matters to photograph. Things that are often taken into account are composition, lighting, inclusion of props and more. In this sense, Still Life is very much controlled. The main aspect of Still Life to remember is that nothing living should be within the photograph itself.

Lit: Characters and SettingsGallery Descriptions Month
Have you ever wandered through the Literature Gallery here on dA and wondered what the Characters & Settings sub category was for? Then ask no more. It should almost be obvious what goes in here, but let's play dumb for a minute.
The Characters & Settings gallery is NOT for your prose, poetry or scripts. Finished stories or poems don't belong here. They belong in their own categories. Here, we should find character information. Well what is character information:
Characters Sheets. Any character sheet that you've completed for your character(s) and would like to share. Blank sheets should be submitted to the Resources & Stocks > Tutorials > Writing gallery.Character Profiles or Biographies. You wrote a short description or history for your character but it won't be included in the final cut of your story.
Gallery Descriptions: Street + PhotojournalismGalleries Month
Take part in our Gallery Descriptions Month Contest!
Taking a photograph of something in the street (or the street itself) does not automatically make it 'Street Photography'. Street Photography is about humanity, about people in context. People involved in candid, unposed and unstaged situations in public places, with no or minimum post-processing, is what defines Street Photography. This is not to say that people automatically make the piece a Street photograph. Photographing humanity (and its behaviour) in its natural habitat and surroundings, exploring the relationships between individuals and their surroundings, and emphasising the human presence separates Street Photography from other categories like People & Portraits or Urban & Rural. The fact that Street Photography is unstaged means that we focus on the 'every day life' of hu

Artisan Craft and Copyright LawArtisan Craft and Copyright Law
As a Community Volunteer I spend a lot of time pouring through the Artisan Crafts galleries looking for art that deserves a bigger audience. I dig through every little hidden corner of the galleries looking at every type of craft, made by everyone from the most watched members to the day old newbies. And every time I do this, I have to double check it all for originality.
My time doing this had shed light on a massive problem inherent in the AC galleries: copyright violation
Now, I'm not talking about the obvious I-stole-your-picture-and-uploaded-it violations. I'm talking about something much more subtle, to the point it feels like most of the perpetrators don't actually realise they're doing it. I'm often about to give someone a DD, until I read their description and find it completely devoid of credit. Rather than getting a site-wide feature, these artists end up on my blacklist instead. It all boils dow
Digital Art - Mixed MediaGalleries Month
What is Mixed Media?
Digital Mixed Media refers to deviations that have been created using combination of at least two DIGITAL art forms: digital painting, airbrushing, 3D objects, fractals, photographs, vectors, etc. There is a misconception that this category is meant for artworks combining both traditional and digital techniques, however this is not true, as Traditional Art also has its own Mixed Media sub-category. In the case of an artwork created using both digital and traditional techniques, it's up to the artist to decide in which category it should go.
Mixed Media focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms.
