Gallery Month


Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week! :la:

Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.
Since this Gallery has 2 different main categories the Gallery Overview is split in 2 articles.

In my article I will explain you our Digital Media category including the sub-categories. The Traditional Media category will be explained later by Gwendolyn12!

However,
What is Anime & Manga?

Lets see...
Anime is based of the word Animation. These are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animations. When you talk about an Animation in Manga style. That's Anime.
But what is Manga? With Manga you mainly mean a comic book created in Japan. But this word is used for regular drawings as well.

Digital Art

The Anime & Manga category /Digital Media/ is the home of Manga styled artworks created with art softwares such as Easy Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop, Manga studio, MMD, Render, etc.


3D

These art is created with a 3-Dimensional Art software such as MMD [Miku Miku Dance] and Render.

Star Skipper by FunkyBunnies

Unfortunately, most of the category are Fan Art miscats. Please be aware that The Anime & Manga category is for original Art only. That means the 3-Dimensional Art category is for your original characters.

Copyrighted characters such as Miku Hatsune, Kaito, etc. from Vocaloid belong to Fan art > 3-Dimensional Art



Drawings

Drawings are artworks that start as sketch. The Artist have to build their way up to the final drawing, through linearting and coloring.

Manga (Comics)

The category Manga (Comics) is for various manga stories created by hobbylist Mangakas and a few professional ones as well.

Manga (Comics) > Pages & Panels
"Pages & Panels" is for a long/short story Manga and for single panels.

Manga (Comics) > Strips
"Strips" are mangas that contain one-shot comics and various four-panel yonkoma.

Potion of flight by Deevad Knite Ch5: Beta pages 46-54 by yuumei
Chrome's Little Bird 2 by Jon-Lock PT SxS - Chapter 0 by Tyshea



Oekaki

Oekaki (お絵描き?) (お: O = Formal prefix, 絵: E = picture, 描き: KAKI = to draw) is a Japanese term used to describe the act of drawing a picture.

Paintings

Digital art paintings are freeform artworks that start out of a random colorful drawing without a sketch and lineart.

Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygons, all of which are based on mathematical expressions, to represent images in computer graphics.

Rant: Self-Harm Selfies?

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2014, 5:57 PM
The opinions in this (short) rant are my own and you don't have to agree. If you do, thanks!
--

You know how some people tend to post pics of self-harm over the internet, like here on dA? I don't mean drawings of that type of thing; drawings don't physically hurt people and if you don't draw it and go 'lol look, cutting', you're good. I mean actual photos of their cuts or burn marks. Selfies where you're holding up your bloody arm, or photos where you say 'look what I did last night' in the description. What is that really proving? Most of the people I know who have a serious issue with self-harm are ashamed of it, and even if they can stand to talk about it, they don't want their suffering displayed all over the internet in cell phone pictures. It's not helping you get better, and it's not helping others who go through the same thing you do.

It kinda makes you look like you're proud of what you're doing to yourself, when most would like nothing more than to have their problem and addiction go away. Stop it. That doesn't belong on deviantART anyway. Those pictures aren't going to get you help. Talk to someone. Try to get real assistance and not just attention.
