Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

I will be making a series of lotteries to celebrate my art book, which will be printed in a limited number and you can only get it until September 20 :D

So until September 20 i will also make point lotteries :D So there will be more chances of winning. Also the winner of the previous lotteries are not eligible to win a second time (although it's highly unlikely for the same person to win twice

PE: Anime/Manga - Digital Art

Fri Aug 29, 2014, 3:00 AM by cinyu:iconcinyu:

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!

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.


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 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.

Chrome's Little Bird 2 by Jon-Lock PT SxS - Chapter 0 by Tyshea


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.


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.
