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.

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.

When Whales Fly - A Feature

Fri Aug 29, 2014, 12:00 AM


D R E A M S by tincek-marincek

"In dreams everything is possible... you may look at the sunrise, but at the same time there is a night above you. Most distant planets can become closest ones. You may run on the water and fly like a bird. World can become opposite, where sea animals start to fly and breathe the air. It's a place where your fantasy and imagination becomes free."  - tincek-marincek

Galleries Month


Hello and welcome to the Fan Art section of the galleries description month :wave:  Basically, I'm here to give you a play by play of how the Fan Art sub categories are structured and what belongs in them.  On August 30th, STelari will be giving you a guide to Traditional Art and Fan Art miscategorizations and Gwendolyn12 will be giving you a guide to Anime/Manga and Fan Art miscategorizations, so I will not delve too deeply into those here.  So let's delve into the wonderful world of Fan Art!

What is Fan Art?
Fan Art is the Level 1 category found on the category tree.  Fan Art is currently defined as art containing copyrighted characters or concepts.  This basically means art of characters, creatures, locations, items, etc that are under copyright and were NOT originally created by you.  But the word concepts is also important here; characters created for a specific fandom also have a home in Fan Art, since they build on the existing copyrighted world, concepts and ideas.  Fan Art has also recently begun allowing art of bands and celebrities as it is art done by their fans, so it does make sense to house them in this category :nod:

What are the main subcategories and why are they set up this way?
I will be the first to say it: Fan Art's layout is not intuitive.  But I'll do my best to explain.  After selecting Fan Art as a submission category, you are brought to the following menu, which I call the level 2 categories:
:bulletblue:Anthro
:bulletblue:Cartoons and Comics
:bulletblue:Digital Art
:bulletblue:Manga and Anime
:bulletblue:Skins
:bulletblue:Traditional Art
:bulletblue:Wallpaper

These subcategories are the media/genre in which the piece was created. So to go into a more detailed break down:

:bulletblue:Anthro: Fan Art created in the style of anthropomorphic art (animals/objects having human qualities).  All Sonic Fan Art belongs here, for example, or Fan Art of your favourite character as a werewolf or what have you.

:bulletblue:Cartoons and Comics: Fan Art drawn in the style of Western comics and cartoons.  So Fan Art emulating the style of Marvel Comics or Disney belongs here.

:bulletblue:Digital Art: Fan Art created using digital software that does not fit into Anthro, Comics/Cartoons, Anime/Manga, Skins, or Wallpapers.  Digital software being programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp, MS Paint, Paint Tool Sai, etc.  Realistic Fan Art created digitally would most likely end up here.

:bulletblue:Manga and Anime: Fan Art drawn in the style of Eastern comics/manga and cartoons/anime.  Art emulating the styles of Studio Ghibli or Sailor Moon, for example belongs here.

:bulletblue:Traditional Art: Fan Art created using traditional media such as paints, pencils, pens, ink, markers, pastels, crayons, chalks etc.  Computer programs are used to create minor adjustments only or not at all!

:bulletblue:Wallpaper: Fan Art created to be used as desktop backgrounds for your computer.  These tend to come in a variety of standard desktop sizes for easy use.

Level 2 Examples:
League of Legends - beware the tall grass by vesner The Master Ball by Gabasonian Protect Our Master!!! by poibuts The untouchable hunter by polarityplus King's Armour by Kinko-White KILLA MOVES RYUKO - Kill La Kill by Eddy-Shinjuku

Level 2A categories
:star:Anthro, Comics and Cartoons and Anime and Manga have level 2 bonus categories after their selection: traditional or digital.  Since these three are stylistic, the choice for digital or traditional denotes the media used.:star:

:star:Likewise, Digital and Traditional have further breakdowns by media to choose from.  For Traditional Art these choices are: Drawings (work done in pencils, chalks, pens, etc) and Paintings (work done in water colours, oils, acrylics, etc).  
For digital the list is a bit more hefty: 3-Dimensional art (art sculpted in 3D programs like zbrush), Drawings (digital work simulating traditional drawing methods (cell shaded work and sketches typically end up here), Other (work containing both traditional and digital media OR digital work that fits no other level 2A category), Painting and Airbrushing (digital work simulating traditional painting techniques), Vector (digital art created in vector programs containing only vector (infinitely scalable) elements), and Vexel (digital art containing a mix of vector and other digital techniques).:star:

Final Level Categories
These are the last categories that you will have to choose from when submitting Fan Art to dA.  Did the character you drew come from a movie, a book, a game, etc?  These sub-categories tell your audience what your Fan Art is of.

:bulletgreen:Books & Novels: Fan Art of characters, concepts, places, creatures from books, novels, short stories, comics, web comics, manga, or fan fiction belongs here.  Fan Art of Terry Pratchett's Discworld, or Marvel's Dr. Strange or Tolkien's Silmarillion or the comic Lumberjanes for example, go here.

:bulletgreen:Games: Fan Art of characters, concepts, places, creatures, from games; this ranges from table top games to card games to video games and everything in between.  Fan Art of Dungeons and Dragons, Legend of Zelda, Magic the Gathering, Angry Birds for example, belong here.

:bulletgreen:Other: Fan Art that does not fit the other categories belongs here.  Fan Art of celebrities not in a character role, or of a song or any other fan art that does not fit would go here.

:bulletgreen:TV & Movies: Fan Art of characters, concepts, places, creatures from television series, anime series, movies, docudramas, etc goes here.  So Fan Art of Disney Movies, BBC's Sherlock, Spirited Away, the Simpsons, for example, go here.

I hope this makes the Fan Art category make more sense for everyone :nod:  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

In the Stock-Light: cbidgie

Fri Aug 29, 2014, 12:00 AM
Welcome to the weekly "In The Stock-Light" feature series.
This series is all about featuring stock providers in our community! Each week we will be exploring the galleries of different stock and resource providers.

If you know of a stock provider whom you'd like to see featured, please send me a note titled: "In The Stock-Light Suggestion."

For the beginning of this series, I will be focusing on providers who have been on dA one year or less, or have less than 20k pageviews. Keep in mind that each stock provider may have a slightly different set of rules regarding the use of their stock. By downloading and using their stock, you agree to abide by their terms of use. Remember to follow them as per each individual provider's instructions.
