Competitions

The first of the competitions set for early this year is currently on hold, awaiting word from the organiser. Hope to get back to you with more on this soon - when I hear you'll hear!

Miscats

Any fan of vectors will know we have a big problem with miscats in the Vector gallery here on dA. You can help out by reporting any pieces you spot while browsing the gallery; and if you're friendly with someone send 'em a quick Note informing them that that raster texture, that Photoshop brush, that photographic background make their piece(s) suitable for a different Digital Art gallery ;)

You can also point them to this previous Journal entry einion.deviantart.com/journal/… if you think they might benefit from a quick brush-up on what's kewl, and what's not, for the Vector gallery on dA.

Vector Daily Deviations

The holiday season saw a huge drop in suggestions so I'll renew my call for you to submit your suggestion or suggestions to me. The more suggestions I get the more vector DDs we're likely to see.

Keep in mind these are DDs you're suggesting, so quality counts!

Suggesting Daily Deviations

:bulletblue: Send these to me by Note.
:bulletblue: Please include a thumb of the deviation or deviations.
:bulletblue: Put "DD suggestions" or something like that in the subject line.
:bulletblue: Please, only send me pieces that are in the Vector gallery!

I'd like it if you could include at least a few words about why you think it deserves to be featured; I like to know what it is you like about a choice and other members do too.

Although due to time constraints I won't respond to all your Notes suggesting DDs rest assured I will look at all you send me.

Mixed Bags

These are my monthly selections of cool/fun/wow pieces from the gallery to help highlight some of the best that the Vector gallery has to offer. Here are some of my personal favourites from this month's selection:

The 'CHINGON' Chopper by pentoolart   Hamann 599 GTB Fiorano by Cop-creations

Competitions

The first of the vector competitions coming up will be for vehicles, organised by rjonesdesign

Prizes already in line include some collectibles and mags and AR suprema Moonbeam13 has kindly provided a few more to sweeten the pot, including some subs and a tee. There will be five judges, including yours truly. All you vector vehicle artists keep your eyes peeled for more details on this and sharpen your, er, mice :D

Miscats

Still far too many of these in our beloved gallery and I regularly find mis-categorised vexels and mixed-media pieces that have been here for a while but just haven't seen yet, so some clued-up vector fan is sure to have seen 'em at some point! You guys and gals can help out by reporting any pieces you spot while browsing the gallery; if you're friendly with someone send 'em a quick Note informing them that a raster texture, that Photoshop brush, a photograph in the background or wherever make their piece(s) suitable for a different Digital Art gallery ;)

You can also point folks to this previous Journal entry einion.deviantart.com/journal/… if you think they might benefit from a quick brush-up on what's kewl, and what's not, for the Vector gallery on dA.

Vector Daily Deviations

The pace of suggestions has picked up of late, thanks all! Please keep your Notes rolling in.

It doesn't have to be something that was just posted; if you find an overlooked piece from a while ago do send it in. And it is okay to send more than one at one time if you'd like.

But remember folks, these are DDs you're suggesting so quality counts!

Education

Many of you fans of vector will know there is a big problem with miscats in the gallery here on dA. Community-wide the AR team is trying to help with this sort of thing and a big step in that direction is a new initiative headed by MistressWit, Artist Relations: Did You Know?, the first of which can be seen here

In addition if you know anyone that you think might benefit from a quick brush-up on what's kewl, and what's not, for the Vector gallery please point them to this previous Journal entry einion.deviantart.com/journal/…

Vector Daily Deviations

There aren't enough of these, are there?

Two major reasons for this:
first, I don't get nearly enough suggestions;
second, most of my time browsing the Vector gallery is spent dealing with miscats.

But there's good news - you can help with both of these (yeah, you knew there'd be work involved didn't you?!)

The first one is easy, send me more quality suggestions for DDs from the Vector gallery (see guidelines below). With the second please read this.

Suggesting Daily Deviations

:bulletblue: Send these to me by Note.
:bulletblue: Do not suggest your own work.
:bulletblue: Please, only send me pieces that are in the Vector gallery!
:bulletblue: Put "DD suggestions" or something like that in the subject line and include at least a few words about why you think it deserves to be featured.
:bulletblue: Don't forget a link to the deviation :D

Although due to time constraints I won't respond to your Notes suggesting DDs rest assured I will look at all you give me.

Miscats and you
A day or so ago I was viewing the first browse page of the Vector gallery and decided to screenshot it and post the picture to my Scraps. Take a look:



Why am I telling you this? Well, as it says this is a pretty typical day for the Vector gallery and as any fan of vectors can see there are quite a few miscategorised pieces there. Some feature a mixture of vector and raster elements (pixel-based textures, Photoshop brushwork, photos), some are just a bit of vector work thrown in on a raster background, while some aren't vectors at all.

As most of you will know by now the submission menu has just been overhauled news.deviantart.com/article/29… (this hasn't changed the gallery structure, just the submission process). As the article says it should make a difference to some galleries in helping reduce or eliminate miscats, but for Digital Art > Vector the core problem remains unchanged and unfortunately I don't think it will help us.

"So how can I help?" I hear you say. Well I'm glad you asked.

We already have a procedure for reporting miscats which some of you use and that's great; I, we, appreciate it when it's used. But I think a more grass-roots approach might end up being more help to the community in the long run. So here's what I'd like you to do: if you see a piece in the Vector gallery that's obviously a miscat then leave a polite comment or Note suggesting the deviant come and read this.

This way hopefully new or inexperienced users can be brought up to speed before the formal relocation process has to happen, which is good for your Gallery Director and much less hassle for each deviant.
Images created in vector-based programs are suitable for the Vector gallery. Images containing photographic or raster-based elements should not be submitted to the Vector gallery.

:bulletred: No Photoshop or PSP brushes
:bulletred: No photographs of any kind, including backgrounds
:bulletred: No raster-based textures of any kind

If you are using Photoshop or PaintShopPro:

:bulletred: No filters

Also, images that have been filtered to resemble vector-based art should not be placed here (this includes images created with LiveTrace and other similar auto-tracing programs - you can use them in the creation of a piece but the entire artwork cannot be simply an automated image; that's not what the Vector gallery is about).

Vector art consists of creating paths and points in a program such as Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDRAW or Flash. These programs keep track of the relationships between these points and paths. Every time the image is scaled, the paths are regenerated: this creates images that are infinitely scalable without degradation. Deviations that do not meet these requirements will be removed without notice. Place those images in the appropriate Digital Art section to avoid this.

If you need clarification on anything about this don't be shy, Note me.
