dA Gallery Definitions: The Medium and The Message
The deviantART category tree contains galleries defined in several different ways.
dA's main Gallery headings are divided very broadly by various artistic media.  Within the galleries, some categories are further defined by the specific medium used to create the work. Others are divided by artistic styles. And still others are defined by the kind of subject matter within the piece of art.
These three kinds of categories within the galleries lead to some confusion about where certain deviations should be placed.  This distinction leads to a lot of the "overlap," or situations where a deviation may fit into more than one category.  It also means that some kinds of categorization issues and miscat issues are very cut-and-dried, while others are more subjective.  
If a gallery or category is defined based upon the medium used in the creation of the work, and a work is placed there that is outside of that medium, that is an easy-to-define misca

Vector Week: Dec 13 - 19
I had so much fun during Project Educates Vector Week I decided to extend the features to a weekly news article. Each article will feature great vector art from each sub category of the vector gallery on deviantART.
Hope you enjoy the show!
Abstract Vector art is pretty hard to describe, because usually the piece is created from the artists minds eye. Nothing has to look like what it's supposed to in fact bending the form away from the norm is the point. Remember, as free and as open as this style can be you still must use a vector based program to create your works. No raster images may be used in the piece, this is vector after all and all the regular vector rules still apply.

Animal art depicts just as the name implies, art where the main subject is an animal. Vector art consisting of cats or dogs, reptiles or bird, mamma

I will never forget how Keith's jaw dropped when I opened the package to reveal the gorgeous original... and how I teared up just a little. Thank you so much.


Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
With a record level of nominations and suggestions on an almost daily basis, it would be hard to ignore the community call to recognise such a fine example of a deviant as `snowmask. Her constant presence since the formative years of deviantART has never wavered, demonstrating a natural ability to seek out and motivate those in need.

Katie's beautifully delicate artworks are elegant and instantly recognisable due to her finely tuned creative style, a clear reflection of her personality. With a multitude of journals which are thought provoking, funny and resourceful, it's impossible not to be touched by such a bright light in our community. Congratulations Katie!

Hello, my name is Katherine...

Friends call me Katie. I am a painter, and my husband zerocomplex manages my work. I also serve as a curator and Public Relations Officer for resurgere.

Deepthroat Leakage

Wed Apr 27, 2011, 1:24 PM


Hello! A lot has happened since the last time I updated my journal, and I wish to share the news one step at a time. deviantART is still, after so many years, one of the primary places where I share finished work. Since the launch of my website at the start of the new year, I have over the past few months established a system of where to post updates of my paintings, detailed walkthroughs and works-in-progress.

This section on my website is for what goes on "behind the scenes". Archived here are walkthroughs of my paintings, which I update on a regular basis, and it is also where I'll be sharing photos of how I get my paintings ready for exhibits.

High resolution images of my works-in-progress accompanied by detailed annotations are posted exclusively on my website.

There are two very convenient ways to receive updates of "In Studio" postings via the website's resources. By selecting "art update feeds" from the top right menu located at the header, there are options for subscribing directly to RSS, or to receive RSS alerts via email.

Here is another way to follow updates of all things related to my work, as updates from my website are fed directly here and are automatically posted to the Wall. Some finished works are posted here, although not of high resolution. Simply "like" the page to stay in touch.

Finally, there's my Facebook profile, where I like to post work-in-progress images in a "teaser" fashion, in that they are the most up-to-date, but with longer intervals and much less continuity between one step and the next in the painting process. By comparison, "In Studio" is where the most complete documentation of my works-in-progress can be enjoyed, however each detailed walkthrough on my website are posted only after a painting is finished.

In other words, for those who thirst for as-soon-as-possible updates, this is the place to go. There is also plenty of sideshow entertainment, as this is pretty much the only place where I post photos of my husband Keith's delicious cooking, as well as photos of my cats Chiko and Perry getting into feline shenanigans.

Question Tiem

Have you ever tried to relive a happy experience? Was it just as good, better, or disappointing?

My husband and I experimented with this once and we have concluded that at least for us, moments should never be "chased after". So many little things come together to form a full experience, an exceedingly happy one, and it all just falls into a chain of events that almost seems orchestrated - such perfection cannot be replicated by conscious human planning, no matter how scrupulous the eye... and I'd like to think I haven't lost that particular touch.

What happened the second time was by no means bad, but it definitely "wasn't the same". Many months ago Keith brought this up with me and I learned that happy occurrences should always be cherished, and that my ambitions should turn to the future and the new, instead of awkwardly embracing a loved one from behind with both arms backwards.
