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.

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.

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

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.

Hahaha! The gif of Celty scratching her helmet made me laugh.

This was really helpful! I didn't know what oekaki was (and it drove me nuts, cuz I encounter the word fairly often), and I wasn't fully sure what vectors entailed.

I'll look forward to the traditional art article! Thanks for putting these together!

Chibis would go into the anime/manga category right? Or are they better somewhere else? :meow:

As long as they're not copyrighted, then they go to fanart <3

You mean the anime/manga category. If they're not copyrighted, it isn't fan art. :XD:

Yup. Chibis (if not based on a character from TV/Movie/etc.Fanart) belong in M&A then are divided according to their medium (Digital or Traditional).

:lovesquee: Oooo! Thank you ever so much for taking the time to explain the differences. I always feel so lost when trying to figure out which category to submit my digital art to, and this journal will definitely help me out a lot in the future!

And I'm so happy to see that you included a fantasy landscape example in the painting category! My artwork is similar in the sense that I usually paint a small anime person in a large landscape, and up until now, I've always filed them under 'digital art > landscapes & scenery' because they never seemed to fit in with any of the manga/anime paintings that were listed as examples. But now I know that they are indeed acceptable for the manga/anime digital art paintings category~! Thank you so much for setting my mind at ease! :heart:

Thank you, this journal is amazingly helpful.
But there's a thin line between Paintings and Drawings in my opinion.
I guess most of the time Paintings don't have the line art showing that much?

Paintings can have "lineart" shown. The only different is the process of drawings and paintings.
Drawings are done as sketch > lineart > colors. Paintings are freeform drawings. You just start coloring your picture. No sketch and no lineart. The artist can of course make darker borders around the character so it looks like lineart.

When you look at the final picture, it is often hard to tell if the picture is a painting or drawing. Because most of them look a like. Only the process is different but the pictures can look a like.
However, there are a few artists who make it clear that their picture is a painting or drawing. I featured some of this pictures. To show a clear different between drawings and paintings. :P
