Film and Animation community - Help us decide!Hello Deviants!Film and Animation community - Help us decide! by kingmancheng
TimberClipse and myself have been working on a new gallery structure for a while. We have agreed there is far too many categories in there and too often work gets submitted in the wrong place. It doesn't help as well that sometimes subject matter can cross a grey area and it could technically belong in a few sub-categories!
So what we would like to do is present to you all a couple of ideas we have had for a new structure. We want to streamline the process and make it easier for you to find a category. Especially as a lot of categories on there have roughly a further 8-10 extra sub-categories! So as it stands our film and animation gallery has more categories than I can count!
However it's all well and good what we think is good but at the end of the day this is for you guys so all your feedback is important to us. Please leave us a comment with which you prefer, and any other comments you have! We are looking forward to hearing what you have to say about o

We asked some of your CV's from the communityrelations team to share their insight to a couple of questions around Art History...
Who is your favourite artist, from any period in History?
I have a few; for the more historical side, I love John William Waterhouse and Sandro Botticelli. For more current trends, I love the manga artist Kaori Yuki. - Lyricanna
Tough question because I have many many favourites. So just to pick one of my many heroes, I love Quentin Blake, I grew up with his illustrations and he has touched so many hearts, especially with his works for Roald Dahl. - kingmancheng
I've always been fascinated Salvador Dali and the Surrealists - DistortedSmile
My favorite artist is without a doubt Jacques Louis David. - Mrs-Durden

Well, it is Valentine's Day. How is this related to Valentine's Day? Maybe because the mini-version of is still goofy looking, but with a bit extra cute. And cute things, love, blahblahblah.
Forum Features #52 - January: Happiness!Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of DeviantArt's beloved forumers!Forum Features #52 - January: Happiness! by 3wyl
Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article.
The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!
Featured Forumer of the Month: CouchyCreature.

Got a Film and Animation Daily Deviation suggestion?
Note me with your suggestion and if you wish a little comment on what you think about the piece!
I have a feature film/animation in development, and I want to be part of the Film In Progress articles! Where do I sign up?
Just take a quick look at this fav.me/d5n42wg to give you a little idea and send me a note to let me know you're interested. I'll ask you some questions loosely based on the ones you see in that journal!
I'm interested in submitting film/animation but I can't submit my work!
Take a look at this faq!
FAQ #831: Why can't just anyone submit film?
Hey! Since you animate, think you could help me out with my work?
Unfortunately I cannot work for free. I'm happy giving advice and words of wisdom based on my experiences, however I'm a freelance illustrator and animator, and I have to pay my bills.
Hey there! I'm Kingman Cheng and I'm a BBC (British Born Chinese) illustrator and animator, who is also skilled in UI and website design.|
My work is inspired by practically anything I've seen, heard or experienced in my life. To name just a few: old tales, childhood memories, history, culture, and even just conversations I've had.
I can work in a wide variety of styles because I believe in being adaptive and designing to fit the briefs I work to. However I have to say my work generally isn't 'clean', and I love textures, tone and exciting composition!
