MisCat Hero Contest!!


Gallery Descriptions Month - win PRIZES!!!!!Galleries month
This month at projecteducate a group of Community Volunteers have worked hard to create gallery description articles for almost every Gallery here on DeviantART. Throughout August we will be bringing you these articles covering the definitions of galleries from Photography to Photo-manipulation, Artisan Crafts to Digital Dolls. If you have any questions about where to submit your work here on DeviantART then this month will be your chance to ask. Just head over to projecteducate, send us a note or comment on one of the articles as and when they are posted.
A whole month of articles at projecteducate deserves a celebratory contest, so we're going to host one that will hopefully get your creative juices flowing! Since the aim of this month is to reduce mis-cats and help deviants re-classify their work correctly, we thought that a fitting them would be …
The "Miscat Superhero" Contest!
Read on for more information!


:bulletred: MisCats are the BANE of deviantART (outside of screenshots being posted as "art")! I've seen a staggering amount of miscats from all sorts of galleries, not just perusing deviations but when viewing submissions to the galleries in Groups.

:bulletred: To create awareness for MisCats and how to make sure deviations are in the correct galleries, projecteducate has many Community Volunteers writing blogs to explain their Galleries and how to correctly submit works into the correct SubCats.


For Example:


APN: Categories and FeaturesGalleries month
Today we're taking a look at the Animals, Plants & Nature (APN) photography categories and what goes in there. It won't be as detailed as I've done some years ago. You can see the recap here. We'll look at the gallery descriptions today and some features!
The next categories are available when you submit to Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature;
Aquatic Life
Photographs of plants and animals living underwater.
Birds
Photographs where birds are the primary subject.
Domesticated Animals
Photographs of animals that have been domesticated (tamed to live with humans), as either pets or livestock, and which depend on humans for survival.
Flowers, Trees & Plants
Photographs of plant life, such as trees, flowers, shrubs and herbs.
Fungi
Photographs of fungi, such as yeast, molds, lichens, mushrooms and toadstools.
Geology<


:bulletred: Written by Anoya referring to the APN Photography gallery, each SubCat is described and examples are provided for clarity.

:eyes: Look for additional articles pertaining to Gallery information in the month of August!

:iconnewsboyplz: Also, Community Week is coming up for projecteducate ~ how to get involved can be found in the listed article:

Community Week - Get InvolvedThe Community Week has been a way that allows Deviants to get involved within the community to educate other deviants with their knowledge and give out tips and tricks, and interview outstanding deviants.
Next Community Week
September 29th - October 5th
How can I get involved?
All you need to do is note projecteducate with your article idea! We can make sure to avoid double-posts in the Community Week and work with you on your idea when another deviant had the same idea. As soon as we are happy with the article idea, you will receive an invite to Contributors to have access to the journal skin, guidelines, and week schedule.



September 29th - October 5th

Ah, I see. Autocorrect happens to even the best of us. :aww:

I'm sorry, but seniormentors only accepts seniors as members. However, you can always watch the group, and you do not need to be a member to request a mentor. You could also join Deviant-Mentor, which accepts all types of members.

Search the "About Me" section of %seniormentors to see if there is a specific mentor you can ask questions to. Also, be sure to check all the amazing tutorials that are posted under "Resources" that can help with all sorts of art. Search by clicking on "Resources" on the dA page, then "Tutorials" then narrow the search by typing in the type of tutorial you are looking for in the little white box, top left of the search-page results :hug:

I personally am not volunteering, as I'm a college student who doesn't have time to take on a mentee. :(

I would recommend you join or watch groups that focus on art tutorials, as you will receive tutorials in your inbox and can use those to branch out and try new techniques.
Here are some tutorial-related groups: #Divine-Tutorials #Tutorial-City #Tutorials-and-co #TutorialsClub #Tutorials-for-free 

I'd also recommend trying new drawing styles, realism in particular (FOERVRAENGD has some great tutorials), because it helps you understand human anatomy and base your style off of proper anatomical structure. A strong understanding of anatomy gives you a lot more stylistic freedom and expertise.

Good luck! :aww:

Hey folks and folkettes!





I'm 31 years old and I have a good bit of experience in manual art from sculpting to pencils and inks, watercolour and oil, etc. I'm also an excellent creator and writer according to many who have seen me at work. (been running my own rpg adventures both tabletop and on-line for as long as I can remember)

I also know the basics of 2d and 3d digital art, but I'm about to pick it up and feeling quite a good bit intimidated.

So I'm looking for mentor(s) who can actually help me make the jump from uncertain to knowing what I'm doing.

I'm a fantasy- and comicbook type of guy. So my main interests lie in characterisation, lineart (both sketching and fleshing it out digitally) and colouring, digital painting, and mudbox as well as proper 3d design and animation of the characters / scenes I construct.

Would like a person who has been at it for a good while and is able to explain work process and technique with a more hands-on approach instead of in raw theory.

Not looking for people who would do the brunt of the work for me, but looking for people who can teach / help me ease into this.
So, like, 1 on 1 sort of deal.




Stay awesome <3

From #seniormentors

Feel free to sort through the "about us" to see what each mentor's specialties are. It could help to peruse the galleries on staff members as well at Mentors, then contact a mentor directly with issues you are having :aww:
