Groups

I don't write many journals here, because most of what I want to say, I do so on my website: www.wargamingtradecraft.com/

But this is a topic I want to bring to light because it's bugged me for a while and I think there are a ton of artists out there who deserve proper recognition. Deviant Art can be a great art community, but currently there's no section specifically for miniature artists. I usually use "Traditional Art -> Painting" but that puts my minis next to all sorts of 2D paintings. It just doesn't fit. The miniature category under Artisan Crafts is also a dicey fit because it's focused on stuff you make with your hands, not painting. Another poor fit. Lets face it, our hobby is huge and there are artists all over the world creating beautiful works on what I like to refer to as "3D Canvass". Having our own category would help experienced and new artists share their work and be browsed. It would also remove miniatures from categories where they don't really fit, cleaning up the experience of other DA users.

The suggestion thread is here: support.deviantart.com/entries…

I would appreciate all you can do to LIKE the suggestion and leave a comment but also to tweet this, share it on Facebook or post on your own sites. Lets get some recognition for what we do.

Thanks,

nice work man, I miss painting the miniatures- did a wicked skeleton back in the day
working on digital pieces just doesn't feel the same as working on the real object :P

Thanks :) It really is a good time bringing miniatures to life... I really got to get more time to dedicate to it.

that's what I miss when I'm in a 3D program- the ability to 'paint' things like real life- if they had a program that let me paint like I was painting miniatures, I'd be happy ;)

I've seen something like that... I think it was in an episode of Ace of Cakes when they were doing a cake for some Star Wars Clone Wars celebration.. they got to tour where Clone Wars is put together and a 3D Artist was working on a computer on a 3D Model of R2D2.. he was rotating it around and essentially airbrushing it.
