Project Educate Continues!

Project Educate Continues!!!

projecteducate is a group and all updates from individuals during their weeks listed below will be posted over there! So be sure to join or watch for the full updates! If you want to partake in Community Week by writing an article then just note the group with your ideas!

How it Works

projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the dA community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate!

When was the last Fan Art and Photography (centered on nature) week? I'm actually interested in that type of art.

I think the last APN (animals, plants & nature) photography week was also during my last term in 2011. The links are still on my profile, but I'm planning a new week. I have the same question as Lyricanna, what would you like to see? =)

I don't know. ^^; But I've been interested in photography since March 2014, so I thought hints and tips will be nice.

Hints & Tips about photography in general or about something specifically related to animals, plants & nature? =)
Just-To-Look1 Featured By Owner May 27, 2014  Student General Artist
Maybe something in general. I sometimes go into different types of photography.

I'll see what I can do =)

Looks like the last Fan Art week was November 2011… So it's been a while!

If we were to run another one, what would you like to see covered?
Just-To-Look1 Featured By Owner May 26, 2014  Student General Artist
I don't know. I know that there are shows that are not-so-popular like Tom & Jerry Kids (with only 894 deviations, if you add quotation marks around it) in comparison to the now-popular Disney's Frozen (35,000 something deviations. Phineas and Ferb, with 70,000 something deviations, has even more.). Maybe deviants should work together to create a "Undiscovered Shows" feature, which is a feature of any show that has less than 1000 deviations submitted.

I was also asking this question to myself: Should original art be well-known to rather than just relying on fan art as the key to being popular? Because I was wondering why deviants who write "how to be popular" tutorials write "DO NOT DRAW ORIGINAL ART. DRAW FAN ART THAT EVERYONE LIKES." My opinion is ,"No matter what type of art you do, just keep on doing your best, and ignore the spam messages you get every day."

What's your opinion? I like to hear from you. If you don't understand, never mind. :)

The problem I have found when doing Fan Art Friday articles is that for shows with less fan art there is also less quality fan art, so the features either drop in quality or don't happen since I want to feature 10-15 pieces.  It has frustrated me a lot as well, so I was thinking of doing a couple special editions with a mix of fan art from various shows/books/etc that are less popular here on dA =)

Honestly, my fan art is the most ignored stuff in my gallery so I always laugh at that advice.  What it comes down to is if you have something good (original or not) and give comments and faves to others, people will return the favour =)

The less quality thing has given me a question to ask you though. Which one of these deviations do you consider "good quality"? Try clicking on the deviation for a better view.
