Should the different art forums even be split up? We don't want the different categories to be too fragmented, and it doesn't look like there's going to be as many art posts as devlogs and release announcements.

it's important to make sure the art segments aren't fragmented of course, because we don't want to end up with a bunch of inactive forums, but i think there's also value in dividing up only specific things, because some people might be looking for one specific thing and have to sift through a bunch of stuff that isn't that before they find it. it would suck if we ended up with a bustling art community, but stuff like music ending up unnoticed because there's an explosion of animated art, or something like that, you know? i think something like "visual art" and "music" being divided categories makes sense, but it's something worth thinking about.

I see what you mean. Maybe 2D art and 3D art should be combined?

(1 edit)

I think 2D and 3D art are distinct enough to be considered their own things. Animations should not have their own section as animation would be a subset of 2D or 3D art.

Pixels, Polygons, Waveforms. :)

Edit: To add to my point, I wouldn't want 2D to be split into, say, pixel art, illustrations, and vectors. One 2D forum for all types of 2D art is fine. Same for 3D, we don't need low poly, stylized, and photo-realistic sub sections.
