101 deviants said dolls and fashion, wtf??
55 deviants said abstract art, I could do it even better when I was 5
41 deviants said Photomanipulation, everyone can do simple cut and paste!!
31 deviants said lit(t)er-ature, of course :yawn:
22 deviants said Photography, it's only about the most expensive cam! :pissedoff:
20 deviants said Space art, everything looks the same :puke:
14 deviants said Certainly digital painting, you don't even use paper... :roll:
7 deviants said film&animation, if I wanna watch movies I turn on my TV
5 deviants said traditional art, come on people it's the 21st Century!

Mostly fan art, unless it is about technical painting and concept art.

Oh and those 640x420 my naked skin CAPTURES!

Photomanip?!?!?!?! you gotta be kidding me?!
Just because techniques are PARTLY unconventional and mostly unknown?!?!?!

It is usually people who have no idea about nothing who vote that. I would personally serve their useless holes if it comes to reasoning.

Digital painting?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!? Are you nutttttts?! go pick something a little less technical people.

But seriously, I think you should have an "other" option. Cause all the above are at some level some respectful genre of art. I just personally happen to dislike the manga things.
Oh and those "hey look at me I am cheap and tastelessly naked" images, those are definitely not art.

lol yeah, that poll was pure sarcasm and I tried to avoid any "other" or "all" votes, I wanted people to decide. I admit, it's not very fair. :D

I totally agree with you about the "artictic" nude-myspace shots, they are kind of annoying, though I don't browse that section too often lol. And I honestly don't know why people would choose digital painting, that's just silly.

Yeah I got that!
Obviously the reason for the "why" is lack of knowledge.
And about the nude captures, that makes me miss the old front page on v.5 where we could choose what to have on it. that was a good one!

yes you're right, that was a pretty cool feature!

I voted fan art but really any of them if done well are extravagant. For example, Kire's Zelda piece could be considered fan art. Fan art is just the one that has the worst good:bad ratio in my opinion

fan "art"
nothing original there, except the idea of first creator.

i am really surprised of the results from this poll
i never expected "abstract" and "photomanipulation" to be on the first places
and if literature is not art then..
ok i stop now.

people come to me and complain about photomanips every now and then. They say it's cheating because I don't draw them myself and it takes less time. :|

and you looked at their galleries and found fan art, dragon drawings with pencil or pictures of undefined part of nature.. :lmao:
