I have made some changes to the gallery folders. I hope these changes will help clarify where pieces should be submitted. It will hopefully provide a little more wiggle room for pieces that don't seem to fit any category.
Landscape, Nature, and Rural is now = Landscape and Nature
Basically taking the "human" element out of this category so that all the "human living, ways of life, etc" pieces can be submitted together in the category below. This will also provide clarity between still life and objects, and nature.... anything that is nature related, and not some kind of still life set up (even if its just a close up on a flower) will go in this category.
Cityscapes and Urban is now = City, Urban, and Rural - Ways of Life
This category can be used to submit scapes or daily living type pieces. Architecture still exists for pieces that emphasize the actual architecture of something, but regular city scapes do not belong in Architecture, they belong in this category.
Fantasy, Surreal, Sci-Fi is now = Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Illustration
This category is now specific to just fantasy/sci fi an illustration/fanart types of pieces. I think this grouping works better than having surreal mixed into it as well.
Abstract is now = Abstract and Surreal
This category will now take both abstract and surreal pieces. The most confusion I saw about which category to submit a piece was between abstract and surreal. It was always a tough call. So we're taking the confusion out of it and putting the two categories together.
The rest of the categories still stay the same. I was going to make a category specific for wall murals/spraypaint/objects that have been painted on, because those often cannot be cropped well but are deserving of being featured... however, I can't add new galleries right now, theres some kind of bug that I need to work with the Deviant crew to get fixed.
In the meantime, let us know what your thoughts are on these changes and about a category for murals/spraypaint/etc
