    Different kinds of art

    Recently, I've been getting into a hobby of 'fan-dub scripting' for Japanese anime songs (which I'm a little tentative posting about, though I enjoy it a lot- something other than drawing that pushes my boundaries, is fun and inventive in itself). But to the point:

    Is there a section for 'written based art'? I can't seem to find one.

    Yeah, we don't really have a section for writing on this website, though sometimes it might come up now and again in discussion and/or lounge threads.

    Though this may be considered thread necro-ing, this was basically what I was looking for here.

    I have to say that that is incredibly unfortunate. While it is understandably difficult to post text online and safeguard it against theft, I am saddened that such a large artist community has no support for written works. Be they songs, poetry or prose.

    As, due to this lack, a member of what is probably a tiny minority here, I would like to encourage the creation of a written-work based forum. There are so few places to get good feedback and there is so little support for writing these days, this is a rather sorry state that all artists should work to remedy.

    Baby it's cold outside!

    I do art. Not art, but art. Deal.

    I once met a man from Nantucket. He insists he does not live in a bucket. For asking he gave me a shiner.

    I find that odd, as there are loads of writing forums. Next week we will be highlighting dance and then opera as they also have tiny minorities that are vaguely connected to the visual arts.

    That's part of the issue. There is a divide among the artistic community where the visual arts do not consider the literary arts to be well, art. As such there are "art" forums, and there are "writing" forums, note that the latter does not have the word "art" in it, and yet poetry, prose and lyrics have been considered an art for just as long as visual art.

    Likewise, if there is an implication that dance and theater are not "visual arts", then I question the definition of "visual arts", if dance and theater are not visual forms of art, I don't know what is.

    On the very front of this website it makes no discerning between visual, literary, or performance arts. If this is indeed intended as a "it must be able to be viewed in a 800x800 jpg file format" art website, I am incredibly disappointed.

    I think people should use common sense. This site pretty obviously caters to drawn or painted art within the concept art/fantasy range.

    You can find sites that cater to writing in general or even specific kinds of literary works with ease. Not everything is going to be a come one come all art gathering. I thinks it's much more beneficial to find a website that caters to your chosen craft anyways, so that you can meet other people with the same interests more easily.

    But I enjoy visual arts. If I were looking for a literary only website I could have found one, heck, I've been on them. I enjoy literature, sculpting, sketching, photography and all sorts of art.

    Lets take an example. 6 years ago in 2004, DeviantArt barely supported writing(text limit). It didn't support music or video at all. Through persistence of it's users, within two years it had developed a much larger support for writing, and shortly after, developed ways for video and music to be displayed.

    Besides, is not a great deal of fantasy art drawn from fantasy literature? From historical stories about dragons, fae, and monsters?

    I am inspired to write from photography, music, sculpture, literature and many other forms of art. I am inspired to sculpt, take photos, and create other visual art in the same way.

    I have no desire to limit myself to a "chosen craft" and be part of some great circle-cycle where that is all I am ever exposed to. All art is my craft, my visual art inspires my writing, and my writing inspires my visual art.

    Sorry 'bout that. Heaven forbid you should have to visit more than one website.

    The irony of a remark like this by you is astounding.

    May we see some?
    It'd be awesome to see some of your art. Or craft. Or whatever it is.
