    ...seperate from the photography forum. Photography is cool, but it seems to be all this forum is about.

    there would be a total of 5 threads if we had a separate art forum.

    rarely does anyone post their art so it is mostly photography.

    I think an art forum has potential and is worth a try.

    So?

    We could talk about photoshop, illustrator, after effects, editing, 3d modeling/animation or any other kind of art...

    It is up to those who's interest lies in art to post more art related threads.
    Photography will always dominate, but I am sure there must be many members who could post drawings, artwork, PS work, or any number of things.

    As this forum is now, I agree with pechango.

    This is an art forum too. It's just a little unfortunate that most of the members are into photography. I do enjoy the non photography art threads a lot here. The photography stuff is a bit diluted.


    Other than splitting the forum or creating a subforum, anyone have any suggestion what to do to help non-photography art threads?

    I would never post any art in here, its just photography. People who are artists realize this and won't post in here- you see nothing about art so they are afraid to...and figure no one is going to comment, which is what happens.

    not really. I was originally drawn here for the "art" part, browsed it and saw 0/100 threads about art and only about photography and went away. Now I'm into photography :o
     

  24. :rofl: @ Av :bigthumb:
     
  25. The reason that the art is mixed in with the photography is because there are maybe 5 art threads/week (if that)

    you know how boring that would be??? That would be the most dead forum on OT. I'm down with making more art threads though. *looks for pencils*
