A monthly article rounding up a collective of Contests,features and Submissions to the Resources Gallery this last month.
Since my last round up many exciting things have been happening.Our team name has changed from Artists Releations to Communmity Relations and all volenteers are now known as Gallery Moderators instead of Gallery Directors.With that comes many shiny new fixtures and fittings in the shape of a snazzy new logo that has been designed by Creative $bionikdesign and `TheRyanFord and of course collectable stampies have been made too
Miscats are now on the move by both the Gallery moderators and the "Help Desk Team",and you should be seeing a difference already and reports being answered..Big thank yous go to everyone that reported miscats while we were in non movable mode.
More awesome info you can find here in $Moonbeam13's shiny new <a href="[link] >Community Relations Newsletter: October. and $fourteenthstar's Community Operations Newsletter - October 28th and if you are not already watching them both you should be.
Resource Film Tutorials
If you have been keeping up with the Resource gallery news and #deviantartfilm updates you will already know that With the expansion of film comes film Resources,not only for film production ,software,devaintART related tutorials and stock clips for film , but for our creative and artistic needs in the form of Video Technique Tutorials.
Since I last spoke of these fabulous resources the Film Resources category itself has been re-named to Video Resources & Tutorials and to further define the video tutorials for creative and artistic processes the category itself has been re-named to Technique Video Tutorials included in this area you will find tutorials for both Digital and Traditional artistic genres.
Drawing/Inking (Tutorials showing basic drawing and inking techniques presented in a video format)
Painting/coloring (Tutorials showing techniques in painting, markers, pencil crayons etc presented in a video format)
Other (Tutorials on techniques that are not listed, or don't fit in a another category. presented in a video format)
Video Resources & Tutorials > Technique Video Tutorials>Digital
Video Resources & Tutorials > Technique Video Tutorials > Traditional
The same rules apply for film resources as to the rest of devainART regarding copyright material and music, and you will have to apply for a film invite to be able to submit your tutorials,but that is just a small formality and a simple process so don't let that put you off.
FAQ #842: How do I become a submitting member of the film community?
And of course if you are unsure how to create a video tutorial You can use CamStudio, which is Free streaming video software.We also have a little CamStudio video tutorial by :devlectricjonny: just to show you how simple it is.
This is obviously a really exciting time for the resource galley as we see more of our members submitting video resources, if you are interested in submitting to any of the sub categories within Video Resources & Tutorials,or would like to know how you can support this exiting resource contact any of the team at #deviantartfilm
