In addition to some other changes (we will make a post explaining them - this is a special announcement because of existing galleries) we will be revamping our Alternative Art section soon-ish to integrate it more with the rest of TDA.
In order to promote more real-life-type of graphics we will be revamping the Designer Rank - in the future you will be able to get promoted to the Designer Rank after you make (and update) your Designer Gallery (so for example, you could be a Senior Artist and a Designer).
To make a Designer Gallery you would need to fill it with any type of art which is not the usual for TDA - photomanipulations, digital paintings, vector art, typography, 3D art, paintings and drawings, photography, design (posters, brochures, magazines, business cards, T shirts etc), web design (also skins) ....and so on.
What this means is this: we will delete all galleries in the Alternative Art section not updated in the last 3 months. If you wish for your gallery to stay, please either update it by May 2 or post here with a link to your gallery. They will be moved to Designer Galleries. 'Showcase' topics will be also moved there to be, er, showcased
We will also move any existing tutorials and resources in the Alternative Art section to their respective categories in our Tutorial Center and Resource Arena.
