My collection of favourites
One of the admins here at dA decided that one (and only one) of my pieces needed to be re-categorised from its current home in Digital Art > Photomanipulation > Fantasy to Anthro > Digital Media > Other

Whilst I suppose many people may think that my art should belong in the Anthro > Digital Media > Other category, I personally do not think that its quite the right category. My intention has always been to create a zoomorphic character (i.e. a human with animalistic traits) as opposed to an anthropomorphic character (i.e. animal or other non-human entity with human traits).

There is subtle distinction between the two and perhaps not enough for people to believe that I should be excluding it from the Anthro categorisation. Perhaps Digital Art > Photomanipulation > Fantasy is not the best place for my art, and given my approach to my photomanipulations, I feel that the next most appropriate category would be the Digital Art > Photomanipulation > People category, however I am sure to encounter people that would detest my photomanipulations being placed in that category.

The categorisation of my photomanipulations has long been something that I have pondered. I have a poll odysseusut.deviantart.com/jour… where I have asked this very question of those that have visited my page. Feel free to vote or place a comment here or on the poll. I would be interested to hear more opinions from you.

Enough of my spiel about Anthropomorphism vs Zoomorphism and dA categorisations. On to more pressing matters - I have something in the works at the moment that I hope you will like. I've been able to gain the permission of the photographer and model to do a photomanipulation of one of their Black Cat cosplay photoshoots (yes, Felicia Hardy will be getting a healthy dose of feline DNA :))
