Are works of art really "blogs"?

Now, in PMC, a blogger can write a blog and then separate into different sections: Article, Tutorial, Lets Play, Review, Interview, Art, Story, Comic, and Other.

Now I ask you this: Are all of these really "blogs"? A blog is a work of writing shown off via the internet. Now, someone who makes good art and someone who makes good blogs are 100% different. While they both require massive skill, they are completely different. Let's be honest, to be a good artist (while you do need creativity), you don't have to be good at writing at all.

What is bad about art being considered "blogs" on PMC? Well, for one thing, it takes attention away from bloggers who are doing the real blogging. Not only that, but it also takes attention away from the artists because blogs cover up there art.

So, a simple solution would be too make an Art section on PMC. It would create room for bloggers and Artists, as well as an easier way for artists to find art. And, when you think about it, "Comics" and "Lets Plays" are also forms of art. Yes, film is a form of art.

Are you aware yesterday at one point more than half the blogs on the popular reel were Art? Wouldn't it make sense to have an Art Section?

Well, that is all I have to say. Very simple, short, to the point blog. Tell me if you like the idea!



Question: In your opinion, do you think it would be fair (if an art section comes to exist), for a person to post an artwork they didn't make, as long as they give credit, and they actually write about/analyze the piece of artwork?

I agree, plus there seem to be so many of them. If I go to the blog section, it's for blogs, not art.

I do agree with this, but Planet Minecraft is about Minecraft, not real-life creativity, it's about a video game. And the question at the end... That'd end up like Skindex, people stealing art and not giving credit. As there ARE moderators, they would be handling Skin-Stealing, Texture Pack Stealing, etc... But while they take a step forward, the art stealers take 3 steps forward. I just feel like it would be less Minecraft and more "In Real Life". And it'd be another thing for moderators to handle. But other than that, its an amazing idea. ~Ultra (Wow this is probably the longest comment I've ever written XD)

I completely agree with you. This is why I think we should also have a non-minecraft blog section. This site is about Minecraft, and we should be about Minecraft content.

You should send a message to Cyprezz, this is actually a pretty sweet idea, +1

(also i feel like stealing art should not be acceptable at all (unless of coarse it is edited, and if so they must have the original creator under the credit section))

Well, if its an analysis of an artwork then perhaps but to be totally honest no-one does that here anyways. I'm practically against it simply from doing it in my art course so It probably shouldn't be allowed.

So... because you don't like it you don't think it should be allowed? How is that fair?

Also, I'l have you know people have done that on PMC, and have made the pop reel with it. And if people in the artwork section did this more, they could do it on Minecraft pictures, making us think more about minecraft, and making a large group of intellectual people like it more.

Well when you put it that way then yes. Its not that I discourage the idea of analysis, its just I don't think pmc should turn into a hub for that sort of thing. Sorry I wasn't aware that it had been done before but with how pop reels are these days you don't often see much more then the pixel contest, rants and sub-specials. In the blogs anyways. (Aside from some tutorials)

I dunno, I just don't think pmc is the place for analysis, but A minecraft-themed art section could be nice. It would even open up a new category for competitions.

No, there is no need for an art section. People should start uploading their stuff to DeviantArt or Imigur. Things like that. This is a website about MINECRAFT. Not your random art.

Agreed, you could add links to your imgur or devianart profiles, and not have the pop-reel cluttered up with a bunch art blogs which don't even have anything to do with Minecraft. PMC is a minecraft website, and letting art be a huge part of it is like having a big part of youtube be written articles.

Well then, why is there an art section in the "blogs" section? Obviously, Cyprezz wants there to be Art on PMC, so shouldn't it have its own section rather than it taking up space for blogs?

Yeah i think there should be an art section but if people want to just post art in blogs! Answer to your question: Hmm..Yes but they should ask the creator and change a few things so they don't steal the whole thing

Yep, There should definitely be an art section. And to answer your question... Yes. But only if they ask the creator first. :)
