*Edit*  Woah, I did not expect this many replies, thank you for taking time to let me know what you think!  I also hope that you won't mind if I don't write back to every single of these comments separately - I did read and appreciate all of them though.

So the general consensus seems to keep all my work in this gallery, and I will do that.  Thank you again for the feedback!  *end of Edit :) *

Original Post --->   I know there is a pretty big divide between what I do traditionally and what I do in Photoshop.  Generally the Photoshop pieces appeal to larger audience.  So my question here is, should I make gallery here specifically for traditional work to separate it from the digital?  Do you care one way or the other? (I guess it would basically mean that people who don't care for my watercolor pieces would not see them in their watch)

Thank you in advance for letting me know!

Thank you very much :) Actually sometimes I feel that I don't focus enough on the story, so I'm glad you get it out of them despite of it!

oops late to the game. I like seeing everything personally. You can always just organize folders for those who only want to see one thing or the other.

I like seeing them both! I like your digital stuff just a tad more (on the whole, there are individual traditional pieces I adore) but I don't want to choose between one or the other! Also, you don't upload new stuff that often, so you don't really have to worry about showering your followers. :)

I think they would both fit here since it is your whole ouvre as an artist. You can always separate them in folders.

I don't mind them mixed in with each other at all. It would be nice to have some type of explanation in the write up, but that is about it.

Well you wonna do children's book illustration right? Well isn't that more about traditional media than digital? So bearing that in mind I would suggest making a gallery for traditional media so prospective publishers/clients can see your traditional work away from any photoshop pieces.

Just a though and hope this has helped.

All the best

Thank you for your comment :) In regards to children's illustration though, I don't think publishers care what medium it was created in, as long as it looks good in print. In fact it appears to me that majority of my son's books have digitally made illustrations. (even though I was specifically looking for ones with traditionally painted pictures while on my trip in Poland)

Ah I see yes that is a valid point. As a matter of fact I had this conversation today with the awesome professor Martin Salisbury who is a renowned children's book illustrator and senior lecturer at Cambridge School of Art and he was of the same opinion that content supersedes technique or medium.
This is good news for me as I love digital media yet at my art school people there are very much into acrylics and such.

Deviantart already does this as a feature.

"Browse"
"All - Anthro▼ - Digital Art ▼ - Fan Art ▼ - Traditional Art ▼"

Personally, I don't really care one way or another. Just want to point out that it isn't necessary to make that distinction, as there is already a way to separate them without needing two galleries.

They have the same flavor/style to me so I think of them together. Non-artists might not draw any distinction at all.

1 gallery, all work. I think its a bit more free here on DA. You could just organise them in your gallery for onlookers. But i dont mind seeing both in my watch, because you're awesome. But yeah, DA is very laid back in that respect.

An artist's lifework is not defined in section, in my opinion. When I like an artist, I like to see their traditional works and their digital art too, even sculptures if they do some. So I wouldn't separate your works if I were you <3

You should keep them together. I'd lose track of it being from the same person and I love to see the different stuff you do. :P

I was introduced to your gallery through your digital work, but I personally love it all! I wouldn't at all mind seeing more of both digital and traditional pieces in your gallery, so I don't think you really have to make a separate gallery.

Maintaining multiple galleries is a pain in the butt. I had a second ~woodpear and abandoned it.

You could submit different pieces to different subgalleries. Watchers would still see both, but if they wanted to go prowl they could limit the view. Your favorite pieces would still go in Featured.

I like all your work, but especially the watercolors. (Partly because I like knowing an original actually exists.)

Gosh, Ania, you do nice work.

Naw, it's great how it is. I mean, it's all your work, your talent, your skill... why separate them simply because one part has a larger audience? If you separate them, there will probably an even greater separation of audience, and you'll get kinda stuck. :D This way, all your work is together, and the influences each piece has on the others is easier to see.

I don't mind if there's separation in audience when it comes to my pieces- I will continue doing both traditional and digital art :) What I was concerned about here was not to show one or the other to the wrong audience so to speak. I'm guessing though that perhaps in this space it doesn't matter all that much after all. You also bring a good point about the influence between the pieces. Thank you for your thoughtful comment!

I wouldn't separate them unless you personally want to or have some sort of branding campaign you're establishing. I would follow your work though regardless of what you do though.

I once thought of making a separate account for my traditional art and my doll photos. But at the end of the day, it's my gallery, and if people don't want to see one kind of art or the other, they just won't look at those deviations. Although I do have a separate account for literature, but that's because people that watch me for art want art. There is an entirely different group of people that want literature. I know people that have separate accounts for non-mature pieces and NSFW pieces. But I think these examples are pretty different from just separating digital and traditional.

You can't please everyone. There will be people like me that like your watercolors and digital pieces. There will be some that only like one or the other. I know some people have different accounts for
Like I said, you can't please everyone. Do what you want to do. If you think that your work will be better organized by splitting them up, go ahead. Try not to let other people's interests run your life and your art. Be free~

Also, having two accounts means just another account that you have to check on top of everything else.

To be honest, I don't think you should exclude one or the other. You should just keep them together since they're both work done by you. If people want to actively view YOUR work then they should see everything you do. Not only that but for the people that love both your digital and traditional art it would become annoying to watch two different accounts for one person. Don't change anything based on the viewers. If you don't lke the two intermingling then get two accounts. If you love both then keep them both on the same account.
