Would one consider these art?

First the definition of the word art:

“The conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colours, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium.”

Now let me show you some works made by the people in Deviantart (NOTE: NONE OF THESE ARE MADE BY ME, IT BELONGS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE ARTIST):

(First some Catholic inspired works)

I know I sort of over did it, but I just wanted to know what you guys conisder art :shrug: .

Does it reflect truth and beauty?
I.e., does it give you a sense of God?

Clicked through each link. No offensive materials present. :thumbsup:

Skip comments, though, just in case somebody who posts drops a curse word or two. ;)

To the OP: Do YOU consider the works you posted to be "art"? If so, why? If not, why not?

Here are the six elements of art:

1 Space

2 Color

3 Shape

4 Texture

5 Form

6 Line

Seeing as all of your images possess all six, yes they should be considered art.

Now that that’s outta the way… as this forum’s resident Narutard (and possibly the only one >_>;; ), I’ll comment on the Naruto fan art.

  1. hisses Karin! D8<

  2. Those two are destined to fight. :cool:

  3. Looks like a recolor though to be honest. :confused:
