Sorry for the in-activity from me recently. I have some external stressers at the moment that I've been having to deal with, and still am. But I want this group to get going. I just want to encourage everyone to submit their works, we'd love to see them! And I want to remind you to don't be afraid to submit sketched and WIPs for advise and encouragement. I want to get those galleries populated so I can do a blog about them real soon so you guys can get the attention.
Thank you for your patience and I'll re-posting some of the info from the last blog about what I want out of the group, just in case you missed the last one
Ok, so the goals of this group is to have you all interact. To be a safe place for people to go when they need help with their art, or anything really, I'm trying to build a community. It's inspired by the community of the actually dA site that I've witnessed over the passed 8 years. How artists will rally to other artist when they need them. I've been getting it with my watchers when I was going through what I was going through. My sister got it when someone had stolen you art work and re-uploaded it, boy did the community rally to end that. I want this group to be like a scaled down version of that, more intimate. Each and every one of you is worth the time and effort and I believe that. You all deserve to be hear, your art to be shared and talked over. And maybe you'll meat others who you can become friends with. I don't mean this to be all lovey-dovey, but I do think we should take care of each other.
So each gallery folder is designed to for a purpose. Like the "Your Masterpieces" folder is where you can share the works you are most proud of. As where the :Your Sketches and WIPs" folder is for advice and the such. So if you need help with a drawing, submit it there. I will look at it and others will be able to see it too. I suggest you make it clear in your description on your drawing that you need help. Also I will be making blog entries highlighting each folder, encouraging group members to check them out when there are new submissions in them.
Ok, with the blogs.. I believe I have it so you all can submit a blog on here.. I'm not sure yet, that'll need to be tested sometime. But I would like to encourage you to submit one if you want a certain subject to be discussed that's relevant to the group. Or if you have an idea that you would like advice on or anything that's another reason to put up a blog. Give the group some time though to get on it's feet before you submit a blog... I kind of want this one with all this info to stay up for at least a week.
!Contests and challenges!
Somewhere down the line I would love to hold contests. I love to stir up creativity and a little competition always does that, any they're a lot of fun. I also would like to do drawing or even writing challenges down the line. If you guys have suggestion on those I'd love to hear them as well. I'll make proper folders when they come up so you can submit them.
Group rules. Must read:
1. Please read the descriptions of each of the folders before submitting your art works. Works must be submitted into to right folders.
2. Do not submit into the "feature" folder. That is reserved by the founder.
3. You must be kind and respectful to each other, even when giving critique. If you feel you have been mistreated by another member please bring it to the founder's attention. If it was decided you were unjustifiable wronged and no second chances are given to the accused, they will be banded.
4. I would really appreciate it if in the description of the art work you state you feeling about your piece clearly.
5. Help each other and have fun!
