Fanart ho!
« on: January 07, 2006, 11:54:14 pm »
I don't know if anyone's noticed this rash of communities of Livejournal, but I thought it was a great concept and I encourage everyone to sign up or even just take a look at the prompts if you need some inspiration for your artwork.  

Fanart 100  100 prompts for 100 drawings of the fandom/character/pairing or your choice

Fanart 50  A slightly less strenuous version of the above

Eyecandy 69   An um... very raunchy version of the above

I was very tempted to sign up for Fanart 100, but wimped out at the last moment and signed up for Fanart 50 instead.  The prompts are more interesting over there, anyway.  :P  My fandom is Weiss Kreuz: General.  So far, it's been very challenging and fun.  

You could probably even modify these for original characters, if you like.  

(There's also an eqivalent for fanfiction, but that should probably go in a different section on the forums.  ;) )

Yeah, I'm totally going to join up with FanArt 100 too. I might do FanArt 50. I think it'll be good for my PS skills. As I have, like none. I suck.

But yeah. :) I think they are rocking communities.

I don't "get" it. I just see a bunch of LJ posts. What's supposed to be done or happen or what?

I think they just post art and somehow the person managing the site just gives an approval of some sort?  Not sure how the rankings come into play...

I guess your guess would be as good as mine...

There are links there to the art. When you sign up, there is a table you get, and instead of just linking the table, and making a huge picture post, they thumbnail or just link it. Makes it easier.

You sign up for a fandom/character/pairing, get a table like this, and draw pictures based on the prompts.  All of your pictures have to be of what you signed up for.  

It's quite the challenge, but a hell of a lot of fun.

Very odd... you double-quoted the link somehow, and so it, for a weird, conspiracy-theory type reason, takes me to microsoft.com. Very, very curious. I'm using firefox on linux, but if I type in http://"http:// it goes to microsoft. That shouldn't be the default page for ANYTHING. :-)

As for the actual topic, okay, I get it now. I wasn't seeing any of the prompts or stuff before.

Wow, I might join one of the writing communities.  And I might even join an art community to work on how much I suck.  I'd really like it if the suck improved.
