1.) Featured work must have been made in the past three weeks, which also means you have time to make something shiny and new too if you want. You have plenty of time! Feel free to wait as long as you need to to send in something, as this is not a first-come-first serve basis. (Deviations between Nov 14-Dec 20 are acceptable for submission.) Please send your suggested features to me via a note as "Swap Show Submission" or anything close to that.
2.) I will probably have preference towards unseen artists, but we'll see what happens. For the intent of this first batch of features though, I will probably overlook this.
3.) It does not have to be your artwork. In fact, I encourage looking for other artists outside of your general viewing zone to find to feature. You might run into something cool. :]
4.) You may submit your own work though, of course. I also encourage that even more. If you have more than one submission, you may send up to three, though I'll only pick one. You can also send three pieces from three different artists (yourself included).
5.) Featured work should preferably be of completed nature. Avoid submission of sketches, wips and speedpaints, though if they are particularly striking, it may be featured regardless. I'm going to skirt past sketch/art dumps for the time being. Let's get some cool, amazing and inspiring work in here!
6.) I will not feature every piece suggested since in the off chance there are a lot of submissions, I find it important to feature not too much art in one go since I know we can glaze over sometimes, but if I do not feature the piece, feel free to submit again a new piece the next time I do something like this.
7.) You should be proud of it! Be passionate about your work! Have fun and make great art.
It's about that time. Time for a giveaway.yes the blood bath that is blackfriday has passed and the christmas season has arrived and it's time to hold another tablet giveaway.
This time I'll be giving away a huion h610 prographics drawing pen tablet brand new bought specifically for this giveaway.
The rules for this giveaway are as follows
1. you MUST be watching me
2. you must make a journal about this citing me as the person giving away the tablet, link it in a comment on this journal and (for my own personal curiosity) cite the person you found the giveaway from in your journal. (if you found it from me there's no need to cite twice.)
3. Favorite my giveaway journal.
4. no bot/spam accounts.
5. not a rule but a word of advice: guilt tripping me will only hurt your chances.
the giveaway ends on February 5th. (i know an odd date i actually wanted to have it land on christmas but money problems ensued and i couldn't afford the tablet until now.)
The winner will receive one huion h610 prographics drawing pen tablet, a fe
