Please welcome our new staff! Tijgerkat, SaraSchool, Lady-Silver-Hand, and Sepulchral-Roses are new to the Misc. and Traditional Art critic teams, and MissMorticia has filled the open General Admin position. Thanks all of you for your time and effort to help the club and your fellow dA members!
Critiques are open for Digital Art!</a> Im also opening the last Misc slot to a Lit piece, preferably poetry. All slots are first-come, first-serve basis, so make sure you note the club with your requests ASAP. Also, please note a <a href=critique-it.deviantart.com/jou…>change to the request procedures</a>. All requests need to be submitted to the club by the 15th of each month to ensure that our critics have enough time to give a quality critique.
Our two contests have extended deadlines</a>. Both now close either on December 30th, or when weve received 30 entries whichever comes first. Weve got ten entries to the critique guide contest, which can be viewed in <a href=critique-it.deviantart.com/fav…>this collection</a>. We have 8 entries to the critique contest, which are being kept under wraps to ensure integrity.
Were planning a workshop night for the end of the month. Were very excited about this because it will give all of you, the members, a chance to give feedback to each other in a live setting. Keep an eye out for the informational news article due to be released early this next week.
Our <a href=critique-it.deviantart.com/jou…>community update journal</a> is filled with great improvement and critique-related news from all over dA. If you have something to add to it, do note the club or leave a comment on the journal.
Tutorial of the Week
Each week we'll feature a helpful dA tutorial. If you'd like to suggest one (even your own) feel free to note the club. This week's tutorial was found courtesy of ArtistsHospital's Hospital Library.
"Creases and Folds"
This thorough and easy to follow tutorial gives tips and advice for drawing clothing, which is something I noticed lots of our critiquees need help with. Check it out and get some practice in!
