Hello and welcome to Figures-Odyssey!

divider by Imperial-Palace :iconjfonline: :iconodessa-himijo: divider by Imperial-Palace

We are JF and Ana´s.
Pleased to welcome you !

We propose you to share with us and all the community your passion for figures and photography.
Nothing very original so far, you may think. You're not wrong.

But what would you say about trying to make things more
interactive and individually enjoyable at the same time?


Our Goals
They're quite simple but we will need you to reach them! :dummy:

Turquoise Bullet - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Make the artists as important as their art. Turquoise Bullet - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

First of all, the main idea of the group is to let everyone find their place in it, by allowing
to every one who wants to be part of the project the possibility to have a personal gallery.

You can upload pictures of figmas one day as well as uploading pictures
of nendos the day after. It's your gallery so you can add any work you want
as long as it's figure related without having to look for the right folder.

It does not mean you can add very poor quality pictures, but it goes without saying.
The pictures must reach a certain standard. It's not so high though.

Just make sure it's not too blurry, grainy or any other thing that would make the
figure hard to see. Also, pay attention to the amount of similar photos you submit,
we cannot accept 10 copies of the same picture.

It joins another very important idea we had in mind when wanting to create the group :

"highlight the artists and the uniqueness of their art".

Turquoise Bullet - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Provide a rich and handy database. Turquoise Bullet - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

We all know how time consuming it can be to browse through deviantart since there are
so many good artists. One of the goals of this group is trying to gather the more awesome pictures
as possible from confirmed photographers to hobbyist ones and let emerge new photographers.

But it's not only this.

In the long run, we hope we can become big and be a reference for figure photography
on deviantart and even beyond and create an organised database everybody
could consult, no matter if they're into this hobby or not (yet).

Turquoise Bullet - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Make the community alive ! Turquoise Bullet - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

That's the hardest thing to do. And this is where we will need your help.
Of course, not everyone is online all the time and there will be calm moments, but
we really would like to strenghten the links between the figure photographers and lead
you to interact more, without forcing you or anything. It's not what we're looking for.

We will try to create various topics for you to exchange, be it about this hobby, japanime,
other hobbies you have and so on. We are open to different ideas
so feel free to share yours with us. :meow:

Featuring, asking questions to members about their art, their techniques are also planned.
There are plenty of ways to make the adventure interactive
and we will do our best to provide you enjoyment.


Last words

The undeniable truth behind this project, is that we're both thankful for the community here
on deviantart and the awesome experience figure photography is for us.

All the positivity and talent that emanates from every piece of art
deserve to be noticed and the person behind them as well.

This group is nothing but a tribute to you in the first place.

We hope you'll like the idea and join us with joy,
in order to leave your mark in the figures' odyssey.

Meet our lovely members !

Hello dear members,

So far, our group counts 34 members, here you are, you all :D :
(It's the occasion if you don't know some of your fellow photographers' work to have a look at their gallery.)

:iconahnpan: :iconbellechan: :iconbradaan: :icondejivrur: :icondeserteagle451: :iconedhutschek: :iconeinheit00: :iconeritesphoto: :iconexiledhearts: :iconfrasbob: :icongarivel: :iconhunterx-v2: :iconmiettechan: :iconkaridzka: :iconkiraakuma92: :iconkixkillradio: :iconkookykonata: :iconkurodot: :iconjfonline: :iconjulianafurman: :iconlysiere: :iconmartim: :iconmiko-bura: :iconmolibdato: :iconmorph8: :iconmyuzu-sempai: :iconnikicorny: :iconodessa-himijo: :iconphtoygraphy: :iconscher: :iconsnowveil: :iconsolguilty: :iconstereometric: :iconthe-2nd-runner: :iconvince454: :iconwata1219: :iconyami-usagi:

That being said, I have received some messages telling me you didn't know where to submit.
The answer is simple, when you join, we're in charge to create a folder with your username. Only YOU can submit in it.
As you probably noticed it, the folders are listed in the alphabetical order so you just have to scroll down until you see yours.
Since we're not always online, it can happen your folder has not been created yet and you have to wait a little, sorry about that.
We also have to allow submissions in the folder after creating it, so it takes a few minutes, but as they say a few minutes can change a lot. Anyway, I'm digressing, but at least now you know how it works. :D

If you have any difficulty, you can still drop a message in the comments sections.
Hope this helps and welcome to the new members !

By the way...
Now that I'm thinking about it, why not starting to talk a little in the comments?

"How are you?"
"Where d'you come from?"
This kind of simple things to get us all started with the group.
Could be nice to read all your little productions and interact.

So feel free to right a little something, even silly things if you want. :meow:

Be creative, members !

So....I guess this group is dead?

It's not in the best of health, no :saddummy:

I think both founders have left DeviantART and they're the only ones who can approve new members. I can accept new artworks to the group but unfortunately I can't approve your member request, as much as I'd love to see new members join.

Really sorry about that!

IS Dollfie dream can include in here, or just PVC nendo and figma ?
Odessa-Himijo Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014
Hello Snowveil, and sorry for the delay... Hmmm, we haven't thought about that when creating the group, I'll ask JF and come back to you with an answer. We still have track of the expired submissions so if we decide to allow dolls in our group, I'll add your pictures myself if they expire. :)
