Artists of DA by Son23 Artists of DA by Son23
Please read rules before submitting.

This is a project I had in mind for a while. I've always wanted to start a project everyone on DA can take part in.

This project is called Artists of DA. As you can probably guess, it has to do with the artists of Deviant Art. The idea is that even though everyone on DA has their own art styles and techniques. The one thing we all have in common is that we're all creative, and artists should come together to not only show our differences but also show the beauty in our differences.

I started with myself, and what is suppose to happen is someone will draw themselves and send it to me. Once they do, I will put that person in this picture, then I will link to their DA at the bottom.

I really hope this project grows and spreads. X3 Please help support this project by taking part or telling others.

-------------------------------------
Edit:
I am glad to see more people are taking a notice to this. We finally have more girls too! let's hope it keeps going =3
-------------------------------------

Rules:

1.) It HAS TO BE YOU! No alter egos or anything. It has to be the real you in your art style. No other characters.

2.) It can be any art style: Anime/Manga, Toony, Realistic, etc.

3.) They have to be looking in the same direction. For example, look at me. It is as if I am looking at something, like a light. It doesn't mater where you body is facing or what pose you are in, so long as your eyes are looking in the same direction.

4.) The light source is coming from the same direction you are looking at. Try to shade accordingly (I know I am not the best shadder myself, but try your best).

5.) Keep it clean, please. I want this to be viewable for everyone. I don't mind sexy clothing or anything, but please no nudity.

6.) Try to keep it to scale. I am 6 foot 5 inches. You can download this picture if you wish so you can keep to scale. When you send in this picture, please let me know how tall you are. I also realize people's style of drawing may result in differences in height. If you have a hard time keeping it to scale in terms of height, so long as it is reasonable it's fine. If you're not taller than a building or smaller than an ant, you're good.

7.) MUST BE FULL BODY.

8.) Please send the picture in either a photoshop file or .png file with no background.

9.) Don't worry about the lighting effects, I'll take care of it.

10.) Upload your picture to DA with a link to this picture. This is so this project can spread and grow.

11.) NO. BASE. PICTURES! Any base picture I receive will be rejected.

12.) If you want to update your picture, just send it to me and I will replace your old one.

13.) Must be colored.

14.) Must have DA account.

15.) Please sign your picture.

16.) If your finished picture was not made on the computer, please scan the picture. No photographs.

17.) It can't be you cosplaying. It has to be YOU.

I will update the rules if anything comes up.

So if I draw myself to proportion and sent it to you, then you'll add it to this picture?

hello i was browsing deviant art and happened upon your project and work its all very good and i was wondering if i could join? i only have a few questions, i have no photoshop or anything really just paint so if i upload my picture it will be colored in by hand (crayons and colored pencils most likely) and look bad is that all right? next is i might have trouble on scaling i mean im not far off from your height i myself am 6 foot 3 inches so just slightly shorter but if i mess up a little on the scaling can you inform me on how much shorter it would be? or taller... i mess up on scaling easily lol oh and final question is were allowed props just not outrageous right? cause i would like to draw my katana in with me sorry for the long drawn out interview lol

doesn't matter so long as it is colored. =3
just be careful of how it scans. Sometimes scanners make the picture look bad.
