Officially Open!

This is Studio Umbra.

We here at Umbra treasure two things above all else: incredible characters and unforgettable stories. As the founder of this group, Camron “Darkesper” Davis, I can tell you that if there is one that that can get a rise of passion out of me, it’s a good story with great characters. I myself am a storyteller, one who puts a focus on the colorful cast of characters that make all of my tales possible. And as a storyteller, I’m always on the look out for those journeys, those tales that can strike the deepest of emotional chords within me. And that right there is the point of this group’s creation.

Studio Umbra is meant to be a celebration and collection of the amazing art people pour their passion and pain into making them the best they can be. We wanted to create a place that would not only require a high degree of true heart in each and every artwork and story submitted here, but a place that inspires creators to hone their craft and become the best they can be. Admittedly, we have a bit of a stricter standard here in regards to the quality and skill level of the submissions. However, that comes fro. our desire to bring pride to the name of Studio Umbra. We want the name to be synonymous with “awe-inspiring”. The stories featured here, the characters who call this place home; all of it should inspire others to want better. To want more. So we reject the simple. The uninspired. The apathetic.

We want the best of the best of the best. The best of the best has nothing to do with how “realistic” or “shiny” or “professional” the work looks. It has everything to do with the pure heart shown with every pen stroke. That is what we look for. That is what people come back for. That is what we all deserve.

The best of the best.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask them! We’ll do our best to answer you as quickly as possible!

What happened to the prompts? I miss doing this group! 
EgirlWinter Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2018  Hobbyist
So... is CC cancelled or something? Was there not enough participants? 
Goody-Goody-Gumdrop Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2018
I have a question, what inspired you to make this group? I mean, I have seen a lot of other groups not nearly as fun as this one! So where did the inspiration come from?
TheCamikazeD Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Oh man, sorry for the late reply! DA is the worst at notifications. Honestly, we just wanted to put a little life back in this place. DA is pretty much on the verge of dying and being left in the dust by other social media platforms, so this place is free much a wasteland. And a lot of the groups on here are just glorified art dumps so we just wanted to make a group that was a little more alive, you know?
Goody-Goody-Gumdrop Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2018
Yeah! I know what you mean! At school, everyone talks about Facebook, twitter, Instagram, you tube, etc. But nobody talks about Deviant art. (Which happens to be the only social media I use) 

I want to eventually start a group similar. :D

Out of curiosity, where does the name "Umbra" come from?
CrazyMouseInc Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2018   Traditional Artist
*sees a comment that's nearly two months old; can't help but spout random knowledge*
I don't know why he chose the name, but I know that "umbra" is what the shadow cast by an eclipse is called. Or something like that, while "penumbra" is the outer or lesser part of the shadow.
Think "Umbreon" from Pokemon. ^^ Breon 
I used to be obsessed with astronomy as a kid, and still remember some stuff. I just thought space was so cool. XD
EgirlWinter Featured By Owner Edited Feb 6, 2018  Hobbyist
Thanks! Darky actually answered already though, he said the image sounded cool so he went with it. 

That was a cool fun fact though, the only new thing I learned today despite going to school.
CrazyMouseInc Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2018   Traditional Artist
Ah good. I figured he wouldn't ignore you, but that I wasn't seeing a reply was really getting to me. XD

I'm happy I could tell you something new! School can certainly be that way sometimes. XP
