Hello everybody!

I have not been able to check my deviantART messages in a long time so some joining requests and favourite submissions have expired. If you are still interested in joining, feel free to send a new joining request!

I'm now trying to change the member listing (it's about time). I'm thinking of simplifying the sempai - kouhai pairings and accepting features on each member. Meaning, if you are interested in certain area of drawing, for example, you could send us a note stating what exactly you are looking for and I would add you to a list in our journal. I will also delete a lot of journals and folders. I will remove the whole "Arena" for the time being, just to get the basics work out first.

UPDATE: I changed the member listings but they are still unfinished. Some members have not been listed in any category so be sure to choose one main category if you have not done so already. I sent every member a note requesting a short description about themselves and what they are looking for. The description can be something like this:


:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::iconimhappyplz: traditional, comics - [origins]
"Hi, I'm ** and I'm looking for a teacher who could teach me with colouring and anatomy. I like drawing comics and animals. I'm good at drawing hair so I could help those in need with that."

Are you looking for a teacher or do you wish to be a teacher? What kind of things would you like to learn/teach? What kind of styles are you interested in? Are you looking for a specific kind of help (tutorials, red-line drawing, critiques)? Those are some questions that you can use to write a description. Also, everyone can now list more categories that will be listed next to each name like in the example.

All these changes might take some time to get used to and since there have not been that many ideas, everything might not work out perfectly right away. So just, bear with me, please! :D


Do you have ideas?

I would love to hear YOUR opinions and ideas for improving this group.

Right now, everything is moving quite slowly and nothing really happens. What would you suggest for us to do to make it work smoother? Is there something in particular that confuses you or seems too complicated? Would you like to have more activity, such as, contests or pair tasks?

How should we change the member listing and pairing process?

If you have ANY ideas at all, let us know, please. Leave a comment below or send us a note! :)

Thank you all for joining and hopefully we will get this baby to work!

JavaLeen Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sadly, not. But if you need something in particular that I may help you with and you're familiar with Picarto I could make a little tutoring session on the theme, provided it's something I can assist you with properly, ofc.

Sadly we're not that active. I'm still here but it would seem that I just do not have enough time / motivation to keep this active and busy. I wish I could split up and keep this going for everyone! But I'm always open for new ideas! :)

lovethirst Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Can I send a note to the group so that I can receive individual constructive crits on my particular art?
JavaLeen Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
u can put it in the group gallery under your category if u want. ^^

only the 'staff' sees the notes so it wouldn't be mush advertising, would it? ^^
NaturallyLecherous Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011  Student Interface Designer
I would say no. I would suggest you to find yourself a teacher here that gives you constructive crits, or you could join a critique group too where you can receive critique from different individuals.

I'm also helping with #Critiques-Requested but since I'm a bit too busy to comment every single submitted work, I can critique works that are specifically linked to me for feedback. :)

So, if you'd like to receive critique from me to a particular piece of art, leave a comment on my profile or send me a note! :)
Lilly-Kitten Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011  Student Traditional Artist I would really enjoy having a Senpai. I am doing...okay in my art but want desperately to improve in backgrounds and would like to develop a better coloring style.... lighting and such....
