HALLO, YOU

To match with the latest craze of throwing addresses around, I kinda figured 'what about starting an art chain'?

OK, the nub and jist is, we have 3 groups - UK, US/Canada, and International.

The UK/USA groups are for people who can only post to other addresses in their country. International is for people who can post wherever.

There will be 4 slots per group, to save complicating stuff.

Each person would start a picture of one of the other group-member's chars. It would be just a sketch. Then, they would send it to another person in the group, who would lineart it. Then theeey'd send it to someone else who would colour it. And the last person would shade it, and send it back to the owner of the char.

Obviously, you lot would have to organize who does what in regards to what characters get drawn, and which member does what.

(hopefully I'm making sense so far xD)

There will be a sign up period of ONE WEEK - but if a group fills before then, then it could start right away ^^

If there are less that three people in a group by the time the week ends, sign ups for that group will remain open for a further week.

SIGNUPS CLOSE 12TH JUNE

(lul, cause it filled up in an instant - the two groups won't exchange art among eachother - it's technically a separate group)


Should one group fill up particularly fast, or if you have issues with someone else in the group, we might add a second 'set' to said group, to try and sort stuff out and keep everyone happy :3

Most of the decisions will be made by you guys as groups, as to who draws who, and who lines/colours/shades - so communication is key to making this work. Once your group has been filled, you can start on choosing who does what, and PMing eachother addresses, and the like.

I think that should be fine. 83 As long as the theme is something the group could work with, that oughta be fine. |3

You can kind of sort out the stages (sketch/lines/color/shading) as a group, depending on people's preferences. Depending on each person's individual style and prefered art medium, that can kind of differ. You can really split it up any way you as a group see fit-- that was just a rough suggestion. 83

(And I thiiink there should be enough people in the UK. Between you and Clou we have two... so I'm sure before the week is up you should be able to get anotehr one or two. As long as you have at least 3 you can make it work. =3)

I got how its sorted out ^^' I guess the way I draw doesn't really seperate colouring and shading so much, but perhaps thats just me lol

Personally I think it would be kind of cool if there were only three steps, sketch/line/colour, and the fourth person in the row is the person who recieves the pic. Otherwise someone is going to end up linearting their own fanart in the middle or something. So person 1 sketches, 2 linearts, 3 colours & 4 recieves a pretty fanart. And the same all the other ways around. But yeah, just an idea, don't let me be go being disruptive or anything ^^; </fail>


There's enough for it to work for the UK guys :B I just dunno if there would be four of us. Presuming we've got Clou doing it too, I'm sure Froggy would be happy enough to join in, and that makes three~
(Also saves on postage costs. Woo geographical convenience!)

YOU are brilliant! 8D

Three steps sounds like a GOOD plan. 83

I think some people (like, say, myself) might prefer to combine sketch/lineart rather than color/shading. So I think we'll let each group decide on an individual basis, still, what those three steps are. It could be sketch/line/color, or lines/color/shading, or some other crazy combo that you guys think is best!

Group US/Canada 2! I know I'm already on one group, but I'm going to go ahead and join you guys to save you from sitting and waiting forever. &#124;D (Plus I have lots of free time, and my group

Which means we have three people and can sort out details whenever you guys are ready. 83 (Which means sometime tonight I'll probably drop Kned and Meep notes on DA to sort things out if they don't get to me before I get to them.)

EDIT//

Oh hey! Group US2 has figured out details. 83

For Meep's picture:
-Kned sketches
-Diane lines/colors/shades

For Kned's picture:
-Meep sketches/lines
-Diane colors/shades

For Diane's picture:

I'd love to start an International group, if people don't mind. 8D I've rediscovered my liking for art and feel like working on just a few definite pictures won't take too much time for me to give up on them. xD

Sure thing. o: Depending on how long this exchange takes, though, I might have to change addresses at some point, but I'll be sure to keep everyone in my group updated on that. :B

...Now I should probably pick what I want art of ;orz
