Artist Mentorship

#1 Post by descats » Sat Apr 23, 2016 6:52 am

Hello everyone.

I just decided to start a topic after lots of lurking forever around the forums.

I'm working on my own Visual Novel ideas but I realized I'm a lonely artist -none of my friends has any idea about art :( -.

So I was wondering if someone would be interested in making a group to share drawings, writtings and ideas in a regular basis. I offer my feedback as an equal student.

I'm interested in communicating but forums are too slow for my liking.

Pd.: I'm a weirdo so don't mind me, haha.

//interested

I would like to ask, where do you intend to have this group created? I am guessing that you would want to have this in somewhere with instant messaging and the like.

Out of interest:
You have DeviantArt, is it going to be like that or what are your plans?

My idea was using something along the lines of Skype chat or similar.

I would like it to be more of a conceptual, beta-testing discussion on top of art critique. Somewhere to share all the WIPs of our own projects as we work on them instead of just leaving random comments like deviantart. I understand there's more people as myself who work mostly solo in their own projects and have difficulties on getting steady feedback without having to get heavily involved in other project's.

I hope this answers your question.

Is there going to be some sort of skill requirement/age restriction in this group, or just open to anyone who wants their art screened?

Everyone can join. I don't believe in art elitism of any kind but I expect a minimum level of maturity and respect in discussion.

Some people might want to share some nsfw content (nudity/gore/dark themes) for that case I assume we could create a separate conversation or private messaging system to sort it out.

By the way because I'm especialized in Art/Drawing I posted in Art to pander to other drawing fellows but anyone from any media is welcome!

:mrgreen: Wooo!

I guess you sign up by just saying you want to join? Haha.

I'm waiting until the weekend to start the convo group, to give people some time to join in the thread -hopefully-. Then I'll PM everyone my Skype account and start the group conversation.

And that's the plan.
