Many thanks to Apofiss for making this group possible :tmb:

Current Theme:

Monday, June 25th to Wednesday, July 30th-ish, when SC's end

Create an image of a place you've been to in a dream, or one you've completely made up. Floating islands, upside down staircases and doors on the ceiling, anything goes! Just keep it web-size ;) 800x600

The TRF Artists Guild, much like the TRF Writers Group, is a place open to all members to post their art for comments and critque.

FAQ

Q: How many entries can I submit?
A: As many as you like. Considering using thumbnails or links for multiple entries in one post, though, so nobody's computer crashes trying to load the thread :p

Q: But I'm not a good drawer/painter/photographer/etc. Can I still enter?
A: Of course! TRF members of all skill levels and experience are encouraged to participate.

*NEW*
Q: Can I submit photo manipulations?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I submit a comic? It has writing in it, but does it still count as art?
A: Yes.

Q: Does it have to be TR related?
A: Nope.

Here's how it works: (partially nabbed from Star Girl :o ):

- Every two weeks one person picks a theme. (Quasimodo has chosen the 1st theme)

- At the end of each round, the person who chose the theme chooses someone else who he/she feels followed the theme 'best'. Honourary mentions can also be made for the most "Hilarious", "Avante Guard", or any other titles the theme chooser wants to give ;)

- Those participating then have two weeks to draw, paint, render, sculpt, photograph, or manipulate some form of medium - it can consist of whatever your mind takes you to when you think about the theme.

What if I am chosen to pick the next theme?:

- If you decide you don't want any chance of being chosen to pick the next round's theme, then make a post in this thread that says so.

- If you chose the last theme and it's time to pick the next person to choose a theme, try to mix it up a little. If a certain person picked the last theme or even the one before the last one, try to choose someone different for the next one. That way it will get around to everyone getting a chance to make a choice.

Also:

Be constructive in what you say (e.g., "your drawing would look better with more contrast", not "your drawing sux0rs!" ). Keep discussion on topic - some chatter is fine as long as this thread doesn't lose its focus.

Yah I know, right? :p
4th o' July is the closing date :)
I went ahead and took the liberty of choosing the first theme :whi:
but I'm gonna be as objective and fair as possible in choosing who to pass the torch to :D

Cooly, there is gonna be some stiff competition here.....like seriously stiff:D

Who chose the theme? ( who do I need to cosy up to? :p)

EDIT: Wow!!! Quasi thats the best theme ever in the history of themes.....only an intelligent, sensitive, wonderful person such as yourself could possibly have chose it :mis: :p


Considering that Guild is such a great word, will this be stickied??

Sounds fun! I might give it a go.

This is a wicked cool theme. I'm excited.

It's great to see some enthusiasm so early on :D I'll most likely end up extending the deadline since these things take time to catch on at first.

:yah: entries already :yah:

@ Lavinder - great work :tmb: and yes, photo manipulations are totally OK, in fact, it'd probably be one of the best ways to follow this theme. *updates FAQ*

Unsticking for now as it's quite inactive, plus considering amount of stickied thread.

Oh, it's unstickied :(

I've been so busy lately (work and all) so I haven't had much time to do anything:o I think a lot of people are focusing on the SCs too. .....

I'm gonna try to have something ready by tomorrow :)
Is there an ending time Quasi? Or is tomorrow too late anyway...?

Lavinder That is GORGEOUS :D

Yeah, you're entering!

I'm working on a drawing right now of a place I haven't necessarily dreamed about, but more or less daydreamed about. It also has Lara Croft in it (no it's not anything perverted :ton:). Is this acceptable?

^ Of course, although Quasi will make the final judgement on whether it fits into the theme or not.

Okay, firstly I would like to apologise for these in advance. I did it in 30mins because I wanted to enter something and i'll be gone for the rest of the day. I've been so busy lately (as said before) that I didn't have time to focus on this, so I'm sorry.

Secondly, the idea is that Lara is in a deep dream. She hears her mothers voice beckoning to Avalon (The silouette in the doorway is Amelia). The image of Avalon is based on the Concept Art released for Legend. So I can't really claim originality. I could try and convince you that the lack of details symbolises "cloudy" vision within the dream.....but it was really due to time constraints:o

I am posting as links as i'm not sure whether my sleeping/dreaming Lara is pushing the boundaries (mods can delete if necessary:)). There are two but they are essentially the same picture, except the second contains "finger blending". I wasn't sure which I preferred so I'll leave it up to you Quasi, to decide which to judge :wve:

Great work so far! @Verspertea- sure, entries can feature Lara ;)

As for rules and deadlines...with the SC's going on, I'm gonna be laissez-fair with the deadlines and choose an entry/next person to pick a new theme around the time the SC's end - July 30th.

@BloodstormMaoa- the first one reminds me of the lost realm level in AOD :)

:eek: Those are GREAT. Wow! I especially like the first one, though the second is executed very nicely (ah, the miracle workings of finger-smuding :jmp:). Impressive for a 30 minute drawing. It'd probably take me like.. two hours to do something like that. Great concept, too. :tmb:

That a huge relief. Thanks!

You've extended again??:( I wish I hadn't submitted that piece of crap now:o Makes sense though...I guess. At least there may be some more submissions :)

Cooly, although I'm sorry it dredged up memories of AoD :mis:

Vespertea are you still entering?

Oops....lol :vlol:

I think it could work though. You'll notice that the writers group has become quite inactive recently too :whi:

EDIT: I meant to say (but had to go). If you wish it die....die it shall :p
