Hi again :)
Some time ago I asked you what were your thoughts about a group for users of both dA and sg. Although answers weren't that many, most of them were positive about the creation of such group. link to that thread
Well, let's try!
Once there, post or send a note (either to me or to the group) with a link to your steam account. this is needed to
It's not a public group to avoid people entering for giveaways. Since we are at it, let me state it clearly: this is not a group for giveaways! sure, there would probably be some in the future, but its main focus is create and share our works :) don't want people to join to be able to enter 1-2 more giveaways one day.
I would have avoided the Steam group altogether but the dA one doesn't have a "public" forum, only one for admins (don't know why).
but hey! also me winning all of the themes then! :D
Step 4: Profit!
Some more stuff:
Definitely forgetting something.. oh, well, will update based on your thoughts/requests/doubts/whatevers
Posting appreciation comments here could be easily missed by authors, so you may want to comment on the relative work page on dA to make sure they read and know you like what they do! I'm sure they'll appreciate it ^_^

Thought they were public by default.. should be fixed now
I know, but I don't have a solution about #2 :\
we can work on that togheta now! :D
Hey. Why not :) I now mostly use website and my Art Station but hey, I have a Da account :)
Welcome to the first members! :D

Meanwhile, in real Sardegna
Was going to post this first, but that one is more relevant =P
Sent a request <3
That me <3
I returned on my DA after like 2 years. Oh God.
Ps. Sent a request.
Bet your account missed you :'(
Yeah, funny how that happens. 😉
Yeah, right? XD
I don't think I'll be able to keep up with it monthly, but I'll definitely drop by :) It's been a while since I've posted anything on DeviantArt, since I have an unhealthy habit of not finishing my work and/or deleting my work right after completion.
eh, don't think anyone will participate every month :)
it's not mandatory anyway! so, don't worry ^_^
I know that feeling though :\
I've got plenty of works "finished" which I'm not satisfied with, that'll probably stay in WIP folder forever -_-
I know! But I'll make sure to check it out whenever I can.
My laptop has a very limited storage space, so I just delete my old WIP to make space for the new ones... the new, WIPs. Ha, yup.
I'm just wondering though, are you gonna participate in the group event as well?
I plan to make announcements in the Steam group, should trigger a pop-up notification to all members.
Also, I think you get a notification on dA whenever a new blog post is made (not sure about this though)
Nooo, don't do it! buy some external memory :(
or use free cloud services if you can't afford one, just don't delete 'em! you may regret it one day :(
I intend to ^_^ All the more if I won't be the only one choosing themes :)
Still have no idea what to do for the current theme though XD
That'd be great :D!!
On a side note: May I suggest the option of a random medium/style (that is traditional and digital art friendly) that goes along with the monthly theme to encourage members to experiment? For example: The next month's theme is the meaning behind [a particular type of] flower. (Optional... Side Quest [of sorts!]) Abstract painting... in watercolor. hahaha.
I'll take note of that~ I used to upload some of my work in image storage sites, but they eventually got deleted. I suppose I'll need to change my save space to Dropbox or something lol :p
As for the current theme, I'm SO glad you've listed some examples for us on dA!!! I've decided to include the SG mascot space kitty on my painting +_+. Even though I've never painted cats before (I've shown to my friends on my WIP and one of them said it looks like a koala XD I might've added a few more pounds to the kitty. Too much lasagna, I guess.)
I've realized I forgot to thank you for creating this opportunity for artists to engage in something fun. ; - ; Thanks!
Edit: I've found some really realistic paintings lol
oh, that's a nice idea.
My idea was to range from generic to more detailed themes from month to month, but giving both an easy and an harder one could do it too :) Or an extra theme, as per your "side quest" :)
I don't know about the media restriction though, 'cause I don't already know if everyone wants to join with a drawing (I, for one, would like to participate with drawings, photos and who-knows-what-else) ..there could be carpenters, writers, sculptors among us and we don't know it yet =P we'll see what happens :)
Those were more intended to make you smile, didn't want to influence anyone's mind! =P but they can also be useful, I guess XD
You're welcome :) I'm looking forward to see how this turns out :) hopefully, I'd also get to hone my skills, which is not a bad thing :)
lol! that's a very good painter!! XD
Yay, I knew the years of experience of relentlessly running back and forth between quests in RPGs would serve me well!
You're right, I wasn't thinking broad enough. I'm sure we could improvise somewhere down the road as a group~
Talking to you gets me fired up to work on my painting. Can't wait to see everyone's work as well :D!
Good luck working on your piece.
Thanks, same to you ^_^
Request is sent. :)
I have never used Deviantart before, I mostly put my work on Tumblr. This is making me really want to try though, having a prompt to draw every month would really push me to be less lazy.
Edit: ended up doing just that, I sent a request.
That's exactly the main point of this group.. push people to create more ^_^
just found at deviant i can gift llamas. fo' free.
llamas like no tomoro (not. only 1 per person. still, free)
(also found site needs ad-blocking. kinda mandatory, if you want to browse it)
They've been introduced in 2010 and you noticed them only now!? =P
<EDIT> if you're into badges, there are more to get, there's a group called Badges-of-DeviantART where you can find info on all of them :) </EDIT>
Little bump 'cause our very first entry has been submitted! ^_^
Gamecreature posted it in the group comment section instead of the journal entry comment section.
Request sent :)
