Evening space cowboys.!
"The Great Jedi War is already in Phase II at this point and you didn't post your report yet, Vyr? What's wrong with you?"
In my defence I was waiting for stuff. I hope what I present here will remedy my alck of posting lately.
As I said, GJW XII is already in Phase II and boy is it eventfull (hue) and submissionfull (that one doesn't really work). I'd like to talk about some of the specifics from my side of the front.
...I'd like to say thanks to you guys who participated in Phase I graphics comps. We've had 149 unique participants and entries to those two comps and it gave me a headache grading all of them. In fact, it still does since I haven't finished yet.
But, that's the beauty of this competition.The more you post and make my job more difficult, the better event it is. So give me more entries! Feed meh! :P
Let me just put this out and you judge it for yourself...
The seal is based on traditional looks from GJWs past, with a dash of new. I hope you enjoy the shiney. :)
Remember to participate in Event long comps for those bonus braging rights if you win.
Do all the things!
First release of this year. Hope you guys enjoy the new skins.
Everyone loves surveys! Not really, but this one is necessary.
We've created a survey that you can fill in and, hopefully, influence what way future graphics in the Club move forward. We're looking for honest opinions, so type in anything you can think of that you consider important.
Let’s start with:
If you’re interested in joining the TG group and sharing your art, be sure to click the image below:
Wally asked: #asktheherald will the Voice be able to use some of the character art created for the GJW event for Collective character sheets and wiki articles? :D
If the Voice gets permission, sure :P
Follow up: #asktheherald how does the Voice go about that :p
#askthemember :P (i.e. using member submissions on the wiki requires member approval)
Zujenia asked: #AsktheHerald. If an interested artist drafts up an outfit idea or several for the populace that the Herald staff nd the members like, would the Herald staff digitize it should the artist not have the means too.
If it fits into our theme for a particular release, sure. But I can't promise we will. We'll probably do a member-driven release at least once.
A'lora asks: Followup #asktheherald How are release themes determined, or is it just based off of what a members of the Herald staff decides on while making a new robe?
We try to follow specific shows/episodes of shows/movies. So December will always be a movie theme. If there is a particularly interesting outfit in Rebels, we may go with that theme. Otherwise I usually determine a theme based on what we need.
Zujenia asks: #AsktheHerald Would we ever see some not horribly feminized poses for the women clothing images? (They're all beautiful, but gosh that pose is aggressively 'feminine')
If you suggest a pose/paper doll I'll consider it :)
Edema asks: #AsktheHerald do we have a list of the vehicles used by the Collective to refer too? I tried going via possessions, but got lost
Best to look at their Possessions page, but you're not limited to that
Follow up: So I can pick any canon vehicle that would fit their fluff and draw it as a collective version?
Tarvitz asks: I have one serious one please. #AsktheHerald - With The Battle of Nancora. may I ask how many liberties we are allowed to take? Sorry, by that I mean does this need to be the entire battle, a few units across a portion of it, or even just a symbolic duel between two combatants?
It has to be a landscape picture. The focus should be on a wider view that a duel, for example. Beyond that you're free to do as you please.
Zujenia asks: #AsktheHerald Would the staff consider hosting hangouts where we play themed concept drawing games like the drawfy channel does on youtube? those with the ability to paricitpate can pop in for the challenge.
[In reply to Zujenia Kait] I would but, unfortunately, the difference in timezones means many people won't participate. I've tried Hangout and streaming. neither have really worked well due to timezones :/ It's not really realistic until we get more active artists and make a free platform out of "hangouts". I.e. I don't have to be there to host and people can just join and draw for fun
This report, and several of the ones to come, I would like to feature Brotherhood artists.
This time it's: Alara Deathbaneh. Check out the devArt page, like, share, enjoy, talk to her about it. Our artists are awesome and they need support. Next time I’ll feature someone else.
Alara's latest work (so cool xD):
That’s it for now, folks. This is your friendly neighborhood Herald, signing out.
See you, space cowboys!
