Hello mlpchan /art/! You can call me Epony~, and I'm a co-founder on PAD's DA group. "EponymouslyEponymous" there since Eponymous and Epony were taken I believe.
As you all well know, or at least I'd assume you can all find out easily enough, PAD's "pony after dark" art group on deviantart is, and has now been for a bit, fully open to you guys to come in and join us and share your art with the people of PAD, your fellow /art/ists, and the whole of this site really. (Was there too many commas in that long sentence? Oh well, I do that, heh… see) Here's a link if you are curious and happen to not have heard about it - http://pony-after-dark.deviantart.com/
Anyways, I'm making this OP post to let you guys know that if you want to share art in "pony after dark", please leave us a comment explaining how you found us in your invitation request. That way we can avoid the guys that just search pony groups on DA and join every single one they can, or whatever… yes, we get those. And it's not like we're picky, but we just want to know who our group members are and to keep the group somewhat tighter and more intimate… (stop thinking like that~). Basically, we have only a few Co-Founders and the group was originally designed just for close friends of PAD to share stuff. But now we have an awesome new group of people coming in that we're happy to welcome in! We just don't know all you guys necessarily, but we'd love to get to know you.
So, again, please leave an comment when you ask for an invitation. Say something like, "Hi my name is -name-, and I found you guys through mlpchan's art group"! And if you don't have art to contribute, following requires no invitation… or maybe you think you'll be inspired to try some art of your own and will want an invitation anyways. Let us know. We can only glean so much from reading your DA page.
So… see you guys around and I I'd love to see more and various art.
Also, if there's any mods in the area, a sticky would be appreciated, but if you don't find that necessary, that's fine too. Thanks!
