I Have an Idea I'd like to float by everyone over at /fan/.
I've done some of the math and It looks like I could do full color T-Shirts for around $15 dollars before shipping. I'd like to get some ideas for graphic people like for Tee's and if We can get some good non-copyrighted art that people would like too see on some shirts, what I'd like to do is start some pre orders.
If I can get 25 preorders, I can pay for a run of 50 shirts and then start shipping them out.
Is this something you guys would like to see?

MLP: Cards With Friends Anonymous 3118[View]

Hello, Everypony,

I have been working on a trading card game project for some time now, and I am trying to get as many helpful people involved as I can. If we are successful, we will create a tabletop gaming experience for the MLP fan community that is both unique and fun.

Currently I have a working Rulebook that is subject to change as testing proceeds. This is an incredibly daunting ongoing project- and as founder, I cannot do it on my own! In order to bring this game to a playable state, I need a few things from my fellow deviants.

1: Testers- Once we start getting this ball rolling, I need people to help me work out the kinks of the game's mechanics.

2: Artists- That's right. These cards need art that is both exciting and diverse and, even at my most productive- I cannot rightly do up to 100 cards worth of art. It would be boring and I would rather have this be an opportunity for everyone to get their work out there!

If, at this moment, you are interested in giving me a little-or a lot- of help, please give the DA group a look:


Current Rulebook can be found here: http://fav.me/d5jdxcd

I gave your game a read through, and I like it. Are the only cards you designed the Fluttershy and Applejack cards, or do you have more locked away? I have some card ideas for Dash, if you're interested.

Also, will there be neutral cards? Can you have cross element decks?

Hello /art/!

I just re-started working on my " art ". I would like to improve my drawings but tumblr and dA is simply puts too much pressure on me.

I would like to ask if I can post my " art " here to get some critique and feedback?

Be afraid I am really a beginner and only have pencils to work with.

Have a nice day!

Hi /art/, I've been having a little trouble lately…

I haven't really been happy with my lining or lighting lately. I'm OK with shading and sketching but I can't seem to find a method for inking/lining my sketches that I like.
Also does anyone have a general guide on how to light different materials.

Need help with Fallen Castle mod Dlesang 3109[View]

So I'm having a lot of fun and would like to make my first location mod for Oblivion. Yes, I'm aware that most people aren't playing Oblivion anymore, but I'm currently unable to mod Skyrim due to nif issues.

The location I want to make first is the Fallen Castle in Everfree Forest, as seen in S1E2. The show only shows two rooms, and I would like to make it larger than that. If anyone can help by offering refs for the location and suggestions of what to include, please say so below.

The image is from a MLP race mod I'm working on to make each of the mane six characters into a playable race. I'll be making lots of stuff for that, too.

The Artist Questions on Ethics and Practices General 787[View]

As an artist, I'm interested in what our little drawing community thinks of these questions I'm about to list off. These are common to come across within art communities, and answers typically fall within a wide range of opinions. Also, some of them may help other artists network.

When it comes to drawing fan art:
>Do you feel it is ethical for people who draw fan art to copyright their works?
>Do you feel it is right for artists to sell their works if they contain intellectual property of another artist? I.E. selling fan art of Twilight Sparkle.
>How do you personally define a parody? At one point does a parody become copyright infringement?
>When it comes to pricing original content, if one were to sell it, what do you feel should go into what determines the final price?
>How much value do you place in original content? Do you feel original content is usually ignored over popular fan art?
>What is your opinion on pornography? Is it selling out to draw pornographic content to appeal to a wider audience? Is this wrong?
>How do you promote yourself in the artist community, and what has worked for you? Do you use Tumblr, Deviantart, Twitter, or another social network? Which ones do you find work the most towards your favor, and why is that?
>East vs. West. Do you prefer traditional art? Anime? A mixing of both? What style of cartoons do you find the most expressive and interesting?

File: 1349116019747.jpg (296.74 KB, 700x600, 5.jpg)

Honestly, I don't feel it's ethical. The idea of a copyright on a work that contains IPs you didn't create is not only illegal, but is insulting to the original artist and shows the highest disrespect. It's basically plagiarism in my eyes; I don't care how detailed or different in style it ranges from the original work. The moment you copyright such a thing, it's using someone else's idea to boost your own fame and making it yours. That is stealing. I have made an attempt to remove any and all copyrights I have put onto works that involve IPs I do not own.
This follows suit with my first answer, for the exact same reason. Have I been guilty of this? Hell yes I have. Do I still do it? I try not to. I've been refusing works lately that involve copyright characters. Of course, I still have weak moments, I'm ashamed to admit.
I believe the pricing goes into the time spent and effort put into a work, on a general scale of how much you believe your worth and what you're doing compared to the ability of whoever is purchasing your works. Someone hires you because they cannot do what they're asking themselves, and if they're willing to pay for it, it must be valuable to them. Nothing in life is free, and talent and dedicated practice should not be squandered or ignored as cheap. Artists should honestly demand more for their works, and learn to adjust to the community they serve to produce the maximum output they feel they can gain. The 'Starving Artist' who does not know the value of his work, that sells a complete painting for $5.00 is a fool in my eyes.
I value original content high over fan art. I feel it is ignored, and I feel our generation is dumbed down by the lack of innovation and the overall mindless copying of someone else's work to boost their own status. There is improving on existing ideas and then there is out right blatant ripping off. You fail to see improvements most of the time, especially in communities that are supported by fandoms. Furries and Otakus make up the majority of those I find at fault for the lack of creativity in today's youth.
I feel that an artist should be prepared to appeal to any and all audiences, and that in this world there will always be people who will find such works appealing. Ignoring that part of reality is ignorant, to

#Accepting Commission

Ratburn here to make some draws.
I don't do r34, but aside from that pretty much anything else.

Unless requested otherwise, I'll post all finished commissions in this thread.

Paypal is [email protected] I do 1/2 up front 1/2 after it's finished. I'll send you a low quality thumb once it's done, but to get the final size I have to confirm the final payment.

Almost projects will be finished within a week or less. For larger commissions, I will provide updates so adjustments, if needed, can be made on the fly. I will make on the fly adjustments for free, so long as they are minor. I determine what is minor.

I will make revisions at the end of the drawing for an additional fee of 5$ per change. Changes must be minor, and I will determine what is minor or not. If you are completely unsatisfied, I will do a complete redraw for an additional quarter of the original cost. I do not, however, give refunds. Once you send me money in paypal, consider it spent. The only exception whatsoever is if I am for some reason unable to finish your artwork.

Hello /ART/ I have some news for you all. Crimson!lsUMWqdC0k 235[View]

Ever wanted to get some notice on your art? Have a deviantArt account? Want to be in a established pony art group and make the community stronger here and there? I know you do, that's why you are reading this.

Well here is my news. I have a deviantArt group that is just waiting for new artists to share their work, we only have a few posting art as of now. Anonthony recently came with me asking if I could share my group with art for artists to get noticed. I was very excited to help. So here is the thing.

This group would do well with some members and as founder I promise no artist gets turned down. There is not a lot of folders for different art as of yet, but there will be as time goes on and we as a community can work together.

Now I know what you're thinking, or something like it… Great, okay wonderful text wall crimson, but where is the link? Well the link is right here http://pony-after-dark.deviantart.com/

Signing up on deviantArt is free and easy. After that ask to be a member and we will add you.

For the first few weeks accepting everyone might be a challenge but I am hoping to use this thread to help work out all the kinks. Join in. The group is ready for you and your art.

In the future there might be events, even contests… But this can only be done with people in the group and that means you!

Yes you reading all of this text.
