11:29 am - Another topic

silvereelve
I suck at making up topics, but... because we haven't had a new topic in a month I'm going to go ahead and post one.
The topic is Ninja's which are the opposite of pirates, kinda.

9:48 pm - New topic!

silvereelve
Okay so it looks like no one's added a new topic in almost a month, so I thought I'd try and revive things a little.
The only theme I could come up with is:
Pirates!
Any kind of pirate will do.
Have fun and share what you've come up with.

2:37 pm - New Jam

silvereelve
I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, but it's been a little while since the last art jam post. So I though I'd propose a new jam for this week.
To even out the DC and because I'm itching to draw Spidey, the topic is The Avengers.
Avengers
Anyone who has ever been a member of any of the Avenger teams. XD

12:41 pm - CHOW: The Black Queen

cowkitty
I thought this was an awesome art jam concept, so wanted to pass it along.
http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92858

THE BLACK QUEEN

The year is 2025. The Black Queen is the figure-head of the British- Japanese empire known as the GBNR.

The GBNR are one of 3 super-states at constant warfare with each other. It is the hundredth year since the forming of these states. Our queen is a divine leader as well as a military commander.

Her appearance should bring together Victorian and traditional Japanese aesthetics but also take into account the 100 years that have passed since the joining of these two cultures.

Now... concept!

8:18 am - Art Jam: Justic League

cowkitty
Time for another art jam! Subject this week? The Justice League!



Really, I'm just mirroring the topic already set over at the Drawing Board: http://www.drawingboard.org/viewtopic.php?t=53557

I'm hoping that will give newer members an idea of how art jams work, and maybe a little inspiration too. Any character who has ever been in the league is fair game! :D Post sketches, WIP, finals, etc

12:49 pm - Featured Art Jams

cowkitty
LJ ate my long post. >_< Short version: Everyone can post now. Please post pictures or links to other art jams. Here's a couple.

CHOW #63 - Guest Host:D-BAKER. Topic: Iorek Byrnison
Iorek Byrnison is the exiled king of the Panserbjørne (armoured bears). He forged his own armour from sky iron. His armour is his soul.
Like all Panserbjørne, Iorek follows a very strict code of contract, and will in no situation betray a promise he has made. He possesses incredible strength, and like many of his kind is an expert smith.

DSG 1214:B-Movie: BRAIN-EATING ZOMBIE ASTRONAUTS ARRIVE @ BIG-BRAINED ALIEN HOMEWORLD
http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92454

[ After the Earth was completely over-run with the undead, the zombies ran out of tasty brain materials. ]

[ Unbelievably, they have either managed to create their own large spaceship, or have commandeered something from an alien invasion fleet... ]

[ And have just arrived at the homeworld of these large-brained creatures. ]

[ Hooray! ]

1:20 pm - Art Jam: She-Ra

cowkitty
I was on a random She-Ra kick this week, so that'll be the first character in our art jam. I mean, who doesn't like the Princess of Power? I had dolls AND the bedsheets! :D



Here's some links for reference:

As always, post your image in the comments, not to the community. (Horray for organization. :) )

1:10 pm - Not quite dead yet!

cowkitty
I think I'll go for a walk now...!

I've been thinking about this community for a while now. It's been a terribly long time, and I'm sorry I let it go for so long. I love Livejournal, and I really want there to be an active, fun artist community on my friend's list again. With that in mind, we're going to change up the format a bit here:

Not only will I start posting model photos again for reference on Mondays, but we'll also do an art jam once or twice a week (Wed and Fri perhaps?). What's an art jam? It's when a mod posts a subject or character as a theme, and everyone does their own artistic interpretation of it. (Remember the Bat Girl Meme? :D)

The art can be a sketch, doodle, finished work, animation-- whatever. Have fun, and be creative. :D

If you have any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc on this topic or anything else in Figure_Muse, feel free to post. :D

9:31 pm - Technical Difficulties.

seicat
Ok, guys, I'm trying to get the pretty pictures back but I think my previous host ate them. I'm trying to find a new host and recover the images but I can't promise anything. Meanwhile: if anyone has anything they want posted and can host it let me (seicat) or aranil (Or cowkitty if she's not busy.)

I'm still having internet issues, folks.  Road Runner keeps not working at the first hint of a thunderstorm.  Of course, this being Florida, there's a storm almost every day... doh...

12:46 am - Welcome!

cowkitty
A big welcome to all of our new members! With the new activity in this community, I've been asked one question more than another:

What's this about permission to post? Do I need it?
Currently only mods post the photos (two a week) so we can keep it a bit focused. We may change this in the future once the community grows more and we see what direction it wants to go in. ^__^; Basically, we create the threads, and all community members can post in the threads. You do not need permission to comment.

Remember all members can comment and show their work in the threads. Basically, reply to the photo you're using. :)

If you have any more questions, comments, suggestions, recommended photos, etc, feel free to reply here!
Thanks for joining! :D
