so what's this nice shiny community for?
This community aims to bring artists together to share anything from techniques to resources to inspirations. You can also post your works and request critiques on them.

what constitutes an artist?
The 'arts' this community is focusing on are drawing, painting, and the occasional scultping, both traditional and digital. You are an artist if you do any of these.

what's this sketchbook thing i'm hearing about?
Basically you can make a post that you would use to post your art (WIPs or otherwise) to for safekeeping, documentation, or what have you.

Prompts? What prompts?
Yes, prompts. >B) We're thinking every other week or once a month, there will be prompts/exercises such as "THIS WEEK DRAW 5 DIFFERENT HAND POSITIONS" or "OVER THE COURSE OF THIS MONTH DRAW HEADS. LOTS OF THEM."

Where all the resources at?
We're going to have a massive master resource post that everyone can contribute to. It'll hold things like Photoshop brushes, tutorials, references (nude, clothed, animals, etc.) inspirations for art or color palettes, things like that.

okay now explain these tags to me!!
Please note that none of these tags are actually required but it does make looking up things a lot easier. mostly tentative examples while we figure things out.

sketchbook: [YOUR NAME/JOURNAL HERE] for your sketchbook/compilation post
resources: [RESOURCE TYPE HERE] for resource updates
program: [PROGRAM HERE] for specific programs
OPTIONAL: canon: [FANDOM HERE] for canon/fandom characters
OPTIONAL: canon: original for original things.

this faq is stupid.
that's because scarlet wrote it

speak, mortal, and ye shall receive.
