The Community.Wall was a project originally suggested by 1831. The idea is for each member to create their own 400x250px graphic (ex), and then we will collect and tile them into one giant kick-ass wallpaper piece. Each tile is special in that it will represent something meaningful from each member about digital art. Hopefully since we will be working with such small canvas sizes, it won't be too difficult for anyone to send something in. If we manage to finish a "wall" within a reasonable time period, then more iterations will be created in the future.
Since we're just kicking things off, I decided that it would be a good idea for the first theme to simply be freestyle. Create something that is witty, is visually amazing, and most importantly, represents your particular style as a digital artist.
Please don't send in any generic-anime-video game banners. The whole focus behind this is to tighten the community and for each person to express themselves, yet also to show off how artistic G&A can be. Be creative and just have fun with it.
The Deadlines --------------
Like I mentioned earlier, this is just a test run. Generally I'd like the entry period to last for about two weeks starting from the beginning of each "round." Knowing G&A however, this probably won't be the case. So for now, just send something in whenever you have the time to commit. Remember, you're only creating a 400x250px size piece, it shouldn't take you forever.
The Use Of This Thread ------------------
This thread will be used to submit your work, discuss and critique the entries, brainstorm on how we can improve the project, etc. If you have any questions please post them up and we will be happy to answer them. Remember, this is a community project, so everybody
is eligible to participate. Hopefully we will not only receive entries from the regulars, but also newcomers wishing to be involved in G&A.
October 2011: Freestyle ----------
October 2011 will be a freestyle month. This is just a pilot, so I'm excited to see what we will be able to come up with.
