Clothing design contest!
Some years ago, I hosted a design contest for blue dresses
THE CONTEST IS COMING BACK!
As before, the entries will be judged based on design, not presentation-- as long as it's colored and the design is easy to see, it doesn't matter whether you are a pro artist or a beginner, or what your medium is. Everyone who participated in the previous contest will be invited back, and I may send out random invitations to people I know; this will also be posted in my journal (for watchers and visitors to see), in the forums, and I will once again ask Hellobaby
to help advertise.
I'm tentatively thinking the new contest should be for red/pink dresses. New commissions coming soon!
Impressed by my commission list? Want money? Note me!
As a few people know, and others may have guessed, I am waiting for some of my existing art to get done before commissioning new people. This is absolutely because that huge, huge
commission with fpbarros
is taking up a lot of my focus. I can barely keep up with my Patreon rewards from the ever-awesome Sephiramy
, so I'd be a fool to take on more! However, I'm compiling a list of people I intend to offer commissions to soon, which can be seen at the bottom of my "I am a commissioner"
If you want me to commission you before November 2015, send me a Note. Public reviews of artists!
Starting in May, I will be posting monthly reviews of artists I've commissioned.
I've often refused to do this in the past, because I felt unqualified to judge how my commissioning went and worried about damaging artists' reputations... or getting hatemail from their fans. Guys, hatemail is bad. Please do not engage in hatemail or in public shaming. But after a long consultation with Bishonenrancher (Lucy's Corsetry) and going through her website and YouTube videos, I realized that there's a good reason people ask me about specific artists and who I recommend: my experience is a valuable resource! Reviews don't have to be arbitrary, opinionated things-- they can be as professional and useful as the art itself.
The monthly reviews will be called The Commissioner's Report
; the May review will discuss fpbarros
, and anyone else who completes art for me in April.
I'm tentatively thinking The Commissioner's Report
should include a Blast From the Past!
-- reviews of OLD commissions. Yes/no? If there is an artist you want to hear about, or if you think I should NOT do this, please comment!
1. Commission reviews are on hold, because figuring out how to do them appropriately is tougher than I thought. This is still going to happen, just not yet.
2. I am now commissioning again. I have certain people in mind already, but if you'd like to advertise your work to me (or if you liked working with me and are in the mood to do so again), feel free to Note me.
3. The contest will start on June 1st. The theme will be red and/or pink dresses, and you can use any visual medium you want, as long as the design is clear. The contest will end on August 9th.
