Hello, @DCFanArtClub ! We’ve got so much happening that I thought a roundup post would be the best way to share the news.
First off, a quick shoutout to some of our newest members!
If you’d like, please feel free to introduce yourselves over at our Meet the Artist thread. Even if you’re here to watch rather than draw, we’d love to hear which characters and series are your favs!
A quick reminder that you’ll have a chance to vote for your favorites in the DCFANDOME art competition next weekend, Sept. 12-13. On those dates, VISIT THIS LINK to vote for your favorite entries.
We have several members of the club in the competition, so please stop by to cheer them on!
OUR CHANCE TO CREATE FAN ART CLUB EMOJIS: DUE SEPT. 18
Our glorious mods have offered club members the opportunity to get their own set of emojis for use on DCU! If you have any suggestions, you can submit images in the comments.
- SIMPLE is best.
- Avoid backgrounds when possible.
- These images will be super tiny, at 25x25 pixels.
OCTOBER CHALLENGES: HEAD’S UP!
Are you familiar with Inktober? It’s a 31-day art challenge that takes place worldwide. Each day of the month has a different prompt, which artists are challenged to illustrate in ink.
A bunch of us took part in the challenge last year, before the DC Fan Art Club existed. You can see it here.
It gets intense! So, rather than try to juggle Inktober with club challenges, I’m going to do the following:
For October 2020, instead of weekly challenges, I’m going to create another DC Inktober thread.
Instead of a specific monthly challenge, I’ll create a post in Fan Creations where you can drop any autumn/Halloween art all month long.
DCU HALLOWEEN SCAVENGER HUNT
All of the club leaders are collaborating to create a MULTI-CLUB CROSSOVER EVENT - the DCU Halloween Scavenger Hunt!
At the start of the month, the mods (?) will post a list of items/tasks that community members have to find or complete.
- Carve/paint a pumpkin with the logo of a DC character
- Take a spooky photo of one of your action figures by moonlight
- Find a comic panel that features any hero fighting a monster
Here’s where you come in! As the Fan Art Club, everyone is counting on us to think of some creative items for the hunt. Please submit your ideas below!
Whew, I think that’s everything.
Questions or comments, give a shout!
The mods are creating club emojis! In the comments, drop some images that you think would be good for our club. Simple pics, with NO backgrounds!
There’s going to be a community-wide Halloween scavenger hunt! The club has been asked to submit ideas for items/tasks to complete. Drop those in the comments, too!
