@DCFanArtClub, here’s your new weekly! Please see the first reply below. I’d like to get your opinions on our future weeklies.
Due: Aug. 8, 2020 Tools: Illustration, photography, sculpture, paint, minecraft (added that last one for you, @Reaganfan78 )
How it works: How you depict him is up to you, but this week’s art should feature the too often underrated J’onn J’onzz !
Terms & Conditions: I understand that by participating in the DC Universe Community Forums that I am agreeing to the Fan Art Guidelines , which include not creating new storylines or characters, not soliciting for compensation or payment, and will follow the standards of the Community Guidelines .
Moving forward, to keep the weekly challenges from being too overwhelming, how would everyone feel about the following?
Weekly Challenges: Begin creating these around characters, rather than a theme. How you tackle the challenge would be completely up to you, in terms of tools, style, etc.
Monthly Challenges: These are where we would flex our creativity. I’d draw heavily from your suggestions in our Ideas/Brainstorming Thread, which we could put up to vote.
I’m not married to this idea, so I leave it entirely in your hands! I’m fine keeping the weeklies just as creative as the monthlies, if that’s what you prefer. I just don’t want our artists to feel burned out from the club.
Feel free to share your thoughts below, and thank you!
For weekly’s instead of a character I’d say you could do It based on a group (JLD, JLI, watchmen characters, Superman rogue gallery, etc.) to pick a character from or even something as simple as a one word random prompt. Coming up with weekly’s is a lot to ask.
Randomly assign people to come up the Weekly (must be approved) for folks that want to be involved?
In all honesty, I took kind of a bit of a break from this app in general. I think I just felt burnt out on it or something, so having a change in the way we do some things may help. The character specific idea sounds great to me, as again, it’ll hopefully help me to get something more “fresh” each week and also help me to expand my own arsenal of characters.
P.S., @CynicalPink I didn’t even realize until recently you were away. So I’m glad to see you are back and hopefully healthy again. Best wishes!
Hello @Cynicalpink, Thankyou so much for adding minecraft as art, I’ve been wanting to do Martian the Manhunter for a while, glad I’ve waited til now. Here’s Martian The Manhunter Minecraft, hope you guys like it!
We also did this for Inktober last year, but that was before the club was officially created.
So far, the poll is in favor of basing the weeklies on specific characters. I could always add an optional “creative bonus,” if that helps. E.g. The theme of the week is Batgirl, with a bonus of “drawn doing her dayjob” or “created with watercolors,” etc.
I’m trying to find that happy middle ground where people aren’t bored/turned off, but also not overwhelmed. As things stand, sometimes the weeklies seem to be good at inspiring creativity, but one week is not enough time to complete them.
This reply isn’t solely aimed at you, btw. You’re just around and good at giving me feedback, so you’re the victim.
