I think we've grown enough to have one. Put it here (http://sclegacy.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=8). One thread per artist. Move the SC art thread (http://sclegacy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=237) there and sticky it. Hold a monthly SC art contest or something. Be sure to post an announcement in all of the forums.

I would like a forum devoted to artistic pursuits. I mean, these dinky little Groups are a bit limited and limiting in my opinion; I want threads and threads as far as the eye can see devoted entirely to art and the myriad shapes and ways it can take.

The art community here is sizable but under-represented.


This baby agrees.

It was done for an illustration a while ago, Grunt, sans the text of course. Be that as it may, my points still stand. I mean, how many of us here are in the art field? Equiliari, Free Space, Zealot, Imdrunkontea, GnaReffotsirk, Sarov, myself... there are quite a few artists on the forum, most of whom are prominent members, even if they don't necessarily contribute artistically. Look at how much attention the SC Art Threads garners. And the art doesn't need to just be 2D static imagery. I'd love to see additional creative outlets, like writing or film. I'd love for the SCL cinematics people to sit down some time and write out a thread detailing their creative process, providing maybe some WiP shots.

Also don't forget apprentices like me XD

I have won some 1st and 2nd places in my school's writing contests
and some graphic design too... but only 2D static and animated.

I don't post my art here because they pale compared to yours, masters XD

Until I make a decent piece I'll just learn from your skills

Psh. I'm nothing great. I'm average if anything. I just pretend to be good because I need something to be proud of in my life.

Everything.

From beginning to end; concept art, sketches, animatic, modeling process, collaboration process between the artist and client (ie how you were from the SCL "I want this" and you go, "Sure"; they say, "That needs to be this way, not that way." etc.), where you got such mad skillz, how many bags of cheetohs and code red you went through...

... screens from any upcoming projects... >_>

Ask and ye shall receive. We're looking for a decent amount of threads/traffic to keep it viable though - so I hope it gets used as much you guys suggested hehe.

It's really cool that you guys are doing this, but I still can't shake the feeling that after a while of traffic, it might actually become harder for artists to get their stuff noticed by posting it here.

However, for the sake of everyone here, I really do hope I'm wrong :p.

Mengsk stands on deck of battlecruiser Leviathen, a Dominion flag waving in the background proclaiming, "Mission Complete."

Just gotta keep this thing up and running, and we're set. Good job, team!

I would like to motion for a name change from "Holo deck" to "Art deck/gallery/station/bridge/universe/etc/etc.

n00bonicPlague
04-29-2010, 10:30 AM
Yeah, I'm with Blade on this. Holo Deck is kinda vague. The name needs to have either the word "art" or the word "gallery" in it. Holo Deck sounds like it could be a place where people could watch live streams or something.

Not that I don't agree with the idea, but do you think that an art forum has the potential to have that much increased activity? will it attract more outsiders to participate? as far as I think 20 people at most will be participating in that art forum, do you think that's enough people to start up a forum?
I'm not against the idea just trying to think from an administrator's point of view..

I think it's more about organization than it is ropin' in the masses. It's the same reason we have strategy, lore, video, BW, map, and OT forums. We're giving things we already have a place. We believe we have just enough artistic types to make one, and so we're cleaning up the forums a little by giving artists a home. We're not trying to run a hotel. We're just getting the broke college kid out of the living room and into his own bedroom.

An announcement and/or redirect pertaining to the new art forum would likely help bring some people in.

The name (as n00bonic said, Holo Deck sounds more like a place for streams) and its status as a sub-forum also seems to be more hindering than anything.
