  TG yearbook progress
Posted by: DustWolf - 2019-09-02 20:57 - No Replies

Hey guys!

Last week we managed to settle on a graphical design for the yearbook.

Now the 2019 yearbook project is entering it's main stretch. From today until almost the end of the year, we will be working on the various chapters that go into the yearbook, according to the plan we agreed on.

The sequence in which we will do the chapters does not match the sequence in which they appear in the yearbook entirely, but the first one we start with will be near the start of the yearbook. It's the dedication to the reader:

According to the schedule we have until Thursday to get this chapter into the yearbook. I am looking forward to your help and feedback.

  Sketchtember Approaches!

Howldy, folks!

It's almost that time again! Sketchtember is upon us!

For those of you who aren't familiar, TG coordinated a creativity event last year for the entire month of September, in which participants who demonstrated some effort to practice their artistic abilities or improve them got 10 points per day of contribution!

The 2018 Sketchtember Challenge thread can be found here and it includes some of the incredibly awesome art some of our members contributed last year!

While we call it "Sketchtember", the medium of choice doesn't have to be limited to pencil or pen; if anything, the challenge was originally meant so people could practice for Inktober (which his already a thing in the art community) after brushing up on some of the necessary skills.

Thanks to @Syraphin Faelad, the 2019 Sketchtember Prompt Ideas thread has already been created, and members are putting some good ideas in for this year! I also added last year's prompts, and we may consider giving nudges for daily prompts for those who may not be sure what they want to try.

The aim here isn't to be competitive - it's to encourage artists to become more comfortable with their skills and to encourage connection and communication as artists help each other learn new techniques, gain confidence, and grow!

If your style of art may not fall into something that sounds "sketchy", don't fear! Reach out to me and I'll see if I can work with you to hook you up with points if you desire to participate in this challenge in your own way.

The initiative here isn't to conform to anything in particular, nor is it to feel stressed about producing content - it's about making a commitment to yourself to try to test your artistic skills.

If you end up making something really cool and you want it featured on TG's social media, let us know! We may have to be selective here, so please be patient and understanding.

If you're on DeviantArt and follow TG on there, you can also submit your work on TG's DeviantArt page! Reach out to me ( @Zefer Nezumi), @Moon-Moon or @LycanTheory for us to grant you permission to contribute your art there, if you haven't been approved already!

With all that said, the 10 point per day participation incentive from last year will still apply! In order to get the points, you have to show some progress for a given day - you can post on our Creativity channel in Discord, in your own art journal on TG, on the Sketchtember 2019 thread, or even submit to me privately if you would like points but are shy about posting the content publically.

As we move along with Yearbook production, we'd like for you to consider selecting your favorite Sketchtember submission for inclusion, but it's not mandatory! Please just do your best to let us know if you would like for us to include something you submit (and we'll make sure you are credited for the work).

Any questions or concerns would probably be best handled through the 2019 Sketchtember thread, so go take a peek and if you aren't sure about something, let us know there! The 2018 thread has background information that may be helpful too, and of course you can feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Ready? SKETCH... Go-oh, you have to wait two more days. This is just to psych you all up and give you time to get whatever supplies you need. Tongue

I'll give this another bump when it's time to submit!

I hope this Sketchtember turns out as amazing as last year's. ^^

  TG Yearbook 2019, week #4
Posted by: DustWolf - 2019-08-26 21:26 - No Replies

Hello everybody,

The plan for this week was to take all of our contributed designs and select the one we like best. However at this point we really just have one design, contributed by @Splitstripe.

I would like to invite everybody to take a look at it:

...and provide any feedback or thoughts you might have.

Whatever design we agree on by the end of this month is the one we will end up using for the yearbook.

EDIT: I forgot to mention this last time but I've increased the amount of points you get for contributing to the yearbook and posting art in the share your creativity forum. So if you have your sights on some piece of merch or just want to ensure an animal charity of your choosing gets some funds, being active here might be a faster way to get there.

Hi all! Hello

Asking for your help with the next stage of the yearbook again. Smile

Last time we've figured out what we're going to put in the yearbook and when and how we will get it done.

This week, we are trying to gather some ideas over what the yearbook's graphical design should look like. If you have any ideas or sketches to share with us, please let us know!

You have until the 25th of August to submit your suggestions, after which we will be going with what we've got and may no longer accept changes.

Hey guys,

The Yearbook 2019 is now well under way.

Last time we decided on what chapters will be in it, this week we decide what the titles will be and how the individual chapters are going to be accomplished. This is a key part in preparing the Yearbook plan, whatever we decide on now we will stick with throughout the project.

Your personal opinion on the individual parts is most welcome. Smile

You have until the 18th of August to submit your suggestions, after which we will be going with what we've got and may no longer accept changes.
