Animus has been going on for quite a while--plenty of time for players to build up really fantastic CR and go through a whole slew of events (planned and impromptu)--so Zen and I were thinking: what if we compiled an IC scrapbook or photo album of sorts? I've been taking sketch requests for a few weeks now, Zen has offered to color them, but the fanart meme we had last month says that we're obviously not the only artists that have drawn stuff about the happenings of the Tower. This could be a fun project for all of us--long-term, definitely, but I think ultimately very rewarding!
The organization of this collection is mostly undecided. If we're going for a photo album theme, we'd have multiple sections for specific character headshots, family sections, specific events and gatherings, and so on. No outside fanart or icons here; all pictures would be drawn as if taken within the Tower (bonus points if a specific character starts this project in the game itself!). There'd be spots for the Admins (glamoured and un-glamoured versions, where applicable), all characters requested (dropped and active), possibly honorable mentions (for characters left at home but still sorely missed)...what's included is really up to those participating.
We could have done this over Plurk, but this way we get the full range of people interested and we can keep things a lot better organized. A questions post is enclosed; if you'd like to sign up as an artist, comment with your name and what kinds of art you're willing to do, as well as any pictures you have already done that you'd like to offer. If you have a request for a specific artist, just comment to their post with the request and they'll get to it when they can. If you have a more general request for anyone involved, just make a separate comment and artists can offer their services for it.
Note: This is a fun project for fun!! We don't expect anyone to start taking commissions, nor do we want people stressing out over getting requests done or not having their request answered or whatever. Silly sketches are fine. As this would be an ICly-distributed scrapbook that's trying to paint things positively, it would be safe to assume that submissions should be more-or-less SFW, keeping in mind that as a horror RP some gore is unavoidable, and that the humor of a crudely-drawn stick-figure Ruana with "huge bitch" written over her face would be appreciated enough to be an exception. Conversely, if you'd rather draw just good ol' fanart or anything else that you don't think would be shown ICly (i.e. if you do want to draw something NSFW), just mark it as such and we can make a separate section for that, too! Basically, we don't expect grand works of art, nor is there any looming deadline to get any of this done. Enjoy yourselves! Appreciate the artistry of your fellow muns! Profit!
