Does anyone know what happened to the Star Wars Artists Guild? The website seems to have died...
Try this site:
There are a lot of our favorite Star Wars professionals featuring work there--it's an awesome place to just drool over some of their great work!
Feel free to browse around our forum, too--look at gatodama's thread and Otis_Frampton's thread--both of these are LFL approved artists that post work here. Both participate in Artists Allied, I think. I'd also like to suggest a trip through the fantasy-land of wicktone's thread here--he's been a valued member for a long time and is now working professionally for a video game development firm--we all know he'll be LFL-endorsed one day very soon!
Not so sure about SWAG, but thanks for providing that link, FF! I just spent the last hour browsing at the artwork there.
I think it kinda died about a year ago. It sounded like it was becoming too much of a commitment for the volunteers involved. i remember reading in the forums that they were taking a hiatus, but never saw any evidence that they came back from it.
I applaud the work they did when it was live. They had some fantastic art over there.
Yeah, I wanted to request a pic off one of the guys there. He did a great pic of a Talz Jedi...
Yes, the volunteers did take a hiatus from SWAG and were hopefully going to return and push things forward again. It would seem that this did not happen. Whenever I try to acceess teh site I get a "Page Cannot Be Found".
A friend of mine I met on SWAG says they have mostlikely closed down for good. But, hopefully in the future we'll see another SWAG of sorts.
It would be a shame to lose access to all of the work that was posted there. I hope it's made its way back onto the web in one form or another.
I'm Gutted It's gone.
I'll put some of the art on my site, if anyone can get in contact with the creators let me know!
I have found a few pieces here and there through Google searches, but not a whole lot. The main stuff I've found was Beauty - Women from Star Wars: Fan Art which is a pretty cool site. I recognize all of those pictures from SWAG, especially the Zabrak female, I love that pic.
