    First of all, I want to give a warm welcome to everyone, both returning and new faces to this side of the boards. As these boards have been reborn, so too has Fan Art and you might notice that there are some differences than how we had last left the place.

    There is a new prefix system to make it easier to navigate about to find what it is that you are looking for:
    [Artist] for individual artist threads.
    [Gallery] for collection of works from artists.
    [Social] for the Artist Lounge Social Thread.
    [Artist Resources] for tutorials, critiques, useful information and tips.
    [Challenges] for the Artist Challenges, Gift Exchanges and other activities.
    [Art Archive] for older threads that date back from 31st December 2009.

    If you click on one of them, you will see only those threads that fall under that category.


    When it comes to posting your images, at this point in time, it is recommended to post them as a thumbnail or as a link. To post as a thumbnail, it is best to use photo hosting sites that supports a thumbnail link/code (such as photobucket). The code should look like this:
    Code:
    [URL=ImageLink][IMG]ThumbnailLink[/IMG][/URL]
    ImageLink = direct url to original image | ThumbnailLink = url of the thumbnail.

    For further information regarding the boards and thread issues, I recommend visiting Communications.


    *NEW*
    For those that are new to posting in these forums, I recommend looking over the first post of the Welcome to the Fan Art Forum and Thread Index thread.


    If you have any questions, feel free to post them here. :)

    I have an unusual question: is there a particular thread for really bad fan art and/or the things we created when we were children? Thank you.

    There is not a thread at the moment for works done when younger and starting out but always possible to do so :) Individual works are mainly contained within our own individual threads and we all have earlier works displayed at one point. Our skills develop and mature with time and constant use.

    As for "really bad fan art"… short answer: There isn't any. Everyone has different strengths and skills and creative outlets and there is nothing bad about that. Constructive critiques, feedback and positive encouragement goes a long way to nurturing one's development as an artist.

    I hope that answers your question :)
