Live Art Reviews Sep. 15th, 2013 @ 11:45 AM Reply

I've always thought it would be fun to do live reviews/critiques... as a group. So I figured I'd toss the idea out there and see where it lands. If it fails, it fails... but hopefully it'll turn into something fun and get people more involved in the community.

I'm totally open to ideas and suggestions (on any aspect of it), but basically the idea is... get whoever is around and willing... to meet up in tinychat (or where ever) and go through the art portal (or unscouted section). Discuss, rate, and leave HELPFUL comments along the way... with the goal of getting the actual artists to join the chat so we can have some back and forth with them. Give tips/suggestions and help each other grow and improve.

Livestream, G+, Skype and Twitch have all been suggested. Not sure which would be the best route. So if anyone wants to join in, help out or just offer suggestions on things, please do so here or drop by the current tinychat room.

Anyone and everyone is welcome! :D

We're still looking through art. Scouted and unscouted. If you want to join us, or have something you've done (or are working on) that you'd like comments on, stop on by. Not sure how much longer I'll be around, but someone is usually there.

We had a decent turn out last time... several old regs dropped in! Was fun!! We ended up with a skype call broadcast via livestream ...and we're thinking of trying it again tomorrow. Not sure what time yet. That'll depend on who volunteers to join in.

So this is a heads up and a call out to anyone that might want to tune in/participate. The hope is to get enough people involved that this can go on every week without being dependent on the same few people. So the more the merrier!

If you're interested in joining as a 'critiquer,' let us know so we can get you added on skype beforehand.

If you'd like to be a 'critiquee,'(scouted or unscouted, everyone is welcome!!) ...just post a link to ONE piece. Depending on how things go, we may be able to look through more of your stuff (that's sort of what happened the first time).

You don't have to be on cam or mic to participate. There's text chat or you can just watch/listen!

If anyone has any questions, comments, suggestions ...or anything else to add, post 'em here or pm me if that's more comfortable for ya.

The goal is to get people to interact and HELP each other improve in a positive way ...and strengthen the community in the process!! Plus it's a good way to get some views (thanks, Pat! lol)

Hope to see you all tomorrow!! :D

if no one shows, we'll just skip it :'(

I want to participate, however tomorrow I've already got plans so I may not be available till later in the evening ( 8 or 9 ). Aside from that, I should be fine every other Sunday after that.

Could you review my picture "Museum of Fine Art"? I want to make pictures that are like the FarSIde and ToonHole, but I believe the picture is lacking in certain details. Could you give me some tips?

Sure. I don't know if the stream will be recorded, but hopefully we can leave reviews/comments too.

A few of us are in tinychat right now, so if anyone wants to drop in, please do! And again... you don't have to go on cam or mic. You can just text chat or... observe. And you don't need to sign up or have an account for tinychat. Just click 'Guest' pick a name (preferably your ng username), close the pop-up if you get one, and you're good to go.

Thanks for reviewing my piece, you guys made some really great points about the lighting and the brush-strokes.

Once again I must announce that I won't be available Sunday ( although didn't we say we were moving it to anther day? ), for realsies this time.
It's work, not paintball, so there'll be no "oh I'm out of ammo and it's lunchtime, if I go back home instead of buying more ammo I can do the show"

Oh no! :( That's a bummer seeing how Tom was nice enough to give it a shout out in his last news post. Art101 has gotten a few pm's already. Would suck if there wasn't a stream tomorrow.

Would anyone else be up for hosting/manning the steam?
