I'd vouch for that.

I'm always torn over proposals such as this (although I, of course, have no say in whether or not something would be implemented). On the one hand money greases the gears of industry, whether that industry is indie Flash collabs or cars, money makes stuff happen it's a great motivator, on the other hand I feel like money can (and often does) bring out the worst in people and kind of despoil things that were once pure and done out of the love of the art.

Anyway if anyone of you is interested I made a news post about a possible Evolution Project collab, I'd love to get some input from you guys about what works and what doesn't.

Not to toot my own horn, but I think having a go at a just for fun art thread before launching into a collab works out pretty well, almost like a trial run (although I didn't plan on making a collab at first).

@J-qb: yeah, quality control and time would be issues. I'll have to find a way to keep people interested over a long(ish) period and keep pretty strict control over what will be allowed in.

Im totally with you there, although I have to admit that im guilty of it myself too. As you said, money can provide that little extra push to partake in a project that you would normally plan to do but eventually wouldnt. I dont think its really that bad that it brings out the worst in poeple (in respect to flash collabs that is) but it would be better if it could go without.

Provided my two cents, hope they help.

On the other hand you have to be careful that poeple are still motivated for the collab after doing something for the fun-thread. I guess it kinda depends on the nature of the collab.

Yeah, I think just about everyone would be guilty of it. Times are tough nowadays economically. I'm selling art and craft items on the side just to be able to get necessities. I used to just draw/paint/craft just because it was fun. The way I look at it though is the money pays for the supplies used to make the artwork(even if it's just a tablet for the computer).

I've been hanging out on ED lately, and read many articles about deviantART. They do the most ridiculous things.

Are you guys messy artists? <.< I tend to be. I use stuff like oil pastels and charcoal a lot and that ruined my rug. I had to get a rug doctor in last week because of all the smudges on the carpet. And then with paint I always manage to get drips and drops on the carpet and the wall. My land lady hates me. lol

Yeah, I'm a messy person in general but when doing art, irl, I'm something of an atomic bomb. I get paint all over. =P

IT's fun to get Down and dirty with your work but I spend so much time on it that it's almost like Performing Brain Surgery when I don't have to much inspiration.

@Zombie - Seriously man? Goddamit man, I thought we discussed this and resolved this issue.

@Fifty - Lol ED. ED is whack, and of course the article on DA will be hilarious, because DA in general is a ridiculous place.

@Abby - Not usually. The messiest I've gotten is when I've done spraypainting. I try to keep myself clean cause paint does not come off.

Deviant art is good for artists who are professionals and have career. I personally like newgrounds alot better for improving in art and communicating with other artists. but DA is better for resume's and for showing of your art if your good enough. here you can be novice and get feedback, there you have to be somewhat good or amazing to get alot of feedback or attention. but it is also plagued with anime....very very shitty anime....
