TAC Exchanges - what do YOU want to see?
So I've been wracking my brains trying to come up with another exchange to do after we do the Mafia (what's that, - /shameful plug off).
Lately we've been changing the dynamics of our exchanges so they'll be a little more unique than SMMO which is where a lot of us came from. I've been incorporating RP'ing along with our art - usually providing a premise for people to base their characters off of instead of a particular say... seasonal theme.
So I'd really like to here what everyone likes seeing, wants to see, thinks is cool about our exchanges. Whatever you what to see more of or what you enjoyed doing in the past. Please feel free to post your thoughts, comments, suggestions... Also there's a poll cuz it's neat. =D
I also love Temprah's Idea about doing a themed thing every month (or even every other month).
I also gotta say that I really like this community! SMO is fun & all, but it's got so many people, & it's so huge. I really like the smaller/more close knit part of TAC
sci-fi babes for the DA group scifichicks cuase i think most peeps here are at DA too
warcraft themed (i dont play everquest but i here its similar so i guess that with this one lol
oh and inner-child basically making a piece od the persons inner child or what we think it could be like?
All I ask for is plenty of time to do the exchange. If life is truly hectic then I know I will only be able to scrounge an hour or so each night or maybe even only a few nights a week to do some artwork. Doing vector takes me while...even drawing or painting will take me some time.
All in all though I think the exchanges here have been quite unique and fun to do.
That said, I like 6 weeks for a time frame. I like having to write a small backstory for my character. I have no issues adapting my gaming characters to fit, or making up new ones. I love exchange themes with a twist. Reincarnation, other worldly, other eras, even regular 'if my mmorg was alive today in 2007 she would look like this...' would be fun. More than anything I like the excitement of turn in day, and seeing how everyone did their 'take' on someone else's character.
#1) I came to TAC via SA, a RP board, not an art board, like the majority of you all did.
#2) while I do like to draw, paint, etc., I don't consider myself to be anywhere near as talented as the rest of you guys who participate. Consequently, it takes a lot for me to drum up the inspiration, and enthusiasm to do artistic things for other people. I hate the thought that what I submit will be ordinary, and boring.
#3) time. Unless I'm struck with some incredibly inspiring idea, it takes me half the length of time to just come up with an idea, and then nearly the other half of the time to figure out how to put the idea into something artistic.
So there are my thoughts, and I will try to participate more, but I really have no suggestions on what to do differently. So far the time allotted has always seemed sufficient to me...
I did enjoy creating a story & background for my character, but would not want it to go too much further than that and 6 weeks for a time frame seems like a good length too.
If you were a fairy what type would you be? Nymph? Dryad? Elemental? Would you have a favorite flower? What shade of pink would you be?
see all kinds of possibilities!
( Just teasing, *hugs Roz* )
Maybe I get brave enough for the next exchange hehe
I have done one exchange, the last one here, but aim to try more. And all that 3D stuff? til I saw SMMO I thought they were done in photoshop by some crazy people who have time to make such detailed drawings lol. Had never realised there was actually programs for it. So that is my next goal, to learn 3D stuff. Until then I freehand.
I like to RP too, and I LOVE fantasy. I like to watch SciFi but I've never roleplayed it, and hadn't really considered it. I guess its a new challenge
And I like Lessa's fairy idea, fairies rock
What about a rp exchange based on the zombie plan thing? Or the Heaven thing maybe.. de
We're definitely planning some sort of fairy exchange later. I'm not so against them, just the cheesy, sugary ones. =x
ya mean like this one?
