|Calling all Fantasy Artists
||[Feb. 8th, 2006|03:44 pm]
Hello everyone. My name is Peter, and I am a fledgling fantasy artist. |
Creating art is essentially a solitary activity, which makes it quite tough at times. Having taken some formal art classes before, I've found that it is a lot more fun when you are being encouraged and motivated by peers. A while ago, I looked around the web for a nurturing environment, but couldn't find any place that really suited my needs. Therefore, I decided to create one.
I would like to introduce Fantasity.com - (http://www.fantasity.com)
Fantasity is a site dedicated to Collaborative World Creation. It is a place for writers and artists to come together and craft a rich and elaborate fantasy world, populated with colorful characters and places. Starting with almost nothing - a city name, a vague history and description - the goal is nothing less than the collaborative creation of an entire world.
The site encourages collaboration and sharing, for the benefit of all. Fantasity is a place where creative people can hone their skills in a supportive environment. The goal is personal skill advancement in a nurturing community of people who share the same interests.
How can you contribute?
Artists - you can submit your original artwork to lend vision to the people, places, and stories of Sea Bluff.
Writers - you can submit stories set in Sea Bluff. You can add your own original characters and/or borrow characters created by others. You can create your own settings, and/or borrow places created by others. With each new story, shared characters and places become richer and more robust.
The site has already received a number of submissions, and I am pleased with the way things are going. Right now, we're having an art contest, and the winner will have their art prominently displayed on the home page.
I invite you to check out the site, and I hope that you like what you see enough to join and contribute. See you around Sea Bluff!
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
