- The NEW Academy of Sprite/Pixel Art -
Credit to Phantasm.Angel for this cool idea!
If you want to know where the old thread is for any reason, it's here.

Welcome to the Academy of Sprite/Pixel Art, where you can learn and teach all about sprite/pixel art!

Group sessions will also start running as of December 11th, and they can be found in the non-sticky area of the Sprite Art section. Each thread will be about a different type of spriting, and will likely run for a short span of time before the next thread is created, and a new topic is formed. Teachers and apprentices can find out more about group sessions once I get the thread up. xD

Rules
  • All standard PE2K rules apply.
  • No spamming, flaming or cursing. You know the consequences.
  • Use this thread for discussion, questions and to sign up.
  • You can EITHER be a teacher OR an apprentice. You can't be both. If you're struggling to decide which one, PM a mod to get their opinion.
  • Teachers may have a limit of 5 apprentices at one time.
  • Apprentices may have one teacher only at one time.
  • Please use the forms to sign up.

What is it?
The Academy of Sprite/Pixel Art is a special program run for those who wish to learn about sprite and pixel art, and those who desire to teach others. A great way to improve your pixel skills is through one-on-one tutoring from appropriate members who are able to pass on their knowledge of sprite and pixel art, and through our teacher/apprentice system, this will be possible for anyone who wants to either learn or teach.
Teachers:
These are the people that are going to help the apprentices learn. Remember that 'teacher' is simply a label, and does not give you the authority to control your apprentices in any unnecessary way. This is a place of learning and to work with others. Constant communication is vital. This includes letting an apprentice know if you are going to be absent for a period of time, and letting them know when you would like tasks completed. Make sure you give constant critique and comments; be fair with your critiquing and ensure that you point out the good things as well as what needs improvement. Your job is to teach and inform, and watch them grow in their own way and at their own pace. Do not become a teacher if you are not frequently active. Please use the forms to sign up.

Apprentices:
Apprentices are expected to listen to their teachers in terms of comments and critique, and following their recommendations is definitely a smart thing to do. You are not obliged to obey them if they are rude or anything like that, and they certainly aren't allowed to control you. Don't be afraid to ask your teacher for any kind of help during an "assignment", because they are there to help you. An apprentice only means that you would like to learn more, whether it be five different things, or just one. Remember, teachers are allowed to reject an apprentice for any reason (such as wanting only to teach two, for instance), and this only means you should find another teacher. Please use the forms to sign up.

Think of it as a partnership. :]
Apprentice: Well, what can I learn?
You can request to learn whatever you like in order to improve on those certain qualities you're unsure about, or simply would like to learn more of. You will fill out a form and will be added to the list of members who wish to learn as opposed to teach, and a link to your post will be added so that your teacher will know what you want to learn. The teachers will subsequently fill out a similar form mentioning what they can and will teach.
Apprentice: How can I get a teacher?
Teachers and apprentices can request one another and it's pretty much up to you who you want as your teacher or apprentice. You can either request a teacher/apprentice in this thread or discuss it with them elsewhere; it doesn't matter. Once you have a teacher, it is advised that you double check what you want to learn and you can discuss how the teaching will work.
Teacher: How many apprentices can I have?
It is recommended that you have 3-5 apprentices, and 5 is the limit. Having more that 5 will be too much of a handful and it will be unnecessary anyway if there are many teachers to teach apprentices.

Lessons, Tutorials and Trial Runs:

A recommended "lesson" would be to first discuss what your apprentice(s) wants to learn. Next, providing one or more tutorials for said apprentice(s) (which don't have to be done by you) is a good idea to help your apprentice(s) to understand what the process of developing that kind of sprite is like. Then the teacher may want to set a task or so for their apprentice(s) which the apprentice(s) can then go and complete, and send to their teacher for comments and constructive criticism. From there the teacher is recommended to continue to build up skills with their apprentice(s) before moving onto another subject/type of sprite.

WARNINGS
1.) If a teacher is bullying you in a matter, report to Graceful_Suicune, Anastasia-R or Kumori Gem.

Teachers
1 report = Teacher loses apprentice(s)
2 reports = Teacher loses (new) apprentice(s) and can not ask for a new one for a week.
3 reports = You are no longer a teacher, and can not sign up to be one any longer.

Apprentice
1 report = Apprentice loses teacher.
2 reports = Apprentice loses (new) teacher and can not ask for a new one for a week.
3 reports = You're no longer an apprentice, and can not sign up to be one anymore.

What will get you immediately kicked out
1) Stealing work, from each or just in general, is bad. x..x Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
2) Not helping at all with each other or getting along at all.


You can sign up and discuss in this thread, but keep the chat to the point – we don’t want needless chatter.

Golden rule: Remember to communicate and have fun!

Name:
White Wolf of the Snow/Vanessa

Teacher or apprentice:
Apprentice

What you want to learn/what you can teach:
Anything I can. I want to improve and learn how to do fusions and overshadows, too, since they're cool. Never tried fusions, but might as well learn them. I know how to recolor and such, with color towers.

How long you've been spriting:
Not very long, used to recolor and add armor to sprites in my free time.

How you can be contacted:
PE2K, PokeFarm (under the username Starsight). Most common things.

How often you are available:
Anytime, almost. Sometimes I'm gone for most of the day, for about two or three days a week, but other than that, I'm great at anytime!
