Default TMI: Art Department

Welcome everyone to PE2K's Department of Art! I am the Department Caption, Nefarious, and before I go into anything else, I'll state which people are already assigned to this department.

Department Captain
Nefarious

Department of Art
- RocketMeowth
- Megumi
- Surly Professor
- Kayden Javlaíakín
- Cris
- Sky Girl
- FShadow
- dannieman

Intro

The Ministry of Innovation, TMI, was created in order to bring activity, organization, and leadership to PE2K. There are four different sections of TMI and we are the Art Section, or Department. The Art Department's goal is to bring as much activity and organization to the Art Boards as possible. With the many people already on the Art Department, I'm sure we can get the Art Boards to thrive with activity.

If you would like to join the Art Department, just post here and I'll put you on the list.

Ok now to start things off, i'll list all current Art events that are alrady in progress to make the Art Boards more active.

Current Art Events

The Monthly Smeargle's Art Challenge.

This is an art Contest that takes place monthly, hosted by HKim, in which all artists can make a piece of art, following the theme, and send it in. Voting follows soon after. You can find this contest, and more info on it, in the Mixed: Fan Art / Original Art Board.

The PE2K Banner of the Week Competition.

This is another art contest only this one takes place weekly. This contest, hosted by myself, only involves making banners. You follow the dimensions, theme, and other guidlines to create the best banner you can make. This is also followed by voting. You can find this contest in the Mixed: Graphics Art Board.

The Forum Template Project.

I myself started this project to bring a lot more activity to the whole forum. Everyone likes cool skins in which they can choose from. This project will give a wide variety of skins to choose from. You can find this thread in the Mixed: Graphics Art Board. I am currently in the process of making the first skin. If anyone here knows vBulletin coding, I'd be very appreciative of any knowledge of it for the skins.

The above are the current art events that make the Art Boards more than just boards to post in. In the future, I hope we can have many more people running these events so that the Art Boards can flourish with activity.

Ok so we got all that down, now we can plan for the future. If anyone has any suggestions at all on how to make the Art Boards better, just post here. All ideas will be considered and you may even be able to lead a certain event for Art.

If I feel that a certain person in this Department is doing very well and has proven themselves, then I will promote them to a higher rank which would give them more power and say into this Department. But for now, everything goes through me and I'm sure you all have some great ideas already. So get out those Paint Brushes and lets make the Art Boards the best they can be!

Since nobody here seems to want to get thigns startedm I guess I will.

First of all, we need to do soemthing about the boards. Another thread, started by Surely Professor, has many posts with suggestions on how to combine the Art boards.

The way I would do it is this:

Parent Board: Art
Sub-Graphics Art
Sub-Fan Art/ Original Art
Sub-PE2K Art Events

I also think we should add a Pixel Art board for sprites and, well, pixel art. Trainer Cards, Sprites, pixel art, pretty much everything that isn't drawn or that doesn't belong in the graphics board.

And maybe someone can open a spriting contest also. I know nothing about sprites so I wouldn't be the right person. I think there was a contest like that in the past, not sure what happened to it.

Anyway so those are my current ideas. Any suggestions to improve them? Or any new ideas?

Well if anything, I'd want a spriter to run it. I think Shane or Surly Professor would be qualified enough. If you'd like to run the contest, just post your ideas on it. If you don't know squat about how you're going to run it, then I wouldn't volunteer. =P

I would make it simular to what Lan did because that seemed to work the best. Just the fact that the judges wern't always around. There would be several rounds with something different each round. It will be judged on - Crativity, - Originality, and - Coloring. There will be two judges and me with the final say.

If I may add my opinion, this system does seem to work well. But in the last contest (hosted by Lan) the judges kind of,...bailed. And the contest lasted forever. I would suggest making as few a rounds as possible, to ensure that it doesn't last too long. And get reliable judges, who understand the grading system. Last time, some of them graded one way, and others graded a different way, then they had to go back and re-grade, and......well you get my point.

Just my opinion.

I'ld just make it a single round contest. Bada bing bada boom.
It's not long enough for people to be able to bail on.
And if it's a single challenge you'll know if you are really interested in the contest instead of having multiple suprise challenges that you might not have the slightest interest in.
Also you'ld be able to have more contests with more winners, instead of just having one big slog of a contest that never seems to end.

I'll judge, or make a contest, or whatever you guys need. I got a couple contest ideas, but there seem to be people that are more eager. I'll just let them make their contest first to get it out of their system. I'm not goin' anywhere.
