It's hard to practice when all you want to do is to hang upside down on a tree.
|About:||slothsdraw is a community for people who want to practice drawing more regularly, and would like the framework and support of a group to help them stick with their resolution. |
Once a week there will be a post with prompts and suggestions for drawing exercises. Members can then pick and choose one or more of those to draw, and post their results (or don't do anything, it's not homework after all). There is no formal commitment to draw anything in reponse to the prompts since this community is not supposed to be stressful, but it is intended as a place for artists not lurkers, so don't join if you don't intend to ever draw anything.
Any member can suggest such prompts and exercises for the weekly posts and thus help out with ideas for practicing.
Membership is moderated, but anyone whose journal doesn't look like a troll's (e.g. newly created, empty journals that aren't obviously secondary or backup journals to another established one, like it would be the case if someone's main journalling account just wasn't on IJ) is welcome to join.
Both original and fan art are welcome. There are no restrictions in this community on posting adult content, but members should indicate whether a drawing is only appropriate for an adult audience. Specific warnings are not required, but optional if an artist wishes to clarify why they consider the content to be mature, for example.
All art posted to the community must be placed behind an LJ cut or just linked. Previews outside LJ cuts are only allowed if they are small, i.e. more or less thumbnail sized. Also, any preview images chosen should be suitable for general audiences ("worksafe").
Members can decide whether they prefer to f-lock their posts, or to make their art public depending on their own comfort level. It's also up to the individual poster whether they want to invite concrit and discussion of their art to learn from each other (obviously how successful asking for concrit will be depends on how active the community turns out to be), or rather let their drawings stand as they are.
