Welcome to Tainted Design, a new design thread for all types of art,
But with a difference

My thoughts before creating this thread were:

I want to create a thread, for artwork and requests, although theres already loads of them, so should i? The only problem with the other threads is that there seems to be a lack of organization.

So i started the thread, my number 1 priority being organization, and the first part of this is the 6 point policy.

Let me explain:

Firstly, there will be a commision section on the first page, and this is where our members will be able to see which commisions are avaliable at the present time.

Secondly, the group would like work from members to come fairly frequently. If a member does not produce any work for a prolonged period of time, then i am afraid they will be taken off the members list. This means that you know who to request from.

Thirdly, for those wishing to commision some work for the group, there will be a spotlight of the best work produced by Tainted Design. To help you see what we can produce.

Fourthly, If the commision form below is not filled out correctly, then it will not be posted on this first page. This means we dont get half requests.

Fithly, you will be able to find finished commisions on the first page, as long as they were finished less than a week ago.

And finally, the Rules are definite. End of.

The whole point of this is that anyone who wants anything done can have it done, just after posting their request form, and then by having it ready for them on the first page, they dont need to trawl through loads of pages.
For the members i am making it so they can see art that needs doing easily, and also get complete requests, so they dont have to chase up information.
The reason i have the member policy, is simply because members who collect dust arent any good. Members collecting dust and not fullfilling requests when asked to causes problems for the person looking for a produced piece of work.

Oh, and just another thing, members will recieve rank points from each commision completed, or artwork posted, please see the form below for more info…

We are currently accepting members and requests of all forms.

Alongside that, we are currently a member of the IKATA.

IKATA (Internation Kongregate Art Team Association) Recruitment List:
Please read this thread.
Here is the IKATA squad of 5, if you do not wish to be in the squad i will replace you, however if you do not reply you will be expected to produce artwork for any art battles. I have entered the squad into IKATA

Arroza(11) – Speciality: Sigs, Vector and Animations

Please note that you will recieve 5 base points for each art competition you submitted work in, or helped work with in. You will then recieve 5 bonus rank points for each won battle as a team and more 10 bonus points if you submitted the winning piece.

Hm… are you from England? Most people in America spell realized with a z and organized with a z. I’d recommend fixing that to appeal to more members. There’s not anything wrong with it, I was born in England, but it looks funky to some people in America, which is 2/3 of Kongregate.
