[Group] Tainted Design - The Organized Art Request Thread Has Returned! (locked)

232 posts

Flag Post


Hello, and welcome to Tainted Design,
We are still currently constructing ourselves, but feel free to post, and request.

The aim of this thread is to create an organized and constructive environment, for all types of art; so please read the rules before posting.

The new thread has many new features, so be sure to check them out, as I’m sure you will both find them interesting, and in the future, benefit from them.

The way this thread works is by having multiple, specially chosen leaders – who have access to this account – who will update the requests section with completed artwork; although the password will not be handed out lightly, and yes; I have got permission for this.

Please note, I am magikman, and so I am not copying the previous thread.

I would also like to say that I decided to use text rather than photos so that the page loads quicker; making the thread easier to use.

I am also the founder of Tainted Design, and I hope that once more it can become an interesting and thriving community.

Ranking System:


Having taken on board the criticism of the previous ranking system (That it was more based on quantity than quality), I have devised this system:
Every time a piece of artwork is completed, it will be rated out of 10, to one decimal place, e.g 6.7/10. The average of all the ratings given to the 10 most recent pieces of artwork will then be this player's rank inside the thread. The work will be ranked by the controllers of the thread, and other members' ratings will also be taken into account.

Alongside this, the form of artwork will be taken into account, as it may not be as hard as making other artwork. Avatars will receive a max rating of 5/10; and pokefusion max 6/10. This is because these forms of artwork generally take less time and/or effort to complete. However, there may be exceptions for excellent pieces. Other forms of artwork such as pixel art; signatures; banners; and art itself, will also have their ratings adjusted for size and required effort, although all these forms of artwork can achieve 10/10. Alongside this, I am now trying to bring in a system where members indicate if they want artwork to be: A) CCed and Rated, with that rating being added to their rank. B) Rated and CCed, but not added to their rank. C) No preference. However, once the artwork is posted, the choice may not be made to get the rating added to the rank, as this may lead to abuse of the system. Also, please be brave and get the rating added, atleast if you think the artwork is good, as it will mean that you will build up a more solid ranking.

There are also achievements which you can gain, however, we haven't got any art, so check out the contests section where there is a chance to make your own achievements and do the art for them.

Collabs:


If you want to do a collab, simply say so, and we will put you on the list below, and then someone can choose to pair with you; so that a collab can be done.
Laxaria:

I would be interested in doing a collab sig. Anyone of you can start. I prefer the dimensions of 360*120 and in GIMP’s xcf format. I may not chose to complete my half if the quality is sub-par though. Create something good, interesting and well composed, and I’ll work on finishing it.

Being attempted by: Sesame – http://www.mediafire.com/?kg0zkqzdnk3
