No contents as of yet, but its a start!

I will hopefully get to put up at least something shiney for it in a few days.
What sort of content should the site have?

OMG! What is this? You mean, an actual post, much less an update?
Its true, your eyes do not decieve you ! ^_^
First. I wanted to announce that the most fantastic sangluna
will be the new, other half of the Gemini. ^_^ She exhibits an enormous amount of elegance and talent in her art. Not only that but I feel our art could compliment eachother's nicely in such a project.
Please check out her works at http://sangluna.deviantart.com/gallery/
What about the rest of the artists and projects? Well, I am still think about what to do with this. I definitely want to do something to help artists improve, grow and even create portfolios.
I would however, really like to hear any ideas from the people who are a part of it. What sort of themes would you like to do or see done?
I am tempted to do something along the lines of what a friend is doing and drawing animals based on EDGE. Doing more to make art and support these animals.
So , what do you all think? ^_^
Now I'm just gonna go give the info page a bit of an update!

Hello, sent an email to ultraviolet
to make sure this place isn't dead! Now that I know its not, I'm applying.
Artist name: White Sage, although some call me Fry and some call me Wallaby, pick your preferance.
I'd really like an apprenticeship, practice makes for improvement and I'm ready to get all the practice I can!
The only gallery I have to show is DeviantArt
. Meager pickings, although I'm proud of them. There's older stuff in scraps that I'm not quite so proud of. (There's only three peices so go with the recent two.)
Here's hoping to see more of y'all in the future.

Shoving myself under scrutiny
Artist name : MistyStriker (Note the capitalisation and the lack of spacing. It's purposeful)
Artist Gallery : VCL
(pick one =p)
I'll leave it to you to decide my abilities. I honestly have no idea. Current Mood: awake

Just want people to know the project hasn't died. After all I did say it would be a while before I truely brought this into the public ;D
I'm about to start pimping this place to the public and just going to update you all with some of the info (Which I also posted on my art community).
I want the original idea behind DG to grow and be something more than just two artists working together, but a whole communituy working on many projects and to strive for artistic growth and excellence. It's going to have several levels or aspects to it.
1. Apprenticeship level - This level means the artist is part of the group, but has some work to go before they will be brought into official folio projects. There will monthly challenges set up for Apprentices, aiming to help them better themselves. Apprentice's art will be open to critiques and continually helped and encouraged in anyway, by any one in the community. At some point we may discuss releasing a CD full of apprentices works as means of exposure for these artists with great potential :)
2. Studio Level - This Level is for artists who are accepted as folio quality. Seperate themes or challenges will be given to them to submit for themed folios which we will discuss in the future. Though anyone can submit ideas for folio themes. I would like to make at least one themed, hard copy folio a year. But this may change in time. Of course these will be published and sold and there is money to be had once they have been made.
3. Prime Level - Right now there will only be one other of these accepted. This will be the other artist I work with. An artist willing to devote time to continue the official part of the dark gemini project. I will, in time, choose the artist to work with.
All in all the whole project and community's goal will be to improove artists current skills as well to expose thier talents :D (Oh no, bare naked talents!)
Basically people can apply with samples of their art work. Based on this they become either a Studio level artist or an apprentice artist. Right now, I am thinking there will only be one other space available for a Prime level artist.

Just a note..
I can't seem to get invitations working properly. Apparently I am doing it correctly, but no one seems to receive them.
ANyone have any ideas?
Failing that, You are more than welcome to direct other artists to this community, if you like. spread the words or suggest it to artists you'd like to work with or admire.
And also, is there a way to get it to use the default community icon when I post? Thankyou :)

Critiques and apprentices.
I want this to eventually become a great community. A community driven towards excellence, for the simple love of your art :) I've decided to to a little more with this.
I want artist to be able to come here and learn just as much as they are able to share. So i want this to not only be a a project for artists to do creative works together but also a critique community. A place to grow learn and improve :)
I want to encourage everyone :)I personally, love helping artists, or watching them grow into their full potential. And so, I have been accepting some artists as 'apprentices'.
I and other artists will teach you every way we can to reach your fullest. :) Critiques will be a big part of this, with all the brutal honesty, and equal kind encouragement needed. Full descriptions and redlines will be given by me on every piece submitted for critique. I will actively ask other artists to critique images. I will also use some of the teaching skills I gained from my tutors in college to help you refine your skills :)
I will do all I can for you.
I know I cannot do this alone so I will be asking for assistances from many other artist, should they become a part of the community.
Thankyou everyone who has joined and applied :) Current Mood: contemplative

Artist Name: Tigers Kitten
Preferred Gallery: www.outfoxed.net/~tigers_kitten
although, if I may, I haven't updated it because I've got a couple WIP's that I'm pretty proud of (since my last update I've been trying to improve on my faces, to make them look more like the animal they're supposed to be) so this sketch is a pretty good representation of what I'm drawing at the moment (although it's really REALLY not close to being finished ;)Sketch
Thanks :D Current Mood: hopeful
Just a word
Would like to remind some of the people who joined, still have to apply, if they would like to become a full on studio artist.
All you have to do is make a post with the name you use as an artist, and a link to your preferred gallery.
Please don't be disheartened if you're not accepted. Id like to keep things focused on 3 things, character design, vibrant environments, and overall originality. I want to give everyone a chance, but I also want this to become something of good standard.
However don't let this become something disheartening to artists. Everyone who contributes will have their name and links/info placed in any publications made. I may even take a step out on a limb, and make a publication for those who put so mush love and time into their art but otherwise don't get accepted into high-end galleries or publications. I want everyone to bee seen artistically :) We all work hard and all deserve a bit of the limelight :) Current Mood: busy

I am resurrecting The Dark Gemini Project.
As a means of letting the late artist, Liger live on through a project we started together. I know he would of loved to see project, however small, move forward, just for the simple love of art.
I have yet to decided just how to carry on. However I would like to call upon any artists who may be interested in being a part of the project with me. I'd like to find one artist to join me in the main project, doing what is described on the info page. I would take more than one artist on for the main project, but i feel that would be destroying the original idea me and Liger brought together.
I would like other artists to be a part of side projects, however. Any side projects would be set on harvesting creativity.
I'd like to bring in a variety of talented artists to discuss the various projects or themes we would use. Hopefully bring some organization together.
Eventually I would hope some sort of periodical folio or publication would emerge from this.
The artist who joins me for the main project will also become a mod, and so will a couple of others. Any help I can gain will be widely accepted and appreciated :)
Any interested artists should post a link to their preferred gallery, also including the name or alias they prefer to go by and if they would like to be co-artist on the main project.
Everyone accepted will be placed as a general studio artist until I decide on an artist to work with.
The co-artist and myself will both have to agree on a theme, what gender we'd like to create and what species. Once done we'd agree on a time span to finish the work in.
For studio artists, concepts and themes will have to be arranged after some talking and organization has been done and overall agreed upon.
Feel free to ask all you want, knowing me I left alot out :P or contribute to any ideas :) Current Mood: determined
