Title: Dragon Drawing Club
Description: not your everyday artists

"Not your everyday artists."
Welcome to the DDC! This is a club for all of you out there that doodle dragons in the margins of your notes, or for anyone out there that would like to. This is our haven for resident artists, and a place for aspiring artists to turn for tips, tricks, and handy sleights of hand.
Libertas has attracted a some good artists, and cultivated a few over the years. The purpose of the DDC is to nurture this artistic inclination in our members, to help everyone improve in their art and to provide a place for people to show off their art to appreciative audiences. Joining does not require that you be interested in helping other artists improve, nor that you be at all skilled at drawing previous to joining. It requires only an interest in the artistic interpretation of our written world.
From time to time we also plan to host little events, such as dragon swaps or little contests, things to keep you interested, as well as simply providing a little company of people to go to for dragon artsy stuff around Libertas.
Every month the DDC will host a new challenge for those of us that are artistically inclined, in keeping with our mission to help our Libertasian Artists keep improving. This month we're asking for baby pictures. Awwww. For additional information and to participate, go here:

PREFERRED NAME COLOR: 009966
MEMBER TYPE: Club member
PREFERRED SUBJECT MATTER: Dragons, whers, and when inspiration hits, I dabble in mishappen
men humans. Occasionally canine/feline furryness
PREFERRED ART MEDIA: Traditional pencil or pen. Any technological attempts happen in Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0
RANDOM STUFF: You all have seen a few tidbits of my art around the board and very interspersed intervals. I really only find myself drawng when particular inspiration strikes. Anyway, I'm not the best and I'd love to get better (and hammer out my idea of whers) particularly with the computerized side. I suck at lines and coloring and such.

PREFERRED SUBJECT MATTER: Dragons are <33333 But I also love drawing whers and firelizards. Can't draw humans to save my life though, but I'm working on it. I'm also not too bad at horses and dogs, but those are not nearly as refined as my dragons are.
PREFERRED ART MEDIA: Traditional is what I'm best at for doing different poses and getting colors exactly right. I'm becoming a better pixeler, mostly using Khiitan's "build-a-dragon" base set, as I like to call it.
RANDOM STUFF: I need to actually post some of the stuff I've done...<.< But yeah. I've done a lot, and my most recent pixel work is by far my best. I need to scan some of my traditional work, but that will come in time.

Hey guys. You may have seen this (or not), but we have an event up! A monthly challenge, which will hopefully turn into a monthly thing. Hence monthly. This month's is easy, just a standard "draw a dragon" thing. Wanted to mention it since this post will effectively cover it up on the main index. Find it here. And participate!
Yesyes! The main reason for this new post here. Thia suggested a design for our banners 'round here, and I ran with it! And since we've got all those fancy colored name things, I figured I'd put them to good use! Personalized for each member:
And you will find mine in my signature (once I put it there in a few moments), and all new members will receive one as well! Yay!
As an added aside, you guys can just chat in this thread if you want. Hopefully over drawing-related topics, but still. It is a club, not an academy. Just have a grand old time.
