Welcome to the Artist’s corner of the forum! If you're an artist interested in joining the artist's group, this is the place to apply! All artists are encouraged to post their work here when they're ready. To apply, please follow the guidelines below: Please include at least three pieces of art in your post. Your work will be assessed on quality, composition, coloring, highlighting, shading, lining, subject, and if applicable, background. Each work you create will be ran through art theft checkers to ensure your art is authentic and belongs to you. If your art appears anywhere else, even if you are the author, we will deny your application. Please be able to provide ample proof the work belongs to you. You will be able to reapply again in one month if you are denied for this reason. If you are denied for this reason, you will be required to provide screenshots of you drawing a piece of art in phases in your art program. You will also have to provide the final product. After you have included at least three pieces, you provide a link to your portfolio if you have one. This can be on DeviantArt, Tumblr, a Facebook page, or a personal webpage. Keep in mind it must be read only to the public. This means I should be able to view it without having an account to whatever you use. Photobucket is okay, but it must be viewable to me. Providing a password is okay After posting, please make sure your links are working properly as well. If you are planning to sell in the marketplace, please remember that your title is revokable for any reason the VPL staff members find appropriate. This can include, but is not limited to, inability to adhere to contractual agreements (such as scamming others, fraud, and breaching contracts). Both Graphic Designers and Drawing artists are welcome to join. You may also join if you are artsy in other ways, just be sure to show examples of your skill. This includes crafts, clay models, animation, etc. Your art will not be judged on your particular style compared to others, so don't worry! If you plan on selling art as an approved artist, your medium must be practical to pet sites (clay models and plushies can be, but lengthy animated movies wouldn't be considered practical). After posting on the thread, you can now request to join the group. Click here to join the group Please provide the link to your application on this thread in your request message. This will expedite the process! Remember: You need 10 posts in order to apply for this group. PLEASE NOTE: · There are a few questions I may ask you before accepting your app. · Will you be selling your art at VPL? · If yes, what art will you be selling in VPL's marketplace? (Layouts, pets, items, etc.) · How long have you been selling art? · Why do you want this badge? · Are you open to criticism? Please note you do not have to fill this out (I am just giving artists a heads up!) If you find your application is taking too long to be processed, or that you've been skipped, please ping me and I will add you!
