Good you asepted to join us, you'll not regret it.
Well, just passing to give you the welcome and to invitate you to join the Contest we're currently having. I'll explain you how this contest works:
Ecah month we have a theme, theme picked by the winner of the previous month. The idea is to make a drawing, (either traditional, digital, black and white or color) which is based on the theme. 1 Drawing per artists. This month's theme is Mecha or cybernetic
You have the "October 2009 - Artist of the month - General Discussion and Submission Thread" in which you can post your entry (note: the group doesn't suport the img code, you'll have to poast the direct link) with the tag Final Entry, you can also use this place to post WIP, ask for opinions or give critique to the others submissions. Around the 21th of this month we close the submission phase and move to the "Voting phase 1" here you can choose 3 from your favourites submissions (exept yours of course) and rate them basing on Concept, Creativity and execution. The 3 entries with the higest number of votes will move to the voting phase 2 which will be a poll open for all the members of Animesuki. The winner of the poll will win the month's contest and will have the honor to choose the theme for nex months contest.
Of course, being a member of the group doesn't force you to participate, you may just coment, vote, post or just lurk around.
In thses group artist join to share arts as well as coment and critiques, share tecniques and tips for the traditional or digital art, we participate in collective projects and we also have a drawing contest every month.
