Title: No October Art Comp?
Post by: Paul Moore on 10 October, 2017, 07:44:45 pm
Will there be an October Art competition? not too sure if id be able to take part, but ive not seen it listed, maybe im just impatient...

this is a quote from CFM

Now... the art competition is not dead but it IS changing significantly after this. I've heaved it and wrestled it in its current form for six glorious years. It's been utterly extraordinary and I have to thank you all for your boundless creativity and enthusiasm which has made doing what must seem like a relatively onerous extracurricular task such a constant delight to carry out. I do of course intend to be heavily involved it what comes next...

STAY TUNED!

Whilst you're not drawing, why not vote in the current Short Story Comp!

There's some brilliant stuff, and nothing more than 500 words!

We could have a vote on this thread - no 2nd or 3rd (or prizes), just pick a favorite.

It'd pass the time, if nothing else...  :|

Title: Re: No October Art Comp?
Post by: IAMTHESYSTEM on 18 November, 2017, 09:55:06 am
Could there be licensing issues? We doodle away producing our Competition stuff, but Rebellion might be in the middle of some complicated negotiation with a third party interested in acquiring a 2000AD character license for a limited period. Understandably it might be best for those talks if the prospective party concentrates on official artwork produced by professional 2000AD artists and they're not distracted by any 'iffy' visions of 2000AD characters, something that might detract from its commercial saleability. Also, it does take a lot of time to produce the Comp, and there is expenditure for winners, a Graphic Novel, so you can see why the Art Comp might be in for a long hiatus.
Title: Re: No October Art Comp?
Post by: Andy Lambert on 18 November, 2017, 11:51:48 am
I would be surprised if it's down to any licensing issues... surely we'd be told not to continue at all if that were the case, but instead the contributions to this thread alone were highlighted on the facebook page.

I believe it's down to the reduced interest in the competitions themselves. There has sadly been fewer submissions than there used to be, possibly because of other things getting in people's way preventing them from setting time aside to contribute anything. Look at the calendar sign-up - it's usually filled pretty quickly, with names overlapping on some days, but here we are on the 18th November with slots still to be taken.
I'm sure I've heard somewhere that for the competitions to continue, there had to be more interest in it. If it does start up again, in whatever format, there needs to be more contributions from us.
Title: Re: No October Art Comp?
Post by: Dash Decent on 18 November, 2017, 02:29:38 pm
I was going to post a theme but with under two weeks to December I think all the creative people are probably focusing on getting their Advent entries done.

Post by: Albion on 18 November, 2017, 07:28:49 pm
I believe it's down to the reduced interest in the competitions themselves.

I’m thinking it’s that too and I think that is because the forum has a lot less posts than it used to and it’s slowly dying for various reasons. This forum used to be a fun, friendly place but over the last few years not so much. Reduced interest in the forum itself is the real reason in my opinion.
I visit a lot less than I used to and mostly just for the art competition.
Title: Re: No October Art Comp?
Post by: Tjm86 on 18 November, 2017, 07:36:26 pm
It is a lot quieter to be sure but I would still say it is one of the more friendly places around.  Folks in these parts are far more accepting of alternative views and mistakes, more willing to engage with different perspectives critically and generally quite restrained in their language.  That said, there seem to be one or two red button topics that require mod intervention but they seem to be quite rare.

Yeah the Forum does seem to be grinding to a halt. I guess due to format and more open alternatives. Its a crying shame and I hope it hangs in there as I still find it an delight. All be it a less active one.

Funnily enough I saw a topic ripping into the forum over on Facebook the other day. It was quick to accuse it of being full of bullying, a lone voice (not sure who as they had their real name - sorry if you read this) stood up to defend the forum and as you can predict on Facebook the knives where out quick enough. It was all a bit unpleasent. Credit to the currently banned Frank who stepped up to defend the 'victim'. Especially since it was his banning that started the Facebook conversation.

A lot of people who claim not to care about the Forum fair care enough to rant about it! The way people go on on Facebook it quickly becomes clear that the moderation here is very helpful in keeping things more pleasent here regardless of the odd misstep.

Yeah, that's continually vexing.

I will say there are grand plans but they're still under negotiation. Unfortunately yeah - it does involve peeling it away from the forums somewhat. Something I was initially reluctant to do when the concept was first mooted a few years ago - but it just doesn't seem to get the same level of enthusiastic footfall that it used to :( It's nowt to do with licensing!

I'll always defend this place - it's a supportive and creative community and outside in the vast social media wilderlands you do miss that human level of moderation. The sheer amount of unchecked bullying and nastiness that goes on under the average FB post or over on Twitter can be stunning :'(

So yes - again I say THE COMP WILL RETURN, I did plan to take it down for a bit not just October and refresh it at a SPECIFIC TIME which has not yet occurred. It'll be bigger, longer and cover more platforms but a prong of it will always rest in these gentle lands!

CFM - Speaking as someone who rarely picks up a pencil these days, let alone enter an art comp, I hope you appreciate the high esteem I hold you in for helming the competitions for so long. I know I'm not the only one.
Wish I could have taken the time to enter more often.

You take whatever time is needed to revamp the comp, I aint complainin'!
And apologies to anyone if my 'entry' in the current thread gave the wrong vibe.
Title: Re: No October Art Comp?
Post by: Andy Lambert on 19 November, 2017, 07:49:25 pm
It seems very strange - compared to Facebook, this forum is positively zen-like! Sure, I've witnessed a few tiffs on here, but they really are nothing compared to the vitriol you see on a daily basis elsewhere. Makes me wonder why people aren't spending more time in more tolerable company here than in antagonistic corners of the internet...

It was the art competition that brought me to the forum in the first place, and it's still the main reason why I keep coming here. If it wasn't for the competition, I probably would be experiencing a creative block, not drawing or painting a thing. I probably wouldn't be on the art course I'm on now, and being told I've made an exceptionally strong start. I probably wouldn't have had my very first comic strip printed recently, and I probably wouldn't have gotten to know such wonderful, creative people with a shared love for 2000AD.

I'm sorry if I've come across a bit pushy about the lack of a contest or any information about it - I guess it goes to show how much it means to me and others. I should also have considered that things still need to be worked out and organised - I guess being told that the competition WOULD return in some format gave me the impression that things were already in place.
It seems odd but even though I'm drawing again, without the contest or the advent calendar, I feel a bit lost for inspiration to tackle anything else.
As long as an outlet exists to create some fan art, in whatever format, I want to be there contributing to it..! :)

I've moderated/administrated a number of forums of varying sizes since the early 2000s. There has been precisely one that’s less hassle than this place – and that's a forum on a website about a relatively obscure indie band.

Yes, now and again we send people to the naughty step, but that happens very rarely, and only happens after debate among the admins and a warning to the person in question. Outright bans are vanishingly rare.

CFM and the Art Comp rock.
When it returns I'll get my finger/crayons out and get more involved. 'Life' has been the problem in recent months.

FB and the rest really do grind my gears. I stumble on it occasionally and on some level always regret it. It's baffling.

I've seen attacks on this forum on socialist media that just seem motivated by misplaced entitlement from someone enraged that their opinions aren't mirrored by the people who regularly come here, and so resort to running off to FB or Twitter to tell tales.  Gets them through the day, I suppose.

Forums and Facebook for fill very different functions. I've gotten into heated exchanges on here and vented about it on Facebook, normally as a concurrent event. The forum is an open platform, Facebook is more of a support group. Sometimes Venting on your home ground (like Facebook) can be a valuable way of calming down between rage posts on an open platform.

I Like this forum, I really like the creative community and the art competition. If the forum itself starts to wind down I'll be very sad to see one of my defined compartments for social interaction disappear. 
Title: Re: No October Art Comp?
Post by: Tjm86 on 20 November, 2017, 03:15:33 pm
Interesting.  I would have said it was the other way round myself but then I see Facebook as a tool of the Antichrist and the source of all that is evil in the world so don't go anywhere near it.   ;)

Admittedly this is a slightly exaggerated version of my views but on a more serious note, over the years Facebook, Snapchat and similar platforms have been the source of significant and somewhat stressful workloads over the years.  Often incendiary, inflammatory or downright abusive posts have spilled over into the real world and overly complicated already difficult situations.  Granted this is a personal perspective but the idea of Facebook being somewhere to 'calm down' strikes me as highly ironic under these circumstances.

I would agree that it would be a shame if this place was to fall by the wayside, mind.  As you say, there are times when exchanges become quite heated although they tend to be the exception rather than the rule.  Sometimes I think that the 'welcome thread' needs a signpost that a rather robust sense of humour is needed, that forum members are not mind readers and that quite often offence is accidental rather than intentional.  (Oh and that Jim is just a grump sod but don't mind him, he's like that with everyone.  He's a bit like that gruff Yorkshireman in the corner of your local that has mastered the art of the withering glare and sarcastic putdown.  So long as you don't poke him you'll be fine.)

I only started joining in with the Art comp because I felt like this would be a nice place to do so. Facebook can get a bit nasty and emotional sometimes, in general I find the people on this forum to be really nice :) I wouldn't feel as comfortable sharing my art to a wider audience on Facebook, I'm not the most confident artist but I've always felt comfortable with this forum.
The competition has inspired me to actively pursue some more serious art learning and push myself out of my comfort zone. The standard of entries is very high and it always pushes me to try harder. Even if I don't participate I'm definitely lurking, in a kind of good benevolent way.

Sometimes people have different opinions, accept it and move on. Not everyone will agree all the time. Sometimes people just get things wrong and make mistakes (I do this all the time!) There's nothing wrong with admitting to a mistake, even better if you learn something and come away a better person for it.
We're also very fortunate to have some professionals on this forum :)

Facebook can be horrific when you stray from your own circle of friends (sometimes even when you stray from your own page.) But on your page you are the boss. I intentionally turned Facebook into safe ground ages ago, after one to many confrontation. it's only social media if you make it that way and it's only anti social media if you let it be.

I haven't had many arguments on here and none of them have ended in feuds or threats or even long term falling outs. In general this forum is a nice place full of mostly people of a similar age to me who like 2000ad. That's some decent common ground.

Yeah the Forum does seem to be grinding to a halt.

Do you really think so Colin?

I wouldn't post every day, but do check in quite regularly.
Apart from the temporary absence of some regulars it seems to be business as usual from where I'm sitting.
Doesn't it always have approx 200 people online every day?

I genuinely love this forum- have never bothered with any other form of social media, and based on all sane evidence never will.

Regarding the topic in hand- I do enjoy the art comp too, it's had some brilliant contributions over the years.
I'll definitely make sure I comment / vote more regularly on the art comp from now on.

I just popped on to see if there was any news on the comp and found it rather sad that there is a feeling of a lack of interesting for both comp and forum in general.

I've been away for a long while and have missed participating in the comp.  It's something I hope to participate in again in the future.  Really look forward to seeing how the new look comp turns out.

Also, on the subject of social media platforms, this forum ranks as one of the most pleasant I've experienced in my 20 years of internetting.  Sure I've had arguments in the past here, but I'd say they were civil disagreements.  Never seen any bullying, but I have been away for a long while.

Thanks, Andy.  I think the hardest thing about digital art is finding what works for you.  There are so many programs and approaches.  I used the books 'Digital Character Design and Painting The Photoshop CS Edition' by Don Seegmiller and 'Digital Art Masters Volume 1' by various to get to grips with digital painting.  In this day and age, however, I reckon there's loads of great free stuff out there. :)

Is the art comp still a thing? Or did it die?  :'(
