I've been wanting to join a Fan-Artists community for quite some time, but haven't come across what I'm seeking. What I want is a place where fan-artists (of traditional media) can challenge and motivate each other, a place for collaborating and posting, for getting feedback and advice.

On LJ, I loved being part of [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot, a community for traditional artists in the Merlin fandom. I especially always enjoyed their collaborative projects, eg. Tarot cards, Zodiac signs, Celtic animals.

I was wondering if there's anything like that out there on DW, fandom-specific or multi-fandom? And if not, would any other fan-artists be interesting in using such a comm?

Anyone wanna help me get something like that started?

Vidders.net's Cat(alog)

One of the issues with the Vidders.net network is that there are so many vids on the network that it can be hard to find just the one you are looking for. There is now a very user friendly Cat(alog) that will begin to populate with some of the amazing vids on the network by vidders such as Balistik, Luminosity, Charmax, Thedothatgirl, and many more. There are just about 4 right now but we plan on adding about 1,000 more to the collection but it will not be overwhelming as you will be able to search by Vidder, fandom, musical, artist, etc and find what you are looking for very easily.

This catalog can be viewed both inside and outside the network (so you can get a sense of the vids there). If you are not a member you can view at the following Google site link Vidders Catalog (to view the videos you will have to log into the site to see them). We'll update as we get closer to our 1K goal.

Yes, I shamelessly used the word Cat as an abbreviation for Catalog. The audience for Cats is far larger than Vidding even in a community discussion for Vidding so I hope you understand.

We plan to expand this project and create other catalogs to include other collections of awesome vids. 

If you have any questions send me a private message or if you think it's a question others reading this can benefit from leave a comment.

From where I'm standing, weather is being deceptively pleasant. Sun is shining, birds are singing. Gorgeous day on the island.

From another perspective though:



AHHHHHHHH. So this was taken an hour or two ago. Guess what's at our doorstep... /o\

1. I just whiled away an hour amusing myself playing Pictionary with a neural network: Quick, Draw!. I'm there drawing my masterpiece Pig and it guesses "the Great Wall of China". *dies laughing*

2. Fic Rec! I have a major weakness for Angel/Demon AUs, and this series certainly delivers. *___*

3. I had Moonlight sitting in my laptop for quite a few months now, and was working up to watching it. I finally did this evening. I'd also seen two other queer-themed films this week, Pride and Handsome Devil, both of which I enjoyed and found pretty upbeat with uplifting endings.

I knew Moonlight would have a whole different tone and braced myself for it going in. Poor child. It was heartbreaking. The ending felt abrupt. I still don't know how I feel about it, but am glad that it was made, and that these kind of stories are being told, and getting recognition by the film industry.
