I picked up an Issue of ImagineFx and it said you guys were looking for more artists, so how does it work? just show you some of my work and see if its good enough?

what happens when Santharian takes over the world and starts selling D&D type books? do the artists get full time jobs? just wondering where the site is going.

Im new to the art world, but i think i have a good enough handle on this to start drawing for people to see... let me know what i can do to be part of the team

thanks

It's called The Compendium, a sort of encyclopedia on caelereth. (welcome by the way!)
We're all eagerly awaiting your work, since the lack of artists is neverending. ( Wouldn't it be great to have art made for every entry?! )

And if we're ever going commercial, i suppose the best, and most willing artists might have some career posibilities with Santharia Inc. :p

Welcome, Scarecrow!  Delighted to see that someone found their way here from the magazine - we were wondering if that would attract artists!

Sure, pick something and try your hand at it.  It doesn't have to be as spectacular as a dark unicorn - we'd love to see even a bowlful of ripe Lýth’bél (Santharian tomatoes) on a table lit by a shaft of sunlight...

Anyhow, please do keep looking around both the Development Board - we have this Artist's Workshop thread where you can both view and post - and around the main site www.santharia.com itself.

Enjoy the world that is about to open before you!

Regards from the bard,
Judith

By "dark unicorn" you mean this?
:D  - I just couldn't resist lol

There is a strange, but working, relationship between writers and artists in Santharia, sometimes their works do relate on purpose (like an artist drawing especially for a written piece, or a writer writing especially for an art-piece), sometimes they don't, they just find themselves, and each other, here :)  So, if you have a portfolio somewhere online, maybe you could share it with us, and then let the inspiration do its work. And you could also try something new, or adapt, or propose... (like that link above :p )

Smiths unicorn would need a pic....
But we do have a "common" one already which is at least partly black, look here, so maybe try your hands at something else...

And then - the pictures need to be coloured and fitting to what we have on the site already (concerning style - no modern art! ;)  ).

If you would have them online already, a portfolio as Smith said, that would be great, it is easy to do a small website. Otherwise you can scan them in or take a pic with a digicam and send them to me and I upload them for you.

Hello from me as well, ScareCr0ws!

To briefly answer your first question: Santharia is a completely non-profit project, so every piece of artwork on the site is shared by artists with us. We are explicitely allowed to have these pictures on the site or artists draw pictures for the Dream because they like the idea behind Santharia and the world we're building. The pictures remain property of the artists, and as we do not intend to make money with the site, we have no intention to sell pictures to someone. Should such a possibility be ever taken in consideration, every single artist would have to give his/her consent. But we're not going into a commercial direction, stay assured, that's against the site's intention. We also have no (concrete) plans regarding world domination. :biggrin

That said, some examples of your work would indeed be helpful, because things we put up should fit to the rest in style and quality. You can also send pictures to me if you have no webspace to put things up, use webmaster@santharia.com.
