Welcome, fellow artists!

What is artbeta? Here is our FAQ.
In short, if you are an artist, you may post your works in progress here to be beta'd by peers! The community is closed and friends locked to make sure the works of art aren't spoiled to the masses. Only artists may join and must be 16 years or older.

1) Please comment on this post with the following information:

2) Go to the Userinfo and join the community to be added to the moderation queue.
3) The Mods will verify and approve your request.

We ask for a link to your art because:
1)You must be an artist to join artbeta. We will verify.
2)You must have a place where you can upload art.

Send questions, comments, or suggestions to your friendly, helpful mods at lj.artbeta@gmail.com.

link to site with art: either theopteryx or thegaystarfish
reason for joining: I used to be a member but then I deleted my art journal and moved homes! It was always so helpful and I am so so so happy that it's being revived. Artbeta is such an awesome resource!
bit about your art/fanart past: I work predominantly in bandom nowadays, mostly MCR. It's way too much fun. I started out posting fanart for the LotR and LotRPS fandoms, and then moved on to Harry Potter, Heroes, Supernatural, etc. I've been in bandom for over two years, though. thegaystarfish is a hugely silly bandom AU comic I update really, really infrequently, ha.

link to site with art: my art tag on lj and my deviantart.
reason for joining: heard about the comm through theopteryx, and I like providing and receiving art feedback.
bit about your art/fanart past: I've been in art classes for years, since I was a little kid, and now I'm in art school, so mostly I've just done "class projects". I've only recently started moving into fanart, mainly bandom/MCR. I mostly like working in pencil and acrylics, but I'm trying to learn how to better use pens and watercolors.

link to site with art: fanart tag on my LJ
reason for joining: Because I finally can! I didn't have any art up on the interweb to prove that I'm an artist when I first found this community. This community is such a great idea. Getting critique is important and I also love helping others out when I can.
bit about your art/fanart past: I have been doing some form of art most of my life. I finally started doing fanart two years ago when I had the time to start doing so after years of admiring other people fanart (and just envying them on how they manage their time to do fanart while having a job/being in school). I started in bandom and have since branch out a bit.

link to site with art: http://afoxart.blogspot.com/ http://d0wn-on-paper.livejournal.com/
reason for joining: I heard about this comm from theopteryx and thought it would be really useful/helpful. :D
bit about your art/fanart past: I started drawing when I was tiny and all I could do was stick figures, developed a love of comics early in life and learned a lot by drawing fanart before I even found my way onto the internet. Started online in Harry Potter fandom, moved into Lord of the Rings/Pirates of the Caribbean, floated around in random minor fandoms then Supernatural, DC comics, and now sticking to bandom when I'm not doing art/covers for http://www.thewolfhouse.net/.

link to site with art: My art tag on lj or My website
reason for joining: I heard about the community from theopteryx and I love the idea of a whole community of art betas because asking your friends for advice is just not the same and it's so helpful to have honest critique
bit about your art/fanart past: I've always liked drawing but I really got into it when I started getting into Manga and Anime. I posted my first fanart in HP fandom, but didn't really share any of it beyond my own lj until I became active in the SGA fandom. I posted a lot of art in SGA, some during my time in SPN fandom back when its art community was much slower than it is now, and these days I'm happily drawing in Bandom.

link to site with art: My LJ: [info]brille
reason for joining: Also here via [info]theopteryx. I think this is such a fabulous idea! There are so many awesome artists on LJ, and I'd love to learn from them and share what I know as well. Hurray!
bit about your art/fanart past: For as long as I can remember I've been a compulsive doodler, so much so that throughout Uni I was referred to as the girl who we watched doodling on her laptop in my ~~~~100 lecture. Lurked for a good long while, and finally managed to get myself posting by signing up for some challenges. That's where I'm at still, but I'm pretty sure this comm will be great inspiration for my own ideas!

link to site with art: toomuchart or Deviant art
reason for joining: investigated the comm after it was mentioned by theopteryx and thought it was pretty awesome to have a place where you can get concrit and help from other arts kids. Im very quick to write off some pieces of work and will help having the views of others to see what i can change/spur me on.
bit about your art/fanart past: I've been drawing for as long as i can remember and away from the general art kid work, i doodle bandom stuff :]
11th-Nov-2009 06:33 pm (UTC)
Approved :)

link to site with art: dA account, also posted to my journal.
reason for joining: I have a good sense of composition and would love to offer feedback on the works of fellow artists.
bit about your art/fanart past: I generally don't draw fanart, but I've been an avid consumer of it for the last seven years and learned to draw from Pokemon cards and manga. I draw weird shit with amputees and physical anomalies, and rarely use anything other than traditional media. For a short time I helped with and participated in the artlulz chats.

link to site with art: da or LJ. There isn't much but I do try to practice a lot
reason for joining: Honest constructive criticism is hard to come by and I could use a lot of help, and I think I'm getting at the stage where I finally have something useful to say to others
bit about your art/fanart past: Hrmm well I like fan art because I like the idea of illustrating stories. Right now I'm a little mono-fandom but things change. I've run a fanart group on dA before, though I don't have time for it now, and I've done a few exchanges as an artist.

link to site with art: art tag on LJ
reason for joining: I'd love a bit of support with trying to figure out the best ways to approach things, especially using Photoshop.
bit about your art/fanart past: I've always been creative. Started drawing properly (ie, keeping my drawings) at high school, copying manga, and now I have a design degree and I want to be an illustrator. In the mean time I do fanart cos it's fun =D
