Hello, lovely members! I apologize that it has been quite some time since I've posted a journal update. I'm glad the see the club more active than ever and the members posting so much awesome art and writing! It's been so encouraging seeing more and more of you join up and help form our very own little Starbound community here on DA.
As the title suggests, FadedSketch and I have decided that it's time to host another group-wide art contest. Any member of Starbound Dreamers is welcome and encouraged to participate!
This subject this time is draw your favorite (named) NPC. Including your own character or more than one NPC is up to you. Screenshots and photo-manipulations will be automatically disqualified, but pixel art and renders are more than welcome along with digital and traditional drawings.
The prizes will be provided by the talented this time around, so if you have any questions about them, direct them to her and she will be happy to assist you. They are as follows:
1st Place: 2 Free Commissions (info here:fav.me/d8g08p6) 250
2nd Place: 1 Basic Illustration (Shading + details, no background), 150
3rd Place: 1 Pixel (icon, page-dolls, other pixels)(no animation), 100
The deadline is May 10. Please submit your entry to the new folder, "NPC Art Contest." Only one contest entry per member, please. Happy drawing!
As for other general news and announcements, I am currently looking for someone who would be willing and able to host a Starbound server specifically for the members of Starbound Dreamers. Please send me a note if you would be interested. We would also welcome and appreciate anyone who wants to contribute to future contest prizes or donate points to the group! I would love to eventually make this a supergroup if there's enough support from the members.
I'm also tossing around the idea of new folders for the group, and I'd value everyone's opinion. I'm considering adding NSFW and NPCs. Thoughts?
On the subject of submission categories, please, as always, attempt to submit to the correct one. From now on if it's clear that you just let it default to Novakid, your submission will be declined and you'll have to submit again.
Thanks again to all of our awesome, active members!
