Hey! I'm Lukah, and I'm in charge of visual arts on DeviantART-Smiles
Visual art being drawings, paintings, photography, and other things like that.I do look at the poetry and stories, but Nak is in charge of that, so I'm not supposed to touch it, haha
SO! Being head of the visual arts here, I'm open to anyone with questions, AND I'm here to give everyone an idea of what they should be submitting!So what's the group about?The idea of the group is happiness and community! Through the group people can find available to them all sorts of great things such as feedback, exposure, fun events, the opportunity to make new friends and meet interesting people, positive energy, a place to go when you need cheering up, group chat events, and a whole bunch of other neat stuff that we'll make up and decide on along the way!!
Who is in charge of this great place?Naktarra
is the real brains of the operation, doing all the not so fun stuff that keeps this place magical and running smoothly! And I handle all the visuals you guys submit and stuff.
She's the Batman to my Robin, with her gadgets and top secret stuff, and my fun shenanigans and pretty colours!So what do you want from me?
SMILE! And also feel free to join and become a part of our loving tightly knit community! The point of it all is to instill happiness amongst each other and ourselves! Another thing you could do, is join some of the affiliate groups, which are more specific about what to do in the community, such as writing, critiquing, or world-building and collaborating on a giant comic!So what kind of stuff would I submit?
Art associated with, or about DeviantART-Smiles, is obvious of course, but another big thing is motivation and encouragement!
Motivational work, gift art for others, happy and inspiring themes, and even just silly stuff to make people smile are all encouraged and welcomed with open arms!
What we DON'T want, are mean, hurtful or hateful things. No one here wants to deal with anything that's racist/sexist/ableist/homophobic/transphobic/etc.So how can I get involved, and what can I do?
Right now we're just sorting up everything that will be planned and everything that will go on in the future, but of course we're gonna need help!!
As we progress we will need people who are willing to take out time of their lives to help when we need resources or materials!
Contributors would be expected to be able to run and host prompts, contests and even--if this becomes a thing--be in control of the critiquing or feedback section of the group. We would love to have a solid team of people helping and even just a smile will make the group's cogs keep on turning. If you're interested in helping out, note Naktarra!
So if you have any comments or questions, feel free to discuss them with either Nak or me, and together we will do our best to figure things out!
And also how to get you to smile, and join our group!
