Journal Entry: Thu Nov 15, 2007, 8:09 AM
Hi there! :glomp:

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :boogie:

Since August I'm in the middle of my university exams and I'm almost done :D. I have/had to take 13 exams - 4 written examinations, 2 practical tests in art and 7 oral examinations.
I don't know how the written exams turned out but the oral exams were great so far - far better than I ever imagined :dance: And after I took two oral exams this week (yesterday and today) there is only one more to go :) ... and it's in art and I have almost 3 weeks for the preparation! I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooo happy =D

Medivac/Adrenalin Junkies anyone?

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 26, 2007, 7:51 AM
Hi there!

Medivac/Adrenalin Junkies is a TV show I used to love some years back. I came across an episode on youtube that reminded me of the show. Browsing the internet I realised that there is not much to find about the series.
Does anyone remember the show? Does anyone know where I could get episodes?

News from the GGPP - Help needed!

Hi there! :wave:

Well, it's been a while since the project was finished and the picture was revealed (=> neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… ).
Now that's what happened since then:

You may remember that :iconwearmanyhats: made a huge print of the group pic and took it to the Gathering. We agreed that she would pay for the print in advance and would either get her money back from the sale at the Gathering auction or from me in case the print would not be sold. Although our picture got much positive feedback (at least that's what I heard from some Gathering attendees) the print was not sold.  So I tried to contact :iconwearmanyhats: via note to discuss our next steps.  I wanted to try selling the print at DA. I also asked her to give me her paypal information so I can pay her the money back in case we also can't sell the print here. But I did not get a reply. So I wrote a note again ... and again ... and there still is no reply. I'm really worried about her now. I hope she is alright.
Can anyone tell me what happened after the Gathering? Does anyone have news about :iconwearmanyhats: ? Anyone? Please? I'd be really thankfull for everything!

Greetings

Here we go with the final Gargoyles Group Picture Project journal entry.

First of all a BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG     T H A N K      Y O U      to all participating artists. I'm really overwhelmed by your achievements. Some artists have never  tried cell shading before and there was even someone who did her very first computer coloration for this project. There were those who drew for the project allthough they had plenty of obligations in their real lives and barely any spare time at all. There were people who joined in the very last minutes to enrich the picture with their characters and those who drew some extra characters to fill a gap. And you all were AMAZING!!!! I am very very proud to have had the opportunity to work with so many great artists! I am really thankfull!!!! :thanks:  

Thank you all, who helped the project by spreading the word in their journal or elsewhere! Special thanks go to the Gargoyles Club :icongargoylesclub: for linking to us in the club's journal! :thanks:

Thank you all, who supported the project with advice and encouragement! :thanks:

Special Thanks to Angelusconna :iconwearmanyhats: and BrooklynX :iconbrooklynx: for their effort on taking the picture to the Gathering! Thank you, Angelusconna :iconwearmanyhats:, for printing, providing the money for the time being and taking care of the picture for the Gathering!!! Without you our picture would not have made it to the con! :thanks:

Thank you, Rita :iconritam: and BrooklynX :iconbrooklynx:, for providing your characters! :thanks:

A big thank you also to the staff members. I could not have organized this project alone! :thanks:




I hope you all enjoiyed the project and I hope you like the result. As for me, I am really happy and proud to be part of this! We did a great job and ... - also it really was exhausting sometimes - I would do it again! :)

GGPP at the Gathering of the Gargoyles

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 21, 2007, 5:51 AM
GGPP


Hi there, friends! :wave:

Tommorrow is the day: the 11th Gathering of the Gargoyles starts on June 22 in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee... and the Gargoyles Group Picture will be there!!  :airborne:
:iconwearmanyhats: printed it and she said: "The print came out gorgeous! I can't wait to get it to the Gathering!"
I'm sooo excited!!! The picture will be revealed at the Gathering and for all who - like me ^^ - cannot attend, the picture will be revealed online in my DA journal on June 25. I'm really looking forward to it!!!

The print that is for sale at the Gathering will be unique: It will be about 1m x 2m big and it will have a frame with the signatures of all participating artists.

I will offer 2 different versions of the picture for download later: one version that can be printed as big as the Gathering print but doesn't have the frame and one version with frame that can be printed  in high quality in A2 size maximum.

Now I wish all people who attend the Gathering 2007 a great time and much fun!!!!

34 artists took part in the project and the final pic shows 63 characters!! :boogie: :clap: That's so amazing, awsome,... no, wait, I'll save the rest for the final GGPP journal entry ;)

Artists who do not have a "signature recieved" behind their names: I need your signatures ASAP!!! If you do not send me a signature until this saturday, I will take a signature from one of your latest pictures or just write your DA name in a font.


What will happen next: If everything goes according to plan, :iconwearmanyhats: will recieve the file next monday at the latest (I'm really sorry that I could not do it till yesterday!!! Working with this huge file is very difficult and it slows the computer down very much, so it takes very long. I'm really sorry!!). She will print it for us and take it to the Gathering. The print will be sold there. The money from the sale will be used to pay the costs for the print and the exhibition at the Gathering's art show. If there should be money left, it will be donated to the Gathering.
After the Gathering is over, I will write a final journal entry for the GGPP 2007 in which I post a link to a huge version of the file. However, it will not have the artist's signatures on it - so the print that is for sale at the Gathering will be unique. Then I'll send a small version of the group pic to the DA Gargoyles Club along with a link to the final GGPP journal entry. And ... yeah ... after 6 months of work the GGPP will be ended.

CU later

Back with the Gargoyles Group Picture Project

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 1, 2007, 12:19 PM
GGPP


Hi! :wave:

After a long time of absence I'm back again with a Gargoyles Group Picture Project (short: GGPP) journal entry.
It contains all important information about the project. For people who already know the project only the news section is important. It will be updated with the latest news about the project. Also if there would be changes in the submission rules they would appear there first, so you won't have to read the whole very very very looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong entry again and again to check for important changes.

You can read all about the birth and development of this project in the old journal entry neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… and in it’s comments.

What we try to create

The goal is to create a picture showing as many gargoyle characters of the fandom as possible drawn by as many artists of the fandom as possible.
“Gargoyle character” means that the character has to be a gargoyle or at least half-gargoyle.
This project is mainly about gargoyles created by fans, e.g. in fanfictions or as garg-selves. We also will add the main TV-show gargoyles (Goliath, Hudson, Angela, Bronx, Brooklyn, Lexington, Broadway, Demona, Garg-Elisa) in the center of the pic as they did inspire many of us very much and we want to show our admiration, thankfullness and love this way.


How we work

Basically: Every artist is invited to draw a picture of a gargoyle (maybe more than one) and then send it to me. I'll put everything together in a huge picture with a background, trying to include special relationships between the characters.



RULES


About the characters

1. The character has to be a gargoyle – preferably a character created by a fan (e.g. fanfic characters or garg-selves). The main characters of the TV show (Goliath, Hudson, Angela, Bronx, Brooklyn, Lexington, Broadway, Demona, Garg-Elisa) can be drawn, too. Please send me a note if you are interested in drawing one or two of them.

2. Every character must be on the final picture only once!
==> We have to make sure that no artist draws a character that is already beeing drawn by someone else: Please tell me, which character you want to draw, before you start drawing. At the bottom of this entry there is a list of all participants along with the characters they want to draw (in case they already told me) so you can see which characters were already chosen.<==

3. You can draw your own character or a character created by someone else.
==>If you want to draw someone else's character, ask the respective owner for permission first!<==

4. The number of characters one fan can add to the picture is limited to 2. This is NOT a limit on how many gargoyles one artist is allowed to draw.
==> For example: an artist is allowed to draw 2 characters that he/she wants to see in the picture AND he/she can also draw 2 characters for a fan who requested so<==
Please keep the total number of the gargoyles you draw at a normal level to avoid that one artist draws half of all characters on the final picture or something like that. Canon characters are not included in this rule. You can draw 2 of your own gargoyles and a canon character if you like.

About the images

5. The image has to be a full body image.
==>The pose has to be suitable for a group picture, so it will mostly be a standing pose. Also we could use some sitting, kneeling or squatting characters for the first row. But there is a limited number of characters in these poses  so if you want to draw such a pose, please tell me in time! Also we could possibly add one or two flying characters - please tell me in time, too, if you'd like to do something like that! If you have any other special pose in mind, please contact me and I will tell you, whether this will be possible for the pic or not.<==

6. The pictures have to be PC coloured. If it is absolutely impossible for an artist to hand in a PC coloured picture then I will make exceptions because I don't want anyone to be excluded from the project. But as the characters should fit together in the final pic as good as possible, I prefer PC coloured pictures. All artists should use the same colouring style - flat colouring and cell shading (like in the TV show).

7. light source: we will work with an imaginary light source from above. This light source is not a strong one so please don't draw too dramatic shadows. I may have to change the brightness and contrast of your drawing to fit it into the final picture.

8. The pictures must have a transparent or white background so that I can fit them into the group picture easily.

9. The image must not be too small. I'll only accept pictures with a minimum height of 1000px at 150dpi . The images must not be too big. E.g. 3000x3000px at 300dpi would be waaaayyyyy to big ^^

About the relationships

10. I will try to include special relationships between the characters in the picture. If you want to draw a cuddling couple or something, feel free to do so and hand it in as one picture. BUT not every relationship is allowed.
==> For original characters: allowed are couples based on the real life (e.g. my garg-self and the garg-self of my boyfriend) and based on the fanfictions that the characters are originally from (e.g. Ariana and Kirin or Greame and Lucy). Not allowed are relationships that change the original character's story (e.g. Kirin and Lucy).
I also will try my best to show friends or members of the same clan together.
==> Please give me the information I need to do so together with your pic <===
==> for TV show gargoyles: allowed are couples based on the TV-show (e.g. Brodway and Angela) and based on Greg's masterplan (e.g. Brooklyn and Katana (or Sata as she is called in TGS)). Not allowed are Mary Sue thingies (e.g. Brooklyn and me) or relationships not based on Greg's story (e.g. Demona and Hudson) as these are couples that only some people want to see and others may feel disturbed by them. The TV show Gargs belong to all of us equally!


Deadline

I know that most of you are really busy - so am I ^^° - so I'll give you some time. Let's say the pictures should be handed in till June 1st 2007.

How to contact me

If you want to participate or have questions, you can write a comment to this journal, drop me a note or write me an e-mail (neomae@freenet.de). Please don't write a comment on my main page, I may not see it!


Exchange of information

==>The forum at my DA userpage: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… <==

I opened a thread for those who are searching someone who draws their characters or for artists who are searching for characters they can draw: The GGPP character thread.
There also is a thread about the use of the TV-show gargoyles if there should be the need to discuss the matter. You also are allowed to open threads there yourself.

Alkaline-Lady told me that for her the forum did not work, so you might have problems using it, too! I realised that mostly the exchange of information takes place in the journals, anyway, so this should not be a big problem

==> The journal itself<==

You can write comments or notes to me and I will add offers and petitions to the news section.

==> Polls <==

Definetely essential for important decisions.

Old polls:

- Should there be a limit on the number of characters that an artist is allowed to submit to GGPP?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… (voting has ended and a decision was made)
- Will we use gargoyles from the TV show, too?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… has ended and a decision was made)
- How many characters is each fan allowed to add to the Group Picture Project?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… (voting has ended and a decision was made)



NEWS SECTION


- The project has a banner now.



I'd be really thankfull if you could place it somewhere in your DA journal or on other websides to spread the word!

***


- I still need people to draw the canon characters. If you are interested, please tell me!
All main TV show characters were chosen!
purplegoldfish - Goliath and Garg-Elisa
Galax - Lexington
carolinebradley - Demona
Nebulan - Hudson and Bronx
Balron - Angela and Broadway
Neomae - Brooklyn (However, as I did not start yet, I'd give Brooklyn to another artist, if you want to draw him.)  


***


- I recieved a reply to my e-mail to the Gathering staff. They said we are allowed to show the final picture at the Gathering but we must purchase the space for it. "There is a $10 charge per display board to help cover the cost of renting the boards. Each display board is approximately 4'x4'. Table space is also available for $10 for one 6'x2' table." Azrael and me would pay for 2 display boards for the picture. But we have to make sure that we really WILL HAVE a picture to display at the Gathering. So I - like :iconepantiras: suggested - I ask you all for WIPs. Please, as soon as you start your picture send me a WIP. If you already starded, please send me a WIP. Please hand in at least one WIP for each character you want to draw till April 15th. That makes it easier for me to figure out how many pictures I will recieve in the end and I can already start with the background and plan how to arrange the characters.

However, I asked if the final picture could be given to Greg and they replied: "As for giving the finished image to Greg, that's probably not going to be possible, because it will have a lot of non-canon content in it. Since the Gargoyles story is still very much alive and being worked on, he tries to avoid a lot of fan-character influence. Less chance of mixing up or accidentally using another's ideas, among other reasons. If the answer changes, though, we'll definitely let you know. " I totally understand this and now I ask you: what else could we do with the image? My suggestion would be to try the silent auction at the Gathering: " The Gathering of the Gargoyles 2007 does not require artists to sell their work, but if an artist wishes to offer artwork for sale, we provide a means. There are two ways to sell your work at The Gathering 2007 Art Show.
The first option is the fixed price method. You can give the item a set sale price, for example, $20.00. In this case, the item would be sold to the first buyer willing to pay your price.
The second option is the silent auction. If you wish to participate in the silent auction, your art will be given bid sheet. Interested buyers will write their names and bids on your piece's assigned auction sheet. Once you have three bids on your sheet, your item will proceed to the live auction. There, it will be presented to the audience for bidding, starting at the price of the highest bid on the silent auction sheet. Once bought, all items will remain in the art room until paid for at the end of the convention."
I don't think that we would earn that much but maybe... at least a little? If anyone would buy the picture we could give the money to ... the gathering staff as a donation? I don't know.
=> What would you do with the picture when it is finished? <= Please make suggestions and let us think about it together!

- :iconpinkgargess: is searching for someone who colours her pictures
- :iconalkaline-lady: offers to draw other peoples characters for the project
- :iconmommyspike: would allow other people to draw her characters (Spike, Kirin and Airiana are already chosen!)



:spotlight-left: *** UPDATE *** UPDATE *** UPDATE ***  :spotlight-right:


1. We purchased a table at the Gathering Art Show for the final picture. There is one problem left: Shipping the print from Germany to the USA would take too long and would be way too expensive, so we need someone, who attends this year's Gathering and would volunteer to make a high quality print of the picture and take it to the Gathering. Azrael and me will pay for everything in advance via paypal. WE REALLY NEED SOMEONE TO HELP US OUT HERE OR WE CANNOT TAKE THE PICTURE TO THE GATHERING!
(A word about the short time: When I set the deadline I did not plan to take the picture to the Gathering - otherwise the deadline would have been one month earlier - but I liked Siril's suggestion very much and some of the participating artists did, too, so I now try my best to make this happen.)

You can contact me via e-mail: neo_mae@freenet.de, via DA note and via ICQ :icq: 254 324 280

2. I plan a forrest/rock scene for the BG so we have plenty opportunities to arrange the characters. Does anyone has other suggestions?

3. I want to make a frame around the picture where the signature of every participant can be found. Please send me your signatures along with the names of the characters you drew (neo_mae@freenet.de). The signatures should be at least 500px at the shortest side, 100dpi and if possible in black colour (not pencil).

4. To make contacting you faster and easier please let me know your e-mail addresses!

Hi guys! :wave:

REMINDER: Deadline June 1st - 10 DAYS LEFT

This is mainly the same thing as the note all participants should have recieved but as I would still take new participants in, I make it public:

1. We purchased a table at the Gathering Art Show for the final picture. There is one problem left: Shipping the print from Germany to the USA would take too long and would be way too expensive, so we need someone, who attends this year's Gathering and would volunteer to make a high quality print of the picture and take it to the Gathering. Azrael and me will pay for everything in advance via paypal. WE REALLY NEED SOMEONE TO HELP US OUT HERE OR WE CANNOT TAKE THE PICTURE TO THE GATHERING!
(A word about the short time: When I set the deadline I did not plan to take the picture to the Gathering - otherwise the deadline would have been one month earlier - but I liked Siril's suggestion very much and some of the participating artists did, too, so I now try my best to make this happen.)

2. I plan a forrest/rock scene for the BG so we have plenty opportunities to arrange the characters. Does anyone has other suggestions?

3. I want to make a frame around the picture where the signature of every participant can be found. Please send me your signatures along with the names of the characters you drew (neo_mae@freenet.de). The signatures should be at least 500px at the shortest side, 100dpi and if possible in black colour (not pencil).

Hi there!

About 2 hours ago I returned from the MephitMiniCon 10, the second furry con I attended (the first one was Eurofurence 12 last year). It was absolutely great! The Orga did a really good job! Ok, the weather could have been a little better but ... anyway, it could have been worse, too ;)
I met some very nice people and I got to know some great artists! I was allowed to draw in some sketch books and some artists drew in mine. One of them was :iconkhaosdog: . Her sketch is where my new avatar comes from.

All in all I had a great time and I thank all who made it a great time! I made some wonderful memories which I'll keep in my heart. Looking forward to the next con!

Art theft

Journal Entry: Sun May 6, 2007, 6:00 AM


Hi there!

Today I got a note from :iconkytheraoa: telling me that one of my pictures was uploaded to someone's MySpace account and obviously this person claims it her own .oO (Wow)

And I'm not the only artist she stole art from. Kythera wrote down the story in her livejournal. You can read everything here:
kythera.livejournal.com/491474…
and here:
kythera.livejournal.com/491737…

The funny thing is: This person even wrote a big "NO STEALING" under each of the stolen pictures :rofl:


Well, I really was surprised!

Yeah, I hate art thieves. Not only do they claim the hard work of others their own, they also ignore the feelings some artists have put into their work. This is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

However, I must say I'm not as annoyed as I thought I would be. After all, who is she? Someone who has not what it takes to make good drawings - fun in drawing, patience, passion? Someone who has to steal art to get attention?? Someone who has to get attention and boost her ego that way because she can't do it herself, with her own achievements??? Well ... I wouldn't wanne be in her shoes ... Anyway, who gives a damn about her little MySpace account? It could have been worse after all *has to think of this stupid pop "artist" who made thousands of dollars by stealing other peoples ideas and works*.

And the final thing is .... my art seems to be good enough to get stolen ;) That really made my day ^^

I wrote an e-mail to the MySpace stuff and reported the art theft. Now I'm waiting for their reply.


Thank you very much for your big help on this matter :iconkytheraoa: !!!!!!

Hi there! :wave:

Yeah, it was a little quiet around here lately, except for some submitted deviations. Didn't spend much time here because I didn't have much time at all.  There were many other things I had to deal with, most of all my big work for university and the start of the new semester.

I had to leave many comments and notes unanswered until now and I'm really sorry about that!!! I'll try to catch up with everything as good as I can!

Now I'm back and I'll focus on the ongoing Gargoyles Group Picture Project (neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…)
It really needs some updates. The project is alive and we still welcome participants!

Greetigs from Neomae

GargGroupPicProject NEWS

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 10, 2007, 4:04 AM

Hi again!

I have some important news concerning the Gargoyles Group Picture Project. Infos and the updated rules about the project can be found here: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…

First of all, the project has it's own journal style now so that you can recognize entries concerning the project easier.

Second: I recieved a reply to my e-mail to the Gathering staff. They said we are allowed to show the final picture at the Gathering but we must purchase the space for it. "There is a $10 charge per display board to help cover the cost of renting the boards. Each display board is approximately 4'x4'. Table space is also available for $10 for one 6'x2' table." Azrael and me would pay for 2 display boards for the picture. But we have to make sure that we really WILL HAVE a picture to display at the Gathering. So I - like :iconepantiras: suggested - I ask you all for WIPs. Please, as soon as you start your picture send me a WIP. If you already starded, please send me a WIP. Please hand in at least one WIP for each character you want to draw till April 15th. That makes it easier for me to figure out how many pictures I will recieve in the end and I can already start with the background and plan how to arrange the characters.

However, I asked if the final picture could be given to Greg and they replied: "As for giving the finished image to Greg, that's probably not going to be possible, because it will have a lot of non-canon content in it. Since the Gargoyles story is still very much alive and being worked on, he tries to avoid a lot of fan-character influence. Less chance of mixing up or accidentally using another's ideas, among other reasons. If the answer changes, though, we'll definitely let you know. " I totally understand this and now I ask you: what else could we do with the image? My suggestion would be to try the silent auction at the Gathering: " The Gathering of the Gargoyles 2007 does not require artists to sell their work, but if an artist wishes to offer artwork for sale, we provide a means. There are two ways to sell your work at The Gathering 2007 Art Show.
The first option is the fixed price method. You can give the item a set sale price, for example, $20.00. In this case, the item would be sold to the first buyer willing to pay your price.
The second option is the silent auction. If you wish to participate in the silent auction, your art will be given bid sheet. Interested buyers will write their names and bids on your piece's assigned auction sheet. Once you have three bids on your sheet, your item will proceed to the live auction. There, it will be presented to the audience for bidding, starting at the price of the highest bid on the silent auction sheet. Once bought, all items will remain in the art room until paid for at the end of the convention."
I don't think that we would earn that much but maybe... at least a little? If anyone would buy the picture we could give the money to ... the gathering staff as a donation? I don't know.
=> What would you do with the picture when it is finished? <= Please make suggestions and let us think about it together!

Third: I need people to draw the canon characters. If you are interested, please tell me!
Goliath and Garg-Elisa were alrady given to purplegoldfish, Lexington will be drawn by Galax , carolinebradley will draw Demona, Nebulan is working on Hudson and Bronx   
Brooklyn, Broadway and Angela are still searching for an artist to draw a nice picture of them ;) (Keep in mind: drawing a canon character does not fall under the 2-characters-rule. You still can add two fan characters to the pic, if you want to!)

Hi @ all! This is again a new Gargoyles Group Picture Project (short: GGPP) journal entry containing the updated and summarised rules - this time with two important decisions made :) The old one where you can read all about the birth and development of this project - in the journal entry itself and in it's comments - can be found here: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…

What we try to create

The goal is to create a picture showing as many gargoyle characters of the fandom as possible drawn by as many artists of the fandom as possible.
"Gargoyle character" means that the character has to be a gargoyle or at least half-gargoyle.
This project is mainly about gargoyles created by fans, e.g. in fanfictions or as garg-selves. We also will add the main TV-show gargoyles (Goliath, Hudson, Angela, Bronx, Brooklyn, Lexington, Broadway, Demona, Garg-Elisa) in the center of the pic as they did inspire many of us very much and we want to show our admiration, thankfullness and love this way.


How we work

Basically: Every artist is invited to draw a picture of a gargoyle (maybe more than one) and then send it to me. I'll put everything together in a huge picture with a background, trying to include special relationships between the characters.

Rules

About the characters

1. The character has to be a gargoyle – preferably a character created by a fan (e.g. fanfic characters or garg-selves). The main characters of the TV show (Goliath, Hudson, Angela, Bronx, Brooklyn, Lexington, Broadway, Demona, Garg-Elisa) can be drawn, too. Please send me a note if you are interested in drawing one or two of them.

2. Every character must be on the final picture only once!
==> We have to make sure that no artist draws a character that is already beeing drawn by someone else: Please tell me, which character you want to draw, before you start drawing. At the bottom of this entry there is a list of all participants along with the characters they want to draw (in case they already told me) so you can see which characters were already chosen.<==

3. You can draw your own character or a character created by someone else.
==>If you want to draw someone else's character, ask the respective owner for permission first!<==

4. The number of characters one fan can add to the picture is limited to 2. This is NOT a limit on how many gargoyles one artist is allowed to draw.
==> For example: an artist is allowed to draw 2 characters that he/she wants to see in the picture AND he/she can also draw 2 characters for a fan who requested so<==
Please keep the total number of the gargoyles you draw at a normal level to avoid that one artist draws half of all characters on the final picture or something like that. Canon characters are not included in this rule. You can draw 2 of your own gargoyles and a canon character if you like.

About the images

5. The image has to be a full body image.
==>The pose has to be suitable for a group picture, so it will mostly be a standing pose. Also we could use some sitting, kneeling or squatting characters for the first row. But there is a limited number of characters in these poses  so if you want to draw such a pose, please tell me in time! Also we could possibly add one or two flying characters - please tell me in time, too, if you'd like to do something like that! If you have any other special pose in mind, please contact me and I will tell you, whether this will be possible for the pic or not.<==

6. The pictures have to be PC coloured. If it is absolutely impossible for an artist to hand in a PC coloured picture then I will make exceptions because I don't want anyone to be excluded from the project. But as the characters should fit together in the final pic as good as possible, I prefer PC coloured pictures. All artists should use the same colouring style - flat colouring and cell shading (like in the TV show).

7. light source: we will work with an imaginary light source from above. This light source is not a strong one so please don't draw too dramatic shadows. I may have to change the brightness and contrast of your drawing to fit it into the final picture. If this will be the case, I will write you a note and show you the changed picture before I add it.

8. The pictures must have a transparent or white background so that I can fit them into the group picture easily.

9. The image must not be too small. I'll only accept pictures with a minimum height of 1000px at 150dpi . The images must not be too big. E.g. 3000x3000px at 300dpi would be waaaayyyyy to big ^^

About the relationships

10. I will try to include special relationships between the characters in the picture. If you want to draw a cuddling couple or something, feel free to do so and hand it in as one picture. BUT not every relationship is allowed.
==> For original characters: allowed are couples based on the real life (e.g. my garg-self and the garg-self of my boyfriend) and based on the fanfictions that the characters are originally from (e.g. Ariana and Kirin or Greame and Lucy). Not allowed are relationships that change the original character's story (e.g. Kirin and Lucy).
I also will try my best to show friends or members of the same clan together.
==> Please give me the information I need to do so together with your pic <===
==> for TV show gargoyles: allowed are couples based on the TV-show (e.g. Brodway and Angela) and based on Greg's masterplan (e.g. Brooklyn and Katana (or Sata as she is called in TGS)). Not allowed are Mary Sue thingies (e.g. Brooklyn and me) or relationships not based on Greg's story (e.g. Demona and Hudson) as these are couples that only some people want to see and others may feel disturbed by them. The TV show Gargs belong to all of us equally!


Deadline

I know that most of you are really busy - so am I ^^° - so I'll give you some time. Let's say the pictures should be handed in till June 1st 2007.

How to contact me

If you want to participate or have questions, you can write a comment to this journal, drop me a note or write me an e-mail (neomae@stargazerspride.net). Please don't write a comment on my main page, I may not see it!


Exchange of information

==>The forum at my DA userpage: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… <==

I opened a thread for those who are searching someone who draws their characters or for artists who are searching for characters they can draw: The GGPP character thread.
There also is a thread about the use of the TV-show gargoyles if there should be the need to discuss the matter. You also are allowed to open threads there yourself.

I realised that the forum is not used so I give you a second opportunity:

==> The journal itself<==

You can write comments or notes and I will add questions and petitions here:

- :iconpinkgargess: is searching for someone who colours her pictures
- :iconalkaline-lady: offers to draw other peoples characters for the project
- :iconmommyspike: would allow other people to draw her characters (Spike, Kirin and Airiana are already chosen!)

==> Polls <==

Definetely essential for important decisions.

Old polls:

- Should there be a limit on the number of characters that an artist is allowed to submit to GGPP?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… (voting has ended and a decision was made)
- Will we use gargoyles from the TV show, too?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… has ended and a decision was made)
- How many characters is each fan allowed to add to the Group Picture Project?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… (voting has ended and a decision was made)


NEWS

The project has a banner now.



I'd be really thankfull if you could place it somewhere in your DA journal or on other websides to spread the word!

GGPP reminder / Gargoyles video

Hi! :wave:

Two topics to talk about today.

First: on Feb 18th the polls for the Gargoyles Group Picture Project will be closed. If you didn't vote until now but want to, please hurry!:
Will we use gargoyles from the TV show, too?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
How many characters is each fan allowed to add to the final picture?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…

Second: I finished my first "Gargoyles" music video today. It can be watched at youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0KhrU…
It tells the story of the episode "Future Tense" from Brooklyn's point of view. The song I used is "How could this happen to me" (aka "untitled") by Simple Plan.

That's all for now. Have a nice day! CU! :)

Animal-Assisted Therapy - help needed

Hi there!

I'm close to my final exams at university and I'm working an a final thesis, which is part of my exam. The topic is the work with animals (especially dogs) in schools in a pedagogic and therapeutic way. I already have some German books and articles but there haven't been real studies about the effects of animals on human health and mind in Germany until now (except for the therapy with horses and dolphins). I heard that in America such effects have been researched and as I need a scientific base for my work I need information about that.
Does anyone of you have books or articles concerning this toppic? Or do you know webpages about it? Can you give me any sort of information like names of people who deal with animal assisted therapy? I'd be really thankfull for any sort of information!

===

As we talk about animals: here are two videos I found on youtube and I want to share
=> for cat lovers - talking cats: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iV6DQu…
=> for dog lovers - talking dogs: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCYaw5…
I don't know if they are funny but I sort of liked them ^^

===

The Gargoyles Group Picture Project is still searching for artists who want to join.
For more information have a look at the updated rules: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
The birth and developement of the project can be read here: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…

There are still two matters to decide:
Will we use gargoyles from the TV show, too?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
How many characters is each fan allowed to add to the final picture?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
The polls are open for 3 more weeks. Please vote and make your oppinion count!

===

That's all for now. Have a nice day!

GargGroupPicProject - new entry

Thu Jan 18, 2007, 4:10 AM
  • Listening to: Heavenly Metal Ballads
header


Hi @ all! This is the new Gargoyles Group Picture Project (short: GGPP) journal entry containing the updated and summarised rules to make everything less confusing. The old one where you can read all about the birth and development of this project - in the journal entry itself and in it's comments - can be found here: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…

What we try to create

The goal is to create a picture showing as many gargoyle characters of the fandom as possible drawn by as many artists of the fandom as possible.
"Gargoyle character" means that the character has to be a gargoyle or at least half-gargoyle.
This project is mainly about gargoyles created by fans, e.g. in fanfictions or as garg-selves.
We are not sure if we'll allow the use of gargoyles from the TV-show, too. It's up to you to decide this matter in the poll: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
The poll will be up for the next 4 weeks.

How we work

Basically: Every artist is invited to draw a picture of a gargoyle (maybe more than one) and then send it to me. I'll put everything together in a huge picture with a background, trying to include special relationships between the characters.

Rules

About the characters

1. The character has to be a gargoyle – preferable a character created by a fan (e.g. fanfic characters or garg-selves).
Whether gargoyles from the TV show are allowed, too, is to be decided in this poll: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
Please vote and make your opinion count!


2. Every character must be on the final picture only once!
==> We have to make sure that no artist draws a character that is already drawn by someone else: Please tell me, which character you want to draw, before you start drawing. At the bottom of the entry there is a list of all participants along with the characters they want to draw (in case they already told me) so you can see, which characters were already chosen.<==

3. You can draw your own character or a character created by someone else.
==>If you want to draw someone else's character, ask the original owner for permission first!<==

4. There will be a limit on the number of characters which one fan can add to the picture. This is NOT a limit on how many gargoyles one artist is allowed to draw.
==> For example: an artist is allowed to draw 2 characters that he/she wants to see in the picture AND he/she can also draw 2 characters for a fan who has characters but can't draw them him-/herself<==
The exact number of the characters that each fan is allowed to add is to be decided in this poll: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
It will be open for 4 weeks. Please vote and make your opinion count!

Please keep the total number of the gargoyles you draw on a normal level to avoid that one artist draws half of all characters on the final picture or something like that.

About the images

5. The image has to be a full body image.
==>The pose has to be usable for a group picture, so it will mostly be a standing pose. Also we could use some sitting, kneeling or squatting characters for the first row. But there is a limited number of characters in these poses (this number depends on the final number of characters we will have in the pic so I can't tell an exact number at the moment) so if you want to draw such a pose, please tell me in time! Also we could possibly add one or two flying characters - please tell me in time, too, if you'd like to do something like that! If you have any other special pose in mind, please note me and I will tell you, if this could be possible for the pic or not.<==

6. The pictures have to be PC coloured. If it is absolutely impossible for an artist to hand in a PC coloured picture then I will make exceptions because I don't want anyone to be excluded from the project. But as the characters should fit together in the final pic as good as possible, I prefer PC coloured pictures. All artists should use the same colouring style - flat colouring and cell shading (like in the TV show).

7. light source: we will work with an imaginary light source from above. This light source is not a strong one so please don't draw too dramatic shadows. I may have to change the brightness and contrast of your drawing to fit it into the final picture. If this will be the case, I will write you a note and show you the changed picture before I add it.

8. The pictures must have a transparent or white background so that I can fit them into the group picture easily.

9. The image must not be too small. I'll only accept pictures with a minimum height of 1000px and 150dpi . The images must not be too big. E.g. 3000x3000px with 300dpi would be waaaayyyyy to big ^^

About the relationships

10. I will try to include special relationships between the characters in the picture. If you want to draw a cuddling couple or something, feel free to do so and hand it in as one picture. BUT not every relationship is allowed.
==> For original characters: allowed are couples based on the real life (e.g. my garg-self and the garg-self of my boyfriend) and based on the fanfictions that the characters are originally from (e.g. Ariana and Kirin or Greame and Lucy). Not allowed are relationships that change the original character's story (e.g. Kirin and Lucy).
I also will try my best to show friends or members of the same clan together.
==> Please give me the information I need to do so together with your pic <===

==> If we decide to use the TV show gargoyles: allowed are couples based on the TV-show (e.g. Brodway and Angela) and based on Greg's masterplan (e.g. Brooklyn and Katana (or Sata as she is called in TGS)). Not allowed are Mary Sue thingies (e.g. Brooklyn and me) or relationships not based on Greg's story (e.g. Demona and Hudson) as these are couples that only some people want to see and others may feel disturbed by them. The TV show Gargs belong to all of us equally!


Deadline

I know that most of you are really busy - so am I ^^° - so I'll give you some time. Let's say the pictures should be handed in till June 1st 2007.

How to contact me

If you want to participate or have questions, you can write a comment on this journal, write me a note or write me an e-mail (neomae@stargazerspride.net). Please don't write a comment on my main page, I may not see it!


Exchange of information

==>The forum at my DA userpage: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… <==

I opened a thread for those who are searching someone who draws their characters or for artists who are searching for characters they can draw: The GGPP character thread.
There also is a thread about the use of the TV-show gargoyles if there should be the need to discuss the matter. You also are allowed to open threads there yourself.

I realised that the forum is not used so I give you a second opportunity:

==> The journal itself<==

You can write comments or notes and I will add questions and petitions here:

- :iconpinkgargess: is earching for someone who colours her pictures
- :iconbrooklynx: is searching for someone who draws his characters

==> Polls <==

Definetely essential for important decisions.

Current polls:

- Will we use gargoyles from the TV show, too?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…
- How many characters is each fan allowed to add to the Group Picture Project?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/…

Old polls:
- Should there be a limit on the number of characters that an artist is allowed to submit to GGPP?: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… (voting has ended and a decision was made)

GargGroupPicProject - EDIT 4

Wed Jan 3, 2007, 4:32 AM
  • Listening to: A thing to be protected
header


uhm... Neo comes up with a project o.o Believe me, I'm as surprised as you are^^ However, this is just an idea and I don't know if anyone came up with something like this earlier - if yes then I'll cancel the whole thing. I'll cancel it, too, if there are not enough people who are willing to participate.
(EDIT: We have enough artists to bring this project to life. It will be done! However, we want as many participants as possible so we are happy about every joining artist!)
O.o erm... I guess, first of all I should tell you what this is all about. right? ^^°

What I want us to create

My ultimate goal would be to create a picture showing every Gargoyle character of the fandom - may it be a Garg-self, a character from a fanfiction, from the TV-show itself or anything alike (EDIT: This project is mainly about fan characters. If we should decide to use gargoyles from the TV-show then they should remain the minotity) - in form of a collaboration of all artists of the fandom. I indeed know that this is almost absolutely impossible so the project's goal is to make a picture featuring as many Gargoyles as possible drawn by as many artists as possible .

How we would work

Basically: Every artist is invited to draw one (ore more) picture(s) of a Gargoyle character and then send it to me. I'll put everything together in a huge picture with a nice background, trying to include special relationships between the characters... well, that's all. ^^ However, it's not as simple as it seems. Let's get more detailed and make up some rules:

rules

1.   The character has to be a gargoyle - it may be a gagoyle from the TV-show (EDIT: Wether we will use characters from the TV show or not will be decided in a poll, soon.), from a fanfiction, someone's garg-self or anything alike.
2.   Every character must be on the final picture only once!
==> We have to make sure that no artist draws a character that is already drawn by someone else: Please tell me, which character you want to draw, before you start drawing. I will make a list of all characters that are already drawn, add it to my journal and update it regularly. <==
3.   You can draw your own character or a character created by someone else. If you want to draw someone else's character, ask the original owner for permission first!
4.    Every artist can send me as many pictures as he/she likes. (EDIT: There will be a limit to the number of characters - what this will be exactly will be decided, soon)
==> if you want to draw a specific gargoyle and can't do another character but this character is already drawn by someone who also draws several other characters, you may ask this artist if he/she allows you to draw this character instead <==
5.   The pictures have to be PC coloured. If it is absolutely impossible for an artist to hand in a PC coloured picture then I will make exceptions because I don't want anyone to be excluded from the project. But as the characters should fit together in the final pic as good as possible, I prefer PC coloured pictures. Also I suggest that everyone uses the same colouring style - flat colouring and cell shading (like in the TV show), as it is relatively simple and used often.
(EDIT: light source: we will work with an imaginary light source from above. This light source is not a strong one so please don't draw too dramatic shadows. I may have to change the brightness and contrast of your drawing to fit it into the final picture. If this will be the case, I will write you a note and show you the changed picture before I add it.)
6.   The pictures must have a transparent or white background so that I can fit them into the group picture easily.
7.   The image must not be too small. I'll only accept pictures with a minimum height of 700 pixels. (EDIT: As we want to make a biiiiiig print in the end we need higher quality pictures: 1000px height and 150dpi minimum!)
8.   The images must not be too big. E.g. 3000x3000px with 300dpi would be waaaayyyyy to big ^^
9.   I will try to include special relationships between the characters in the picture. If you want to draw a cuddling couple or something, feel free to do so and hand it in as one picture. BUT not every relationship is allowed.
==> For the TV show Gargoyles: allowed are couples based on the TV-show (e.g. Brodway and Angela) and based on Greg's masterplan (e.g. Brooklyn and Katana (or Sata as she is called in TGS)). Not allowed are Mary Sue thingies (e.g. Brooklyn and me) or relationships not based on Greg's story (e.g. Demona and Hudson) as these are couples that only some people want to see and others may feel disturbed by them. The TV show Gargs belong to all of us equally!
==> For original characters: allowed are couples based on the real life (e.g. my gargself and the gargself of my boyfriend) and based on the fanfictions that the characters are originally from (e.g. Ariana and Kirin or Greame and Lucy). Not allowed are relationships that change the original character's story (e.g. Kirin and Lucy)
I also will try my best to show friends or members of the same clan together.
==> Please give me the information I need to do so together with your pic <===

We'll that's all for now. What do you think?

EDIT 1 (14.12.06):
===============


First of all thank you all for being interested in the project! :hug:
And thank you, :iconmommyspike: , for helping us to spread the word!

Additional image info
- The picture has to be 1000px height with 150dpi minimum
- The character has to be full body
- The pose has to be usable for a group picture, so it will mostly be standing poses. Also we could use some sitting, kneeling or squatting characters for the first row. But there is a limited number of characters in these poses (this number depends on the final number of characters we will have in the pic so I can't tell an exact number at the moment) so if you want to draw such a pose, please tell me in time! Also we could possibly add one or two flying characters - please tell me in time,too, if you'd like to do something like that! If you have any other special pose in mind, please note me and I will tell you, if this could be possible for the pic or not.
- light source: I've seen many cel shaded pictures and many episodes of different TV shows like "Gargoyles" and I realized that mostly the artists don't relate to a specific light source with their shadings. They use some sort of natural shadows like the shadow at the neck under the chin. It's not easy to explain this so if you don't know what I mean, you may have a look at cel shaded pictures by differente  artists or the "Gargoyles" TV show to get a feeling for where the shadows could be. However, if it becomes neccessary to add a specific light source, I will. Please tell me what you think about it! (EDITED, see in the rules section)

=> I opened a thread in my DA forum for those who are searching someone who draws their characters or for artists who are searching for characters they can draw: The GGPP character thread: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… Maybe this could help some of you. <=

Questions that we have to answer
1. Should we use the TV-show Gargoyles, too, or just fan characters?
=> There will be a poll to get a decision when we have more participants.
2. Should there be a limit on the number of characters that an artist is allowed to submit to GGPP?
=> You can find more information about this in the forum: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… You also can add your own thoughts there.
=> Also I made a poll to decide the matter: neomae.deviantart.com/journal/… Please vote, your vote is very important!

EDIT 2 (16.12.06): updated the participant list and the rules to make the recent changes visible better

EDIT 3 (21.12.06): updated the paticipant list
New information about the light source:
Epantiras wrote a comment about it and I really like her ideas, I think that they are very usefull: "I think that we might have a light source from above, not from the left or from the right (because when the light comes from a side, the shadows are influenced from how far the object from the light source is and... too complicated to put all the chars toghether then). Maybe we'd tell people not to make too strong and dramatic shadings as there was a strong light source. BTW I think you should tell people that you might need to change brigthness/contrast of pics in order to make them fit well with the others" I added this to the rules.
Artists who ask for help
- :iconpinkgargess: is earching for someone who colours her pictures
- :iconbrooklynx: is searching for someone who draws his characters
(if you want to be added here please write me a note)

EDIT 4 (3.1.2007): updated the participant list

I wish you all a happy and successfull year 2007 :hug:

I think our journal entry is getting somehow confusing so this will probably be the last update. The next project update will be a new journal entry with the updated rules and the polls to decide wether we use the disney characters or not and how many characters each person is allowed to add to the final picture.

Christmas time again

Hi everyone! :hug:

It's December again and this means that ... it is Christmas time again :dance:
I love to feel this special atmosphere all around! I think people are at least a little different from usual in these weeks - okay, maybe not everyone but most of them. I go for a walk more often now because I feel much more comfortable in our town's streets.
Also I already heard the first Christmas song of this year's Christmas on the readio. It was "Last Christmas" (as usual^^) and I heard it when we went shopping in our local WALMART store. Every year I'm looking forward to hear the first Christmas song and I'm always really excited about which one it will be this time ^^ I'd love to know where you did hear your first Christmas song this year and where!

I wish you a nice Christmas time! Enjoy it as much as you can, it is way too short - especially this year ;)
