TEAM CHOW SIGN UP THREADDESCRIPTION
Okay boys and girls!
I've had this rolling around in my head for a little while now, and with Reverie coming up in Dallas, I thought this would be a good time to implement it.
We all know the competitive nature of CHOW, but I'd like to try out something different. This time we're going to focus on team work.
This will be a one-month contest. It will run alongside the regular chows, so if you aren't interested in participating, you don't have to feel left out of the regular activity, and if you'd like to do both, you have plenty of time.
This is going to be a beta test, as we've never done anything like this before, so the rules aren't going to be as set in stone as the usual chow's - it's probably going to take some tweaking to get things right. So please, if you have an idea or suggestion about how to make this run smoothly, please post it here.
In the meantime, this is how it's going to run:
- Please use this thread to sign up and find a team. If you would rather be assigned a team rather than find your own, please post so here, and I will make up teams out of those that ask. I will not add to teams already created, just out of those without a team.
-Teams will consist of 2-4 people. How this works is up to you, and how many people you want to work with. You may not play by yourself, you must at least have a partner. If there is a group of 5-6 people that wish to participate together, you may PM me with why you want such a large group and I may let it pass.
-Sign up will take place over the next week. You can still sign up later in the contest, but this will give you a week to coordinate with your team members and brainstorm for the coming contest. In order to sign up, each member must post in this thread that they wish to participate. When those members decide to form a group, ONE member must make a new post with each of the group member's names and the group name. (ie. The Hound Dogs, or similarily dumb things like that).
-When the teams are submitted, I will edit the following post with all the teams. If I happen to miss your team in the thread, just send either me or Poshspice a gentle PM and we will correct the error.
-In ONE WEEK I will announce the rest of the contest. Aka, you will know what you're going to draw. I will however, tell you the basic idea so that you have time to brainstorm:
- You will get SIX CHARACTERS that your team must design. The characters will not have a genre or time period associated with them.
- You will have to work together to come up with an over-all design, theme, genre and time period for the project. You may start on this now. But you will not know the exact characters you have to create until next week.
That's it, Folks. Like I said, this is a Beta test, so if you have any comments, questions or concerns please post them here. Along with the character guides, in a week I will also publish the more specific rules for submitting your work at the end of the contest.
That's it! Good luck!

Yep sounds pretty cool. I'm totally up for teaming up with people (the bigger the team the more fun it'll be, right?) so PM me if you want to collaborate with this n00b

I might be down. I can't really get the whole digital thing going, but I can get some solid pencil concepts and give us some sweet promotion PM me if you think I qualify
sounds like an interesting project though I'd have difficulty commiting regularly. Especially as the team would be spread apart and only communicate via the internet?
There would also be issues with who would buddy up with you? you may not be able to get into a group. Perhaps if you were to group people in different groups each task? this ensures all participants get to be part of the team.
While I think working in collaboration with others is a great idea but logistics means that it would add extra stressors.
Just my thoughts
Fine, I'm signing up too.
Open Canvas, meebo, MIRC, AIM, etc... might be a neccessity on this one, as well as PMs, threads on here, just a few suggestions?
Hey, it could be a great learning experience ... I'm in!
"Creativity emerges only when the imagination is given the freedom it deserves."
However, please don't make individual threads here in chow. You're welcome to go open a group sketchbook thread in the sketchbook section, but only official chow thread should be posted in this sub forum, otherwise it will get really messy really fast. :]
Wow, this does sound fun. Would there be a chance to maybe sign up later, my skill set isn't high enough atm where I would benefit a team very much. Plus, I have no idea what those things Matte_Art recommended are! ::goes to look up::
I think on the opposite end of the spectrum this would get me not only in a group dynamic (think studio feel) with the motivation to work harder!
Count me in.
YIM would probably be the most reliable way to keep communication going for me. Or of course, eMail.
Er, not sure who I would team with, though. Random teams? Or anybody think they could use me in their team?
over n out!

My Conceptarts.org work thread - needs updating soon!
And remember kids! I am not flesh, nor stone or smoke... I am as I am, I am thedarkcloak. BREAK YO SELF, FOO!
sounds pretty cool
im in xD
That sounds like a great idea! Art can be a rather lonely endeavour at times. I don't know if I'll be able to find teammates since I'm still relatively new... But, anyone out there, if you've seen my stuff and think I could help out, I'm all for it; PM me!
I'll keep an eye out as well...
Really great idea......I would like to participate........but I don't really know if anyone will want me in their team....as my skills are not exactly the greatest right now...............but well.......who knows....
Daestwen and Poshspice: maybe make bigger teams with 3 or 4 artists with great skills and add 1 or 2 not so good like me?? it would not implicate so much a group and could make the begginers to learn from this good artists.... It would be kind of a trainee program....
It's just an idea......and I would totaly understand if I'm out for now....
I like this idea a lot, count me in!
Seems like the hardest part might be getting teams formed I'd suggest people group up with similiar interests maybe or styles? Or maybe even by disciplines... like someone might be good at line art, someone else coloring, another backgrounds, etc? I dunno, that might be a dumb approach... but might make it a bit more streamlined.
I like the sound of this new CHOW-thingy. I'd love to enter if someone thinks I'll be a good member of the team that is....Pm me if you do think so...Or else, daestwen, well just put me in a team with members that'll fit around my level or lower. That way I could teach and learn something from my team mates in one leap.
Beware....this'll be my first CHOW....
