Please be aware the criteria for entering and graduating from the beginners (FXB) competition in the FX arena has been changed.In order to graduate from beginners (FXB)one must now win 3 Gold medals/trophies in Advanced or Beginner, in any combination.Players who have graduated under the old system, but have not yet won 3 Beginner or Advanced Gold are now free to enter beginner (FXB) competitions again.
So, why do we reference? I mean, especially in beginners where the rules are a little looser, why would I link that awesome photo I drew? Well, it comes down to the fact that we are not copy machines. I am not Kinko’s and you are not Xerox. Do we allow more referencing in beginner’s, of course, because working off of some other piece of art allows greenhorns to work on technique. Things like hands are hard. Sometimes you just need to close ref a hand to get it right. However, here in the advanced competitions, we make our own art. We don’t subscribe to the idea that a photo redrawn in digital pen is an entirely new work. We are not saying that your work cannot be derivative; just that if you ascribe to a medal in the Worth1000 Advanced Illustration arena, then the art must be your own. Does this mean an original composition will be DQ’d if you draw (not TRACE) a hand in the same position? Hell no. Hands are hard! Ref’s are good! It just means that a piece of art that started life as a photo is not a NEW piece of art if you copy it into a different medium. If you need ref’s use them! Lorem and I both do! It is the combination of ref’s into a new work of art that marks an image as advanced.Now, beginners is a whole other ball game. We allow “Close Referencing” because sometimes you really do need to concentrate on learning how to draw something that is already there. That’s why we REQUIRE references to be linked. We’ve been lax on this recently, but that will be chaging with the new year, and with the addition of our new Admin: Oberdarts62 . If you do not link your reference in Beginners, you will be DQ’d. If you think that after a combined decade and a half, Lorem and I can’t spot a trace, you are crazysauceier than Miss Cyrus. If you "totes swear" that no, really, you can draw that well, then you may be DQ’d for entering a contest you were over qualified for. Fair warning: Tracing / Cheating / Questionable Ref’s time is over.Please remember that this holiday season and links your ref’s accordingly. Not doing so may end in a DQ.
...and your rank is on your stats. Check it.
