Since this is my first time putting a group together, the rules may be changed or added if things become out of control or to improve the group so that everyone has fun! :D * REQUIREMENTS * -- Some type of drawing instrument or any computer software! -- No experience necessary! :D * RULES * -- Must be drawn by hand or computer. -- Follow the theme topic for the month. -- The comic can be for anyone at any skill level!

Yay it worked! :D

Hi everybody, I was trying to add some new stuff to the site like the Twitter widget for DP and the chatroom, and the twitter widget was successfully added! 8D I'm still working some things out so if the site gets crazy, don't worry, it's just me making some changes!

Announcement! [Please Read] :3

- So for the past week, mappy41 and I have been planning for our first newsletter issue that will be posted on February 1st! We have some really cool ideas for it already, and as time goes on, we hope our issues get better and better and have more volunteers!

Now a little help from you guys. Since our issue is going to have a Valentines day theme, we are accepting Valentines day related drawings. So if you would like to contribute, feel free to make a valentines day card, or drawings to add to our issues. You can draw as many as you would like! Just pm your drawings to me here on SJ. The deadline is January 28th 12:00am (GMT-5) So I can get the pics ready for our issues :3

ALSO! Every month in our issues we will be mentioning everyone's birthdays, so go comment with your birthdate HERE

Thank you everyone, and don't forget to check out and sign up in our Drawing Party! Forums! The link is at the top of the page :3

Rebuilding [Please Read!]

- So someone decided to be a (insert nasty word here) and deleted all the pages. The reason? *shrugs* Was that person insulted in some way? Was it jealousy? But to go as far as delete everyone's work? And changing the name of a chapter to "This comic sucks and is owned by nazis". Come on grow up and get over yourself >.>

But anyway, I gave everyone the permission to manage comics so that everyone could switch their comic to another chapter themselves but now I took away that option from everyone since apparently that also gave everyone the permission to delete chapters as well. XP

It's really a shame that all the work everyone went through. The only thing we can do now is rebuild this site and continue where we left off. I do have all of the drawings I posted so far so I'll put them up in a bit.


On a good note! Me and mappy were talking about some changes yesterday and start posting a newsletter every month. More details on that later! And also the forums are up and now if you want to make any suggestions to make the site better, share ideas or give suggestions for the next theme. I will say the theme has been chosen already for next month as requested by someone (but I can't tell yet! O_~)

Hopefully this hasn't discouraged anyone too much and get can get things rolling again... because me and mappy want to make this the best collab ever! :D


Edit: We're now in the process of re-uploading all of the drawings and rebuilding the site, so feel free to repost your drawings! Of course, any questions feel free to send me a message :)

Darn spammers! Working on it

Hopefully you guys will be able to read this... but I'm working on getting rid of the nasty spam. >.> I'm not able to access the website or any of the pages myself, but I can still get into the site management. I posted in the forums to notify the admin and I'm just waiting to hear from him. Worse comes to worse, I may have to delete one of the pages and re-upload it, but I'll wait a little while before I do that because I don't want to delete the rest of the comments... just the offensive spammy ones >< So hopefully it'll be taken care of soon.

Just to let everyone know!

Just to let you guys know, I moved some of the drawings to the "Random Drawings" section, so in case you're wondering where they went. I changed some of the rules on the categories so they would be a little more clear so everyone knows where to post their drawings. Because now that there are more categories, it can be a bit confusing.

Below is the list of categories and what can be posted in each one:

- Introduce Yourself: This is pretty self explanatory.
- Fun Stuff: This is for more interactive stuff, where everyone can contribute. The Party Room is a great example :3
- Comics: Post your own comics here and promote yourselves! One image per comic please.
- Fanart for Webcomics: I changed the name so that everyone knows that only fanart for webcomics go in here. No fanart for tv shows, books, etc. please.
- Critiques: If you have a drawing you would like critiqued, post it here.
- Tutorials: The "How to..." stuff goes here.
- Random Drawings: All other drawings (sketches, fanart, practice drawings, etc) go here.




For any other questions send me, DanaBoBana a message/comment, and also some more questions have been added to the FAQ section.


Thanks everyone! :D

Wow! :D [Please Read!]

Hi everyone!

This collab has only been up for three weeks and already so many have joined! Thank you guys! This has been a lot of fun so far, and it's really cool seeing so many different styles. I actually didn't think things would go this well, since this is my first doing something like this. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling that everyone is so involved and supportive. :*) You guys are awesome!

With that said, there are a lot of great ideas floating around, which one of them mappy41 came up with, The Party Room. I created a new category for ideas like that called "Fun Stuff" that the Party Room is now listed under. So if you're looking for something to get involved with while waiting for the next theme, it will help to keep everyone entertained. :)

Also I have created a new forum for this collab. I figured it would be a great place to suggest new ideas for activities for the "Fun Stuff" category, and suggest ideas for the next month and I think freeforums.org has polls so that everyone can vote. I'm still setting it up, but as soon as it's better organized, I'll post the link.

And I added the rest of you who have sent me your info for the "Meet the Artists" section. At least, I think that I'm caught up. ^^ If there's anyone I missed, let me know.. and check for accuracy too just in case I got anything wrong ^_^;;

I think that's about all, let me know what you guys think!

First News Post!

Thank you everyone who has taken the interest in joining! This is my first group, so I hope that you guys will bear with me and have fun!

Since we are moving towards the end of July, and many things to work on around the site, I will have the new topic posted August 1st (or 2nd cause I'm going away for a few days, so I may be back on the 2nd ><)

But until then, I'm going to see if anyone has suggestions, and maybe we'll have a poll and see what idea everyone agrees on. I'm thinking it'll be something about summer. If you're going to be an author, you will have your own bio info on the "Meet the Artists!" custom page. And I'm thinking maybe we can draw introductions for ourselves too.

Also I'm planning to change the site banners, any one who would like to contribute a drawing, I'll see if I can add them in. :)

Feel free to send me a message if you have any suggestions to improve the site or any questions!
