Thank you to everyone that participated in the poll!
The group will remain open, but with the proposed changes. The feedback given will also be discussed in a post in the future, along with further details on the upcoming changes to the group.
If you didn't get a chance to do the poll, but still want to leave feedback, feel free to leave a comment here or send the group a note.
Otherwise, the group will be on a short hiatus as things get reworked and archived. No art will be removed.
2018/Jan/04 Just a reminder, this poll closes in less than 3 days.
here. Hope everyone's doing well or carrying on through the end of the year.
As of this point in time, it is uncertain if the group will remain open or active after the current challenge. Things have changed, and unless there's a change in the group, I personally do not find myself capable of keeping it alive.
The change I'm proposing is to do away with the current system of challenges, archive the current art to its own folder, and start anew to foster character design as a general whole. Concepts, character references, character development, adoptables and so on, including redesigns. The submission process would be more generalized to, "as long as it meets DeviantArt's submission standards", or at the very least, a clear, visible scan or picture of your drawing.
Should there be any challenge or theme, it would be on a monthly time basis, with no restrictions so long as the title and/or description was intended for said purpose.
That's all I have at this time.
I've created a poll, which can be answered anonymously: www.surveymonkey.com/r/2FFC3G3
I will keep the poll open until January 6, 2017
, which it will close by midnight -8 UTC
Otherwise, thank you for those of you that have looked to this group in some way over the time it's been here. Be safe however you celebrate the new year.
