This is one of the greatest things that you have added to the site. So easy now to find just what you want or need with just a couple of clicks instead of running all over the place. Thank you all for this and keep up the great and awesome work you all are doing for us.
RE: Writer's Community "coming soon." I'd like to see a place for graphic novels, personally. Also, I'd like a way to invite all these artists here to add illustrations to our writes. I've seen this done elsewhere, with mainstream stories, where the author may illustrate a bit, but also posts artwork done by his/her fans based on the story. It might encourage a lot more attention to the writer's forum/community. How does one go about setting up a forum and/or community? Any feedback welcome.
ATTN: Renderosity team - How does one go about setting up a forum and/or community? I'd like a way to invite all the artists here to add illustrations to our writes in the writer's forum, moderated by Crescent (if Crescent it willing!) I've seen this done elsewhere, with mainstream stories, where the author may illustrate a bit, but also posts artwork done by his/her fans based on the story. It could also work the other way around, where writers create a poem/story inspired by someone's art - (these are similar to challenges). Perhaps the Renderosity folks have some ideas on how to set this up. The "forum" method really isn't best (but it would do in a pinch!) - I'd like to see a seperate site, which would list all poems/stories looking for art, and all art looking for stories (i.e. an index of links, but "internal" to this "community," not spread all through Renderosity. Advertising? This could open up a whole new genre of advertisers for Renderosity - publishers, book promoters, writer's software sales. (forgive the pitch, but I know that communities need sponsors.) If neither of these ideas (using the existing forum or setting up a seperate community) is a viable option, perhaps I could do it via my gallery page or ??? Truly, I'd like to hear from staffers in particular and artists/writers, too. Thanks for your time. ~Tien
3DS Max is coming soon. :) Photoshop is included within the 2D community at this time. Tien, the writers community is coming soon and will be within renderosity. it will have more than just the forum as you know today. we will launch a separate article on this once it is ready. hope you enjoy it. :) i am sure it will develop over time.
I've been checking out art on here for awhile now and just recently started posting. My opinion if it is welcome, would be a split in the 2D art community. There should be a 2D community for computer artists and a 2D community for traditional artists. Or maybe a 2D Photohop community. That's my 2.
Great work and a warm thanks to the opportunity here at renderosity. Tien Avielle proposed some ideas which I think could be of value. Some writings inspire and if the base an image on it it would be great to know by that artist. I propose that the writer section be split. Writing a story, poetry or just a piece of informative writing should be hosted differently. At leat be split as a sub- category so that you know it is a poem, a story or something else.
