I figure no forum is quite complete without a thread for people to trade art.

Here's how it works- you can:

* Request a picture.
* Say that you're available to draw a picture.
* Organise a 'trade' i.e. you draw a picture for somebody else and they draw one for you.

Then people can contact each other based on posts here to figure out what they want and how to do it.

I am not sure what the policy on accepting money for services is here, but if it is not disallowed I'm thinking maybe there's room for that here too i.e. commissions.

RULES- because I need to cover my butt:

* You cannot request material that is classified as obscene or otherwise illegal.
* You should not post personal details that can identify you here.
* You may not infringe copyright- all credit must be given where it is due.

If embedding the art here, remember that images are capped to 600px width!

Okay, I'll kick off: I'm available to draw a quick sketch for somebody. First come first serve, and you must tell me what you want!

Hey, I was wondering if you could draw a sketch of this armatar, but then like how it's just a head, if you could sketch like the whole person like this, that would be cool, thanks!

Just to make things absolutely clear:

No gore, no nudity, no stolen artwork.

^^ Of course man! Haha, that would be some weird picture! Quick question, does the picture that you request have to be original. Or are you talking about the final outcome?

Just tell me what you want done with the photo. (remove head, change background, make it look like X, etc.)

Hmmm, okay, change the head of my cat. Do what you please with it, but maybe make it comical, hehe. Ignore the drawings around her nose haha. Anyone can do it, so just let me know! :D

Regarding pictures based on other existing works or characters, this falls to the copyright conditions that the person whose intellectual property it is has imposed. It's important that you're fully aware of them before you do anything that just might result in "BAWWW YOU STOLED MY STUFF I SUE j00 NAO D:

for this 'art trade' do we have to trade things, or is it just a 'request it then I'll draw it' sort of thing?

any way, If it's possible I'd like to see a picture with some guy playing video games or watching tv while someone behind them is yelling at him. i can't really trade anything past MS paint sorta thing, but i have plans for a tablet in the future...

Requests are cool too.

On that note, jwalshjr, I haven't forgotten about your request! I'm just a bit snowed under ;..;
