MAX is a monthly art exchange focused on original characters.
How the Rounds Work
Every month, I'll make a journal post for the upcoming round.
Comment on the journal if you wish to join it, along with a link to your story or character list.
Before the round starts, I'll edit the journal to show who is matched up to who.
Upload your artwork to the appropriate folder. Kindly have month and year of the round in the submissions title (E.G., "July 2017").
An original character. (E.G., not Simba, Tony Stark, etc.)
A visual reference online of your character in a SFW location. A deviantART submission, journal post, personal website, etc.
Able to complete a drawing within three weeks.
If you participated in a previous round, you must have that submission finished before joining another round.
Guidelines for Submissions
It must be recognizable as the artist's character.
Full body or most of the body. Not just a bust portrait!
Color is recommended, unless it's really well-shaded in black and white.
Backgrounds are not required, but they sure do make the picture look better.
Submissions that appear to have little effort put into them will be rejected.
Keep it fun!
Artists of all ranges may end up drawing one of your characters. Don't be upset if that person's a beginner. We're all on different levels.
After people are matched up randomly, I may make adjustments so that everyone is exchanging with somebody new.
Be sure to respect the character you're going to draw, and its creator. If you're not sure the creator would approve of the art you're making, be sure to ask him or her.
Put a solid amount of effort into the art you make. Don't wait until the last minute and then whip out some quick simple pencil sketch. Make something you can be proud of. You'll want the same from whoever is giving you art.
