Ah, so you've found the headquarters of our artist coalition. Capital! Pull up a cardboard box and join us for a spot of tea and a chat. Here, have a mug. Ah, you're lucky, that's our last one with Shanghai on it. Here, have some tea and a scone. There's plenty of space in this tea cupboard for everyone!

Hmm? What is this place, you ask? Well, as I said, this is our headquarters, a bastion of creativity, music, quill, pen, ink and paint...and tea too, yes. What? Well, yes, it's a tea cupboard too, but you see, that's the strategic part - we'll never run out of tea here! What? We're sitting on cardboard boxes? Well, yes, all the better to paint on!

What do we do here? Well, this is where we artists of Alice's Haven come to discuss our arts and techniques....or ok, who am I kidding, we mainly come here to chat and chill ^^. But yes, this is a great place for trading and sharing experiences, ideas, sources of inspiration, techniques, etc.

All in all, welcome. Do make yourself at home. Oh, and don't mind the draft. We keep it for fresh air.

Just a notice to everyone - I'll be busy over the next few days, a little too busy to read every single thread, so if anyone comes across anything that Shiki might frown on then please PM me and let me know. Thanks in advance for the help~

I'll still be around, just not as rigorously vigilant as I should be.

Fixed.

Also added the recent new additions to the directory.

Now, for a conversation starter - what do you find fun about drawing?

Hmm ... Last night I had this idea of organizing an "Exquisite Corpse" comic -- basically, we get a bunch of different artists together, and each one makes a single page, and everyone sees only the previous page. Possibly make it explicitly create.swf themed (since that's how I'd want to participate).

Self-expression. Drawing lets me get lots of the cool/weird/funny things in my head, out of my head. It's a good way to relax, too.

And yourself?

I like to illustrate stuff from my fics. Most of the time, the art is meant to enhance the reading experience of my written works. But when I draw for its own sake and don't subordinate it to my fiction, it's mostly because I have all these ideas in my head that demand to be drawn and best of all, they're fun action poses and battles and things along those lines. The things I can't express with words, I put into pictures. So yes, count me in for drawing for self-expression.

I draw just because it's fun to draw ^^ I never really thought deeply about it or felt I needed a stronger reason XD I guess I'm a rather simple person. I have the most fun when I'm creating new things. Thus why I really enjoy designing new characters XD I suppose it's also an outlet for my creativity/insanity/the-little-voice-in-my-head. I would go so far as to say it's anything as sophisticated and intentional as self-expression, but...

As for a comic we all contribute in...that sounds like fun! Would it be a touhou doujin or perhaps something original?

I was thinking Touhou-doujin. My original idea was for it to be done entirely in create.swf, actually, so it'd have to be something you could do with it.

I just like drawing, I guess... Of course, like everything else I do I have to be in the right mood for it, otherwise I never get anything done, and when I do get something done it's, um, well, y'know... But I'm usually just drawing for myself, so the actual quality doesn't really matter that much, ahah.

...I like the doujin idea, by the way.  At the very least, it'd be fun to try out~

All Artist+ doing a Touhou Doujin, that would be neat. Even selling it in Comiket. With Satsuki Rin as a main character.

Aww, man, Solais, look what you did. You broke the bloody seal. Do you have any idea how much of a hassle that was to put in the first place? >:<

And as thoroughly unrealistic as it is for all the Artists++ to make a compilation doujin, I must confess it is a neat idea.

Sometimes when I'm not satisfied by how something is portrayed by other artists or the world, I get the urge to make my own portrayal. Not as if I can always make a better one, but it's worth trying. If I do get it right (of course, this is hardly an objective point of view), the feeling of accomplishment is amazing. Other times, I draw for fun, simply because I like drawing. I'm a bit disappointed that my drawing habits are quite erratic, though. :/

Yeah, it is impossible isn't it?

But do we care for 'impossible?' No! Go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb! That's how we artists roll! Who do you think we are?! WE'RE....

I wonder why no one here appreciates foreign artists.

Some artists, primarily a few I noted to be Dutch draw pretty well, though not anime, I believe people should be more open to other types of art.

I had an idea.
What if we collaborate and make a music album, sell it at some touhou event and donate the cash to a charity?

That sounds like a wonderful idea. Although you would have to find someone willing to pay for the production. But if you guys get all that squared away ill totally take part.
