We’ll be hosting Show and Tell on Sunday, February 10th and Sunday, February 24th. Show and Tell participation starts at 7pm GMT (11am PST) and usually has a soft cut off at 2 hours (depending on participation).
Show and Tell is a moderated live session which gives the opportunity to give and receive constructive criticism with your fellow guild mates on hand painted WiP as well as finished pieces. Participation is open to all members across all skill levels. We meet in the #tavern-room channel for posting work, paintovers, etc. We also take advantage of the Tavern voice channel to be able to give direct feedback. Voice chat is not required, but it is heavily encouraged (as it keeps the pace moving)
If you have any questions, feel free to tag or message a @Guild Associate or me directly @Nickelbeer (Michael). We look forward to seeing you there.
I hope you all had a wonderful break, some time to yourself, time with family, and a renewed drive to be a better you in the year 2019!
It’s always a pleasure to see new and familiar faces in the guild. And as of today we’ve grown to 896 members! Our resources have also grown, but they are kinda all over the internet. So I’m working on updating our guild site! Current version – https://handpaintersguild.com/
And I need some thing from you guys, if you can help!
If you have done an interview or process article, ping me with a link in the #lounge! @Azaraen I want to gather all that awesome information for people to find in a convenient hub page! It will link out to where those things are hosted.
I am excited to show you the site someday! I’m sure it will be a great place for artists interested in advancing their experience with handpainting, with room for scaling to other related subjects! For now, stay patient and keep up the great work everybody! Thank you!!
Now that things are calming down from the holidays, we have an important announcement…
Show and Tell Returns
Show and Tell is a moderated live session which gives the opportunity to give and receive constructive criticism with your fellow guild mates on hand painted WiP as well as finished pieces. Participation is open to all members across all skill levels.
We meet in the #tavern-room channel for posting work, paintovers, etc. We also take advantage of the Tavern voice channel to be able to give direct feedback. Voice chat is not required, but it is heavily encouraged (as it keeps the pace moving)
We’ll be hosting Show and Tell on the 2nd and 4th Sunday every month starting in January. If there is a heavy interest in the return of this event, we may adjust the frequency accordingly. Show and Tell participation starts at 7pm GMT and usually has a soft cut off at 2 hours (depending on participation).
The first show and tell will take place on Sunday, January 13th at 7pm GMT.
If you have any questions, feel free to tag or message a @Guild Associate or me directly @Nickelbeer (Michael) . We look forward to the return of this event in the new year.
So now all things realistic and PBR will go into this room; as they both use somewhat similar lighting/rendering techniques. The handpainted style involves different techniques where you paint/bake all the lighting information into the diffuse with little to no scene lighting/rendering.
So with those differences in mind, we wanted to give them each other own places for people to use and get more appropriate feedback on their work.
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend everyone!
Join me in welcoming @YBourykina (Katia) as a Guild Associate!!
She has been a great inspiration for us as artists, but also a very welcoming guild member! She is an amazing artist who has shared tons of her knowledge online (https://www.artstation.com/ybourykina/blog as one of those places), and has been a voice of support here in the guild.
We are happy to have her join us and continue to be a positive influence in the community!
Hey everybody! Time has gone by quickly, and we have reached our 3rd year as a guild together! Can you believe it!? We started as a tiny guild on Slack with only a small group. I’m so honored to be in this community with all you wonderful people. Thank you so much for being here and sharing your passion.
Notable Guild Events:
We have had a total of 2 IRL meetups at GDC and BlizzCon (which we will be doing again this year).
We had MANY workshops to help guild members level up!
We have grown to 750 members & 5 Reil Bots!
And if you are interested in these workshops, you can head over to #the-workshop channel and participate in this month’s challenge.
In our current way to innovate the server, we’re ready to bring forth the new shape of the HPG!
From now on, the HPG will be known as the ‘Starter Edition’. This will be the starter content for every artist ! We want to recognize your value as artists and the time you invest in here, and we will be converting the Server in a Live Service.
We are also introducing a Server Currency, the HPoints!! You can purchase those points with a small fee and unlock many benefits. But let’s discover the new editions!
Hey guildies! We’ve updated our tutorial collection page to a new site! http://bit.ly/HP_Guild_Tuts It is in Beta because it is not publicly available or searchable yet. The zeef owners need to approve it first. But feel free to share it with friends and to your social networks!
It is now:
Easier to go thru the tutorials.
You can suggest tutorial links that will be reviewed and most likely approved! Click the plus symbol on the page to do that.
If you hover your cursor over the links, it will reveal: Price / Image or Video Format / Programs Used.
