Opened by the [Lady of Lore]


Come one and all to the art store! Here we will post art, share new techniques, give helpful hints, aid in overcoming writer's and artist's block, and over all work to improve the skills of all members!

<img:>How do I join?<img:>

The Art Store Members

Please add your name to the list on The Art Store Members. An invitation is not necessary to join but a commitment to bettering the art of Elftown is. You must do something, even if it's only from time to time. We want this place to flourish. If you aren't nice and you just give lousy unhelpful criticism or steal art then the Art Store Sentinel will kick you out, otherwise please enjoy the wonderful artwork. It is my hope that we can encourage one another and make our art even better. ^^

2007-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Hmmm....good point...maybe something with links to elfwood art....I'll see what i can come up with. i'm also always open to suggestions!

2007-08-22 [Yncke]: Well, there's The constructive criticism club for the Elfwood side, and I think there's a page where you can put your drawings to get criticism, but I can't remember the wiki name. :(

2007-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Maybe i'll make a devision of the art store for that and see if the managers of those other wikis would mind if I put thier link in here for others to see and go to. I'll look at how they have things set up and figure out some more particulars. Thanks Yncke ^_^

2007-08-26 [moonscale]: I don't have an Elfwood account, I do have a adeviant art account. I think the most efficient solution would be to put together a system where the location of the gallery wouldn't be as much of an issue and the location of the comments could be arranged to suite each person. 

2007-08-28 [Lady of Lore]: Its a good idea, I was thinking about putting in a spotlight thing for artwork on elfwood. I'd put the link to the work and put my own comments on the page and anyone who wanted to comment on the work could comment on it on Elfwood. I thought that may be a simpler solution. I could also do a similar things for deviant art...

2007-08-28 [moonscale]: I just tried using tube watercolors for the first time yesterday! It was loads of fun. The ones I have now are so much nicer than the old ones I had. I can't wait until school starts, then I'll finally have time to paint. 

2007-08-28 [Yncke]: @[Lady of Lore]: Perhaps you could cooperate with The Elfwood selections?

2007-08-28 [Lady of Lore]: Sure ^_^ I'll see who's in charge of it and see what works for us to team up a bit.

2007-08-29 [jsun]: Hi guys, I just created a usefull tool for artists that I think some of you could be interested in. I've only posted it on my website so far but with expressed interest, I'm sure i could incorporate it into elftown. If you like it, spread the word. 
It's action poses to use as reference for your art.

2007-08-29 [Yncke]: @[Lady of Lore]: I think that's [iippo] you'll be needing. :)
@[jsun]: That looks very useful. *bookmarks*

2007-08-29 [iippo]: Yes! I'd be happy to have some kind of co-op with you Lady of Lore! :) Is The Elfwood Selections anything like what you had in mind? If it is, you're welcome to just use it as it is (I'll take of the pw), or if you had something else in mind, it could be worked into it?

2007-08-29 [jsun]: Thanks Yncke ;D I should be able to get some more up not too long from now. Would really enjoy outside models too... you know... someone else as well.  Check out Dynamic Poses More people should be able to participate now. And Lady of Lore, if you want to exchange links, I'll be happy to do so

2007-08-29 [Lady of Lore]: Sure ^_^ All of these are great! Iippo, I haven't had a chance to take a look at The Elfwood Selections but I am very excited to. Once I get a bit of time today or tomorrow I will let you know ^_^.
jsun, that sounds great ^_^! I'll be sure to put the link here in The Art Store as soon as I get a little bit of time (got a test today but after it I should be able to work on somethings here ^^)

2007-09-27 [Lady of Lore]: New competition now open!!!!!

2007-10-11 [Lady of Lore]: Yay the galleries have finally all been phased through to the new page, give me a shout if you got lost in the move!

2007-10-11 [Lady of Lore]: Two new divisions of the store, News and References for Artists are up.

2008-06-03 [Lady of Lore]: Whew! I gotta get rolling here again!

2008-08-01 [Lady of Lore]: The lessons section has its new class starting today and the topic is Feathers and Wings! Come take a look!

2008-09-01 [Linn Scarlett]: It looks good :)

2008-10-08 [Lady of Lore]: The next art lesson section is up! yay! Everyone is welcome to go back and do the other lessons if they'd like! It's good practice!

2008-10-08 [Linn Scarlett]: oeh nice!
