One last update for the evening...

I added the most recent A_B entries to memories, and hope to add any further entries to their proper category thereafter. This will hopefully be a good reference for anyone and everyone in the future. If I missed any vital entries in the past, comment here.

tania and I have decided on co-mods for the community! Check the info in a few moments... If anyone else is still interested, send either one of us an email or comment here. Thanks guys!

If you were not chosen the position of mod, that does not mean we will not consider you in the future. We believe that we now have enough to moderate the community. When there is an opening announced, we will check out other applications.

Sorry for not mentioning this earlier, we had to temporarily disconnect the computer.

I dislike signatures that stand out.
I seriously dislike signatues that stand out, but stray over the art, kinda like a bad stained shirt.
I get think 'hidden signatures' are cool at first, but I get tweeked about it when I think that it was intentional, which most of the time, it is.

Now, here's what I love. If you can fit your signature into the scene, i can very happily fly with that. Aka: The setting is in or near a bar/street/store, and the name of the store is the name of the artist.
Now that's my kick: when signatures are part with the art instead of abstracting it with "why is there a black scribbly thing beneath me while I'm flying?" Signatures, well practically anything that don't belong 'in-scene', look ugly. If you can't find a way to 'properly' place your scene and characters, I won't accept/like it.

I'm not sure what you mean here.. It's usually going to be intentional when a signature is added at all, so I don't really understand what you mean..

Anyway, in one of my most recent pictures, I did sort of a "slime" border around the character herself. Towards the upper left, I managed to sneak my two initials, D.A., into the slime itself and still make it look natural. You wouldn't notice it was there at all unless I were to point it out to you, I can guarantee it, since it's just not obvious in the least. I know because I asked around, and every single person couldn't find the initials I asked them to find before I showed them.

Would you mind something like that? In those cases, you wouldn't even realize the work had been signed most of the time, if the artist didn't bother to tell you.

Lately though, I've started having to put plain small text signatures in some out of the way corner of my artwork, because I actually had people asking me to do so so they wouldn't have to write down credit somewhere (they preferred giving credit; so they wouldn't look suspicious, I guess). I didn't use to sign my work at ALL, but enough people nagged me to do it that I started to, and it's slowly becoming a habit.
