a new community

shall be formed. soon. I'm looking for input on how it should work.

I've put no info there, but I've reserved the name: 100sketches

In the vein of 100poems and 100stories.

I think I want more rules, or ... simply to be stricter about stuff, than 100poems. like, no falling behind by more than ... a week? "winners" will be commemorated in the "about". images must be smaller than... 100k? 200k? all images larger than 50k must be behind an lj-cut? sketches may be of anything, must belong to you, continue to belong to you, should have been done for the contest (don't post old sketches). The idea is to get better at drawing. Preferably realism or surrealism (else what are you practicing?) [[is that necessary??]]

Is anyone out there interested in joining? If so, what would _you_ like it to be?

I'm in - but I worry at the mechanics of it, specifically where would the images be held? I'm pretty sure I could host my own stuff, maybe a bit more but I have other projects on the horizon that could impact that (translation: if I had stuff that wasn't mine and I needed the space then "poof").

Just blue skying here, but I'd be willing to chip in on a dedicated site (I think just for storing the images, we can let the structure and connectivity of livejournal handle the rest). I just used a place that costs like 5 bucks a month (100mb).

I guess that opens the possibility of a disgruntled member blowing everything up, etc. Might be ways around that?

As for style, I don't think it wise to limit anything at the inception of the thing.

Great idea!

If the host allows scripting, it would be a 'coding opportunity' :)

uh huh. :)

even worse, a 'moderating opportunity'. Bleah. ;)

It has been started. I will scan and post a non-realism sketch shortly. The rules are posted on the community. They are short. Simple. And will be followed generously, I presume.

I'd love to join. :) I'll have to check back again though when I'm more coherant (drugged up due to sickness so I'm only vaguely understanding the rules at the moment, heh.) I do like the idea of having to come up with something small and original per week. Keeps my fingers stretchied.

It has begun. Daily as opposed to weekly, though I'd consider stages of a more complicated piece relevant. And I gave a week's wiggle-room in posting, so la. I expect that we'll only need to loosely follow the guidelines anyway.
