6/16Done the redos
hunting for mac compatible version of this scanner software
WE'RE SO CLOSE!

6/5 Not sure if people are still keeping an eye on this buuut...
Almost done the redos
I'll hopefully have everything scanned and sent soon
The show ended with less than 25 remaining
& I've got a few people saying they're gonna post pics soon
Soyeah
you guys are/will soon be out there
it's almost time to play the waiting game

5/19 If you don't already hate me you're probably gonna~
My (ancient) pc, which had all my (outdated) editing software, and the last few scans I ******** didn't save to my usb, crashed last night
Procrastination will be the death of me, sorry to those who didn't even get to see their art
BUT I'll start working on redos and such once I get things all setup on my laptop
sorrysorrysorrysorrysorrysorrysorrysorry
This won't end in total failure. I SWEAR THAT TO YOU OH READER!


5/12Finals are over
so I can finally get to cutting up the scans for individual pics
& I just realized I left a few of you out of the scan album, because I forgot to save them to my usb (onceagainforgiveme!)
but I've got them now
and everything should be up by tomorrow (they should've but they weren't...sorry again guys)
then we can play the waiting game on facebook pics D:


5/7THEY LOVED IT :'D
I'm happy to say over half of you guys are already in the hands of gallery goers after opening night
making you wait longer would just be cruel
so if you want to spot yourself out
here's the scan album
as the scan numbers go up so do the spot numbers
forgive my shoddy schedule-keeping/presentation
finals will be dead and gone in a few days
and everything will be organized
til then deal with me and enjoy :V

Also the facebook page is up~


5/5 I CAUGHT EM ALL!
Wasn't able to scan all of the pics yesterday (or whore the forums for those last 10, but luckily you guys came to meee crying ) because of a freak biology project accident
I'm scanning the rest tonight and should get them up by saturday night at the latest
The opening's tomorrow night
but I can just sneak the last few into the setup (WHICH LOOKS AWESOME) when noone's looking
SOEXCITEDTHISISACTUALLYWORKINGOUTIPROBABLYJUSTJINXEDMYSELFDAMMIT


5/3 All caught up
drawing/painting people as soon as I list em
working on the set up for the show atm
The art will be placed in handmade envelopes with photocopied directions
I CAN SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD! D:



expect pics tomorrow I lied.


5/1 75 DRAWN/PAINTED!
Halfway there!

I decided to nix the cutoff date and make 150 the cutoff number
I didn't think I could do it
but after yesterday's burst. I'm pretty confident I can make it by the earliest tonight
thank you everyone for your well wishing and participation :}


4/30 I can and may do multiples/couples/whatever for the same user
150 individual users would be ideal
But considering the time I have left
I just need to get 150 avatars/characters :
}
Hi I'm Anti~
For the past 6-7 years gaia has taken up a huge chunk of my time
I've gone from obsession to cynicism to apathy to some unholy lovespawn of the three.
But through it all I've always been intrigued by the community...you guys!

I love people watching
it only gets more exciting online, and on gaia it's something else
where else but gaia can you watch a minotaur with a leisure suit and fairy wings talk about their sister's bat mitzvah with an obviously bored sweet lolita missing limbs?
It's a goldmine of artistic expression
Who wouldn't want to be seen as almost anything they wanted to?
people are missing out.

I'm sure most of you know and enjoy that avatar sites aren't that well known to the "general public"
I can't say I don't like this being my social oasis.
But I've always thought the idea of them was just too good to keep to a few groups
which is why when I was offered my first space in a public gallery show concerning identity, I knew exactly what my subject would be.
With your help I can spread a little more knowledge about sites like gaia, have some fun multitasking for once, and give you guys what might be some of the most unique avatar art out there.
D-tails~

Doing this project will require 150 gaian avatars, a box full of drawing and painting supplies, a shitty old pc with outdated image software, a ton of (recycled) paper, and probably enough caffeine to kill a small child.
All you guys need to provide are the avatars.

I plan to draw and color 150 both by hand and digitally.
They will then be cut out, leaving some white space along the drawing
some will have details hand painted

Considering the number of avatars
art will be small and simple
But by no means halfassed
There is effort in there, even if it doesn't show :V

I have a (kind of very) limited amount of time to produce a decent amount of these
So I'm looking at a cut off date of may 1st.
I know I may not get to 150 with a cutoff date that soon
but being a proud procrastinator, I don't mind settling for a few photocopies

and hey, I might just do this again~
I decided to just go for it
cutoff's at 150 :}

I'm still thinking about how to display these
but I'll have it figured out by May 4th at the latest

The finished piece will be brought to and set up in the gallery on May 5th
The Gallery opening will be May 6th (check below for address/time)

Gallery-goers will be allowed to take avatars from the display and out of the gallery
some type of directions will be included with the avatars or featured by the display telling them to take photos with the avatars and post them in the [project's facebook album] or send them to my email
I'll have photos of every avatar so don't fret if you don't see yours in the album

Sometime in the summer I plan to draw the gallery goers in a similar style as to how I drew you guys
I'll then ask you guys/or other gaians (this step is completely optional) to pose in a photograph with or draw your avatar beside the gallery goer and post it in a second album on the project's facebook page (or pm me/post here if you don't have a facebook)

This will complete the cycle and the project...for then ;D

TL;DR?

This project sounds crazy! I don't envy you the task of drawing 150 gaians in seven days!
It's a nice idea though, I know if someone said community to me gaia would be one of the first places I'd think of.
May I nominate my gentleman scarecrow?
