Welcome to Gaia! ::

<CENTER>User Image</CENTER>

FREE AVATAR ART FOR NEWBIES is a thread dedicated to welcoming newbies to Gaia and helping them get into the flow of things. Newbies are welcome to hang out here regularly. We will answer all your questions and reward polite newbies with free avatar art and the random item or bit of gold.

<center>User Image</center>

Avatar art can be very expensive. People make thousands off selling their art to those willing to pay the price, and many Gaians are. As a reward for newbies who know how to handle themselves on Gaia and contribute to the betterment of the site, artists from all over have volunteered to give free art to newbies--art that would usually cost hundreds of gold that newbies simply do not have.

I'll keep the rules simple. Please follow all the rules and play nice.

1 You MUST be a n00b. I'm leaving the definition of "newbie" up to the individual artists. wink

2 You MUST NOT PM an artist unless they say it's okay. wink

3 Become a regular. If you post on page 1450 and an artist gets on at page 1672, s/he's not gonna browse through past pages looking for newbies. You're best bet is to visit often so artists have more of a chance to see you. wink

4 No cybering and no sexually explicit material or RPing. This is a PG-13 Forum. wink

5 Follow all of Gaia's Rules and Guidelines. Click on the link and read them if you are not familiar with them. If you see anyone who is in violation of Gaia's rules, please PM either the person, or me, so that we can get the situation fixed and prevent further harm to the thread, others, and the offenders. wink

6 No spamming, no posts that stretch the page, and no excessive quoting, please. wink

Articubone Clears Things Up

Alright, I'd like to take advantage of this being the second post by telling all those newbies who didn't read/understand the first post:

The point of this thread is to talk. Not bump, not spam, not come in, say "Draw me" then leave immediately, but TALK. If an artist thinks you're worthy (ie, you've returned to this post over a few days, you try to use proper spelling, you've made friends with all the regulars) THEN we may decide to give you an artwork. In fact, there are so few newbies around, if you stay for a week and have DECENT UNDERSTANDABLE conversations, it's ALMOST a guarantee that you'll get artwork.

Get it? 3nodding
Wow. That's very nice of you.

Oo, I see. ^^

This is my favorite piece, made it from scratch. I draw everything with my mouse. ^_^ http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/6396175/
<CENTER>User Image</CENTER>

Anyone who is not a n00b but wants art anyway and wouldn't mind supporting the artists who are very generously giving their time and skill to a Worthy Cause, I doubt the artists would mind if you PMed them with an offer in gold for some nice art. ^_^

Also, if anyone out there would like to offer up their skills for the sake of the Worthy Cause, then feel free to PM me with your offer, and I will add you to my list of artists (or benefactors, like Lovableteekerz). Any and all participation would be greatly appreciated by all of us here at "Free Art For N00BS" and all the Worthy N00bs out there! blaugh

<B>All new updates are in bold.</B>
If you know of something good to come from this thread and it has not been added to the list already, PM me so I can get it up there!

Update:

I have started re-doing the layout, so please bare with the changes until they are all done. And remember! If anyone has any ideas to make this thread more user friendly, PM me your thoughts. School's out in a week, so I'll probably get around to updating the layout, etc by then if I havn't yet.

^^ Yep. XD I draw for all my friends. For free, of course. 3nodding

Because I'm not that good. sweatdrop
<CENTER><B>Blacklist</B></CENTER>

Well, guys, I didn't want to, but it seems that we need one. If you break the rules and I find out about it, *thwap* up your name goes on the Blacklist. And if your name's on the Blacklist, you cannot get gold, items, or art from the artist and you are declared ineligible for any contests. In other words, If your name's up here, we don't like you no more! Go away!
