Greets cats and kittens!
I'd just like to inform you all that we have a new folder in our gallery specifically for art pieces that are part of commissions, art trades, and requests. I was never quite sure if any of those qualified as "original", but for the sake of the members here I've taken it into consideration and made a special folder for it.
That's about all I wanted to say for now. I've graduated from school and won't be starting college until next January, so hopefully I can focus more on the group. I apologize if the club's been a little lifeless lately, I'll do my best as the founder to get it up and going again.
Hello there, and welcome to the Hopelandic Club!
Here we explore the creativity of the human mind through our art, and hope to inspire others to push the limits of their imagination. We love and support the ability of the individual, as well as each other, and motivate others to find their own creativity and ability.
The Hopelandic Club is also a place for people who are inspired by anything or anyone, such as Tim Burton, Lauren Faust, Jhonen Vasquez, Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and many other creative minds.
So if you have not heard of the band, Sigur Ros, you may be wondering what "hopelandic" is. Well "hopelandic" is the English translation of "vonlenska", and it is a non-literal language created by the band that mainly focuses on the sound of language without the use of any real lyrics (similar to the use of scat-singing in jazz music). It was first used in their album Von, which translated into English means "hope".
Because Sigur Ros' hopelandic songs have no lyrics, they can be interpreted by the listener as anything they imagine it to be. That is why this group is called the Hopelandic Club, because it motivates others to use their imagination and search their own creativity.
Founder: "I, as an artist, enjoy and encourage everyone to share their art and creative skills! Feel free to share with the world what you are truly capable of! All is welcome."
Please no hate art. This club is meant to "love and support the ability of the individual, as well as each other", so let's not attempt to bring other members down.
Please no used-bases or traced-art. This club encourages art created by your own imagination, so please share your own original art. We will not judge you if you have a "fan character", but try and show others art that you created yourself. However, if you created a base or lineart for others to use, and it is your own creation, then that is acceptable.
Please nothing too vulgar. Originality and creativity are welcome, but keep in mind that there could be young or sensitive members of the club. If you want to feature your artwork in the group's gallery, and it contains any acts of violence, sexual acts, frontal nudity, or overall sensitive material, notify the Founder first and remember to censor it.
Please submit to the correct folders.Each folder has it's own description, so you can determine which folder to correctly submit to.
If you ever have an idea for a contest, feel free to make a suggestion to the club founder, Strabius.
Art featured in the group's icon belong to (in order):
RebelionRoja, Aineska-Siwel, MisoNoodles, and Rinmeothichca.
Enjoy yourself, have a wonderful day, love life, and remember that we should all be alive.
