Chat & Forum Week

Hey, gang!

This week's exciting range of assorted shenanigans is accompanied by tomorrow's Sketchmatch; the art challenge will be hosted in #CommunityRelations (full details below) by puddlefisher (me) and Thiefoworld, who has kindly offered to co-host. He'll no doubt maintain order amongst the inevitable silliness too - for which I have no koalafications in doing.

Despite prizes being up for grabs, tomorrow's event is more an opportunity for you to jump into our chat network & to engage with it alongside fellow deviants in friendly and relatively safe setting (watch out for the otters, is all I'm saying). If you've participated in these events before, you'll know that suggestions for themes during the events are improvised and outrageous! It's one of the few occasions when compromise is a good thing; so, brainstorms that generate more than one likeable theme with words like "otter" or "aristocrat" fuse for a healthy aristotter newborn (thanks, PoshOctopus).



Sketchmatch Challenge
(multiple prompts)


12pm PST; 8pm UTC

10-15 minute slots for each prompt - with 15-30 minute breaks in-between

3 month Premium Memberships


Just 'cause.

To clarify:
"prompts" are keywords provided/suggested for/by participants from which to derive each drawing & interpretation.
"slots" are time-frames allowing for the drawings to be done.
"breaks" you, silly! :B


The Sketchmatch is likely to sustain for at least a 1 hour duration - but it's a good idea to expect some flexibility here, depending on a bunch of things. For instance, if participants are having a blast then we'll wrap up later than expected. The main objective is to have fun drawing curious oddities (or sensible ones) which come up as themes while familiarizing ourselves with chat in the meantime. The times are variables which are very much up for change and may even be negotiable between hosts and the participants present - accordingly. This is especially true if there are lots of traditional artists who use scanners compared to digital artists who may not need time to spend on equivalent technicalities. For more general info, check out Thiefoworld's past events which largely correspond to the structure being used here:

And like all the events this week, you'll have a chance to obtain a Scuzzle piece which will be linked to you at some point throughout the chat event - you'll need to watch out for it. More details on the Scuzzle contest here:

Be there, or be circle.

Just a question, can anyone contribute to the gallery descriptions? Or is it just for the group staff.

Hi! Is it possible for take a real life photograph (that you didn't take) and edit it? (if you give credit to the original!) I'm not really sure on the rules of what you can or cannot post :c

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, can you look at my first deviant?

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post it, and I will take it down if it violates the rules. Sorry, I'm just a little confused on the guide lines here ;n;

Thank you so much in advance!
