    I have been thinking this for a while and since we have the awesome Radicons for custom figures and such I think the Fan Artists should have a name of their own.

    I was thinking up names and I think this one fit pretty well and using the term Graphic I think it fits all kinds of art we see on this board.

    Graphics:

    (from Greek γραφικός; see -graphy) are visual presentations on some surface, such as a wall, canvas, computer screen, paper, or stone to brand, inform, illustrate, or entertain. Examples are photographs, drawings, Line Art, graphs, diagrams, typography, numbers, symbols, geometric designs, maps, engineering drawings, or other images. Graphics often combine text, illustration, and color. Graphic design may consist of the deliberate selection, creation, or arrangement of typography alone, as in a brochure, flier, poster, web site, or book without any other element. Clarity or effective communication may be the objective, association with other cultural elements may be sought, or merely, the creation of a distinctive style.


    I am hoping we can make the Fan Arts board more of a community between all of the wonderful artists we have on TFW2005.com.

    We can have Artist of the Month (a la Radicons) and so on and whatnot.


    Please let me know what you think.

    Oooo...I like this idea. And I agree with Pepsiman98, Graphicons should have a faction symbol or a logo of some sort.

    I really don't like it would look good yellow

    I heard from a mod, in a thread here, there was something being planned for the FanArt section, several months ago. And before that, about over year ago, when I proposed an idea for a monthly art jam, which I was told was already in the works. :)
