Group Info

This is a place to showcase some of the very best Doctor Who (and "Whoniverse")- related artwork on DA. There are some great artists out there who have astoundingly low page views while hacks are becoming superstars, so I'm doing something about it, dammit.

At the moment SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED b/c I've been too busy to administer the place. I do still request art from artists when I run across really exceptional pieces. I'll be sure to post a journal here if things change in the future. :)

THE GUDELINES-
This is a group made to showcase exceptional work by professional and very talented amateur artists.

-It's NOT a group made to collect all the DW art on DA. If you don't think your work is on the level of the other art here- PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT IT. There are plenty of other well-administered sites that will be happy to have you.

-Judging of work is COMPLETELY subjective and up to me and the other contributors- we don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but it's a necessary part of making this group what it is. Also, we will not provide responses as to why works are declined (unless it's something like a wrong folder submission- and even then, probably not). Yes, we're gonna be ruthless- so please consider that before submitting.

-There's no limit on submissions, but please don't "submission spam"- especially if you're a new artist here. There's nothing more depressing for me than having to decline 20 submissions from the same hopeful.

-If a submission is declined or expires- please don't resubmit it- I'll automatically decline it. I check in here meticulously- I promise every submission gets a careful look. "Submission-spamming" only makes me ornery and potentially biased against new work you might submit in the future.

WHAT WE DON'T WANT:
-Photoshop "paintings", filtered screengrabs, etc...
-unfinished work, quick sketches, etc- we're looking for masterpieces, folks...
-Prose/ fanfic (sorry)
-Toy Photography (unless it's of a rrrreally mind-blowing custom)
-Cosplay pics (again, unless it's something mind-blowingly special)

I already posted this on my own page, but I think it bears posting here as well, given its relevance to the group...

So I was at Wizard's Austin Comic Con this last weekend.  Having a great time- meeting cool people and making new friends.  There was a big Doctor Who presence at the Con (any con has Tennants, Bakers, and Smiths- but when ya see a William Hartnell cosplayer you know you're at a Con with a capital "C"). Got to talk to a bunch of great Who and Godzilla fans at my table, though my favorite person had to be the kid who looked at my IRIS ABROAD cover and asked, "Why is that panda drinking beer?" :D

Then a friend comes by my table and looks at my Eleven Doctors pic...

"You know, I've seen other people selling this."

"Yeah, what can ya do?  Some f***er ripped it off and made it into a t-shirt on Australian eBay.  I'm sure they weren't the only one.  It happens.  Perils of fan art, dude."

"No- I mean... I've seen  a guy selling it HERE."

(dramatic pause)

(in a Harrison-Ford-esque growl): "WHERE IS HE?"

I walked over, and sure enough, there was my art, along with a lot of other ripped BBC photos being sold on 11x17 posters.  There were also a lot of other pics by artists I know.  I told the acid-casualty-lookin' ponytailed hippie working the booth that the jig was up, and whipped out some of my originals to show that I was indeed of the artist he was ripping off.  He gave me a "plausible deniability" rap, saying he got them from another seller in California.  I pulled out everything I could find by people I knew and he claimed he would destroy them.  I should have said "leave that to me" and walked off with them, but in the heat of the moment, I kinda blanked (I tend not to be at my cleverest when I'm insanely angry).  The con was going well, and i didn't want to stand around all day dealing with the volunteers resolving some war over five posters.  But I told the guy that I, and the people I told this story to online, would be watching from now on...

That said, I did have the presence of mind to quickly shake the guy down for half of what he claimed to have made on my poster.  I'm sure he lied- but the fact I "made him pay" in any way at all provided a glimmer of satisfaction.  ;)  

So folks, if you see my work for sale by anyone but me, just know that the seller is a creep who deserves your spit, not your dollars.

These are the pics I found being sold (but I'm sure there are others "in the wind"):

The Eleven Doctors - alternate by PaulHanley  Zygon Terror by fresian-cat  Peter Cushing Doctor by jonpinto

Let me know if you guys spot anything else out there.  Get the bastards' names.  Hell, get their pictures if ya got a camera phone on ya. :devil:
