Artist of the Moment

KARISMIC

Visit my shop View my bio

My name is Alicia and I have been doing art since 2011. I have been a member of Gasr since shortly after it started and I really enjoy the time I have spent here and all the wonderful people I have met. I started making art because its something I always enjoyed but never felt I was good at it. At least not with pencil and paper. I have found digital art to be comforting and I enjoy making art to share with people and I hope everyone enjoys what I make just as much as I do. I am a 35 year old stay at home mom with 2 kids. Art gives me relief from a 5 year old and an almost 14 year old. Thank you for reading and I hope that me being the artist of the moment will bring me some new buyers and friends!

e.g. International womens day
international mens day
Black history month events
Eid
Hanukkah
Mental health week
I mean I get we can't have an event all the time but I feel they are limited to
new year, valentines, easter, halloween and Christmas. Maybe we could expand to involve some other important events

@Victimised
AYYYYYYY BLESSINGS FROM THE ARABIAN SIDEE~
I would love to celebrate Eid with Gasr!! I really hope this happens!

i feel like i should make a separate topic for this but...

i think that we should make gasr a bit more artist friendly, in the way that payment before starting working on a piece should be more common
too many buyers rely on the fact that if they wont like the art in the end, the artist can just sell it as a premade, so the buyer asks for art anyway out of curiosity ...

i believe this would be all up to the artists' themselves. we can't force all artists to take payment first as a lot may not feel comfortable with this or other reasons.
maybe we can make a payment guide for artists though, talking about ways they can take payments, different payment options, ways to protect yourself from scam. this can help current artists that are confused or considering changing their payment methods (unless we already have one >.> we can also edit it a bit if it's dated)

if you have tips and stuff about this, feel free to pm me and we can see what we can do about this
Sat Mar 18, 2017 1:09 pm
@jaz thanks for trying to help!
i know that artists can pick their method of payment, but buyers on this site are a bit eeeehhhhh when it comes to upfront payment, and this discourages new artists from coming on this site...
not to mention the mess in the request area...useres disappearing for weeks without paying, or simply ignoring everything

the problem is that i dont think that docking a health bar to those that perpetuate the problem is a solution (because there arent many artists that take into consideration a buyers health bar when accepting a request, ) , nor adding more rules that will make this site so much different from the other art sites than it already is...
but im sure that the upcoming update will make the site less alien to newcomers, so ill wait a bit more for the new rules and ill come back on this subject (since i dont like pointing out problems without trying myself to find a solution   )

@Nox
ah i see. sorry ;o; i must have misinterpreted your first message.
but i understand now and i do feel the importance of it.

hopefully the stuff the mod team has in plan can help out with problemslike this. if it doesn't seem to, we can definitely work on something that the community feels would help better.
Sat Mar 25, 2017 2:41 pm
another quick question...
do the mods verify if the artists have been paid before deleting an old topic in the request area?
Sat Mar 25, 2017 9:05 pm
No, we don't. That's between you and the artist. If you don't get paid and the person takes/uses the artwork, you should report them to a moderator.

The threads aren't permanently deleted. They're moved to the basket which is basically a giant trash can for GASR. We save the info for about a year just in case there are complications.

Who is responsible for the OT section? I find it quite bothersome that people often forget to post their drawing in the "draw the person above you" thread. (Or forget to draw the person above you) I wanted to know if there are any consequences for people who don't.
Mon Apr 10, 2017 10:36 am
@Aneta As per the announcement posts / rules in the first of the DTPAY thread. I'd assume you'd just have contact the admins Mar or Mattie or possibly the Global moderators.

As indicated, the thread was monitored by Krist, Bedlam, Mar, and Mattie. But Krist and Bedlam have stepped down from the staff team and I'm not sure if any of the other staff members have stepped up to look over that thread.

However, there are consequences for "excessive" misses in the DTPAY thread. (i.e. people could be abusing it to get free art without actually contributing, etc). So if you notice someone who "forgets" quite often. I'd recommend messaging the admin staff about it so they can look into it.

@Aneta

We're on it now. And yes, there are consequences for excessive misses. If someone misses to post their drawing for too many times, they will eventually get banned from the thread and even from the OT itself in some cases.

So this isn't really a suggestion to improve the forum or anything like that, I just kind of think it's something that people need to be reminded of. I'm not sure if a lot of people have heard about it? But about a month ago an animator who worked on Naruto and Bleach, Kazunori Mizuno, passed away due to overworking. Maybe just reminders telling people to take breaks every now and then? Something of that sort. A lot of people glorify the "always work, never take any sort of break" kind of thing.

I think that it would be a really good idea to be able to choose if we want to receive emails for replies in specific shops like our own. That would be really helpful since if you are following a lot of shops you might get lost in the notifications.

Damn, it's actually one of my favorites. :( It was a great idea tho.

It's okay. We might have some plans to spruce the place up a little bit instead of reverting to the same boring header as before.
