View Full Version : FAQ: Can I Create My Own Sketchbook or Anatomy Thread?
04 April 2006, 01:29 AM
For those of you wondering whether or not you may create your own Sketchbook or Anatomy Thread, the answer is YES! :)
I only ask that you stick to the naming convention of calling your thread:
2D Artists should call their threads:
Sketchbook Thread of *Your Name*
Anatomy Thread of *Your Name*
3D Artists may choose instead to call their threads:
Anatomy Thread of *Your Name*
Figurative Thread of *Your Name*
Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Threads are about independent study with advice and feedback from the community and myself as needed.
You are welcome to post work to your own Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Thread that you have posted elsewhere on the forums.
You need not ask permission to create your own Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Thread.
I encourage everyone who creates a Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Thread to regularly comment on others' threads as well! :)
EDIT: PLEASE NOTE!
While the new naming convention for most is "Sketchbook Thread of *name*" this does not mean that work posted to these threads should be non~figurative.
What Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Threads may contain:
Anything Figurative. This includes 2D/3D:
-figurative armor / clothing
What Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Threads may not contain:
Anything Non~Figurative. This includes 2D/3D:
-guns / weapons etc. if not attached to a figure
It's not as though I'm going to mind if these things are occasionally posted ~ however, the focus here on the Artistic Anatomy and Figurative Art Forum should remain just that. :)

By the way, I encourage everyone who creates their own Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Thread to please comment on others' Anatomy Threads as well. It shouldn't just be me replying, the purpose of these threads is to learn from one another. :)
I regularly update this Master List of Personal Sketchbook Threads:
Sketchbook / Anatomy / Figurative Threads of Individual Users (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=2817397&postcount=12)
Try checking out the thread of someone new on a daily / weekly basis, and leave your comments, constructive critique, and advice.
Looking forward to seeing your posts! :)

Due to request, I've changed the naming convention for Personal Threads from "Anatomy Thread of *Name*" to "Sketchbook Thread of *Name*" (except for those who wanted their thread titles to remain unchanged). Please bear with me as I make these changes.
Poll ~ Naming Convention for Personal Anatomy Threads (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=376684)
For those that do not wish to have the names of their threads changed (those who voted to keep the naming convention as is) I won't change the names of their threads.
The forum code allows only a forum leader to change the thread title as it appears on the forum once the thread is created. This is not something that I can change / have control over, so for better or worse, I'm the person who can change thread titles for this forum, so please understand that it takes a bit of time to change all of the names. :)
If I have changed the name of your thread and you did not want it to be changed, please just post a note here and I will be happy to change it back.
For those of you wondering why there is a naming convention at all, it is because it helps me to keep things organized, and also, making sure that people include their usernames as a part of their thread title ensures that people who search for your work by your username can find it. :)
