I've found through experience, whether in art or real life, that the best way to learn from a person is to work along side them.
Collaborating with a fellow artist can open vast portals to a person, full of new ideas and techniques.
Many friendships may also be developed in the process.
I've noticed a rising trend in collaborations within the gallery, so the purpose of this thread is to create a structured outlet for this process.
It's pretty simple. Just use the form below.
[b]Program[/b]: (PS/Gimp, Flash, Illustrator, Cinema 4D, etc.)
[b]Medium[/b]: (Visual Art, Animation, Games, Music, Hand Drawn, etc.)
[b]Collaboration type[/b]: (half and half, piece by piece, etc.)
[b]Amount of people[/b]: (How many people will be involved?)
[b]Order[/b]: (Who goes first? If there are multiple people, what's the order?)
[b]Editable File[/b]: (Upload and post this file if you have already started on the collaboration. This is needed for a collaboration.
File types may vary by program. For example: .psd for Gimp and PS, .xcf for Gimp, .ai for Adobe Illustrator, .fla for Flash, .c4d for Cinema 4D, etc.)
[b]Style[/b]: (Optional. May only be used for tags and large pieces. This states what style you will be comfortable with or what you would prefer.)
A quick explanation on collaboration types:
-A half and half collaboration is when one artist starts the piece, works on it until that have reached a "half-way" mark, and then hands it off to another person to finish.
-A piece by piece is much like a half and half collaboration, but it is not finished in just two turns. The work is done little by little, the piece being passed back and forth, or between many people, until it is finished. This is one of the only ways to do a collaboration between three or more people.
---If you have any other ways to do a collab, PM me the specifics and I will add it to this list.
How to do a Hand Drawn collab: (Written by Suuichi)
-One of the two artists begins the piece. On half the page or whatever medium is being used, the artist draws whatever it is they so desire, making sure that it can be continued on the other half by the other artist.
-The first artist can upload, his/her work, either by scanning or photographing, and send it to the other artist. Here there are a number of options on how to continue the piece. What I suggest is that the second artist print out the first half. From the printed paper, the second artist can draw their half of the piece, or trace the first half, and continue on from there.
-The second artist then uploads their half, again by either scanning or photographing. One of the two can crop the two drawings together into one flowing piece.
---Another option would be a hand drawn/digital collaboration. In this situation, the first artist would draw and upload the piece, sending it to a digital artist. The digital artist could then color or other wise enhance the original drawing.
A few places where you can upload the editable files for collabs:
