    ~ The Curio Collective ~
    </span>

    In a drive for activity, publicity and to expose the talented individuals of the GameRenders community, we are pleased to announce the creation of 'The Curio Collective'. This DeviantArt account ( http://curiocollective.deviantart.com/ ) will allow artists from all areas to participate in increasing not only the popularity of the GameRenders website, but also the individual artist. The following areas of expertise are appreciated;

    - Large Art
    - Tags (Will be a global tag wall once a week or fortnightly)
    - Stock Photos
    - Fractals
    - C4D and 3D resources
    - Tutorials



    Each Submission will link back to the artist's original deviation and their DA account, if they do not have that submission on their account then it will link only to their account. A link to GameRenders will also be in each description as well as a disclaimer asking the viewer not to favourite the piece but instead the original deviation (unless not present). An example of how this will all work is now present on the account, here; http://curiocollective.deviantart.com/art/...okeNL-131616314

    Now, every member of The Curio Collective will be displayed in the current journal on the page. The application process will not be insanely stringent though we are looking for quality works in order to cement GRs appearence as a talented website. If you wish to apply, send me a PM with links to your work and the areas you wish to cover; once you are a member, you will then PM me any work you wish to be placed within the pack (Note that stock packs etc. should have at least 10 images and not contain copyrighted material).

    If an artist does not submit work over an elongated period they will then be warned and given time to correct this, if this itself fails then they will be removed.

    <span style="color:#FFFF00">So...get submitting!

    Daecu's now in the group.

    I'm wanting to submit like, every 2 days at least (if only initially) just to really give this a push and a decent chance. If you've got any decent quality work in any category we can work with it, stock packs can be combined etc.

    On here.
    PSD's aren't generally useful unfortunately due to stock/image restrictions. Art stays as PNG/JPG images.
    However there's always GR Resource Packs that need them.

    To clarify. In order to join the group all you need to do is PM me examples of your work and the area you'd be part off, to my account here on GR "Broken".
    If the work is good enough, be it photos, C4Ds, LPs, anything, then you join the group and submissions will be made through it. :)

    It's always worth a shot, even if you have just some resources that you've made, C4Ds, stock photos, anything, we can do a bit of sprucing up too.

    CurioCollective recently submitted it's third works, now got a slightly more varied portfolio;

    An LP
    A tutorial
    A C4D pack

    Ditch the sigs, IMO. But I suppose this is for everyone, not just the minority of people that do LPs.

    Well, I'm definetely avoiding a focus on sigs, will take any LP of quality but sigs etc. are restricted to a tag wall every one or two weeks.
