I want to give a thank-you to everyone who decided to come over and check us out. I've known you personally for a while, or I've at least been a fan of your art, and it's exciting to think we may be working together in the future. In case you've missed it, here's a link to our main site: www.foundation-hub.org/
Take a look around!
If you want to do more than look, there are four steps of involvement that you, or anyone interested in Foundation, can engage in:
1. If you want to limit your interactions with Foundation to this deviantART group, you're welcome to. Feel free to submit any and all art you desire to our gallery! It doesn't have to be Guild Wars 2 related
2. Join our forums! They're small now, but growing daily. I'm known for my honest so I will admit that there are, currently, only 13 people on the forums--Foundation is a new site, and we've only begun to advertise our presence in the last few days. However, I can assure you the forums will grow! You can upload any of the art you desire there once again--it doesn't have to be Guild Wars 2 related. You'll also get to chat with several cool people about your work, or about anything at all. You can find the forums here: www.foundation-hub.org/forums/…
3. Join the staff. This is where you would have the greatest audience for your work. Foundation is a crossover collective--that means that all of the writers try to include cameos of other characters, we all work together, and we all edit together. We would hope that, if you choose this option, you would be wiling to illustrate our stories. (And, on the other side of that coin, if you create something Guild Wars related, we'll write you an accompanying story!) However, this is not required--we'll simply host your art on our site. To join the staff, there is an application process, but it's not rigorous. We ask a portfolio--your deviantART gallery will suffice!--a general direction or idea you see yourself going with the site (do you want to illustrate our stories once in a while? Do you just want to post your art there?), and a short biography about yourself. At the moment, we're receiving over 100 hits to the website every day, we're google-ranked--and like I said earlier, we've barely begun to advertise that the site is live. The numbers will climb, and soon.
If this sounds appealing to you, the application process is found in more in-depth description here: www.foundation-hub.org/join-th…
. If you don't want to bother with all that reading, we have a shortcut. Simply send a message expressing interest in joining the staff to me, on deviantART or through my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). I checks my messages every day!
4. Join our guild! If you're a gamer, and plan on playing Guild Wars 2 upon release, Foundation has a casual roleplaying aspect we'll develop in-game
Well, I think that's everything! Thanks for showing interest in the project, and I hope to see you all on the forums and the site!
