Alright guys,

I've been hearing whispers about a new TG War coming up and I've also heard a fair amount of opposition. I don't know who all is responsible or organizing it, but I would like to talk to them and maybe discuss some ideas to help. Though, the issue is that I don't know who these people are.

On one hand, I'm kind of excited for it. It's been years since the first one and it was certainly fun in it's own right, but despite several attempts to reignite or recreate it, it pretty much remained dead. I understand where the thought is coming from this time around though, it's not so much beating a dead horse but rather attempting to unite the community that seems to have been a bit fractured and some really good artists are getting left out in the dust despite some really good work.

Recently :iconquarma: put out a journal discussing the old 'beating a dead horse' argument in his journal.

TG War should probably not be a thing again.Hey, so a few years ago... *quick dA search* ...actually, six years ago rounding down, there was some bullshit involving a conversation with me and ComX-1 where some sort of typo was made or something and we jokingly decided to develop it into a full TG War! It was just us having fun and drawing us attacking each other with TFs and TGs and stuff, it was neat. And then it got progressively less neat. In fact on some objective level it probably became terrible. And ever since then I've seen a slight recurring notion that hey the TG War should come back! Why not? It was just silly fun for all! Well, it was silly fun for some, and for a lot of others it was just a massive clusterfuck that we all got fed up with. Since I'm seeing another push to make this happen, I feel like as the main founder of the concept (from what I remember ComX just rolled with my idea, sorry if I got that wrong) I should probably say something. Mainly, why exactly the TG War failed and why it's going to

And despite being a veteran from two old community wars and a proponent to the newest iteration, I have t agree with a few of his points. For instance, there was definitely a boon of people who weren't really doing much outside of filling space, filling up a roster that just made the whole thing feel bloated. Also, as Quarma alluded to a bit, the TG War concept as it was then, probably will not work again. That is to say, having people just lobbing TG Grenades at each other could be goofy, crazy hijinks but it lacks a certain longevity. If we were to pull together a new community based event, it may have to pull away from that formula. And while I agree with Quarma's "Let everyone do whatever they want" I also kind of see the value of limited admission (at least at first to help test the system).

As for my personal views on it, I kind of like the idea of an RPG styled setting, like DnD or Pathfinder. Building a world for people to set their pieces while having some Gamemasters act as moderators to help regulate the story as it develops and plan events that people can participate in even if they don't contribute art. However, despite my world-building word vomit talk of a 7 Kingdom/Faction story in a world split between Magic and Technology, there comes one big issue that I am having trouble working passed. Where does the concept of TG fit into such a world? For example, why would the switching of someone's gender or transforming someone by some means be a good driving story element? Motivation and Agency becomes a bit of a hurdle for something like this and lack of these elements has ended many a community game before it gets a chance to take off. This is one of the things I'd like to work on.

So with the question, "should there be another TG War?" being asked now, I think the honest answer is no. At least not in the same style it had been in the past. My vote is for a bit more regulation and communication between a group of people who can agree to run the game and are willing to take the little bit of extra time to help build a world, a story, and a cohesion.

I'd like to step up and help with any development I can, and honestly the ideas are already starting to build up and I may try to use them for something else later.

To call out some people I'd like to talk to about this:

First rule I propose: NO DRAMA.

Anyhoo, that's a lot to take in. Hit me up.

Sigil of the Horned Wolf by Wrenzephyr2
Sigil of the Horned Wolf
This is my first (or most recent) attempt at vector work and I figured I'd apply it to a family crest.

Since I was young, I was told about how my maternal grandmother's family was descended from wolves. It was an interesting story, nothing fancy nor was it riddled with talk of 'destiny' or 'greatness' but instead simply stated we were related to wolves. My grandmother, who taught me to read, would notice me reading about wolves and she would point to the pictures and say "that's your cousin" and smile as my young eyes lit up in excitement.

My father, a Hartman, didn't have such legends. It was merely understood that Hart meant deer/stag and man meant Hunter, so I was also tied to that creature. I vowed from a young age, despite there being hunters on my mom's side of the family, that I would never shoot or knowingly bring harm to a deer or wolf, nor use any part of them as decoration (such as fur or mounted trophy). Both of these people passed away when I was younger, my father when I was 4, my grandma when I was 17. In honor of the two people and two families I come from, I have adopted this creature as my personal symbol. Representing the loyalty and cunning of the wolf and the wisdom and strength of heart from a deer. 

I'd love to make more sigils.
I plan to use this as my symbol and fursona (maybe)

Vox
Alright so this was a quick character design I did for my Star Wars campaign I wanted to run. This is Vox, a stealth assassin and right hand to the Crime Lord Sirius.

Just a quick post to prove I'm alive

Alright folks,

Now you may know me as a bit of a deviant, or perv, and I should note that I wear this ironic title with pride (being Asexual and all) but there are times when the fetish community surprises me with something amazing.

(paycomic) Interludes 4 by blackshirtboy

Big shocker, BlackShirtBoy put out an amazing comic centralized on transformation, his fourth issue of Interludes. Now, as to be expected, the bits inside are filled with some major TF goodies, and some nice little moments of the busty variety. However, these tantalizing elements aren't the reason I'm making this plug. I'm making it because beneath the raunch and boobs, there are some really amazing moments of sequential art storytelling. The first story alone was made up so well, creating something that feels like it's straight out of Colonial folklore that I had to check to see if it already existed, and while I found some shadows of similarities splattered across time and space, this bit of Ichabod wordsmithing is unique and original.

if you haven't picked up the other installments of Interludes, you really should consider it, but at the very least, pick this one up. It is worth its weight in gold.

...okay that doesn't sound like much since its a PDF but all the same, you should buy it and enjoy!

happy readings,

Jo

looking through your art and profile, you've made me kind of want to be more open about this fetish of mine lol

I just wish i was more open with it earlier. stupid catholic upbringing O_o 

I need to go draw some TF stuff now. And not try to alter my style so it's harder to find me. unless that's what other TF artists do. 

Terrified of industry prospects if i'm actually open about this...

I'm open to the industry, and I'm terrified of it all the time.
you just have to keep column a and b separate, no shared art in portfolio and gallery, no using of real name, and characters on your profile are not allowed in your day to day professional works.

HOWEVER, there are some who make it work. One of the head art directors from LILO and Stitch is here on dA and does a menagerie of hotties

True, so industry professionals know about you here? Or I might have misunderstood. That said for sure that's the goal. I just even fear style similarities haha. I just sketch something up in a toony style i never use. then i feel bad for not spending more time on it but hey. (my life is odd. O_o)

And that makes me feel kind of better but a bit afraid if i'm not that successful it's because I didn't do it right haha. does blacklisting occur? 

What is their profile if you don't mind my asking?
