    The Artisans
    "Art in Unity" ⎋

    What is/are "The Artisans?"
    An artisan is a craftsman. We take what we have, and we create something new with our own hands. We are a group of artist no matter what field it may be in. "The Artisans" is a group that I originally created with a friend, a dancer. It is a group to hone all who dabble in the arts, and this is the Maplemation branch of this group, to those who take part in the animation, the spriting or anything more in Maplemation.

    What is our goal?
    Our goal is to help growing artists improve, and show off their skills. We want to help people grow in the field they want, and be able to do it with a group of people with a similar goal. We strive to help the newcomers and the people who have been around for too long without recognition. Everyone is an artisan, we all make things with our own hands, and that's what helps people improve. We all have potential, and that's what we try to bring forth.

    Interesting group. I think it still lacks detail here such as how you intent to help people with their goals [like via what method] but i guess you still figure all that out eventually when you join. I'm glad to see cool helpful communities like this become a thing. c: GL

    It is an animation group, but not only an animation group. You can definitely join as an animator alone, that's no problem, I'm just explaining that there's a wider branch to all of this. This faction is just the Maplemation branch of it.

    Inside Maplemation, the group is for animators, spriters etc.

    Outside of Maplemation, we're not just a group of friends but a group of artists specialized in dance, music, drawing, animating, filming etc. anything at all.

    As of right now the faction and I have come to the decision that you are not good enough yet to be in a fighter position. This does not mean you don't have a chance yet though, we do welcome you to our Skype group etc. to improve on your skills and maybe try again for the fighter position though.

    Quick update on how things will work within the faction.

    I'm well aware of this faction being a faction to help others, but that doesn't mean that the fighters can't be our best.

    Soon, when we hit the cap on the amount of fighters, there will be a way to become a fighter. We are going to adapt the old Endless techniques of challenging and beating a current fighter for the fighter position. This will induce our current fighters to continue to get better to prevent this from happening, and it will also increase the friendly competition between our general members and the fighters.

    The fighters being challenge will be in charge of what the deadlines, themes, handicaps etc. will be. The fighter may not say no either, unless heavy personal reasons come to play involving school work and others. Laziness/Unwillingness does not matter, if that is the reason, then the challenge will continue.

    Fighters may also lose their position if unable to complete an animation in a faction war due to non-personal reasons such as laziness and unwillingness.

    This will be applied once the fighter positions are full. However, the leader may not be challenge and have his position taken from him. SORRY. :^ )

    Thanks!

    More updates to come.

    --More Updates--
    (Sorry for the like triple post)

    Laughter and Aerocobe have been accepted into The Artisans as new fighters. This brings our fighter slots to 7 filled and 3 available! This means 3 more fighters before the position competition starts! Attempt to claim your spot now before you have to work for it!

    Also, flash menu will be in the making, this basic text layout will still be available to those who do not have computers to withstand .swf menus, so do not fret!

    Regarding faction wars, we have begun talking about them as a faction, and aim to challenge within the next 2 - 3 months possibly, looking at Omen and Perpetual specifically at the moment. Please note, to all fighters and future fighters, this means we have to get off our butts and practice, and for the war, unfinished animations are not acceptable.

    daxflame100 and AliceInWonderland added to the general members list.
