    One way of attracting more attention to the GW could simply be to focus more on Total War-related themes. Also, although restarting the Illustrator might prove a thankless and ultimately wasteful endeavour (keeping it running was an energy-draining sinkhole sadly, given the lack of resources to regularly create content), you might want to have some project going that has a place on the frontpage at regular intervals.

    I think there is definitely a lot of talent on this site, graphically speaking. There are modellers and texture makers for mods, on top of the signature/editing folk. If we could get more people to show their work here, then that would translate to more views, and so forth. However, do keep in mind that on many other game forums the fan art usually goes into an all inclusive subforum with both videos, screenshots, and 2D original art.

    Thanks for your input Aanker. I really appreciate.

    Regarding the futur themes, some of them will be in relation with some TW games or mods, like Medieval Japan (relating to TW Shogun series) or Charlemagne (relating to Radious unit pack released not far long ago). We're open to any suggestion. So, if you have any idea in mind, feel free to post them.

    Regarding the Illustrator, I know how time and energy consumming it can be. It won't be published on regular basis at the start (or not on short basis anyway): may be 1 every 3 months. That would give us time to work on it without too much pressure hopefully. About its possible content, I haven't made my mind yet but it would probably be slightly different to what it was originally (for the tutorial and free resource parts at least). Also, we might publish it here, in the GW, in order to attract more people.

    Good point about modellers, texturers and movie makers. I agree that it's something to consider too. About movie makers, I'm quite surprised actually to not have seen any around in this forum but I might have missed him.

    Also m_1512 suggested recently to get more involved with other Content Staffs in some common projects like f.e. illustrating AAR's or TotW, or promotional graphic work for mods. That's also something to look into.

    I just want to go step by step to not get scattered and so, to not be able to give a good service (if you see my meaning).
    I'd say I'm prospecting ideas now but hope to deliver something into concrete soon.

    I also had an idea for a collaboration of sorts with the writers' forum, which is a little bit more active to my knowledge. Basically, you would have the GW produce a piece of graphic, which the writing forum would then have to narrate through a story, and then they would answer in turn by sending us a story which we would illustrate. And you could toss stuff back and forth like that. I think greater interconnectivity between the various artistic forums might create a more active community that peeks into all aspects of TWC creativity.

    I think that's actually a great idea
    I have forwarded it to the appropriate forum (crediting you of course). Let's see what's coming back

    The Illustrator was a massive time sink, forcing us to create content instead of featuring it.
    Aanker has good ideas, there's all kinds of talent on this site and if the GW could go out further and include not only "graphics", that would be great.

    As for the medal, I was merely joking. When I get time to enter, after this exam period, should I win, there will be no new medal to conquer!

    I have submitted Aanker's idea in the Senior Content Staff forum and have received a positive feedback from Hitai de Bodemloze and Alwyn.
    I have now to set things up with Hitai in order to get a place where we can work on that topic . I'll post the link here, in the GW. When done, anyone willing to help/participate in its organization, will be welcome

    Regarding the GW comp, you can join in when ever you want. Despite your reputation and your past work (which are excellent btw), I'm not afraid to compete with you and the medal won't be an easy trophy to win
    More seriously, I'm really glad to see some "old" members coming back to this place. If we can also get new people, that will be great.

    About the Illlustrator, I'm aware of that and that's why I really take my time about it.

    True. I suggested using the Blog feature now available to accomplish what the Illustrator was originally intended to do. I know Lift has been posting a blog concerning the GW Comp results and announcements. Maybe another member of the art staff could develop the "Illustrator" blog? I thought at one time I had someone working on that? Maybe we should also consider posting announcements in this forum when new blogs are released once it is up and going of course. I've been out of touch for a while so I guess that plan changed. I really need to read up on the threads in the Art Staff forum sorry I will shut up now and go back to my corner. lol

    EDIT: Or maybe that was my plan and I didn't fully voice it. lol sorry again. I really intend to shutup now.

    I leave the submission thread for the GW competition still open for a few more hours to be fair with the US (time difference). So basically, if you guys, want to post or to modify your submissions, you still have about 6-7 hours to do so

    I can't access what I think is the submission page of the new monthly GC thread because I don't have enough permissions?

    You can access the voting page in case you want to vote.
    You can't access the submissions page because once the voting starts no more submission are accepted.
    (Would be my best guess)

    That's correct. As soon as the submission period ends, the thread is closed and moved in our archives and the poll is set up. Only the art staff has access to the archives
