- The NEW Academy of Sprite/Pixel Art -
Credit to Phantasm.Angel for this cool idea!
If you want to know where the old thread is for any reason, it's here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99981).

Welcome to the Academy of Sprite/Pixel Art, where you can learn and teach all about sprite/pixel art!

Group sessions will also start running as of December 11th, and they can be found in the non-sticky area of the Sprite Art section. Each thread will be about a different type of spriting, and will likely run for a short span of time before the next thread is created, and a new topic is formed. Teachers and apprentices can find out more about group sessions once I get the thread up. xD

Rules

All standard PE2K rules apply.
No spamming, flaming or cursing. You know the consequences.
Use this thread for discussion, questions and to sign up.
You can EITHER be a teacher OR an apprentice. You can't be both. If you're struggling to decide which one, PM a mod to get their opinion.
Teachers may have a limit of 5 apprentices at one time.
Apprentices may have one teacher only at one time.
Please use the forms to sign up.

What is it?
The Academy of Sprite/Pixel Art is a special program run for those who wish to learn about sprite and pixel art, and those who desire to teach others. A great way to improve your pixel skills is through one-on-one tutoring from appropriate members who are able to pass on their knowledge of sprite and pixel art, and through our teacher/apprentice system, this will be possible for anyone who wants to either learn or teach.

Teachers:
These are the people that are going to help the apprentices learn. Remember that 'teacher' is simply a label, and does not give you the authority to control your apprentices in any unnecessary way. This is a place of learning and to work with others. Constant communication is vital. This includes letting an apprentice know if you are going to be absent for a period of time, and letting them know when you would like tasks completed. Make sure you give constant critique and comments; be fair with your critiquing and ensure that you point out the good things as well as what needs improvement. Your job is to teach and inform, and watch them grow in their own way and at their own pace. Do not become a teacher if you are not frequently active. Please use the forms to sign up.

Apprentices:
Apprentices are expected to listen to their teachers in terms of comments and critique, and following their recommendations is definitely a smart thing to do. You are not obliged to obey them if they are rude or anything like that, and they certainly aren't allowed to control you. Don't be afraid to ask your teacher for any kind of help during an "assignment", because they are there to help you. An apprentice only means that you would like to learn more, whether it be five different things, or just one. Remember, teachers are allowed to reject an apprentice for any reason (such as wanting only to teach two, for instance), and this only means you should find another teacher. Please use the forms to sign up.

Think of it as a partnership. :]

Apprentice: Well, what can I learn?
You can request to learn whatever you like in order to improve on those certain qualities you're unsure about, or simply would like to learn more of. You will fill out a form and will be added to the list of members who wish to learn as opposed to teach, and a link to your post will be added so that your teacher will know what you want to learn. The teachers will subsequently fill out a similar form mentioning what they can and will teach.

Apprentice: How can I get a teacher?
Teachers and apprentices can request one another and it's pretty much up to you who you want as your teacher or apprentice. You can either request a teacher/apprentice in this thread or discuss it with them elsewhere; it doesn't matter. Once you have a teacher, it is advised that you double check what you want to learn and you can discuss how the teaching will work.

Teacher: How many apprentices can I have?
It is recommended that you have 3-5 apprentices, and 5 is the limit. Having more that 5 will be too much of a handful and it will be unnecessary anyway if there are many teachers to teach apprentices.

Lessons, Tutorials and Trial Runs:
A recommended "lesson" would be to first discuss what your apprentice(s) wants to learn. Next, providing one or more tutorials for said apprentice(s) (which don't have to be done by you) is a good idea to help your apprentice(s) to understand what the process of developing that kind of sprite is like. Then the teacher may want to set a task or so for their apprentice(s) which the apprentice(s) can then go and complete, and send to their teacher for comments and constructive criticism. From there the teacher is recommended to continue to build up skills with their apprentice(s) before moving onto another subject/type of sprite.

WARNINGS
1.) If a teacher is bullying you in a matter, report to Graceful_Suicune, Anastasia-R or Kumori Gem.

Teachers
1 report = Teacher loses apprentice(s)
2 reports = Teacher loses (new) apprentice(s) and can not ask for a new one for a week.
3 reports = You are no longer a teacher, and can not sign up to be one any longer.

Apprentice
1 report = Apprentice loses teacher.
2 reports = Apprentice loses (new) teacher and can not ask for a new one for a week.
3 reports = You're no longer an apprentice, and can not sign up to be one anymore.

What will get you immediately kicked out
1) Stealing work, from each or just in general, is bad. x..x Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
2) Not helping at all with each other or getting along at all.


You can sign up and discuss in this thread, but keep the chat to the point – we don’t want needless chatter.

Golden rule: Remember to communicate and have fun!

'Kay, all are accepted, of course! :D And that's fine, Moonkit--as long as you include all your information, then that's cool. Although since you filled out the form anyway, what was the point of not using it in the first place? XD

And sure, Fox! I'll definitely teach you. I've already got banjo3ie, so I'll be taking him as well.

Feel free to VM or PM each other if you don't think they'll check back here. :]

I'm gonna take another apprentice sometime, but I think I'll stop at three. And maybe take one more if I have to. But for now, I think I'll stick with my two, and the others should ask the other teachers. ^^

Also, don't forget that I will post a request for a teacher/apprentice next to your name if you have been asked to be either one, and therefore you can just check your name to see if you have been asked at any time. :]

How long you've been spriting
Hmm... Two or three years? But I'm totally rubbish at everything.
How you can be contacted
PM or VM.
How often you are available
On weekdays around 4-10 GMT+1, at weekends, mainly all day.

I think I could take you both~

As long as this one doesn't go on and die again, I'll help out.
Name: Username is Speed-X, but you can call me by whatever you feel best about. *shrug*
Teacher or apprentice: Teach.
What you want to learn/what you can teach: Anything useful, none of the overly specific stuff such as "eggs" or "holograms" or what have you. Those types of things are categorized into one category: edits. So...basically anything that isn't overly specific like that. Specific things that aren't OVERLY specific are okay, though, such as Revamps and Devamps and the like...even though that may be categorized into something else in my book, since a lot of the time a (de/re)vamp isn't a real (de/re)vamp unless it's completely custom. Well...revamps are more leaniant on that, since it always depends on the original. Devamps usually call for making something totally custom.

But lol, I'm totally blabbing. Anyways, need a hand with editing? Lineart? Shading? Color Schemes? Anything like that? I'm totally cool with that. I'm just not cool with "Frankenspriting," (Copy+pasting) so I won't really mention anything about that assuming that you'd like me to help with fusions and the like.

Just be ready for long explanations, because I like to blabber on. D8
How long you've been spriting: As long as I've been on the internet. (2005.)
How you can be contacted: AIM, VM, PM. Preferrably AIM, but VM if that's not good enough for ya.
How often you are available: Most of the time unless I'm out doing something one day or someone's over or something.

I'm usually on AIM, so feel free to IM me with this kind of thing. Just make sure that, if you want to be assigned to me, send me a VM or PM here and I'll go and confirm it here. Discussing is most conveniently done on AIM, assuming I'm online ^^; (My AIM is SpeedXaaa.)

For now, I'd be alright with taking two people at one time.

And I don't intend to scare anyone off, but I'll make something clear: I don't like sugarcoating things--I just like to get to the point. No, that doesn't mean I'll be downright rude; I can be blunt while still being mature and considerate, but yeah. There's really no use sugarcoating things too much....
I also don't really like to fool around--I'm pretty serious when it comes to pixel art...that is, unless I state otherwise (sometimes I just get incredibly bored and just like to mess around. Meh, I'm only human.)
Anyway, what I mean by that is that I don't prefer to fool around with the useless things, such as overly specific categories of edits and such. You wanna make eggs and whatnot? That's cool, really. But first you'll have to learn how to actually edit pixel art...then you can use that acquired knowledge for anything else pertaining to editing.
That's pretty much what I mean.

I prefer to take in someone who is also pretty semi-serious, but I suppose it's cool if not. Just...yeah.

I'm sorry, I just ramble way too much.

Anyways, please don't let my demeanor seem too intimidating or anything. I'm really a friendly person, I've just matured lately to the point where I don't like overusing smilies and just like to get, like I stated earlier, straight to the point. ^^; Unless I'm just joshing around or whatever.

...But if I don't get any requests, I will start selecting victims people. 8D;

...Kidding. XD

I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to resign as a teacher / instructor.

You know why? The answer to this question is easy: because why waste effort with just me--one person--trying to explain things when tutorials from several different resources word it all so much better than I do?
In other words, you shouldn't learn from just one source--no, that can really create bias.
Any of you know where you can find a good list of tutorials, resources, and just a great community in general?
No, not TSR; I'm referring to PixelJoint. (http://www.pixeljoint.com/)
Now this is a site that's filled with actual artists, not raging sprite artists like on TSR. You want to learn pixel art? Read the tutorials linked in the links section of the site, and join the community and post for some constructive feedback.

If you go along with what they say and try to settle things and such, you certainly will find yourself improving. The critique you gain will come from multiple sources if you were to join PJ or Pixellation (the latter has apparently been rather inactive lately, however.), while with this kind of system, you get only one. Not very sturdy if you ask me.

Anyways, sorry if I let anyone down. But I'm pretty serious: if you really want to learn about pixel art, go to PixelJoint. (http://www.pixeljoint.com/[/url)
Don't be intimidated by them, either; they definitely don't bite. Like I said, they all actually embrace the "art" in "pixel art."
Just...if you can't take constructive comments and tend to take them personally--which is totally the wrong way to go--then I don't recommend.
Art is about keeping an open mind. This is no exception.

Okay, I've rambled enough. It'd be great if you could take me off of the list. ^^; Thanks in advance.

Edit: In case you're interested, just take into consideration that the age minimum to join PixelJoint is like, 13. And that's probably for a good reason, but hey: if you want to join badly enough that you're willing to just lie about your age (assuming that you're under 13), I can't stop you. Just be a little careful.

Well, for now I'll probably post the thread and keep it closed until things sort themselves out more, if that's what you mean. Actually, no, I'll post the thread and open a poll to see what people think. Then you can post replies for more detail. It will be up soon!
