Artspots and Jaxpad - The art of Thornwolf

Artspots and Jaxpad
Ok I admit I was a bit skeptical at first, like I am with every other new gallery, but it seems that ArtSpots/Jaxpad is shaping up pretty nicely. They are /very/ open to community suggestions and so far appear to be nicely filling the niche of Yerf without being so utterly anal about nipples and tasteful nudes, which they have a nice "filter" feature on anyways for safe work browsing.

I'm going to be uploading more work here. Here are my ArtSpots and Jaxpad galleries respectively

http://artspots.com/users/thornwolf
http://jaxpad.com/users/thornwolf

Right now my galleries are linked so the same stuff thats on Artspots is the same stuff on Jaxpad but I think that will change soon

I encourage folks to apply to either or gallery! Seriously it seems nice =)

Ditto on the encouragement! I'm thrilled with both of these galleries! :D

By the way, how long did it take artspots to reply to your application? I applied a few days ago and haven't heard back. ;_;

also! Now I should add you to my.. watch.. list things.

A day. But honestly from what I've seen they don't take any longer than a week and a half at most which is more than I can say about Yerf

What's the difference between the two sites? Just curious, thanks!
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 8th, 2006 09:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
ArtSpots is the more quality controlled version of Jaxpad. Whereas Jaxpad allows a wider range of people ArtSpots you have to apply to and based on quality they will set up your gallery.

Is artspots as anal about humans/creatures with human faces as yerf was? That was one of the things that pissed me off about artvark.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 8th, 2006 09:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don'tthink so. I think they just stress that this is an anthropomorphic gallery specifically. Dunno though, maybe ask the mods? Maybe I should upload my sphinx sketches and see what happens. They don't seem like the crowd to go on a deleting spree like Yerf did though.
kitsumi From: kitsumi Date: November 8th, 2006 09:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't remember where I saw this, but the admin did mention something along the lines that fairies with dragonfly wings aren't considered anthropomorphic, but centaurs and such creatures are. You could make a post in the forum, they're pretty fast about replying.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 8th, 2006 09:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
She draws tengu creatures a lot so I think that's why she's asking, since they're primarily birds with people faces and clothes I'd say that's just as anthro as a centaur, yeah? I hope they allow that stuff because her art is boss.
kitsumi From: kitsumi Date: November 8th, 2006 09:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
I would say so. I'd love to see her work, if there's one thing we need more of around the anthro art galleries is variety. :P

ArtVark has been allowing humans for a while now, FYI. You still have to apply with at least one or two furry thangs, but after you're in you can do whatever you want
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 9th, 2006 02:00 am (UTC) (Link)
Are apps even open? Last I checked theyve been closed for awhile =/
drake_anaya From: drake_anaya Date: November 9th, 2006 02:01 am (UTC) (Link)
They just closed down again yesterday, since they capped at 12 apps. They usually only give a week's advance warning, so that much kinda sucks...
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 9th, 2006 02:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Im still debating on whether or not I want to re-join. I had a gallery for about a day once upon a time but because of drama and undecidedness on the admins part I pulled it. That was years ago though so I'm sure things have improved but still..errhg. Trying to stay away from dramatic galleries right now. :(
foxfeather From: foxfeather Date: November 8th, 2006 09:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Looks like a nice gallery. I just started posting some stuff there. I sent in an app and never heard back but I checked and I can now upload art, so apparently I was accepted!
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 8th, 2006 09:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
What happened with me was, the ArtSpots acceptance letter went to my gmail spam filter. maybe its there?
foxfeather From: foxfeather Date: November 8th, 2006 09:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't have a spam filter right now, but it is entirely possible I deleted it in a fit of spam-killing rage, if it wasn't extremely obviously marked. I need a spam filter bad, I am losing a lot of emails because of all the junk I get (on order of 200 emails a day >.<)

My only gripe about the site is the letter thing at the top of the artist listing does not take you to artists with that name yet.

Oo. -Adds Thorn to the watch list thingy-

Now I watch you. >O.O<

:D
From: dirtylittlelie Date: November 8th, 2006 10:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
I might try to apply later. >.>

I just wanted to mention, I got the card safe and sound. (: Thanks!
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 8th, 2006 10:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well that was fast, I just sent it off Monday! Sorry that took so long. I left the package in my car and kept forgetting to bring it up ;P I'm lame. But hey, you got it so all is well. Thanks for the doodle! :D
From: billysheep Date: November 9th, 2006 04:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
holy fuck *yes*, icon love.

randomly.
From: dirtylittlelie Date: November 9th, 2006 07:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I HAVE MORE WHERE THAT COMES FROM.

There are 100 of them, made by the same person. (: I can't remember who, but it credits them in my usericon thing, so if you want to check them out, that's where to go. I actually think it's [Bad username: deepfishy&quot;], but I could be wrong.

What are the submission rules, anyway? No yiff, I presume? What about artistic nudes?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 8th, 2006 10:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lots of people asked that questiobn already on the forums and so far artistic nudes are fine. Basically anything that falls under a PG 13 rating in the movies, so the PG 13 movie Titanic nudity with Jack drawing Rose is fine. I've already uploaded something with nipples as a "test", but I don't think they're going to put the smackdown on someone for nipple hints like they would on other galleries.
stokerbramwell From: stokerbramwell Date: November 8th, 2006 10:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very sensible, too. The weird thing people have about nipples is SO silly. :p
From: billysheep Date: November 8th, 2006 11:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
I already have

though not to artspots, for obvious reasons
neongryphon From: neongryphon Date: November 9th, 2006 12:59 am (UTC) (Link)
Good to see you on artspots. It’s such a nice little community and a great place for crits. The forums worth joining by itself.
I’m not sure if they’re going to give some better guidance for submissions. I currently have a wolf in my gallery. The description is of a spirit guide to clarify the genre, but the picture itself is very non-morphic. But so far that’s been accepted. All I know is girls with cat ears, fae with animal wings and such aren’t considered anthro.
smokepaw From: smokepaw Date: November 9th, 2006 01:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Heh, quite interesting how people are saying that ArtSpots is taking a really long time to process applications. The response back for me was quicker than it took me to check my mail after clicking the 'Apply' button.

Nice place, so far. Though I'm going to have to learn how to manuver around a new art site yet again! Hmm... Perhaps I should check out JaxPad too?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 9th, 2006 01:11 am (UTC) (Link)
A week isn't a long time really. Considering Yerf apps would take /months/ at times...seriously, not that bad XD
smokepaw From: smokepaw Date: November 9th, 2006 01:50 am (UTC) (Link)
This is true... :P

Or, have them not send anything back at all. I hate it when that happens!
cesarin From: cesarin Date: November 9th, 2006 02:47 am (UTC) (Link)
I dont know but furryartpile.com aka fap as the same identic engine than artspots, except it hallows porn o_O
weird..

seems that code got quite famous
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: November 9th, 2006 02:51 am (UTC) (Link)
faaaascinating...hrm!

Well, just joined FAP now XD
cesarin From: cesarin Date: November 9th, 2006 05:06 am (UTC) (Link)
PERVERT!!! ;P
*stalks you even more*
From: astolpho Date: November 9th, 2006 08:46 am (UTC) (Link)
Er, I somehow doubt that's the same engine driving Artspots/Jaxpad. It was written from the ground up specifically for those sites.
