a question for yerfers and yerf experts
okay..so some of you have been bugging me to join yerf *eyes Reaper and Xian* but the thing is..im so sensitive about rejection! seriously..you have no idea =P
last time they rejected me..yeah i could see why NOW art wise, but it was for stupid reasons (crappy scan/ static pose etc..)

so i was wondering, are any of my VCL works yerf worthy? i thought maybe do my recent one with the LuffWuffs, but should something like that have at least some sort of simple background? what about my owls? they allow a certain ammount of wildlife-ish art...and they said that one wild life piece is okay.

and how about the scans..do they suck? how do i fix them? basically why im saying this on my live journal is cuz those yerf forum admins are so topic-lock happy i dont wanna put a topic where it doesnt belong..ask a "duh?" question or do anything else to annoy them and hinder my chances =P okay..now im sounding all nervous and giddy.


so please..help? *holds out a pathetic paw*

Current Mood: determined determined

Well, I be a bit frazzled and brain-dead, but gee-whiz that Luffwuffs looks like Yerf material to me! Nice technique, very polished-looking!

First off, check out this page to see what they're looking for in aps. Basically, you'd need to apply with your full-body images - no head shots. None of your avatars or comp-colored stuff would make it in. Your b&w stuff is all very nice - well-inked and very clean and crisp ^_^ I'd recommend applying with no more than one b&w piece, though. I still really like your foxtaur pic ^_^ Do you have any favorite b&w pieces, preferably with a background? Your new pic would be a good choice also, especially if you added a background. For the other two pieces, you'll need work in color with a background. If you ever finished "Peace in the Desert", I'd go with that one, but barring that, I'd say to use your owls. Perhaps your birthday pic for Brenda? You don't have many color pics with backgrounds to pick from...

As for getting cleaner scans - scan your b&w stuff in greyscale mode. That should get rid of the off-white background. Also, the gamma level adjustment tool is your friend! Playing with that and the brightness/contrast levels helps clean scans.

Not that I'm a Yerf expert or anything, but I think your work is definately worth it

I think Peace in the Desert would be a great app piece once it's finished =)
