    Default GateWorld Fan Art Gallery

    Hello Everyone!

    So if you haven't seen already Gateworld has a new Stargate Fan Art Gallery for all the amazing art that the Stargate Fandom makes! I was lucky enough to be the first artist featured in the gallery - you can check the article out here

    I am also going be curating the gallery, which is going to be fun! Going to start by making this thread. You can post work in progress shots, ask questions get advice and chat about Stargate Artwork. I want to see everything! Old/new drawings, doodles, oil paintings, collages... any kind of creative art work will be looked at (as long as they follow the gateworld fan art rules)

    I look forward to seeing all your work and having interesting conversations on here!

    It is a very good idea! I wish you good luck. But honestly this should have happened years ago. I have seen a few talented SG fan here, so hopefully we can see more collections in the future.

    Great idea. I love that the phone backgrounds are dedicated to various worlds including their gate addresses. I'm not talented in that way myself, unfortunately have nothing to contribute, but I really appreciate works of other fans.

    Thanks guy's!

    I want this forum to be a kind of ideas brainstorming area! so feel free to through out suggestions. It would be great to see work in progress as well as finished art on here. If you find amazing work on the inter webs then post that work here too (with the artists name) I also want to encourage people who may think art isn't their thing to give it a go too! We have to help each other and be supportive!

    What do you think can we create a place like that?

    Who is going to take part in this weeks weekly challenge? its looking like the theme could be Milky Way Stargate or Puddle Jumper, I can already think of a great Puddle Jumper image from the series! I will be posting my sketches up here so you guys can give me feed back too so don't be shy

    Hey Bluebari, Would be great for you to join in on the weekly Challenges! You don't have to be an expert! stick figures that are Stargate characters is enough! I am happy to give pointers to anyone too!

    My idea:

    Once I have visited a Christmas shop at Niaga-on-the-lake (near the Niagara falls on my holiday, where I have seen Christmas lights made from everyday objects (like mini Coca-cola bottles). So I was wondering if we could make something similar with Stargate chevrons? I know it is a bit advanced project with lights and glass chevrons, so maybe somebody can make it.

    The starter version should be just a common Christmas decoration. I imagined a 3D chevron, what could be cut out of from a printed paper version than the fans could glue it together to make a 3D object. I believe it would look cool, so maybe I will try to draw a test picture. But I am not a pro and I definately have got only enthusiasm and I have not got really expert skills or programs for it. Later we could make other hand made 3D objects... Like Jaffa Symbols, glyphs or replicator blocks etc.

    * * *

    Or just because Eastern is coming maybe we could make a challenge who can paint SG related eggs etc.

    I made a similar enquiry on Twitter about what rules are to be followed and clearly, it's the GW rules. However, it's with that in mind that I would like to know the rules on artwork that deals with romantic relationships because as it stood, when the fanfic archive (a looooong time ago) was still active, slash pairings were not allowed anywhere near it. See below why:

    Quote Originally Posted by Skydiver View Post

    Forum rule on the PG-rating:

    Why is the forum "Rated PG?" What does that mean?
    GateWorld Forum is family-friendly, meaning we have a low tolerance for profanity and off-color conversation. Keep in mind when you post that several of our regulars are under 18 years old, and the forum has an active profanity filter set by the moderators.

    Please also do not post questionable or adult-related images or off-site links, be it in public posts, private messages, your personal profile, signature, or anywhere else on the forum.
    Are we to assume that (fem)slash art (PG-rated of course, much like all artwork by the way to comply to the rules) is still not welcome?

    ***************

    And also, perhaps a good reminder or a notion for newbies!

    The rule on photomanipulation (also not unimportant):

    Photo manipulations. All manipulations must be appropriate for all ages. This means no compromising positions, no nudity, and all manipulations must be in good taste (at the sole discretion of the moderators). This excludes manips that create two actors kissing, or the like. If they haven't kissed in real life, we don't want pictures of them kissing here. Putting a person's head on another person's body is also inappropriate.

    Those rules and snippets from the FAQ were uploaded a long time ago,and I know there may be some changes ahoy once Darren's able to re-work the fanfic gallery.
    With all the normal site stuff ,his own RL ,work ,Twitter,news aggregating,and co-ordinating the site and forums,there's quite a backlog of work on his To-do and To-consider files.
    The fanfic part of the site caused a major security issues,so that's why uploading was suspended long ago.The last thing we want is computer hacks and viruses.


    FWIW, I'd think Andrew as Curator/Artist may hesitate to answer on GateWorld's behalf ,and may not wish to get into a discussion on the trickier details,so as a courtesy - go easy on him.He doesn't set policy and only just joined.Let's make him feel welcome,thanks!

    I think you'll find plenty so-called Slash and Femslash pairings round the forums,and a thread for Camille.

    If GW was as discriminatory as some claim,those threads would never have been allowed or they'd have been far more heavily modded than shipper threads.That has never been the case.For that matter,a lot of other sites over the years haven't even allowed threads for thunk or so-called "Het" pairings.

    (By the way,isn't it a bit dated nowadays for fans to call the same sex pairings "Slash" and het pairings "Ship" as if love is a different beast for straight vs LGBT QI pairings?

    Just my thoughts and opinions.)

    Let’s all give Darren a chance to speak up. As I’m sure you guys can all imagine, owning this site plus family, career and education can be very daunting. And I’m sure it is even more so with the resurgence in fans with the new show.

    Whatever may or may not change from the past there is still one rule that rules them all....Darren pays the bills, so whether or not you agree with his rules, I ask that folks respect them. Keeping this site running is not cheap and as long time fans have seen site after site fall due to waning interest in behalf of the owner, this one is still up and running almost TWENTY YEARS after the show first premiered. THat is quite the accomplishment.

    Thanks for the reassurance.

    If some gaters use this differentiation, the distinction is not shared across most fandoms, which classify both het and slash as subsets of ships. It's all shipping for me!

    To be completly honest, I like this idea that GW would like to collect SG fan arts and to hold fan arts related events, but this step should have been done 15-20 years ago. If you check it online there are so many talented people on the net. Stargate was always a little fish next to big names (like Star Trek or Star Wars), but it became part of our scifi geek life. And it looks like so many fans have missed this show as there are so many wonderful arts on the net. Stealing became a problem on Stargate : Command, so I really hope you have an action plan what will happen in such cases.

    I am also very naive or innocent probably, because the whole slash pairing problems have not even showed up in my mind. I doubt that it would cause any problems as we are mature enough. Those type of slash arts could be still kept in a closed section of the SG fan arts, where the GW would ask confirmation of DOB or show some warnings. But if we trully believe in equality then these LGBT arts should not be even separated. The age check could happen at the entrance of that section, then it should be kept together with the other works. Really, guys, we are in the XXI. century. Don't tell me that the orientation of the fans or what they can put together as fan art can be offensive to anyone. Even the Ancients said "free will". So anyone has got the right to chose to check or NOT to check the fan arts, but I doubt there should be any restrictions on the subjects.

    I also would like to grab the chance to talk about the discrimination of LGBT users on GW. Even if I am a straight guy. I am talking about Pharaoh Hamenhotep's case. I don't know the whole story and I haven't digged deeply in the forum to read what happened and I don't know who started it or who said what, but all what I have heard from other resources that the fans have attacked him (or her) and seriously life-treatened him/her just because he/she was figting for him/her opinion. Then the moderators haven't defended him/her and banned the victim and the online bullying forum members were not warned. How could such thing happen here? Seriously I am still shocked. I always believed that GW defends values and every forum users are equal here. The sexual orientation of a fan is such a private thing that I don't understand how can someone be attacked because of it or how can that fan's art work being judged with prejudice. So please, don't tolerate or support such cases and the mods should defend the victims even if they don't agree with them. We are here for the love of our favorite scifi shows, don't let the fun be ruined here. Peace.

    Wraithtech: you're welcome.

    Platschu: there are several points about your post that merit an answer but this an ART thread not a place to berate the owner or the Staff.You aren't privy to moderation matters,deep detail from the people PH apparently accused , or conversations between PH and the staff - and that's the case whoever is mentioned.
    You talk of "peace" yet what you've said derails this thread.

    PM me or wait on an answer from Darren before you make any other claims.

    GUYS!! GUYS!!

    I was just asking a question for clarification. And I don't expect Andrew to know right away -- I'm sure he converses with the GW-team about such matters.

    Don't get your mivonks in a twist...

    Quote Originally Posted by Bagpuss View Post

    I honestly never seen the FF archive on Gateworld in action so I cannot comment on what went on in there. But much like fanfic, art is a fan's creation to celebrate their favorite show or aspects of it, and that includes the wonderful world of shipping.

    Naturally artwork has to be PG or G, or what is that other system, T? That's the forum's setting so I think it's logical that's the top rating. Anything above a PG-13 is obviously off-limits (no issues whatsoever with that).

    That's not cool -- GW might not be, or isn't -- but the same cannot be said for some of its users. Don't have to tiptoe around that. We were all there (well, the gang of Political Thread nitwits anyway -- don't tell em I said that).

    Quote Originally Posted by Bagpuss View Post

    Don't look at me, I have no idea.

    Okay, I looked it up.

    O.M.G. -- I looked it up and the use is over 40 years old already. You may blame the Star Trek fandom for the use of slash apparently (made popular by Kirk/Spock of the original series). Fascinating stuff -- slash terminology (fanlore wiki) (for anyone interested). Who knew.

    *****

    Though, I do would like to know the rules and I would obviously be disappointed if PG m/f relationships were allowed to be featured and not m/m or f/f.

    @Platschu -- I'm not advocating for higher ratings. I like PG/G/13/T whatever is YA (young adult) to keep it in the "family-friendly" corner. I just need that confirmation that "family-friendly" means all families and friends.

    Okay, I have sent a longer PM for you, Bagpuss. Apology, I didn't want to off this thread.

    * * *

    Back to SG art. Here are a few more ideas:

    Could the GW (Darrell) contact such people who are responsible for the art design of the SG shows? It would be interesting to see and hear how they plan a design of props, so please make an interview with them.

    Or it would be also nice to make an official book which would collect all the sketches, drawings, art work of the 3 SG shows (and the Stargate:Worlds), so maybe MGM would consider to release it. Maybe the should make some nice photos about props as well. JM posted lots of pictures on his blog, but it would be nice if they could officially scan those. I believe every fan would be happy with such a nice book. Even the income of such SG related merchandise product could support a new SG show.

    I also suggested on Stargate : Command that they should make a "virtual SG museum". So they should make some HQ photos about such props, set pieces, outfits which were not sold yet, so every fans could have a closed looks. Maybe it should be an all-access material.

    I can't expect to have a studio tour like Harry Potter in Vancouver, but it would been so cool. I hope if they make any other SG movie or series, than they will make such 3D photos where the fans could "walk around" on the set.

    Or they should hire a photographer to visit those locations in Vancouver where they have shot SG-1. I know there are some collections online, but it would be cool to see more in an official book.

    Falcon,I hear you.For the record I possess no mivonks.( I learn something new every day.)

    Interesting stuff re the link about Slash.

    Yep,regrettably, political and certain other opinions are very divisive,often end up in personal issues and flames, and that's why the Ignore feature and report button are very useful here.
    Basically the Staff can't be everywhere to make sure nobody is offended by other Members' opinions,but we try a lot harder than some may think!

    Now -back to Art.

    I'm useless on creating art,but love to see it in its many forms.

    FAO Andrew:
    do you want links posted in here to Stargate artists and other relevant GW threads,or would you prefer recs via Private message?

    PS: Getting to your PM asap,Platschu!

    I do think one thing folks need to bear in mind....copyright.

    Did you know, actors can have 100% control over anything with their image on it? Such as signing off on any book cover or poster. ANd without them signing off on it the item will not be made.

    But since this forum strives to maintain a friendly relationship with MGM and folks associated with it, there may be tighter rules and restrictions here than on a random fan run forum.

    It’s not unknown for copyright holders to have a very hands off approach - such as I recall hearing that JK Rowling is rather open with what she allows with her characters and universe as long as certain lines are not crossed. Other fandoms are very tightly regulated. I recall that the Star Wars fandom was very controlled with C&D letters going out frequently.

    My point is, regardless of what fans think should be done, ultimately the decision may be guided by what the copyright owners allow to be done.

    With that in mind, while we do welcome ideas and suggestions, there may be things happening ‘above our pay grade’ so to speak, that we simply have to allow and go along with.

    As has been said, let’s give Darren time to check into and make his guidelines known and folks can go from there.
