TheExquisiteCorpse Club

I started TheExquisiteCorpse club a little more than 7 years ago and I have seen some amazing collaborations in these years.  The EC was created by myself and Bernardumaine Bernard has been one of the most inspirational artists on this site. I have seen some incredible transformations of skill and ideas over these 7 + years. I get compliments on the group daily, telling me it is their favorite group in DA.

I am not the most proficient artist by far. I love to make my drawings and play the EC game. Some people here  have the most beautiful control of the pencil and eraser.Velvety perfect shading , realism like nothing else I have seen, only in dreams.

I am blown away by their artistry every day. I am grateful that younger artists are inspired to draw because of the EC.  A lot of love was put into the concepts of the EC, 4-way drawings as well as double diagonal split, or just the regular left + right, top and bottom.

Whatever way you can collaborate,  do it.

Greetings surreal family

the-surreal-arts needs administrators and a new main moderator. I hope someone dedicated  and adheres to high standards can accept the post of a new owner of this historic and fantastic group. I have moderated the group for two years and will continue to do so. If anyone can donate to this group it would be such an amazing honor. I hope some surreal people can take over from :devHektorPinada:
he is a wonderful man and has run the group effectively.

Please help keep :The-surreal-arts: running.

How we do what we do

:bulletblack: To Join

Please submit a collaboration using the specifics below.

:bulletblack:The way we do it here is that one person does their work on one side, covers it save a 3 cm strip,
:bulletblack: Then sends their drawing through the general post to their collaborative partner,who finishes the image based on the 3 cm strip then...
:bulletblack: Scans it at 300 dpi to send to their partner to have a high quality copy,
:bulletblack: Makes a 72dpi copy for viewing on the web.


:skull: No previews of the strip, no previews in scraps, no previews in any form other than just what your collaborative partner/ recipient sees when they open the envelope or email :bulletblack:digital corpses only. The general public or EC community is not allowed to see that strip!

:bulletblack: Keep in mind this is an advanced skill level group. You are encouraged to do your very best.
:bulletblack: You must have an advanced ability to make images look three dimensional.
