I started to play Flight Rising, about a week ago, when the last registration window was. I’m really addicted by now. xD This is a present i drew for someone who gave me a warm welcome by giving me a dragon for free. x)

Open Trading Partners

Since we’ve gathered some followers, i thought about some kind of list for open trading partners for ATCs.

So if you’re open for international trades and want to be part of this list so that people can note you with trading wishes, just send me the following information via note and i’ll add them to this list!

Nickname: Your tumblr url name and maybe a nickname if that’s different (open your ask box!)

Your Art: Any kind of reference for your usual ATC/drawing styles etc (dA-Nickname, your artblog name, your art tag…)

Your favourite trading motives: for example: Fandoms, general topics, styles…

If you’re not longer open for trading, just send another note and i’ll delete you from here (or set you in brackets if it’s a hiatus).

You can also send me ratings/feedback for users that you’ve traded with!  If the feedback is positive, i’ll add a * to their entry. If you had bad experience, please send me proof and i’ll remove them from this list.

Some additional tips for your trade: Talk about the time you’ll approximately need for the trade. Doesn’t matter if you’re slow but keep your trading partner updated! Also, if you’re not going to make it, tell them. That’s better than letting them wait and getting a bad review. ;)

Best would be to wait for both cards to be done and then exchanging the adresses / sending the letter. Keep in mind your letter is probably having a long way, to stabilize it with cardboard and optimally put your card into wrapping film.

Also, don’t be afraid to say no to a trade. And don’t be sad when someone says no! There should be no pressure.

Thanks! So let’s start. :)

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)

So, let me tell you about Artist Trading Cards.

image

(These are recent cards i made.)

They are the traditional form of small canvas art trades and they are awesome! If you like drawing and collecting, think about them.

Their size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches / 6,4 x 8,9 cm, approximately like those of other trading card systems such as Magic or Pokémon and thus you can buy these cool collector sleeves to organize them.

Same thing, different purpose, are ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals), which are more likely to be sold than traded.

image

(The first page of my folder for ATCs. I love dragon motives.)
[Featuring cards by Nim, suavis, Lufia // silverybeast, Gnomenschuh,
Lynn // grimsqueaker, suavis, Asche, everyone without a link is only on the German ATC trading site]

Also, you stabilize them with cardboard so they feel like real trading cards, but they are originals and unique. On the back just write your name, maybe a card title and number (I count mine), location, date… as you wish.

image

(These are my simple back sides. Many people also have astounding ideas for back sides, they use sticky paper with patterns or draw another finished picture on there. Kudos to them, but i’m lazy.)

Media can also be anything - in my collection, beneath drawings with any type of paint, there are sewn cards, pop-ups, collages, one card from plastic that glows in the dark, cards with stickers… anything that fits in that sleeve. :D I’ve also seen encaustic paintings, photo prints, cards entirely from fabric…

image

[Featuring cards by Püppie, Vinny-Vieh, Püppie // Loona, Rotkehlchen, Jitsch // Collab with Necr0w, Rotkehlchen, 2moro, everyone without a link is only on the German ATC trading site]

image

(Of course, i love fanart, so these are a big part of my collection.)
[Featuring cards by Necr0w, Nils, DarkDust // Rune, Jona, Nils // Nils, Rune, Jona, (yes i know very few Homestuck fans :D), everyone without a link is only on the German ATC trading site]

I started to draw ATCs when I had an art block and needed something new. The small canvas is hard at first but you get better with time and getting original drawings by other people via snailmail just has some magic effects to the heart. People don’t just trade cards that are done already but also agree on trades with motive wishes just as normal art trades. Re-trading cards that you’ve got from another person is theoretically ok, but i’ve never felt the need to give away one of my treasures. :D

Here in Germany the art community loves ATCs. We have a German site that’s only for trading them, that has more members than any international site I’ve visited so far and on every Con there are very few sellers who don’t have ATCs in their repertoire.

image

(Draw it, glue it on cardboard (i use the same water color paper as I’m drawing on) and cut it. The thickness should be more than 220g/m² for reference.]

If you’re interested in trading with me or have any questions or just want to say hello, send me a note! I’d be happy to have some international trading partners. Also, check out these cool ATC artists:

Hey guys!
As most of you already know, our fandom has a few designated tags for different things (#opgraphics, #opsourced, #opfanfic) and we thought, why not create one for the lovely and talented artists in this fandom? That’s where #opfanart comes in. Right now, the opfanart tag is already used by some of the artists within this fandom and yes, there may be some (un)sourced artwork but the plan is to fill that tag with the lovely art our fandom produces! This way, artists who used the opgraphics tag won’t have their art buried amongst gifs and edits, and vice versa. 
So essentially, #opfanart is a tag for all the lovely, original art in the One Piece fandom. This does not include art taken from sites such as pixiv, even if it is properly sourced and it is most certainly not for reposted art. (You’re bound to be reported if you try this!) This tag will bring together all the art made by the fandom, allowing bloggers to view/like/reblog art along with finding other amazing artists. Please make sure you put #opfanart in the first five tags or else it won’t be shown in the tag! (See how tagging works)
We hope to see that tag filled with many amazing artworks in the near future! Please reblog to spread the word and have a lovely day :)
