Fellow Aviation enthusiasts!
...and can now post works directly within a folder.  You all can thank :iconrooivalk1: for pointing this out to me.  I was a little curious why people kept submitting to the "Featured".  Sorry about that folks.  Admin failure to pay attention to details!  I accept full blame.

Its fixed now.  Please, please, PLEASE submit to the right folder for the right media.  "Featured" is for the best of the best, and this might vary as I can go on a curve for some works.  Best of the best for a particular artist might be good.  Just make sure to articulate why you think its your best and be patient with me and the other Admins while we review your work.  Do try to list your media with your artwork, and I encourage you to post image size as well since we are focused on traditional media!  Nothing more incredible than thinking how big, or how small, some originals are.

If anyone has recommendations for how to photograph original artwork, or knows some online articles, or even DA tutorials, do post in the comments and lets share this valuable information.  For some folks, that is the only thing holding back some art from the Featured folder.

Last item, we still need an icon!


:icontrad-aviation-art: needs an icon.  So, I'm open to ideas, submissions, and anything else.

Here's my idea, but it is by NO means the only one I'm open to...

I was thinking if someone can create a traditional artwork that fits within the icon specifications of a fighter aircraft with traditional art tools under the wings in the place of ordnance.

Anyone else have an idea?  Here are the specifications:

FAQ # 404:
"Please be aware that the new avatar must be 100 pixels by 50 pixels and no larger than 30kb"

So, keep it in the specs, and shoot me a note with a link to what you have.  We'll see what gets submitted in the next week or so and figure out if we have enough material to perhaps make it something worthy of at least a survey.  I have no prizes for any contests (other than the honor of your work being the new avatar).

Thanks for doing something about the group's icon, hopefully there will be many submissions. Also, just a question, Does Trad-Aviation-Art include drawings and paintings of modern aircraft and helicopters?
SudsySutherland Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, so long as the subject matter is mostly aviation related, its acceptable no matter the time or air frame from the "birdmen" and balloons through the modern era.

I only ask no science fiction or fictional air frames (though, theoretical 'black project' aircraft like 'Aurora' might be an exception) as there are plenty of groups dedicated to those.  Sorry, no Dale Brown "Old Dog" B-52's either!

Helicopters are most welcome!
