Some of you may already know this, but we've recently added a new Cosplay & Textile Goods
folder to the club! So, for all you fans out there who love to create costumes and dress up like your favorite Sonic character can now submit your cosplays and textile stuff to us!
Now, after discussing it with the admins, we know that with one of the rules we have is that we only accept work that you've created 100% yourself. We know for a fact that it's incredibly difficult to make every little thing 100% yourself when it comes to creating costumes. So, we've decided for the Cosplay & Textile Goods
folder only, as long as you've created about 30%-40% of the costume yourself, you're welcome to submit it!
So show us all your cosplays and textile goods Sonic fans!
In addition to the new cosplay folder, we now officially have a folder for Flash and Animations
.Literature Folder Additions/Improvements
Along with our new folder additions, we've also decided to revamp the Literature
folder a little bit to enhance both exposure and the experience for our literary devotees.
For one, we've added some guidelines pertaining specifically to this folder, such as a minimum length
of a submission as well as a three (3) chapter maximum
per any work submitted. What that translates into is that for any body of continuous fan literary work you submit, we're only accepting three chapters from it. This will not only improve the quality of submissions entering the folder as it will only encourage writers to submit their most upstanding work. It will also potentially increase the amount of exposure they receive by encouraging the reader to read subsequent chapters/pieces within their own galleries.
We've also added a Poetry and Prose
subfolder within the main folder for those members who also happen to be poets at heart.
You can familiarize yourself with these and the other new guidelines within the Literature folder here
Want a really epic Sonic wallpaper for your computer’s desktop? Well now you can! We'll shortly set up a widget allowing you to download wallpapers. Once in a while, the admin team will find wallpapers that we would love to showcase and expose to the club for our members to download. Or, if you
find or create really neat wallpaper and want to share it with us, feel free to drop us a note
This week's featured artist is ~Unichrome-uni
. It's always a treat to feature younger fan artists, and she doesn't disappoint; she already had a wonderful grasp on utilizing composition, shading, and color to make the most of of any piece. It's also a delight to watch the gradual refinement and improvement that her work has shown in her short one year tenure on deviantART.
I encourage you all to take a moment to stop by their gallery and admire their work.

Yes, it's a little old. But gotta start with something right? (plus, maybe some of you might have missed this) CGSociety had published an article about the production of the short film Night of the Werehog
(Japanese version here
). It's very insightful and full of concept works everyone should take a look at, especially aspiring 3-D animators!
