This is the livejournal community for members of the Elfwood Artist Community, Bifrost Fantasy! This is a group for people to participate in projects for Elfwood, talk about Elfwood, art or writing techniques, or pretty much anything.
Bifrost is Elfwood's first collaborative art/writing club, founded by Paula Fletcher!
Who can join Bifrost? Any artist or writer who has an Elfwood Gallery or Wyvern's Library page! Bifrost welcomes artists & writers of all skill levels and mediums (i.e. drawing, painting, digital, sculpture, photo-manip, short stories, poetry & more)!
Want more visitors to your Elfwood gallery... Want artist/writer buddies to chat or offer critiques on your work... Want the motivation and inspiration to produce more artwork or writings?
Participating in collaborative art/writing projects is a great way to achieve these things...which is why Bifrost was created!
Our Yahoo!Group & mailing list is where most of our club activity occurs. You can interact with other members through chat & email, submit project ideas, upload image/text files for projects you participate in, vote in group polls, etc...
We launch a new collaborative art/writing project every other month. We decide on our new project by suggesting ideas, then the ideas are collated into a poll. Then all group members get to cast a vote for the project idea of their choice. The votes are counted and the winning project is announced.
Members have two months to produce an artwork/writing that corresponds to the project theme (if they wish to participate in that project). At the end of the two month time limit, the submitted artworks/writings are combined in an Elfwood tour & a tour located here on our Bifrost homepage. The artist/writer whose idea was chosen for the project will be featured in the tours and on our Bifrost homepage!
We also have different competitions, throughout the year, including our "Semi-Annual Bifrost Logo Competition" and, each month, we nominate a new "Member-of-the-Month", to be featured on our homepage!
