I was wondering whats going on with the new banner? Did the artist bail or what happened? It's been soon one year since topic was active.

 

I was thinking that too...

I asked two artists in March to make our banner! One bailed in April, the other gave me an update in August but hasn't sent anything since. ): I guess artist applications are back open, but just keep in mind this is a massive project.

Can I be completely stupid and ask who the two middle girls in the current banner are? I recognize Venus, Kanadajin, Johanna, Wylona (maybe?) but I can't recognize the others. For some reason it's hard for my brain to process the art style. No shade to the artist, the banner looks amazing, my brain is just being stupid lol

Tbh I was pretty sure it will end like that - idea is cool, but the amount of work and problems with working online are terrible. I was making current banner in duet with Pancake on Parade having some of drawings prepared and ready to changes and still it has taken a lot of work and engagement... 

One has to be really determined to finish it.

Am I reading this correct in that you was making the banner for PULL (along with another person)?

yep and it was really time consuming process. I can check how long it has taken, because I should have access to the emails... the most important info is that our banner is based on another project started long time ago, that involved few people and even then weren’t able to finish it. So PULL has really long story of custom banner fails unfortunately.

Maybe we should just make a group pledge or something, then commission a trusted artist to draw it? Maybe that would speed up the process.

I agree that doing a little kickstarter (or equivalent) and paying an actual professional artist could be nice.

This seems like a good idea, but it might be a little bit of a challenge to find someone who won't think that PULL is doing awful things. I'm not saying I dislike PULL, but considering how often it's been touted as a "hate" and "bullying" website, some artists might not feel comfortable making caricatures of people for us. On the other hand, I don't see that many other options...

I think that there are so many ppl who don't even know PULL. 

Maybe there are people here who can do a good edit instead of a drawing, right?

That can be a good temporal solution, plus, it can make easier artist's work in a future. :alpacaheadshake:

I do some art, but I think I'm nowhere near the level needed.. Maybe try finding artists on the site open for commissions? There are so many people on here who don't even look in this section of PULL

Personally I think it couldn't hurt to open a thread where users can add their artist representations of snowflakes and for the extremely popular/deserving art to be then edited together to form the banner so long as it cohesively works together, even different art styles can mesh well. I've seen plenty of great art in the simply_kenna thread and the Dakota thread just from people pissing about so I think if we just had a more relaxed approach to it people wouldn't feel as pressured.
 
I don't know how successful it would be but I know I was very tempted to get in touch about helping with the banner but I feel like I wouldn't want to bite off more than I can chew with promises being made but if it was more "upload random snowflake art here" with no obligations I would do it in a heart beat.
