When posting a head shot of a character there really isn't much else to be seen,
they don't contain much of a background and for these reasons we're now pushing them over
to Indy Art. If the piece looks more like it's highlighting your vectoring skills then it now belongs over there.

I'll go ahead and use some examples from our lovely staff and members:


On my own by Yuki-k

Bloody Eye by Bad--Girl

Attack! by Morrow

Now as you can see all these wallpaper sized arts showcase very close images
of the character/characters, much of the background isn't visible and it looks more like
we're looking to see the vectoring quality than an actual wallpaper as a whole.

Examples of what doesn't belong in the Indy Art

Midnight Magic by Yamibou-Eve

And the Angel Sings by Yamionpu

In these we have a background visible, it brings the wall together and you aren't staring at just the face
of the character.

If you ever have a question or concern, not sure about something we'll be happy
to answer them all here in this thread. Happy Posting!

I always thought art like the first three you listed belonged more to the Indy-Art section, glad to see there's a rule clarifying that sort of thing now Kit^^

Will I ever be able to escape this eternal living Hell, this endless cycle of being used, hurt and betrayed…? After all others had hated and abandoned me, he was the first to ever view me with only love and kindness in his eyes... He sees me for what I truly am... I love and will never abandon him... Our hearts will shine together... And break through the darkness and discord that is Eternity...

Thanks for taking the time to post this, Kitaan.

This is definitely a necessary thing, since it seems that members are unclear about what should be posted where when it comes to facial walls, and this is a great way to distinct between the two.

about time, that way you can equally show some love to the indy art section as well. since head shots are just...shots. like cb mentioned it helps with people uncertain about what's what, probably still going to be some moving around until people do figure it out too, but that's the joys of being in that department :) always something to do

This is one good picture that shows how to make close up pictures as wallpapers that have what it needs to be outstanding even if it isn't an overly intricated piece of art. If you're trying to create such a picture, you need to find something to center it around. Simple screenshots don't have that, they're like photos taken with a run-of-the-mill camera. You can sing its praise as much as you want, but it won't be long before you delete them to make room for new ones. It is for that reason, that it's difficult to pull it off well, because where on a wallpaper which has all the elements on it, everything stands on the closeup of only one. So to make it good, you need to consider what makes the scene a screencap is supposed to show extraordinary. That's why they're so rare.

Also, this should be called close up wallpapers or something. Headshots are, you know, headshots. :P
