May I suggest you add a project folder for people who want help with a project? It'd be a good addition, it could have only journals or information pictures/animations.
CrownePrince Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional Filmographer
A forum would be a better way to do that, but DA doesn't have that option for groups.

I'm more interested in having this as a gallery for complete animations. I don't want subscribers' inboxes full of people seeking animators for things, since as a community we get preyed on a lot by those who don't understand how time consuming this type of art is.

trying to make a flash game but I do most my art in sai and photoshop, though when put into flash it goes all fuzzy, any way around that?
CrownePrince Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Photoshop is a raster-based drawing program.
Flash is a vector-based drawing program.

Vectors are based on math, so you can resize them without them getting fuzzy. Rasters will look fuzzy if imported into flash and resized - the only way to avoid it is to keep all art at its original size. I imagine using rasters in gaming will cause fuzziness as the program applies mathematical transformations to artwork to make the game function as you tell it to.

My recommendation is to do your drawing natively in Flash or in another vector-based program like Illustrator, Fireworks, or Inkscape.

was hoping to make a visual novel kinda game, no real movment but alot of images lol

I've brought Photoshop made backgrounds into Flash before. As long as they're sitting on the stage in the original resolution they're fine, as far as I was able to see.
