we had art war with story and stuff :D art fight is more like a big team of art traders against another big team of art traders. And the more features your picture has the more points and your team will get.

you make an account there and check for the latest event. Then you join it and the website sorts you into a team. You submit characters and fill out infos about them.  Then you can chose someone you want to attack or you get attacked first. You can revenge yourself or not. 
When you submit art (an attack) you fill out if the picture is fullbody, colored shaded and so on. This calculates the "worth" of your art so you earn points (not dA points) which later will be part of your team´s points. The team with the most points wins.

u will enter at ur request at a randomly team, and once u get in one, u must attack others from the opposite team. but there is a option called friendly fire when 2 people from same team fight each.

I've had an account there for some time, but I was too shy to do anything there so I kinda forgot about it. ;w;'

was hard in the beginning too but ;o;

Maybe one day you will feel brave enough :3 And if not, doesn´t matter as long as you enjoy drawing 8D

Maybe one day! I mean, I can't draw when someone is watching, so the thought of streaming sounds kinda crazy to me. :'D But, I'm hoping that one day I'll be confident enough!

Oh and hey, I noticed you joined Art Fight. Is it easy to understand/use? I'm really tempted to give it a try but new sites scare me. :lol:

I hate it actually when people watch me draw (in real life) .. online, I don´t care anymore xD
Good luck for that :D

At the beginning it is super complicated D: but the discord chat has so many nice people in there they explained me everything xD
New sites are so scary, I agree! But we have nothing to lose but time so... :dummy:

Also a friend of mine registered two hours ago and she still did not get her email =A= if you decide to join I hope it works quicker for you!

Basically, you get assigned to one of the two teams available that year. Once you are asigned, you have to make art of characters belonging to people on the opposite team, and those people might draw your characters in return. The more art you draw, the more points you earn. By the end of the month, all the points earned by the teams are counted and one of them wins. That's basically the gist of it I think. More in depth rules on what is allowed and what isn't is on the site itself - artfight.net/info/rules and some other things are explained here - artfight.net/info/faq

And yes, you can join at any time, and can enter a team at any moment when the event is active.

When you submit the attack (which is the art you did), you choose what quality it is (for example if it's a headshot or a fullbody, a sketch or clean lineart, flat colored or shaded, how detailed the background is, etc.). Once you confirm it, it will show how much points it will be worth, as different types of art are worth different amount of points (a sketchy headshot with rough coloring, no shading and a pattern for a bg will count for less than a detailed fullbody with shading and a scene in the bg). There is no actual guide to how much each option counts for, I'm afraid.

you can join at any time!

and you just draw people's characters as "attacks" - but it only counts if you draw art for the opposite team. if you attack someone on your own team, it's friendly fire and won't get your team any points.

oh, there's 2 teams. (obviously, as I mentioned.)

Okay thanks. But is each art work worth the same? And do I decide which team I join?
