About Us

Interested in artwork for The Old Republic, are ye? Look no further! This here dA group was built to serve one major purpose: showcase the artwork of our community's very fine artists.

Interested in having your own TOR art shown here for others to see? Say no more! Well actually, say a couple things. Start by hitting the "join group" button. Once I approve your request to join, you'll be able to submit art. Just make sure it goes in the right folder!

Also, all members can submit favorites or even blogs. We have a section in favorites for good reference pictures, so if you see a pose, or clothing design, or whatever that you think would make a good TOR picture, +fav it into our reference section so others can use it!

Thanks, and enjoy yourself as we geek out about this wonderful upcoming MMO!

It's that time again!  A couple of years have gone by, some new faces are here, some old ones have gone their own way... and the SWTOR admin team finds itself with a few openings!

It's a relatively relaxed job with only a couple simple job descriptions:

* Approve any member who would like to join the group.
* Approve/Deny artwork based on two criteria: (must be directly related to SWTOR the MMO, must be PG13)
* Rearrange the artwork into the appropriate folders (do not deny someone for submitting to the wrong folder, simply approve it and move it)
* Select great artwork and move it to the featured folder.

It's very low stress, and the act of having multiple admins means if you need to take some time away, there are others to have your back.  We try to keep it as inclusive to members as possible.  As long as the artwork is TOR related and fits within the realm of PG13, we approve it.  There's never any drama of "why wasn't my piece good enough?!" or anything silly like that.

If you're interested in this spot, please send me a note and I'll review with you and see if you are a good personality match.

I had a question for Star Wars fans! I plan on making a role-play group in the near future...However I am uncertain if I should only draw from material considered canon, or from the 'legends' non canon material as well?

Particularly with the skill tree, if i should include 'non canon' force abilities. Let me know what you guys think, personal opinions and such on the matter!

Hi! I would just like to add my opinion. I would and I am drawing from the legends. I simply find it more interesting but also more flexible which is very important to me. Good luck!

It depends on what you're going for. At this point, I think it depends on what you'd prefer. If you're a fan of the legends continuity, go ahead and use it! If you're not, or you don't feel confidant drawing from that much material, or whatever else, stick to the new cannon. Personally, I'd use legends, but that's entirely personal preference.

However, one thing I will say from all the rp experience I've had: Once you pick one, stick with it. Not only is it going to be massively confusing to your players if some material from the other continuity is acceptable and some isn't, but you will always have that one player who will try to justify weird things that don't make sense in your world with "but the other cannon is ok with it, and we take some things from than cannon, so why not this!"

As for skill trees... it depends on how exactly you're running your roleplay (one done in the style of a classic tabletop rpg will obviously have different rules than one that's completely free-form), but in general I'd say use whatever powers are appropriate for the cannon you're using. HOWEVER, don't forget that there's an inherent gap between what happens in gameplay and what's continued cannon from a story standpoint. For example, in most games, Force Healing is pretty much a standard heal ability from a mechanical standpoint- you wait a cast time or sit and meditate for a few seconds, and your health comes back. But in pretty much every other form of media, Force Healing is depicted as more of an acceleration of the body's normal processes. Very powerful, yes, but not instantaneous, and definitely limited by the skill of the force user as to how much can actually be done. Another example would be that most games give various powers auras, flames, flashes of light, and other assorted visual effects. We don't see any of this in the movies, so I'm pretty sure they just added it for visual interest and ease of gameplay.

Hello! Thank you for the accept.

Just wanted to check if it's permissible to use quotes from the game in my TOR art (or in the comments, in the description, whatever.) I feel like that's OK seeing as we all know what/who I'm referencing (and as long as I credit SWTOR appropriately), but it doesn't hurt to check :)

KnHawke Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2015
I agree with ya on all points, so long as you appropriately credit each source in the TOR eu, all is good :)

Hi, sorry for a bit of a stupid question, but I've been having a look through the galleries and I'm not sure where to submit a hand-drawn sketch - where would that go? Would it be in 'lineart and shading'?
KnHawke Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2015
You got it :)
Skyflower51 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
All right, thanks! Just wanted to make sure. :)
KnHawke Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2015
