Art Portfolio Project - Who's Interested?
ATTENTION ALL ARTISTS!!!

NEW UPDATE!

Thank you, everyone who has shown such a great interest in this project! I am amazed at how many folks wanted to take on two, or even three different breeds! As I said originally, I wanted to avoid repeating breeds because I want to make sure that this portfolio stayed pretty diverse. However, with the list of breeds quickly being eaten up, I've decided to give everyone the option of picking a second (or even third) breed if they really want to. I would still prefer to see no more than two of the same breed drawn however (let's keep this as mixed up as we can). Also, if anyone knows of a restricted breed that they would like to do, that is not mentioned on this list, feel free to let me know!

Just to recap, the theme of this portfolio is to choose a discriminated, or misunderstood "tough" breed of dog, and draw it in a fun and positive manner. You may be as creative as you like. I will get a LJ Community started for this project, with all of the details and rules, by sometime Friday. Biggest rule is that all artwork not go above a PG rating, (as this is going out to the general public, so it must stay family friendly, please!) and the due date is August 1st, in time for the 2007 My Dog Votes Candle Light Vigil Against Breed Bans.

THIS IS A FUNDRAISER PORTFOLIO PROJECT, and so I urge all artists who plan on selling their original works to please consider donating the money they make to the Banned Aid Coalition. I will put a mailing address up on the LJ Community site for folks to send donations to.

ALL ARTISTS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO ALL OF THE FINISHED HIGH-RES WORKS, so you will be responsible for saving all of the files yourself, so that you can make your own CDs to sell at conventions or auctions.

Lastly, spread the word! If you know of anyone who would like to be on this portfolio, bring them aboard! This is supposed to be fun. ;) Let's see what kind of creative stuff you guys can come up with! :)


Breeds will be chosen on a first come, first serve basis. Below is a list of suggested “tough” or discriminated against dog breeds (ALL of these breeds have either had restrictions put on them, or have been flat-out banned in many states and provinces around the world).


American Pit Bull Terrier - Lizardbeth

American Staffordshire Terrier - Phreakie_Teiris

Staffordshire Bull Terrier - Jaxx Blackfox

Bull Terrier (The White Cavalier) - Tascun

American Bulldog - Jaxx Blackfox

Perro de Presa Canario

Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff)

English Mastiff - Balaa (possibly Rottie as well)

Bull Mastiff - Balaa

Neapolitan Mastiff - Jessie T. Wolf

Dogue de Bordeaux (from the movie Turner and Hooch)

Fila Brasileiro

Tosa Inu - Calikat

Rodesian Ridgeback - Reiji

Rottweiler - Orca Blue

Doberman Pinscher

Dogo Argentino

Boxer - Bloodhound Omega & Louisa

Grate Dane - Firebringer (possibly Shar-pei as well) & Iron Raptor

German Shepherd Dog - Redstorm (possibly Jack Russell Terrier as well)

Belgian Malanois - Frisket17

Siberian Husky - Cyberwulfe

Alaskan Husky - Timothy Albee

Alaskan Malamute - Wicked Sairah (possibly Shiba Inu as well)

Akita - Scully Raptor

Jindo - Likeshine (possibly Doberman as well)

Chow Chow - Dream Runner

Shar-pei - Orca Blue


If anyone is interested in any of the above mentioned breeds, please either post a reply, or send me an e-mail to wlfdog @ hotmail.com. If you see two names beside a breed, it can no longer be chosen. I will continue to post names beside the breeds so that others can see which breeds are already taken.

I’ll keep y’all posted. :)

Current Mood: creative

If the CD gets done, you may get a copy, sure. :) As for cons, it's looking like AC is out for me this year. But I will most likely be attending Eurofurence and Midwest Furfest this year.

Actually, so it seems, most known artitst _are_ female. *snickers* But people are easy to persuade that you're a guy. *toothy grin*

As for the portfolio: I'd like to enter in it, in case you'd like me to. :> I should have time for at lease on piece.

I would be honored if you would join the portfolio! ^__^ Just let me know which breed you are interested in drawing, and I will put you straight up on the list. I am trying not to repeat breeds, if I can help it, so it will be on a first come, first serve basis. Tim and I already have Husky and Neapolitan Mastiff. I've added other suggested "tough" breed above, as an edit to my post. Check them out, and let me know which you'd like to do. Thank you! ^^ *hugs*

Not just female artists - females in general. And its not the spelling - even with a name like "cassandra" I still get gender-bent on a regular basis ;)

And since you mentioned art... um... did you ever color my badge?

No. O__O Yours is still one of four that I need to get colored before AC. I won't be attending AC this year (Tim's going through the whole Immigration process... yay) but I can get yours mailed out to you before then, so that you have it for the con. I also need to pick up a new laminating machine, because I had to leave my mom's back in Toronto.

"Are female artists in the fandom REALLY that uncommon??"

Not by a long shot.

PIT BULL! I CLAIM PIT BULL!!!

Oh, and FYI my boyfriend's company encrypts DVDs, does the menus and interfaces, etc. Just figured I'd throw that out there in case you were interested in that :)

American Pit Bull Terrier is yours! I will put your name on the list, and make sure to keep an eye out for the LJ Community post. Thanks for coming on board, Liz! And that DVD info is handy - thanks for the offer!

By the way, are you and Jen pretty close still? I'm a bit embarrassed to ask her, but I would be delighted if she might consider coming onto this as well. I've always loved her art. Do you think you could ask her for me...? O__O

Which one do you want the most? I'm guessing Staffie? ;) Lemme know asap, and I'll add your name to the list. If no one else chooses AmBulldog, then you can do both if you'd like. :)

Hey! I'm speaking for good ol Melissa/Frisket17... She's tentatively down for doing the Belgian Malanois. More info to come!

Thanks a bunch, Nall! Lemme know as soon as you can, if it's a for sure, so that I can add Mel's name to the list. I don't think Malanois will be chosen by anyone else, (at least the percentage is pretty low) so I'm sure that it won't get snatched if Mel really wants it. :)

By the way, it's looking like AC will be a no go for me this year as well... Tim's going through the whole Immigration thing and can't leave Canada for the next little while, until all of the paperwork is done. I am NOT missing MFF this year though, since it's going to be the last time that con will be held in that hotel!! O__O

Sounds fun, I should be able to help.

German shepard, I guess, as the current kid is part shephard.
I also love staff bull terriers, tho I think they may be taken.

Do other countries class Jack Russels as a "bad" breed as well? Or just the UK? They are watched as "dangerous dogs" even for their small size.

I'll put you down for GSD then, and if you'd like to do a Jack as well, you may. :) Just because it's not on my list, doesn't mean you can't submit it. I know Jacks are known to be fiesty little terriers! O__O

I'd be interested! And of course since my parents breed and show English Mastiffs and I'm surrounded by massive amounts of drool...err fluff..I'd be inclined to take that breed as my first choice :).
