If you are just starting out please utilize the tutorials and help commmunities to broaden your graphic quality. There are lots of great communities out there.
1. Be respectful. (Writers work hard on their stories, but artists have the right to refuse poorly written or un-beta'd work) 2. When posting state the number of banners you are open to make (1,3,5, whatever) and give the writer(s) and estimated time of the banners completion. 3. Try to remain as close to the writer(s) original request as you can. 4. When posting artwork, place banners behind cuts and include a link to the story. 5. Show a sample of your work. (either a link to your art or a sample behind a cut)to show the writer(s) your style of banner, some writer(s) may have a certain style they are looking for and this will help to determine if your styles go together. 6. Include any pairing/grouping/situations/ratings that you are not willing to do. ______________________________________________________________________________________
