jacieleigh: (Art My Fic By Solariana)
[personal profile] jacieleigh
[livejournal.com profile] art_my_fic is a place where writers can ask for help from artists, or artists can offer their help to writers.

This is multi-fandom, so all are welcome.

Please spread the word to any fandom artists or authors who may be interested. This is the sort of community that will only work with participation, so we need members to make this happen.

I've been toying with this for years, but always thought I'd have trouble finding artists. So far a couple artists have already made offerings, so now it's getting the word out to writers! (and more artists).

It was your recent search that gave me the kick in the butt to finally do it. I hope it stays active and some good things come out of it.

Well, I'm really glad you're doing this! I personally am very grateful to have a resource to find artists now, and I'm sure I'm not alone in my feelings. :)

I've always wanted art to go with my stories, back to my last fandom. Sadly, I just am not that talented with the software (and sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the pictures online!). I muddled about myself with a couple things, but always wanted something better. I even have notes on my journal and probably AO3 profile that I'm open if anyone wants to create art for any of my stories. The only person who offered has been Rose.

That was sort of in a roundabout way. I wrote a Tony/Gibbs Christmas at Gibbs' cabin story last fall. Then one of our Reverse Bang pieces of art was submitted and would have been so very perfect for my story. I wanted to take my story down, grab the art and go. But that's not fair. The story was already posted. And I didn't get that art anyway (the art was flying this year - most of the art was claimed in less than 3 minutes!).

I mentioned to Rose how perfect that art would have been for the cabin story. Then she said if I found some background pictures I liked, she would make artwork for the story. And she did!

Our fandom artists are truly our unsung heros. They help bring our stories to life, but get so little recognition. There are people who comment to my story that they enjoyed the art. I always try to get them to comment directly to the artist, but that doesn't seem to happen very often.

Anyway, yes, I'm sure there are a lot of authors out there who would love to have art for their stories. I hope the community helps!

I read that story. It was great! And so was the art. :)

You're doing a great service starting this community. :)
