LGMS Coordinators Needed

09 July 2018 - 04:50 PM

Hey, guys! We're about to start planning our next LGMS cycle, and we'd love to get additional people on board to help out. :happy:


In general, LGMS coordinators need to be able to dedicate 3-5 hours a week when we're planning a new cycle, and 1-3 hours a week when a cycle is going on. Your duties include brainstorming new rounds, communicating with participants, checking entries, and making awards.


If you're an artist of any rank who's been on the site for a year or a moderator, and you'd like to join the LGMS team, please fill out the below form and PM it to me (abhorsen.).



How active have you been over the past few months?

What would make you the ideal LGMS judge? Do you have any experience planning activities, either LGMS or similar?

Last Graphic Maker Standing: Cycle 13

Last Graphic Maker Standing Cycle 13 (∞ war)


Last Graphic Maker Standing is back again - Cycle 13 will start on April 15! For those who aren't familiar with LGMS, it's a competition that TDA holds once or twice a year. Artists compete against each other in a series of challenges designed to test their technical skill and their creativity - but with each challenge, some artists will be eliminated, so you'll need to bring your best effort every time. :D


Going forward, we'll be changing a few things about LGMS. We'll be running it more often and at regular intervals. Keep an eye out for a calendar, which we'll be putting up in the next few days. :D  Since we'll be running it more often, we'll also be doing occasional themed cycles along with the more general ones we've been doing.


This will be one of of themed cycles... and we'll be starting out by doing colorizations! As you may have guessed if you're a fan of the MCU, they will be loosely related to Infinity War... but if you're not a fan, don't worry - you'll definitely be able to have fun, too. ;)


There won't be any sign-ups this cycle - to join, you'll just need to post an entry to the first round, which will be posted on (again) April 15. :happy: If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any +lgms coordinator!
