Hello OCTFollowers!

Are you looking to improve your OCs? Do you need a push to get you down the path of drawing on a deadline?  Look no further than :iconoc-training:.

OC-training is a 13 week program that focuses on exercising drawing skills and developing OC personality and background. It also contains a lot of positive interaction between participants - fun, encouragement and in-depth feedback. Any reliable deviant is welcome. Second round starts this coming Monday 24th November 2014, but you can join in at any time. If you're interested in practicing with your character before you formally enter an OCT, check it out!

Update! Itching for a Pokemon battle? Ready to try out that new Digivice? Upcoming OCTs based on existing franchises will now have their own page! Please bear with us while we make adjustments. If your OCT seems to be on the wrong list, please let us know.

:iconrebellion-oct: REBELLION OCT now In Progress! Thanks to anybody who checked it out.

Hi everybody.  I am here today to talk to you about our Wanted Ads. Yes, isn't it really cool that you have a place to recruit volunteers and look for work?  I sure thought so. :D

However, I would like to make a few observations. These may seem like common sense, but they bear saying anyway, so please read them.
  1. Classifieds are only useful if there are people actively looking for work. That being said, we have a lot of groups & OCTs looking for help, and it seems like many of them do not find it from this group.  I can't force anybody to help when they aren't willing, but I would like to make a simple request of our watchers & members: Please look through our Wanted Ads, and see if you can volunteer.  OCTs don't work unless we work together, so please take a look and see if there's anybody you can help!.
  2. If you have posted a Wanted Ad ever, please let us know when your needs have been filled.  I don't want to institute a blanket policy like, "We will remove all ads that are more than 8 weeks old," but if you can't be bothered to maintain communication with us when you find what you are looking for, then we can't be bothered to maintain your ad. :D
That's all for this announcement.  Until next time~ :wave:

  • :iconnightmare-grotto-oct: NIGHTMARE GROTTO --Accepting Auditions-- added 22 Dec
    Hosted by: MidnightCootie & ForegoneConclusion
    Accepted Media: Comics, Flash, & Literature
    It all started as a simple costume party, but instead of festivities, you're drugged and knocked out. You wake up in a place that you've never seen before. There's magic and monsters like you never could have imagined to be possible. The longer you stay, the more you become like the foul denizens of this cavern. Your mission? To escape. The catch? Only one person can. Fight for your freedom and solve the puzzle of this mysterious dream-like world, before you lose your humanity and become stuck in the Nightmare Grotto forever.
  • :iconmemory-oct: MEMORY OCT --Under Construction-- added 22 Dec
    Hosted by: Venom-master
    Accepted Media: Visual Media
    For past seven days you have been losing your memories constantly, from precious emotional ones to simple knowledge of how to use a spoon. The whole world is in panic caused by the massive global amnesia. The only way to reverse this process is killing the witch who caused it and be the single person to pull the trigger.
  • :iconrendells-request-oct: RENDELL'S REQUEST OCT --Under construction but accepting OC references-- added 10 Nov
    Hosted By: krazykez
    Accepted Media:  written content only, no other media
    People go missing everyday, whether via an innocent sounding invite to attend a party or being forcibly kidnapped.
    You most certainly didn't expect to be one of them!
    Now one way or another you find yourself in an large, impressive stately home in the middle of nowhere at the request of your host - a man who identifies himself only as 'Rendell'.
    Things take a turn for the worst when you discover that the perimeter fences encircling the grounds of the estate are surrounded by a powerful and effective force field, not to mention being patrolled by guards.
    No-one will be leaving anytime soon it would seem!
    Who is this mysterious 'Rendell'? Why is he keeping you here?
    More importantly - can you find a way to escape and live to tell the tale?
    Only time will tell...

Hello, fellow OCT lovers!  I'd like to show you Dog-Eat-Dog-World, a gritty superhero OCT that is currently accepting auditions!  If you like tense, original OCTs at all, please check us out!  We currently have over three weeks left in our audition time; just enough time for an entry!  Thank you so much, and happy sketching! [Only posted this because I didn't see us on the 'Latest Updates' journal.  Don't mean to spam!]
Quick question: are animated entries ALWAYS supposed to be in a flash format? If not, is it generally discouraged? Because in order for me to use voices and sounds, I can only make avi files and share them via YouTube... unless it's possible to upload avi files.

I dunno. I'm a newbie.
