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!

:groups:09/21/14
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.


:groups:06/21/14 GC

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:

  • :iconthedarkageoct: THE DARK AGE -- Under Construction-- added 2 Nov
    Hosted by: TotalObelisk
    Accepted Media: Comics
    Once there lived a creature known simply as ‘The Storyteller’, a being that could create new worlds from its own stories of fun adventures and exaggerated characters. But as it grew older the stories did as well, The Storyteller grew bored of its old stories and instead began to create stories of much darker material that took its old, beloved characters and twisted them. But even this did not sate its desires forever; it soon grew bored once again but it had an idea, using its powers it began to pull others into the worlds of its stories with a simple message. “Entertain me!”
