The Mythical Beasts of Yore Portfolio
I know that many of you have been wondering what the current status is of this portfolio, if it's still alive or dead...And well, some time after the creation of this community, my health began to severely decline. I had less and less energy to expend on the continuation of this project, and yet I didn't want it to become defunct--a fate which has befallen several other worthy folios, sadly...For not only does this one an interesting theme (I think!), and not only does it give some lesser-known, under-appreciated artists out there a chance to participate in a portfolio, but there has been some incredibly amazing art submitted to it so far! :) Thus I appointed some other mods to help me run it, in hopes of keeping it functional, and unfortunately, they too had certain, unforeseen issues and obstacles crop up in their lives that hindered them from being able to devote much time to this (job issues, babies born, loss of internet, etc.)...
But thankfully, my co-mod charreed now seems to be able to take up the torch from me and carry it onward, so I will be stepping down as head moderator and letting her move forward with it, to do as she wishes, and if any of you still wish to participate in it, please direct all further correspondence to her. She will need to do a brand new roll-call to see who is still "on board" here, and will want to know if any of the artists who had previously sent in submissions wish to send in updated work (now that their skills have improved), and will be doing quality-control on any work that is/was submitted, be it new or old, among other tasks. So even if I may have approved the old submissions, that doesn't necessarily mean they are still approved (and that includes my own work)! It's all up to her discretion now. :) And with that said, I'll take my leave, although I will still be closely watching this community and will do my best to help out here as/if needed. :)
Best wishes to all,
