    We have a singular mission here, 'Be a place where starting concept artists can get a better chance to get into the industry'.  Absolutely all other goals, ideas and niceties are trivial.  A big reason why we have pros here, (many of which are my personal friends) is that there is a high confidence the person on the other end of their conversation is a specifically dedicated person.  If I am truly frank, I would nuke anything on this server up to the root itself if I thought it would help get someone a job, so I take the mission seriously.   Mods and I are on an endless pursuit to locate optimizations towards the primary mission.  That includes, qualifying anyone and everything against the mission.  I completely understand this is a narrow standard, and a it is a standard that is not for everyone.  If that is the case, no worries at all, there are a ton of servers out there, try a few and find a perfect fit!

You agree to use the Partners’ sites at your own risk and subject to their terms and conditions.

    Why we ban:
    Our primary pillar of this server is the ability for starting artists to become professional artists.  Nobody is above that pillar.  I have been quoted many times as saying 'Treat this server like a job interview'.   Unfortunately, sometimes people are not a fit,  It is not personal, and It does not make them a bad person.   The reason someone does not work out can be obvious at times, or it can be subtle.  The team here works extremely hard to keep this server on course, and I have to respect that effort.  If we see any individual become a source for discontent among those we trust, we will defer to respecting their efforts, quickly and concisely.   I hope everyone has a great day and I encourage exploring one of the many really cool concept art servers on discord if the pillars of this server seem like they are unreasonable.
