as a Smooching Serpents Artist!
Share your beautiful art and receive free pre-releases in return!
How it works:
- Fill in the application form at the bottom of this page and submit it to us. As work samples any kind of SL Photography or Machinima is fine.
- If you qualify as a Smooching Serpents Artist, we will contact you and add you to our Smooching Serpents Artist Group inworld.
- Members of this group receive 2 free products (freshly upgraded items or even pre-releases!) every month by touching the Gift Box Icon at the store entrance (see picture below).
- When you have received the inventory folder named *Smooching Products for Photo Shoots*, your job is now to take beautiful photos of the given products while enjoying them. Have fun and be fucking creative!
- Select up to 6 pictures and drag&drop (while holding CTRL) them onto the Mailbox Icon. Format: aspect ratio 16:9, 1024dpi width, jpg or png, full permissions. Other formats will not be accepted. If your artwork is a machinima piece, please drop a notecard with a link to the video.
- By dropping your artwork into our mailbox, you agree that it may be used for our advertising and promotion, and therefore re-contextualized or post processed.
- If your work is chosen for our advertising, you will be rewarded L$1000 for every picture and L$5000 for every video we publish and given credit on our Blog and Marketplace announcements.
- If you have not distributed any artwork for over a month, you will be removed from the Smooching Serpents Artist Group. You can apply again any time.
The Artwork we are looking for:
- High Quality graphics, Ultra with ambient occlusion and shadows
- Playing with light: Night shots or sunset/sunrise, plus local point lights set up by the artist
- Playing with the design options of the piece (if it’s 6 pics, use 6 different texture/color settings)
- Calm backgrounds that don’t compete with the product. Really cool would be a creative scene with a narration
(Or maybe I even go back to a blank background, if I see that it doesn’t work out)
- Diversity in avatars: 99% of SL avatars are white, heterosexual and in their twenties. I would like to have models that aren’t!
Please give me people of color, LGBTs, MILFs, chubby or twiggy or even furries with crazy costumes!
(e.g. if I sell an Oriental belly dance stool, it needs a middle eastern looking dancer, not a blond one…)
- Avatars shouldn’t be giant or tiny though. Medium sized avatars usually fit best.
- Format: aspect ratio 16:9, 1024dpi width, jpg or png (other formats will not be accepted)
- Distributed photos have to be full permissions
- If you send a video link, it must be accessible to the public and include an embed code
If you have any questions, please contact Smoochling inworld.
