Welcome to Male Bases!

Welcome to Male Bases, home to all your male base making needs. This group is for those who want to show or make bases for KISS dolls or Pixel dolls by using either, GIMP or MS Paint.


DO's and DON'Ts

DO submit. We only accept members who have at least ONE MALE base [made or used] in their gallery.

DO NOT consider a picture you sketched that you had used a base as reference for a 'used base'. Bases are like digital paper dolls you use to dress up. THEY ARE NOT references for art [and besides that the anatomy is usually a little wonky so it's not really helping you improve as an artist ^^;]

DO participate in journals. We are trying to implement more activities for the members so this group will be more than just an archive for bases.

DO NOT just say on the comment feed that you hate traced bases or that you don't know why all these naked men are here and where are the boobs. This group is for male bases and dolls so no boobs and yes, we do approve of traced bases. GET OVER IT DAMMIT.

DO send notes to the admins if you are confused or have a problem. Leave the comment feed for the praise people! :D

DO NOT leave a link to your art and expect someone to submit it for you. The admins are busy folk and some run more than one group. If you are too lazy to submit something yourself, it just won't be in the group. End of story.

DO remember to submit to the right folder [and to send us a note with the link to it if you submit wrong].

DO NOT think that this is a male art improvement or stock group. This is for [I feel redundant] MALE BASES meaning that all the characters featured here are MALE OR FLAT CHESTED females that can easily be changed to male. This will not help you improve your art. Go to the other stock groups or tutorial groups if you need help with that.

DO remember that this is the ONLY club on DA with EXCLUSIVELY male bases. So please, have fun. ;D

Does anyone want this group? I need to clean up my groups.

It's not very active. But it's an alright collection of bases.

I ended up being given it without realizing.

I would rather give it to someone who manages other groups, but if only one person puts in a claim, they'll probably get it.

I just feel bad thinking about just deleting it...
Apparently I've been made founder! I'm not sure why or how.
But I have full control of the group. I only just noticed this.

So, I guess this is my group now? I can do whatever I want to/with it?

I can make it better? =D

Please, do comment and tell me what changes you'd like to be made. I'll do my best to get on top of them.
I know that the last founder wasn't that great and used the group for promoting other things rather than developing the group itself.

New folders? Contests? TELL ME WHAT YOU WAAAANT!!

Ahhh, quick and kind of weird question.

If a character is androgynous/not explicitly gendered (e.g. Hanji Zoe in the SnK manga), but looks more like a guy, can we still submit them? o:

"Anything that you put time/energy/effort into is art to us no matter how crappy the end result will be."
Thank you. ^^

I recently came across a base-basher site and got myself involved in some hateful comments about using bases for my work. It made me feel really crappy about my work, especially since I used bases to learn how to draw. This really helps me. Thank you. :hug:
