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 Paint.net, 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!
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
