In 2012-2013 I was doing more networking than I am now, and that led to me doing business with the Collinz Room, a Los Angeles punk band with a unique Hollywood flair.
Lew Nottke and I came up with the music video for one of the Collinz Room’s original songs.
Since then, the band has gone to perform at venues around Los Angeles county and it appears they have new albums in the making.
For those interested in watching Sweet Sober by the Collinz Room, you can find the animated music video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dlr4ndapkpo

I found “Seven Arrows” on Radio Reddit, at the top of all voted-on tracks in the indie genre.
Upon listening to the track, I was instantly soothed and impressed by its 70’s classic rock atmosphere. This song could easily fit in with another decade and the genre of soft rock.
Hudson is the musician and composer behind ‘Seven Arrows’
When searched, Hudson’s only trail of video was an edited Gran Turino video that a fan had put together with his song.
To better publicize this work, I gave the artist a message asking permission to use the song for an officially certifiable music video. The aesthetics may appear to have been rushed, because they were, but I wanted something online as soon as possible that resembled the song more closely than an edited movie video.
I may not be able to give this artist the million dollar budget for a music video he has the potential for, but this is a better start than the prior fan-made version.
Whether the show be once a week, twice a month, or daily, wouldn’t you watch and participate in a show that encourages equality, collaboration and original content among the digital and pixel art communities?
I differentiate between digital art and pixel art only because of the growing pixel industry. Pixel art has a specific utility, as well as particular mediums. Digital art includes any and all art that was created through software.
I have the ability to produce such a show, but I would never be able to do it alone, without the support of said communities.
This discussion is open to opinions, helpful suggestions and support.
I feel that though many online art services exist, none of them cater to the game artists and digital artists. The traditional art form gets a decent amount of attention online. Digital art is seen less as art and consequently, gets more difficult to publicize in the art communities.
There are networking services for digital artists like indieteamup.com and Reddit.com/r/gamedev that are simple and straightforward.
What I want to join, or create if unavailable, is a website with categorized art, ability to message users and collaborate, a voting system, equal-opportunity advertisements, IRC, contests, ease of uploading content, customization of portfolio, channels for videos, comment with sub-comment system and forums.
A lot of people claim DeviantArt.com is that website, but I’ve never had a good experience on Deviant Art. The submission process is stressful. Gaining attention on DA is like trying to gain individual attention by waving to a plane at night in a crowd full of other waving people.
The community is so far apart, it’s like there’s a 1% that gets 90% of all attention and views.
(Why does that sound familiar? )
If there’s no such place that I’m searching for, I’ll have to make a note to start developing that.
