Work For Hire
Lost article found again! It sounds innocuous, but the term 'Work For Hire' is one that every artist should know backwards and forwards before they sign any contract. This article By Ellen Million is now again listed and available at FARP, after being... well.. lost... Go Read!

Cleaning up the FARP
I am currently cleaning up all FARP articles, making sure they are readable and follow a shared style, and that they're acredited to the right elfwood member and placed in the right area, etc, etc.
This will take a while,but I am already through all of the Art sections, now working with the writers section.
I have noticed that the FARP area has lagged behind, that's why I am doing this. The next step would be to implement a new process on how to get new articles in place, etc.

Help Elfwood to Improve
The tutorial section, FARP, has always been a much appreciated part of Elfwood. We are going to make it even better and one of the improvements will be to feature tutorial type film clips in the tutorial section.
There are already many good ones at youtube.com, and we are going to display them in our tutorial section. Now we would like tips on nice YouTube tutorials that align with our tutorial section and would be useful for our visitors. Here is an example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpSqCr8P1Hs&eurl=http://www.elfwood.com/farp/airbrush.html
If you want to submit a film clip tutorial yourself, just upload the clip and send us the link for review.
Please use this mail address to propose clips: farp(a)elfwood.com
