    I'm stepping down as Art Co-Leader

    This is not the result of a sudden event, and has instead been something that I've gradually come to accept. Don't have the same drive as when I first got the position, which coupled with less time to spend around this place means that my duties with this position become lacking as well. Thus, I...

    I felt it was time for a general discussion thread regarding the state of Smeargle's Studio and what all of our lovely users can suggest to improve our corner of the forums.

     Fakemon Central (read the rules in the OP)

    It occurred to me the other day that we didn't have, and never seems to have had, a thread dedicated to general fakemon designs. So here it is. What I'd like to see WIPs, finished designs, sketches, sprites, any stage or form of the visual presentation of your design. Constructive critisism...

    Sticky Arterview suggestions

    The arterview is an article series that goes way back in Smeargle's Studio, and I have no intention on abandoning so far. However, it's been some time since the last one (two months to be precise, hoo boy), so I'm gonna take this opportunity to ask our community two questions: Who would you...

     Improving the Studio's Hub

    In the beginning, Alchemator and Birkal made a section exclusively for Smeargle's Studio, or something that nowadays would be referred to as a 'hub'. The primary idea was to create an index of all badged artists and samples of their work, and while that did happen, it's now something that's been...

     Frontpage Art Contest: The winners!

    As the art leader of Smogon, this contest has been exciting to both manage, follow, and in the end judge the results closely. It has also been one of the most nerve-wrecking, since this is arguable the first time where I've been required to decide which participant is above the other, even when...

    Yilx is now banned from the studio

    After weeks of consideration, the Smeargle Studio council (Art Leaders + moderators) have unanimously decided to ban the artist Yilx from using the studio, resulting in the immediate lock of his thread. This artist has been with us for a very long time, but given the development during these...

    We are going to remove Smeargle's Studio

    since we want to put it in the Participate section. For the longest time, maybe even as long as long as these forums have existed, Smeargle's Studio has been found in the Socialize section. Because further back in time, this forum was more of a place to share one's interests and hobbies, but...

    Gen VI brought plenty of changes that benefited mons from earlier gens, be it a new type, new ability or even their own mega evolution. And then there are some other changes where the affected mon can perform better than usual, but may not have improved to such an extent that it'd warrant a...
