What is a request?
In the internet art world, a request is often used to explain a piece of art that is created based upon the suggestion or inspiration of another. An artist may then choose to use this idea to create a piece of artwork that promotes their skill while at the same time doing a kindness for someone who may not be an artist themselves. Requests are not demands, obligations, or commissions.
Who is working on the project?
Project Starcall has many artists working together to create quality and thoughtful works of art! As we extend the project further, we welcome any and all like-minded artists to join in the Starcall spirit!
Do requests cost money?
Requests are free, however, we encourage tipping an artist for their hard work. These projects are often done in an artist’s free time and can be just as challenging as paid work. If you cannot monetarily support them, be sure to spread the word about their kindness via social media or among friends.

Pay and legally copyright your ideas.
The creations, meaning the artwork created by our artists, are their property. The ideas remain your own. However, what happens on the internet is out of our control – sharing ideas of any kind could be a liability if you are concerned with such things. With that being said, we cannot be held responsible for what people do with the ideas, merely a place to share art. That is why a copyright is best.
How can I help make Starcall more successful?
First and foremost, thank you. I appreciate your yearning to help the cause – this project means a lot to all of us here. There are a couple of things you can do
- You can directly aid the production of Project Starcall by supporting the project via patreon! The support offered here helps cover the maintenance of the website. You’re helping the community grow while getting lots of artsy rewards in return.
- For those who are unable to make a financial commitment, I want to stress that your assistance is just as important! Promote the #ProjectStarcall tag and follow @ProjectStarcall on twitter. Be sure to share the URL to the site (starcall.sylessae.com) and what the project means to you!
I want to share the artwork created by artists on this site on my social media page. Is that okay?
Before reposting, be sure to ask if the artist has social media! For places like twitter and tumblr, you can retweet or reblog directly from their pages in order to give them some exposure. If they do not use social media and have given you permission to repost, we ask that you give credit to the artist who participated in making your project. Please also include the #ProjectStarcall tag, as well as a link to the Starcall page – more eyes on the page means more inspiration for all!
