There is some good stuff to be had. I'm a visual person, so seeing something will often times spark an idea.

I appreciate SWAG as I have zero artistic ability.

I am hoping that we eventually get the means to post images directly from our PCs to the forums. If so, I will have some artwork from time to time.

At the risk of sounding conceited, my art is similar in type and quality to Dredwulf's, but I only work in dry media at the moment (don't have the resources to splurge for an art tablet as of yet... maybe sometime in the near-mid term).

Didn't SWAG used to have a filter option? I'm not too keen on thumbing through a thousand pics of somebody's character to find cool ship ideas.

Why not post your images to SWAG?
There is no longer a formal vetting process.

They are working to get the filtering back. I agree it loses a lot of use for the RPG community without it.

The closest you can get to a search at present is to find an image of something.

On the right hand side there will be a list of 'tags' that the artist has selected.

If you click on one of them it will then show you other images with the same tag.

This is dependent on the artist who uploads it giving it all appropriate tags.

I myself was never very throrough in assigning tags.

ie a pic of a mandalorian I gave a tag of 'Mandalorian'.

What I should have done was tag it:
Mandalorian
Character
Male
Armor
Blaster Rifle
Humanoid
etc

But when I made most of my submissions, the site still had a working search option.

Shoot: I never tagged any of my stuff. Not sure how far back the "tagging" option goes, but mine were submitted some 15 years ago. I've resigned to the possibility that they are gone for good, tbh.

On of the things i miss about the site, is how you used to be able to search specific artists.. Cause one of my drawings from way back, a walker of mine, is now no longer there, and i can't remember who drew it...

The swagonline.net link isn't working. Is the site down again? Or has it officially been moved to deviant art?

It was up yesterday; I just accepted an art request.
But it is down at the moment for me too.

Yeah, it works for me too. RR, that's too bad you can't access it.
