06' was the year it all started. A forum created within the limits of IMVU with an objective, of allowing members to buy, sell and request artwork related to their usage of IMVU, after years of neglect by the IMVU staff, unresolved issues and a rumor of IMVU threatening of shutting down the forum, a group from the community decided to create an off-site forum, away from IMVU.

 

In 2012, " G A S R " was born on Forumotion and lead by the very members who were involved within the community itself and understood its needs. This is where our truly story begins. In two years time, the popularity of " G A S R " increased, the demands for services flourished, and so in 2014, the barrier holding us back was lifted ! Members no longer needed to have a connection to the IMVU website to be part of this ever-growing family. The community was no longer gated and cuffed, rather opened to welcome artists of all platforms and all affiliations, displaying their works proudly.

 

By the time we celebrated our fifth year, a new set of issues appeared as a strong barrier for our development, between staff changes, neglect, and the crippling control of Forumotion, 2016 was not our best year, and this had to change !

GASR - 2012   GASR - 2013   GASR - 2014

Thankfully by the start of 2017, initiation was taken to improve the situation, a staff with fresh perspective, experience and knowledge, the idea of a rebranding thrown around, and enough motivation to break free from the restrains of Forumotion, to be able to self-host, a dream come true in August 2017. [gasrforum.net] saw the light of day as an independent community.

 

Our artistic vines, the shared love for crafts quickly found it's way far and wide across the internet, we were no longer "That IMVU forum" but an active website, encouraging artists to not only sell, but display their art for the world to see. Feature after feature, our site bloomed into a proper platform able to host and grow everyday just a bit more. "G A S R" no longer felt right, the dream of rebranding, became reality, and in 2019 Art Haven is born once more, from the ashes risen.

 

The journey started here, facing many challenges, our staff was able to overcome them, creating an ever-blooming community, rising in popularity and traffic, from buyers, sellers , even art lovers here to support and grow our family !

                                                                         Art Haven!

Anime Gifs (Loops & Edits)

 

 

Activity 1: Tell us the reason why you joined Art Haven and what was your first impression. (might over-share this one a bit hehe)

Spoiler

I first joined AH back in 2014. I had a friend on IMVU that recommended me to come here if I wanted DP art because mine was looking homemade and BUSTED lol. I originally just planned on buying one piece from the artist they recommended and being done with it. I then noticed a lot of other talented artists and started almost collecting pieces from them at that point. Around 2017 is when it became almost a daily thing where I log in to see a new art delivery. I would say 2017 is really when I started diving into the community.

At the time, my first impression was a bit all over the place. I never felt unwelcomed or anything like that but there were lots of rumors and drama surrounding the staff and some popular artists at the time on Tumblr (is that still poppin'? i haven't touched that site in ages LOL). After the site rework and helping out with it as a Beta tester as well as the first ever :gasrpriderevamp: magazine, I realized all the stuff I was shown via Tumblr about the staff was false. They were crazy friendly to me and that was the point of no return for me. I have been on almost daily since then with only small breaks in-between as I was dealing with a toxic relationship and hair school. 

As of June 2021, I joined the staff team. While I still struggle with being shy around them (due to my own trauma), they have always made me feel welcome and supported. I've never really fit in anyone online, on AH or IMVU, but I finally feel like I have a place where I belong and feel wanted.

Alright that's my ramble for today. Sorry if you've gotten this far LOL.

 

Activity 2: Were you here when it was still :gasrpriderevamp:? If so, how do you feel about the way the community has progress since? If you weren't, let us know what kind of progression you would like to see for the future of Art Haven!

Spoiler

Yes!! I think Ah has been through a lot community wise. I feel like back in 2014-2018 is was very drama-centered to the point I, someone who didn't talk to anyone on here outside of ordering art, noticed. In 2020, I noticed a big shift in community changes. It seemed like there was a lot less rumors/drama and a lot more interesting events popping up. Tbh i've been on constantly since then and love the community! I'm very excited to see the next stages of AH and all the new updates!!!

 

Activity 3: If you're a buyer: show us the first artwork you purchased and the most recent purchase. If you don't remember which one, it can be within the first year of joining Art Haven/Art Haven!

Spoiler

oh jeez, now I gotta search my IMVU photos LOL:

Snap_4Ptfu8uzwV1953896070.png.906967830e41ad44df2f334af2dda567.png

oof even with my old IMVU name. LOL! It's still super cute. Artist: old username was Banned, not sure what they go by now.

 

my most recent fav is this one:

05_astro.thumb.jpg.e6382a30fcdc067e0fd0559637a48843.jpg

it's a picture of my fiance and I's DND characters with our IRL baby girl, Eevee. Artist: Ubekeyk

 

Activity 4: Show off your favorite art piece(s) that you've purchased on Art Haven and the reason why it's your favorite.

Spoiler

Def the ones above ^ 

 

My most favorite piece of all time is this one:

02.thumb.jpg.95e744fad02c0cddcd07f76f51644285.jpg

 

There's not really any meaning behind it other than the aesthetic and everything about it was just so spot on. Even the kitty's expression I mean LOOK AT IT LOL. Ubekeyk always more than impresses me with their art and I love how they capture each of my OCs

 

Another Fav:

any piece by Yeorin hehe

yeorinusethisone.gif.4fa72d79b128e43281c4da4c7f819cd4.gifdesfbx9-5f9c16e3-08b5-49ad-976b-8113fdd1f63e.gif.ec4bbcafa01911ddc493b7a778fdf63d.gifDP.gif.dd2b9d1ac8da5809b12dc268327ab6fc.gif.054fc71355c8a2003f8a1b0344f0fdd4.gifdetzmum-8c792f72-e3af-4fc2-97d2-a25165bdf2b1.gif.64c23ea1d6b7383494e2ae7e343045b0.gifdeutmbd-aa865ad8-ae25-4f5c-abde-d9dc8195ae46.gif.8bc4403d1740a69761eab928a43f1288.gif

 

idk what to say other than CHEFS KISS. I've been a fan of their art for a long time so I've def been on a bit of a Yeo-spree lately lol

 

obs there is a lot more artists I love and shout out too everyone who has done art for me!! i have cherished every piece and oc:blove:

 

Activity 5: Who would be your top 5 favorite artists on Art Haven? 

Spoiler

Who would be your top 5 favorite artists on Art Haven? 

 

THIS IS SUCH A HARD QUESTION ASSDGJKFL;SDLLF;

 

In no order: ubekeyk, yeorin, lynn, shnookums, & kittenspell

 

Activity 6: What is one of your favorite event(s) from Art Haven and tell us why it's your favorite! (It can be from any year!)

Spoiler

Tbh any event that is writing or non-artist orientated is always up my ally! I've never been super talented in the art department other than acrylic pouring (cuz it's easy LMAO). Like this one! I love writing so I would love to see more writing events and coloring book pages for sure!!

 

Activity 7: Did you make new friends, join new groups, etc?

Spoiler

Listen... I'm very very shy lol. I've always struggled making friends ever since getting bullied in middle school (sad music plays LOL). While I can't say i've made a big group of close friends, I can say that I've made a hand full and I have been getting better at talking and stating my opinion when it's needed from the staff. I would love to make those personal relationships grow more, and the only thing stopping me is myself. 

 

Activity 8: Tell us about the OC's you've made/bought since you've been here that is your absolute favorite!

Spoiler

Oof it's hard to choose. One that's been around since 2017 is Rain:

yeorinusethisone.gif.4fa72d79b128e43281c4da4c7f819cd4.gifctsm_astro_dp.gif.1b49d38b385276616a8c135a5f5e10ed.gifdem9j04-8bc8efd6-2e85-4968-a636-f637658d7398.png.97b674de4487002b511d19ab3e200eae.png

1. yeorin                              2. ubekeyk                        3. mint

 

She's a cutie alien girl designed by Chai here on AH. She's been the most consistent OC that has been around the longest and that I still use. and I can't have the name Astro without some cute alien OCs!!! lmao

 

Activity 9: What is your favorite memory of Art Haven so far?

Spoiler

Joining the staff team for sure. I was always pressuring myself to make friends on here and I thought the best way to do it was through applying for a staff position. BOY WAS THAT THE RIGHT MOVE. lol As I have said above, I still struggle internally with being shy and guarded. I'm hoping to become more open to new experiences and people and therapy has been helping a lot for that. I'm just excited for AH's new adventures and seeing where it takes us!

 

Activity 10: What kind of art style do you normally order/draw on Art Haven? And has it changed since you joined?

Spoiler

NAH lol. I am a big ol' anime fiend and it hasn't stopped or slowed down LMAO. Now, I just have the anime bbs tattooed, that's the only difference. :fingerguns:

Activity 1:Tell us the reason why you joined Art Haven and what was your first impression

Spoiler

I joined Art Haven back in 2015 when the old website was up after finding out that their is an actual website and art community that existed.  It was really cool to find a place where i could meet others like myself. a few months before joining art haven i had started ordering art from a couple of friends but i wasn't fully aware of the community and website existing as a whole. My first impression was i genuinely didn't understand how to use the site and it took a lot of browsing and learning from seeing how others did things. It was a bit intimidating at the time but after i while i got used to it ( a while being about a year into having an account lol)



Acivity 2: Were you here when it was still :gasrpriderevamp:? If so, how do you feel about the way the community has progress since? If you weren't, let us know what kind of progression you would like to see for the future of Art Haven!
  

Spoiler

Yes! i was  i feel like the community has grown massively since it was first Art Haven. The staff have always been friendly but it's great to see more events hosted and everyone just all around being a safe space for art buyers and artists alike

Actvity 4: Show off your favorite art piece(s) that you've purchased on Art Haven and the reason why it's your favorite. 
 

Spoiler

it's really hard to pick a favorite but these three are my favorite pieces i have purchased off of here . the first by Ayumi it is one of a more recent piece i got it last year but it was such a pleasure working with her on a piece. She is one artist i look up to and she is so kind to talk to about anything even if you are having a really tough time in general.  the second piece is by my very talented friend Baah. it was my very first piece i ever bought from here and it is part of what started to make our friendship bloom, to this  day i still am so very thankful to be good friends with her and have the oppurtunity to watch her art continue to get better and better. the last is by Krovav one of yet another my favorite artists. i get very picky with artists doing dark styled ocs yet he always nails it and he is so patient and great to work with.

I'm not sure what you mean exactly.. but hopefully these gifs will explain it better! You can't really edit the text on the spoiler itself. And it will look different while you're editing the post compare to when you hit submit/save!

 

This is how it looks when you're editing it:

Happy 10th Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary Love GIF by CBC

 

Tell us the reason why you joined Art Haven and what was your first impression.

Spoiler

I actually don't 100% remember why I joined I think I'd heard about it on imvu because a friend mentioned it so I was more curious than anything. My first impression was mixed, I didn't really know anyone on site and navigating at the time was a little confusing for me. Obviously, the good outweighed the bad though cause here I am :eue:

 

Were you here when it was still "G A S R" ? If so, how do you feel about the way the community has progress since? If you weren't, let us know what kind of progression you would like to see for the future of Art Haven!

Spoiler

I was here when it was :gasrpriderevamp:, I think I joined back in 2014. I love seeing all the new faces, when I first joined I remember there were quite a few members on site already but now I'm constantly seeing usernames of new artists, buyers, etc. that I've never seen before :cutehehehaaas: it makes me so happy that we have so many members now that can appreciate the community.

 

If you're an artist: Show us the first artwork you made when you first joined Art Haven and show us the most recent artwork you've done, or redraw the first artwork! 

Spoiler

This is embarrassing LOL

Back in imvu days, I think I started learning digital in 2015

image.pngimage.png

 

Now:

IMG_0125.jpegIMG_0126.jpeg

 

 

If you're a buyer: show us the first artwork you purchased and the most recent purchase. If you don't remember which one, it can be within the first year of joining Art Haven/Art Haven!

Spoiler

I bought this back in 2014 I believe, a month or so after joining. I still love this piece sm, it was the first one I got testing the :gasrpriderevamp: waters and :gettingaway: she spicy, I don't get art of her anymore tho and now I'm wondering why lol

whitebackground.png

 

I bought this one a few weeks ago and am in love with it :cutehehehaaas:

Show off your favorite art piece(s) that you've purchased on Art Haven and the reason why it's your favorite.

Spoiler

I have so many favorites it's hard to choose! The first two are special to me, my demon OC Ramona and my persona (ig that's what it's called?? it's basically me but perfected) the last three are just :cutehehehaaas: so pretty, they're all artists I adore.

If there's one thing you'd like to see on Art Haven, what would it be?

Spoiler

Plushies and more physical goods shops :eue: I would love to buy soap, candles, etc from people + it's kind of an addiction.

 

Who would be your top 5 favorite artists on Art Haven? 

Spoiler

@Hugyne 

@Otterkaji

@iKAN

@Arias

@princepol

@Sel

 

I haven't bought from all of them but there's artists on here that I love to following and seeing their new pieces.

I've also tried to slow myself down on buying art lately cause I'd buy it all  if I could.

 

What is one of your favorite event(s) from Art Haven and tell us why it's your favorite! (It can be from any year!)

Spoiler

The Valentines "Let's Date" event! I'd love to see something like that again, possibly more fleshed out because I thought the idea was so cute and loved the community interaction.

 

How would you describe Art Haven in one sentence or less?

Spoiler

On a serious note

A community of creative and kind individuals who all appreciate art.

 

My first thought was "artsy-fartsy" though.

 

Advice / words of encouragement for any newcomers (artists, supporters, appreciators, etc.) and/or upcoming artists.

Spoiler

If you're an artist, never stop practicing. :cutehehehaaas: Keep all of your work even if you don't like it because I promise you there's plenty of people out there that will and never stop improving. You'll get where you want to be eventually.

 

If you're supporters, you're very much appreciated here.  Artists would be lonely without you :angri: also there's some of you saying "I can't draw" or "I could never" and I'm gonna personally come after you and be your hype train because that's not true. It takes constant practice and you'll get there eventually. Don't be scared to make friends or ask for advice, that's what we have this community for.

 

Did you make new friends, join new groups, etc?

Spoiler

Some yes!

I'm very shy even though sometimes it doesn't seem like it. Joining the staff team really brought me out of my shell and I consider them all friends since we work so closely together. Especially the Event team!
