Why Join the Authentic Artist Group?
As an effort to deter art thieves and further verify the merit of an artist, ownership of the Authentic Artist title is the most distinguishing, influential and reputable positions an artist can hold while on GASR.
Being an Authentic GASR Artist means your work is deemed to have integrity, sincerity and most importantly honesty, and does not and will not result in forged or dishonest works of art. By inviting artists to involve themselves within this community of like verified artists, it serves as a way for customers and buyers to recognize and discern credible “authentic” artists from possible art thieves and scammers!
When can I apply?
Applications will be be open 24/7, 365 days of the year! Meaning you will be able to apply whenever you desire. If there are any holds on the application, it will be announced publicly as an announcement.
Who will be approving my application?
All moderators will vote on your application. They will be unbiased and just in their reasoning for voting yes or no on an application, and the majority will always win. An applicants total votes however will not be available to the applicant.

Proof of authenticity We first need 3-5+ works of art that have already been done for each category that you do.
Secondly, we will accept 2 works of art using one of the following two options in order to prove your authenticity. Regardless of the options you choose, this specific information is required for both:
All references used in order to complete the artwork.
Your entire screen must be shown in both options.
WORK IN PROGRESS SHOTS
In this first option, you will be able to prove your authenticity by taking work in progress screenshots. This collection of images should show your creative process from start to finish. Here are a couple examples of what we are expecting:
[ Decorating Process Gif by [email protected] ] [ HEY - Work in Progress GIF by David Kawena ] [ Kristen Progress Gif By CrystalCurtisArt ]
Note: While these examples do not show a full screen, this option requires your full screen to be shown.
We are requiring you complete two (2) separate art pieces for this option. You may not start the the WIP process with a sketch already done. We need to see the entire creative process, including the making of the sketch. In order to properly record your process, you should have at least 15-20 WIP images. These should be compiled into either a GIF format, or separated into an album IN ORDER.
If you need assistance on how to:

In this second option, you will be able to prove your authenticity by recording your ENTIRE screen from start to finish. This is what you should end up with:

If you need assistance on how to create a recording, please read the following wiki to help you understand the basics: [ How to make an Artwork Time Lapse ]
Reputation & Customer Service In order to gauge your presence on GASR, we will need 3 positive reviews written by different customers. These users must have ordered art from you in the past/present.
If no one has given you feedback on your work, then you’ll have to ask recent customers to give you a review. Please have them mention show what you made for them.
The reviews should be a small detailed paragraph on your service. A screen capture of the review should then be uploaded to your application.
IMPORTANT: You must be sure to ask them about your service and NOT about the quality of your artwork ( Were you polite/would they order again/ was the service provided given in a timely manner, etc)
WARNING TO ALL WHO APPLY:
Although there is no sure guarantee that an artist will always decide to remain an authentic artist, the moderators and administrative team can guarantee we will do our best and what's right by the community. With that being said, if a user obtains the title of an Authentic Gasr Artist and is found to have committed a DMCA violation, their actions will be met with consequences.
Such consequences include:
Removal of all Authentic Artist privileges The inability to apply again. (Once you lose it, it's gone.)
