Hi and welcome to the redrawing school department,

What we have prepared for you here is a structured opportunity to pick up all the skills required to become a redrawer and join our team. We have set up tests and training pages, which you'll need to pass while acquiring new knowledge, applying it and showing us your dedication, passion and timeliness. We have pretty much everything set up for you; several tutorials and redrawers with years and years of experience under their belts who are here to provide help, feedback and answers to your questions.

What we need from you is to realize what you're really signing up for here. Redrawing is a skill that, like all skills out there, needs to be acquired with time, by practicing it week after week. By applying, you're making a commitment to stick around - long term - and the only way you will get pages to work on beyond this school / education unit is by being around when we work on chapters. The most important times are Sundays at 11pm-3am PDT and Wednesdays 11pm-7am PDT, with some pages available on Thursdays and Fridays 11pm-3am PDT, although there are usually some monthly and irregular projects sitting about just waiting for redraws to be completed as well. 

I'll be very open with you here; running this school along with working on weekly chapters is a lot of effort for us and we need you to understand that. We're both making a commitment here - you, to sticking around and being around and available when needed and us, to teaching you, giving you feedback for all your pages and ensuring that we bring you up to the same level as the rest of our team. 

Please only continue on if you're truly committed to joining the team and are confident that you will be very regularly available to help with our weekly series for a long time ( > 12 months) after passing the school. 

Still here? Alright, good. Awesome. Here's what you need to do now:

Click to download this file, the password to open it is: 6zgedf4hd - follow the instructions text file in it. Once you're done with that, create a new thread in this forum section, title it with your username and the time zone you're in. Tell us about yourself, your age, your current occupation, when and how much you'll likely be available, prior scanlation experience, overall Photoshop experience, your motivation to join us and anything else you think would be important to mention. Yes, you will absolutely need Photoshop for this; any version higher than CS2 should work. And don't forget to share the link to your test result!

We'll get back to you as soon as possible and we hope you'll enjoy yourself throughout the experience. Smile
