Welcome, one and all!What is a Gentleman of Science?
He is a man who takes his studies to a serious depth, and is known for his work- whether he be revered or infamous, tales of his exploits have traveled through gossip and paper alike! These are men who may uphold a very swell reputation (good or bad), are civilized and (usually) well-mannered, and above all are absolutely dedicated
to their science!Who may be considered a Gentleman of Science?
Well, if you'd fancy a few examples.. Dr. Henry Jekyll of London, for instance, a renowned chemist and physician, as well as Victor Frankenstein, whom is infamous for his monstrous creations. Mr. Griffin, otherwise known as the Invisible Man, is another grand example. Mind you, these are merely examples!Anything I should know before submitting art?
'Gentlemen of Science' mostly pertains to the Victorian era (1837-1901) but we have folders for modern scientists, female scientists, and original characters!
It's fine if you've made your own interpretation of a classic character, and it's fine to submit art from a movie, book or musical! We're not too stiff about portraying one or the other.
If you have an original character, feel free to submit them to the right folder! When submitting original characters, please keep handy a description in the artist's comments as to their profile. I'd like to know their story!
If you have any questions, any at all, please send me (~qui-non-stultus
) a note!
Here's a little guide to what goes where..
Original Characters- a gallery for scientists of the Victorian Era, so long as they are original. If they're more modern, they'll also end up in the 'Modern Scientists' folder.
Classic Scientists- a gallery for scientists from different stories, that end up in the same picture, like Jekyll with Frankenstein or the Traveler with Griffin.
Dr. Frankenstein and Creature- As the title suggests, only pictures having to deal with interpretations of Dr. Frankenstein and his creations are permitted. It's fine if it's JUST Dr. Frankenstein or JUST one of his monsters.
Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde- This gallery is devoted to the ever-fantastic Dr. Henry Jekyll and his infamous Mr. Edward Hyde. Any and all interpretations of these characters should end up in here- even if it's JUST Mr. Hyde.
The Invisible Man, Griffin- If you've got an interpretation (not an original character) who is also known as the 'Invisible Man' who isn't Griffin, he can end up in here too. This includes Rodney Skinner, the Hollow Man, etc.
Time Traveler- This one's pretty basic. Time Travelers (non-OC) through literature end up here.
Victorian OCs- Do you have an original character that qualifies as a Gentleman of Science? They would go right here, in this snug little folder. The more modern scientist OCs, however, would end up in 'Modern OCs'.
Modern OCs- As the title goes, more modern scientists- or futuristic -end up in here, so long as they're original characters! We do accept non-Victorian age scientists, afterall. Also, if there is a more modern interpretation of any of the above-stated classic characters, it may also end up in this folder as well.
Female Scientists- Requested by a member, a folder for female scientists, no matter the era, be they fictional, real or an original character!
Real Gentlemen of Science- Do you have something pertaining to Davinci? Maybe some writings relating to Jung? Here's the place to stick it. c:
