I have this powerful craving to poke through DA communities based on semi-individual challenges, like :iconhetherev:, which is a wonderful 'import your own character to a new world and draw them getting into shenanigans' group. What I love about Hetherev is that it's still completely legit in single player mode: you don't have to rely on others to get work done, but interacting with other characters ultimately makes your stay more unique and enjoyable!

I've been chasing that tiger through various OCT communities (the likes of which you can find a bunch of through :iconoctfollowers:) but ultimately the pressure of deadlines and necessity of collaborating with (or against, really!) other artists makes that format not ideal for me. I know my limits -- I can cheer others until my face is blue and I really enjoy chatting with other artists as they go through an OCT, but I can't keep up in terms of art.

So -- I'm looking for other challenge-based communities, preferably ones where OC-imports are allowed, or at least where the premise is interesting enough that creating a native to the world is as fun as the challenges themselves! Anyone visited or belong to one such that they'd like to pass on?

Alternately, I freaking adore arger's Genetic Lab Meme and I think that I could die happy filling out challenges in a community with that premise: Insert a character, fulfill some challenges, create a genetic mashup with other inserted characters, then fulfill more challenges with the resultant 'offspring'! (Alternately, the inserted original character could take on aspects of others, but I like the idea of creating new characters in order to adapt to specific challenges.) As foggy a premise as that is, does the idea of using genetic mashups in art challenges that are not deadline-based but instead interest based (and in which interactions with other characters are optional but fun) appeal to anyone else? I've been looking for something like this for ages but haven't seen anything like it on DA yet!
