What video service do you use?

Each model uses a different video service. The most common option we see is Zoom, then Google Meet. Feel free to Contact the Event Organizer to learn more details about their upcoming session if you have any questions.

Who are the models?

Models around the world use Silhouette & Shadow as a platform to share virtual drawing opportunities. They come from a variety of places & backgrounds! Anyone can create a session & share it on our calendar. To learn more about each model, make sure to check out their profile & the social media links they’ve shared there!

How do I join a session?

When it’s time for the session to start, go back to the event page, copy the provided password & click ‘Join Session’, which will take you immediately to the video meeting.

Can I take screenshots?

For our model’s privacy, no images or videos from the site can leave the site without the model’s strict consent. During virtual sessions, models have the option to allow screenshots & the conditions of those references. Each event page will share the model’s policy on this. Always read the session details to find out the expectations from that session. Absolutely no imagery from the video library or any virtual drawing session can be shown off-site. Only the work you create can be shared from your time with Silhouette & Shadow! Failure to comply with these expectations will result in removal from the community.

Who moderates the session?

The models are in charge of their sessions. They Dj, moderate, time poses, move cameras and chat with members. It’s a lot of stuff to do, so please listen to updates and follow directions while you are in session. Writing suggestions in the Zoom chat feature is a great way to communicate with the model about any updates.

What is the etiquette for a virtual session?

We’re all here to make some art, so here are some codes of conduct to help it run smoothly.

1. Keep your camera on during breaks and while the model is talking.

2. Mute your mic while the model is posing.

3. Only take screenshots if the model allows and always tip their requested amount.

4. Share your work and tag S&S and the model!
