General AoE Rules/Guidelines
Horses, Ponies, Donkey, Zedonk, Unicorn, Pegasus, Centaur, Pegacorn, or anything related to the Equus, is accepted. Humans are allowed as long as the main focus of the piece is the equine.
Any media/medium you like, the more creative the better! Please read below for gallery specifications on where to submit.
Please only ever submit your own work, not anyone else’s. This includes photography. If you use someone’s work as a reference or use of stock, please credit them on your deviation. Never steal artwork or rip someone’s work, otherwise you will be banned from the group and black listed with our affiliates!
All submissions must not contain sexual, excessive gore & horror, pornographic, racist, homophobic, bullying, hateful, triggering, defamatory material. This is a group for everyone including young members too, we do not want offensive subjects (And there is no need to, when this is an Equus group).
Deviations containing text regarding advertising/business is permitted within reason - however, deviations created for the sole purpose of advertising (i,e could be used as banners, flyers, business cards, brochures etc) are not permitted.
Please ensure the work is your best effort for that piece. We do not decline artwork often as we are open to all artistic abilities, however please consider that we want AoE to be thriving of artwork that gets feedback, this way we can help members even better. Please also ensure any scans are good quality.
PLEASE NOTE: As of June 2011, We are no longer accepting character PROFILES at AoE, along with line art. aka a single outline/very basic sketches. , for the Traditional & Digital galleries.
You MAY still submit your character artwork as long as it is not the 'profile' for them.
You may submit REFERENCE sheets to AoE, without the text ON THE ARTWORK. It will be allowed if it is in the comments only.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you are unsure on where your art fits.
Please check the gallery you are submitting to. I.e please do not submit Digital artwork to the Traditional gallery. It will be declined and you will be asked to resubmit.
Minor Computerized edits are allowed, such as clearing specs, cropping or fixing lighting on a scan.
Major edits that change the general look of the piece more, such as removing or adding content, Text, Recolouring, Adding texture, Background, is not permitted. If you have changed the piece to be significantly different, it is no longer traditional only (read below).
Minor edits are allowed, such as changing hue, contrast, lightening/darkening, cropping, and small edits.
If the piece has been manipulated to have a significant difference, such as removing or adding an object, adding texture, different backgrounds, and so on, are not allowed. This would make the piece a photographic manipulation (read below).
Please also note that photography can only be submitted if it has been taken by you. If you have photographs someone has taken of you on your horse, please submit it to the Members Own Horse folder
All tablet & mouse drawn is included, anything computer based. Any reworked subjects, including traditional large edits goes here. Please submit Gifs to the 'Other Submissions' folder.
