Contributor Rules

Information about contributing art..

Being an advanced manipulation group, high standards must be upheld. When accepting art look for a definite light source, a grounded subject and of course, everyone's favorite, shadows. Does the focal point work for the manip, is the subject well placed on a background that 'fits'? Is the manip not overly blurred or dark? All in all, we're looking to only accept the best.

When voting, we put the utmost care into our decisions. If we decline your work, we're required to state a reason. If a contributor fails to state a reason for the decline on more than 3 consecutive, or 5 cumulative votes they will be demoted to member status. As stated above, we're here for growth, not to diminish the work of others.

When getting critiqued on a submission through the voting process please understand that we're here to help you improve and realize that though every piece is a work of art in and of itself, not all submissions are accepted into the group. Simply because one of your pieces was not accepted does not belittle you as an artist, it just gives you room and area to grow. Please be civil when accepting a critique and realize that everyone is required to voice their opinion when denying artwork. If you feel you are being mistreated please send us a civil message and we will look into it.

Last words..

Be courteous and kind to others. We're all graphic artists looking to get even better, we're not here to fight and attack each other.

If you have an issue with a member, please take it up with them in private. This is a graphic group, not a battle field. Graphic submission pages are there to maturely discuss the positives and negatives of a graphic, not to duke it out for all you're worth because you dislike another member. If you argue/attack/harass/etc members on the submission pages I'll send you a warning, but if it continues, as much as it pains me to do so, you will be removed











Standards & Guidelines
Our Contributor Rules

Joining as a member!

Anyone is free to join as a member, there is no voting on it, you're simply accepted. With a 'Member' status you are not only a valued watcher of the group, but you'll also be included in the multiple contests, giveaways and raffles we hope to host in the future. You will also be notified of any and all art submissions and blog entries. Members cannot contribute art to the featured folder, if you are interested in submitting your artwork please consider joining as a 'Contributor' or if you feel you are not quite up to standard then consider joining our sister group prequimanipulate. See more about this below!

Joining as a contributor!

Our contributors are those artists who fall under the advanced spectrum of manipulation. equimanipulate is a group for the elite and being so we must hold our contributors to a high regard. In order to be considered for the Contributor's status we ask that you have at least 5 or more manipulations in your gallery of advanced quality. By submitting a request to join as a contributor you're accepting the fact that you will be constructively critiqued. We're a group for improving for the better and we fin one of the best ways one improves is through peer review.

When requesting to join as a contributor, we vote in sections of 5. You need either 5 votes yes to join or 5 votes no to decline. As stated above, we have high standards and the first few people to comment will give critique and insight as to what needs to be improved before being voted in as a contributor. All repetitive voter comments will not be seen by you, but they will be seen by us. We encourage all members who are declined to please keep at it, don't feel let down and keep pressing forward. We all started somewhere and it's those of you who don't give up and keep at it that turn into some of the bests artists out there.

Not advanced yet?

If you're overwhelmed by all that information and don't feel that you're ready for this, consider joining our sister group prequimanipulate. prequimanipulate is aimed at helping those who are of a beginner or intermediate level of photomanipulation improve into the higher levels. We'll offer friendly advice and support or nothing at all if that's what you'd prefer!

Does this group take commission requests for Equine Photo Manips that can be used on a RPG page? Please send me a personal Message if so. Thanks!

The group as a whole doesn't, but you're welcome to contact individual members as TheIceViking said. :love:

I won't speak for the group, but I doubt it. I recommend reaching out to specific artists as the work is not made specifically for the group. Definitely look through the contributors of the group and choose an artist that you like and go from there (:

I just joined the group but there's no way to submit anything in any of the folders... Is this normal? ò.ò They're all "closed" in some way...
aliyaahgrl Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You have to be a contributor to submit art, not just a member. Maybe that's it?
Ulfeid3 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
For sure is that XD My bad...
