Group Info

Hello! :wave:

Here, we love Nintendo and all their memorable games: Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, Kirby, Pokemon, Pikmin, Star Fox, etc. This group is aimed towards creating fanart of a mid-high quality standard. We also aim to support, uplift and encourage artists to create Nintendo fanart and to continually grow and become better artists.

About Us

Group Standards:

1) Our main focus is motivate artists to create art and to become better artists. We expect this of admins and members alike.
2) We accept medium-high quality of art works into our galleries, except for The "Artist's Workshop," where we assist those, who have submitted there. If you're confused or concerned what we consider medium-high quality, our galleries are the perfect reference guide.
3) We ask that you submit to the correct folder, if you are completely unsure, there is the "For the Confused" gallery folder. "For the Confused" is not a first stop, but rather a last resort.
4) We do not accept explicit art works, whether sexual or gore. A rule of thumb, if it requires a mature rating, it does not belong here.

Contributor's Admin Applications:
*Note that we do not accept applications to cofounder*

1) As a contributor, you will be tasked with assisting members,, who submit artwork to the new "Artist's Workshop" gallery folder. This assistance includes, but is not limited to, critiquing artwork submitted and helping the artist to understand how they can improve.
2) As a contributor you will need to be a good artist. In order to teach others, you need to be able to show that you already understand what it means to be a good artist. The point is you can't be expected to teach what you don't yet know.
3) As a contributor, you need to want to help others become better. You're encouraged be honest, even blunt when necessary, but never overtly negative or condescending. You're purpose is not to tear others down, rather it is to show them the way to become a better artist and to support their pursuit to become better.
4) As a contributor, you will be expected to be available to help others for at least 1-3 hour each day (not including Sunday). These hours should be as regular as possible, so if a member needs help that you can be contacted.
5) As a contributor, you will have the potential to become a cofounder. Now that we're moving onto a new chapter and I feel that it's appropriate to consider a second cofounder.

JUST FYI:
IF YOUR SUBMISSION WAS DECLINED, IT WAS LIKELY:

-Mature Content too Mature for a General Ages Club/Distasteful Sexual Stuff
-Wrong Folder (most common reason)
-It's a WIP/Sketch/Not a Fully Finished, Polished Piece
-The Quality Was Not Up to Our Standards (Blurry Pics/Etc)
-It's Not Visual Art (AKA Advertising/Journals/Posts/Etc)
-It's Not Nintendo Fanart/No Canon Characters In It

Did none of these and it still got Declined anyway? Ask! Maybe we just hit the wrong button or something!

First off:
An Explanation of My Absence    Two years ago, I disappeared from DA. Some of you may have noticed others may not have. I want to apologize for that and if you will allow me, I would like to explain myself. I wasn't in the best place. I know it might sound lame, but at the time, I had made a lot of mistakes and I wasn't able to handle the ramifications. This eventually led to a loss of interest in art, something that had been central to my identity for about 20 years. As a result, I stopped logging in and disappeared.
    About week ago, after not more than a rare doodle in two years, I began to draw again and create stories. This was largely due to a cornucopia of inspiration that in times before came in the form of stop motion animation movies from the likes of Henry Selick and Tim Burton (Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, James and the Giant Peach, and Coraline). However, this time, it came by the way of video games with 1930's cartoon aesthetic or the inkblot art style (Cuphead, Be


Artist's Workshop
    I would like to reintroduce the core reason of why I created this group, four years ago. Of course, it was to honor and celebrate Nintendo and the games they've created, but my true aim has always been to encourage artists to 1) create art and 2) hone their skills as an artists.  No matter how good or bad you are, you can always improve and refine yourself as an artist. Personally, I have been drawing for about twenty years and I can say I'm a fairly good artist, but I have long to go before I can ever feel contempt in my abilities as an artist. With that said, I want to introduce a new gallery folder called "Artist's Workshop" The purpose of which will be to encourage, uplift and support artist of all skill levels. The choice will ultimately be up to you, if you want help. Please don't be prideful and refuse help, we all can get better, nobody is excempt.

Contributors Needed
    As we embark on this new chapter of our story as a group, we will be needing new contributors. For the reason that Dayo (icy-snowflakes) and I, hopefully, won't be able to do it all on our own. Initially, we will take on three new contributors and if more are needed, we'll handle that when the time comes. If you're interested in becoming a contributor, hear is the new criteria:

1) As a contributor, you will be tasked with assisting members,, who submit artwork to the new "Artist's Workshop" gallery folder. This assistance includes, but is not limited to, critiquing artwork submitted and helping the artist to understand how they can improve.
2) As a contributor you will need to be a good artist. In order to teach others, you need to be able to show that you already understand what it means to be a good artist. The point is you can't be expected to teach what you don't yet know.
3) As a contributor, you need to want to help others become better. You're encouraged be honest, even blunt when necessary, but never overtly negative or condescending. You're purpose is not to tear others down, rather it is to show them the way to become a better artist and to support their pursuit to become better.
4) As a contributor, you will be expected to be available to help others for at least 1-3 hour each day. These hours should be as regular as possible, so if a member needs help that you can be contacted.
5) As a contributor, you will have the potential to become a cofounder. Now that we're moving onto a new chapter and I feel that it's appropriate to consider a second cofounder.
