About the Gamer's NESt (SUBMISSION RULES)

The folders are divided in genres, if you are not sure in which folder to submit your art then simply pick the one you think fits your game's art best. I have never been a genre kind of man so I'm pretty flexible, don't be afraid to submit where you think is right. For Example, I consider The legend of Zelda to be an RPG but most others simply count it as an Adventure. It's all up to you...just don't put it down as a shoot'm up simply because Link can shoot with his sword at full hearts. :stare:

If you feel that the genre you wish to submit to is not available then please let me know.

I live in Europe, PAL, NTSC as well as Famicom games will all be accepted. Each region has its own unique games never released elsewhere and it's all the same system.
Please note that this is a NES only group! If you submit an artwork which has both Link from the Adventure of Link and Link from the Ocarina of Time in it I will decline said work! Game cross-overs will be accepted but obviously System cross-overs won't.
What also will NOT be accepted is random pixel art nor those t-shirt things that are floating around. Pixel art will be accepted if it really comes from or is based on actual NES games and please truly do not bother with those t-shirt submissions.
Finally, games wise, only collection photos will be accepted meaning no single cartridges unless the game is either rare or modded or if the picture is of very high quality. That goes for 3rd party systems too, I will refuse those, only normal or modded NES consoles will be accepted.


As for the community, this group is a respectful one, rude people, a-holes, trolls will all be immediatly removed from the group, no questions asked.
Also, porn, furries and yaoi will not be accepted. (Ecchi is still okay and I will accept OCs and Gijinkas when it's specified or obvious that they are from certain NES games)
We are all about reminiscing the good old times of the NES, the games we had, the fun we had and still have! It's all about sharing and interacting, this is not nor will ever be a dead group. Retro shall live on!

Welcome home everybody. :#1:

Hey everyone! :#1:

I'm really sorry for this massive inactivity these past... two years? Damn, that's longer than I would have liked for sure.

I still have many ideas for digital art, and this group WILL NEVER be a dead group! Unfortunately a couple of months ago my life got kinda torn to shreds. It's okay, I seriously came out much better. I'm honestly happy. But my current situation is kinda tight, I don't have a new laptop yet, let alone a new tablet. So art on my side is kinda dead for the time being.

I won't let this group die though! I love you guys way too much, and I'm having too much fun here always! And I love talking about NES games, our memories, and creating and looking at your art!

Recently I went on a trip to the United States, they were the 10 best days of my life!! And yes, I actually bought some NES games there, Dash Galaxy, and Xenophobe, a game that was on my list for many years now! It's so much more fun in the US! So many more options and such better prices. I still love the NES just as much as always! And once I get my sh*t together, you can count on me, just like with my cartridges, blowing new life into this group!
