Welcome to HARPG!

Harper by Horsepoint

This is the official Deviantart community
for the Horse Art Role Play Game

A fun Art-based game, HARPG encourages creativity and the on-going practice of one's art. Here in this group we encourage practicing equine art, and horses you create can be shown off here. Roleplaying horses is also a good break to get away from commissions, life or school.

We are open to, and have members of, all levels of art; from beginners, to teachers and even published illustrators. We accept all forms of HARPG-related art, including model horses, digital work, traditional pieces and photo-manipulations.

This is also a wonderful place to meet and find other equine artists/lovers on Deviantart.

Due to the success of our group, a great many sister-groups have blossomed, all ranging from wolves and cats, to show dogs and fantasy, and even farm animals and camels!

Our very baseline rule is, "It doesn't exist until you draw it." So, let your dreams take wing!

Group Submission Guidelines:

These rules only apply to submitting art to the group gallery. They do not dictate how you may play the game.

Please read the guidelines before submitting! Full guidelines may be found HERE. Some important reminders:

:bulletorange: We do not accept art using non-stock photography as reference. This means when you use a non-stock photo and copy it, not when you use it for research on how certain details look/move.

:bulletgreen: Please make sure to credit stock artists if you have used their work. If you haven't used any, just write "no refs used" in the description of your art or comment on the group submission so that we know.
:bulletgreen: We do accept shows and contests. These shows must be traditional art-based contests, so no raffles.
:bulletgreen: All forms of art (traditional / digital / photomanip etc) are accepted in this club's gallery. Keep in mind that it should be your own artwork and related to HARPG.

:bulletorange: We accept horses for sale if they are preexisting characters with their own original reference and information. We do not accept adoptables, breeding sales, breed imports, unfinished YHHs, or "looking-for" ads.

:bulletred: We do not accept premade linearts, or art made with premade linearts/bases. Please see the full guidelines for exceptions to this rule.

:bulletgreen: Please keep it a family-friendly environment and avoid excessive vulgarity or graphic art.

Remember to have fun and not take it all too seriously, it's just a game after all!

I'd love to join, how do I start?

We have a guide for the basics right here:
It's as easy as just submitting your works to the correct gallery folder. Mind you, we are just one HARPG group, there are numerous others that may have different rules than this one so have a look through to avoid hangups before submitting.

Is there a process you must go through to register your stable, human characters, and/or horses? Or can you just submit your art?

Simply submit your art with any information about them that you would like other people to know about your stable and characters! Be sure to credit any references <3

Is it possible to post unfinished work looking for critiques in the misc. art section? Wanted to ask before I submitted a piece. :)
