Rules

  • Female characters must be the focus of the submissions

This is a rule that has pretty much always been respected, but we just spell it out for good measure. Of course we are aware that male characters cannot always be avoided, but the focus of the group remains on female characters as the subjects of inanimation. Don't take this as an absolute number but rather as an indication: submissions with male characters should have at least a 2:1 ratio of female characters.

  • Only fully inanimate predicaments, or processes of becoming fully inanimate
This is a group about inanimation, so submissions in which the "victims" are still able to move around like normal don't fit within the theme. This includes robots, as well as animate statues such as golems. Windup dolls are borderline, since they are unable to move while unwinded. Anything else that cannot move on its own is fine.

  • Submissions must fit within the deviantART Terms of Service
This has two main implications :

- For manips, you must either use stock pictures or have permission from the owner of the original picture. Crediting the stocks and/or original owners would be truly appreciated. Also, be careful with so-called "renders", which tend to be cutouts of copyrighted work that the submitter usually does not have permission for, even though they call them "stock". Manips using these won't be considered appropriate for the group either. If you wish to know more about deviantART policies on manips and stock material, please check the following :

- FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?
- FAQ #193: How do I prove that I had permission to use someone's work? (this is a bit excessive though, we won't ask for so much)
- FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?

- We will not accept submissions that fall within deviantART's definition of pornographic literature or imagery. For clear definitions of those, please check the following :

- FAQ #251: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic literature'; what do you consider this to be?
- FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?



  • Art theft is a serious offense and members proven to be art thieves will be banned from the group and their submissions removed.

  • For batches of pictures very similar to each other, only submit one of them
This includes :

- Pictures that are basically the same with only changes in the stage of transformation, or changes in clothing, etc.

- Re-renders of the same picture from different angles. An exception is big group pictures in which close-ups may be needed to see details.

- Very long sequences of chronological single pictures that have little visual difference and would be much better off in comic format

  • Only finished works
If you uploaded a work in progress picture that you know you are going to complete later, then we would prefer if you submitted only the final version of the picture. Now, we are well aware that sometimes artists may draw a sketch without any intent to do anything more with it, and then later decide to refine it and do another upload with an updated version. In this case, we would really appreciate if you could remove the work-in-progress submission before submitting the updated version, to keep things clean within the group.

We also expect a certain standard of quality for the submissions. We are not picky and will accept submissions from aspiring artists, but we simply require a minimal amount of effort put into the submissions. If you draw a character without recognizable features, we may choose to reject your drawing.

  • We reserve the right to refuse a submission for any reason other than what is listed above.

I was hoping it would not get to this, but as it seems, we have had to amend the rules due to a case of art theft. To make things clear, we do not condone art theft and will actively ban any member proven to be involved in such activity as well as remove all of their submissions from the group. People who disrespect artists do not deserve any respect from us either.

If you see one of the submissions to the group has been partly or completely stolen from another artist (or yourself), please refer it to us using the "Send a Note" button at the top of the profile page of the group.

Hi Admins, how are you? I noticed that the last 3 Images that I posted in my gallery and requested that they be exposed here, were all Denied. I'd like to know what's going on, I'm confused, because this has never happened before, is there any reason?
Awaiting response, very grateful for attention.

Hello,

Just to inform you on that, it's the same reason as the last time you were informed about denied submissions. We haven't changed the rules on the group yet and are still following dA rules closely when it comes to accepting submissions, meaning that we can't accept submissions from copyrighted work. There have been mass reporting groups at work recently and we would rather avoid any trouble with them, especially since some members of the community have been targeted already by such individuals.

For a reminder though, deviantART actually recently updated all of their FAQ pages, and here is a page that specifically addresses the cases of manips (specifically, presenting the case of "editing of modifying a creative work without proper permission" as copyright infringement) : about.deviantart.com/policy/co…

We will as always accept submissions for which either stock photos that are explicitly made available for manippers are used, or photos that were provided by another user who has given permission, as has been the case for some of your recent submissions. Rest assured that you are not an isolated case as we have had to deny quite a few manips from other users as well under these rules.

You have my apologies for the situation, as I understand your eagerness to share your work through the group. I hope, however, that I helped clear the confusion.

Hi Darkan :handshake: thank you very much for answering me, and thanks for the info. I've saved in my bookmarks the link you've sent so I can read more often so I can get more and more informed. Once again thank you very much, be well and have a great weekend.

Heads up but submitting to the subfolders doesn't work right now, I submitted to featured because it's the only open folder but feel free to move it from there once it's in and you figure it out.

Hello everyone! Thank you for allowing me into this group. I would like to know, would anyone who is more talented with drawing (which is all of you probably) like to do a collab? If anyone could draw a freeze from some of my works I will write a piece about your OC/a recognizable character in return. Cheers!

Hey, um, can we please not add works from willartmaster, Cloudartistmaster, icejeansflower and theflowerhistorian here? All of those accounts are the same guy, and his galleries are filled to the brim with art that is: 1. low-effort, and 2. stolen from other people. He's flooded countless open groups with his submissions, in fact due to him nobody can post anything to the Frozen and Petrified group anymore, he makes it very difficult to search for carbonite and when he uses the tag petrification work too, and him stealing stuff has affected some of our more talented contributors such as minus269.

I've actually lost track by now of how many artists I've contacted to warn them that guy stole their art and is trying to pass them off as his own creations, and you can always tell when something is stolen in his pictures by the huge, huge difference in quality between parts of the picture.

I really don't think we should be supporting art thieves or giving them the attention they want. :/
