Do you have original characters? Do you love original characters? Then this is the group for you! Here we do regular art challenges and you compete WITH YOUR OCs! Sound great? Then join on in. We'd love to have you.
WHAT IS AN ORIGINAL CHARACTER?
An original character, also known as an OC, is a character that you have created from scratch for yourself for a story you've made up or just to represent yourself or something you care about. There are also OCs created based off of official works in entertainment, and they are called Fan Characters, but are still in fact yours.
This group does not accept Fan Characters or any characters based off an established/published work. For the challenges, we suggest that contestants make new OCs of their own design if they only have fan characters available to them. We DO accept fan art of other people's OCs if you have their permission and it is stated in the description of the art you submit, but this is only on occasions and not at all times.
DO I NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE?
Yes, or else you won't be able to submit to the folders. Keep reading to see how to join.
HOW DO I JOIN?
All you have to do is click on the Join Request and you will automatically be accepted.
HOW DO I SUBMIT?
Once the Challenge starts we'll create a folder for it. You will be able to contribute by going into the gallery and selecting to submit to the appropriate area.
CAN I SUBMIT OLD ARTWORK TO THE CHALLENGES?
No. We do not accept old artworks. Please review all rules before submitting to that gallery. Once a challenge has ended, that gallery folder is permanently closed and will not accept any further submissions.
CAN I SUBMIT ARTWORK OF FAN ART, FAN CHARACTERS, MYSELF, FRIENDS, AND/OR FAMILY?
No. We do not accept fan art/fan characters or art of yourself/friends/family.
CAN I SUBMIT COMMISSIONS I DID FOR OTHER PEOPLE / COMPANIES?
No. You cannot submit commissioned works you did for others. You already got something out of that commission. Your primary purpose for creating that artwork is to gain money/points/etc. from someone else so it's obviously unfair to us if you will simply re-use it for our Challenges.
CAN I SUBMIT THE ARTWORK OF OTHERS INTO THE GALLERIES?
No. These challenges are for MEMBERS ONLY. Please do not suggest the work of others to the group. It will be declined/removed if submitted and the artwork does not belong to a member of the group.
WHY HAS MY WORK NOT BEEN ACCEPTED? SHOULD I RE-SUBMIT?
No, do not resubmit. If it's been five days and your work has not been accepted, or it is right before the due date for the challenge you can send us a message requesting to know if your work is in queue or not. We will let you know. Keep in mind that submissions are accepted much slower on weekdays due to us not being online.
CAN I SUBMIT CONTEST THEME IDEAS?
Oh yes, we love those. Send them to us via note.
DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER TO DONATE POINTS TO THE GROUP OR ARTWORKS TO THE CHALLENGES?
No, you do not have to be a member to donate something to the group or to any of the challenges. Though we would gladly have you as a member, so go ahead join us, too!
