Welcome to :iconoriginality-club:!

This club features collections of our best art and our favorite original characters so they may be seen and loved by everyone and recognized for the spectacular characters that they are!

:star:Only 5 submissions /Day at max!!

:star:Submission requirements include:

:bulletgreen: Art of Intermediate to Professional level.
:bulletgreen: Finished pieces except Sketches. Our sketch folder contains concept ideas of OCs which does not mean unfinished works. Concepts can be ideas you may rework later or just character sketches and studies.
:bulletgreen: Good use of Color. (For all colored submissions.)
:bulletgreen: Good use of Anatomy.
:bulletgreen: Good use of Perspective.
:bulletgreen: Pencil art must be of a Refined quality.
:bulletgreen: Fandom ocs: Own characters who belong to the artist but they live in a well known universe what was created by someone else. For example: A pokemon trainer who has never showed up in the series.
:bulletgreen: Fandom ocs can be with creatures of a universe but no main characters of a series. For example: A Pokemon trainer with Pikachu? Acceptable.
:bulletgreen: All submissions must be submitted to the appropriate folders!! If you submitted it to the wrong folder,you have to wait for another week to be able to submit again.
:bulletgreen: It can be a commissioned work of your character, i.e. someone else drew it but it is of your character. The same is true for a commissioner who drew the OC of someone else as long as the following rule is met!
:bulletgreen: All submissions must include a 2-3 sentence description about the personality of one or two of the specific characters in the artist's comments (description), or a link to a bio. If you don't want to spoil your character then write basic facts as if it were a trailer. You can write about the feelings of the character or mention the world they live in or some little hint of their skills... etc
For example: Another self has formed in him and the new one can get over mental and physical pains and appears when his mind is unable to deal with a stressful confrontation.
I wanted to symbolize it with red eyes and an evil grin but truly he has blank eyes when he changes personalities. He doesn't show this grin usually but has a poker-face.
:bulletgreen: Each submission must show a CLEAR and solid picture of the OC in question, any drawing that focuses on anything else, drawing your eye away from the character, will be forced to be declined, or scrutinized carefully.


:star:Submissions may NOT include:

:bulletred: Photomanipulation
:bulletred: Photo. Textures are allowed if it doesn't cause disharmony.
:bulletred: Mix photo and art
:bulletred: Images without focus on the oc
:bulletred: Body parts of the oc: only a certain body part of the character; we need minimum a head seen in the image
:bulletred: Cosplay Costumes
:bulletred: Over-Exaggerated Anatomy
:bulletred: Obvious Fetish/Sexual intent
:bulletred: Guro (pictures showing gore or exposed internal anatomy)
:bulletred: Pictures of currently copyrighted characters or commercial characters from a current series.
:bulletred: Fandoms. It means well known characters who originally belong to the author who created them but these characters were recreated by fans. For example: Naruto or Bleach.
:bulletred: Fandom ocs shouldn't be with fandoms. Fandom ocs applies to creatures of a created universe but no main characters from the series. For example: Team Rocket and my pokemon trainer with Pikachu? Unacceptable.
:bulletred: If your artwork was declined, please don't send it again and again without correct the mistake. It's like spam and you'll be banned.
:bulletred: We will make a black list of members who has three or more images of theirs "storaged." For now these people will get a warning and if their name shows up once again with "storaged" works they will be kicked from the group.
:bulletred: Any work copied or traced and claimed as original. We find this entirely Unacceptable!


If Your Submission Is Declined:
:bulletblue:Please review the Submission Requirements
:bulletblue:If you have further questions, please send an inquiry to us through your Correspondence Message. That is also one of the main reasons why you must not delete the Correspondence Message.
:bulletblue:All inquiries should include a link to the submission in question so we may review it properly.
:bulletblue:All inquiries will be answered by critique. We will do this as professionally as possible, citing the requirement we feel the piece did not meet.

:star: Please remember that we reserve the right to decline any work that is submitted into our gallery that does not follow the rules, or it does not fit the standards that are put in place. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there are so many wonderful and talented artists that we have to pick and choose carefully and sometimes scrutinize every drawing carefully. If you wish for a critique as to why your drawing was not accepted, feel free to ask and we shall get back to you as soon as we can.


:star: Removal of a previously accepted piece for later resubmission with result in the artist being banned from Originality-Club! We will not accept the same piece twice!

:star: Please show us the kind of good manners and respect you would ask from us. If you must leave the club, we are sad to see you go, but an angry departing message is not appropriate.

Hullo! I followed all the rules listed in your about section, and put my original characters in what I believed was the correct folder, but my piece was still declined. I'm not sure why, as it's not a low-quality piece or non-original characters.
Tiny-angulum 2: Magical Boogaloo by V0IDSPACER
These are all original characters from my original world, in a book series I'm currently writing. I'm mostly just confused as to why it was declined and would love to know why for future reference. ^^ ;

Personally, I would assume it was denied because of the rule:

Must have good use of 
Anatomy.

However for your work it's difficult because they are not human, so it's an odd grey area, if that makes sense

Bullet; Red Due to the lack of active admins, we are no longer able to provide critique or answer questions about why a submission was declined.
If your submission was declined, it is because of the following reasons:

1. No character information. (2-3 sentences required about your charcater)
2. Wrong folder.
3. Not an original character.
4. If you were declined and it is not for one of the reasons listed above, then it is because of art quality. You can request critique through your correspondence message

That doesn't really answer my question at all, but...thanks, I suppose. :\

I'll retry submitting it to a different folder, since that seems like the only logical reason it was declined.

Could I ask for a mention of OC-training enrollments in Originality-Club journal, please? :aww:

(Although we like to invite some new OC authors, all old friends welcome!)

You have declined an artist to become a member. Too sad for such lack of hospitality.
