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: Adoptables
: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.

Hello All!

Hope y'all are having a great spooky time of year! Just wanted to send out a quick shoutout for one of our affiliates :iconoc-training:

So if you have never taken part or heard of OCT before, it's a group where for 100 days/4 months, you "train" an OC. Basically it gives you the opportunity to flesh out a character and receive active feedback!

It's really fun, in fact, I have three characters that have taken part in prior rounds, and I'll be participating in this one as well!

So if you are interested, they're starting their next round on November 1st and it will last until February 29th
Here's the most recent journal with all the info! ->…
I hope some of you look into it, it's really awesome and you meet a lot of cool people :)
NOTE: The hard deadline for enrolling a character is November 10th!!!!


Thanks Guys!

Okay. Can I least get a critique?
MaddieJK Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2019  Professional Filmographer
Currently, I don't have time to give a full on critique (as I'm the only acting admin of 4 groups atm, on top of college)
If you'd like to link a piece, I will try to look at it within the next few days and give some advice. 

Thank you
