How to Submit?

Do you have some art that you'd like to submit?

Excellent! This is how:

:star: First, which region is your character from? Are they a Pokemon or a person from Pokemon? Are there multiple characters, all from different regions?

:star: Once you know the answer to the above, have a look at the gallery! We have a folder for each of the four regions, plus a folder for people, and one for art of characters from several regions.

:star: Now that you're in the gallery, there are a few different ways to submit. The most straightforward is to scroll down to the Gallery name you'd like to submit to. Click the + symbol on the right-hand side of the title bar. Then click 'Submit to Gallery', and then 'Contribute Existing Artwork', and pick what you'd like to submit from your own gallery! It's as easy as that :D

You can also do this from inside each individual gallery by clicking the 'Submit to Gallery' button. You will notice that at the top of the dialog box that opens there is a drop-down menu that asks which gallery you'd like to submit to.

The last way if the shortest, sweetest way. If you already know exactly where to put what you'd like to submit, click your username+icon where it appears right underneath the club's name. You'll get a drop-down box with a few options, and one is 'Submit Deviation'. Click here and select the appropriate gallery in the dialog.

:star: Where should I submit? Easy! These examples should give you an idea:

Example: You've got a fantastic picture of Raichu that you want to submit. Submit to 'Kanto' and you're flying free :D

Example 2: You have a group artwork with Lapras, Aron, Luxray and Raikou. Click on 'Multiple Regions' and submit away!

Example 3: You've drawn a great piece of Frontier Brain Palmer and his Dragonite. This one's tricky! You could submit to either Multiple Regions or People, but the easiest way to figure out which place is best is to think about which character is the most prominent. If the picture is mostly about Dragonite, go for Multiple, but if it's more about Palmer, then go for People :D If it could be half and half, we will probably put it into both!

:star: Lastly, don't sweat it if you're unsure or submit to the wrong gallery by accident. We'll be able to sort everything out from back here if anything goes wrong :)


:pointr: Important note about submissions: Artwork submitted to the club doesn't need to be full-on realism, but we are aiming for a club image where the focus is work of reasonable quality where the focus is on a more realistic 're-imagining' of the pokemon rather than, as mentioned before, a more toonish representation with a few shifts in style.

Previously we were a bit more loose with this definition but it ended up creating difficulties in establishing a 'line', so to speak, between what was and wasn't appropriate for the club, so we had to make the decision to become a bit more strict with what we approved.

Don't be offended if your work doesn't make it through! It's not an indication of your skill, but rather what we feel best fits the image of the club. What is the image? The best way to tell is take a look at the examples of what is in the Featured gallery. If in doubt, feel free to ask us! We don't bite :]

Have fun!
Anyone is welcome to watch or join, and anyone is welcome to submit!

What are we here for? Well, any kind of Pokemon art, be it digital, traditional, or artisan craft, that is a new, real-ish (but not necessarily realism -- it doesn't have to be super-real to fit in here!), and not cartoony or chibi! If you're unsure, take a browse of the folders and see the kind of things that are there, and you'll get a pretty good idea :D

We'd like to have resolved work only, so that means cleaned and finished sketches, and clean, finished work.

We'd like this to become a place where we can swap ideas and helpful advice, and help each other investigate and experiment with new and interesting ways to see and translate the characters into new lights and styles of representation :D


Feel free and please do join up and start submitting! Even if you don't draw, we'd love to have you!

~ Me


_______________________________________
:bulletblue:What We Accept:bulletblue:
  1. Finished sketches and lineart -- Examples featherclaw.deviantart.com/art… kuroseishin.deviantart.com/art…
  2. Fully-rendered/finished work -- Examples kimbo-demonica.deviantart.com/… sinn-ryu.deviantart.com/art/Sw…
  3. Stylized work -- Examples kimbo-demonica.deviantart.com/… renepolumorfous.deviantart.com…
  4. 'Re-imaginings' and redesigns -- Examples eclipsis.deviantart.com/art/Ti…
  5. Sculpture/soft toys/other craft-based projects (not cartoon-ish) -- Examples sinn-ryu.deviantart.com/art/Pl…
  6. 3rd Feb - New - Though we don't allow OCs and fakemon, after careful consideration, we have decided that we will accept art of teams with their trainer OCs! There are two conditions: first, the Pokemon must be the dominant subject, and second, that the art fits the theme of the club. We have made a new folder specially for Teams! Go check it out!



:bulletblue:What We Don't Accept:bulletblue:
  1. Work drawn in the official style or close enough to it
  2. Unfinished work/roughs & WIPs/etc...
  3. Chibi art
  4. Cartoonised art --
    I'm aware this is a difficult and grey area here defining where the line is between too cartoonised and realish enough. The ideal direction is less towards just having a cartoonish Pokemon with bumped up anatomy and more towards trying to re-think the Pokemon and the style they're usually drawn in. If you're unsure, feel free to try anyway!
  5. Sculpture/plush/other craft-based projects that are either chibi/toonish or based on the official designs
  6. Fakemon and original characters
  7. At this stage, we aren't accepting comics.
  8. Unfortunately, after discussing it we have reached a group decision to disallow Photomanips. Too many people seem to think that photos they find on Flickr and Google Image Search are free to use, and after initially trialling the acceptance of manips, we found it to be too difficult to discern whether or not people had permission from the original photographer to use them and we have decided instead to not accept them.


:pointr: Lastly, work doesn't need to be full-on realism, but we are aiming for a club image where the focus is work of reasonable quality where the focus is on a more realistic 're-imagining' of the pokemon rather than, as mentioned before, a more toonish representation with a few shifts in style.

:bulletgreen:Submission Notes & Other Rules:bulletgreen:
  1. Please limit club submissions to two per member per day. We're not stopping you from submitting more than that per day, but we would prefer to keep from inbox flooding, and if you space out your submissions to the club, you'll be able to maximise your exposure! :D
  2. If we deny a submission, it will be mostly on the basis that we felt it didn't quite fit with the club image and standard, or it seemed that the work was unfinished. You're welcome to ask which of the two it was if you like.
  3. Please don't ask to be put in Featured Gallery. We randomly pick for it and try very hard to represent a broad variety of styles, skill-levels and members.
  4. The images in the gallery auto-link to the original member's submission, so fave and comment away! :D
  5. Regarding Affiliates: We're happy to swap links with other clubs who'd like to affiliate and link back to us :]
  6. Most importantly, play nice

If anyone is interested, I'm offering cheap commissions in an attempt to draw every single pokemon in a realistic style. See my journal entry below for details.

Is this group alive anymore? I have been trying to submit an image to the gallery for months and it's not getting accepted or rejected it is expiring.

If there is no one active running this group I will gladly offer my help as a co-founder in order to keep things running....
