BE SURE TO READ EVERYTHING IF YOU WANT TO JOIN!
Welcome to PremiumPokemon, a group dedicated to featuring the finest of Pokemon fan-art throughout the deviantART community. Unlike most groups, membership is not automatically approved, as we are a group that only grants membership to the skilled Pokémon artists of this website.
Should you wish to apply for membership, simply submit your request with a small, brief introduction about yourself and why you think your art skills match our standards. Keep in mind that if you fail to provide us with an introduction in the application request, you could automatically be rejected. Once you send the application, our admins will browse your gallery to see if your work is the kind of stuff that we are looking for. Do not apply if you have yet to make any Pokemon fan-art, as your membership will be automatically rejected. Your request will be voted upon by our set of admins.
If you do not wish to join, but still want to see the artwork that we accept, then just add the group to your WATCH.
Being a member of PremiumPokemon:
For members, the submission limit is one deviation per week. Also, please keep in mind that even as a member, your artwork will still be passed through our submission process, in which our admins will vote upon using strict quality control.
Please contribute your works into the correct folders. If your work in submitted into the wrong one, it will be declined.
No WIPs. We accept only finished, high-quality art that meet our standards.
No Fakemon. We only accept official characters and Pokémon from the actual series. Original characters are still fine. Crossovers are accepted, as long as they are submitted to the "Miscellaneous" folder.
Our group will currently not accept artwork that is deemed mature, as we try to offer a fair viewing field for both our members and watchers.
If your Deviation submission or join request expires, please resubmit.
If your artwork is declined, we will ask you if you want to know why. We will give you a critique on the artwork if you say yes. Keep in mind though that most of us aren't professionals in art.
This group will not accept any favourites. We have no use for them.
This group does not accept fan-fiction. We are dedicated solely to artwork only.
Please do NOT post comments such as spam or self-advertisements, as they will be deleted. Also, any comments from complainers or trolls about how we are "unfair" or how "we don't know good art when we see it" will simply either be ignored or deleted. Any repetitive offenders will be banned.
Q: When if the deviation that I want to submit has a picture of both a 1st generation legendary and any other regular Pokémon?
A: Deviations like these would simply fall under the "Group Pictures or Multiple Generations" folder. However, if it were to be a picture of two or more regular 1st generation Pokémon, then it would still fall under the "1st Generation" folder.
Q: Where do I submit Mega Evolutions or Primal Reversions?
A: In the folder of the generation they were introduced in. So at the time only the "6th Generation" and "6th Generation Legendaries" folders, however that might one day change.
Q: Can I be an admin? I'd love to help!
A: We are, in fact, in need of some more admins at the current moment, so if you would like to be an admin, simply comment somewhere. Your request will be reviewed.
Q: I saw a great artwork that should be added to your galleries, but it isn't mine. How do I submit it?
A: If you are a member, you can use the + Add to Group function on the Deviation page itself. It will appear for us like any other Submission, so we can judge it. If you are no member, please send us a note with a link to the artwork and some context (why we should add it for example).
Why we're here:
Our goal is to acquire only the better collection of Pokémon fan-art. One of the sole reasons we do this is because we believe there are way too many groups out there that just go ahead and accept everything and anything, thus making their galleries look a bit messy, while also hindering all the potentially good art. This group fixes that common issue, as the only things you will ever see in your inbox are pure, polished, quality work. Not everything we accept is absolutely perfect, but we try our best.
