Okay SO, the way this would work is first, draw your character (ideally with a sweet pride accessory or two) and upload it to DA with a transparent background so we can pick it up and move it in a larger collaborative image. Something like:
All the little dark figures being stand-ins for character submissions, just as an example of how we could arrange things, on a background using the pride colors for the corresponding flag! (I promise you I can draw better backgrounds than this, I'm just excited and want to get the concept out. Also if other people wanna volunteer to do any that'd be cool too, just message me.)
For right now I'm thinking of doing five major groupings for Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Ace, and Trans flags. (Nonbinary would fall under Trans, and I want to say Pan can hang with Bi which I hope wouldn't be an issue since they're very similar.) When the collabs are all put together, they'll be uploaded with the list of pokemon/character names and linked up to the owner(s) original pictures.
So, if you want in on this, submit your character (with a transparent background please) to Featured at https://www.deviantart.com/pmdpride and please let me know if there are issues with this, I've never run a group before
1) It doesn't have to be PMD but they do have to be Pokemon for this!
2) 5 characters max per person, 2 max for each of those five sections (so you can't submit three pokemon for the trans piece) and you can't submit the same character to two sections
3) Make sure you mention in the description which group you want your character in, especially if they've got more than one kind of pride accessory!
Aaand I can't think of anything else, so:
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JULY 20
That's a tentative deadline, and hopefully by July 27th, all the backgrounds will be done and the collabs can be put up for everyone to see \o/
If there are any issues with being able to accept submissions or issues to work out in general, I'll let you know. Elsewise, I hope people are interested and have fun with it! Also, if you have suggestions or problems, please let me know, I am super winging this.
PMD Pride 2020 Deadline Reminder
Do they have to be characters from an established comic? Or can they just be personal OC/RP characters? For example, I have made fanart of a couple from a PMD RP in the past (both bi) but that's the only thing of them that's been made public. (There's nowhere to read the RP since it's just with a friend.) So would they count if I made new art of them for this?
Edit: Also, is traditional coloring okay, as long as the background is transparent?
Yeah they can just be personal characters! Honestly there's a good chance I'm going to do at least one like that myself. And yeah traditional coloring is fine as long as the background's transparent
Uh, hmm I don't think so on the size recommendations or limits, and I think the amount of shading and everything will be up to what you want. We're definitely gonna have art styles clashing anyways, but that's part of the fun I think
So if I'm reading this correctly, you're right the wording is janky and the timing is kinda funny since I just edited in a link to the group I made for it cause I realized it wasn't clear this was a group featured post (Unless you already saw that?) If there's issue with submitting to the group or I've misunderstood the issue, please let me know!
