Want to be a member? Read all the rules first! We will know if you have. If you do not read the rules (ALL of them!), you will be DECLINED without explanation.
Hello and welcome to the Sonic Fan Character Group! This is a group about original, fan-made characters based around the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Anyone is welcome, with any kind of character!
Rules of the group!
If you are not a member, don't post (unless you are a new person asking a question regarding the group). If you post and are not a member, your comments will be hidden and you face being blocked.
Do not post on the personal pages of any staff.
Listen to helpful advice that the staff give you. This means if you are advised to re-read the rules during group membership, you should definitely do that.
Please be polite to everyone at the group (this includes staff and members!)
Don't be a smartass to the staff. This means, just do as you're expected/asked. Don't RP as your angry FC to us, it just makes you look bad.
Posting negatively about the group on your journal is a sure-fire way to get removed or have your membership applications declined. You may say what you wish, it's your journal, but if you're outright attacking the group, you're out. If you have an issue, please note the group. I'm sure we can sort something out, we're very understanding staff.
Don't post the password as a comment on the front page, that's not what we asked you to do. Doing this will ensure your name will be blacklisted, and you will be banned from the group permanently. No questions asked.
To prove you have read the rules, when asking to become a member, only type the word "crumpet" in your request. This way, acceptance is assured!
Rules for artwork/submissions!
Click here for a tutorial on how to submit to the gallery! cinderella-cage.deviantart.com…
To submit your work, click on the gallery. Then, click on the + at the right side next to the appropiate category that your artwork falls into, and submit! We welcome EVERYONE'S work, be that you're a writer or an artist, and it doesn't matter how good or bad you think you are, this group is about enjoying a wide variety of works. It is not a requirement to ever submit any work. Do so at your own leisure!
Submit you work into the correct category
Submit the finalised version of your works (this means no works in progress)
Official characters artwork is not accepted, unless they're with fan characters, and the number of fan characters outweigh the number of official ones. (If you want somewhere to upload official Sonic character art, why not try sonic-club?)
Multiple versions of the same picture will not be accepted. Only submit the version of the picture you want to be displayed.
No tracing/use of bases of any kind This includes bases that you may have made yourself. This also includes templates that you may or may not have made yourself. Just because you made it for your own personal use does not mean it's not a base/template.
No merges. This means, no Pokemon Sonic characters, etc. You may have cosplay Sonic characters.
Works can NOT have any of the following:
Anything of a sexual nature (No Yaoi/Yuri/Hentai/other fetish stuff)
Anything too violent
No strong language
Works which might be offensive to other people won't be accepted
Your work can't contain something of someone else's work (without their permission)
Your work can't contain official icons, logos, watermarks, etc or have images used within your work which you didn't draw yourself. You CAN have your own personal watermark on it, and/or the dA watermark.
In short, basically, don't try to submit anything you wouldn't expect to see in a Disney movie.
If you have any questions that aren't answered here feel free to post on the front page or note the group.
