Some images do require explanations for why we decline them, but the majority we will not be explaining. Just check the rules below. If you feel it doesn't fall under these, please feel free to contact us, as it may have been an accidental decline. We're old, We're busy, and we're exhausted enough as is.
Our peanut has finally been removed, so when you join the group please state in the comment, that you have read and understand the following rules, other wise you will be declined.
You can only submit two images a week to this group. Make it count.
Unless you are a comic folder owner.
NOT ALLOWED:Mature content: To put this simply: "Can you show the image to your grand/mother?" If you answer no, we're declining. This is a group that is family friendly.
NOT ALLOWED: Politics/Religion: Understand this is a global group, a lot of people have a lot of different beliefs. We are not here to alienate anyone. If you think your piece could tick someone off for these reasons, don't submit it.
NOT ALLOWED:Premade bases/traces.
NOT ALLOWED:Rough Sketches or obviously incomplete work. We do accept Line Arts and will closely consider sketch works that appear fully realized or are otherwise stylized.
NOT ALLOWED: Sketch Dumps: We have never accepted (consciously) sketch dumps in the past, and we still won't. Please take consideration in the art you submit to us as you only get to do it twice a week.
NOT ALLOWED:Theft is unacceptable and will result in banning and a report to the dA team.
NOT ALLOWED: NO ADOPTABLE SALES. However, finished work of an adoptable you own and have properly fleshed out into an actual character is okay. As a group, we are here to celebrate YOUR OC's, not to sell them to other people.
OTHER SUBMISSION RULES:
Photomanipulations: Must give credit to and have permission from the sources used.
Manners: Be polite and you will be treated politely in return.
Memes: Must have OCs in them.
FAN CHARACTER RULES:
NOT ALLOWED: blood relatives, legal relatives, evil twins, clones, or any other variation of any canon character.
NOT ALLOWED: Personifications of, gijinka of, or gender swaps of any canon character.
NOT ALLOWED: Boyfriends/girlfriends/spouses of any canon character.
NOT ALLOWED: Any pieces that contain canon characters in there.
CONTESTS ONLY: Your FCs/OCs cosplaying as canon characters. Not in regular submissions.
ALLOWED:Fan characters who are visually distinct from canon characters and therefore not wearing the same clothes, colors, etc. The key criterion we will use is that people should not be able to mistake your FC for a canon character from that setting. Of course, if they look like someone from another canon setting, that happens a lot by accident, and that's okay.
Make sure your FCs go into the "Fan characters" folder. All other folders are for purely original characters.
Ideally, we would like fan characters who were created nearly from scratch, and based off the setting's universe itself, rather than its existing characters or plot."
If you have problems understanding where an image goes, and are unsure where to submit your work to, please contact us. The titles of each folder is self explanatory, however if you do require guidance, we'll be glad to point you in the right direction to prevent you from losing your weekly submission to a decline.
If you have a comic that is at least 20 pages long. Please ask and we MIGHT assign you a folder to post one page daily in. These are temporary folders and will be deleted after 2 months if they become inactive.
Please don't be afraid to come and ask us any questions, make suggestions or simply come for a chat!
We ask everyone for their cooperation in keeping this group going smoothly and comfortably. Please help us by keeping an eye on the galleries for very rare cases of art theft, or in case we missed something nasty.
On the off chance that we hold a challenge or competition, please join, it makes the group more fun for all of us.
Interact with your fellow group members: We are not just a dumping ground, this group has been around for over ten years now, it would be sad if people had forgotten how to make friends as that is our objective: Friendship.
Continue to improve on your art. <3
