MEMBERSHIP and SUBMISSIONS
This is a group dedicated to collecting and promoting a premium selection of the finest Sonic the Hedgehog art that DeviantART has to offer.
To become a member, please put a link to one of your (best) artworks into the join request's message box. If you join and you don't provide a link you will be declined, automatically!
Before you continue to read on, keep in mind there is always a possibility your art will be rejected form the group. You are allowed to submit 2 images per week to avoid the inbox from overloading. If your image is declined, do not resubmit that same image. If you'd like an explanation for declined art or a critique, please ask on your submission ticket, or send the group a note. Do not post questions on the front page or it will ignored. Conversations like that should be discussed in private not in the open. If you aren't able to handle rejection or you don't plan on submitting, then The-Sonic-Group may not be the right group for you. You have an alternative to watch the group.
Gallery Submissions: What we expect from our big happy family!
Anatomy - Understanding anatomy is a key component. It doesn't matter if you have a cartoonish style or strive for realism, your underlining structure has to make SENSE.
Lineart - If the lineart of a submission looks choppy then it brings the entire piece down. Your lineart should be crisp and/or show an element of depth. This also goes for sloppy rendering jobs. Your submission doesn't have to be flawless but it has to make sense, but we want to see relatively clean/crisp edges.
Color/Greyscale - Color should be used to enhance The same goes for images that are within a gray-scale setting. the atmosphere of the art piece. In regards of using your tools of creation, you need to also keep it clean. Remember this: color is not always required for your submissions.
Think about it: Background and the Composition - Your background should complement the piece. It's always nice to have a setting for your character so the viewer can get a sense of what is going on! Remember: we will not require you to have EVERY image submitted with a background, but be creative and bless your fellow members with a image that will rock the shit out of them when they see it in their inbox! Be yourself and show off your art.
Composition should be clear. A focal point is present and the elements are arranged to draw in the viewer's eye. If you choose to draw illustrations or comics it's totally up to you!
Presentation - Lopsided artwork, edges of the page/sketchbook visible, coffee stains, scribbles, poor quality photo etc. All of these are unacceptable. How your art is presented is just as important as how well it's drawn. When you contribute an image make sure it's presentable.
Deviations that depict the characters from Sonic the Hedgehog (comic/cartoon/game)
The artwork must be of decent quality; finished, polished and something you're proud of.
We accept crossovers. (to a certain extent)
We accept mature artwork.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT
Half-assed work that looked like it was done in 5 minutes! Effortless work, simple sketches
Anything that's drawn on lined paper, or poorly scanned or photographed. We put a lot of value in overall presentation.
Work in progresses, this group features finished work.
Accept sprites, cultures, animations and stamps
We do not accept yaoi or yuri
Do not spam the group or cause any trouble. If your a trouble maker and you cause problems for other artists, you will be blocked FOREVER!
