Welcome To The Murder
What We Are Looking For
This group is for all fans of The Crow universe created by James O'Barr, The Graphic Novels, The Movies and The TV Series.
We also encourage you to create your own original Crow characters aslong as they conform to The Crow Universe and Mythos.
What We Aren't Looking For
We don't want those scenes you see all over deviantART of a single figure standing before some dark scenery with a Crow flying in the background, That kind of art dosn't tie into The Crow universe enough to be shown here, Niether does simple photographs of Crows going about thier every day business, We also wont accept screen caps or scans from any of the movies or novels, All submissions must be your own work and All submissions to this group MUST be easily tied into The Crow Universe.
Submission Guide Lines
We permit members to submit a maximum of 3 deviations per week where as contributors can submit a maximum of 6 per week.
Here is a quick run down on what the differant categories in the gallery are for,
pretty straight forward but still valuble to have it all written out to try minimise the ammount of work needed to maintain the gallery. If your work fits into more than one category and you aren't sure which to submit to, pick the most relevant to the piece and we will cross post it to the other relevant categories.
You are never required to submit to this category as we will pick which deviations we feel should be featured, So please remember to pick another category to submit to so it gives us less work having to shift the deviation to another category our self.
Movie Fan Art
Is for exactly what it says, This folder is for any art work that depicts any scene or characters from the original movie or any of it's sequels.
Novel Fan Art
Again this gallery is exactly as the title says, Any work that is a recreation or features any of the characters from any of the Graphic Novels or Comic Books.
This category is for those of you that have created orignal characters based on the original Crow mythos, These characters must be easily tied into The Crow universe but don't have to look similar to other Crows.
This category is for all traditional media, for those who aren't sure what mediums are traditional or not, Traditional is any physical medium such Drawing, Painting, sculptures, etc.
The digital category is for all computerised work, Such as Digital Drawings, Photomanipulations, 3D Rendering, etc, If you have digitally coloured a traditional drawing we would class that as digital.
This category is for any fan fction based on any of the books/movies and original characters, We would appreciate if you only uploaded fics that are fully completed, it is ok to submit your fic in a series of parts but please have all parts written before you start submitting.
Another obvious one but this category is for Artistic Photography, and i stress "Artistic", This category isn't for a random picture with you wearing some variation of The Crow makeup taken by yourself in your bedroom, this category is for proffessional artistic photography.
Simply for those of us that have had The Crow etched into our bodies and want to show off thier ink.
This category is for those lucky fans who have the pleasure of owning an original James O'Barr commission and want to show off thyier purchase, Goes without saying but all submissions to this category must have been drawn by James O'Barr himself and you must not be taking credit for the work.
The Murder Members
Being a huge Crow fan myself i know that we all love to throw on The Crow face paint from time to time, this category is for just that,It is also for those lucky fans who have had the honour of meeting and getting thier photo took with James O'Barr himself. I do plead that you don't over flow this category, just one picture every few month would be more than enough, it would be awesome to have atleast one picture of all members.
This category is for again exactly what the title says, wallpapers, icons, stamps and signatures for any of the movies or books. I do stress that for this category we would like to see more than just a screencap or scan of one of the movies/books with some text stuck on top, they don't have to be way over the top, simplicity is often better but we would like a decent amount of work put in to all graphics.
Support The Murder
This category is mainly for Official support graphics made by the Murder Staff, You may make support stamps and graphics for The Murder and submit them here but this category will mainly be used to for official group graphics.
As we are a fan opperated group we run on donations of time and money, We would grately appreciate donations towards making our group into a super group to make serving you our members alot easier and to make our page a litlle more pleasing to the eye, If the good feeling of donating isn't enough incentive to do so we will also upgrade you from members to contributers, you will be able to submit double the amount of art a week and we will also create a special donors stamp with your user name on it and feature it in the Donors Gallery.
This should be a no brainer but we expect a friendly atmosphere here, I know that there are some extremely passionate fans out there as i am one myself, Some people love the first movie and hate the second and third etc and others may think other wise, we are all allowed to have our own opinions on this matter and i have no problem with discussing and debating it but any flaming or immature behavior of that sort shall result in you being either suspended for a period of time or even banned, if you want to flame anyone take it out of the group page.
