Welcome to tooled
, the original Tool fan DeviantART group! We were originally an off-shoot of The-Tool-Project, which was a member group set up to categorize and collect all Tool related art on DeviantART. When The-Tool-Project was banned since it was a group before legitimate groups were allowed, we popped up in its place. And here we are!Submission Rules
1. Please submit to the applicable category. The categories are broken up into respective Tool albums. There is also a category for general Tool inspired or related art.
2. Do not submit someone else's work. This is a no brainer.
3. No A Perfect Circle works. We may add a subfolder later but for now, no APC stuff.
4. Please try to quality control yourself. We're not limited to amazing professional works, but low to no effort works will be declined.
5. Do not submit to the featured category. This is a category reserved for monthly featured Tooled works of past and present.
6. Do not submit to the Tooled Stuff category. This is a category reserved for group projects only.Why did my work get declined?
1. Did you miscategorize your work? This is the number one reason for declination.
2. If your work doesn't seem to look Tool-ish, and doesn't have anything in the description for Tool lyrics or "inspired by Tool", this is a reason. We want to keep out the general arts that have nothing to do with Tool from the group.
3. Was your work low to no content or effort?
4. If you are still unsure, and for some reason I did not give you a reason, feel free to note us!
Have a suggestion for a group project or something else? Feel free to send a note!
