Hello, Vocaloid-Lovers!

It's time for a drawing prompt! But first a little news:

New Programmer
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Touji and I'm a new programmer for this group. I am an artist, writer, and a relatively new Vocaloid fan. I fell for Vocaloids in Autumn 2018 and have been wholeheartedly diving into it since, even attending both Miku Expo and Magical Mirai 2019! My favorite Vocaloid is Hatsune Miku though I also believe in supporting all 'loids and try to be as inclusive as I can. I hope to spur activity in this group in the coming weeks and months, especially with so many holidays approaching, there's a lot of potential for projects and activities. Pleasure to work with you!

And now to the main topic...

Drawing Prompt - Autumn

The Autumn Equinox approaches! This is the day when the Sun appears directly above the Earth's equator and marks the beginning of Autumn (or Spring for the Southern Hemisphere). This year the Autumn Equinox falls on September 23rd. To celebrate this celestial event, let's have a drawing prompt! I'm announcing this short-notice so this will only be done for fun with no deadlines or anything like that.

Autumn is the time for harvesting crops, feasting, and family togetherness. It is a time when life begins to rest, when the leaves turn red and the animals prepare to sleep as the days grow shorter and colder. Many cultures celebrate this season with events such as harvest festivals, the Autumnal Equinox day in Japan, and the recent Mid-Autumn Festival celebrated by the Chinese and Vietnamese.

Let's create art to usher in this season of change! Draw something related to Autumn and Vocaloids, whether it's your favorite Vocaloid spending time with friends, eating food, or enjoying the fall scenery! Don't forget to submit your art to the proper folders and feel free to share it in the comments as well!

The Autumn Equinox approaches, have a nice day!

:bulletblue: Submissions

We accept any work that is focused on existing Vocaloid/UTAU (no OCs!!). They must be within dA rules. You can submit 1 deviation per week.

- Please submit pictures in their appropriate folders. Anything submitted to the incorrect folder will be declined instantly. Take care when submitting! Make sure it's going to the right folder.
- Look before you submit - Gallery submissions and Favorites submissions are different!
- No multiples. Submit one version of each artwork only. (For example, if you do a recolor. You can't submit two versions of the same artwork)
- Black Rock Shooter is not Vocaloid and thus is NOT ALLOWED. We also do not accept Kagerou Project etc. - submissions are to be strictly Vocaloid & UTAU only.
- We also do not accept song mascots (e.g. Luka's boyfriend from Just Be Friends) unless they are pictured together with an official Vocaloid / recognized UTAU.
- No desktop screenshots!
- No inappropriate pictures - submissions should be G or PG.
- No original characters dressing up as Vocaloids, and NO ORIGINAL VOCALOIDS OR UTAUS. Submissions must be of recognized Vocaloids, as well as recognized UTAUs complete with voice bank.
- We are very strict about art theft in this group. EVERYTHING MUST STRICTLY BE YOUR OWN WORK. We will not accept icons where you only made the icon but the art hadn't been drawn by you. We will not accept fanfiction with cover images that were not drawn by you, etc etc.

:new: :new: :new:
- All art submissions must be neatly done, finished-looking and polished pictures which are cleanly photographed / scanned. NO WIPs, LINEARTS, SKETCHES OR ROUGH WORKS!
- All cosplay submissions must be of completed costumes. No WIPs or anything that looks like a WIP. Photos must be clean (dark, blurry, grainy etc photos will NOT be accepted). Crowded convention photos will also NOT be accepted as they are more in the vein of "casual snapshots" rather than art.
- As above, all figurine photos must also be clean, polished, good quality photos. Photos cluttered with other figurines not relevant to Vocaloid will not be accepted.

We follow deviantART's policies. That means editing, tracing, and to stop the confusion, eyeballed (drawn by just looking) pictures are not allowed. Original dollbases will be accepted, but not dollbases that are traced without permission from the original artist.

I'll comment here, too (just in the case that my previous reply went unread). A while ago, I was told that I should re-submit this artwork to "Derivatives, Genderswap, and Fanloids," instead of "UTAUs. "However, the character in the artwork IS a UTAU, complete with, perhaps there has been a misunderstanding somewhere down the line?

If I've made a mistake though, I apologize!

Hi there! A lot of people have confused fanmade Vocaloids for UTAUs, so unless there is a song link in the description or it says UTAU prominently near the top, we make snap judgments when accepting them into folders. I apologize for the mix-up.

It's quite alright! I completely understand ^^ And that's good to know - I'll try and remember to add a mention of "UTAU" somewhere near the top of my descriptions in the future!

Thank you for hosting this group!
