Group Rules

:iconletter-rplz::iconletter-eplz::iconletter-aplz::iconletter-dplz:
:iconletter-mplz::iconletter-eplz:

Submissions are limited to 5 a day and MUST be related to an original character, or an original world (eg, maps or towns) - if no information is mentioned about the character, then it will be assumed that it is general art and will be declined.



What we DO NOT accept

Fan-based characters or Fan art are not allowed.
Fan-based characters however, are allowed in the ADOPTABLES folder IF they are adopts ONLY

These are characters created to fit into an already existing world, such as Naruto fan-based characters, or any other already existing and well known world.
We are a group dedicated to original characters. We do understand that in many cases characters may have been slightly influenced by certain things, this is ok, but blatant fan-based characters are not welcome here.

:bulletblack: For now we only accept fine art submissions not literature. Character references may contain text in the description, this is totally fine, but there MUST be a visual element.

:bulletblack: No species guides please, there are plenty of groups for those.

:bulletblack: Unfinished doodles are not accepted, as is anything on LINED PAPER or anything which is poorly scanned or photographed.

What we DO accept
:bulletblack: We accept all mediums except lit for the time being. We also accept all skill levels so please you are more than welcome to pop in.

:bulletblack: If you decide to submit work FROM someone else (eg. you do not draw but someone has drawn your character for you) please request the original artist's permission before submitting yourself.

:bulletblack: We do accept character cross-overs and encourage them! We also encourage you to submit any gift art you may have done in appreciation of another deviant's characters.

:bulletblack: We do accept animal characters and anthro characters, however in terms of when we have trades or cross-over challenges, we do expect animal artists or anthro artists to embrace the idea that they may at one point have to draw someone's human character. This also goes for those who focus on human characters also.

:bulletblack: We do accept mature content.

:bulletblack: We are all for respecting the work of others, each character and idea is the legal copyright of its owner and we do not appreciate thieves.

Updates-and-reminders by Sleyf

Don't forget to enter out brand new "Character Exploration Prompt Challenge".
There will be a point prize! (donations always welcome on my userpage too lol)
Just as a reminder of the prompt:

Character Exploration Prompt no.2

"Darkest Moment"

Deadline - May 2nd (extension on demand)
"Everyone has experienced a bad moment in their lives - for some, it's not as terrible as for others, but as fiction often reminds us - trauma builds character. How true this is, is debatable, however.
    We've all watched films or read books where the main character experiences a life-shattering moment that prompts them on a mission to do good, or bad. Every hero has a story, every villain a reason, show us the darkest moment of your character's life, even if it didn't push them into drastic decisions.
    Perhaps they witnessed the massacre of their village? Perhaps their most terrible moment was being late to something for the first time in their lives (to some people that can be life-shattering lol). Perhaps it was the moment they learned their dog had died, or their parens were divorcing, perhaps it was the moment they slipped into alcoholism and decided to go on a vendetta against the low-life drug cartel who burned down their apartment?
    Whatever their darkest point of their lives, whether it has happened or not, it's your task to show us.
We have had a similar prompt in the past, but this time it's a Character Exploration Prompt!"

Ask-me-anything-banner by Sleyf

How does it work?

Well that's simple!  I'm sure you've all seen the popular "ask me anything" meme going around, where deviants pose questions to the characters of other deviants - who then respond with a small sketch illustration with an answer.  This is the same!

You can choose any character you want to answer, and you can answer as many times as you like, this is an activity that is just for fun, but if you do choose to enter, please upload your pic and let us see! I'll upload all answers in a journal.

Take part and ask away!

If you also have any questions you'd like to put to the ocs of your fellow members, then please ask them here so we can add them, along with your username, in the next "Ask me anything" activity - I may even draw little sketches of your oc, fursona, or persona asking the question - just add your pref (and a character link) along with your question!

This question was suggested by :iconoly-rrr:

Ama---2 by Sleyf
You know I had to choose his question!

Please upload any answers to the "Group Activities" Folder - which was once the Prompt Folder but is now...covering all group activities! This way I can see them even if I wasn't the one who accepted them in the submission queue.

Proposed deadline: 9th May

To celebrate the end of "book one", the residents of Alverdale are hosting a grand masquerade ball, to which everyone is invited!

So what should you do?

    Remember thought that this is masquerade, so let your inner costume-designer out of that cage, and indulge in an evening of opulence amongst the cream of society.

Will submit the AMA entry after I get some sleep - it's ready but I'm in no state to check for typos and such now. :P I hope you'll add it to the journal later if you happen to update it before then! :)
