Group Rules


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: We no longer accept mature content

: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 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.

This prompt was suggested by our winner from the last one Varian-Jackson

Character Exploration Prompt no.4

"The Ugly Truth"

Deadline - July 25th (extension on demand)

    "We're always so used to portraying our OCs in a positive light that we often neglect to remember that they have their flaws too, now is your chance to show us the ugly side of their character.  Do they have anger issues?  Perhaps they lie to protect themselves? "Borrow" and never return thing?  Are naive and take far too much for granted?  Maybe they are prone to jealousy or prejudice?  Or maybe that handsome well-toned hunk of yours actually wears a man corset - who knows eh?  In whatever way you see fit, show us the flaws in your oc that are rarely on display, these could even be bad habits!
If your oc is seriously flawed and shows that side of their personality all the time...well show us their good qualities if they have any!."

As with previous prompt challenges, these will be put up for vote via member selection - only this time, I hope to also offer points for the "winner" - who will then also be asked to offer up the next CEP challenge.

Please remember to let me know if you'll be joining, so I know how many pics to look out for - a deadline update will be posted again, as usual, to remind you of deadlines or reminders.

:star: Please submit to the "Character Prompts" Folder - which will now be re-opened :star:

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!

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: 11th July

Looking for help!

Indeed I am, the group is blessedly sedate in terms of submissions coming through the queue, but I am looking for help with anyone willing to post journals and moderate activities with me.  This journal was kind of late in the coming because I had to muster the motivation to compile it!

So if anyone is willing to join me on the admin team to help run activities (including quizzes, the dares, AMAs etc), please let me know.  Moderate experience of submitting journals and maybe administrating for a group would be preferable, you don't need to know anything extensive as the graphics are simply images copied and pasted in (no CSS or HTML required).

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! :)
