We are a selective group; submit only your best work
If you don't like rejection, this probably isn't the group for you!
Only 3 submissions per week
All references and stock must be credited
All work must be yours
If you want to know why a piece of work was declined, you must ask us through the submission ticket or a note
Only submit your own work; do not submit other's work
If your piece was previously declined, do not keep resubmitting it over and over. Feel free to resubmit it once changes have been made.
If you are disrespectful to any of the staff then you will be banned immediately
We reserve the right to accept or reject work based on our own personal opinions
If you leave the group, your artwork leaves with you.
Our Criteria for Judging Works:
Must be Canon characters
All stock and resources must be credited; no exceptions
Lineart is neat
Sketches must have shading or look polished and complete
Coloring is clean and refined
Work is 100% yours
We're not looking for the best work: we're looking for work that you have clearly put time and effort into
Collabs are allowed if they're between you and another artist.
We Will Not Accept:
Images that violate DA policy
Pornography or Underage content
Work that you did not do, including dolls, bases, color edits, coloring in other artist's lineart that they did not draw specifically to collab with you, etc.
Original Characters (except in fanfiction and comics)
Work on lined paper
Simple, unfinished looking sketches
Works in Progress
Exact copies of canon images; add your own flair to it
Artwork that you spent 5 seconds on; put time into your artwork

Credit your sources when using stock art, brushes, or anything you didn't create yourself, even photo references.
