Featured Folder Guidelines

The Featured Folder is for outstanding artwork that we all can
use as inspiration. Because of this, we would like you, the members, to be able to suggest amazing artwork for us to use in our Featured Folder!

When you submit a piece of art as a suggestion to be Featured, it will require three "YES" votes from our lovely admin for it to in fact be featured. This is an excellent opportunity for you all to share with the other members of the group exactly what inspires you as an artist. Any kind of "creature" can be accepted into the Featured Folder, so get suggesting!

These are the lovely people, without whom this group would not be possible! Be sure to send them some love!

An inquiry as to something I'd like to submit and a possible conflict with a rule. I am only able to submit traditional drawings (that are honestly quite terrible; not a great artist in the slightest) via iPod on here. Anything outside of this is currently beyond the realm of my capability, so I have to take photographs with my iPod camera in order to submit them here. Would this warrant an instantaneous rejection from the admins despite this unfortunate circumstance?

All submissions are subject to quality control.  Part of this does include image clarity.  iDevices, cell phones, and webcams hardly ever take a nice quality photo, and often make things out of focus, off colour, or very grainy sadly.  The best thing to do would to either find access to a scanner (I know kinkos has scanners, public libraries, schools and friends do too!) Or use a better quality camera on a tripod in natural lighting for the best photo possible (even point and shoots can do the job if you work with them!)

I see. Thank you for the helpful response, and I apologize. Guess I won't submit anything here anytime soon. But I guess that can mean more time to improve and have my sketches halfway to mediocre. :)

I think I've asked this before, so sorry if I'm repeating myself, but is fan art of other creatures allowed in the group?
EvlonArts Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Fan art of official franchisee is not.  This means, games, movies, books, comics, ect.  This also extends to fan-characters, or things like fakemon.
Fan art of say, your friend's character/artist you admire is allowed, provided it's their original creature (so basically as long as it wasn't a fan-character to begin with, then it's totally fine)

For example:
Submission of a dragon, Smog from LotR.  This would be declined.
Submission of a centaur, fan character from HP's centaurs as stated by artist.  This would be declined.
Submission of a phoenix, made from classical lore of the bird and interpreted by the artist.  This would be accepted.

This does not mean artist may not take inspiration from books, movies, comics, games, ect of their creatures, but it some times comes down to -how- closely does this look like a creature from thus-and-so fandom, though frequently the artists will directly state fan art of: ___

Ah thank you very much! I'll keep that in mind then. =) My fanart was of an official franchise, so I wanted to ask before hand!
EvlonArts Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Yep, no problem!
