Aw'right gaiz the folders are all set.
Geez, you wouldn't believe how much crap there was. =_= And by "crap", I don't mean bad pieces of work (necessarily) I mean the ginormous messes in the folders. I mean, geez, it's like you people don't know what "Solo" or "group" means. There were tons of solo pictures in the group folder and most of it is probably my fault because the last time I tried cleaning stuff out I probably moved it to the wrong folders but honestly...
Alright then, we've got some new folders (hooray) and some more specific folders that should be addressed.
Hopefully I can get this blog done before I go insane.
< - The Feature folder is the only folder that deviations will need approval to be placed in because I want this folder especially to have clean, neat work and not just some crappy scraps and sketches. I want this folder to be the pride of the group so the work that looks the best has a place to be enjoyed in and not jumbled up with everyone else's work. I'm not saying that none of your work is bad, I just want a special folder that only the best can go in to be appreciated by itself. This means that sketches, WIPs, Scraps, bases
(have a slim chance of making it here, however, if it is not obvious that it was/is a base then it has a chance) or work that is not colored and shaded properly will be denied straight away. You will get a message telling you why it was denied but if you resubmit it to the correct folder we will gladly accept. Check out what has made it there so far!
< - The Groups Folder is for work with two or more people but does not include couples.
So work with only two people like partners or friends is okay, but couples are not. This is because we already have a folder set up for this category (which I'll explain next).
< - This is the group where you can put your pairings and or romantic stuff. Two people only, obviously, and your work must be colored in or else it belongs in the >Sketches, Line Art and WIPs
< folder. If it is Mature
work, it belongs in our >Mature
< - The folder where your OC is alone. No group shots, and no more than one person. I mean, that is
what solo means. I think you understand. Work must also be colored in to be in this folder or else it belongs in the Sketches, Line Art and WIPs
>Profiles and Bios
< - Profiles, bios and timelines can go here. It can be written work or a drawing, just as long as it talks about your OC or shows off their form from different angles.
>Memes and Collabs Folder
< - A folder where work you worked on with another deviant, or drew memes like the "___ Grab my! meme" or such. Doesn't matter how many people there are or whether it's colored as long as it's complete. If it isn't complete it goes here: Sketches, Line Art and WIPs
< folder. However, this does not apply to collabs.
Collabs can be open, meaning they can be unfinished as long as there's room for another person to join.
< - If you're selling something like a costume or a character they go here.
>Sketches, Line Art, and WIPs
< - The folder for work that is either incomplete (Work In Progresses), not colored (Line Arts), or is just pencil work (sketches). Although your work may be nice, we would prefer it if it were colored and cleaner than just graphite. Some pieces colored in colored pencils (or even crayon) will go to our other folders but most will end up here.
>Manga and Fake Screen shots
< - Work that is either supposed to be a page from a fan made manga, or work that is supposed to like it had come directly from the anime is added here. This includes work with captions because it shows that they are supposed to be talking with the captions on like the anime. This includes any work with the Naruto insignia as well or work that looks like it's a drawing for the beginning of their chatpers, or work that is inked in similar to manga work.
< - Written work like stories and fan fiction belongs here. Written work with previews are allowed here as well, just so long as it's the preview for writing.
< - Work submitted for contests from this
group meaning work made specifically for any contests we might have. If it is contest work for another group or person it belongs in any of the other folders.
< - The folder work for any
work 18 and older. This includes fan fiction and any sexual references.
And that's about all guys. Feel free to just browse through the folders if you need more explanation as to what the folders are for, but I have a feeling you're a smart group and will already know what to do.
All the folder names are links so you can just click on them to visit the folder.
All submissions are accepted immediately at this point, so thanks for taking the time to read this very long blog, and I hope you start submitting again. Questions, comments, or concerns are welcomed, so feel free to ask.
