be polite with everyone.
If you ever act rudely or do/say something offensive towards anyone you'll be banned from the group and have your works removed from the galleries.
spam the profile with links or anything silly or useless; such comments will be flagged as spam and hidden. If you want something advertised ask in a note: there is an appropriate section for that.
you have some complaints, send us a note. Don't insult other people nor their art. If you do, you will be ignored and banned from the group.
Everyone can join the group as a member, and every request will be automatically accepted. Don't feel discouraged if your pieces don't immediately enter the group; we're here both to help the members correct their flaws and improve with their skills, and to make sure that the watchers can enjoy a good selection of artworks from our group, and not be spammed with just anything that is being submitted. Try to understand that.
To join as a contributor you have to be accepted
first, because contributors can vote for deviations to be approved to the group or declined and are supposed to give feedback when people ask for it. The contributors requests are closed, if you want to be one, send the group a note with "CONTRIBUTOR" as object. Then I will send you an invite myself.
-How to submit: To add an artwork (once you joined the group) use the "contribute art" button, or choose a folder and click on the "+" button on the top right, DON'T PUT LINKS ON THE PROFILE'S COMMENTS! The message will be hidden as spam.
-Time limits: One submission a week.
-Submit to the correct folder, each one has its own description if you open them. Submissions sent without choosing a folder will be declined, with a notification. And you'll have to re-submit.
-Deviations put in storage found in our galleries will be automatically removed from the group, without notice. If you don't wish to display a deviation in your gallery there's no reason to keep it in our group.
-Deviations removed from the group by yourself can't be re-submitted
-You can submit your own pieces as well as suggesting other people's works.
-Any declined submission can still be submitted to the favourites folder.
-Once you submit a work, do not re-submit the same piece again if it's been declined, nor if it's still pending for a decision. If you think the approval is taking too long, you may leave a message on the panel of the piece you've submitted, not on our group profile.
-The submissions go through a voting process so if your piece has been declined and you don't know why, you can simply ask for a critique (if you didn't break any rules it would probably be a matter of quality) in the comment box of the approval message of that submission (the one which says that your picture is being reviewed/has been accepted/declined).
Don't send a note to the group to ask for a critique
-What is acceptable and what is not:
Your work has to be Sailor Moon related, but you can chose to represent the subject in any style you want, be it Naoko style, anime style, realistic style, or your own personal style.
You can submit redesigns, realistic versions of the characters, any kind of personalizations on condition that the character is still well recognizable, without having to read the title.
Only finished works. No sketches, linearts and WIPs. If you made a drawing and plan to color/refine/correct it later, don't submit it until you have finished it because we won't accept different versions of the same artwork. Even if the second one is better and more complete than the first you sent.
No rude, vulgar, offensive or too explicit violence or sexual contents. Only artistic non integral (showing private parts) nudity is accepted. Soft yuri and yaoi too; as well as some blood.
No literature in general; be it fanfictions, poems... nor manga pages of your fan comic.
Only Sailor Moon real characters, no OCs. This group is dedicated to the universe created by Naoko Takeuchi only.
No traces, pixel dolls, vectors, bases and images created with some “generator” or "maker" program.
You can use references of course, but only to create a new and original drawing, not to entirely reproduce screenshots, official pictures or other existing images, unless you put some personal touch or creativity in them and they really stand out compared to the original. When you use references, by the way, be sure to credit them with a link.
No coloring or re-coloring of existing pictures, manga scans, wallpapers, stamps, manipulations of screenshots, gifs from the anime or art-book pics or fanarts not belonging to you etc. The artwork has to be completely created by you.
No super tiny images (this includes icons, sprites, stamps...), unless they really show care, creativity and details. Similarly, no artworks that have been shrunk to an awfully small size, making it hard to see the details.
Only collaborations between 2 artists are accepted, not colorations of a lineart that is free to color for everyone, unless it's the artist of the lineart who colored it (as already said, we don't accept several versions/colorations of the same piece).
Cosplays are accepted but from a serie of many shots chose only the best and most original ones and not very similar photos. We will be a little more strict with these submissions because we want the group to be focused mostly on drawings then photos.
Crafts are now accepted but only if they are made by you and not bought somewhere. Pay attention to their presentation as well (the quality of the photo). Most of the work must be done by you, so simply slapping a design on a t-shirt or any object is not enough. We're also not accepting garage kits anymore.
FOR ANY DOUBT OR SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE ASK BEFORE SUBMITTING
