I have a message for you on behalf of the Admin Team.
We've noticed that recently a ton of deviations
have been submitted to the wrong folders.
We'd like to remind you to pay attention to where you're submitting your work since it benefits not only us, but you as well!
Since we're a big group,
we've limited submissions to two per week
so your inboxes don't get flooded. But if you submit something to the wrong folder,
it still counts as one of your submissions even if it was not accepted. So if you submit two works to the wrong folders, you've got to wait an entire week before you can try resubmitting them. To help you out, we've put together a journal
in case you're having difficulty finding the right folder
for your work.(If you're one of the members who's been submitting to the right Folders, disregard this Journal and keep on doing what you're doing!)Fanart:
If your deviation is a fanart
for a manga, anime, or game,
we have a special folder
for that. All manga, anime, and game fanart
should be submitted to this folder,
whether it's traditional
Please note that even realistic drawings of anime/manga/game characters go in this folder
and not our other fanart folder, and similarly, any fanart for real people
, even if drawn in anime/manga/chibi style, do not
go in this folder.
If it's a drawing of a famous person (Japanese actor/actress, singer, historical figure, etc., drawn in any style
, including anime/manga style), there is a special folder
for that too, called Other Japan-Related Fanart.Neither one of these should be submitted to the Traditional or Digital Art folders. If you submit them there, they will be rejected. The Traditional and Digital Art folders are used for all other non-fanart deviations.OCs:
Please submit all
drawings of original characters to either Traditional or Digital Art, even if they are OCs for a manga/anime/game.
Our reasoning behind that? They are your
original creations, so therefore they are not fanart!Cosplay:Cosplay
pictures should always be submitted to Cosplay
, not Photography
. We created the Cosplay folder
recently for a reason!Photography:
Nothing besides Photography
(photos of Japanese architecture, landscapes, products, people, etc.) should be submitted to Photography
.Please make sure you pay attention to folder names.
Just as a side note: Please keep in mind that this is a Japan
-related group, so all works you submit must be related to Japan
in some way, shape, or form, otherwise they will not be accepted. If you are unsure whether admins
will know why your art is Japan
-related, put something in the description or title to help us out! Remember that if we can't tell why it's related to Japan
, we're not going to put it in our group.
If you ever have a question about where your art should be submitted, all you have to do is ask! Send a note to the group or write on the group's wall and we'll be happy to help you. That way you won't have to keep resubmitting and we won't have to keep rejecting your wonderful work! Believe us, we hate
doing that because we want everyone to be able to share their art in our group.
We hope these tips will help the submission process go more smoothly for everyone. がんばって！
Best of luck with future artwork, and keep in mind that we're still collecting Points
to become a Supergroup
! So if you have any extra Points
lying around, donate to =TheUninvitedOne
