Group Info

For Moderators/Contributors

:bulletpurple: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SUBMIT YOUR DEVIATIONS TO THE CORRECT FOLDER! So if a member wants to submit traditional art, it has to go in the 'Traditional Art' folder.
:bulletpurple: Only accept member requests, not contributors.


:bulletpink: Just click "Join our Group."
:bulletblue: You should be automatically approved as a member of the group.
:bulletgreen: Please put the club icon into your journal or signature so that we can become widely-known on DA! You can do this by typing : devheartofjapan : (without the spaces)
:bulletyellow: Once you're in, you can now start submitting! Over to the submitting rules…


:bulletpink: Because we're a Japan lovers club we only accept Japan stuff! Whether it's manga/anime, calligraphy, cosplay, photography, or anything related to Japan and Japanese culture.
:bulletblue: We reserve the right to decline any irrelevant submissions, so please be sure to explain the connection to Japan in your title/description, especially if you don't think we will immediately recognize it as Japanese! This will save you the trouble of being declined and having to resubmit.
:bulletgreen: Make sure that it is your work, not someone else’s that you are submitting. We don’t want a cat fight breaking loose.
:bulletyellow: You can only submit two pictures every one week, as we don't want to flood our members with too many deviations!
:bulletpink: To submit you must click "contribute to gallery," and then it's up to us to accept or reject!
:bulletblue: Please make sure you submit your artwork to the correct folders! If you have any questions about where to submit, please refer to this journal or ask an admin.


:bulletpink: Want to be our affiliate? All you need to do is send a application to affiliate, and we will review it and decide.


:bulletpink: HeartOfJapan would love to become a Supergroup so that we can use lots of neat features like polls and journal skins. But we can't do this without your help!
:bulletblue: If you have points you'd like to donate to us, please add them to the donation pool on TheUninvitedOne's profile.
:bulletgreen: See more details and a list of prizes for points here.


:bulletpink: HeartOfJapan is now offering advertising opportunities for its members! For the low price of 50 :points:, we will send out a group journal advertising your Japan-related event, store, booth, etc.
:bulletblue: It will allow you to reach our 3,500+ watchers and help us become a Supergroup!
:bulletgreen: Act fast, though, as advertising space each month is limited and first-come, first-serve. More details here.


:bulletpink: Got something you need translated? Be on the lookout for a translators list - coming soon!

Hi, I've moved it for you along with your Tokyo Vibes piece. 
Please take extra care to ensure these are submitted to the right gallery in future, as normally we would decline the piece for that reason, which would be a shame. 
IchigoMurasaki Jan 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

I'd hate to ask but...Could someone translate these two manga volumes for me, please?…


All I can offer is free art after it's translated.
