Group Info

A Pokémon-group where the specifics are very specific, and we're trying to collect some of the best pieces of Pokémon-art out there... ;)

Note: We have the right to decline an artwork if the art is not satisfactory enough. That is, we won't accept things that do not meet the criteria for being either moderate to high-quality art (in our opinion). Please do not flame and insult admins because of our decisions. Thank you.

For rules regarding art-submission, please look to the right of this box.

Feel free to donate points to this group at our admin's profile: radiantcharizard.deviantart.co… - Every donation helps us grow.

Rules for art submission!

We are a Pokémon group with specific art-submission rules.

Read this before submitting anything to the group! If you don't read this, you can't complain to the admins about the consequences that might arise.

That is to say, this is what you may submit in our group:
- Original artwork made by you.

- Pokémon that are officially released by Nintendo and Game-Freak.

- If you must insist on drawing trainers, they have to be official. That is, the human characters that are allowed are those from the animé and the games IF there's at least one official Pokémon in the artwork.

- Pokémon from all generations are welcome! Just make sure to place them in the correct folder.

- Submit Mega evolutions into the folder named "Mega evolutions".

- Any media (except cosplay, certain comics, and texts) is welcome so long as you've made the art yourself. That is, drawings (digital or by hand), sculptures, plushies, you name it, are welcome! :)

This is what you may NOT submit in our group:
- Art that you have not made yourself.

- Gijinkas, anthros, furries, or other things similar to those.

- Nudity/pornographic content is strictly prohibited. We want art for all ages.

- No Poké-fusions.

- "Imaginary" trainers (OC's). That is, your own trainer. Please, we are not interested in seeing your own character/trainer that you made up yourself. Keep to the official characters and Pokémon, please.

- Fakémon, fakemon. (Unofficial pokémon)

- Anything "Nuzlocke"-related. Includes comic strips!

- No cosplay, please.

- No "clones" (the terminology can be disputed here), that is... Major colour-alterations on official Pokémon, etc. For example, we do not want a blue Pikachu, a red Bulbasaur, or a yellow Charizard. This depends on the level of the "colour-alteration", so if you are not sure, contact us.

- No text submissions.

- Anything that is not Pokémon related. (No cross-overs. More info below)

Other than that, feel free to submit your beautiful art of Pokémon!

Note: We reserve the right to decline an artwork and new members if the art is not satisfactory enough. That is, we won't accept things that do not meet the criteria for being either moderate to high-quality art (in our opinion). Please do not flame and insult admins because of our decisions. Thank you.

I can't believe I have to say this, but: This group is for Pokémon-related art only. Don't submit My Little Ponies, Narutos, Digimon, and so forth. It doesn't matter if there is one Pokémon in the art, we aren't interested in anything but Pokémon in this group. I thought the name of the group was enough to hint at this as well as the rules above mentioning that this is a Pokémon group, but clearly not as I've received submissions with characters from the above mentioned series/games.

Furthermore, do not send in duplicate/multiple requests of the same work of art. This only takes extra time for the admins to go through, and we will only accept one of the pieces of art. Note that if this happens more than once, we will not accept any of your art.

If you break the rules we reserve the right to either:
- Not accept your art for a while.
or
- Kick you out from the group and/or ban you.

ALL OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED RULES APPLY TO THE FAVOURITES FOLDER AS WELL
I am still working on my master's thesis. It is basically finished now, but I am waiting on confirmation whether I get my degree or not.

Anyway... I started this group because I love Pokémon. I also started it because I was tired of all the Pokémon groups at dA since they all accept "everything". That means that "sub-par" art and pornographic content and all sorts of things mix together in an odd and unsuitable way. So I started this group in order to collect the "best" (in my opinion) art at dA. I have had much help from Sarah whom you all know as Devi-Tiger :icondevi-tiger:

More to the point: I am not feeling very well when I am managing this group. So much hatred from people who do not get their art accepted is hurtful. And I always dread having to turn someone down. This is mentally draining.

There are so many nice members here in the group, though, who manage to save my day a lot of the times with their kind responses.

But even though the purpose and intentions of this group has always been good and pure, the outcome is a collection of really good art, but at the cost of my well-being.

One could argue that I should share my responsibilities with more admins/people, but I can't do that. I think it might be related to an OCD or maybe the fact that I have Asperger's.

And sharing the responsibilities means letting through art that I think should not be here. This is a subjective group. And subjectivity is... well, obviously something that differs between person to person.

I have tried to collect points in order to host a contest for 3 years now. I have 57 points. Not sufficient for a contest, in my opinion. If I had a proper job, I would purchase 4000 points myself in order to host the contest. But I am sadly not that well-situated in life.

To sum up: I do not know the future of this group. I am not feeling well, and I might delete the group eventually. I really hope I don't, because there is so much amazing art here that I want to continue collect and share with the world. I had hoped to get contributors and also hold contests. But that doesn't seem to be a part of this reality.

I hope all of you are well, and I want to thank you for being members of this group. You all are important, and I appreciate all of your art. Thanks for your patience all of these years.

Sincerely,
Linn

If you would care enough to read the latest journal entry, you would see that I clearly am very busy at the moment. My master's thesis is obviously prioritized over managing this group. I am still managing the group, but not every day. You submitted your join request yesterday. I need to ask for a bit of patience. I can't be online all the time, especially not when I am (as I've already stated) working on my master's thesis.

I've checked your gallery, which I do with every member that wants to join. You are eligible to join by this group's standards, judging from what is on there at the moment. This process also requires a certain amount of time, and even if I wasn't working on my thesis, members would often have to wait a day or two for certain things to get submitted into the group. So: Welcome to the group, but please have a bit of patience in the future.
