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:… - 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.
- Kick you out from the group and/or ban you.

Hello dear members.

I am having difficulties in my day-to-day life that makes it hard for me to be active at dA. I did get my master's degree, but there are no jobs available. People in my age group can't get any work partly because the government raised the retirement age, but also because there's too few workplaces and opportunities for work.

So, I am stuck, also called locked-in, at a part-time job. My boss is also a sociopath and harasses me every day. She tried to become my friend at first, or so I thought... turns out she only did that to learn my weaknesses and to manipulate me because of these so called weaknesses. I am overqualified for the work I am doing. I am doing my job as I should, I am doing a really good job, too. I do more than what is asked of me, but I receive no additional pay for the assignments I do that aren't mandatory. Still, my boss demands these things of me and threatens me that I'll get fired if I don't do them. So, I work full-time with a part-time pay. And I can't quit since I need the money. And while I work she also takes the time to comment on my appearance and personality. Critizing me any chance she gets, and she makes sure to tell me that I am worthless since I am not like her. She's a rich, old lady that hates everyone and everything that differs from her in any way. She also makes sure to dominate everyone and everything around her. And when you tell her to stop and that she's harassing people, she gets defensive and says that she is only doing that because everyone is "attacking her". Okay, so when we tell you that you should stop critizing people, you say we attack you? Wtf is this.

Anyway, all of this is making me feel ill. Both physically and emotionally. So, I usually don't have the energy to log in at dA and manage this group when I get home from this work. It exhausts me. I work 8-17 (+2 timezone in Europe) 5 days a week even though I am supposed to work 8-17 3 days a week. I only get paid for 3 days. This is illegal, but I can't do anything since they'll fire me if I say anything.

So, in short: I apologise to all of the members of Poké-Specific. You guys are awesome. I am logging in every now and then (as often as I have the strength for), but I am afraid it will be quite sporadically.

Just wanted to let you all know.

No prob! :)
jeaimelafrance Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
hi, will somebody accept my member request? :c
RadiantCharizard Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.

This is my group. I run it. And I'd like to keep it that way. No one is replacing me.
