Group Guidelines & Rules

Becoming a Member
If you are interested in joining our group you click the "Join this Group" at the big blue bar at the top of the page. A moderator will quickly review you for acceptance. When you are a member you then have access to submit work and suggest faves.

Submitting Work
:bulletred: We do not accept low-effort submissions. These are pieces that display a lack of a certain amount of detail and effort. This does not discriminate against beginner pixel artists though, because we will judge according to your level. For more information on pixel art, check out this forum.

:bulletred: We only accept genuine pixel art. This means work that is solely produced without aid of photoshop (or other programs like Sai, Painter...) filters, methods to create a 'pixelated' look, or editing pre-made sprites to make your own. Color reduction, the use of semi-transparency, and fonts that are not self-created are also not accepted. Images in formats other than .png and .gif will not be accepted (like .jpegs). This also means that backgrounds, shadows, textures, and any other non-pixel method will mostly likely not be accepted.

:bulletred: Artwork that is covered with watermarks will most likely be rejected.


:bulletblue: Must be pixel art, any other form of art will be denied. Tool shading is not classified in this group as pixel art, so if submitted it will be denied. Stolen, copied and "sliced" work is forbidden in this group. If found we will report your work. If you are unsure of what this means, click here for more details.
:bulletblue: We do not consider drawn work in a pixel format to be pixel art in the group, you must have a good understanding and experience of pixel art that shows through your work in order for us to accept your submissions
:bulletblue: Please have the submission be in a .gif or a .png. jpegs and other file formats should not submitted
:bulletblue: Select the correct category for your work. See below for category descriptions so you can determine the best place to put your work. If you are unsure, check the gallery to see what folder is best for your work.
:bulletblue: Only submit 1-2 works per week, otherwise we will deny your other submissions
:bulletblue: We reserve the right to move your work to other folders, deny your work if it is not appropriate for the group, and remove your work from the group if it becomes necessary
:bulletblue: These rules are subject to change.

Hello all!

We have decided to do a small update in the groups guidelines and rules, and for that please do continue reading.

A new folder named "Mixed-Media Pixel Works" is open, and in here we allow submissions that have some NPA elements (non-pixel-art). Such are some elements that contain gradients, blur, etc. HOWEVER, it doesn't mean we can accept a piece that has all NPA elements on it. We will only accept a piece if it is well made and has few NPA elements. For example, it should not exceed around a 25% of the piece, and other rules such as huge watermarks still don't apply and will be declined.

Any questions feel more than free to ask.
Remember also to check the group's  Guidelines and Rules.

My submission was declined but it was entirely made of pixels and nothing else.
I'm confused and a bit upset- its okay to decline it, but at least an answer as to why would be kind, thanks.
tatianangfung Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2016
What submission are you referring about?
Hatty-hime Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey, it doesn't matter anymore, someone said it was oekaki instead of pixel art.
Yu-EX Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
