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.

Why were my most recent submissions declined? I don't understand...
tatianangfung Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2016
Which submissions are you refering to?
AlexR1der Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2016  New Deviant Hobbyist Digital Artist
I believe they were the GLaDOS one and the Half-Lofe D0g one if I remember right.
tatianangfung Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2016
Hi Alex, they were not accepted due to the image resolution and quality. They seem to be blurry and out of focus, which is why they were not accepted. I am not sure from where did you save them and such, but you should try saving them in 100% resolution (in formats such as .png, .gif) so that they will remain sharp and clear images.

I'm extremely novice to pixel art, 
and in your rules, - it says lack of effort ? 
I hope I can bypass this rule, as I do put work into my pixels !!
and they're animated, I guess that adds to effort right ?

Could you point me to the deviation that got rejected?

I took a look at your pixel art gallery, and the main problem I see is the usage of non-pixel art effect such as gradation. I suggest you take a look at pixeljoint's forums and the pixel art tutorials they have there to further your knowledge of the tecnique.

About animation, and I don't want to sound insulting or anything in any ways, you are free to express yourself however you like, but making the character move up and down like that does not look like a big effort.

It's great that you want to try and animate your work, and If you want to experiment with animation, I suggest you study pixel art videogame's idle animation, and how the character joints, hair and clothes behave when moving up and down.

Happy learning, and have a good day!

Yes, I thought they were a bit too simple.

Of course not ! 
Its fine, - it doesnt' really require a big effort to just do some blinking like I did aha.

Thanks for the tip !

Thank you !! - I'm currently working on a fullbody, coloured and shaded, so I'm going to see if that gets accept ^^;
