4 main things go into adding art to the "OC-Select" group Gallery.
-An ethnic bent
-And a QUALITY standard.
the last 2 are going to be a bit subjective.
• Original means original. Your own character, stories and universe.
Not characters created for the Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Disney, Dragonball or Twilight etc universes.
• Ethnic, to be blunt, means Not Euro-Centric.
So even if it's an alien it should probably have human ethnic features of some kind in body, dress or paraphernalia.
• Rated G to PG-13 means no full or near nudes and no highly suggestive sexual poses and the like.
You know pretty much what i'm talkin' bout. If a character's twerking with a g-string on or is standing with nothing but big breast under a thin veil as THE main focus then it's probably not for us. Plenty of other places on DA for that right?
• QUALITY, fairly high level of craftsmanship. Pro A++ is GREAT but nothing really below college level C- or below art thanks. As mentioned before the last 2 are a going to be a bit more subjective than the 1st 2.
Having said all that there's now a 'SUBMISSIONS' folder where anyone can submit whatever they like. It will be reviewed and items voted on by our 'team' for inclusion in the featured gallery.
Why the rejection of some art?
Sorry about that, we are grateful to have many of your images in the featured gallery and in favorites.
The only reason for the rejection of any image is either that it doesn't fit our group mission or it doesn't come up to the quality or modesty standard we are trying to maintain. Also if you have 20 or more similar images of the same characters we may only use 5 or 6 and may pick up some of the others at a later date.
Please submit any work you like, yours and other folks. We love adding new pieces but there's no guarantee everything is going to make it in.
It's OC "select"
(at least if i had spelled "select" right when i made the group)
thank you all for your support and participation. It continues to be inspiring.
