Submission Rules

:bulletpink: Please read! :bulletpink:

You will run the risk of having your work rejected, or even becoming banned from the group, if you do not follow these simple rules when submitting your work to us. Bacon Emoticon by kiddomerriweatherBacon.

:bulletorange: You are allowed to submit a maximum of 5 deviations per week to the group. This is more of a warning, as deviantART will not allow you to submit further deviations when this limit is reached.

:bulletred: This group is a show-case! We don't collect everything just because it was made in Blender. We appreciate quality over quantity, so don't let it surprise you if your work gets rejected. Self-moderation is vital when submitting your work.

:bulletred: Submissions must specify in the description that they were made with Blender, or in the case of multiple applications being used, what was Blender's role was in the process. We're a group that showcases what Blender can do, not what, for example, 3ds Max can do. Please make it easy for us to verify that your work was made in Blender, by mentioning it's role in the description.

:bulletred: Submissions must be made to the proper galleries! Please carefully decide what gallery you would like your work to be shown in, as we will reject any submissions that have been submitted to an inappropriate gallery. Teacups and saucers are not characters!

:bulletorange: Some galleries contain descriptions of what work can be submitted to them, so if you are unsure where to submit, head to our galleries page and click on one to find out more!

:bulletred: Avoid duplicate submissions. Please don't submit two similar deviations, such as a re-render from another angle. Choose the one render that you would like to have featured on our group. Remember, you can always link to other versions of the render in your description.

:bulletgreen: An exception to the previous rule is with deviations submitted to the Work In Progress gallery. You may submit multiple renders of the same subject to the WIP gallery, provided the time between each submission is long enough to justify significant progress has been made.

Hey folks! Bart from BlenderNation here. It's SO nice to see how active this community is. I'll be sure to check out your art on a regular basis and repost the best pieces on my site.

Welcome to the club, Bart!
It was a sculpted hellhound on the official blender website that pretty much got me hyped about getting into blender as I recall. Good blender artwork needs more promotion indeed, as it might just have the same effect on others.

I would appreciate if there were any other active moderators or being paid a little to do this.

Doing this in my spare time and it takes a lot of time and work while I don't earn anything from it at all, usually getting annoyed by people not reading the rules and demanding explanations of why their deviations keep getting rejected or demanding instant approval of their work. This group is a privilege, there are other groups and not all submissions go in just because they were done with blender.

I'm going to offer an option to get submissions accepted fast and also promoted indefinitely in exchange of some dA points.

For the record, is there an easy way to upload .blend files (or exported formats) to DeviantArt? I know you can just create a large GIF file and upload that but I was thinking of a model viewer or something similar-

Any help will be appreciated.

Some people do 360 degrees turn around renders as a single sprite sheet, which they use in some flash wrapper to allow viewing just one sprite at a time, controlling rotation and even auto rotating the model.

Put them in a zip file. If I remember correctly you can upload zip files to dA.

I'm looking for someone to teach me to learn how to make 3d anime characters and clothing, also to Learn how to import them into poser where I can animate them after. I tried using online tutorials but they are really frustrating And I don't understand them. I learn differently then most people. I need someone to teach me slowly step by step. Also looking for A easy program to use.

If render is super different, you could post. Anyway, lots of time passed, you could have avoided the group rule completely by now.

hi, i just joined your group and have a question re your last rule listed above, where you say "provided the time between each submission is long enough to justify significant progress has been made."

what if i have two renders of the same models but with completely different materials, textures and lighting? would i have a wait an arbitrary amount of time before submitting them to the wip gallery?

I am trying to edit a game model, but part of the texture is screwy. It all looks right except on the actual part you use of the Grindstone. Its messed up like crazy there. Can anybody good at blender tell me how to fix it with Blender? I'm a novice to most function in blender.

In the group's description, it says that Blender only takes 25 MB... but that isn't true anymore...

Now it's over 100 MB for Blender 2.69. So, can you update the description plz! :)
