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.

Hello everyone!

There's a tendency for moderators to rather go inactive after a while. This group is huge (the biggest blender group) and it's very time consuming and I'm a very busy guy myself.
To quote Dolph Lundgren in "Universal Soldier" (starring Jean-Claude Van Damme): "God damn it the whole fucking platoon's dropping like flies!" xD
Anyway, if there are quite a few moderators that process the submission queue, things will go quite smooth and everybody will be happy, no doubt.

As a moderator, you're in charge of making sure everyone respects the rules, so you read them yourself to start with, they're basically the very first thing displayed in the group page. Even so, a LOT of people have the tendency to disregard them heavily. Either because they're dA noobs or just don't give a shirt. After all, most people want the big fame without having to spend the time reading the fine print and other tediously boring things.

After you read the rules, all I ask is that you progress a few dozen deviations per week. I have the tendency to process about 10-25 first thing in the morning every few days or when I have some "idle" time, like having to wait for a render and stuff like that. You can conveniently check out dA and the group (as a moderator) from your browser without going to the website itself on a constant basis by using a very nifty extensions for Chrome/ium and Firefox, more about it over here

I've written a "small" guide about how I go doing things around, you might find it handy, especially if you want to apply as a moderator. Basically the demands are high while the satisfaction and rewards are all in your mind, provided you're an optimist and consider this group helps out the blender project in the bigger scheme :D

When you process deviations from your notification center… you need to check out each deviation individually (right click it, open in new tab, switch to new tab by pressing ctrl+tab; you can switch you previous tab by pressing ctrl+shift+tab). You must make sure that the title, description, category or tags mention blender (you can press ctrl+f and type in blender, then press enter). You can close a tab using ctrl+w hotkey. If you get any results, make sure you don't get fooled by the deviation being submitted to other small time blender groups.

After that, you need to make sure that the deviation is submitted in the proper category within the group. If it's not, if you have the time and you're in the mood, you can comment on the deviation's submission proposal regarding the broken rules. If the deviation is good stuff, you can approve it as long as you go into the group's gallery and manually move it afterwards into the proper category. A lot of people fail at submitting into the proper category, you will no doubt think they're idiots.

Sometimes deviations are made with other 3d packages or simply they have nothing to do at all with 3d or even computer generated graphics, or art itself. Other times the deviations are pure garbage or not high quality enough. Keep in mind this is a "club" after all, so we want to have rather decent stuff around. Reject! After all, while I do appreciate the power of the numbers and having you guys around, if you're "not there yet", there's no shame, there are plenty of other groups.

Do not feature deviations yourself, even more if they're yours. If you approve something that's interesting and will probably slip my eye, feel free to suggest it as a feature to me, by various ways: make a comment in the admin area, send me a note, leave a message on my profile and so on. I will consider it and let you know and also the artist who got featured, otherwise he won't get much satisfaction if he doesn't know about it. It's also a little satisfaction of mine featuring stuff around ^^

If you did read the rules and the stuff above and you're interested in volunteering some time, patience and energy, feel free to comment below and I'll consider you.

Thanks for reading this (with a grain of salt hopefully),
Yours truly

Can someone please make a 3D Render of Angela O'Haru?
KaraszKun Featured By Owner 22 hours ago  Student Digital Artist
Why not make one yourself? Blender is a free 3D Modeling program after all, but it takes time to learn how to use it and how to model.

Hello people !
I'm pretty new to Blender and I'm asking for help this time.
Usually, when I make a preview of my render first without texture, it should be white as usual but this time Blender renders it black. Even with texture.
Has anybody already saw this ? Fixed it ?…

Thanks in advance :)

Recent built my robot a car in Blender.  Holiday season and all...  got it out just in time, on the 24th.   Seems to dig it.      

Do love Blender stuff,  doing something creative beats writing crappy enterprise applications all day ;)

I'm new when it comes to blender and xnalara and I have a few questions. 

1. Can any of these xnalara models be in blender? If so, how do you do it?
2. Are there any more simple tutorial videos explaining blender?
3. Is it possible to create your own model and weapons, as well as environments in blender?

It would be very much appreciated that I know this so I can start making animations and pictures. Thank you.

P.S. If these questions are out of category, then I apologize.

Hello im looking for blender artists to make 3D robot models and animations and collaborate with me in creating a game.

I want to create a game similar to medabots, with few other concepts of my own that lack on EU/US games we had here and are not being done by the Japanese games, plus online multiplayer features that we all desired.

I want to create a game with the community, anyone can help, the game will be free and not pay to win have none of those freemium issues, even skins and bots paints will be free.

I have been thinking for years about doing a game similar to medabots, but even better and for all the world, since they just release it on Japan and games come in Japanese is really pissing me off. Also with medarot 9 out it made me think, plus all the new models and the new medachange thing makes me dislike the new games, I want the games as they wanted to be, like the first anime season in US/EU.

I am a PhD student with research on topics such as Artificial Intelligence, I also work a lot with Unity3D and other software to create simulations.
Since I create these, some parts of my work can be used to make a video game on my own.

I plan to have a 3D game world, and 3D battles, all will use ray-cast sensors, navigation meshes and path-finding so the bots can see and walk on the world correctly and smart. This will be useful for battles.

The AI of the bots will be my main focus.

I want people that wants to contribute, specially if you have knowledge with Blender (.blender and .fbx files) and animations (specially animations), or story/narrative or anything that could be of use and want to contribute for free to this feel free to contact me and I can provide a link to play a demo of the game, more information about the game (playable online), and other stuff.

Well what's the title for a moderator. Deviations aren't really getting into this group as much as they used to.
Archany Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2015  Student Filmographer
Eh just keep posting stuff, im really sorry about the deviations taking a year to get in it's just that we're busy.
DreadKnight666 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Deviations need to be manually approved. A lot of people submit non-3d stuff or deviations that are made using other 3d packages, so content in here needs to be filtered. There are a lot of submissions and not enough staff members and free time, so will consider you (and provide you with instructions). Gonna poke you this week.
