While we do officially accept Fan Characters, we have a rather specific set of rules regarding them. This is a reminder that we feel is necessary because these rules were recently changed, so you might not be aware. Also, because we've received an excessive amount of characters placed in the wrong folders.


First and foremost: Fan Characters refers to ALL characters YOU created for non-original universes- SW, dragon age, WoW, DnD, Any Anime, etc.

Here are the rules regarding fan characters in this group:

Fan Characters
"Our rules regarding fan characters are as follows:
:bulletred:NOT ALLOWED: blood relatives, legal relatives, evil twins, clones, or any other variation of any canon character.
:bulletred:NOT ALLOWED: Personifications of, gijinka of, or gender swaps of any canon character.
:bulletred:NOT ALLOWED: Boyfriends/girlfriends/spouses of any canon character.
:bulletred:NOT ALLOWED: Any pieces that contain canon characters in there.
:bulletred:CONTESTS ONLY: Your FCs/OCs cosplaying as canon characters. Not in regular submissions.
:bulletred:ALLOWED:Fan characters who are visually distinct from canon characters and therefore not wearing the same clothes, colors, etc. The key criterion we will use is that people should not be able to mistake your FC for a canon character from that setting. Of course, if they look like someone from another canon setting, that happens a lot by accident, and that's okay.
:bulletred:Make sure your FCs go into the "Fan characters" folder. All other folders are for purely original characters.

Ideally, we would like fan characters who were created nearly from scratch, and based off the setting's universe itself, rather than its existing characters or plot."



Additionally, a quick reminder that we do in fact have a "Line Art" folder.
:bulletred: All completed Line Art goes into the "Line Art" folder. (No sketches or doodles; completed work only)

I should clarify that we have NO folder for doodles and sketches, because we only accept completed works in this group. Line Art is considered completed art because it has typically been cleaned or refined in some way. Please do not place line art, regardless of Original or Fan created characters, in any folder except this one.


Lastly, I am currently working out whether or not character/reference sheets for Fan Characters belong in the "Fan Character" folder, or the "Character and Reference Sheet" folder. You will not be penalized for putting them in either one for now, and you will  be notified when a decision has been made. ^^

PIGGY STATUS: 640/5000

Additional Info:
:bulletred: Submit your join requests once only. Unless it has been stated in your Correspondence messages that it has expired, DO NOT send in the SAME request more than once.

Besides, sending in the same request more than once would only increase the number of stuff we have to approve and makes the approval of your join/submission slower.

You can only submit two images a week to this group. Make it count.
Unless you are a comic folder owner.

If the character is based on an existing story universe that you didn't make, said character goes into the "fan characters" folder. Also, we have rules about what kinds of fan chars are allowed. Read our front page "rules" window for full details.

If the character's world/setting was made by yourself, however, it can go into Digital Art.

We have no restrictions against 3DCG itself. It's just another art tool.

We don't currently have a place for those, but we do have a journal we try our best to keep updated. I make it a featured announcement once a month typically.
