The following things are examples of what we look for in an adoptable submission. If we find that your adoptables lack any of them to a certain degree, your sheet is automatically rejected. If you want critique or pointers as to why your adoptables were rejected or how they could be improved for acceptance, you are more than welcome to ask. Please ask any/all questions pertaining to your submission on the submission log itself or via a note (with proper links) to the group. Do not ask questions like this on the front page, they will be hidden and you will be redirected to the proper forum.Lineart:
Lineart should be anatomically correct (or stylistically close), neat, clean, and of full body. Any lines that are shaky, scribbly, sketchy or clearly demonstrate a poor understanding of the specie's anatomy will be rejected. Also please bare in mind the overall size of the image too. Anything really small will be rejected, this includes pixel lineart that you might use for an icon or some sort of avatar.
Please bare in mind on the pose too. If the angel/view/pose limits how much of the body/design you can actually see, it will be denied. A perfect example on this would be, anything of or similar to this pose shall be denied, no matter how nice the art might be. [link]Colouring Jobs
Colouring jobs must be neat, complete and in the lines. They must FILL the entire space provided, there must be no messy white patches between the color and the lineart and there must be no grainy white stuff around your lines WHATSOEVER.
This results from the misuse of lineart in layering programs and is easily remedied by setting your lineart layer to MULTIPLY and coloring on a layer underneath. If you are confused there are plenty of colouring tutorials on deviantART and there is even one in our gallery. *See below for program specific screenshots*
In addition coloring jobs must be carefully done. Markings should not be edgy or messily done. Any markings that are haphazardly placed left and right within the lineart (or even outside of) display a lack of organization and will be rejected.SAI - ExampleGIMP - Example
Photoshop - Example **COMING SOON**Coloring TutorialDesign complexity:
All designs that come through our group must have a variety of markings and colors to pass this stage of the Quality Control process. Simply re-coloring the same markings on 10 different sparkle-wolves won't cut it. We expect to see differences between your designs and a certain level of thought put into each one. Quality, not quantity. We also would like to see basic color theory exercised in your adoptables so if we find that the colouring schemes of your adoptables clash or demonstrate little to no thought we will reject them.*** Comments are hidden because this is a RECYCLED journal ***
