Welcome to Draw-my-Oc! We are a group for people looking for requested art of their Original Characters! The idea behind the group is to alow you to submit references of your characters into sorted folders so people looking to do requests can find and draw your characters for you! We welcome both those looking for art and those looking to create art.
Here at Draw-My-Oc your Join request is always automatically accepted! So feel free to click that Join button!
Unfortunately with great group comes great responsibility! So there are rules that we expect those submitting to the group to follow! So please feel free to skim through this glorious text below!
Rules are subject to change, please refer to these if you have any issues with your devations being removed or placed in different folders before you ask an admin
I will be lenient with the rules as they are new and I know I have trouble reading through all of these things, but if I find a deviant is being rude and continually breaks the rules intentionally I may be forced to remove you from the group, if this happens to you, and you believe it was an unfair judgement, you may wish to plead your case, in this event please send SSCAdopts a note and we'll see what we can do.
DO NOT STEAL ARTWORK OR OTHERS CHARACTERS! - This is not just an offence against our rules but it directly violates the deviant art terms and services, you will be banned immediately and your account/Deviation will be reported!
Please be nice to other members and admins of the group - I feel this goes without saying, please do not harass members or admins~
Thank those who complete requests for you! - it doesn't take allot, a little thanks is much appreciated for the hard work people put in!
Original Characters ONLY - It's in the title, we are looking for original characters ONLY, characters made for fandoms, like MLP, FNAF, undertale etc. are absolutely fine as long as the character is yours!
Please submit into the correct folders OR into the 'I DONT KNOW WHERE TO SUBMIT' file - this is not just for keeping the group tidy, it's so artists can find your references amoung the folders!
Keep Requests you draw PG-13 and do not draw offensive art of others OC's - There are young people in this group and the characters deserve respect, if you feel like someone is making content that offends you or your characters let an admin know!
Please submit FULL BODY references of your characters - If you expect artists to draw your characters they have to know what they look like, due to this rule submissions are subject to vote and will only be submitted if the deviation qualifies! This rule doesn't apply to characters with written references!
Please include colour on your OC references - A neat little colour pallet would be the best option for this but it is not required. If you wish to submit a character that isn't coloured, please include colours in the description of your deviation! This rule doesn't apply to characters with written references! Although colour ideas are welcome!!
ONE reference per character - Due to the amount of people submitting multiple random pictures I am limiting the number of references you can submit for a character, if your character somehow has more than one reference say for a transformation or some sorts, please inform me [And I'll add both] Or provide a link in the description of your deviation to the second reference!
Please use the 'Completed Request' folder to submit the art you made FOR THE GROUP - any art placed in here that wasn't made for the group [i.e a random request from someone else] will be removed. Submissions to this folder will be unlimited and automatically accepted! If I find this judgment is abused I will put this on a subject to vote also
Any other art work of OC's that isn't classed as a reference or is not a 'Completed Request' is not to be submitted here - I want to make this clear this group is not supposed to be used for free advertisement of your original character artwork, it is more of a collection of references and a resource tool!
Please refer to the folder info BELOW - This info is here to help you decide where you are to submit!
Any original (Closed or Open) species adopts should be placed in the folder that most suits them, for example, due to their human shape Xynthii should be placed in the human/humanoid folder~
If in doubt please place in the 'I DONT KNOW WHERE TO SUBMIT' Folder</i>
The group will eventually be using this to promote our favourite characters and artists that have done a great job on requests, submissions to this are completely closed, and admins will be the ones deciding what goes here!
This folder houses all your human and humanoids. This includes all Nekos i.e. any humans with small amounts of extras like animal ears and even wings!
Any and all anthro characters go here! This is any human part animal creature that walks on two legs and looks considerably more like an animal in the facial region!
Animals and feral characters belong here, this is your canine, feline and equine etc place. This is also a place you can put any species that is mostly feral, such as Fanfoxes~
This category may be a little confusing for some, but what we are mostly looking for is creatures that take on unique shapes and so cannot be categorised in any of the other folders. If a humanoid character is of an unnatural colour/skin type [like bright blue and slimy] this will count as a monster, this is a very vague description I know, but I will not be penalising anyone who submits into this folder by accident!
Fandom Character References
These are characters you've created as part of a fandom! This can include characters based off games, cartoons, anime or even comics~ For example: My Little Pony, Gemsona's (Steven universe), five nights at Freddy's, DC universe etc.
Have an idea for a character but don't have a visual picture yet? Don't worry, put any written references for characters here! Written references may also include links to pictures of the OC. If you have an original character that you want to submit but you haven't drawn a full reference that meets the requirements of the group, it is probably best to create the character their own written reference~</b>
Any and all requests that were created by members of the characters in the folders! Eventually the group will be doing journal features for the deviants that created for the group!
Submit any commission info you have here! Can be in the form of a journal or picture, just make sure you remove the deviation if you are no longer doing them!
I DONT KNOW WHERE TO SUBMIT
Simple! This is for any and all who don't quite know where they are going to submit their deviations! You may also submit here if you're feeling a bit lazy~
What if I don't have my Original Characters on Deviantart?
Don't fret I will be putting links to characters in people's Toy Ho.uses or FA characters pages and references into journals within the folders to allow users that use these sites to make their references available! [This will also work for those with characters in their stash]
