Rules Sign by etNoir
:police:

PLEASE READ BEFORE CLICKING THE JOIN BUTTON!



:bulletblue: Please take note of the following:

THIS GROUP IS FOR AVATAR CREATORS TO SHOWCASE THEIR FREE AVATARS!



:bulletblue: Potential members must provide a link to at least TEN FREE avatars to apply. This is most easily done by putting the free avatars in a specific folder in the gallery then putting the link to the gallery in the join request.
:bulletblue: Commissions do NOT count as part of the ten, not do any avatars that require points to use.
:bulletblue: The ten avatars CANNOT come from Screenshots, which violates dA's TOS and © policies. Also, NO Avatars from "Sprite" sites/games or Avatar-Creator sites will be accepted.
Google Images are NOT Stock Stamp by poserfan
:bulletblue: The Group does NOT accept "Lick" Avatars, NOR are excessively animated deviations accepted; i.e. avatars that could cause a seizure.
:bulletblue: Avatars should be clearly marked FREE and in the CORRECT CATEGORY (Customization/Icons/Avatars/deviantART).
:bulletblue: Only when providing a link to your free avatars will your membership request be considered!!
:bulletblue: Membership is for the avatar makers so they may submit to our Gallery.

FAQ #662: How do I create an Avatar, to display on my User Page and next to my Comments?
FAQ #214: What are deviantART's policies regarding avatars?

:bulletblue: Please read Our membership policies prior to requesting to join.
:spotlight-left: PLEASE LINK TO YOUR FOLDER OF FREE AVATARS IN THE JOIN REQUEST, SO THE ADMINS CAN EASILY FIND THEM!

:bulletblue: ALL work must also be 15kb or under file size and be precisely 50x50 pixels for deviant avatars, or 30kb or under and 100x50 pixels for Group avatars.

:bulletblue: If you don't have 10 free avatars, we invite you to +devWatch the group and participate in our Challenges.
:bulletblue: If you are interested in learning how to create avatars, check THIS LIST OF TUTORIALS to learn how to make them (Gimp is a free download and there are tuturials especially for that program).

I'm chucking the last challenge, since there isn't any interest, AND I'm making a change at the group.

The Challenge Folder will now be open only to Members. The group is getting way too many submissions from non-members that have nothing to do with providing free avatars to the community. From here on in, any deviant that isn't already a member who wants to submit an avatar to the challenge will have to leave the link in a comment on the journal or in a note to the group.

On to the :new: challenge!

FANTASY!

Fantasy is defined as:
....genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot element, theme, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genres of science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three, all of which are subgenres of speculative fiction.


:bulletwhite: The challenge can be anything pertaining to Fantasy. Magic, Supernatural Creatures, Wondrous Worlds, Ancient Myths, Gods and Goddesses... anything that can be construed to be part of the Fantasy Genre.

:bulletwhite: All Avatars must adhere to DA's TOS and ©/™ policies. All Avatars must be created by the Deviant without the use of screenshots/caps, videos or other copyrighted materials. Legitimate Stock can be used as long as the Avatar adheres to the stock artist's rules. Remember, Google is NOT a stock site.
FAQ #662: How do I create an Avatar, to display on my User Page and next to my Comments?

:bulletwhite: Group or Deviant Avatars Accepted.
