|Hi there! Thanks for dropping by. This here is just a list of rules/guidelines/FAQ's you should keep in mind as you browse this page. |
Who can submit art and how?
All members can submit art! Remember that you can only submit fanart of series published by Shojo Beat. There are gallery folders to distinguish each of these series, so make sure to submit to the correct one. Each submission requires one Founder or Co-Founder vote for it to be accepted. To submit art, just click on the "submit art" button at the top of the page, and select the CORRECT folder that your work is from!
Each folder is limited to only accept 5 deviations per member a day, to help prevent our gallery from being flooded with a particular series. ;D
Who can suggest favorites and how?
Again, all members can suggest favorites. The suggestion guidelines are the same as the gallery submission guidelines. However, there is NO limit on how many favorites you can suggest. (:
Is anything related to Shojo Beat manga allowed for both member submissions and favorite suggestions?
No. Traced and/or copied artwork are not allowed. Manga scan colorings are prohibited as well. Basically, anything that uses official art by the mangakas will not be accepted. Even though this is a fanclub, I still highly recommend people putting effort into their own, original fanart (heh). Pose referencing, use of stocks, and the like are acceptable, of course, as long as everything is credited in the Artist Comments. Cosplay pictures are allowed!!
Please, please, PLEASE only submit pieces that are about the series listed in our gallery. I hate turning down submissions but this group is about Shojo Beat the magazine, and Shojo Beat the publishing branch under Viz Media. That's why all the series are listed, so you know exactly what series are allowed.
Can you please add 'such and such' to the gallery?
Answer: Maybe. If for some reason I've missed adding a series folder to the gallery, I have no problems adding it/opening it. However, this is a group dedicated to SHOJO BEAT titles; hence the name of the group, and the series listed in our gallery.
If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to ask!
