I hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to state that we have been lenient in the past and now we're going back to enforcing our rules! The two rules that need emphasis are "NO screenshots and renders are allowed"!!!
Screenshots do include traced pictures! So if there's an edited/traced screenshot of a character that you claim to be your OC, then it'll be denied.
On the other hand, using a base is still allowed only if you credit the base maker and put the link of the base in the deviation. If you claim that you used a base when the base link is just a screenshot, it still counts as tracing, which means your deviation will be denied to this group.
If you submit a screenshot, traced picture, or a render, it will be denied.
Have a wonderful day!!!
JUST AN UPDATE.
I will start rule shaming people :\ Because I am tiny and angry that we keep having to remind people about the same rules that have been in place since the beginning of this group way back when the original founder created it.
