Deviants

By Tuesday, July 1, 2014, we will be publishing a journal to promote deviants that are doing commissions on this website. If you want to participate in any way, please read the section below labelled “Rules” and then go to the bottom of the journal to see how you can apply.

Rules


Right now I plan to stick with deviantART users for management purposes[Note].

The promotion will be sorted out with the following information:

:bulletblue:Your Username
:bulletblue:Some samples based on the commissions the artist showcases or has chosen to promote themselves.
:bulletblue:A brief description of the artist and/or their goals/situations.
:bulletblue:A link of the journal that contains said commissions.

This said, the promotions (as presented in the journal) will not be promoting the following:

:bulletred:Explicit Content
:bulletred:Non-deviantART Users (the group's promotions are mostly meant to serve for deviantART users)

Other Rules


:bulletblue: The promoted members do not have to be an explicit member of the SonicFreaks-United group. As long as the promoted materials are Sonic-themed in any way, you're pretty much good to go.
:bulletblue: We intend to keep promoting members on a monthly basis for as long as there's people that needs to get promote.
:bulletblue: We hold the rights to decline your submission!
:bulletblue: In case you want to dispute your promotional submission, contact FreakyEd right away.

:bulletyellow: Specific Deviations to Promote - In case you want to have that extra degree of control, tell us which deviation you want us to show on the journal.

:bulletblue: Your Reasons -  If you need the money to help for an emergency or you just need a quick buck, tell us right here. THis will also help you, in the case of an emergency, to get top priority if the situation calls for it[note]

Method 2 - Google Docs

just a bit of heads-up, but even though my fanfic is supposed to be an altered retelling of the old genesis era, a couple of changes i have in mind (particularly a character's personality) might be a bit more than some people can tolerate. should that be the case, feel free to ignore my existence and move on to something more worth your time =P

You don't have to worry about your fanfic submission being rejected from our group just because it differs from the game canon. The only reasons why your fic would be rejected was if it didn't follow our rules:

sonicfreaks-united.deviantart.…

As you can see, we don't have any rules against taking creative liberties, so don't worry about it! Unless your fic contains explicit blood, gore, and/or sexual content, in which case, eh, we'll allow it in if you wanna make a censored version. We appreciate you taking the time to warn us about character interpretations we might find objectionable, but we honestly could care less about that. Alternate interpretations happen all the time in fanfic, that's the freedom of writing fic for a thing you love! You don't need no stinkin' rules unless you think you do!

Oh for the love of Geoffrey St. John, I ain't worried about no stinkin' rules! :lol: It's just for some of those people that tend to be sticks in the mud when it comes to what they prefer that give me the second guess...

Got myself an idea... and a question. (not a group member yet though)

i'm thinking about making a piece of fanfiction that, barring a better summary, is an altered retelling of the events in sonic 2 and sonic 3 & knuckles. would that be ok for your fanfiction spot or is it going to be stuck in my empty gallery for a while?

Thanks for asking us about this!

Seeing as the only identifying Sonic thing is the Chaos Emerald (and even that's not entirely clear), we wouldn't let it in. There isn't anything about it that SCREAMS sonic, if that makes sense.

Can I ask you please why this gorsan.deviantart.com/art/Sona… was denied?I put it into OC Art.

HappyAggro Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014
We have reason to believe that your picture was traced (or at the very least FAR too heavily referenced) from official Sonic Boom art, your gallery also has other questionable examples of that. Deviations get rejected if A) it's not your own art (which it doesn't appear to be, it's just another copy of the Sonic Boom art) and B) if it doesn't follow dA policy, in which case, if it's traced, it counts against you.

If you have pictures that are more evidently your own art, please submit them to the group! :)

warning:
 :iconpaperluigi987: has been stealing art from many other sonic artists.

They claim it's all drawn by them and that anyone who calls them out is a thief themselves.

Ah, he's starting to hide comments. I copied all of the source links I found to a sta.sh post, if he keeps pulling this stuff, just link people to it and request people report him. sta.sh/01ct0g4l4v9d

We definitely won't allow him to post stuff here!
