Deviants

Welcome!

Welcome to ShingekiNoKyojin Fans!
We are the 2nd SnK group to exist here on DA. The group was created 2 years ago for me to collect fanart for my favorite obscure manga, how things have changed since the anime came out!

Please be aware that the only folder that doesn't contain at least a few manga spoilers is the "Featured" folder, so if you are an anime-only fan and want to stay pure, you should be careful when checking out other art.


***SINCE THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME CONFUSION, HERE IS AN FAQ OF SORTS. HOWEVER PLEASE ALSO READ THE GROUP RULES**

-NOTHING but COSPLAY PHOTOS goes in the cosplay folder of the gallery Please do not submit artwork to the cosplay folder!

-If your artwork includes text, it goes in the comics folder, as comics can be just one panel. ESPECIALLY if it's a humorous picture that someone would have to read the text to get the joke.

-If the work is not finished or polished, or if it's a sketchdump, or you litterally called it a sketch in it's description, it goes in the "Sketches and WIP" folder. I will just tell you to put it there anyway so you might as well do it from the start.

-REDRAWS ARE NOT ALLOWED. We will absolutely not accept redraws of screen caps or of other people's fanart.

-Characters who were at one time members of the 104 trainee squad go in THAT folder, NOT the "other characters" folder. That folder is for people like Nile or Eren's dad, who didn't ever belong to any particular group.

-Please scroll down a bit to check out the group's rules, and also a more in depth description of what goes in each folder. Please do not submit art before doing BOTH of those things, or you may be asked to resubmit your artwork.



GROUP RULES:

Joining the Group
If you'd like to join the group please feel free to do so! Anyone can join, there are no requirements at all for either becoming or staying a member. Although we'd love to see your fan creations, if you just want to lurk that's fine too. All I ask is that you not be a jerk and post manga spoilers all over the place (I'll just delete them anyway) or harass other members.


Submitting Art to the Group

RULES FOR SUBMITTING ART<<<THIS TEXT IS BLUE BECAUSE IT IS A LINK YOU CAN CLICK ON. PLEASE DO SO TO READ THE RULES.
PLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE ASKING ME WHY WE REJECTED YOUR SUBMISSION


Gallery Folders

***YOUR SUBMISSION WILL BE REJECTED AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESUBMIT IF YOU PUT YOUR WORK IN THE WRONG FOLDER. PLEASE READ THE FOLDER DESCRIPTIONS BEFORE SUBMITTING ARTWORK.**

The Group Gallery is divided into several folders. You can submit to any of them except the "Featured" Folder: We update this folder with art from other sections that we deem to be of particularly high quality, provided it does not contain any obvious manga spoilers.

More information on the various folders and what they contain<<THIS BLUE TEXT IS ALSO A LINK YOU CAN CLICK ON TO READ MORE. PLEASE DO SO!



Well that's about it. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask, otherwise have fun!
A lot of the submissions to this group that we reject are images copied or heavily referenced from screen shots, and sometimes fanart.  

I don't think I should have to even discus why it's not right to copy someone else's fanart and post it.   And if your excuse is "well I used it as reference, it's not like I just traced it" If the composition and colors are the same, it doesn't matter, it's still a copy.

On the subject of screen caps and redrawing them, this is how I, personally, feel:

1. I know that many people do use screen caps as a reference for drawings of anime characters, as a way to practice drawing anime style images.  I know that some people are not yet at a level where they can create their own compositions and can only copy exactly from what they are looking at.

It's fine to do this to practice anime characters when you're just learning to draw, and it's certainly not against DA's rules.  But as I said, it's something you do when you're just learning to draw.   As such I don't feel that these sorts of works are something to be showcased in our group gallery.  

2. Redraws of screen caps that are NOT just sketching practice, are a bit weirder and I don't really understand why people make them in the first place.   If you want to draw some SNK characters in your own style, then you should already be at an artistic level where you don't need to trace over an image in photoshop.   I appreciate the effort put into any piece where the artist has attempted to create something new far more than even a relatively skilled execution where they obviously just traced over a screen cap.  After all....if I wanted to look at screen shots, I could just do a google search.   I browse for fanart because I want to see a different take on a character than what I got from the source material.    

3. Redraws where you litterally just trace the image, make it a vector version or whatever, in that case you are really just doing image processing and in that case there is not even an attempt at creating your own artwork.   You are in fact just committing art theft.   It would be exactly the same as just downloading and reposting a jpg of a screen shot from the web, there is no functional difference at that point.  If you want to practice vectors, fine, but again, your vector practice is not something that I feel we need to showcase in our gallery.
A few days ago actually.

This chapter actually gave us an incredibly important piece of information, did you catch it?

There should be a join group button at the top. It should have a rectangular-ish icon that two people-like figures on it
