Here is a general overview of what this group is all about. Failure to read these rules will result in your submission being declined. So please take a few minutes to read up and make sure you're submitting everything in the right place. Go here for a list of folder summaries

Doctor-Who-Art is a place to display all of your Doctor Who related artwork including pieces from spin-offs such as Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Big Finish Audios, etc. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in by pressing Join the Group on the main page.

:bulletred:Submissions are limited to one per member every week. (Please do not submit to more than one folder to get around this)

:bulletred:If you have any questions or comments about something you've submitted or you are unclear about the rules. Please DO NOT post on the front wall, send us a note instead.

:bulletred:When submitting to the gallery please submit your own art that is finished, polished, and ready to be featured in the group.

We will NOT accept submissions with the following:
:bulletblack:Promo
:bulletblack:Sketches
:bulletblack:Doodles
:bulletblack:WIP's
:bulletblack:Practice pieces
:bulletblack:Speed Paintings
:bulletblack: Any kind of submissions with comments regarding the quality of the work negatively in the artist comments section as we do pre-screen everything that comes in.

We're looking to feature work that you're proud of and that likewise we'll be happy to have in our ranks.

:bulletred:We also will not accept:
:bulletblack:Fanfiction
:bulletblack:Poorly photographed pieces
:bulletblack:Photomanipulations
(anything created using copyrighted material which is also against dA policy)
:bulletblack:Portraits of the actors outside of their character (as there are other groups on dA better suited for it.)
:bulletblack:Artwork created using bases
:bulletblack:Submissions that ask for people to buy products using copyrighted material on other websites

:bulletred:Please do not submit work that could be considered hateful or sexually suggestive (We are defining "sexually suggestive" as being anything that may suggest that a sexual act has, is about to, or is happening). We're trying to keep this group friendly for all ages as this is a family show.

:bulletred:Members must also refrain from submitting work based on newly aired episodes until at least 3-4 days after the original broadcast date so as to let others have a chance to catch up with the new episodes and not have to worry about having something spoiled when they look in their inboxes.

Um...terribly sorry, but does Big Finish Cover Art fall into the category of Photo manipulations?

Hi there!
Unfortunately this would be classified as a photomanipulation and not acceptable per the guidelines. I hope this helps :)

Hello there.
I see you don't accept fan fiction.
I did not see, however, any mention on fan created characters and the like.
Are these allowed?

We have guidelines against posting pieces from new episodes immediately after they air.

I am so sorry.  That was a piece I got from a BBC video preview clip last week, and I haven't even seen the episode yet.  But I see how it would fall into the spoilers section.  Terribly sorry for the inconvenience.

Does this group accept slash? I generally don't watch/join groups that allow slash, so I was just wondering as I group-browse. I'm new to the Doctor Who fandom, trying to find a good place to get fanart. :)

It's just that I don't finish my paintings, and I would count that as a WIP right? But that is how I paint, I use an unpolished style. So I can't post.

I am not entirely sure what constitues a "practice piece" according to these rules, but I suppose that's why my last submission was declined? I consider practically all of my art practice, so that would make it rather hard for me to get anything accepted, lol. Or is there a rule against un-coloured lineart that isn't stated here (if so, then I think it should be)?
Reply
:iconmarker-mistress:
Marker-Mistress Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
The rule refers to deviants that label pieces as something they did to practice, as in art that for the most part will not be finished.

When you say you won't take 'any kind of submissions with comments regarding the quality of the work negatively in the artist comments sections' does that mean that if I have a piece that I say in the description "I'm not sure I like how this picture turned out" or something like that, you won't take it?
Reply
:iconmarker-mistress:
Marker-Mistress Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
An example would be as if you said, "I know it looks like crap" etc. Anything that would make us assume you didn't enjoy the final result of your work. The reason behind that is that we don't feel obligated to feature work that the artist isn't proud of creating.

That makes sense. I tend to be my own worst critic and often say things like "I'm not so sure about how ______ part turned out and I'm not happy with _____ but I like ______ and _____" So I was wondering if you'd take art like that or not.

what do you mean by "artwork created by using bases"?
Reply
:iconhannapaulson:
HannaPaulson Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012
A lot of people make 'bases' of a plain human shape or something of the sort so other people just have to draw on the clothing, things like that. It's sort of like a Flash dress up game. :shrug:

What, exactly, is a "speed painting"?
Reply
:iconginganinja32:
GingaNinja32 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013  Student General Artist

A speed painting is when an artist films a picture they are creating so it captures the whole process of sketching to the finished outcome. Then, the film is put into a movie editor and sped up to make the artist look like they are drawing, painting, etc. really fast, hence the name "speed" painting.

 

Hope that helped a little...
