To join UnmotivatedLosers, please send a note with "Loomis" in the message box (if you don't go on dA regularly please include an email address too). When we are ready to accept new members a group invitation and an email(if you provided one) will be sent your way! We also ask that you have an avatar for your DeviantArt account. If you do not accept the invitation within 48 hrs, then it will be revoked. When you join you have till the end of the week to submit something
There are three ranked tiers, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Each member will start in Bronze tier and will be moved from there depending on their score at the end of the 3 weeks.
Gold is an average of 5 points.
Silver is an average of 3-4 points.
Bronze is an average of 1-2 points.
Members can earn up to 5 points a week. The average point score over 3 weeks is used to determine where you will be moved in the tiers.
Types of submissions have different point values.
Sketches(at least ~1hr of work, or a compilation of quicker pieces) are 1 point.
Finished works(3hrs+) are 2 points.
Detailed Studies(3hrs+) are 2 points.
Collaborations or group challenges are 3 points.
Each week, the admins will choose a small number of exceptional submissions These chosen submissions will be placed in the featured folder and they will also be put in that week's journal. Please aim for your work to be in this folder!
Any member who fails to earn at least 1 point in a week is kicked from the group. Kicked members can rejoin the group.
If you are unable to post in a week for personal reasons (illness, moving, exams, etc) then please send a note about your circumstances with “(your username) excuse” in the title. The excuse system is now more strict, so please have a real reason.
The deadline for any submission is the start of Monday. Any submissions after this time will be accepted at the beginning of the next week. The week begins on Monday and ends at the deadline.
Types of submissions
Sketch submissions can not be something that you made in 10 mins. Please put some effort into your submissions. For scanned works, please include a few pages of your sketches per submission. If your submission is lacking, it will be declined and you will be told why. Please remember there is no minimum skill level for this group, so that has nothing to do with the accepting or declining of submissions.
Finished works from reference are finished studies of any kind. This includes pencil renders, color studies, composition studies, etc.
Finished works from imagination are any works made mostly from imagination, such as color paintings, pencil renders, black and white paintings, etc.
The collaboration and group challenge system is still being worked on, so this folder should be empty for now.
Please submit your work to the folder you think it should be. If it is submit to the wrong folder, it will be moved to the correct one and you will be notified of the move.
If you have any further questions, please ask in the comments.
