We've changed the system by bringing an RPG element to it.
Now you're going to get XP for everything, there's going to be quests and levelling up.


There's no limit to submissions per week, knock yourself out.

Types of submissions have different point values.
Sketches(at least ~1hr of work, or a compilation of quicker pieces) are 20 experience points.
Detailed Studies(3hrs+) are 50xp.
Finished works(3hrs+) are 100xp.
Quests have individual values. List of Available Quests


You can check your level, experience and accepted submissions from this Spreadsheet.

Levels Table:
LVL1 100
LVL2 210
LVL3 330
LVL4 460
LVL5 600
LVL6 750
LVL7 910
LVL8 1080
LVL9 1260
LVL10 1450
and so on


Rankings
There are ranked tiers. Each member will start in Wood tier and will be moved from there depending on their score at the end of each week.

Diamond is lvl 41 - 45.
Platinum is lvl 36 - 40.
Gold is lvl 31 - 35.
Silver is lvl 26 - 30.
Bronze is is lvl 21 - 25.
Steel is lvl 16 - 20.
Iron is  lvl 11 - 15.
Stone is  lvl 6 - 10.
Wood is  lvl 1 - 5.

Weekly Featured
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!

Rules
Any member who fails to earn at least 1 point in a week is kicked from the group and put into cemetery. Kicked members can rejoin the group, but will lose 1lvl worth of xp.
If you are unable to post in a week for personal reasons (illness, moving, exams, etc) then please send :iconmgcusr: 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 end of Sunday. 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.

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.

What time zone are you using for the Sunday cut off?
It is 8:51 PM as far as PST is concerned, so I might fail to meet the deadline if its EST/UTC.

Am I allowed to submit stuff that is already in my gallery? e.g. If I don`t have the time in a week and then just submit sth. I`ve done in the past, but not yet submitted to this group?

Kick is not permanent. Many users rejoin multiple times.

I love the idea of this! I'd join but I'd get the boot in under a month. Between working 50 hours a week, being a father and being incomprehensibly lazy I can't keep up a good art schedule. I should start a personal reward system though...accumulate points by making art and music and redeem them for little treats down the road. Like I have to put serious effort into and finish a piece to get Taco Bell. Yeah...

Thanks for the idea.

Mix it up with a bit of planning and you're good to go. I recently read ZTD - Zen To Done and it's a very nice system. Give it a try, it might help. :)

Any chance of getting a folder for "Works from Life" or does this count as from reference?

It's changed to 'finished studies' so that. We want to keep as few folders as possible.

I don't want to be pedantic, but a finished painting from life is not always a study. It's its own complete work e.g. landscapes, still life, figure painting..... People make their living off of stuff like this.

IHMO the most motivating thing is feedback ;P It is very hard to get reasonable crits on dev somewhere else ;) Honestly, it is more important for me than some ponits ;P Anyway, what about WIP, personal tutotorials and similar stuff? Does It counts or not? Where to submit. It is allowed to add some stuff like this admaioremdeiglori.deviantart.c… or admaioremdeiglori.deviantart.c… as seperate work if u add some parts of it before. I don't care about points, I can get even zero but sometimes it is good to show causes why u are doing sth and then get intresting feedback.
P.S: Sorry for bad grammar.

WIPs go to sketches and get 1 point. tutorials go to 'special' and (don't know how many points they should get).

The 'compilation' of works should get 0 points if you have already uploaded seperate files(each finished study 2 points)

also, this is nice, more competitive, with a goal too

do you want us to list whether it's sketches or completed work etc? or will you check on that yourself?

Are gestures still accepted as sketches? I'm not talking a single gesture but, like, a gesture drawing session. I feel those should count. They may not take long, but there's definitely value in them.

Yeah sure, just include a few pages of them in one submission.

This is actually motivating. Ranking system seems to be much better than team system at first glance, let's hope it remains that way because it sounds awesome.
