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 (fancy) Spreadsheet.
and so on
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.
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 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 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.
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.
