:bulletred: Due to the lack of active admins, we are no longer able to provide critique or answer questions about why a submission was declined.
If your submission was declined, it is because of the following reasons:

1. No character information.
2. Wrong folder.
3. Not an original character.
4. If you were declined and it is not for one of the reasons listed above, then it is because of art quality. You can request critique through your correspondence message

READ before you click that "JOIN OUR GROUP" button

:target: Read the whole post of rules or your join application will be declined!

We will know if you did not read all of the rules and we will decline your application.

For all our guests, we highly encourage that you read the following passage before you even think about clicking the "join our group" button.
It will save everyone a lot of trouble.

Trust me.


Welcome to :iconoriginality-club:!

This club features collections of our best art and our favorite original characters so they may be seen and loved by everyone and recognized for the spectacular characters that they are!

:star:Only 2 submissions / month at maximum please!!

:star:Submission requirements include:

:bulletgreen: Art of Intermediate to Professional level.
:bulletgreen: Finished pieces except Sketches. Our sketch folder contains concept ideas of OCs which does not mean unfinished works. Concepts can be ideas you may rework later or just character sketches and studies.
:bulletgreen: Good use of Color. (For all colored submissions.)
:bulletgreen: Good use of Anatomy.
:bulletgreen: Good use of Perspective.
:bulletgreen: Pencil art must be of a Refined quality.
:bulletgreen: Fandom ocs: Own characters who belong to the artist but they live in a well known universe what was created by someone else. For example: A pokemon trainer who has never showed up in the series.
:bulletgreen: Fandom ocs can be with creatures of a universe but no main characters of a series. For example: A Pokemon trainer with Pikachu? Acceptable.
:bulletgreen: All submissions must be submitted to the appropriate folders!! If you submitted it to the wrong folder,you have to wait for another week to be able to submit again.
:bulletgreen: It can be a commissioned work of your character, i.e. someone else drew it but it is of your character. The same is true for a commissioner who drew the OC of someone else as long as the following rule is met!
:bulletgreen: All submissions must include a 2-3 sentence description about the personality of one or two of the specific characters in the artist's comments (description), or a link to a bio. If you don't want to spoil your character then write basic facts as if it were a trailer. You can write about the feelings of the character or mention the world they live in or some little hint of their skills... etc
The information must be in English.
(Not all of it! Just some sentences)
For example: Another self has formed in him and the new one can get over mental and physical pains and appears when his mind is unable to deal with a stressful confrontation.
I wanted to symbolize it with red eyes and an evil grin but truly he has blank eyes when he changes personalities. He doesn't show this grin usually but has a poker-face.
:bulletgreen: Each submission must show a CLEAR and solid picture of the OC in question, any drawing that focuses on anything else, drawing your eye away from the character, will be forced to be declined, or scrutinized carefully.

:star:Submissions may NOT include:

:bulletred: Photomanipulation
:bulletred: Photo. Textures are allowed if it doesn't cause disharmony.
:bulletred: Mix photo and art
:bulletred: Images without focus on the oc
:bulletred: Body parts of the oc: only a certain body part of the character; we need minimum a head seen in the image
:bulletred: Cosplay Costumes
:bulletred: Over-Exaggerated Anatomy
:bulletred: Guro (pictures showing gore or exposed internal anatomy)
:bulletred: Pictures of currently copyrighted characters or commercial characters from a current series.
:bulletred: Fandoms. It means well known characters who originally belong to the author who created them but these characters were recreated by fans. For example: Naruto or Bleach.
:bulletred: Fandom ocs shouldn't be with fandoms. Fandom ocs applies to creatures of a created universe but no main characters from the series. For example: Team Rocket and my pokemon trainer with Pikachu? Unacceptable.
:bulletred: If your artwork was declined, please don't send it again and again without correct the mistake. It's like spam and you'll be banned.
:bulletred: We will make a black list of members who has three or more images of theirs "storaged." For now these people will get a warning and if their name shows up once again with "storaged" works they will be kicked from the group.
:bulletred: Any work copied or traced and claimed as original. We find this entirely Unacceptable!

If Your Submission Is Declined:
:bulletblue:Please review the Submission Requirements
:bulletblue:If you have further questions, please send an inquiry to us through your Correspondence Message. That is also one of the main reasons why you must not delete the Correspondence Message.
:bulletblue:All inquiries should include a link to the submission in question so we may review it properly.
:bulletblue:All inquiries will be answered by critique. We will do this as professionally as possible, citing the requirement we feel the piece did not meet.

:star: Please remember that we reserve the right to decline any work that is submitted into our gallery that does not follow the rules, or it does not fit the standards that are put in place. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there are so many wonderful and talented artists that we have to pick and choose carefully and sometimes scrutinize every drawing carefully. If you wish for a critique as to why your drawing was not accepted, feel free to ask and we shall get back to you as soon as we can.

:star: Please do not delete the Correspondence Message from your messages until the submission has been approved and all questions answered. We use this to ask questions if needed, and it is easier for you to ask us questions!! If you would like to join our group, you must write in your application our quote: "we are original" and it will be accepted. You will become a member of our group! This proves to us that you read our rules and you are aware of them. In other cases the application will be declined.

:star: Removal of a previously accepted piece for later resubmission with result in the artist being banned from Originality-Club! We will not accept the same piece twice!

:star: Please show us the kind of good manners and respect you would ask from us. If you must leave the club, we are sad to see you go, but an angry departing message is not appropriate.




I would like to tell you some oc projects:

I am working on a fantasy comic book called “World of Esras”. It tells the story of a lonely half-elf warrior who, although he has found a place in life, is still haunted by nightmares of his past. The project is funded! I'm really thankful! You can support this project for 9 days!

Now with video trailer:…

Comic book is available - 2 days only by Azzedar-san

Even if you're unable to contribute to the goal, you can still help!
Please share this project on social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr) and/or artists sites (e.g. Deviantart, Pixiv). Every little bit to get the word out counts.

Thank you!


One of our dear members is taking cooperative program.

I’d like to invite OC authors to take part in fifth, summer round of OC-training. It is a program of twelve tasks that help to develop an OC and improve drawing skills. Tasks make participants leave comfort zone, push imagination and make drawings that other way probably never come to life. OC-training is also small, invaluable community within which we encourage and advice each other to really do our best. Full agenda for summer 2016 round has been already available in OC-training "Featured" folder. Enrolls are on.

Hello! I just wanted to briefly tell you all about my new group :iconzing-creation: (Zing-Creation). Our group is all about bringing together art that is unique and has a bit of something extra to it. We accept most traditional and digital artwork, as well as literature. We also try our best to build a sense of community within our group and our affiliates. We would love to have you join us! :D
