The matron mother has some rules but lucky for you, she's not harsh. If you have any questions or concerns, please Note us. It will be addressed more quickly than if you comment.

:bulletpurple: Gallery submissions are always open, unless otherwise stated.

:bulletpurple: You may submit 2 deviations per week. This includes declined submissions.

:bulletpurple: Please submit your deviation to the correct gallery, otherwise it will be declined and you will have to resubmit.

:bulletpurple: Please try not to submit deviations that are extremely similar to each other. If you have two deviations that are essentially the same picture, please choose one. This is to avoid redundancies and promotes unique work in the gallery. If you have any questions about this when submitting your work, just send a note requesting clarification.

:bulletpurple: All submissions must be related to drow/dark elves in some way. This is not restricted to traditional Dungeons and Dragons; half-drow, drow hybrids, dark elves, dunmer, dokkalfar, moriquendi and individual interpretations of drow are welcome. If it is not readily apparent that your art is drow-related ((ie, a focus on dark elves, dark elven culture, etc)), please make sure there is an explanation in the description or it will be subject to questioning.

:bulletpurple: Mature content is acceptable so long as it does not violate the deviantART Terms of Service. This especially pertains to FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be? There are no exceptions. We cater to a wide demographic so if your submission contains mature content and it is not marked with the applicable filters, it will be declined. It will also be declined if we feel it is in a grey area or crosses the line where FAQ 565 is concerned.

:bulletpurple: You must submit original work. We will not allow screenshots, dolls/avatars from dollmakers such as dreamselfy. tektek, dolldivine, etc. We also do not allow edits, alterations or work that in any way infringes on the copyright of the original artist. This means ...

:bulletpurple: Credit and links to resources used must be provided. If there is something in your image that you didn't create, you must credit it in your deviation's description with a direct link. This includes, but is not limited to, custom brushes, stock photos, pre-made backgrounds, public domain work, etc.

:bulletpurple: Please submit your best work. For example, we will not accept sub-par photos or scans that are blurry, on lined paper or have binder rings showing; we will also not accept work that is very sketchy-looking, unfinished or from your Scrapbook.

:bulletpurple: Lolth-Scourge is a group for artists of all skill levels and media. We welcome everyone from beginners to experts, however please respect the previous rule.

In the case of DAZ Studio renders, as it is an app to do layout (scene design) and not designed for modelling, crediting DAZ Studio (and their content store) for the used content is enough?

Or content from DAZ 3D directly are like "built in" brushes, fonts, etc. where you don't credit? (as I see most DAZ renders don't credit such content on DA)

Or should I name all items, morph packs, etc. used in the image with direct links?

Same is true for Poser, and several other apps.

(Also true for Character Artist from Profantasy, etc)

As I'm unfamiliar with DAZ Studio renders, I would have to say that whatever credit is generally appropriate for those types of DA submissions would be enough. However I've also seen lots of Poser submissions that credit specific brushes, etc. if they got them from an independent creator on DA or otherwise.

So I suppose whatever you deem appropriate and if there's a specific artist you can credit, it'd be in good taste to do so.

Guys at DAZ said, you don't have to and normally don't credit store items you purchased, but you credit certain free custom stuff you can download from various places.

(It is like: You don't credit standard photoshop brushes, commercial plugins, commercial fonts, etc. but you credit custom stuff contributed by other artists)

Considering I am still busy learning how the stuff I bought works, I had no time to look around for good freebies yet :)

Then just credit whatever is appropriate.
question: can we submit stuff that was written for contests or CDW, before the group system kicked off? thanks :)

Of course! C: The group's been given a clean slate, so feel free!

This are great rules I think ^^
Featured is the only folder that is open for submission, btw, just letting you know.
Might wanna change group permissions. If you don't know how to, I do, and I can give you a screenshot tutorial with my own group x3

Did you read the Update journal? C: As I noted in it, I said I would be working on adding the gallery folders soon. I'm going to give people notice. I know how to do it, don't worry. ;) I wanted to upload the submission guidelines first.
Oh somehow I missed the soon part, I only saw the rules about gallery folders XD
