Also, dear members, please do not hesitate to ask us via group note/ page comment if you have suggestions, ideas or questions. We appreciate your effort to make this group more alive than ever before.
Welcome to OC-pokemon-trainers! This group is all about your OCs! We also affiliate other groups so if you want to affiliate please contact us. In this group, you're welcome to show your OCs off as much as you want, and anyone can join (well, pokemon trainers can. you know what I mean ) All you need to do is follow a few simple rules.
Please read them:
NO SPAM. If you are a part of this group and spam once you get one warning, spam twice. You're out of the club.
Do not steal art. Bases that are credited in your artist comment are acceptable, but you must prove that you have the artist's permission if you are using someone else's lineart, etc.
Please keep artwork appropriate. No content that would rate higher than PG-15 will be accepted.
The Featured folder is for artwork chosen by the mods only. This means we only add things that we find particularly well-executed. If you feel that something of yours should be submitted to the Featured folder, please send us a note about it and we will consider it!
Please RESPECT everyone else's opinions and characters. If you don't like someone's ship or OC, keep it to yourself; not everyone has the same opinion as you, and this group is meant to be fun.
When submitting your artwork, please put them in the right folder. If you cannot find the correct folder feel free to ask which would be the most appropriate.
No gijinkas please! This group's primary focus is on trainers and fakemon, and there are plenty of other places for gijinka artwork.
Only submit your artwork once. If it takes us a little while to approve your art, DO NOT SUBMIT IT AGAIN UNLESS IT EXPIRES. We get a lot of submissions and it can be challenging to sort through them all--especially when there are duplicates.
Members, from now on, please submit only completed works. If you are to submit a WIP (Works-in-progress), please suggest to the "Favourites" section instead.
We only accept artwork that contains original trainers, or fakemon. If your artwork has only pokemon in it, it will not be accepted.
Thank you, and please enjoy your stay!
Folder Submission Guidlines
Featured: You will not be able to submit your artwork into this folder. This folder is for the founder who picks artworks to go into there. Only showcased artworks go here~
Application Sheets and Trainer Cards: Do you have a description of your O.C. trainer in the picture? Those pieces of work will go into this folder~
Original Trainers, Coordinators, Rangers: Artwork of your O.C. preferably by themselves will go into this folder~ (artwork of your O.C. with ONE of their pokemon with them is allowed but any more the deviation must go into the "Trainers with Pokemon Teams" folder)
Original Gym Leaders and Elite Four: Have some gym leaders or elite four characters you've made? Then they go into this folder here~
Original Professors, Villainous Teams, Other: Same idea as the Gym Leaders and Elite Four folder, but this time with professors, villainous, and other types of people you've created. Those artworks go into here~
Trainers with Pokemon Teams: If you have artworks of your trainer with their team, whether be in a group or one or two, then those artworks go into this folder~
Fakemon: Have some Pokemon that isn't canon and of your own original design? Then those creative critters go into this folder~
One-Shot Comics: Just as the folder says, a single preferably one page comic (including strips, 1-panel comics, or any comics that does not continue on to the next page) that you've created in relation with your O.C. and/or the theme of this group~
Multi-Page Comics: It's kinda like the idea of manga pages. Your nuzlelocke stories and various other Pokemon drawn stories will go into this folder~
Literature: All written out work will be assorted into this folder~
Illustrated Stories: A combination of written and drawn work will go into here. An example would be if you have a drawn scene above and there's a played out written description of how the scene went of it below~
*Please do note that it has to be an illustration accompanying the text-- think a "picture book".
OC and OC Interaction: If you have some OC characters, whether be trainer, Pokemon, etc, interacting (i.e. talking, playing, eating together, cuddling etc) with other peoples OCs then those artworks go into here~
OC and Canon Interaction: If you have an OC character interacting (i.e. talking, playing, eating together, cuddling etc) with already established characters from Pokemon world (whether be anime, games etc.) then those artworks go into here~
Groups: Have more than one OC (whether be trainer, gym leader, friends, etc) in the artwork? Then those pieces go into this folder~
Memes: If you've done some memes with your OC then those pieces of artwork go here~
Pokemon Battles/Versus Screens: If you've drawn your OC in one of those intense Pokemon battles then those artworks go into here~
