GUIDELINES

Welcome to Borderlands-Fans, your home for fanart of the Gearbox Software / 2K games Borderlands and Borderlands 2 as well as all associated media. We only ask that your art is original and keeps the spirit of the game and its characters.

--
RULES
--

We do not accept:

- Traced art. This includes art traced from screenshots, official art, promo images, or someone else’s fanart.

- Usage/resubmissions of official/promotional art unless significantly edited for a wallpaper or other graphic.

- Art that copies/references official Gearbox screenshots/promo material (for example, we won't accept a drawing of Maya copied exactly from official promo material.)

- Screenshot redraws, unless done with significant effort involved.

- Works in Progress UNLESS you submit one and it is the latest version. Once you submit a finalized version we will remove all WIPs from the group to cut down on clutter.

- Bases, or artwork using them.

- Art violating the dA guidelines, including sexual depictions of minors or those who appear to be minors. This also includes images that depict obvious/clear sexual intercourse. We will also decline implied intercourse to remain within dA's rules.

- Fetish-based art/pieces/3D works.

- "Inspired by" pieces. Unless your image is obviously Borderlands-related in some way, please do not submit it. We do not accept general "wasteland" style drawings, nor do we accept "Borderlands-y" original characters.

- Political propaganda. Even if you use a Borderlands character to convey your message, the fact remains that it is not a piece celebrating Borderlands or its characters. I'm sure there are plenty of political groups that fall in line with the message being conveyed that would be happy to accept your submission.

- Game screenshots, unless they are meant to be high-res references - if so, please contact an admin and we will open the folder for you.

--
SUBMISSIONS
--

Please make sure you submit to the right category when adding your work.

When submitting:

- Go to the folder you want to add art to
- Click on the '+' on the upper right corner of that folder
- Submit!

Important notes:

- When you submit a piece, PLEASE make sure that you have selected the proper folder in the drop-down menu at the top of the submission widget. DeviantArt has an issue with "resetting" the folder even though you have clicked the + button on the correct folder - it will automatically default to the first listed folder, which is Brick in our case. Please double-check your folder before you click the button!

- Our character folders are for traditional and digital art only. If the piece is in another medium, it will go into the folder for that medium specifically.

FOR EXAMPLE:

-A digital painting of Moxxi would go into the Moxxi folder.
-A photo of a Moxxi cosplay would go into the Cosplay folder.
-A Garrys Mod posing of Moxxi would go into the 3D Works folder.
-A clay sculpture of Moxxi would go into the Crafts folder.
-And so on and so forth.

- The Multiple Characters folder is for images that contain 2 or more canon characters that already have their own folders. For example, an image of Tannis and Krieg will go into Multiple Characters. An image of Tannis and Baron Flynt will go into the Patricia Tannis folder because Baron Flynt does not have his own folder. However, an image of 2 original characters will still go into the Original Characters folder. An image of a canon character with an original character will still go into Multiple Characters.

- Images of cosplay props are to go into the Crafts folder, NOT the Cosplay folder. The Cosplay folder is for full/WIP costumes only.

- Images of non-Borderlands characters (or non-canon characters) dressed up as Borderlands characters do not go into the Cosplay folder. They are welcome in the Miscellaneous folder.

- Images with nudity, implied nudity, or sexual themes that don't violate DA's or our rules should be submitted to the NSFW folder. Not sure if your piece is NSFW? Ask yourself if your piece would be something you'd feel comfortable looking at if a boss, teacher, or parent was standing over your shoulder. If the answer is no, submit it to NSFW.
I've noticed over the last few weeks that there are some recurring themes amongst the deviations I've been forced to decline, so I thought I'd stress a few things for you guys so you don't have to go through the hassle of having an image declined and having to resubmit it!

As would be expected, when in doubt, read the rules. Most of the mistakes I've seen lately are easily remedied by checking out our rules section. It's been cleaned up a bit over the past few weeks, so I definitely recommend giving it another look if you haven't checked lately!

The biggest offender so far seems to be incorrect folder submissions. When you submit a piece, please please PLEASE make sure that you have selected the proper folder in the drop-down menu at the top of the submission widget. I've noticed that DeviantArt has an issue with "resetting" the folder even though you have clicked the + button on the correct folder - it will automatically default to the first listed folder, which is Brick in our case. I've had to decline several submissions that were accidentally submitted to the Brick folder, so please double check your folder before you click the button!

In that same vein, I've noticed that our character folders can be a bit confusing. I have had to decline a handful of pieces that were submitted to character folders even though they were of the character in question - this is because our character folders are for traditional and digital art only. If the piece is in another medium, it will go into the folder for that medium specifically.

FOR EXAMPLE:

-A digital painting of Moxxi would go into the Moxxi folder.
-A photo of a Moxxi cosplay would go into the Cosplay folder.
-A Garrys Mod posing of Moxxi would go into the 3D Works folder.
-A clay sculpture of Moxxi would go into the Crafts folder.
-And so on and so forth.

A few other things to keep in mind about particular folders:

-We now have an NSFW folder. It's a bit strict - all images that contain any form of sexualization, fetishization (within DA's rules,) or nudity (full or implied) are to go into this folder from now on. If you're not sure, ask yourself one question - "Would I be comfortable looking at this image with my boss/parent/grandmother looking over my shoulder?" If the answer is a No (or even an "I'm not sure",) play it safe and put it in NSFW.
-The Multiple Characters folder is for images that contain 2 or more canon characters that already have their own folders. For example, an image of Tannis and Krieg will go into Multiple Characters. An image of Tannis and Baron Flynt will go into the Patricia Tannis folder because Baron Flynt does not have his own folder. However, an image of 2 original characters will still go into the Original Characters folder.
-Images of cosplay props are to go into the Crafts folder, NOT the Cosplay folder. The Cosplay folder is for full cosplays only.
-Images of non-Borderlands characters (or non-canon characters) dressed up as Borderlands characters do not go into the Cosplay folder. They are welcome in the Original Characters folder or the Miscellaneous folder - your choice.

Those aside, we are now enforcing a couple of quality control-based rules, so please keep these in mind when submitting images:

-We no longer allow images that have clearly been copied from official images and promo art. This means that if you took one of the promo images of Salvador from the Borderlands website and copied it in pencil, we will not accept it into our group. All images that were discovered to be copies have been removed from our group, and will no longer be allowed.
-We will only accept a Work In Progress (WIP) if it is the latest available version of an image. Please do not submit the pencil sketch, inks, and colored version of the same picture all at once - we will decline the sketch and linework and allow the colored version only because it is the final version. If you submit a WIP and later submit a finished piece (or a WIP that is at a later stage) we will accept the new version but will remove the previous WIP from the group. All WIP pieces that had later versions have been removed from our group to reduce clutter.

All of our other rules, of course, remain the same. We don't accept traces, doll bases, or resubmitted official art (unless edited for a Wallpaper, Stamp, et cetera.)

If you have any questions about any of the above, don't hesitate to comment on this journal entry and ask. And if you see anything in the gallery that violates any of our (or DA's) rules, PLEASE let us know. We do our best to keep things nice and clean, but we are human and therefore some things can slip past us.

Thank you for your attention, and have a pleasant morning/afternoon/evening!

Hi, I've recently made a few designs based on the Borderlands weapon companies and plan on doing at least one design for each of the ones I haven't gotten too yet. Which folder should I submit them too?

If the designs are original and not just vectors or traces, you can submit them to our Miscellaneous folder.

Go to the folder for the piece you want to submit, click the + button and select the piece from your gallery.

Which folder are you trying to submit to? I can double-check the settings - sometimes I create new folders and forget to update the settings to allow submissions. I'm pretty sure I updated them all not too long ago but I might have missed one.
