Rules, Folders and Such


1. No rudeness. If you are rude here, you will be withdrawn from the group immediately.

2. No mane cast pictures here. If it's a mane character with an original pony, then that's fine. But if it's only a mane character, you will be asked to withdraw it from the group.

3. Crossover ponies do indeed count as original ponies, since you made them up.

4. If you have a background character that you've taken under your wing, they can count as OCs, too.

5. If I think you're responsible enough to be a co-founder or contributor, I will ask you if you'd like to be one. If you ask me, then chances are, you will not be chosen.


Club Mascot
--This is where fanart and drawings of the group's mascot goes!

Other Canon Species

-- Images drawn with another person, or an image open for people to insert their own character, regardless of species.

Original Species
-- Any race of pony, or otherwise, that you created yourself, or which is otherwise not canon!

Multiple Species
--If there is more than one character present that vary in species, they go here! If your character is a mix of breeds, they will go it original species. The only exception for this is adoptables, which have their own folders.

OCs with Canon Characters
-- Your OC with any of the characters from the show!

Animations and Games
-- Anything moving or interactable, /including/ icons!

-- Anything sexual /or/ excessively gorey!

Comics and Memes
-- Things with multiple drawn frames ( non-animated ) or filled out memes of your characters. For it to be considered a comic, it MUST have multiple frames drawn on it! If you are submitting a comic with only one frame, please submit it into the respective Pony OC folder!

-- Journals advertising your commissions are allowed here!

-- Crafts, anything crafty~! This includes things such as sculpting, buttons, t-shirts, etc!

Adoptables and Customs
-- Adoptable sheets, customs designed for other people; it is pretty simple!

OC Crossovers
-- Images with ponies in, or from, another universe! This includes ponification of already made characters!

Reference Sheets
-- Everything depicting what others would need to know if they decided to draw your OC! If the image has a color palette and/or cutie mark, or information about the character on the image, it is considered a reference sheet.

Cutie Marks
-- Vectors of nothing but the cutie mark! If there is a pony involved anywhere in the picture at all, it does not go here!

-- WIPs, doodles, or sketches! As long as the image isn't too light, it's allowed!

Random Misc
-- WIPs, doodles, and anything involving non-pony universes, such as incorporating other games, movies, or shows into your art, regardless if there are pony OCs in the picture!

Contest Entries
-- Entries for OFFICIAL GROUP CONTESTS ONLY! Personal contest entries go in their original folders

-- Fanfictions, backstories, and any other written works. The main character must be an OC, however.

"Where does this go?"
-- Not sure where something belongs? This folder is an automatically-accepted sorting folder, where we will place them in the right folder for you!

Any Questions?

I hope this clears some stuff up. If you have any questions, message the group or any of its administrators! We are always happy to help.

I really dislike bringing bad news to other people's groups, but this member of yours :iconscienceisanart: has submited to you material actually stolen from my group here: :icondesktop-pony-team:
This is the second time we catch her lying and agressively misquoting things to pass our work as her original one and as you may understand, her behavior is something we will simply not tolerate anymore.
We are currently in the process of reporting her account for continued abuses, so it's fair that you would be informed about what's going on. 
MidnightFreakShow Apr 8, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I'm sorry this is happening. Would you be able to link us to the stolen art's location in our group so we can make sure it gets removed from our group folders? 

We'll remove her from the group, report her, and block her account.
Anonycat Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist…

Also, the "friend" she claims solved everything for her is probably her own dummy account, as the first time we caught her, a troll came out from nowhere to hysterically insult the group and defend her, demanding everyone to do as he/she demanded and claiming that everyone already had lost the argument and her friend had won. (It didn't work ahd she was supposed to take down the stuff. Turns out she just waited until we looked to the other side before restarting all over again.)

She still believes that grabbing and minor modifying someone else's work retroactively makes it her own work. In fact, that was one of her excuses the first time we caught her and she was already supossed to have learned that things do not work that way.
MidnightFreakShow Apr 8, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Alright. Thank you for telling us about this and sorry it's happening. We'll ban her and block her. I've reported her.
Anonycat Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Evidence that this wasn't the first time she was up to no good:…

Notice the self servicing troll hijacking the conversation and deciding things on it's own despite having absolutely nothing to do with the creators.
hi- MLP fans.
I'm an digital artis as I now this year try to make money/points.
and my best skills are concept art- character design, but those characters I'm working on
is only Transformers and I want to get wider.
I want to ge new skills!

so I wonder what is the demand for My Little Pony characters?
MidnightFreakShow Apr 8, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Demand is fairly high right now if you're in the right place. Example, I made 700pts in a single day by offering cheap pony commissions. I offered to do requests once and I got a flood into my inbox. I had to start turning people down. So, this is good idea for expanding. It can prove very productive.
yeah, I've seen alot of MLP and I thought it would be an nice turn from Transformers to ponies. XD

Ah but I don't really have any friends with MLP intrest so I'm just wondering how I even get started... :/
I thought about to do a few characters and see if I can sell them chea-and get views and then alittle known by the people around... or something.
MidnightFreakShow Apr 8, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Honestly, to get my popularity up, I did a set of 20 requests, then once people were interested, starting charging for commissions. It was a smooth, easy transition. I still fill all of my commission slots every time I open them.

I really want to join the contest that's going on, but for the art portion I was wondering if traditional art is accepted. Or humanized art. I can't do digital art very well, so I stick with a pencil and paper for the most part ; )
