Submission Guidelines

>THE RULES

THE NAME OF THE GROUP IS COMICS-COLORIST-CLUB!
Please keep all submissions comics related! That would be any comic/manga character, including original comic characters.

If the character/piece is not a well-known character or if the subject is not an obvious comic character, state the character's name and the book it is from--you may help garner interest if you do so AND increase your chances of getting your submission approved.

Do consider working on sequential pages. If you are serious about working as a colorist, you must be able to color sequential work. Sequential work, regardless of subject, (no nudity!) will be quicker to be approved than pinups pages.

1. For each colored submission always note the artist (or artists) that did the pencils and inks. If unsure, please state so and where the lineart was obtained. Please do not include the lineart in your piece, submit the colors only.

2. No offensive submissions (nothing discriminatory, nothing obscene, etc). If you have to question it, then don't submit it.

3. NO PLAGIARISM! If ANY part of a submission appears to be a blatant copy and paste from another artist's work you will be banned from the group. If suspected, there will be a discussion amongst the administrators and you may be notified to give proof of your own work.

4. Using coloring book pages as lineart is acceptable as long as proper credit is given (example: "this is from a disney coloring book")

5. No nasty behavior. Any decision made by the admins is final. Backlash to a decision made by the admins can result in being removed.

6. As the Comics-Colorist-Club we accept examples of coloring - if your submission is something you've drawn AND colored, that would be more of an illustration, and so not right for the group. If you wish to submit your non-colored drawings you may do so to the "Practice Linework" folder.

This group is intended as a "people helping people" group.

If you are submitting color work for critique, you do so with the understanding that people will give you tips that will hopefully help you to become a better artist. You do not have to use the mentioned tips, but you need to willing to accept them as advice from people who want to help you. If you are not willing to accept advice from other people, do not join the group. Negative commenting on other people's work intended as "backlash" to a helpful comment given by another deviant will not be tolerated, and can result in being banned and having your submissions removed.

If you are to comment on someone's work, refrain from negative comments. If you have suggestions that could help the artist (like "you may want to try this color to bring this section out more"), by all means make the suggestion. If you want to mention that something is not working in the piece color-wise, be prepared to give a suggestion as to how the artist may be able to fix it. Remarks such as "I don't like it", "Why did you do that?" or "This sucks" are not helpful to the artist and contribute to a negative environment. Comments like this will be removed, any submissions removed, and you will be banned.

Be watchful of cursing. Again, this is to be a helpful environment, and cursing tends to lead to a hostile situation. Any comments that become hostile due to this will cause the deviants to be banned, have any submissions removed, and removal of comments.


BECOMING A MEMBER

If you would like to be a contributor/donator of lineart, it is preferred that you are a professional in the field--you are more apt to give better feedback than someone who is not. Quality of lineart will be a deciding factor. Please just drop a note about your background in your join request.


To be a normal member as a colorist, just apply as a member, tell us you color and you are in!

To be a normal member and a donator of line art, tell us you are a donator of line art and apply as a member and you are in!

Also if you are a writer who needs colorists, then feel free to join as a member as well.


PROFESSIONAL

If you are a full-time professional colorist, apply as a Professional instead of Member. If you have applied as a member by mistake, let an admin know and we will correct.
If you intend to apply as a Professional please include your experience, the company or companies that you work for, if you do this part time or full time, and what you are willing to contribute to the group in terms of helping other members, tutorials, etc.
If this is not included in the request, the request will be denied.
This position requires you to have your main source of income/main profession is/as a colorist (full-time) and you are working for the larger companies.


THE CATEGORIES

Try to assess yourself best you can about which category to submit to. If one of the admins feels you have put yourself in the wrong category, they have the right to move you. Please do not be offended--this is not a demotion or a promotion system, it is a learning system broken down to show where we all are.

FEATURED
This section is reserved for Admin use only. Any submission to Featured will be denied without notice.
If you have a piece that you are absolutely proud of (or know of a piece by someone piece that just rocks), feel free to suggest that piece to the admins for consideration via a note. You may never know, one of the admins may feel the same and you may get featured!

BEGINNER
Rather obvious--submit to here if you are someone just starting. Also be willing to accept critiques and advice--that is what the club is for, after all!

INTERMEDIATE
You are no longer a beginner, but you just haven't quite gotten to that level of "advanced". You are showing that you have a grasp on various coloring aspects, but you know you still have some learning to do. As with BEGINNER, be willing to accept critiques and advice.

ADVANCED
You have some top-notch work there! Also reserved for pros who want to post work that isn't published work. Critiques and advice are allowed.

SMALL PRESS
Reserved for published work through smaller or lesser known publishers. Not for commissioned work.

PROFESSIONAL
Reserved for published work through the larger companies, i.e. work most easily seen by the masses. Critiques and advice are discouraged--after all, the work is done! Oohs and ahhhs are allowed. ;)
As with Small Press, this is not meant for commissioned work.

CRITIQUE REQUESTED
Stuck on a project and need a fresh set of eyes for suggestions/guidance? Really want to know if that color you picked makes a difference? Submit your piece here so others will know you are looking for direction.
Advance and Pro users--we highly ask of you to occassionally peruse this area and stop to give advice. A simple suggestion or nudge in a general direction is a sure-fire way to help beginning/intermediate users to expand on their work.

LINEART
Lineart made available for practice use by colorists in training. Lineart can only be donated by the original artist(s). Lineart submitted by someone else will be denied or removed.


We do ask that submissions be limited to one piece a day, with a max of five per week. We also ask that your best work be submitted. Please, no side-by-side submissions with uncolored lineart, we want to focus on the final colored product. This group is intended as a showcase and a way of people learning new tricks and techniques. Admins have the right of rejecting submissions from a user over-submits.


Remember, this is a place where we as colorists can share our work and learn from one another.


In short....
Credit the artist who drew what you colored.
No plagiarism.
And be nice.

All submissions are subject to vote by multiple moderators before being accepted into the group gallery. If your image gets declined without an explanation, please feel free to ask us or to request a reason. Some of the admins will leave an explanation, explanations are encouraged - but some admins are too busy to or some forget. So if for some reason your image gets declined and you would like to know why, please feel free to ask and we'll do our best to explain as to why it was voted on the way it was. And as always, we're happy to leave critique and feedback upon request.

Thanks for all the great submissions - we look forward to seeing your new work!

Happy Coloring!

If you have the money for it, HiFi Comics is a great tool. There are also several issues put out by DC on coloring, can be found on Amazon or Ebay.

There are plenty of free tutorials here on deviantART and on the internet. I have a couple in my gallery if you wanna check them out (stephenschaffer.deviantart.com…. I'd exhaust the free stuff first before plunking down $$$ on a book.
