Part One - How to Submit, and what we accept
To submit art to the club, first join, and then click the "contribute art" button on the front page.
It can take up to a day for your picture to be accepted as we have over 18,000 members.
You must add your work to the correct folder! If you don't know which folder to submit to, go down to the descriptions in this blog. If you submit to the wrong folder, you'll get a little message from an admin telling you where you need to re-submit to. It's not a big deal, it'll just take a little longer for your artwork to be accepted if you don't watch where you're submitting to.
Our gallery is currently set to only accept one artwork per member per week. If you draw a lot of Disney artwork, be sure to choose your best of the week! If the group isn't allowing you to submit, that means it hasn't been a week yet since your last submission. The site keeps count to the exact day, exact hour since your last submission.
We accept any skill level! From "Novice" to "Intermediate" to "Expert". We love your works and we want to see/help you grow as an artist! For more information on why we don't practice "quality control", go here
We DO NOT accept fetish pictures - things like bloated up females, bondage, tickling, incest or anything blatantly sexual including excessive cleavage.
This group is for everyone
, so keep your pictures rated G. No nudity, and keep images with blood to a minimum. We're trying to keep our group as kid friendly as possible to keep the spirit of family entertainment.
No original characters. (Unless they're accompanied by canon ones)
No original characters dressed up as Disney characters, either. This is a Disney group, so we want to see artwork that actually features Disney characters.
We do not accept fan "pairings". So things like AladdinxCinderella, HerculesxNaveen are a no-no. We only accept canon pairings. (the only exception being the rule below)
Although we usually don't accept fan pairings, the admins will occasionally make exceptions. The only exceptions being: If the characters never got together with anyone else canonically in the movie/show, then we might accept. Example: Dr. Facilier and your fan character would most likely be okay. Or, something like Hook and Cruella we wouldn't mind.
Canon pairings like AladdinxJasmine, HerculesxMeg are perfectly fine.
We do not accept works made from official images. All the art here has to be made yourself. If you submit anything that's made from official Disney artwork/renders, you should know that you're going against DA's copyright rules
. The admins report copyright infringements to the site, so don't submit them here if you don't want them to be removed.
We do not accept movies from other companies like FOX or Dreamworks.
If you're not sure which movies are Disney, just look at the list
If you want a place to submit Don Bluth movie artwork, go here: bluthclub
If you want a place to submit Studio Ghibli movie artwork, go here: Ghibli-Fan
If you want a place to submit Dreamworks movie artwork to, go here: Dreamworks-Artists
The only Touchstone Pictures (A division of Disney) movie we're allowing at the group is Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
because it's become synonymous with Disney.
We are not accepting Marvel images at this time.
We are not accepting ABC images at this time.
We are not accepting Lucasfilm images at this time.
Some people have been wondering about our rules on Kingdom Hearts. Here it is: Your art MUST have at least one Disney character in the picture. So if you have a solo picture of Sora we won't accept here. If you have a picture of Sora with Mickey, send it in!
Part Two - Which folder to Submit your Work to
Confused by our gallery folders? Well! This is how it works!:
In our gallery, you submit to where your particular fanart belongs. If you've done a fanart for a TV show, you submit to our "TV Shows" folder. If you've done a fanart for a traditionally animated Disney movie, you submit to "animated movies - 2d". Simple as that!
But for those of you who are still confused, here is the rundown of our gallery folders: Magical Artwork
This folder cannot be submitted to by members. This is a folder where only the admins can decide what goes in. If you're lucky, your art might just appear here! We also take suggestions to this folder, so if you see anything exceptional you think we should add, let us know. Don't suggest your own artwork, though. Magical Costume Players
This folder is also off limits to members. Only the admins can decide which costumes are well made enough to get into this folder. If you're lucky, your costume might just appear in this folder! Animated Movies - 2d
A folder for fanart of Disney's traditionally (hand-drawn) animated movies. Examples of fanart that should appear here: The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Pinocchio, Treasure Planet, The Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast
etc. Animated Movies - 3d

If you have a crossover picture, say something that belongs in both "Animated Movies - 2d", AND "Animated Movies - 3d", then simply choose one of the folders and submit it.
Example: You have a picture that has both Ariel and Rapunzel. Simply submit it to "animated movies - 2d", OR "animated movies - 3d", No sweat!
