I hope everyone is having a good new year. In light of submissions of comics and them not making it to the proper folders, I've created to new folders specifically for comics. The Fan Comic
Folder and the Original Comic
Folder. These folder's also have guidelines as well.
Fan Comic Folder
This is for comics that are based in the same world as a franchised (meaning under the major publishers not webcomics or anything like that) manga/anime/game/etc.
Original Comic Folder
Your own comic or a comic you've done as a fan of another artist's work that isn't franchised. You are required to link to the full comic work in your artist's comments if you want to submit to this folder. Why? Because it helps your comic get more views and allows a reader to easily find if they find your story interesting and want to continue. So make sure to link to previous or later pages of your comic or if you have a web comic, go ahead and link to the full comic. If you don't link to the full thing it will be denied. This doesn't apply to one page comics.
That being said, make sure that your comic's are still properly categorized because they will be denied for that as well. And same thing as always, the work has to be finished. For comics this means screentoned/colored. No sketches, line art, rough drafts, WIPs, thumbs, etc. will be allowed.
Still getting denied?
There's a number of reasons why we won't let your art into our folders. Please check the rules to see what we allow. We don't take sketches (unless they are sent to the misc. folder), we don't take line art, we need Fan Art properly categorized (it has to be a franchised manga/game/anime/etc. for us to consider it). If it doesn't look like manga/anime, we won't take it either. makaXD
