Art & Literature

+ Submit

All art and literature submitted to the group counts for points within the XP System.

The following guidelines apply to all submissions. The XP is added automatically when the submission is accepted!

Additional requirements may be dictated by the event or category (breedings, events, etc).

 

ARTWORK GUIDELINES
  • Must be a reasonably finished piece - colored neatly, not overly sketchy/messy, etc - and must be accurate to the design's color/markings.

  • Must correctly depict Loshenka tails, as it is a core trait of the breed! Click here for a tutorial.

  • Must be original art created for the Loshenka group (no photomanips, linearts, AI, reused art or sketches, pre-existing art of the design, etc).

    • Reused artwork/linearts are accepted only for Registration.

  • Must be of "gallery quality" - chibis and experimental styles are fine, but all art must be consistent with the usual effort represented in your gallery.

  • We do not allow "stat farming" by submitting simple/rushed art to gain mass XP. Art may be declined or corrected for this reason.



LITERATURE GUIDELINES
  • Must be at least 300 words to count for XP. If over 5k, please split into multiple submissions.

  • Must be written in paragraph form (not script), any POV (horse/human/3rd).

  • Must be an original story written for the Loshenka group (no AI, reused or pre-existing literature, etc).

  • To claim XP, character must be a significant part of the story in the following ways:

    • Appearance/Description: Must be adequately described, not just a passing mention.

    • Actions/Behavior: Must play some role in the story's plot via actions or behavior,

    • Interactions: Must interact with the environment/characters (dialogue, exploration, etc).

  • In the description, please note the nickname(s) used for each horse in the story.

 

EXISTING XP

The Existing XP gallery is used for existing art/lit that was already counted for XP prior to migration.

All art uploaded there MUST be credited with a link to the original creator, and should be uploaded by the owner of the character.
