PLEASE READ THESE RULES BEFORE SUBMITTING! IF YOUR DEVIATION WAS DECLINED, IT WAS PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS!
All submissions must be related to Halo in some way. If your submission relates to some obscure part of the canon, it would help if you could mention in the description how it ties in although you'll generally be given the benefit of the doubt.
We do not accept in-game screenshots. Unaltered, unedited screenshots of video games in-progress are allowed to be placed into your Scrapbook only. Also, edited and altered video game screenshots are a violation of dA's copyright policy. FAQ #578: What does deviantART consider to be a proper desktop screenshot?
Your Bungie.net/Vanity Spartan is boring and will be declined. Draw us a picture of him or her instead.
Do not submit stolen official concept art or any art which is not entirely your work. Submitting some random piece of official or concept Halo art is against the dA TOS. It will be denied and will be reported to dA. FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?
Suggestive or sexually themed pictures/literature will be considered for tastefulness on a case-by-case basis. Please respect that not everyone is interested in seeing this sort of content in a Halo fangroup. Especially nude Elites. Come on guys...
Photographs of posed figurines will also be considered on a case by case basis. If it looks like you've put some effort into creating an interesting diorama, we'll let it in, but if it's a blurry, low quality snapshot uploaded in the wrong category of some random toy posed on your desk, we reserve the right to decline as these are boring.
Please submit to the correct gallery folders. We're happy moving stuff around for now, but if people don't learn we'll have to start declining things.
Crossovers are allowed, even if they are critical of the Halo series.
Screenshot comics and heavily post-processed screenshots will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.
If you are looking for constructive criticism to improve your artwork, be it a finished product or a WIP, feel free to submit to the "Critique Wanted" gallery folder or note Illogical-Lynx. I don't bite and I'm very happy to help out with advice and suggestions.
If there are any suggestions or queries about the rules please send a note to the group or the founder.
