⦅ Welcome ⦆


















【 Welcome to OC-Tea! 】
↬ We're all about the art here ↫


Please ensure you read the rules and folder types before you submit your deviation. We currently have a one-per-day submission limit, so we don't want you to have to wait to get your art out there! Submissions can take between a few hours and a few days to be approved.

Everyone is allowed to join without having to ask, regardless of whether you have an OC or not. You can find the join button on the left side of the homepage in the 'Group info' section. You are immediately accepted into the group when clicking it!

We hope you have fun here with us, keep on arting!



Requests | Members & Affiliations


► Join requests are open, you will be automatically accepted! Just click the Join button, which can be found on the left side of this page ♡
► By joining us, you are agreed that you have read all information regarding submissions and rules.
► Affiliation groups are open to all groups that have similar focuses

Rules


► Be respectful to your fellow deviants and members! Rudeness will not be tolerated
► There is a zero tolerance policy for art theft. The submission will be removed from the gallery and the member permanently banned from the group.
► Please do not advertise on the front page, or submit advertisements. They will be hidden/declined.
► Any deviation you submit MUST state somewhere, either in the tags or in the Artist Comments, that your art contains an OC, or it could be declined.


What is an OC?


► OC stands for Original Character. It is defined by a character that you made for your personal use or for a project you're making. OCs are different from random characters in that OCs have a backstory and personality you gave them and you intend on remembering who they are, potentially using them again in the future. We do accept OCs, but not random characters.

► A variation on OCs would be FCs, which characters you made for an already existing series. These are welcome here too!











⦅ Yays & Nays⦆













Note that in order for a submission to be accepted, it has to explicitly state that it depicts one or more OCs either in the title, the description, or the tags. Tagging it with #oc always suffices!



If you have any questions about your submission or why your submission was declined, please send the group a NOTE with a link to your art, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

► Renders or traces of artwork you did not make

QUALITY CONTROL

► That also being said, 90% of the time if your submission is put into the correct folder AND follows all of the rules, it will be accepted.
► Submissions that will be rejected include poorly scanned/photographed pieces, and pieces that are 60% blank space (we suggest cropping your image in that case).









⦅ Submission Folders ⦆
















Please ensure you read these thoroughly before submitting. If you are unsure, please send a note to the group with a link to your deviation, and we will assist you.




Current folders:



〚Featured〛
A folder showcasing the best of the best. Members cannot make submissions to this folder and admins can move artwork of superior quality to this folder to showcase it.

〚Reference Sheets and Bios〛
This folder contains any sort of reference sheet or biography of an OC, regardless if if they're an OC or an FC. Even if the image isn't a reference sheet, if the character's info are included in the description under a bio format, it belongs here!

〚Other People's OCs〛
Any commission, art trade, contest entry, request, gift, and anything else depicting someone else's OC(s). If a piece depicts both your OC and someone else's OC, it goes here as well! 

〚Fan Characters]〛
This folder goes both for fan characters on their own and fan characters together with a canon character. 

〚Comic Pages and Covers〛
Regardless of whether it's a oneshot or a page of your webcomic, any art with multiple panels goes into this folder.

〚Humans and Humanoids〛
Any art depicting one or more original OCs that are humans or humanoids, for example humans, trolls, fairies, demons, etc. This does not include anthros and furries, though kemonomimies fit in both this and the anthro and furry folder.

〚Anthro and Furries〛
Any art depicting one or more original OCs that are an anthropomorphic animal, object, or concept. Kemonomimies fit both here and in the humans and humanoids folder. 

〚Ferals and Animals〛
Any art depicting one or more original OCs that are an animal, no matter if they're intelligent or regular animals. This can be anything as long as it walks on four (or more) feet, so mythological OCs are welcome here as well!

〚Other Species and Mixed Groups〛
If you're not sure about which category your OC would fit into, this would be the ideal folder. Examples would be monsters who aren't quite humanoid, sphinxes, and taurs. This folder doubles as a folder for artwork depicting two characters of different species categories, for example a human with an animal or an anthro with a humanoid.

〚Mature Content〛
Anything that has a mature content filter goes onto this folder. We will never accept explicit porn or fetish artwork, but things like artistic nudity, bloody gore, ideologically insensitive artwork, pinups, and non-explicit sexual images are accepted.



► If you do not see a category that fits your submission, please feel free to suggest a new folder via note to the group.
► Please send us a note if a folder becomes full!
All folder rules are in their respective folders, PLEASE ensure you read them before submitting





Hey everyone! Your cofounder ElithianFox here.




We're excited to announce that we have changed our folders and rules to be more efficient, more clear, and more easy to understand! Our old folders have been moved to the 'Old Folders' section of the gallery and are no longer accessible. They're not emptied, so if you wish for a piece that's in there to appear in the new folders, feel free to remove it from the gallery and submit it to the new folders!

Next to the new folders, we also had a few changes in the rules and regulations. The most notable changes are the following: 


► Traditional art rules have changed. As long as your picture is clear, has correct colours, and is crisp in quality, it will be accepted even if the workspace or the tools are in the picture.

► Mature Content folder rules have become stricter. We no longer accept explicit porn, sexual nudity, or fetishes. It will be strictly reserved for artistic nudes, artwork showing gore, sexual themes without any genitals in the image, and pinups.




As for the folders!

We hope that with these new folders, the group is a bunch more functional. If you're not sure about what goes into which folder, you can always send us a note, and be sure to review the rules on our group's frontpage!
