Alright, as I can see, people aren't reading titles correctly, so I need to put this up.
This blog is about the folder submissions. Please read this to make the right selection choice!


Thank you :iconsankofarida: for the suggestion! I hope that this explanation is clear. If it isn't, please comment and ask your questions.

Founders, and Contributors, as well as the MH deviants themselves, please read this:

Featured Folder
This folder, as it's explained in the folder description, is only allowed for the "Weekly Featured" person's selected character artwork. No other artwork is to be submitted into that folder UNLESS you are the person whose monster is being featured. Because the feature is of the deviant's 1 OC character *or other special cases*, there are a number of chances for everyone to win. :iconkonekordz: made me think about it, and she was right. Only one character should be featured by that artist. It gives a wider range of being the next "Weekly Feature" so keep chunking out these lovely art's that you guys are producing. Just don't submit them here unless you are the "Weekly Featured" as previously stated.

These are DOWN TEMPORARLY TIL THE WINTER SO THE WHOLE CONCEPT CAN BE REVAMPED AND PURSUED ONCE AGAIN!

Monster High Bases
As it’s stated, this folder is only for bases of Monster High. That can go for the bases that people constantly use for their character's base design, the monster high profiles, and other bases like the journals.

MH OC Students, Bio's, Drawings, etc.. FOLDER TWO

Folder One is Full, so PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT INTO IT, OR YOUR DRAWINGS/ART WILL BE REJECTED!

This folder is for the Monster High Student OC's bio's, drawings of them by the original artist, skullettes / skulls, and other art related to that character. People who submit art of a certain character, and you are not the artist, do be warned it will be considered fan art of the character. For example, let's use PRANKY! If someone other than :iconhasana-chan: were to draw Pranky, it'd be sent to the Fan Art folder. Now there are exceptions to this. If you are not that good of an artist, and you asked someone to draw them for you, then, AND ONLY THEN, will it be accepted into this folder. That goes for character design, skulls / skullettes, and others.

Also, as this has happened. If there is more than one character on that piece of art, it is ALSO sent to the Fan Art folder.

Because this seems to be happening ALOT lately, I will state this:

If you have drawn YOUR character and someone else's in your art and IT IS NOT YOURS, please submit to the Fan Art Folder.

MH OC Teachers Bio's, Drawings, Etc...
This folder is for the Monster High Teacher OC's bio's, drawings of them by the original artist, skullettes / skulls, and other art related to that character. People who submit art of a certain character, and you are not the artist, do be warned it will be considered fan art of the character. For example, let's use UMBRA SPARTA! (I love this name for some reason....) If someone other than :iconprincessabiliss: were to draw Umbra, it'd be sent to the Fan Art folder. Now there are exceptions to this. As explained previously, if you are not that good of an artist, and you asked someone to draw them for you, then, AND ONLY THEN, will it be accepted into this folder. That goes for character design, skulls / skullettes, and others.

If there is more than one character on that piece of art, it is ALSO sent to the Fan Art folder.

MH Other Faculty OC Bio's, Drawings, etc...
This is for the other adults of the Monster High OC creation. People who are like the headless headmistress, a secretary, etc. This is for their drawings, bio's, and other things related to their characters just like the two previous folders These aren't the ones that are mainly teachers. They are such like deans of other schools, possibly secretaries, janitors, and the like.

MH OC Pets
As the name states, this folder is for the pets of the lovely MH OC's that you guys have created.

MH OC Lit, Diaries, and Journals
This is the folder for the journals, diaries, and literature of the MH OC's. Submit all writing basically that you do for them here. The only ones that DON'T belong here are Biography's of the characters themselves.

MH OC Fan Art, AT, etc
This is the folder is for the Fan art, Art trade, commissions, and other artwork of the characters. Most of the time, the fan art is considered when someone draw's their character and another one in the form of art, comic, or just skit, etc... Same as it goes for commission, birthday presents, and other such things.

*Edit*
After extensive thinking and convencing, I have decided that ONLY those who aren't the original artist that draw a character are to put their art in there. Also, in the case that you draw your character and someone else's together, that also goes in this folder. I hope this helps with confusion and a easier process of submissions. This is the only case where I would allow the Main Canon's to be featured, and that'd have to be within fan art ONLY!


MH OC Comics
Since we have alot of entires of comics, there is now a particular folder that are for short comics, or others like it to be submitted. Thank you for the suggestion.

Monthly Themes
The name of this should explain it all, but in case, this folder is ONLY for submissions of Monthly themed art that is assigned for our group.


MH OC Contest Entries
This folder is for whenever we have contest in this group, or others. If you want to submit contest art from other groups here, that is fine with me as long as it's ONLY for a contest and not something random.

MH OC Other Contest Folder
This is for the other MH Contest that exist around DA and other places. If you'd wish to submit your contest peices dealing with other groups that aren't us, please submit that art here.

MH OC Dolls
Anything that has to deal with your OC's doll, goes into this folder. This doesn't include comparision faceup pictures though however. In this folder, it would be appriciated if the characters were fully realized first before being of submission. For example, :iconrach-hells-dollhaus: made this fav.me/d5wliai . THis is a fully realized OC, despite the fact I can tell it's a Spectra repaint. The clothes, hair, face, and makeup are different. These types of doll art submissions with be allowed/accepted into the group.

MH OC Stamps, Icon's, Wallpapers, etc
This folder is for the stamps, icons, wallpapers, meme design, etc for your characters. For example, :iconsmallflame: made a thought bubble of her OC Pestilence, and it's for you to draw on for your own purpose. It's okay to have something like that in there.

Monster High OC Adoptables Folder
If your wanting to make adoptables for people to purchase, please submit them this way in this folder.

I hope that this clears up any confusion that was being had about why your art was either rejected or if you thought you sent it to the right folder. Again, if you have any questions, please don't be afraid to ask.

I think the Base Folder should just be removed entirely. 99% of Monster High Bases are traced straight from the official Monster High Artwork and that's Art Theft.

Well, the sad part about that being as true as it is, some people use them as bases cause they can't exactly draw that uses them.

I'm trying to think of a way to work with this cause some of the background bases would also be considered that as well :/

Hmmm. That's a good point. Stupid backgrounds being so hard to draw! CURSE THEM! DX!

As for people using bases to make their own OCs, I'd say the lack of bases should be motivation to improve their own skills then just leech off someone else's work =/

Well, that's true, but I have had some people who honestly can't draw to save their lives. Thus, I think that's why they come to artist such as yourself, or others, to ask if you guys could draw them based off a base they made cause of their lack of skills.

I'm not trying to make excuses for them, but I don't want to eleminate something that's possibly able to help someone. Kinda a hinderance and a helpful tool in some parts.
