For a couple of weeks, Deviantart has been randomly telling group admins the wrong folder to which you are submitting your art to.  Because of this, a few submissions have been denied incorrectly.  Admins are asked to now check the submission itself before outright denying it, but if you feel that your submission was incorrectly denied, please comment on the notification you get.

The following rule has been more or less an unwritten (and sometimes unenforced) one for a while and for different reasons, however, it now needs to be explicitly stated:

NSFW models, whose use in imagery would break DA rules, will not be accepted into the group in any form or fashion.  They may be able to take advantage of a loophole in the site's rules for your own gallery, but they could never legitimately be used in art submissions to DA.  Thus, there is no benefit to the group as a whole for us to promote the models in our gallery folders.

This applies only to models whose imagery would break the DA rules.  So, genitals or sex toys meant to look like their "realistic" counterparts are pretty much what we are talking about.

The point has been made that female models have been accepted before, however, that was a fallacy of the accepter of the submission and the lack of clear rules.  That submission has been removed from the gallery folders following this decision.  This has nothing to do with personal opinion, something I find to be a precursor to corruption, but rather with the continuity of the group.  Taking advantage of a loop hole (or accidentally accepting rule-breaking images) is not a good way for this group to stay on DA's good side.

wondering if someone has a large wing uv-unwrap  (alicorn wing unwrap) ?  I'm working on tipping my feathers dark to match my ears... looking to save time. Else, i'll just have to do it my self :3  when i check the tga used in the wings, its a small square of just 1 tone color. Im looking to add detail.

It's the way the character is made. You'd most likely have to edit the character to fit such an UV mapping then.

Got it :3
 I threw the wing smd into blender3d and when I went to do UV unwrap, i noticed it was already set.…

So all i had to do was paint, export the image and replace the png inside the vtf. wings.vtf covered open and closed large wing so by just editing the left closed, it updated left spread, right spread, and right closed as well. 

end result:…

Are you moving the parts while in the Motion Editor? If you are in the Timeline tab, any edits you do will not count. Make sure you are in the Motion editor (or even the Graph Editor) to make changes.

Does anyone know how to texture stuff? Because I dont know how to/what to download
Any help?
argodaemon Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
The main tools you need are a general picture editing program, like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp, and VTFEdit (unless you have the VTF extension in Photoshop).  VTFEdit can be used to convert VTF (Valve Texture Files) into a more general TGA format.  You can then export that TGA back as a VTF.


Some textures are hard to get to, especially those that are part of the map itself.  Other ones, as for loaded props, are fairly easy.
