Submission Rules

Read these before submitting

:bulletred: Here are some rules for when posting in the VALVe-community gallery:

- No sketch work or WIP's. Finished work only. We do not want your scraps.
- Original elements such as OCs go in fan work. If your submission is not put there it will be declined. OC's will be declined if they do not look Valve related.
- If you're going to submit your OCs to the group, please be sure they fit the universe of Valve games. If they don't look recognizable, your submission will be declined.
- No : hate art/bashing, nudity, excessive amounts of violence or gore, crossovers, traces, or characters from other non Valve related series.
- Quality counts. No photos of drawn images, please. Make sure to submit only your best work!
- We do not accept slash work, unless official. Please check our affiliates for groups that do support it.
- All stamps go into fan work only.

:bulletblack: Please refrain from submit bombing to the gallery. No more than 3 images per WEEK.

:bulletred: If your submission is declined, please don't take it out on any admins. Chances are it was breaking one of the rules. Please don't let this discourage you from submitting to the gallery again, let this encourage you to improve. ☺

Active Members


Feel free to affiliate with us if you're Valve or Steam related.

As you all know, this group has been dead for some time. Well, some what dead. Aside from Dr Paine, who has voted on stuff from time to time, I've been the only contributor when it comes to the submission process. That makes it hard for me to accept or decline submissions when I'm not available.

"So why the sudden journal after nearly two years of inactivity?"
Well, I requested ownership a few weeks ago during my visit home (part of the reason why I was unable to make this journal, among other things). I hope to bring the group back to life with whatever is left of the community. Having people continue to create journals about recent Valve activity, increasing the amount of artwork that gets submitted here, and hopefully re-upgrading the group when the time comes.

That being said, I will be looking for contributors who are interested in assisting me with this. Send me a note either through the group, or more conveniently to my dA.  

The requirements are as follows:

-Age (will be taken into account)
-Contact information (skype, steam, etc)
-Past/current experience with groups (In other words: History. What groups have you been apart of?).
-An explanation on why you think you would be a good choice?
-(optional) Any referrals.

Simple enough. After they are submitted, I will contact you if I am consider granting you the position. We will then have a conversation so I can get a feel for how you are as a person.

This is the only means I have of obtaining contributors. Seeing as how I lost ties with the community, at least.

If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will get to you as soon as possible. No later than 2 years.

Thanks for understanding and for sticking around~

Funny enough, I was in the middle of changing our current GMOD section into a joint Gmod/SFM folder. 

As much as I would love to have a dedicated SFM folder, that would require a lot of moving. Hopefully this makes the submission process a lot smoother.

Just rename it to Gmod/SFM
sirlan Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2014  Student Digital Artist
... I just said I was in the middle of doing that. 

Meaning? I did it already.

The moderation team has failed to live up to their duties by approving submissions here within the past couple of months.  I advise for any aspiring artists to seek a different group.

This comment will most likely be removed for whatever reason, so I'll keep a screencap of this comment if the situation ever arises.
sirlan Featured By Owner Edited Jul 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Yeah... We have a lack of administration here. I'm pretty much the only person who accepts/declines stuff. 

Anyway, no, this comment will stay. I understand the concern over the matter. I made a journal about this a week or so ago, but it got deleted since we had no administrators to approve it. Now that I have the group, I will write something up in the coming week (TI4 is going on atm). I have hopes of bringing this group back to life, if I am able. 

If you had any content that was expired, feel free to resubmit it. 

(also sorry for the late response)

I've only been a member since November of last year, and I've already decided I'm going to leave. I know it doesn't make any difference, but really what's the point.

How long did it take for your submissions to expire?

I've been waiting two days, no one is responding to my notes asking if anything is wrong, and I haven't seen any new art appear from other members.

I don't know but I'm willing to bet it was a week at least. This group's admins are all dead, apparently.
MichaelTannock Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
So, you're right, it's a week: mine have just expired, a week later. No art from other people in that time either.
