Hey there CAC fans! As we explained on our latest episode, we're planning a double-header OC extravaganza and we want your help! This is the journal which contains all the information, rules and everything else about these upcoming episodes and how you can submit your own pieces of art for us to take a look at.



Information



We'll be having two OC episodes, split up into two distinct themes:

#1 - "OCs: How to"
Airdate: Tuesday, March 5th, 9pm EST

This episode will be of a strange format. We'll be taking a more structured approach to how OCs are made, why they are made, what makes an OC "good" or "bad", as well as techniques to improve the reception and creation of your Original Character. We'll also be discussing the differences between "Ponysonas", "Open-Themed OCs" and "Show-Themed OCs". This episode will include a lot of theory and personal contributions, but this is NOT the episode you are submitting for.

#2 - "OC: Examples"
Airdate: Tuesday, March 12th, 9pm EST

Now THIS is the episode you want to submit for. In this episode, we'll be using the wonderful examples submitted by you guys to re-establish and confirm the differences in OCs. This is a more art-focused episode, whereas the last one was more knowledge-focused.



Submission Rules/Guidelines



#1: The art submitted must be of your personal OC. Please do NOT submit artwork done of us, or any other "well-known" OCs (such as Sibsy or MandoPony).

#2: The art submitted must be made by you. The whole point of the episode is to get you all more involved, so please do not send in any submissions that you've commissioned/requested/been gifted etc.

#3: The art submitted should be made within the time-period we are allowing these submissions. We would heavily prefer that if you already have a piece done, to please make another. We want this to be a motivation for our fans, and we feel that having a piece already done takes away from this. This is not a hard rule, but your piece would have to be something fantastic in order to circumvent this.

#4: We would prefer the piece to be focusing on your OC. Please try to avoid putting your OC in with show characters, or other characters I mentioned above in Rule #1. We are slightly more lenient on this rule, but please try and keep it focused on your pony. This (and the above rule) will affect how we choose submissions to be had on the show.

#5: This is a PG show, and as such we'll be only featuring pieces that fit that theme. This means no "mature" or "suggestive" pieces, and even limits from use of blood. This is non-negotiable. It's a happy show about prancing ponies, so keep with that theme and we'll all be cheery.



Submission Instructions



Please send all submission into our email CutieArtCrusaders@gmail.com by March 1st. The subject line of the email must contain the word OC in the title. This part is very, very essential as we put in filters in our email system that picks out emails with that word in it. Edit: We encourage everyone to upload their pictures to their personal pages (DA) and send us a link, so we can link it in our favourites folders, and also so we can promote YOU! :D

Also keep in mind that, unlike our fan art episode, we cannot guarantee you will have your art piece on the show. We haven't decided how many piece we'll feature on the episode (it's dependant on the time available), but we will be picking and choosing pieces for this episode.


Thank you for all for your constant support and encouragement. We hope you enjoy and take this opportunity to make some amazing art! We know you're capable of it, and we can't wait to see what you can come up with.

On behalf of the entire CAC,

-RainbowPlasma

P.S. This is a completely irrelevant thing, but secret-pony made us into plz accounts! It's so cool! :D

I've always wanted to art something up of my OC... But never had time. You know what? I'll do it. Hopefully this can be motivation to actually get something done.

this sounds like fun and I do have an OC, I'll think about it, but I have an animation to work on... on the other hoof I little free time right know and I'd be able to finish this faster plus practice with my new tablet and I could put its pieces in flash later!

P.S. Can you let me know if you plan on doing a Luna or Doctor Whooves episode

I know the rules say the art shouldn't be of you four, but what if our OC is interacting with one of you?

Do you want a clear view of the cutie mark, so you can comment on it as well?

Sorry for the late response!

It's not necessary :) Some OCs don't even have a cutie mark!

I've already started mine and decided to have the cutie mark showing. It's a symbol I came up with during the Summer, and thought looked really cool.

Cutie mark talk aside, I think you're gonna like what I'm doing. :)

When we submit our pic, are we allowed to also upload it on the web to DA or Tumblr or something for our watchers to see?
Reply
:iconcutieartcrusaders:
CutieArtCrusaders Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
We encourage everyone to upload them to DA, and send us a link. We want to promote artists, and the best way to do that is to specifically send us a DA to link to! :D

Hey, quick question, so the OC deviation needs to be relatively new or it can be one made sometime ago? If you guys need a recent deviation I guess I can make one this weekend

Please refer to Rule #3:
"#3: The art submitted should be made within the time-period we are allowing these submissions. We would heavily prefer that if you already have a piece done, to please make another. We want this to be a motivation for our fans, and we feel that having a piece already done takes away from this.

This should answer your question.

Yes, but we would advise just sending in one good one as opposed to many okay ones. We'll only pick a maximum of one entry per person.

Yes. It makes it 1000x harder if we have multiple places to check. So we're making it necessary to send it into the email. Sorry if that's inconvenient, but everyone should have access to an email address.

That is fine. Multiple OCs is fine (but keep it away from show characters or "famous" OCs).
