I know that it is sometimes hard to figure out which submission goes where. Here Are The Rules

NOTE: Journals OF ANY KIND are NOT allowed in the gallery WHATSOEVER! Please do not submit them!


If you wish to submit something to Featured, you should submit it to the Gallery first (to the right folder), and then send a note to the group with your request. If your request is granted your deviation will be moved to the Featured Folder by the Founder or a Co-Founder. Contributors can submit to featured after a vote.


ALL deviations in this folder must contain our group mascot, Saraix, in them. For some reason people have a habit of submitting to this folder despite this rule, or despite the fact that they have no idea what this folder is for. Again, deviations must contain Saraix or they will be rejected without an explanation!

:bulletpurple:Pixel Art Tutorials

No folder overrides this one except the Contest and Saraix folders. You cannot submit journals or regular art to this folder.

:bulletpurple: Stamps

All stamps, animated and non-animated, belong in this folder. Stamps with humans and emoticons, animals and letters, go here. The only folders that override this one are the Tutorial, Contest, and Saraix folders.
Group icons are not stamps.


All animated works go here EXCEPT:
- Emoticons
- Icons/Avatars
- Contests
- Saraix art
- Stamps

:bulletpurple:Animals and Scenery

All animals and scenery works go here EXCEPT if there is animation involved, there is a human/antrho character in the work, if Saraix is in the work, if the work is a dA icon, or if there are emoticons used. In that case, the artwork goes in the Animations Folder, Human Folder, Icon folder, or Emoticon Folder.


All ThePixelPalace contest submissions go in this folder, and no folder overrides this one. Do not submit anything else to this folder, or it will be declined without explanation.


All emotes go here, icons and animations included. Only the Contest, Saraix, and Featured Folders override this one.

:bulletpurple:Sprites (Inanimate)

All NON-ANIMATED sprites go in this folder, not the Misc Objects Folder. Any animated sprites go in the Animations folder unless they are for a contest or include Saraix.


This folder is only for pieces that are mainly human or anthro. The only folders that override this one are the Animations, Icon, Emotes, Saraix, and Featured Folders.


Deviations in this folder must be no larger or smaller than 50x50 pixels and must be intended to be used as icons. Deviations with icon packs (a.k.a., have multiple 50x50 icons in them) and group icons are allowed in this folder as well.  No folder overrides this folder, except in rare cases, Contests, Saraix, or Tutorials.

:bulletpurple:Misc Objects

If the artwork does not fit in any of the other categories, it goes here. So all of the works in this folder do not move, are not human, do not contain Saraix and are not icons, tutorials, emoticons, animals, scenery, or contest entries.

TLDR This is how to check off where your deviation goes:

1). Saraix (if not, go to #2)
2). Contest (if not, go to #3)
3). Tutorials (if not, go to #4)
4). Icon/Avatar (if not, go to #5)
5.) Stamp (if not, got to #6)
6). Emoticons (if not, go to #7)
7). Animation (if not, got to #8)
8). Sprites (if not, go to #9)
9.) Human/Anthro (if not, go to #10)
10.) Animals/Scenery (if not, go to #11)
11.) Misc. Objects

That is all. Thanks for reading! If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
EDIT: It's come to my attention that dA has a nasty group submission glitch, which is causing submissions to look like they are being submitted to the wrong folder half of the time, even if they are submitted correctly. Hopefully dA fixes this soon...

Hello people!
I first want to thank those of you who have taken care to submit your deviations to their proper folders. It really helps the group run smoothly!

But, for some unknown reason, there has been a very unusually high volume of people submitting loads of submissions to the wrong folders in the past 3 days alone. I am not sure why, but that's what's been going on. To show some numbers, about 38 out of the last 50 were incorrectly submitted, which is not normal for this group.

So, to remind everyone, we do have a Folder Submission Guide linked on the group's front page, and below. If you are not sure where something should go, DO NOT GUESS. As you can see by the numbers I gave you, it creates quite a lot of unnecessary traffic for us admins to go through and correct every single wrong submission.

If you do not know where something goes, please consult the submission guide. If you can't at the moment, or just don't feel like it, please don't submit anything to the group. There's a good chance you will submit incorrectly and the deviation will be rejected anyway.
If you still cannot figure it all out after consulting the guide, please free to ask any of us admins on the front page. We would love to help you!

Here is the submission guide:…

Happy pixelling!

You are encouraged to read these before you do anything else in the group:

- Group Rules…

- Submission Guide…

:bulletpurple:Submitting to Featured:bulletpurple:

Members do not have permission to submit to the Featured folder. If you wish to submit something to Featured, you must submit it to the Gallery first (and to the right folder), and then send a note to the group with your request. If your request is granted your deviation will be moved to the Featured Folder by the Founder or a Co-Founder. Contributors can submit to featured after a vote.


- Join Requests to Contributors are open.
- If you want to be a Contributor you must:
~ Not be new to dA
~ Know the basics about pixel art, but you don't have to be a great artist
~ Must have some Group Admin experience
~ Must know and follow the Group Rules
~ Must be able to log on to dA at least once every three days
~ Must help with voting in submissions and voting for contest winners
~ Must help out with answering questions members might have
~ Must be responsible, helpful and friendly
- If you feel like you can't be a Contributor anymore, you may leave that group if you wish, but I would be really glad if you stayed as a Member than if you left altogether :)

:bulletpurple:Submitting to Favorites:bulletpurple:

- If you see pixel art you like that is not in our gallery, but is by a non-member, feel free to suggest it to the group favorites. All I ask is that you just be sure that it follows the rules.


- Contributors, please feel free vote on a submission if you see there needs to be a vote, especially on Featured works where we need many votes.
- If you vote to decline, please comment why you did so in the submission process.

Please don't forget we have a donation pool on my page, so if you would like to donate, please do :D
