:bulletblue: Contributor Positions are open!. We need more help with running the group especially during this busy school/work season, We would love to have more Contributors on the team!
If you are a member and are interested in becoming a Contributor, please fill out the form below in a note to the group. Being a Contributor is not overly-demanding, so do not worry! Here are attributes a Contributor in this group should have:

- You should have some knowledge about pixel art in general, but you do not have to be an expert pixel artist!
- Know the group rules and have an idea of what goes where in the gallery.
- You should be able to log onto dA at least once every 3 days.
- You should help vote in deviations if there are any that are in need of acceptance.

Please fill out this from in a note to the group. You will be contacted after your form has been looked at.

Contributor Form

1.) Are you familiar with this group's rules? They can be found under the "About Us" tab.

2.) Are you confident with your knowledge of our gallery folders, and what goes where? If anything is not clear to you, feel free to ask questions here.

3.) Will you be able to vote on deviation submissions at least once every 3 days?

4.) Are you willing to help members and visitors with any questions they have, and work cooperatively with fellow admins?

5.) Do you have any prior group admin experience? You don't have to have any to qualify for the position, but it does help you get the job more easily.

If you have any questions about becoming a Contributor, feel free to comment here or send me a Note :)

Saraix by Anevis Happy Pixeling! Saraix by Anevis
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.
