Club Rules!

Circa. FEB 17, 2010
ABOUT :icontoon-up:
~Toon Up is an invitation only group of top notch artists that have an extra special skill for drawing the female form in an exceptional manner. The art is fun, sexy and has that "X" factor to it! NO, I don't mean in a pornographic way.
~We DON'T accept nudity in any submissions as a general rule, we want to reach as big an audience as we can. You will be removed immediately if you break this rule.
~The artists contributing their work to TOON-UP want to bring you the best viewing experience possible, so we just can't accept anything less. So, for those that are not a direct part of TOON-UP, please do NOT be offended if any of your submissions are not accepted. It is NOT because you suck or anything... it's probably due to the particular work not fitting in with what we are looking to present.
THANK YOU to everyone that has made TOON-UP an instant success!!!!!


As some of you may know, I'm an artist and the Creative Director for :icondrumfishproductions: and we are having an art contest. Below is the official post from us.

We have found several artists here on dA and continue to do so through these contests. We currently have 2 new properties development from artists who have entered the contest. I have also written my first story and the artist who drew it was someone who entered.

Check out the contest and join!! The Deadline is April 16th, 2014

Just when you thought this group wasn’t doing anything, we’re proud to announce our FOURTH :icondrumfishproductions:  Art Contest here on deviantArt!

Our first three contests were full of AMAZING entries and we know the same will be said about this new contest. Some of our past winners AND contributors have even contributed to some future projects we’re working on. So, you don’t necessarily have to be the “winner” to make this contest worth entering!

Since our last contest, we’ve added our new original graphic novel, BUGGED, to our library of titles (making it four, which seems fitting time to have our fourth contest!) and we’ve added two new figurines (Nina from NEVERMINDS and Splash from SENTINELS).

The rules are simple and the same as before:

1. Create a piece of art featuring any Drumfish Productions character/s. (Sentinels, NeverMinds, our Anthology and/or Bugged. See galleries or and… for reference.)

2. Use any medium you like. Pencils, inks, paints, etc. Let's see your talent. Go wild!

3. Deadline: April 16th, 2014. Don't wait until the last minute though! Time goes by quickly and before you know it the deadline will pass!

And here are the prizes:

1yr. subscription to deviantART
All 5 Sentinels Graphic Novels, Neverminds #1, 2 and 3 and Bugged!
Your choice of one of Drumfish's figurines.

3 month subscription to deviantART
All 5 Sentinels Graphic Novels, Neverminds #1, 2 and 3 and Bugged!

On April 17th, 2014, the Founder and Co-Founders will each score the entrees. Each piece will be scored on a scale of 1-5. FIVE being the highest and ONE being the lowest. The top 3 scores will win.

Feel free to ask any questions that you may have and we will answer them promptly.

So, pull out your sketch pad, wacom tablet, paint brushes, etc. and let's see some art!!

Contest is open to all contributors, members, watchers, and any deviant interested. Please feel free to pass along this journal to anyone who may be interested, or repost this in your own journal.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Hi. :)

I have quite a few vintage pin ups to submit here, but they keep expiring. Do you know when I should submit again?

Thanks in advance. :)

I submitted some artwork to the group a day or so ago, but it looks like the submissions "expired" so they got rejected. :(

I have a question, you said the piece that the artist have to submit will have to be women, but how would you define the age of a women? like age 17 or 18? So if the character that I want to submit is age 17 would it meet the minum requirment?

Hmmm...would my work qualify for this sort of group?

Noticing lots o male cartoon character art lately. Not that I have a problem with that but I thought members could only submit female cartoon version characters. I was out of DA for a while and just wanted to know if there were any changes on the submissions rules.
