Welcome to Cartoons-become-real!


Welcome to the group!
As every group, we have some rules - but hakuna matata, it's not big deal. You just have to follow these simple rules and advice:
:bulletblack: Submit to the correct folder! We have a folder for every kind of picture so deviations can be classified. Please, respect that and don't submit anything to the "Featured" folder. If you have any doubt, leave a comment, and if you have any suggestion for a new folder, it will be welcome!
:bulletblack: "Cartoons" is referred to 2D animation and also CGI. Also other kind of drawings like comics or anime can become real, so yep, they're considered in this group, too! And also videogames characters!
:bulletblack: By real, we don't mean human. By this, I mean that a picture of a real lion representing Simba from The Lion King will be accepted, but a drawing of a human version of Simba won't.
:bulletblack: Try to make the characters look real. Art isn't better or worse depending on the artist. It's just different from one person to another. You can be as awesome as the most famous of the artists or a little child who loves cartoons. Whether you're one thing or the other, please try to make the character look more realistic than in the original version. Eyes can't be as big as in anime, they must have a nose,... This rule can be violated in some cases, though. If the textures really ressemble real textures (hair, skin, cloth...), the drawings can maintain their original proportions. That's what we call 'untooning'. A deviation of this sort will be included in the "Untooning" folder if it's based on a screencap from the movie, anime, etc., or in the one called "Photo manips" if it isn't. More information is included in the description of each folder.
:bulletblack: Mature content is accepted, as long as it is marked with the mature content filter.
:bulletblack: The simplest of all rules: respect each other. On the one hand, every artist has the right to express in their artworks whatever they want, so don't insult them for that. On the other hand, artists are not allowed to insult/laugh at others with their deviations.
:bulletblack: An explanation about what movie, etc. the character is from in the deviation's description will be highly appreciated. I obviously don't know every fandom in the world, so if I want to compare the deviation to the original character, I will need a mention to the movie, etc. he/she is from.
:bulletblack: OCs are accepted if their original form is in cartoon style and the deviation submitted here is realistic.
:bulletblack: The folder Inspired in is there for artworks which depict versions of a character that do not look exactly like them, like genderbend, gijinka designs or humanized designs, among others. Check the gallery for more examples!
:bulletblack: Please, before suggesting something to the group's favourites, consider submitting it to the gallery.
:bulletblack: Enjoy yourselves in here! Again, I will read any kind of suggestion you have.

I'm sorry for my English. If you can correct my mistakes, I will be really grateful.

Gallery Folders

Realism-In-Anime will be hold a kick starter contest running from July 25th-September 25th 2015. This contest will feature art of your favorite anime couple. Your submission must meet the standard requirements of the group with semi-realistic and realism values.

There will be two judges, founder and co-founder. The winner will receive 500 points and their winning submission will be displayed on the groups front page along with their name and avatar. Commissioning artists are pending as of right now.

Theme: Your favorite anime couple.

:bulletred: You must title your submission 'Contest Entry' and submit it into the correct contest folder.
:bulletred: One submission per person.
:bulletred: You may NOT recreate a scene from an anime/manga series and call it your own. (no recoloring)
:bulletred: Do not submit stolen art, you will be disqualified and booted from the group.
:bulletred: Your submission MUST have semi-realistic/realistic value.
:bulletred: Yaoi/Yuri couples are allowed.
:bulletred: Mature submissions must be filtered.
:bulletred: Crossovers are allowed
:bulletred: In the description of your submission you must explain what anime(s) your characters are from and their names.

Judgment and Criteria:
Since this is a small contest we do not require your submission to have a background, I understand realistic art takes a lot of time and effort so small details will NOT be required, but if you choose to add said details it will be taken into consideration when judging the piece.

You will be judged on
Pose-What position/stance your characters are in. (please note that your submission can be simply from the shoulders up or full body, it doesn't matter which)

Body Language- The flow of your characters.

Eyes- The only detail that will be judged and paid the most attention to is the eyes of your characters. Very important to make them as realistic/semi realistic as you can.

Setting-what situation your characters are portraying.

Emotional Value- How emotionally involved your audience feels when viewing your piece.

-If any confusion on these rules at all please contact the founder BellaNamikaze,

or the Co-founder - Sanzo7

Una pregunta, aquí sólo aceptáis realismo o el semirrealismo también entra? :meow: 
Lyokofan97 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2014
No estoy muy segura de en qué consiste el semirrealismo ._. Pero he aceptado muchas veces dibujos que aunque no parecen reales del todo, sí tienen un uso de luces y sombras bastante natural y proporciones más parecidas a las de un humano que a las de un dibujo. Cosas que las ves y piensas "es un dibujo, pero qué realista le ha quedado" xD
Puedes echarle un ojo a la galería a ver si encuentras semirrealismo, o si no explícamelo un poco ^^; jajaja

Es básicamente un estilo que si bien tiene elementos realistas, como por ejemplo las formas de los ojos, la boca, etc. o las texturas, también incluye elementos típicos del dibujo como ojos o cabezas más grandes de lo normal. En la galería, esto: cartoons-become-real.deviantar… o esto:… podrían cualificar como semirrealismo. :meow: 
Lyokofan97 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014
Ah, en ese caso, siempre que no sean proporciones demasiado exageradas, y las texturas, luces y colores pretendan un efecto realista, las aceptaré casi seguro ^^
Pero por ejemplo si llevan lineart no, porque se nota que no pretende un efecto real.
Por otro lado, si son fotomanipulaciones a Photoshop que mantienen tal cual las proporciones y formas, pero dan texturas completamente realistas, se trata de untooning y también se acepta en dicha carpeta :)
