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.

What? A Cosplay Kickstarter? What is this? Jack Frost? Music Videos? WHAAAT?!?! And Elsa? This is too perfect!

Jack Frost: Operation Snowballs and Funtimes!…

It's official, I've started a project on Kickstarter for my cosplaying! If you don't know what Kickstarter's a crowd-funding community where people donate money to a person's cause or project! Please at least take a look for me! I have a lot of aspirations for cosplaying as Jack, and it includes music videos, GIFs, photoshoots, alternate versions, ect!


*Oh, and if you don't want to donate or you can't, please do me the biggest favour in the world and spread the word! Any type of advertisement is appreciated! Thank you guys!

Creating this took over a month to create...I cannot tell you all the emotion I went through to make this a reality...I had to make the video all over again because the program I originally used corrupted the finished file... ;( BUT I persevered and got it done! Now all I need to do it advertise like a crazy person and meet my goal!

You can find me here on my cosplay page, FROSTPLAY!

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:

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 :)
