That's fine. If it's too large I may need a layered PSD file to handle organization though.

@Mikey
Oh god

@YourPalWaver
It's a yes/no decision based on the combo of both the OC and artist. I'm not gonna say that one is fine but the other is not.

@PrincessMoonlight
That would be accepted, yes, but there's certainly room and time for improvement too.

@Barhandar
Technically yes, but if there's at least decent effort and the base isn't a stolen trace of someone's art without permission, I'd look the other way.

@Guardian Talon
For a flying oc? That'd be fine.

10 images taken before disaster. With so many entries coming in, I assumed quality control would be higher than last year, not lower. But in a sense, I feel a lot more relaxed knowing there's no way any of my submissions will get rejected. I'll let my server know too.

So we can see less of the OCs, which means they can look worse. But this punishes all the ones that put effort into looking good.

Nah no nope. I was trying to imply you'd get a wave of other really bad submissions from me and my friends, but no. I'm bailing out of this as an artist. This year isn't worth any effort if it's going to be like this.
The last ones were good, where people worked hard to draw their OCs and get them in, for many people it was a reason to create an artist tag for themselves. I loved that! Now though, it's nothing but an excuse to get artists to give you free art over on the requests thread, or apparantly submit your own low effort recolors. Really sad to see it go this way. But I'll always be happy I got to be part of the earlier ones.

Maybe two collabs are needed? One with standards and one without. I don't want to put in the effort if the plan is to cover that up with so many OCs they all look as bad as each other.

Didn't expect this till thanksgivin.

If this follows from last years growth, then it may be 1400+ OCs. Looking forward to this as always.

Quality control is going to be the same level as it has been in previous years — submissions that appear to be created to intentionally detract from the finished image will be rejected, as will ones that don't meet the guidelines/rules. We're not going to reject someone because their art skills are lacking. There's always been a few submissions that were not of stellar quality in previous collabs, but those are always a minority, and they're hardly noticeable overall.

After all, I would never mean to imply that someone isn't part of this community because they're not artistically skilled. We do have skilled volunteers to help those people, but if they'd rather draw their own image, that's accepted too, and always has been. After all, you gotta be bad at drawing before you can get good at drawing.

Hey Joey, so I'd like to make a submission with two characters. But the problem is the two characters I'd like to submit have a large size difference. That being one is a Sphinx and the other is a full sized poner. Is that a problem, or should I just stick to the one regular sized pony? Or the one Sphinx?

@AaronMk
/me imagines 1/5th of the collab being a sphinx.

Yeah, that might be a problem…


I thought so, because if I were to do a pair with one of my other characters it'd just be… a mutant overgrown sea pony. So I'll just have to go with the regular poner. Figured I'd ask all the same.

You just OK'd an image that's an MSpaint edit of someone elses uncredited work with transperncy issues.

I took a five second glance at it on a phone, which doesn't show transparency issues. Why not point those things out and ask if I noticed them instead of just assuming?

@AaronMk
Yeah, that kinda size difference would definitely be an issue. Everything needs to be an approximately average pony size or smaller. Can't have one image taking up half the collab.

The 2020 tag description still says 2019 as a heads up.

@Joey
Why not point out that you only gave it a glance on the phone instead of assuming I knew that? You're the collab runner and you said "That would be accepted, yes". I just took your word for it.

Look this isn't some major showcase of the best of the best. this is all about the community of Derpibooru and the MLP fandom as a whole. Its about coming together and making something grand for all to see we are here, we are kicking and we are still together.

It is also about reaching out and helping others join in on the fun and share our gifts and talents, even our spirits with others across the world.

I've taken part in each collab and i plan to give it what time i can for 2020, because although my time is limited, i want to share the gratitude i have for this community with as many i can.

But i will ask, why not give the collab another go, nothing says we can't help others with their characters.

Fixed.

I'm not the one who seemingly tries to find something to complain about with every community collab we do. Rather you recall it or not, this is not the first time you and I have had this conversation, and I'd really prefer to not turn this into some kinda annual tradition between us two.

I can assure you that the quality of the overall image is going to be on par with the previous collabs. I'm going to apply the same standards and quality guidelines that have been applied to all the previous ones. In fact, it'll likely be slightly better, as this year there's people like Bigshot and Barhandar also looking at stuff and pointing out stuff I may've missed.

as for quality control, I'm almost certain other users will come forward and assist in quality control, just as Barhandar and T27B did the previous year. the Collab has only begun, give it a few days for these users to rise to the occasion.

Missed your post in the chaos. Upscales are not really ideal — it's preferred that your image be natively at least 800-1000px hoof-to-head. Images below that resolution, or ones that are clearly upscalled, are generally not acceptable (unless it's like a bunny or squirrel OC or something).

You can always ask in the other thread too, there's several people there who could draw an OC for you if you can't make a larger image.
