Submission requirements

Submission requirements:

• We do not accept photography, photo manipulations or 3D rendering, like G-mods for a example.
• Pictures need to be of quality. We try to be generous when judging these things, but what we look for is effort. If it looks like the person put real effort into the work, that’s usually enough.
• A key thing to remember that the group is Badass CHARACTERS! In this case, a character is an intelligent, tool user capable of manifesting some personality. Overwhelmingly, we prefer that some sort of humanoid be in the picture.
• Something has to be badass about the picture itself. If it’s not self-evident then it’s not badass enough.
What is Badass?
The state of being badass can be a little hard to define. If you’re wondering whether or not a given picture is badass, first look through our gallery. Failing that, here are some hints…
• Does it make you want to say “THAT’S TOTALLY BADASS?”
• Is it METAL? Does it look like it came striding out of a heavy metal ballad?
• Does it look like it’ll kick YOUR ass? Normally this means through physical force, but definitely isn’t limited to it?
• Is it of a picture of someone who had proven their badassery, in real life or fiction? Teddy Roosevelt and Conan the Barbarian both would be suitable.
• Does it feel epic? Does it feel gritty?
Badass is a state of mind ultimately. It’s a refusal to take shit. It’s the force of will to make opposition fall aside.

Sup BADASS! :iconbadassplz:

Even the most gifted badasses have to train. Whether it's mastering their techniques, achieving spiritual enlightenment or just plain old working out, badasses need to train!
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What we are looking for is...
1. The character or characters working to become or maintain their badass status.

2. This training can be all sorts of things. It can be pumping weights or exercising. It can be practicing with their powers or abilities. If you like it can be something more spiritual, like levitating rocks with their mind. Even meditation, done right, can be badass.

3. Sparring with an opponent can be accepted. However, you should be careful to make it different from an actual fight or combat.

4. While some forms of training can be conveyed in a static pose (like standing beneath a waterfall), most of the best involve action.

5. Avoid things they do all the time normally. For example, a picture Batman punching a street thug is just that. Saying he's training to punch the Joker isn't going to cut it.

6. Creativity goes a long way. The more original or interesting the concept the more likely we are to notice it.

7. We also accept a one page comic, provided it be in a montage type format.

8. In case it's not obvious, MAKE IT BADASS!

9. It has to be a new drawing, created for this contest.

10. No limit on submissions per participant (You are able to win more then one prize).

About the "rendering" rule- I'm assuming that this only applies to those people who pose ripped game models in Gmod or similar programs? 

I understand that this has led to a somewhat bad reputation for 3D work, but all my work is 3D and completely made from scratch with artistic intentions. "Rendering" is simply the term used for generating the final high-quality image. :)

So would I please be able to submit my 3D creations here? I do character modeling (from nothing, like I said- I have WIP proof pictures too). I'm not sure because the rule sounds like it's aimed just at the rip n' pose people but it says "renders", which is something involved with most 3D digital art work. 

This is an awesome looking group by the way! :D
