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.

As most of you guys know, we host contest after contest after contest! This time we thought we should ask you guys about ideas, sense it's you who is drawing for these contests! Always more fun if you get to draw what you want and get prizes for it. ;)

Our ideas are these, to get you guys going! Feel free to talk about these suggestions, what you like and don't for an example. And if you got an idea of your own, please do tell!
A. Badass eating or drinking
B. Badass and their equally badass steed.
C. Badass duel (one vs one in a formal arrangement)
D. Western theme

All of these will work with OC or fanart.
