Group Info

Welcome to ForTheGModders - your source for all things GMod.

:target: We would be greatly appreciated if you would read the entire group info before you begin submitting your work into our galleries. :target:

ABOUT

The aim of ForTheGModders, for the longest time, is to show a variety of GMod works, be it TF2, Pokemon, Mass Effect, Batman, MLP, you name it, we probably have it. If all else fails, we have an "Others" folder for all of your...others-y needs. At the same time, we also aim to have quality within our galleries, whilst still giving amateur artists a chance to shine without making anybody else's eyes bleed.
If you are sensitive to or simply cannot take criticism towards your work, this is not the group for you. Not everything that is sent to us will be accepted due to the quality standards set by both the co-founders AND our kind members.
So, sick of the same old 5-minute lolposes? Then this could well be the place for you.

SUBMITTING

For most of the time that FTG has been running, we have had quality standards running in the group, which are run by both the co-founders and our wonderful community- the old and the new members who have filled our galleries with their awesome work (forthegmodders.deviantart.com/… is where the magic begun~). With this in mind...

:bulletred: We won't accept everything willy-nilly; we will accept work that has been done to an "average" level. So, you don't need to be a GMod master, but you have to put some effort in or we won't accept. Check our gallery for examples of quality we generally accept. :bulletred:
There is a guide to posing, submitting and editing, which you can find right here: forthegmodders.deviantart.com/…

If you follow a good selection of these, you'll have a good chance of having your work accepted. It's not hard -just put some backbone into your work and you're good to go.

If you feel your deviation was wrongly denied, need extra help, or have ideas on how FTG can improve, feel free to leave a note with us or leave a comment on your submission.

:bulletred: Source Film Maker submissions are NOT allowed! This is GMod, not SFM!

Disclaimer: No, we are never going to drop standards altogether unless there is an amazingly good reason to do it; it would just make us another regular GMod group and we have enough of them. Standards were introduced because the majority of our members WANT these standards so that they don't get random shit being posted in their inbox's every day. It is very annoying and very boring to delete.

Thank you, to those who've submitted any of their work into 'Tutorials', when they weren't tutorials.

You've made it that much easier to decline them.

Admins

Just so EVERYTHING is clear. CONTRIBUTORS ARE NOT ADMINS! Anyone in the Founder and Co-Founder slots are admins.

Contributors are the much-loved veterans of the group who regularly submit brilliant work to the group.
To become a contributor, you need to do...well, that.
(You don't have to post every day or every week, but it's better if you don't become inactive for long periods of time).

You can either wait for somebody to promote you, or you can ask us.
Becoming a contributor is NOT easy, so don't be offended if we say no to your request. Just keep trying. The admins are happy to help out.

When we decline work, we wait for the artist to ask why it was declined, then we tell them.

The thing is, recently we've been understaffed, half of our members are inactive, the other  half aren't as active as we want to be. This is why there has been very little feed as of late. I don't know if it says 'voting expired' when none of us vote, but we usually never decline without telling the artist why, granted they ASK for the reason.

Fair enough. Sorry for the rude remarks and comments I made. I've had some bad experiences with the people in charge of submissions of this group before (a few years ago when I was starting out. Was using a different account then my current one I use now.)

Taking one glimpse at your gallery, I could say most likely because you use no lighting whatsoever, your posing is awkward, and your screenshot quality is below average. Put the graphics settings higher, especially anti-ailiasing, because there are a lot of jaggy lines in your screenshots. Also, take a look at a lighting tutorial. I think you can find one in our Tutorial folder. Hope this helped.

Suit yourself. This group appreciates the quality of Gmod art, and no one asked you to assimilate to our standards.

There are plenty of other groups you can use to dump your art for extra views, but here we actually value EFFORT. Something that your images lack.

But hey, glad you had fun.

I might come back to doing Gmod stuff. I now have a computer of much higher superiority compared to my old rig, and most importantly, I've got new tools to play with.

It would be fun to get back into this.

I am apparently incapable of submitting a pose at the moment, for whatever reason.

Just get a "there was an error submitting to one of your groups" message.
