WHAT IS A NINTENDO GIRL?
It is a female character that appeared in a series of games owned by Nintendo and/or its subsidiary companies (i.e.: HAL Laboratories, Intelligent Systems). It usually includes (but is not limited to) series like Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Kirby and Pokémon.
Female characters appearing in series created by third-party developers are not eligible to be featured on Nintendo-Girls (i.e.: Rare, Square-Enix, Sega), no matter if their games were released on a Nintendo console or not.
This group is all about fun and respect. So please treat others as such. Any harassment will be dealt with by the admins.
If you want to become a member, just press "Join our Group" on top of the page". You will be automatically accepted in the group.
If you wish to contact us, please send us a Note! Your message might go unnoticed if you simply post on the front page.
If you wish to be affiliates with Nintendo-Girls, press the "Affiliate" button on top of our page! We will only accept affiliates that are relevant to our group.
Our submission system is based on votes by the admins and contributors: not all users are online at the same time, so expect a few hours before your submissions get in.
Please keep it to your best works. If we judge your work doesn't meet our quality standards, it will not be accepted.
Your submissions are limited to one artwork per day and/or one work of literature per week.
Please take care to submit your submission to the correct folder. If your artwork contains only one Nintendo girl, regardless of side characters, it goes in her respective folder. Artwork that contains more than one Nintendo girl goes into the "Group Pictures" folder. Don't forget that everything submitted to the wrong folder will be rejected.
The folders for mature artwork, comics and OCs override the rules for the "Group Pictures" folder.
Only the first page of a comic series or story is accepted. This is to avoid imminent clutter and disorganization.
The administrators have the final word. If your submissions get rejected, do not submit them again. If we see you try to willingly submit deviations that were rejected before, we might end up sanctioning you with a ban.
If the deviation you have submitted is considered high quality by the staff, it will be included in the Featured folder, reserved for the best artwork out there.
We accept these types of media:
Drawings (Fanart): traditional/digital illustrations, group pictures, comic pages;
Literature (Fanfiction): one-shots, multi-chapters, poems, proses;
Photography: crafts and cosplay.
We will accept:
General art: any artwork or work of literature, aimed at all audiences, that contains at least one Nintendo girl as a central character. This is, after all, the main focus of this group.
Mature art: includes every mature subject matter, except for fetishes. Please note that distasteful artwork, material that borderlines pornography and submissions that are not properly labelled as "Mature content" will be turned down (see below for more details on mature artwork).
Fan characters: they're tolerated but not encouraged. Please either mention or make it clear that it is Nintendo inspired, or else we might decline it for lack of relevance. Please note that only a total of three submissions for the same fan character are allowed.
We will decline:
Half-assed artwork: anything that looks like it was drawn in 5 minutes. We value to effort given to a picture, so please show your dedication in your work!
Bad editing/medium: blurry or dark pictures taken with a webcam, illustrations done on lined paper, to cite common examples.
Hard-to-read, incomplete or short literature: any work of literature that has bad spelling/grammar (including chatspeak), punctuation, and paragraph spacing.
Incomplete artwork/Works in progress: Please submit your work only if you deem it completed (example: a lineart piece you don't intend on colouring later is OK).
Official works/Edits/Tracing: Everything you haven't drawn YOURSELF, including official art (either edited or not), traced pictures, game sprites, game/cartoon screenshots, and drawings making heavy use of bases, will be turned down instantly.
Pornographic art: Even though we have a Mature folder, works that are judged too close to hardcore porn or hentai won't be admitted. This includes explicit sexual body positions, disproportionate body parts (such as breasts), as well as everything else mentioned in DeviantART's Terms Of Services.
Fetish art: mature content or not, all fetishes are declined. If you don't know what a fetish is, then you probably don't have to worry about it.
Pokémon: only the Pokémon non-human characters, including their Gijinka forms. Otherwise, all humans characters are welcome.
Other franchises: anything not originating from Nintendo. Please refer to the very first point of this rules list for more details.
Hateful art: Artwork or literature that is intended to degrade Nintendo girls and/or their fans.
Enjoy your time here at Nintendo-Girls. And remember the most important rule: HAVE FUN!
