Important Information

If you want a critique - submit it to the appropriate folder and tell us what you want help with.

Here is how the submission process works:

:bulletyellow: A person (you) makes a poster/animation

:bulletyellow: The person (you) submit poster/animation to poster/animation submissions (don't put posters in animation submissions... obviously.)

:bulletyellow: We look at the poster/animation.

One of two things could happen at this point;

We find that we haven't really touch on the elements of the person's (your) poster that could use fixing.

:bulletgreen: If we see that the poster/animation has elements that hasn't been critiqued on previously,

:bulletgreen: We make a critique image to help the person (you)

:bulletgreen: We submit the critique to the Poster Critiques/Animations Critique folder

:bulletgreen: We tell the person (you) that the critique is in the critique folder

:bulletgreen: We accept the submission

:bulletgreen: We reference the person's (your) poster, in the poster critique, the person's (your) submission goes into the Poster Submissions folder.


We find that the elements that need fixing in the submission has already been covered thoroughly.

:bulletred: If we see that the poster/animation has elements that we have gone over multiple times,

:bulletred: We explain the elements that could use fixing in the comments of the person's (your) submission.

:bulletred: We link the person (you) to the resources/tutorials/critiques that best fit your poster.

:bulletred: We deny the person's (your) submission.

(Please remember that submission denial is not based on the overall quality of the poster/animation, just that whatever could be better has already been talked about.)

A more in-depth description is found here:

(Or rather, will be found here once we make one)

We have a Discord server! Come and join!

The soft click of the camera, a flash of light and a moment in time captured forever. Maybe digitally, maybe on film, the medium is never as important as the memory or moment caught. A group of people, a sunset, or even a fish jumping out of the water, a photograph is a way to feel the emotion and context of that exact moment. Celebrate that, on this picturesque Photography Day! (August 19)

History of Photography Day

The photograph originally was made by Nicéphore Niépce, using silver chloride coating a piece of paper. However, the photo would eventually turn fully dark as he knew no way to remove the silver chloride from the paper to preserve the photo. Photographs got better and better over the years, first with the ‘still camera’, and the ability to take a picture that way. Think the old west in America, and that camera’s differences to the ones of World War 2, then compare them to modern cameras. The major jumps in technology affected photography as much as any other facet of life around the world. With Kodak, Canon and so many other brands out there, it was of no surprise when the market of photography got such a jump, even more so with the military and surveillance capabilities offered as cameras got better, lighter and more easily used. Yet for all the innovation and creativity, science and even the large amount of art that occurs in the photography realm, not much can beat the simple pleasure of snapping photos and developing your frames to enjoy the integrity of the photos.

Pretty neat, ey?

Well, to celebrate this day, since SFM art is like photography, I am holding a contest.

What is this contest?

Well my good chum, the rules are simple:

:bulletgreen: Create an art piece in SFM using 1 pony model model of your choice.  (Please no distracting OC's)
:bulletgreen: you can post edit the piece anyway you want, as long as the original render was done in SFM.
:bulletgreen: The piece must include a good use of landscape in your scene build. The theme being chosen is landscape based photography. (examples… )
:bulletgreen: The landscape itself can be the focal point of the image, or the pony, as long as both are included!
:bulletgreen: Submit your entry by tagging :iconequestrian-academy: and :iconyaasho: when you upload it to DeviantArt. Do NOT submit it to the group

The winner will receive 1 month of core membership!!!  

So yeah! That's pretty much it. You're free to create whatever landscape you like!

Questions? Note :iconyaasho:

The Deadline is Friday, August 26.

Good Luck!

"Patience is the key to success."

Hello, I want to publish my last animation in "Animation Critiques" folder .... but I do not understand how to do .... The I sent the "Submit Art" function. Okay?
QuilloManar Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2017  Hobbyist Filmographer
Make a thumbnail image of the animation to upload to DA, then use that image to link to your animation and post that to the animation submissions folder.

I'll look over it when I have some time.

A question, if you may. I was wondering if one is allowed to submit art that wasn't specifically created for the Academy. Which is to say, art that one has made in the past. Because I do have several pieces which I would like some in-depth analysis of. ^^

You can submit anything you want assistance with, no matter how old!
