This guide has info on tc/ec rewards and submission requirement terms.
Note:  "c" can stand for TC or EC depending on the prompt.

Reward amounts

When submitting prompts or claims use this guide to figure out how much  you can claim. You can submit prompt art, or you can submit regular art/gift art you've made outside of prompts (general art).  When claiming TC or EC, you must always include a claim breakdown in your submissions! For example:

2 fullbody +4 c
2 familiars+2 c
basic bg  +4 c
----total 10c

 

Art Amounts
Currently there is no character limit for submissions.

  • Fullbody or mostly fullbody: 2c
  • Headshot/bust: 1c
  • Hatchling: 1c
  • Familiar: 1c
    - You must own the familiar for it to count
    - EXCEPT during an event with a familiar bonus -  where you can claim on certain familiars which are part of that event - even if you don't own them (ie. ghoworm, mothmin, phomish for hattowen)


  • Basic Background: 4c
  • Advanced Background:  8c 
    Advanced was the standard of the old background requirements!
    Read on below for the difference between basic & advanced background.

Art Bonuses

  • Thumbnails: 1c each
    Up to 4 thumbnails per submission (Unless the prompt requires more)
    (what are thumbnails?)
  • Moodboards: 1c
    (Only available for prompts that require it)

 

Writing Amounts

  • 100-150 words: 1c
    You may "bundle" short poetry to make the minimum wordcount!

  • 900-1100 words: 10c
    • +1c for each additional grown ranebopet with significant interaction
    • +1c for each additional hatchling or familiar with significant interaction

Art TERMS


Headshot/bust:
   Art of the character from the head or chest up.

Fullbody: (or mostly fullbody)  Most or All of the character's body is showing. (at least half)

Backgrounds:   Backgrounds are a scene/environment for the character to be in. (must be at least 500x500px or larger unless it's pixel art)
These can be a full scene bg or a platform bg. If a piece requires a background, you can do a basic or an advanced background. Some prompts require an advanced background. The piece's composition can be any shape (square, circle, swatch etc) Backgrounds can be basic or advanced and there are different coin amounts for each.

What doesn't count as a background...

  • a flat color, gradient, shape, preexisting image, (photo) abstract, or drop hadow. It must be an original artwork and have enough detail to suggest your character is in an environment.

A Basic Background...

  • has enough elements to feel like the character is in an environment but is otherwise basic

An Advanced Background has ONE or more of the following points...

  •  At least 3 background elements (ie. mountains, clouds, birds. ground/sky don't count)

  • Defined foreground/background/middle ground

  •  Enough detail or composition consideration to be considered advanced

Advanced backgrounds were the standard for the old background requirements.

(visual examples coming soon)

 

Writing

Writing is judged on word count and "Significant interaction" a significant interaction is enough sentences of interaction with something to be considered significant. This is objective, but your character glancing, waving at, or sharing a few words with another character is not enough to be considered a significant interaction, it must be greater.
