:faint: In 24 hours team Playing With Fire raised $8,075 dollars for Children's Hospitals!  It was an amazing thing to be a part of.  Plus, seeing I lowered the target goal for my personal channel, my hair is now dyed pink.  :O_o:

We had a lot of help from developers, celebrities, it was crazy!  We had so much fun doing it, that my team will join the official Extra Life event on November 7th! :dance:

So if you're a gamer, or interested in supporting charities, or want to watch a kick ass variety show, go here:…

Welcome To Hardcore Gamers!!!

Irk the Tamer and Sima by Scruffy-StevieArdent by R-no71Zelda t-shirt design by bluespartan10Hardcore SNES Shirt Design by bluespartan10Sonic by gureidusonRequiescat in pace...bastardo by S-SeithTogether at last. by bluespartan10Shitty Games Ruin Lives by bluespartan10

This group is for everyone that is as obsessed with video games as we are!! If you're like us, your room is essentially a shrine for your passion for video games and you have pages upon pages of your artwork based on video games plastered all over. This group, my gaming brothers and sisters, IS FOR YOU! I may be the founder, but I want you to take this group and transform it into gaming awesomeness :D

As we are artists here, let's help one another in improving our skill sets. We care about our respective crafts, and you should too!

Submission Guidelines:

1.) Please respect deviantArt's ToS. It's there for a reason. This means: no blatantly pornographic images. Submissions with a Mature filter are fine, as are portrayals of characters in sexy underthings and classy come-hither poses. Just no actual (or implied) boinking and all will be well. Use those filters wisely - you have to be 13 to use this site, so don't post anything you wouldn't want your 12-year-old looking at.

2.) All gaming-related art is welcome. Photography, 3D art, paintings/drawings (digital AND traditional), animations, pixel art, sculptures… heck, we accept cosplay. The point is that any medium is welcome here - we hold no bias.

3.) Skill level isn't important here: anyone from beginner to professional is welcome. However - please don't just scribble something in 2 seconds and submit it, make it at least LOOK like you put effort into it. If it's a practice sketch, or a drawing on a piece of lined or grid paper, please submit it to the "For sketches and beginners" folder. Also, PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT STANDARD PHOTOS OF MERCHANDISE. Again, we are artists, and as such we put care in our creations. Let that show in your work. If you want critiques on your piece, write that in your description so others can help you.

4.) Please limit your submissions to 3 per week - we want to give other's artwork a chance to shine in the Featured folder.

5.) You can post advertisements, promotional content, and discussion topics in the journal feed on this homepage. For the most part we do not have any sort of general restrictions on what is posted. HOWEVER, please make a point to put detailed and worthwhile content into the feed, so as to not clutter it with a bunch of little bullet posts with URLs taking people all over the place.

6.) As if it wasn't made clear from other statements, let's say it now: please respect other artists and their works. I know it's the internet and all, but leave the trolling and elitism at the door. It makes everyone's lives easier.

Keep in mind, we're here FOR YOU. We will remain objective in our decision-making to ensure you are treated fairly. If you're having a problem with the group, don't hesitate to contact one of our lovely contributors to get it sorted out. (Keep in mind though, we won't babysit. True concerns and complaints will be handled accordingly.)

If your submission is denied, we will give you a reason that will correspond with the above guidelines - no more, no less.

semilaiska Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it just kinda seems like hardcore for babies with all the pixel shit and let´s players. i´m calling this place a nest for casuals
bluespartan10 Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Professional Interface Designer
We don't define "Hardcore" based on the game related art content itself, rather the devotion and passion that members display for the game franchises they love. 

With that said though, out of the hundreds of images we see submitted per month, very few of our members post full on let's play related content. Also, we only rarely see art based on games that are truly considered "casual gamer only", like mobile games and stuff.

As for pixel art or icons, as long as their work falls under either the fair use clause, or isn't just a blatant rip from a sprite game (which we try to regulate as much as we can), it's not our place as admins to say whether that style of work should be defined as hardcore. Sure, me and my top contributors are professional artists, and certain types of pixel art and DA stamps are extremely easy to make, but that doesn't diminish the overall status of members being honest gamers.

P.S. If you see submissions that are in fact blatant game rips/plagiarism, let us know which ones and we'll remove them. With so many submissions coming in they do slip through the cracks sometimes.

My submissions haven't been accepted lately.
bluespartan10 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
We apologize for the wait, there's been an extraordinary amount of submissions recently and yours were buried in them. We have caught up as of today. However I do see you submitted your work to the playstation folder. Can you resubmit them to the hardcore memes folder? We have a rule that unless it's a DA stamp, we need work that was not photographed and/or illustrated by the submitter to put it in the memes folder. If this kind of work was submitted into other folders, it was done in error and we apologize for the confusion.

Already taken care of!
