Welcome to HARPG!

Harper by Horsepoint
:star: This is the official Deviantart community
for the Horse-Art Role Play Game :star:

A fun Art-based game, HARPG encourages creativity and the on-going practice of one's art. Here in this group we encourage practicing equine art, and horses you create can be registered here for all to see. Roleplaying horses is also a good break to get away from commissions, life or school.

We are open to, and have members of, all levels of art; from beginners, to teachers and even published illustrators. We accept all forms of HARPG-related art, including model horses, digital work, traditional pieces and photo-manipulations.

This is also a wonderful place to meet and find other equine artists/lovers on Deviantart.

Due to the success of our group, a great many sister-groups have blossomed, all ranging from wolves and cats, to show dogs and fantasy, and even farm animals and camels!

Our very baseline rule is, "It doesn't exist until you draw it." So, let your dreams take wing!

I have been a member since 2010 and I just logged on to start my HARPG career again and I'm dumbfounded at all of the new...nonrules! I think what you guys do to run the game is amazing, but I feel old and confused! Sweating a little...

I'm a 2010 player too! :la:  any questions just holler, we're here to help. :)

So if I clean up my stables and kind of revamp everything, I do not need to send it in or register anything? I'm just playing the game having fun? :)
MissDudette Featured By Owner 6 days ago
Yeah pretty much!  To like officially be part of the group, you can submit your stable and horses to the gallery folders. :) the rules like with names, or no tracing, don't exist anymore. I think the only hard line rule we still have is no linearts. :)
