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!

Group Submission Guidelines:

:bulletorange: These rules only apply to submitting art to this club. They do not dictate how you may play the game.

:bulletorange: We do not accept art using non-stock photography as reference. This means when you use a non-stock photo and copy it, not when you use it for research on how certain thinks look/move.

:bulletgreen: All forms of art (traditional / digital / photomanip etc) is accepted in this club's gallery. Please make sure to give credit to stock artists if you have used their work.
:bulletgreen: We accept all stable journals. If your journal is filled with premade lines for references that's okay, we just won't accept those particular refs to the gallery if you choose to submit them separately from the journal.
:bulletgreen: Stable journals need to have at least one horse in them before we can accept them into the club's gallery.
:bulletgreen: We do accept shows and contests. These shows must be traditional contests, so no breeding raffles or "Comment to enter and I'll RNG it" shows.
:bulletgreen: Ref sheets may have flipped lines to show the opposite side of the design, these lines MUST be the same.
:bulletgreen: We do accept traced art.

:bulletred: We do not accept premade linearts.
:bulletred: We do not accept adoptables.
:bulletred: No swearing or vulgarity please.
:bulletred: At this time we do not accept breed sheets.
:bulletred: We do not accept incomplete Your Horse Here's. Only once they are coloured will we accept them into the gallery.
:bulletred: We do not accept Breed Imports.
:bulletred: We do not accept Premade Backgrounds.
:bulletred: We do not accept breeding slot sales.

:bulletorange: Remember to have fun and not take it all too seriously, its just a game after all!

Hey, since when does this group accept traced art? And would a steampunk themed stable in an alternate universe be able to participate here?

Will there be any updates, etc. concerning the Horseball event? I put effort into my picture and it would be a pity if the event would just be cancelled without any excuse.

Can someone help me? I just bought this cutie sugarpill-mountain.deviantart.… But someone said that Dunalinos don't fit the hanoverian breed standart. so i want to change his design, bc i want him to be realistic. could someone tell me to what color i could make him... whatever... anything to get him fitting the breed standart?

I don't think you need to change his design necessarily, he could simply be a different color than the one listed. 
Possibly a chocolate palomino (he'd be drawn a bit more golden, though a clipped chocolate palomino certainly can look like this guy). Although on second look I see that hanoverian registries don't register palominos either.
Your closest bet without having to completely change his design would be a silver bay, albeit a lightly colored one (:

I should stop to buy without a closer look ahaha. XD

Do silver bays have dorsal stripes and green eyes? o: because he has them. XD
