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 shown off here. 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.
:bulletgreen: Please mention in the artist description of your work if you have used a reference. If you haven't used any "No refs used" works fine.

: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.
:bulletred: We do not accept submissions that have been removed from our gallery and resubmitted.

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

This looks like such a great organization.

Did I miss the booth judging? I haven't seen any mention of them and thought that maybe mine was so bad that it hadn't even been considered. Do I need to remake it?

Hey guys, I've been part of the DARPG for some time and made this account as my new HARPG stable. I've got a few quick questions though. 

Is is there a point system like in DARPG? How do horses become champions etc? Are there such things as shows or events that the community participates in?

We don't enforce one here, but there are many registries that do. Check out our affiliates, there's a bunch of registries there for breed, colour, type, you name it!
