What is this place?
Hetherev is an art group in which you create a story by dropping one of your precious OCs head-first into our world. Advance this story by completing the different challenges posed by the different parts of the world. They'll meet friends, foes, and more along the way! You can also submit general artwork or gifts for other members. There are fun Art Jams, Character Asks, and even Roleplay to be found here in Hetherev.

Introducing, the brand new point system!

What are points?
Points are a way to tally up your progress within Hetherev. At present there are no particular rewards for collecting points, but it is something that we may implement in the future. For now, just think of points like a scoreboard; a way to keep track of your characters’ progress within the world of Heth.

How do I earn points?
By drawing! That’s all there is too it. Just about every drawing you create, with the exception of reference sheets, will apply towards your overall point count. Different kinds of artworks are worth different amounts of points. Whereas challenges are worth the highest number of points, things like jams and sketch dumps will be worth less points.

Which artworks qualify for points?
In order for your art to qualify for points, they MUST be submitted to the group officially. We cannot allow artworks hosted exclusively on other websites to count towards your total. Please read the guideline to make sure your artwork qualifies for points!

Please note that admins and mods have the authority to determine how many points your artwork is worth and deviate away from what this chart says. If we think it is worth more, we will let you know and keep record of it. Same thing goes if it is worth less!

:bulletblue: Challenges (Arrival-Mount): 10 Points
:bulletblue: Challenges (Stages 3+): 15 Points
:bulletblue: Multiple-part Challenges: 10/15 point for each page that has good backgrounds, 5/7 points for pages that lack backgrounds!
:bulletblue: Interactions/General*: 5 Points
:bulletblue: Jams/Sketch Challenges/General*: 3 Points
:bulletblue: Sketch Dumps: 1 Point per drawing
:bulletblue: Reference Sheets: 0 Points

Challenges and Jams/Sketch Challenges:  Same criteria as submitting normally. Sketch challenges must feature your character! For challenges with multiple parts we are granting full points under the condition that each page has good backgrounds, etc. For example, if a challenge featuring a comic has mostly dialogue and minimal backgrounds, that particular part of the challenge will only be worth 5/8 points.

*General: If your artwork doesn't fall into interactions or challenges and belongs in the General folder, then you get points for it! However! If the artwork is just as detailed as a traditional challenge is, it gets 5 points instead of 3. It isn't worth as much as challenges simply to encourage you to actually complete challenges.

Interactions: Must be either fully colored, or a very refined sketch, simple backgrounds are okay. They don’t have to be the level that challenges are but must be presentable!

Sketch Dumps: Each sketch must be readable and more or less presentable. For every readable drawing of your own character, be it an interaction or standalone drawing, you get 1 point. If you are unsure about whether or not your submission qualifies for points, feel free to send us a note and ask!

Reference sheets: Do not get any points since they are required to start submitting anything!

Please note that artwork that was done exclusively of other characters will not count toward your character’s point total! Points are a way to track individual character progress, not your total sum of artworks.

Logging your points
In order for administrators to keep track of everyone’s points, we’re implementing a new rule that requires members to record ALL artwork for respective characters in their reference sheet descriptions. It is 100% your responsibility to record all your drawings in the reference sheet description, there are simply too many members for admins to keep track of everyone! This will become especially useful for us if we start applying rewards based on your point count.

The following format is recommended, but so long as it’s easy to read we’re okay with it! Here's an active example

That’s it for now! Changes may be made in the future in which case we’ll update you all once more. Have fun!

Hello, Hvaal here.
I recentely deactivated my old account for various reasons, but I won't rejoin this time because... let's be honest, I wasn't active and I'm sure I'm sure I'm not going to be this time either.

I wish you all to have fun though.

ampere-sand Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
uh, i just want to ask, is this group still active..? i would like to know that before i join.
MadMeeper Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014  Student Filmographer
Yep! We're still going, if not slowly. Finals and the holidays are probably keeping people from uploading things. There's definitely still an active community though!

Is there any more info relating to Acliba by any chance? ;v; (I was going to post this in the Aspik City Journal, but I wasn't sure whether it'd show up in your inboxes) 
ive got a couple questions: 
Is it similar technology wise to Aspik?
If it's underground, how is it lit? (is there any natural light at all?) 
Are there any 'rules' to staying there? As in, is it totally lawless, or are their factions running the place in order to maintain some sort of stability? 
SORRY to bombard you with questions, it's just there isn't a lot to go on in the small paragraph you've written up ;U; ;;;;;

Those little hidden away nooks and crannies of Hetherev are open to your own interpretation! :3
