Group Info

#Star-Dock is a group dedicated to artwork about Sci-Fi starships. We only showcase Sci-Fi examples, NOT real life rockets or other space faring craft in the real world. This is a common interest group more focused on networking, and sharing ideas other than self promotion. We hope to inspire and help the collaborative process between members.

Membership and Submissions

To Become A Member

- You must have completed examples of Sci-Fi Starships based artwork in your gallery, and be willing to contribute them to the group. No WIPs!

Membership Rules

- Use common sense at all times.

- Be respectful of fellow members, even if disagreeing or critiquing their work.

- Never use other peoples artwork without the permission or proper citation needed.

To Submit

- Any artwork where a Sci-Fi example of a Starship is being showcased will be accepted. This can be part of a scene, or just the ship itself (or multiple ships, etc).

- The focus of this group is mostly on external shots, but some interior shots are allowed! Please don't abuse.

- No in-game screenshots of Sci-Fi games. Please submit either original work or compositions.

- Any medium is accepted, from traditional art to 3D modeling.

- If it is a 3D piece, please do not submit an excessive number of renders of the same work. Pick the best one or submit a couple of pictures form different angles otherwise the Admin staff will choose for you and deny the rest. If more than subtle modifications to a piece have been made, it is not considered a multiple of the previous work and the same rule above applies.

- Quality of work is not "graded" per say, but remember the no WIP (work in progress) rule. Submissions need to have the "look" of completed works, and not 10 minute sketches or workups. Master artists can of course submit their 10 minute sketches so we can drool over them :)

- Submissions must not contain any pornography or have the "Adult" flag in their deviation file.
Hello Everyone,

I have been gone quite a long time from the Deviant Art community, and specifically from Star-Dock...and a huge thanks goes out to Marian for keeping the thing going.  Everyone has had points where they drift away from certain things, include art, and the "real world" seems intent on keeping it that way.  I just wanted to say that the quality of submissions here are at an all time high, but I think we (and that is the royal "we" most likely) could do better for the group.  A few points:

- The reason that submissions are expiring is because I simply was not around to pick up the slack.  Marian is doing a phenomenal job, but he is just one person.  I will attempt to keep on top of submissions in the future, so if you had something expire, please resubmit it!

- We need to rethink our groups, and how we organize the submissions.  One reason of a group like this is to find inspiration from other people's artwork.  That is much more difficult if we do not have an effective system to categorize what we are trying to do here.  While under other multi-purpose groups "Starships" would just be one of the categories...but this is a much more specialized group.  We will be doing some hard thinking about how to best organize the material here.  Please stay tuned.

-  We never want Star-Dock to become a catch all "Everything" group.  This is NOT a Sci-Fi only is a Sci-Fi spaceship group.

- Contests and networking opportunities.  We want to do this.  We ARE going to do this...any suggestions would be great.

- Actually ANY suggestions about anything would be fantastic.  We want this to be one of the premiere groups on Deviant Art eventually...we just need to refocus a little.

Let me know if there is anything you guys wish us to consider, and I will post more info when we come to some decisions.

Hello, I am working on a freeware space RTS game and I'm looking for artists of any type (modelers, designers, texture and background artists, etc.). No need for original content, recreating ships from your favourite anything will do!

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

Hi there, I wonder if you could confirm if you have seen my submission waiting for approval? I have submitted it (twice now) but it seems that it's not being approved or declined by the group - it just expires. I suspect you have not seen the submission request? Thanks.
