Not science fiction!

Pure abstract (no sci-fi connotations)
Strictly Surreal (no sc-fi connotations)
Fantasy without sci-fi
Horror without sci-fi
A shirt design very similar to one already added.

A shirt design (or art) which doesn’t fit our focus here
Nothing to do with sci-fi
Based on media which isn’t really sci fi
Based on media which may be sci-fi but you didn’t list your source
Science without the fiction
Inappropriate for public viewing and it doesn’t have the filter
Or, we believe it’s taken directly from a copyrighted source.

No porn/ no obscenity (tasteful nudity ok and acceptance will be at the discretion of the hosts but again, use the filter where appropriate.)
Bryce/3D pilots please note: just because it’s Bryce or 3D software doesn’t automatically classify it as Sci Fi. The image must be more than a pretty pattern, it must at least suggest a Sci Fi story or scenario!
Important: If your art refers to a game, movie, novel or TV show PLEASE LIST THE TITLE! Some, like Star Trek, are obvious to nearly everyone; others not so much. And just because you’ve based your artwork on a game, comic or tv show, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s science fiction! It’s no reflection on your work; but if we don’t recognize your reference – or we don’t think it’s really sci-fi – it will be likely rejected.
This is a group for everybody on the Bubble: if your work is “not safe for public viewing” use the filter! If we think other members may be offended and it has no filter, it will likely be rejected.
Hosts will have the final say. That’s what hosts are for. But we’re always open to negotiation. If your work is rejected and you disagree with that decision, please feel free to write! Questions? Don’t hesitate to ask. In the meantime, we invite you to blind us with your speculative visions, science fiction stories, inter-stellar dramas, far-flung characters and settings — whether they’re inspired by the Greats or purely your Originals!
(We are pretty easy here… really! One rule of thumb – - if you’re a real Sci-fi fan, you know it when you see it!)
The moderators are not always right, but someone has to make the tough decisions.
Remember RB Etiquette! In accord with Starfleet Regulations, anybody in defiance could be beamed from the ship… this mission is a peaceful one! Play Nice.
That’s it! Now, go boldly where no one’s gone before!
