Guest Artists

Artists who are chosen to join the Succubuns guest artist pool will have the opportunity to work directly with the Succubuns team to design official adoptables for Succubuns.com. Succubuns maintains an active pool of 10-12 guest artists, with residual benefits for guest artist alumni not currently in the pool.

Guest artists will enter the active pool for a four month long season. There will be three seasons a year: January-April, May-August, and September-December. Applications for new guest artists will open in the last month of each season. At the end of each season, the guest artist pool will be disbanded and reformed with 10-12 new and returning guest artists.

 

Guest Artist Responsibilities and Restrictions

  • Guest artists must pay 10% of all proceeds (after accounting for transaction fees) from official Succubuns sales back to Succubuns.com.
  • Guest artists must submit at least 2 Succubuns adoptables per month, with flexibility for extenuating circumstances.
  • Guest artists must sell at least 1 FTO-only Succubuns adoptable per season.
  • Guest artists must be willing to make any requested changes to their designs at any stage of completion.
  • Guest artists must consent to their completed designs being previewed by the Succubuns team before being put up for sale.
  • Guest artists may only design official Succubuns adoptables for public sale—they may not design official succubuns to keep for themselves or to gift to other users.
  • Guest artists may not claim “blind” adoptable sales that they have seen in the official guest artist channels within the first 24 hours of the sale.
  • Guest artists may not share information or discussion from the official guest artist channels.
  • In addition to following the Succubuns TOS and guest artist rules, guest artists are expected to set a good example for the community.

Guest Artist Benefits

  • Succubuns offers an audience of over 2,000 players and counting, with average sale prices of $50-$100 for bun designs and $200-$1,000 for doll designs.
  • Once a design has been approved, the Succubuns team will handle uploading it, advertising it, and managing the sale. Guest artists need only send an invoice to the purchaser and confirm when they have paid.
  • Guest artists may propose their own design ideas for up to 10-15 adoptables a month, working on their own schedule. 
  • Guest artists may occasionally have the option to be paid in Succubuns.com items or currency in exchange for creating free designs for players.
  • Guest artists may receive sneak peaks of unreleased traits and upcoming event themes.
  • Guest artists receive a special color role denoting them as such in the Succubuns Discord.
  • Guest artists may continue to take custom design commissions for succubun MYOs the same as any other player, and do not owe Succubuns.com a cut.
  • If a guest artist leaves the active pool, they receive guest artist alumnus benefits.

Alumnus Benefits

  • Alumni will receive a special color role marking them as such in the Succubuns Discord.
  • Alumni will be allowed to maintain an advertisement post for MYO succubun custom commissions in a special alumni channel.
  • Alumni will be given the opportunity to provide one-off official succubun designs for large events, even when not in the active pool.
  • Alumni who wish to be considered for the next season’s active pool do not need to submit an application or portfolio.

 

If you wish to apply to join the guest artist pool, please review the requirements below and prepare your portfolio. Application periods occur in April, August, and December, and will be announced in the news.
