Group Info

Meet the Pyro!:…

Team Fortress 2 Wiki:

"Only two things are known for sure about the mysterious Pyro: he sets things on fire and he doesn't speak. In fact, only the part about setting things on fire is undisputed. Some believe his occasional rasping wheeze may be an attempt to communicate through a mouth obstructed by a filter and attached to lungs ravaged by constant exposure to his asbestos lined suit. Either way, he's a fearsome, inscrutable on-fire Frankenstein of a man. If he's even a man."

If anyone wants to just ask :)

Rules & FAQ

Welcome to #PyroLove, the group dedicated to the wonderful and enigmatic Pyro! He/She/It deserves just as much attention as all the others, so if you love the Pyro, this is the group for you!

Main Contest Page!
will hold links to current and past contest blogs and winners

:bulletblue: How do I join?
You click the "Join Group" button. [hurr..] Your request will be accepted immediately.

:bulletblue: How do I submit art?
One of two ways.
The first way is directly on the deviant page, there's a button titled "Submit to Group". Click that and type in the group[s] you want to submit to.
The second way is to come to :iconpyrolove:'s homepage and click "Submit Art". Place it in the folder that best fits, and if it doesn't fit any of them, notify one of the people in charge so they can make a new folder for it.

:bulletblue: On the subject of submitting art, what kind of art is allowed?
This is a general Pyro group, and we accept general Pyro images.

Our current folders include:
:bulletred: RED Pyro
:bulletblue: BLU Pyro
:bulletpurple: OC Pyro
:bulletpink: Sketches and Line art
:bulletblack: Written work
:bulletwhite: Cosplay
:bulletorange: GMOD
[There's also the Contest folder, but that one's self explanatory.]

We'll accept art if the main focus is Pyro.
Other classes can be depicted, by all means, but this is a Pyro group, after all!

Please, submit your work to the folder it best fits. PLEASE.

Also. Just because we are quite a relaxed, easy going group, doesn't mean there are no submission rules.

:bulletred: No Pyrographic[gettit? :iconhurrplz:] images, please. If people actually want to see that, feel free to spam those in charge with messages about it, and we'll do something. But until further notice, keep entries to a PG/PG-14 rating.

:bulletred: No extreme gore/violence/blood. Again, if you people want, say, a folder for gore-y things, tell us. But until then, limit it to flesh wounds.

:bulletred: Please, no pieces that clearly have no effort put into them. Have consideration for the people whose inboxes are being spammed by that.
Sketches, line art, and doodle dumps are acceptable; scraps, lone doodles, and mostly blank pages are not acceptable.

:bulletblue: Are there any rules on commenting?
This group doesn't have a "Give critique to get critique" rule or anything like that, we only ask that you be polite in your comments to fellow bored artists.

Art theft

:bulletred:If we ever catch anyone in the act of art theft, we'll hunt them down and gut them like a Cornish Game He–
Okay, just kidding.
We wouldn't do that, really.

We would, however, kick them from this group, blacklist them to our affiliates and other groups they're part of, and report them, because art theft is a horrible thing to do, and it deserves punishment.

But what is art theft? That's a hard question, because everybody has their own idea of it.
As a bottom line, art theft is;
:bulletgreen: Taking other people's art and claiming it as your own
:bulletgreen: Using someone's base without permission/proper ownership references
:bulletgreen: Stealing someone's idea, changing a few details, and claiming it as your own.

So please, don't do it! We love our members here, and we'd hate to see this kind of behaviour, because we would have to reciprocate exactly as I've laid out above.

Uh... okay... Anything else?

Follow basic rules of courtesy;
:bulletgreen: Ask before you use bases unless it says directly in the description.
:bulletgreen: Ideas are personal ideas. By all means you can take a separate idea away from something and credit the original artist for it, but you can't just take the whole idea, change a few words, and say it's something totally different.
:bulletgreen: There's tons of rules.
:bulletgreen: I don't know all of them.
:bulletgreen: So just use common sense and common courtesy. Y'all know how it goes– "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
Hey guys! So sorry for not getting to this last week (school and work suck), but as you know it is time for our Christmas/Holiday Contest!!!!

If you have any question just message me or the group ( I will be checking everyday from now on!)

The contest will end Jan 9 since I got to this a week late and the voting will last for the following weekend.

If anyone would like to donate prizes please read this journal…
We need a few people for each prize hopefully like 2 or 3 things, that would be awesome!
Also if your piece does win, then it is your responsibility to contact the person providing a prize.

After people donate I will list them here :)

:bulletblue:Prizes!!!!!: :bulletred:

10pts and a Line Art Commision from :iconpossessedbunnyplush:

Line Art Commission from :iconaren0817:

OC CHibi Commision rom :iconsturmtochter:
The contest has not officially started but it will in a week or so and it will be Christmas/Holiday themed for the end of the year! So get those ideas ready! Thanks to some suggestions from some members I'm going to try and be better about this upcoming contest.

So to get things started lets talk about prizes.
Everyone loves prizes.
If any of the members would be willing to donate points, commissions, badges, anything (within reason) to the contest it would be so helpful! If you would like to donate a prize, send a note to the group or myself (Aren0817) and I will compile a list of the prizes on this journal. Just tell me the prize, if you would like to remain anonymous, and what place. There is 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

It would be really great for a bunch of people to pitch in, I'm going to try and get something together by the weekend. The sooner we get prizes, the sooner people will want to join the next contest, and then it will be awesome. Super special awesome (yes I made that reference...)

That's all till next week guys!!

Am I the only one here who thinks that Pyro is just the most adorable thing?? :D:D

hey! me again. I'm in the middle of doing an art piece for the new contest that your hosting, but it's more of a pyro and scout theme, not as them kissing or a couple, just as friend. but will you allow it? because it has scout in it?

just wondering, because it has another character in it... also, it's a comic... so just wanted to ask, before I actually finish it, and get the news.

I don't what to give any spoilers, but the title of the comic is 'A Gift for Christmas'...  not giving anything else.

So concerns of my art piece are:

It has another member of the team in it
it's a comic
it's the red team

hope I get a reply soon.

[link] Well this got declined from the main group for being an "OC" even though it's just a slightly redesigned Pyrobot so it'd be more appreciated here
