What’s the difference between amateur and pro series?

There are two different types of series published on NeonMob, amateur and pro.

Amateur series are digital trading card series from NeonMob creators that are 100% free to collect and trade.

Just starting out as an artist or just new to NeonMob? Select the amateur option to create and submit a NeonMob series quickly and easily. You will get instant access to our creator publishing tools to upload your art directly to the NeonMob team for review. Anything you dream up could become a series as long as you follow a few simple guidelines: 

  • Your series must contain 15 or more unique cards

  • The art submitted is your original concept and creation (not images collected from the web or fan art of copyrighted properties)

  • Images are not pornographic, graphically violent, or similarly offensive

Amateur series don't earn royalties because only free packs are available to collect and no packs are sold. Therefore, amateur series are 100% free for collectors. NeonMob only publishes the very best of our amateur submissions and not every submission will be published.  

Pro series are digital trading card series from NeonMob creators available in both paid packs, which generate royalties for the series artist, and free packs.

Earn money by publishing your original art as trading cards on NeonMob! Publish your art as a pro series and collectors will be able to super charge their collection by purchasing paid packs of your series in addition to their daily free packs allotment. Artists receive royalties from all paid packs sold from their series.

Concepts for pro series are first submitted on the vote page for community review. If your concept receives a high number of votes from community members, you will receive access to our creator tools to upload your full series for final review. Once you submit your completed series, the NeonMob team will review and approve the series before adding it to our publication calendar. Although it may take a bit longer to publish than an amateur series, anyone can submit their concept for the opportunity to create a pro series and earn royalties from pack sales.

Why wasn't my amateur series published?

We created our amateur category so that artists new to NeonMob could easily publish a series introducing themselves to our collecting community. However, amateur series are still subject to review and there are a number of reasons why amateur series are not approved for publication.

  • The images submitted were not created by you. This can mean it's someone else's artwork, a copyrighted image, a screenshot from a video game, a meme, or an image or photograph taken from the web that you did not personally create.

  • The images submitted were fan art of a copyrighted series. NeonMob can only publish original concepts and creations and does not have the license to publish copyrighted concepts and fan art.

  • The images submitted were graphically violent, pornographic, or otherwise offensive.

  • The series has fewer than minimum 15 cards required for publication. All series must have at least 15 unique cards and a cover image to be considered for publication.

  • The series was submitted without a title, series description, or card descriptions.

  • Your submission did not meet our content standards for publication.

If your amateur series is not approved, you will receive a detailed explanation via email from our community team with instructions on amending your series and resubmitting (if applicable). Submissions containing copyrighted concepts or creation cannot be published and will be deleted from our system. NeonMob only publishes the very best of our amateur submissions and not every submission will be published.
