There is a Shards Calculator that can be found HERE! Make sure to copy it to use it!



Any art/writing submissions (Prompts, Claims) that fit into the scoring standards have to use the Shards Calculator and need to have the breakdown added into the comments of the submission.
The breakdown is needed to help out the mods to serve as a reference and check if everything is alright. It also helps with rolling Jellbean drops, if applicable.
The breakdown is usually found on the right side of the Shards Calculator

If you are looking for (MYO) design submissions instead, check here.

Note: Masterlist references do not count toward Shard claims!

non-Applicable techniques

Some techniques do not count towards Shard scoring and will be ignored during scoring.


Stamping is the use of brushes that stamp whole elements, like whole trees, leaves etc. Those elements won't count towards background elements.
You are allowed to use a leaf brush to create and build up a tree, but you are not allowed to use the leaves as indivudual elements!


Writing Scoring

WriTing Standards 

Every literature has to

  • be written in english
  • have atleast 100 words to count

Characters have to have somekind of significant or meaningful interaction to count, that means they have to

  • have enough sentences of interaction to count as significant
  • A character bumping into a Jellhead or waving/following around is not enough of an interaction
  • The interaction has to have somewhat of an effect inside the literature
There is a Shards Calculator that can be found HERE! Make sure to copy it to use it!


Depending on the amount of words you have, you get shards rewarded!

  • Per 100 Words - 1 Shards
  • Per 500 Words - + 2 Shards
    >For every 500th word, you get an additional 2 Shards as a bonus!


  • Additional JellHead with significant interaction + 1 Shard
  • Additional Mini-JellHead with significant interaction + 1 Shard
  • Additional JellBean with significant interaction + 1 Shard



Additional Bonuses

Depending on Character or Art/Literature, you can earn yourself a bit of a bonus!

  • JellHead = Official Mascot - + 1 Shard
  • JellHead = owned by someone else - + 2 Shards
    Note: This does not apply to Mascots!
  • Performance Bonus - + 4 Shards
    >Art/Animation that plays synced to Audio (on beat, added sound like footstepts etc)
    >Literature that has been performed (reading)
    >examples: Animation meme, AMV/PMV, Audio Storytelling, Poem/lyric reading etc.

Lucky Petals

When adding Lucky Petals as an Add-on to your claim, you can raise your luck on encountering JellBean from JellHeads that are part of your submission.

JellBean Encounter Note:
When using a Lucky Petal on art, it will be used on either 1 single JellHead or a whole piece (including all JellHeads)
If the art is a collection of seperate art works, the Luck will only be applied on 1 JellHead with the highest encounter chance.
>Applied to only one JellHead with the highest chance
 --Collection of multiple artworks of the same or other JellHead ("Doodlepages")

>Applied to all JellHeads shown
--Artwork with multiple JellHeads acting in the same scene (Scene, Comic)



JellBean Spawns


Depending on submission, you have a chance of encountering a JellBean or two of the displayed JellHeads!
Your chance could be raised through quality and effort of your submission, but also the usage of Lucky Petals!

The chances and rates are unknown.
