Hello members!

Thanks to an user, I discovered only now that members of affiliate couldn't submit to our group except for the featured folder, making the whole affiliation compeltely pointless. I have no idea for how long things used to be set this way but I now fixed it!

Members of affiliate can now submit to all the folders, one submission a week for each folder. It is mandatory that the submissions follow the same rules and exceptions as for our members ( scan/picture quality, submitted in the correct folder, made with pencils or crayons etc. )

With that said, have a nice Sunday!

:bulletblue: Create a good capture Poor quality captures or scans which do not display the art to its true potential will be rejected.
If you're struggling to create a good capture then the following tutorial will be helpful.
Taking Pictures of Your Art 1 by lantairvlea

:bulletblue: Make sure your submission goes into the right folder! If you're not sure which folder your piece of art goes in to, ask any member of the administration via note or comment; add a link of your deviation. Submitting to the wrong folder is the most common cause for rejection.
:bulletblue: Your submission must have very little digital editing. Custom watermarks are allowed.
:bulletblue: You may submit 1-3 deviations per week; make sure they're your strongest works!
:bulletblue: Everybody who joins is accepted You don't need to thank us.
:bulletblue: If your artwork contains nudity, please mark it mature content.
Feel free to suggest favourites from galleries of the group's artists that you admire. Only 3 per week please!
Of course! :D As long as you're a TRADITIONAL ART group!
Updated rules are always in our blog. Please read both this faq for basic things and our blog for everything else.

Question, if I may: What is Your attitude towards drawings, that were made with pencils, then coloured in Photoshop? Accept or Decline?

Update seconds later: Also, something weird happened just seconds ago: I submitted 4 deviations for evaluations, yet then I got the message that the limit is 2 per week. Can somebody tell me how did that happen?
DrClosure Featured By Owner May 30, 2017  Professional General Artist
Hello, sorry for the very late reply here:

the drawings are fine if colored in photoshop, as long as the pencil/pastel/charcoal is still predominant int he final composition. those drawings need to be submitted onthe mixed media folder, consider the computer as just another tool like acrylics, watercolours or ink.

for the submission in general, there's a 2 per week for each folder, it's not a global limit!
OldSketch Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2017
I can't submit any art. I'd like to know when it'll be reopened.
