Long time no journal update! Hope everyone has been doing well and welcome to all the members that have joined since the last update.
Thanks to all your lovely artwork submissions, our "Original- Digital Art" (now renamed "Original- Digital Art 2014-2018 CLOSED) folder is full! I've made a new folder so from now on, please submit your original digital artworks to the "Original- Digital Art NEW" folder here: www.deviantart.com/anime-manga…
For people who currently have a submission pending for the old folder, please withdraw your submissions and resubmit to the new one. We're very sorry for this inconvenience, and we really appreciate your patience.
Please also be aware that there are specific subfolders within the main "Original Art" folder for artwork of other people's OCs, original comics and memes, so please submit accordingly.
An incorrect and subsequently rejected submission counts as your submission for the month.Being one of the biggest anime art groups on DA with a large number of members, we have a strict submission limit and a long waiting time for gallery approval so it is understandably frustrating to have your submission rejected. We don't want to reject your gallery submissions, just as you don't want to lose your monthly submission chance.
You can avoid this by SUBMITTING TO THE CORRECT FOLDER! It makes it so much easier for us to check and accept gallery submissions, and it makes you all happier too because submissions will get through faster.
There are some very common mistakes occurring that are leading to people forfeiting their monthly submission, so here are some specific reminders:
Friends and commissioners' characters go in the "Original- Friends and Other Deviants' Characters" folder.
Fan characters go in their respective Fan Art folders.
Vocaloid and UTAU characters go in the "Fan Art- Video Games, TV, Movies, Other" folder.
Video game and visual novel characters go in the "Fan Art- Video Games, TV, Movies, Other" folder.
Every folder in the gallery has a description on the side that explains what can and can't go in the folder.
We also have many resources available to help you:
