Once a month we will choose an Aus-Art member (you can also send us a note and suggest a member for feature, but not yourself) and feature them here as our Current Favourite Artist.



CRITERIA FOR SUBMITTING WORK

Currently we are allowing one (1) submission per person per day, and all submissions will be voted on by the Admins of this Group. :star: We want your BEST work!! :star:

Basically, we want the work you'd put it in your Featured folder!

We dont expect everyone to be a professional artist but there needs to be some effort to create something artistic. This is an artistic website and an artistic group. Please submit ART only. We realise all of you have varying degrees of talent and we don't want to discourage anyone from doing what they love, but acceptance into the Aus-Art Galleries will be left up to the Admin's discretion.

When submitting, please select the category you have your deviation under; for example, if you have listed it as a Digital Painting, don't submit it to Digital Drawing; likewise, if you have it listed as such, please submit Fanart to the Fanart folder, regardless of whether it is a Traditional/Digital painting/drawing. Thank you :)

Pieces that will be declined include (but are not limited to):

:bulletpurple: Childish drawings, poor quality, snapshot type photography (eg. poor/blurred shots of your friend/dog/cat/animal, random objects that have just been snapped with no thought of artistic lighting etc).

:bulletpurple: Rough sketches and unfinished work (WIPs) are also not welcome. There is no need to submit 3 different versions of the same drawing, eg. a rough sketch, a digital and traditional coloured verison.

:bulletpurple: The deviation should be your own work. Anything found to be in breach of general copyright (screenshots, etc) will not be accepted into our galleries.

:bulletpurple: Work we feel does not represent the best in your gallery

:bulletpurple: Anything that is just total rubbish will be denied. (But if we decline your piece we are not saying your work is rubbish! Most likely it is for one of the reasons above. This is just here to make this point clear :))

:bulletpurple: Please choose your BEST and FINISHED pieces to submit to the group.

:bulletpurple: PLEASE DO CONTINUE TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK!!

:bulletpurple: PLEASE
don't take it as an insult if one of your pieces was denied. It's not that we don't like your work or have anything personal against you!! We just want your very best work :heart:

:bulletpurple: PLEASE DO NOT resubmit work that has been denied. Please respect the Admin's decisions. Resubmitting work that has been denied may get you booted from the Group.

:bulletpurple: PLEASE DO NOT leave notes asking why a piece was denied...you will most likely get a generic reply that your piece does not meet the standards we're aiming for in our galleries.

:bulletpurple::bulletpurple: How to Submit: :bulletpurple::bulletpurple:
Go into the "Gallery" and choose from the appropriate category/folder eg. Photography People, then click the "submit to this folder" button. Please do not submit work to the Featured Gallery.

Hey Hey! It is so crazy how spread out us Aussies from each other and also the rest of the world :(
I would just like to share that my studio, Pic1 Studio is holding our first Masterclass with L.A. artist Bryan C. Lee aka Funkymonkey1945!
He will be coming to Melbourne for 3 days in September to teach Figure Drawing and Anatomy!
If you have always been struggling with drawing people and don't know why or how to learn the right way, this will be perfect for you! 
I myself have studied in L.A. and it was unbelievable how much I was missing out :( Hopefully, seeing international artists will unlock a confident future for you as it did for me. 

Visit www.pic1studio.com/masterclass for more info on the class! 
This is Bryan's  DA - www.deviantart.com/funkymonkey1945/gallery

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! :D 

Thanks!

-Bryan (to avoid confusion, my name is also Bryan Lee)

Hi,
Thanks for accepting me into the group!
I'm just wondering, if I've done an artwork with both traditional and digital methods, which category does it go into?
