Group Info

Ever wondered where the art went to around here?

What ever happened to all those people who would flock to your prints account and purchase tons of stuff because they liked your art? What happened to all those constructive comments we used to give, where we'd actually help the artist, rather than just tell them their piece is "1337"? What happened to the good morals of commenting before you :+fav: favourite?

The good news is the deviantART community still has these ethics infused in our members somewhere. The challenge now is to bring them back.

Bring back the ART to deviantART.

We (kle0012 and kittysyellowjacket) created with this purpose in mind. We miss the good old days of dA, and with your help, and community support, we want to bring back the reason deviantART was created. ART!

Rules (and things we like and are looking for!)

Basic Rules for Submitting to BringBackArt:

• Please only submit 1-2 of what you feel are your strongest pieces.

• We are looking for original pieces of art that stand out and deserve more attention.

• Submit the pieces you feel are your strongest and don't be discouraged if we can't showcase them. We do get a lot of requests and try to keep on top of them all!

• Keep trying and spread the word!

What we like!

We like pieces that make you stop and look. We like deep concepts and pretty airy frames. We like artwork that speaks through photography, painting, literature; anything!

What we don't like!

Photos that were taken of you and your drunk friends at last Friday's party. We don't like composition-less photos that look like they should remain on Myspace or Facebook profiles.

Hello friends!

We're still on the hunt for new contributors. If you'd like to be considered for the position then all you have to do is leave a comment on this journal entry saying you'd like to come forward and sell us your soul (not really about the soul part!) We look forward to hearing from you guys, hopefully!

What contributors are expected to do:
1. Submit their art on a regular basis and fill up our gallery with their beautiful works.
2. Vote on incoming submissions.
3. Have fun!
