1- Submit deviations to an appropriate folder (have a look inside them if you're unsure).
2- Watermarks and text that distract from the artwork will result in a submission being declined. We want our watchers to be able to fully appreciate your art.
3- No fan art! Only the most exceptional, creative, and fresh perspectived fan work stands a chance here.
4- No loose, muddy, or unfinished concepts. We maintain a high quality standard for our gallery. Speed paint style work will need to be skillfully done and impressive.
5- Submit only your best work. Those who submit a lot/often will be judged against their own standards in addition to our own.
6- As a concept art group we prefer to see fresh concepts. Generic, unoriginal, or uninspiring work will have a hard time getting in.
7- Painting and drawing focused work only. Photography and photo manipulations are not accepted. Most 3D artwork is also declined
8- While traditional media work is not refused, it must meet the same standards we hold to digital work, it must be impressive.
Admins at any point reserves the right to decline or delete any design from this group if they think if does not fit the theme of this group or a particular folder.
If your submission has been declined and you would like to know why, leave a message on your submissions ticket (found in your message center) and we'll try to give you a critique.
Get in touch with the founder
You've been removed from the group for abusive language towards admins on the page page and on blog posts while we've been sorting out a few internal issues. One of the reasons was I had a bad motorcycle incident and broke a few essential limbs for typing, that is why the group slowed down for a few months.
Thank you for all of your contributions but we don't allow bad behaviour, if you choose to calm down a bit we may reconsider, but if your behaviour continues, we wish you all the best.
Yes it's about value relationships so I'd suggest doing the character first on a neutral gray background, make the values work for the character, then apply a background that works. Get comfy with curves or levels adjustment in Photoshop or whatever the equivalent is in the program you use because it helps you adjust values overall without having to repaint.
Is it really that bad to do something like this?
Hope that helps.
less than 10 work of yours in our group. Its just to keep it fair
for everyone else.
Do you guys know any particular reason why that might be?
(I am a member, I have submitted before, it's been about a week since I last tried, and I have not submitted 20 artwork yet.)
I'll try and provide you with some feedback on it.
Furthermore, I've seen some images here with groups reaching into the forties. If this is a rule you stand true to then perhaps you should sift through every image here and pull out the ones with over 10 groups, regardless of wether these images were added to your group first so you can make sure that the next time someone tries to submit an image and you tell them that they are spamming, they dont get annoyed at seeing all the other images on here loaded with groups, otherwise this rule should be void.
Some of your rules here seem extremely stuck up, opinionated and discriminating.
of lack of quality?
and when you said that you compare the quality within my own gallery does it say
that if you saw a submission and indeed is the best of my all it still can be denied because even my best isn't good enough?
i'd like a reply
Ps. srry for English...i'm 15 year old Dutchman
But when we say that we'll accept the best work we do compare it to the rest of our gallery folder.
It doesn't mean you won't get in. It just means that you'll have to work at it.
I'm sorry if it sounds a bit stupid but it seems I asked this a very long time ago
And you are replying now I don't really remember what I said. I can't remember
If you ever declined something from me in order to send this reply.
Can you make it a bit brighter for me?
Thanks again for your time
- If a deviation isn't accepted on one day because the others were obviously so much better, can someone try to submit exactly the same work on another day with hope the mindblowing artists in this goup don't submit on the same day?
Or is it one try per deviation?
- Also can I see which and how many Deviations are awaiting the declining or acceptance of the submission?
If 100 Deviations would have been sent today, I would never dare to even think one of my work could possibly be accepted today
and we accept/ decline work on individual bases so your work
is only compared to your gallery.
Only admins are allowed to see the awaiting list and/or respond to them.
Its best to ask within the submission ticket why your work was denied,
i'm sure one of the admins will happily help you out.
Best of luck
"3- If we see more than 10 groups already listed in your work. We'll deny your work. We consider this spamming. (No spamming)"
Upon looking at the quality of art in your galleries, I've noticed that some images have more than 10 groups listed on their work. Is this a new rule, or if say we submit to this group first this rule can be bypassed?
We see it as Forcing other people to view your work.
The rule is not new but I believe some people are submitting to us first and then to other groups.
We say pick the group that can expose your work the best and just submit to them.
Interesting, I think I have a good base of groups I submit too but who's to say which is the best? I happened upon this group when someone Favorited one of my images and my looking at their work found it. You guys put together a magazine which is an interesting idea, but do people that work in the industry; and thus the possibility of finding work; view this? If you guys had a jobs section, I think that would add to the group status. Granted, there are groups whose focus are commissions which I haven't even delved into.
Anyway, I look forward to being a member.
What if my style is that of expressive swirls and hatched textures. (Think Yoshitaka Amano with Moebius)
I draw a bit like a comic book artist. Xd
Does this mean that it needs a description, or must not have one? I don't get it. Also, does it mean any traditional art with the description written on it is denied?
