DA- Art-Gallery will be losing half of its folders. Some are not being used enough. Some are constantly having the wrong thing submitted.
Artistic Nudes is going to be taken down. I have some brilliant art in here, but lately I am having submissions that have super huge breasts, etc. If people are not going to take art seriously, then it won't be there. Transportation is going into Still Life. Architecture is going into City Scenes.
Country Scenes are going into Landscapes. This category is not being used except maybe once a month. Games is going away do to people abusing it. I am getting childhood games submitted. Prose and Literature are never used. They will be gone. Poetry will stay. Caricatures will be gone. It is never used. Dark will be gone. Mostly, I get girls in black dresses holding a light. That isn't dark. Fantasy Environments will go in Fantasy. Fantasy is going to have to have some serious work to be accepted. Again, no girls in long dresses. Original Cartoons will be put in Original Characters. This has to be original work.Featured,  Conceptual, Waterscapes, Landscapes, Animals, (real only),Comics ,Portraits, Still Life, Abstract, and Surreal will stay. Games may go in Characters in Movies, books, TV etc.
They may go in Portraits. Artisan Crafts is gone. I get too many poor submissions. Fashion may go. I get fashion portraits, not actual fashion. I can't keep writing notes about submissions.I am sorry. Some of you are amazing, but I can't keep handling improper submissions.

  Art is not just one style. How many artists that are famous now had their work not accepted? Any new style is often rejected. Here it is accepted. Please only submit your best work. We do require high quality work. Remember to read the rules and submit to the correct folder. If you aren't sure then read the description inside each folder. Thanks!

No artist tolerates reality Nietzsche

When  you go out to paint, try to forget what objects are in front of you, a tree, a house, a field or whatever... Remember that every leaf on the tree is as important as the features of your model.

Do you guys accept literature? I see a poetry folder, but not a general literature folder. 
Bluesilver84 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I used to have one and I rarely got submissions, so I took it away.
ForeverEvanescent Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2018  Student Writer
Well, if you put one back, I'd put some submissions in there. :D (Big Grin)

First, good night! ^^
Well, I'm a hobbyist artist, I'm 17 years old and I'm trying to divulge my work, because I want to make this hobbie my work in the future :)
My art is semidigital (made on paper and then scanned on ps6 with the use of a touchpad), and I've been posting some on my dA lately, but unfortunately I'm not getting the feedback I expected ;-;
I confess that I am a little discouraged, so I came here to see if I can show a little of what I do :v
Please visit my page, <3
Thanks in advance! : 3

I have a question, if I have my OCs with characters from a different show, does it go to Characters from books, games, TV, or movies?
