Q:"Why is the group called Deviant Bronies Elite"
A: We strive for quality and have a strong belief that practice makes perfect. We strive to be Elite and in order to help eachother on the way we feature the best art to inspire you, tutorials to guide you and we even have a special folder where you can submit your art in order to recieve constructive criticism on your work ! how cool is that ? we hope this way the faith in the self will improve.
we understand the misunderstanding here and there, we're not exclusive for artists with Elite art skills, we're a fun group for motivated people and the name references our mild quality standards. Q: what makes this group so much better than other groups?
A: The quality of a group is something that differs from opinion to opinion, having quality standards does NOT mean we look down on other groups or lesser skilled artists. Besides displaying your art we also :
Feature your commission info,contests,adoptables,etc.
help artists improve their skills (tutorials gallery).
Have a specific folder to request constructive criticism.
Feature the best of the best art a Pony artist can make, sweet and Elite!
we've been on deviantart longer than today and know it can be hard it is to get watchers, favs, points etc. so we hope to help you with that. We also care about your opinion very much! we appreciate feedback and take it seriously.Q: "Do i need to be a brony to be accepted here?"
A: nope! whatever you identify as, if you love ponies as much as we do you're more than welcome to join !Q: Am i good enough to join? can i invite a friend?
A: Yes you are ! all we ask and aim for , is art that shows Effort. if it's a traditional artwork, submit a scanned version. use actual drawing paper instead of lined paper and so on. even if you don't make art but simply enjoy it, you are welcome.
Inviting a friend is a good thing to do! if you enjoy being in our group and what we have to offer we hope you spread the word about us, Affiliation requests are also always welcome. The more the merrier! Q: what's with the Featured folder?
A: The featured folder for the best art out there,and the best of the best we display with pride, this is NOT a folder to dictate you what your art should look like and how good it has to be, it's to motivate and inspire you. The featured folder has the best art of our group and only Elite artists can submit to it directly.Q: My art is very much appreciated, and i even have Daily deviations. What do you offer me?
A: What we can offer you is display your art in our Featured folder and welcoming you into the Elite class, great art is to be admired and most of all displayed! We believe the most wonderful thing about art is that if it's your passion it is great to share that with others in order to motivate and inspire each other and to be an example to others.Classes:
