Submission Rules

We're short on admins, but we're accepting submissions again! If you're interested in becoming a voter, send us a note!

Right now all submissions are accepted only if more than two mods decide that the picture fits to the gallery. If your submission expired it means that we haven't agreed whether to accept or not. This way we will keep the good, consistent level of artworks in this group. Thanks for understanding!

We're looking mostly for finished portraits with artistic hint. Note, that we're trying to maintain certain level of quality that we are looking for, so please keep this in mind while submitting.

Your submission must be:
We accept pictures done in most digital techniques, but we DON'T accept:
❒ photography and photomanipulations
❒ 3D

a portrait, which means it should be a "representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant".

We don't accept:
❒ pictures with overwhelming backgrounds and whole scenes
❒ posters and pictures with overwhelming titles and watermarks (including DA watermark)
❒ character designs sheets
❒ comics
❒ pictures showing only body parts (eyes, lips, hands etc)

There must be an artistic hint, some kind of spark that makes the picture interesting, eye catching. We're also looking for more advanced portraits, beginners works won't be accepted.

We don't accept:
❒ works that are traced or painted over copyrighted photography
❒ doodles, sketches, messy, blurry or unfinished pictures
❒ gore, fetish or oversexualised pictures. Keep it tasteful.

If you are advanced painter, you can also join




Hello friends and watchers!

As some of you may know I had been working on  the online course that would help you learn art fundamentals once and for all! I'm happy to announce that the course is on! Yay!

course starts 10th Oct 2018  - Ends 10th Feb 2019.

Under Control  course banner by LenamoArt

I want this course to be an exciting exploration of the methods frequently used by professional artists during their creative processes. I've prepared lessons and exercises that will guide you through elements of visual art through both theoretical and practical painting approach.

During the course you will gain access to 7 learning modules, covering art fundamentals such as:
  • contour
  • proportions
  • perspective
  • form
  • value
  • colour
  • composition

Upon completing each lesson you will receive personalized feedback that will help you develop your skills and create outstanding artworks in a comfortable and confident way.

On top of 7 learning modules, I had prepared bonus lessons that will give you a historical and cultural background necessary to understand how art fundamentals were developed throughout the ages.

This is an awesome opportunity to with my help develop your skills and fix mistakes.

Join me and get your art UNDER CONTROL!

If there won't be enough people to create a group I'll make a full refund.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Yess Boogie! 
After you declined all of my entries until today I'm very happy I managed to produce something that passed your critical eyes :D
So thanks for accepting!

I admire your attitude! A lot of people get angry and decide to leave the group when their works are declined. But I think artist must be resilient - otherwise it's easy to remain on static level of skill, and forget how important feedback from the viewer is.
StefanieDworschak Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hmm I just took it as a challenge :)
If people would read your rules and consider the quality of your galleries it should be clear what's expected. I think my other pieces were missing the "artistic hint" so I worked on that.
And btw I'm glad you are sorting out so my inbox does not get flooded with hundreds of pieces every day - had to unwatch some groups because of that :D

Awesome attitude, really <3 This group is accepting pictures on intermediate level. I've also started a group for my personal favs, accepting high level works - check it out :icondigitalportraitist:

hello, i'd like to know why my deviation 'just kyle' was declined as it doesn't look like it was against the rules. thank you in advance.

Hi, thanks for your concern but feel free to comment on the deviation submission comment section in the future to avoid embarrassment. This group does not accept all submissions of any kind. It only accepts portraits of a certain level of quality in a particular medium. Your submission came in a collective among many others. Compared to a majority of submissions at the time, your piece: 
Just Kyle by tsukhood
...was not on par with the collective. I chose several among those suggestions who were a bit "rough" as well but those happened to display a level of skill adequate enough to be duly represented here. I hope you can appreciate the feedback and use it as an incentive to develop your upcoming pieces to a quality that will stun anyone upon gaze. Best of luck in the future!
