First off I do apologize for my long absence. Things have stacked up but I'm going about setting them straight.
I'll keep this short and sweet.
1. There is only one gallery for submission now - Fantasy Art.*
2. There are no longer submission guidelines - submit your art, but please understand acceptance is at the sole discretion of the admins.**
3. I need help! - if you want to help me vote on incoming submissions I would greatly appreciate it.***
*Maybe submissions were being submitted to the wrong folder. So now the "folder" is just Fantasy Art, it'll be almost impossible to get that wrong.
**Read this if you want to know why some deviations are accepted, and some are not.
Deviantart if full of groups, those groups are full of art. I want Fantasy-Dwellers to be full of GOOD ART. GOOD ART is subjective, but I define it as any art that holds that inexorable beauty that impresses the viewer. It can be in its color, line-work, detail, whatever. Submissions don't have to be "this one thing and not that", but they do have to be "good" in one way or another. Please understand that the admins (mostly me) are born and raised with bias, and that beauty is not always subjective or universal.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND. IT'S NOT PERSONAL. Please don't submit art to the group if you cannot handle rejection, I don't want to hurt your feelings, I just want our galleries full of works worth looking at.
***Please be at least reasonably competent at critiquing artwork. I may have a small "quiz" or "test" to see if your preferences and discernment lines up with the vision for the group.
