Submission Guidelines

I want to welcome both new and old members to the group :) As we have had an influx of newer members I've found it necessary to lay out what the group entails, membership, submissions etc....

Everyone is welcome to submit, please make sure you submit to the correct folder for your art type. I have limited the submissions to 3 per person per week

Please keep in mind that when submitting we are pretty lenient on the content of the drawings as long as they are figure related. As we are working with mostly nudes, please make sure they are not offensive, and within Deviantart's stated guidelines to not be misinterpreted as pornographic. What we will not be lenient on is presentation of the images. Please make sure you submit a visible, clear scan or photograph of your work. If your piece is declined for submission, we will try to leave you some positive criticism on what you could improve. We will not be accepting as many pieces as we have done in the past to limit the lower quality works from the galleries. Please understand this doesn't mean if your skill level is not high you are not accepted, but please make sure to present your work to the best of your ability.

* This is a group for traditional figure drawing. Portraits are ok. What is not OK is non-humans, animals, anime, cartoons, landscapes, your aspiring comic book characters, still lifes and the like. Those are great for other groups and in art classes etc. but it's not what this group is about...

*If you join, you will automatically be added as a "member" This allows you the ability to submit work immediately.

* Please critique! If you like someone's pieces, let them know, and if you think that they need to focus on something, say so, but find a constructive way to say it. This group has members that are learning the basics...all the way up to some amazing professionals... ask questions, leave comments :) We are all here to focus on drawing/painting/modeling or otherwise artistically using the human body in some form or fashion..go make some art and submit it :)
If I see a relly good figure drawing how do I invite them to submit it to the group?

Such as the recent from Thomas Michael.
