please check out our club rules section before submitting artwork…
Thank you for your continued support of the group and for all your wonderful submissions, your contributions help make this group so special.

At the moment there are just two admin running this group, myself :iconcarolehumphreys: and Ana :iconpencil-stencil:. We hope the founder, Lianne will return to us some day. We have done our best to keep the group going in her absense. Recently, my deviantart account was hacked and I was unable to access deviantart for almost a week - big thanks are due to Ana for managing the group on her own during this time. This did bring to light the challenges we face without our founder as there are sometimes limitations on what we are able to do in the group. This journal is long overdue, a chance for a little featurette might be in order. I will showcase some recent works from each folder to celebrate the importance of your contributions to the group, regardless of the skill-level. Please keep sharing your works with the group. Ok, some of the works in the masters folders are a little older. We do still move works up to these folders :)

Best wishes,

Carole & Ana

I am not sure if I have got better or your standards are slipping but thanyou for accepting my work onto this very high quality group
CaroleHumphreys Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
You're very welcome. Decisions are not just based on how polished or highly skilled a work might seem; other elements can win through like atmosphere, good tonal range, emotion, sponteneity, etc. - it can be a bit subjective. Not every artist is a highly skilled realist artist and we shouldn't (as a group) treat realism as the high point. A lot of expressionist works can be deemed very successful in their own right. I will punish certain things like badly drawn hands in a life drawing, manga submissions submitted in high-level folders, drawings obliterrated by watermarks, etc. - I try to judge each submission on it's own merit; artists might not agree with the folders their works end up in though.

Are my standards slipping? Hope not. Your drawings were very appealing to me that day :D

When I submit a drawing where do I find the "Critique request box" so I can tick it.
I have sent a note asking this but as yet had no reply.

Hi Steve. I believe I did respond to your note a week or so ago. The critique request box is available when you are a core member of deviantART. 

As I said in my reply to your note, the :icongraphite-gods: Critique requested folder is closed at the moment. I was the only admin offering critiques and it was very time-consuming. We hope to reopen the folder for submissions some time in the future.
