High Class Art is a group where you can view high quality artworks and meet other artists. We want to provide a platform for artists to learn and be inspired from each other.
This might not be an easy group to get in (see rules), but once you're a member we will try to support you in many ways: For example we regularly suggest DDs and we offer feedback or detailed critique when wanted.
Being a member means that you can contribute to our gallery.
If you only want to view the artworks you may watch us instead.
What are the requirements to become a member?
Quality: Our contributors will look at the artwork in your gallery and decide if it meets their quality standard. Your gallery must contain 15 or more original pieces to be accepted into the group. Pieces not copied from photographs or fanart.
Quantity: Your gallery must contain 15 or more finished pieces of artwork. Work in progress art work will not be counted. This is an objective standard, so there will be no exceptions.
This is to make sure that you are an active artist, we get an impression of your style and skills, and to prevent accepting accounts with stolen art.
As a member, please...
...keep up to date with the rules and blog.
...be friendly to other members. No trolling. No personal attacks. No spamming our front-page. If you ever have a problem with something related to the group, us admins, single members or deviations (e.g. stolen art in our gallery) send us a note and we'll try to solve the issues together with you.

We do not have a submission limit!
Please do not submit the same art twice into this club.
The "featured folder" is the only exception. If your art gets declined there you may submit it once again to the normal gallery.
If your art expired, please inform us by commenting on your submission. You can do so by clicking the "No comments" link of your submission in your correspondence list. We will receive the message then and the group-founder has the ability to invite the artwork if it received more yes than no-votes.
If your art got declined this will not change by resubmitting it! Don't be a spammer. If you want to know why it was declined, you can comment the submission with your question (just like you would do with an expired submission). Our contributors will do their best in giving their individual reasons. If you submit your artwork twice after it has been declined we might give feedback without warning. So watch out!
Submit your best work only!
Submitting too many artworks at once will force us to make a selection, because we do not want our watchers' inboxes to be "spammed" with one artist only.
Please submit your art in the right folder!
You may submit your art to "Featured", but we have even higher standards there than for the regular gallery.
Ask yourself: Would I give myself a Daily Deviation for this? Then this might be the right place. P.S.: We also suggest DDs.
We do not accept Work in Progress (WIP).
We do not accept detail close up deviations.
Images need to have an easy viewing size. Please don't go to small in resolution and avoid very distracting watermarks. Photos and scans of traditional art must be cropped well, be in focus, and have good exposure.
IF YOU WANT FEEDBACK ON YOUR SUBMISSION PLEASE WRITE "FEEDBACK APPRECIATED" IN A COMMENT TO YOUR SUBMISSION.
Otherwise our voters won't tell you the reasons for their vote. WARNING: Feedback might include very little "sugar-coating". Because of our limited time we'll get right to the point. Ask us to specify further if it's too short.
Please don't ask questions on our voting for a specific artwork on the front page - it is almost impossible to retrieve the link to your submission then.
..::+How to submit artworks+::..
You can click the "Gallery" tab above or click "Browse Folder" button under feature, and both of the links will take you to the same place. You will see sections of the gallery, and next to each gallery name will have a "+" sign. Click that to submit to that folder. That's it. Simple as that and just wait for acceptance.
All art work will be voted on to be Accepted or Declined.
