The Favourites Gallery has two primary purposes:

1. To collect artwork for which I'm unable to contact the artist (as when the artist has been on hiatus from DA).

2. To collect work which shows an admirable concept, but which is not quite up to our technical standards.

:sherlock: Don't be a fool; read the rules!

Our Objective:
To be a group for Sherlock Holmes fan art displaying high technical skill and originality.

We Accept:
#-Any 'universe', from canon to Brett to BBC to The Great Mouse Detective, and beyond!
#-Any subject matter: gen, slash, het, genderswap, comics, other
#-Any medium, traditional or digital (except written works)
#-Any rating, G to NC-17
#-Sketches displaying impressive technical ability
#-Images of Holmes, Watson, canon characters, notable locations from the stories

We DON'T Accept:
#-Anything from the Literature category
#-Traced work
#-Poorly scanned/presented work of any quality
#-Works in progress (except as mentioned above)
#-Images of actors not in character
#-Original characters if not accompanied by a canon character
#-Anything submitted to the wrong folder

Criteria For Acceptance:
#-Work must show mastery of chosen medium
#-Work must be either in a mature, well-developed personal style, or convincingly realistic (e.g. correct anatomy)
#-Originality is highly valued and will improve a piece's chance of acceptance
#-Work must be well-presented; scanned or photographed well and edited/cropped as necessary for optimal viewing.

#-Just because we accepted one of your pieces does not mean we will accept all of your work.
#-If your work is not accepted, we can provide a reason/critique, if you like, but will not automatically provide one.
#-You may leave a comment on the group's page asking us to review your gallery, and we will take a look and make submission requests for artwork that meets our criteria.
#-This is a hobby project and submissions will not necessarily be reviewed quickly. If your submission expires without a decision, please submit again.
#-Originality alone is, unfortunately, not enough to warrant inclusion of a piece. There are many pieces we would like to include, which are based on very good ideas, but which are poorly executed. These will be added to Favourites, rather than the main gallery.

Any questions? Just ask! :)
Sorry, everyone, but I will no longer be maintaining this group or requesting or approving new work to be added to the group. It's been wonderful to see the wealth of creativity in the Sherlock Holmes fandom, but I have other pressing activities that need my attention. The group will remain as an archive of high quality Holmes fan art for fans to enjoy--nothing will be deleted. That is unless someone else wants to jump onboard.

If anyone would like to be added as a curator for the group, you can apply in the comments. You will need to put together a collection of artwork (at least 15 pieces) that you think would be high quality enough to be allowed into this group, and link me to it. Any fandom's artwork is acceptable for this purpose, as is original art; I want to see your eye for art, primarily.

Thank you for reading,

I'm fine that you keep declining my work but I just wondered of your reasons why this is?  I've been posting to the correct folder, not traced work, and I thought okay quality? Many thanks.
The-Anglophile Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2017
I would encourage you to compare your art with what's already in the galleries. Your work, although it shows a lot of promise, is not proportionally accurate. If I can answer any other questions, let me know.
