Beneath is the entire admin team.

You can reach us for everything, anytime.
we usually respond within 12 hours.
(but we still are humans like everyone)

if someone is rude to you,
if you need help with a drawing,
if you could use feedback...

All those things and whatever you can think of, we are there for YOU, thats why this group exists after all, so don't hesitate and tell us if there is something wrong.


Hello there my fellow artists,

as of right now, you are allowed to submit mature content (within the DA rules of course) to the group if you accept the following rules:

- mature content is mandatory to be labled as such in the submission process. Be it gore, nude, fetish etc.
- submissions have to be submitted into the mature content folder. Anywhere else and we will delete the submissions wihout notice.
- you are allowed to submit up to 2 mature content pictures a day
- we take the right to refuse the submissions, if we have a proper reason. The reason is open for discussion if you think it's bullshit we can talk about it.

That is all, thank you

question since i am not good with groups where do i have to sumit art on this page?
UntappedChaos Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Once you join the group, there will be a submit to Gallery button at the top of the page.  Otherwise, you can go to the deviation you want to submit, and there will be a menu on the right side of the screen where you can choose to submit it to a group.  If the group name doesn't immediately come up, you can type the name into a search bar when you click the round button to "Type a Group Name".  *^_^*

For casual critique, you can submit it to the Critique folder.  If you're looking more accurately for critique from a particular person (like one of the admins~) you're welcome to tag us in the deviation description.  :la:

Hello there. You'll post your art normally in the gallery into a specific folder that suits you pic best. The staff will see it and decide if it will go to that folder or another. as for tips you can ask fpr it in your pictures description or just send a note. We will take a look and give you pointers if you like.

I really look forward to working with this group and to improve  my art.^ ^
 I have a question, how does the critiquing art,work? and is there a specific person I should do this with? 
UntappedChaos Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can tag an admin and request critique if you're very actively looking for it.  Otherwise  you can just submit your pieces to the Critique folder to let people know you're open to it.  <3

Abakuu Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well if you want critique just ask for it in your description of your pic, if that doesn't help just send the group a not with the pic in question and I'll give you pointers if you like. Welcome to the group.^^
