    Did something awesome on October 22nd, 2023

Thanks for stopping by!

We hope you learned something new :)
Recently it took over the group as the the founder, and I'm currently watching how the things are playing out. I saw that most of the submissions just expire without any votes on them. Recently there were some expired submissions from michaeladamidisart, who submitted some very interesting oil & acrylic brushes I haven't seen like this before. As I think such a great artist has to be supported, I thought I feature him in a journal entry to give you guys some inspiration. I also will think to change some group rules in the near future to get people more engaged and revive the group from it's slumber, so that the submissions will actually be looked at. Here some of Michaels creations:

:bulletblue: Only Members and above can suggest deviations to the main gallery. The deviations can be made by anyone, but they must be related to Photoshop. Meaning that they're a resource (brush, action, shape, etc.) or tutorial. Gallery Submission rules are as follows:

:bulletblue: All submissions must be a Photoshop Resource such as a brush, tutorial, or anything else that can be used in photoshop to help create more artwork. We only accept resources designed specifically for Photoshop, though some rare exceptions are made, for instance, tutorials that can be applied to more the one program.

:bulletblue: NO ARTWORK IS ALLOWED. All Artwork submissions will be denied, and you will be notified about it via comment. If you do this continually, you will be banned.

:bulletblue: NO OFF-SITE RESOURCES. All off-site resources will be denied, and you will be notified via comment. If you do this continually, we will ask you to leave.

:bulletblue:No line art, Stock picture, photo packs or anything else along those lines. Again, we only accept resources that are designed specifically for Photoshop.

:bulletblue:This group does not accept PSD and Action files.

:bulletblue:Free resources only!

:bulletblue: WE NO LONGER ACCEPT FAVORITES. Group faves are a silly idea anyways. :iconohuplz:

All Group submissions require votes from administrators to make sure the right types of deviations make their way into the Gallery or Favorites. Any submission that is artwork, off-site, or requires payment will be automatically denied.



If you wish to affiliate, feel free to drop us a note about it. Make sure your group is related to us, and even then, we make no promises. :)

If you would like to show your appreciation, then it would really be great if you would instead comment on something in our gallery to support the artists who have contributed, or join us in the chatroom. Thanks!

Think Before You Type

We generally like to think we're nice people but some would disagree, and for the most part, we respect that. However, to prevent further idiocy, any comments seen as bitchy, asking people for pg views in any way, or having a lack of any common sense will simply be hidden, and in some cases, reported as spam. Thank you for understanding. :)

All comments asking for points, pageviews, or are advertising something will be either hidden or marked as spam. So don't even bother.

Hey, make sure you set your group admin permissions to "Subject to Vote" or "Are Not Allowed". There has been two notorious group hijackers for over a month now who apply as a co-founders, delete all the artwork in the gallery and favorites, and replace it with gore, scat and porn.
As an example:…
(the NSFW stuff has since been removed but the gallery has been wiped out)

Alert, there is a group hijacker that is targeting photography groups by applying as a co-founder, deleting all the artwork, and replacing it with gore, scat and racism. Please set all group admin permissions to "Subject to Vote" or "Are Not Allowed"
