Submission Quick-guide

As painters is a media-based group, our most important rule is that it's in a wet media, and more than likely applied with a brush (or spread with an instrument.) We accept anything as long as it abides by DA's T&C (help) so please be aware that the subject matter of the paintings herein do not reflect my views, the views of the group, or the views of DA. After that we ask that you:

:bulletblue: 90%+ of the work must be liquid media, not digital or dry drawing media.

:bulletblue: Submit your paintings to the folder with the current year (currently '2021'), and all tutorials to the Tutorials folder.

:bulletblue: Include the media in the description, title, or tags.

:bulletblue: Crop your photograph so that only the painting is visible. If you would like a thorough step-by-step process on how you can achieve a great looking photograph of your painting, please click here for an online tutorial.

:bulletblue: We only accept one painting per day.

There are a few more rules that clarify works in mixed media and other materials, please read through our full Join & Submission Guideline to learn more. Thank you and happy painting!

Message from a Deputy Head Curator:

I know longer know how to accept submissions to the group. I’ve been trying to find where it is in Eclipse, but don’t seem able to do so. Maybe it’s only possible for the Head Curator in Eclipse.

So, unfortunately, your submissions are going to time out.

We’ve been pretty understaffed lately anyway, as it’s only been me looking at the submissions and Freja-Odin checking membership requests.
