Welcome to all new members! Thank you for joining our group. This group is for anyone who considers themselves self-taught, and all skill levels are welcome!
This group is for self taught artists, though we are not strict on what our definitions of 'self-taught' means.
Please be respectful. Do not bash other people and/or their artwork. We accept everyone and all forms artwork here!
Anything against DeviantART's policies are not allowed. Please note the group itself or an admin if you see something inappropriate and/or against DeviantART's policies. We will take care of it as quick as possible.
Please do not advertise on our page! No commissions price lists, no Patreon accounts, no raffles, no adoptables auctions, etc. There are plenty of groups that are made for that kind of thing.
Members are allowed to submit 3 deviations per folder per month. If you submit a deviation that gets declined, it will still count towards your monthly submission limit.
Please remember to submit to the correct folder! If you do not submit to the correct folder, your deviation will more than likely be declined. We will politely ask you to submit your deviation to the correct folder.
Don't like getting deviations in your inbox? Simply unwatch the group, there's no need to leave the group altogether!
It seems some people are having trouble joining the group. If someone is using the mobile website, the 'Join Group' button won't be on the page for some reason. You can simply switch to the desktop site and join, or just leave us a comment so we can invite you.
THINGS TO NOTE WHEN SUBMITTING
We do not accept advertising of any kind. No commissions price lists, or promotion for Patreon accounts, etc.
We do not accept memes, except improvement type memes and they must be submitted to the Improvement Meme Folder.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT sketch dumps, character reference/concept sheets, or any other such deviations. We want art that focuses on something. We’d rather have a beautiful portrait of your character than a reference sheet. The portrait is art, the reference sheet is just that – a reference sheet.
If you have a picture that shows genitalia/private body parts, sexually suggestive content etc., you MUST have a filter and it MUST be submitted to the Mature 18+ folder. This is so we can stay compliant with DA rules.
Fan art must be submitted to the Fan Art Folder only. We will not accept fan art into any other folder.
Lastly, please read the description of the folder you are submitting to. This will ensure your piece gets into the gallery quickly. If you submit to the wrong folder you may be asked to withdraw and resubmit your work, or it may be declined. We hate declining, since we love all of your beautiful work! So, please read descriptions first!
Thank you for reading, we hope you enjoy your stay here! We're always here and happy to assist you!
