Submission Rules

We've adjusted the rules slightly as we are noticing that members of the group have begun to abuse the rules, and even refused to pay attention to the rules
:bulletred: You may submit up to 1 deviation per day, as we are encouraging you to submit your BEST work, not your whole gallery

It's about Quality not Quantity

:bulletorange: Be sure you submit to the correct folder!

:bulletyellow: Please, no W.I.PS and Scraps-- We would like to see the best of the best when it comes to your work!

:bulletgreen: Try not to submit sketches-- If you really must, we'd like to see completed, well-refined sketch works. Lined paper is certainly a no-no, but detailed sketch-dumps are a-ok.

:bulletblue: Please ensure that each submission is unique. Multiple submissions of the same subject/alternate views will no longer be permitted. Remember, you're submitting to show off your amazing talent, not flaunt the same piece over and over--Not to mention how repetitive it is to see in watchers' inboxes. That being said, pick the absolute best of the best-- or include all of your shots in the same deviation.

:bulletpurple: Mature submissions must not violate deviantART's TOS, and are subject to moderator approval. Because of how subjective this decision is, we ask that you not take it personally if declined. We ask that you limit these to Artistic Nude or "soft" fanservice of original characters. Ask yourself, if you were submitting a portfolio to a general company, what would you draw the line at? More times that not, if you're unsure, the answer is no. Mature works that are fanart or sexually explicit in focus will not be accepted. This is a general art group, not one which focuses on these things!

Violating these submission rules will have your piece declined-- but do not fret! You're more than welcome to resubmit when it no longer is against the guidelines.

Welcome to spread-theArt!

Hi fellow deviants! This is a new group made for everyone and anyone.
Firstly, we'd like to pose to you a question.

Ever made an artwork you were so proud of and felt accomplished about...
... yet never got the recognition you deserved for it?

Our purpose of this group is to feature and showcase the talent of the thousands of artists that exist out there who don't get the recognition they deserve. We want to create a group that does this, although you may hear this over and over, we would like to bring this to the dA community. We want to allow you to contribute your art and get the recognition you deserve!

So come along, if your one of these or if you just want to support art and artists alike who can relate. Feel free to join and post any artwork you like and hopefully we can show the world your wonderful talent!

Please do invite your friends to our group! We'd appreciate it so much

Welcome to spread-theArt!

:bulletred: :bulletorange: :bulletyellow:

We'd like to announce that our group is back into business!

Firstly we'd like to begin our monthly features, beginning with May. Throughout the month we'll be searching for talented works created by rather unknown and unrecognised artists.

In the meantime, we are also searching for admins and contributors interested in helping run the group. If you are interested please send me a note

Also, if our group would love to have new groups to affiliate with!

:bulletgreen: :bulletblue: :bulletpurple:

Our purpose of this group is to feature and showcase the talent of the thousands of artists that exist out there who don't deserve the  recognition. We want to create a group that does this, although you may hear this over and over, we would like to bring this to the dA community. We want to allow you to contribute your art and get the recognition you deserve!

I was trying to write a blog but it looks like they need at least three admins approvals to get posted. And I doubt that will happen.

Bellow is what it would have said

I haven't had access to a computer with internet access in a while, and for that I apologize.

It looks like from what I can tell most of the admins and even the founder haven't been to this site since last year.

It looks like only eiko497 was trying to keep it alive.

I'm not to sure how this group stuff works on deviantart.
However it looks like people are still joining, from what I can tell that is set up to auto-approve if a join requested isn't replied to.

And that I am still a contributor with access to the admin area.
Can I make other people admins as well? I can not seam to figure it out. And if I can figure out how to make other members admin, or one of you know how, would anyone be interested in being an admin?

Holy crap eiko497 , nthomas-illustration , guys I am so sorry! When I left off last time, it was during my exam period and I was hoping to get back into deviantArt once I'd finished. Before I knew it, a month or two passed and it seemed like I was the only admin still working on anything, and then I kind of felt dispirited after that and just went AWOL from deviantART. I came back once every few months, but I was so sure that all the other admins had also similarly gone and left, so I kind of let the group go.

I am so sorry, I had no idea you were still running it! I thought that everyone else had left!

Please forgive me, I had no idea I had left it on your shoulders :(

Is this group still alive because my work expired? 
NicksFluffyShit Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Is this group dead? Or wtf is hapening?
eiko497 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014
There is only one active member here to try and accept all artworks. But I kind of getting a bit mad at those who aren't active especially the Admin. :/ Since they are not caring about the group any less.
NicksFluffyShit Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
This is really sad! D:>
Sorry if I sounded rude.
eiko497 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2014
It's alright! :> 
Lots of people had been wondering, so I had to tell what's had been happening. :/
Honestly I'm not even sure whether to quit and leave this group.
