Before submitting art or joining you may want to read our rules:
This is a club for everyone with art and photography of all levels, the most important rule of all is to respect each others artwork and design ideas. We're here to improve, but directly saying an artist is bad can be discouraging and may put people off taking pictures or drawing at all, and we certainly don't want that happening here!
We understand that you may want to draw something out of the box, this is possible without adult themes like violence or gore, etc. We do accept all artists, but artwork that is considered inappropriate for our younger tea drinkers out there, cannot be accepted.
Please don't spam our comments. We appreciate praise and comments about what you love about tea, but we don't appreciate pointless messages every 2 minutes or advertising on the group page.
So please, no spamming and no advertisements.
Inspiration is one thing, but copying an artist directly without them knowing, without credit, and without their permission, is a breach of dA's copyright policy! If this is done, you may not just be blocked from the tea club, but you may be banned from dA altogether!!
Please do not copy other artists drawings, paintings, photography or any other of their deviations. I do look out for copies of other's work and if I see one I find out about it!
And finally please don't use aggressive or rude language. Please don't use swear words or target artists/photographers, as this is a group for everyone and we don't want people to feel intimidated by our members.
What will happen if I break these rules?
In some cases someone may have commented before thinking and ended up saying something they didn't mean to, in this case you will get a warning but won't be banned from the group. If you however, directly target an artist, copy artwork by others without credit and their permission, constantly spam or advertise every single day, you will instantly be blocked from our group.
Thankyou for respecting these rules, it is much appreciated!
Where do I submit my artwork?
There are plenty of folders to choose from and all those different names can get confusing, so here's some help:
Go to the Group Gallery
When you click there, you will see a number of thumbnails and sub-headings on the side.
Each one has a different name and each type of art belongs to a different folder, so here's what each one means!
Featured: Please submit any tea related artwork to the featured folder, as well as to the appropriate folder. So for example a pencil sketch is traditional and would go in featured and traditional tea folders.
Traditional Tea: Pencil sketches, paintings, collages, etc. This folder is for anything done on paper by hand and anything else that is done without the use of cameras, computers, or technology in general.
Digital Tea: Drawings that have been done on a computer, tablet or using any form of graphics imaging software.
Tea Photography: For all your photos with tea, tea parties or a relation to tea.
Tea Icons, Stamps, and Dividers: Free to use dividers, stamps or icons that are related to tea!
Tea Custom Box Backgrounds and Journal Skins: Free custom resources that are for groups or deviants pages, making the background look sweet with a nice cup of tea!
Animated Tea: Animations or animated creations that are all about or related to tea!
Snacks that are yummy with tea: Whether it be millionaire shortbread or cookies, any snacks that you enjoy with tea are accepted in to this folder.
The Tea Club Fan Art: Artwork or photography that is directly for The-tea-club, including drawings of myself, co-founders or the group's layout, etc.
If you are confused about anything on the group's page, please do feel free to ask in the comments! We will reply to you as soon as we can!
