Reminder to Submitters


Group Info

:bulletgreen: OVERVIEW: This group is for artists who paint with traditional media. We require submissions to have a significant amount of paint in them. Examples of traditional paint media include oil, acrylic, watercolor, egg tempera, ink, spray paint, et cetera.

:bulletblue: SUBMISSION RULES: One submission per deviant, per week. Full rules are available here. Your work must be categorized as a painting or as mixed media in deviantART's classification system (if mixed media, please indicate media used) OR if it is in another category, include media you used in your artist's comments (gouache, oil, acrylic, etc). The scan or photograph of your painting must be cropped-well and in focus (e.g. no notebook spirals to the side of the image, no blurry images). Works-in-progress are not accepted, only finished paintings. Ensure you've submitted your work to the correct folder in our gallery--read the folder guidelines if in doubt. Mature works are accepted as long as they follow deviantART guidelines.

:bulletred: OUR GROUP MISSION: We're all here to share our paintings. Haters are not welcome, only kind comments or helpful critiques. This group shows that there are still plenty of traditional media painters in a world gone digital :nod:

Dear members of the Traditional-Painting!
At this time in the group, there is a difficult situation when I am the only administrator who votes for the acceptance of artworks. I could not get in touch with other admins and I am unable to fix the settings.
We now have works that have not been voted on since the end of May. This means that they are unlikely to be accepted. Please do not re-submit your work until the situation is resolved.
I'm going on vacation next week, and I don't know if anything will work out during that time.
Sorry for the inconvenience!

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)
