|These Rules Are Based On The Original Set By Our Founder. They Have Been Recently Edited by =thefantasim. Please Review The Rules Again Before You Submit.|
Regarding Membership Requests: All requests from deviants with an empty gallery will be declined. Please do watch, though. You can always become a member later.
When submitting art please follow these rules:
The work of art must be of your own making, plagiarised art will not only be cause for dismissal from the gallery, but also cause for us to report.
If stock is used that is not of your own making, please credit the owner. Failing to do so is cause for expulsion from this gallery.
In addition, we will no longer accept deviations where a copy righted photo was use as a reference for traditional art, digital painting, photo-manipulations, etc. This rule also covers premade objects and background. This is a deviantArt policy:
"Violations of the deviantART copyright policy occur when a member uses a creative work protected under copyright which someone else produced without first getting the proper permission from the owner."
Google and other search engines are not the proper means to find photos that you can use as references. That's why stock accounts exist at deviantArt.
Since it's been so quiet here lately when it comes to submission, I've changed the submission rule. You can now submit one deviation per day. Since we have over 2,000 members, if this gets out of hand, I will change the submissions back to once a week.
I no longer accept deviations that do not have a backgrounds, or simply a model in a background. I will make exceptions on that base on the deviation. For example, traditional drawings can be without backgrounds.
Please submit your work to the appropriate folder. We will not move your deviation to the correct folder, therefore, it will be declined. But we will send you a notice that it needs to be resubmitted and to which folder to submit to. However, if you make this a habit, we will no longer accept your submissions.
Please do not submit deviations to the Featured folder. I will select the deviations that I want to include into the Featured folder.
Only completed works, please. Incomplete work, sketches that look too sketchy, or trials, will not be accepted.
Adult material is allowed but it needs to be tagged appropriately. This does not mean all adult material will be accepted. Anything against deviantArt policy will not be accepted for this gallery. Deviations that we deem "too much" will not be accepted. This is non-negotiable, so no arguing about it or you risk being dropped from the group.
Please be respectful in tone and behavior. NO DRAMA! I would rather drop you as a member than argue with you. So you have been warned.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why did you decline my submission when I see that you have selected work that is full of imperfections?
This is what our founder wrote, and I'm doing to this as well:
"First of all art is a matter of taste , and while some of the submissions I decline might be of perfect quality, they might not speak to me . I choose art for this forum by what I would personally put in my home or sell in a physical gallery. Since this gallery is my baby I will only post what I can stand behind and I am not willing to compromise in this regard -Sorry."
FYI: We will be very picky about the art that is submitted from here on out. For example, we will no longer accept a simple deviations, as having a single/simple stock model placed into a background.
It's okay to ask why something was decline, but, remember, if you argue with me, you will be banned from the group.
Why did you decline my work?
1) See above
2) Your work is based on something that is against deviantArt's policies or we do not see what you've done as art .
3) I like the piece but I think it still needs work and I will leave you a comment on that.
Remember, no arguing. I could sit here now and give you my entire background in design and fine arts, but I'm not going to. You just have to trust me. If you simply want someone to pat you on the back and say, "Wow!", you need to join the groups who do just that.
You accepted me to the group and posted some of my work but are declining the work I submit. Why?
