Please be sure to read the following post carefully, as it contains criteria for what is and is not acceptable in this group, along with other general information
Who is allowed to join ArtisticAnimals?
Everyone! Whether you want to submit your deviations, or just enjoy the work that is accepted here, everyone is welcome. You can join by going to the top of the page and clicking the button that says "Join Group".
I want to submit my deviations, how can I do that?
It’s simple! You must be a member to submit. Go to the top of the page and click "Suggest Fave". Pick a deviation from you gallery and submit! The current submission limit is 5 deviations a week. This is subject to change every once in awhile, and members will be notified by a blog entry.
Why can't I submit to the gallery?
The gallery is reserved for Deviations of the Month and Gallery Admin picks. Instead, you can submit to the favorites.
Now some of you may be asking, what kind of work is accepted here, and what quality of work are you looking for?
We accept almost all forms of art here. We like to strive for a certain amount of realism, but are open to almost everything.
Be sure that the work that you submit is your best quality, because we will decline submissions that don’t meet our standards. While we do accept submissions from artists of all levels, this does NOT mean that we don’t have quality standards. Here’s a general list of do’s and don’ts:
No selective coloring/unnatural coloring (extreme saturated colors/hues)
Animals must be clearly visible, too much background makes for a distracting picture.
No humans as the main focus/equal focus with the animal. The animal should be the main focus of the photo. If you arent sure, please note the group with a link to the deviation in question and we will get back to you ASAP.
No caged animals! There is an exception to this rule, being that it must be artistically done, and that is decided by the admins.
No dead animals, unless its an animal feeding on its prey.
If your submission is a traditional piece, you must have some basic knowledge of anatomy.
Work must be your own! Any stolen art work will be removed. If you are uncertain about your image being appropriate, please note =rainylake and ask. Anything that does not abide by these simple rules will be removed from the gallery,and the person will be banned from the group.
Please don't feel discouraged from submitting if you do get declined. We would love to have your work, so just try again with another submission. If you have questions as to why something was declined, please comment on the correspondence message itself, or note the group with a link or thumb to the deviation. This does not guarantee an answer, but you may receive a critique.
