Hi Guys

Happy Chinese new year to you all~

I have been really busy lately and haven't post anything. I thought we could do something fun together.

How about a themed portrait event? You guys can give me some suggestions about what you want to, like steampunk Greek Gods or Self portrait as a character from your favorite movie...

Here's the rules I come up with so far:

1. I'll set up a special "event category" for this.

2. the portrait HAS to be created from scratch for this event. (Submission will need to link WIP process or it'll not be considered).

3. you have one week for finish the drawing/painting.

4. No photographs. Sorry... I'm a digital/traditional admin, I can't judge photos. Unless I can get our photography admin to join me (she's really busy now so I doubt she can).

5. Best works will be featured on the front page.

What do you think? will you participate if I set up something like this? Any suggestion for theme? Leave a comment and let me know.

PS, if you also go to, yes, this is very similar to their character of the week event. Too bad I can't figure out how to work the poll feature, otherwise we could have a vote.

PPS, I'll participate myself, but I won't submit to the group (I'm the only admin and it won't be fair that I accept my own work... LOL).

:bulletgreen: If you want to submit a deviation you must go to the GALLERY, and make a click on SUBMIT TO THIS GALLERY and submit your work in the appropriate folder.
:bulletgreen: You can only submit TWO deviations PER MONTH

:bulletblack: Since our group has grown into more than 7000 members we have decided to judge work by quality, creativity, composition, etc., and we pleasantly ask you not to be sad/mad when we decline your work and not to be discouraged neither, we will try our best to help you!
:bulletblack: Submissions that get declined most likely will not receive a comment/explanation, unless asked by the person (because we have too many members and we can't respond to everything). If you want us to give you the reason please write on the work we have declined.
:bulletblack: If your picture is submitted into the wrong folder it will be declined, so please consider submitting to the appropriate folders.
:bulletblack: 'Featured' folder will remain closed for an unknown time, and there will be only THE BEST works of the club which will be chosen monthly by admins and moved there from other folders.

:pointr: Thanks for considering all the rules, and remember, this club is YOURS!

By "dead" you mean "rejected your work"? LOL... The door is that way.

The heck was I thinking when I submitted my work? It's nowhere near as good as everyone else's.
Weegoddess Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks so much for accepting my work! It's very encouraging.

I didn't know there exists a rule "We do not accept works with deviantART huge watermark anymore." Confused 

Now I know.
Because of that, I won't be able to submit any of my pictures (no, I don't want to give up the watermark).
Because I won't submit any work, there is no point for me to be a member of this group anymore.

But I'll be still watching the group (because of other artists). Gallery 

Bye and good luck. I salute you!
