Hello kiddies,

Your most hated admin here.

Just want to let you guys know I'll be on a business trip to China for the next 3 weeks, having meetings in 3 different cities. I'll be very busy, in transit a lot, and internet access will be unreliable.

As a result, I won't be able to review art works everyday or reply your angry questions about "why my work was declined?!"  But I'll get through the submissions as soon as possible.

I appreciate your patience. And as usual, I'm grateful for all the works you submit to this group.

You guys keep being awesome.

:bulletgreen: You must respect all the members of this community.
:bulletgreen: Remember that this is a community! Comment and make any suggestions you like!

:bulletblack::bulletred::bulletblack:HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR ART :bulletblack::bulletred::bulletblack:

: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

:bulletred: We do NOT accept deviantIDs, snapshots, blurry and/or noisy photographs and photography with bad quality/light/composition.
:bulletred: We do NOT accept pictures of your feet or any other body part unless at least half of the face is there.
:bulletred: We do NOT accept sketches and WIP (work in progress).
:bulletred: We do NOT accept nudes unless they are really artistic and unique.
:bulletred: We do NOT accept anime/manga (traditional nor digital).
:bulletred: We do NOT accept animal portraits (traditional/digital/photography)
:bulletred: We do NOT accept work that isn't yours anymore. (example: a portrait of you made by your friend and submitted by you on dA)
:bulletred: We do not accept works with deviantART huge watermark anymore.

: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!

Not everything here is even super realistic. You're so biased.
