Submission Guidelines

Invitation

If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean-buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!


~Shel Silverstein

Beginner or expert, any creator may submit their work! We accept them all. :D

Because we want this group to be for all ages, all deviations submitted will have to be approved before it will appear in our gallery. We will approve the deviation submissions as quickly as possible. To help us speed up the process, please double check our guidelines below on what is and is not accepted. Thank you!

What's accepted:

:bulletgreen: Traditional, digital, handmade artisan crafts, literature, photography, and more.

:bulletgreen: Works that utilize a base are allowed, as long as proper credit is given to the base's creator in the description.

:bulletgreen: Some violence is allowed. See below in what type of violence is not acceptable. (If you have questions about the piece you want to submit, please contact a staff member).

What's NOT accepted:

:bulletred: Nudity, extreme gore/ violence, dismemberment, anything sexually suggestive, swearing/ offensive language and other inappropriate pieces of that nature.

:bulletred: Stolen or traced works (bases included) are not allowed. It would be unfair to the artists who have worked so hard to have their works be submitted by someone else. If a member submits stolen/ traced works, the member will be banned from the group. Please report any stolen or traced works to the group if you see them in our gallery.


Please remember this is a group for all ages. Failure to comply with our submission guidelines will require the administrators to take action. Any member who submits stolen or traced art will be banned. Submitting a piece that was made using a base without giving the creator credit will result in a friendly warning. Failure to update the description and give proper credit, or submitting more works in the future without proper credit, will result in another warning. Should this offense be repeated a third time, the member will be banned from the group. The staff has the right to take any necessary action should we feel our members are abusing the group or other members.

If you do not see a folder for your type of art/ creation, please message the group before trying to submit a deviation to our collection. Should a folder become full, please message the group and we will make a new one.

Questions? Send a message to the group, or contact one of the staff and we will gladly answer them.

Comments? Post them in the comments section on our group page! We promise to do our best to answer them all.

Spud's New Year by Cirprius

Thank you all for participating!

And of course, we have brought you a new theme for this month.

This month's theme is nocturnal!





Please submit to this year's challenge folder!

There are no limits on how many pieces you can submit for the monthly challenge. If you would like to submit more than one, please feel free to!

Please understand that there will be no prize for participating in the monthly challenge. It is strictly an exercise designed to help you let your creativity flow. Participation is completely voluntary and you are in no way obligated to participate. I understand that not everybody will have the time to make a piece, so please do not feel pressured. After all, a new monthly challenge is posted on the first of every month.

All submissions must be submitted by March 9th, 2015 (which falls on a Monday). Please have your pieces submitted by then. The only reason I put a deadline on submissions is so that we may move on to the next month's challenge.

would this piece be accepted? o 3o i know its nudity but its all covered o 3o only the skin is showing. i mostly added the filter just in case. its nothing too showy except that she has no clothes and the bodies at the back are also showing nothing really special o 3o

Hi there, thanks for tagging me guys. seth-ravenclaw, unfortunately I would have to decline this picture because it does not fit our rules for what is accepted. I'm sorry! I hope you understand. Thanks so much for asking first, I really appreciate you taking the time to keep our audience in mind. 

That being said, I really like the piece. There is so much depth in and so much to interpret. I especially love your use of cold colors. :) I have to agree with RetSamys as far as whether or not you should keep a mature tag on it. He has presented both sides in a very helpful light. ^_^

Let me know if you have any other questions. :D

thanks for both of your time xD and i'm glad you like it~ i don't like my artwork to be declined when i worked hard on it and indeed, just so the audience is maybe able to see it. but anyways, thanks for your time :3 and the next piece won't be that grotesque xD even though by dA's rules its not mature art. it doesn't show her nips or genitals and neither at the bodies. its not violent nor its gory but still too groteque for this group which i entirely understand xD you're doing great work! keep going like that x3

Good question. I would not accept it if I saw it. chromeantennae or SpriteBlayde, what do you think?

yeah i'd rather ask it with this one before i try to submit it xD i would expect you to decline it right away before you would even take a look at it because of the filter. i'm not saying that its wrong o 3o but i wanted to at least ask if this would be accepted despite it being under a filter. or if you would even call this a mature painting. there is no genitals shown, no violence or gore. its pretty clean for a horror pic as well. i at least want to know if you would see necessary to put the filter on it o 3o

Personally, I don't really see the mature filter, I always check out the Deviation.

Yeah... I know what you mean and for other Groups, it wouldn't be an issue, but I decline anything that is explicite or implicite enough. I realise that this is something different from a very short bikini, but it's how I interpreted the Group's rules. :shrug: This is about protecting the younger members of our Group and it's not about how erotic it is... still a bit ambiguous in this case, but again, I would decline it.

There's also the problem that there are similar Deviations that were more implicite, but just as explicite. It might get harder, with people with this kind of spectrum of motifs, to distinguish between nude non-explicite, implicite and nude non-explicite, non-implicite art...

Does that make any sense? I always try to make a fair decision for everyone and I have declined similarly nude non-explicite, non-implicite artwork simply because of the nudity being a distinguishable feature. I am absolutely ready to talk about this (even though the admins have the final say).
