    What kind of art can be submitted here?


The best examples you may find in the Featured folder. The group does not support photography, photomanipulation and 3D rendering, but you may submit them to our favourites. For further info about the folders just see their descriptions inside.

No sweet pinky things. No abstract (don't confuse abstract with surreal). No cliché gothic pictures like from Victoria Francis. Modernish things and themes - from after 1940's - rather no. In most cases manga won't be accepted either - there are really awesome manga pictures, of course, but it's just everywhere around dA, let's take a little rest from it.

Think of brothers Grimm, think of Discworld, of Tolkien, of Moomins, Lovecraft, Poe, of legends, of the Golden Age of Illustration, of imagination, of some twisted stories and myths, vintage stuff - you will get an extra smile from me, if you illustrate something. Another one for subtle, storytelling things. For conceptual. For sublime colours.

You can submit up to two deviations per week.
Storaged deviations will be removed from the group.


    Keep it clean.


Deviations containing nudity are accepted as long as they are kept sane and decent. The reproduction of traditional art must be perfect (watermarks are good), no sketches, empty linearts or WIPs (plain white backgrounds behind stiff standing characters aren't much welcomed, too). Also remember, literature creations in English only are accepted. Fan art is fine. When submitting things like sculptures, jewellery or clothing, please send just one nice photo of one thing, not 10. And sorry, too low skills won't be accepted.

    If I notice you stealing art from others, you will be immidiately
    and permanently kicked out, and also reported to the dA staff.

Do not be angry and discouraged, if your submission gets declined. If you ask, I explain. Above of all, I want this place to keep a strict atmosphere. Besides, it's obvious that everyone, including you, wants to see really good pieces, hm?



    Features


There are two kinds of them:

:bulletblack: A feature for contest winners;
:bulletblack: A group feature for the nicest and underappreciated artworks - once a season.



Feel free to send me a note, if something bothers you or you have got an idea.


Said by me, STelari
