Information about contributing art..
Being an advanced manipulation group, high standards must be upheld. When accepting art look for a definite light source, a grounded subject and of course, everyone's favorite, shadows. Does the focal point work for the manip, is the subject well placed on a background that 'fits'? Is the manip not overly blurred or dark? All in all, we're looking to only accept the best.
When voting, we put the utmost care into our decisions. If we decline your work, we're required to state a reason. If a contributor fails to state a reason for the decline on more than 3 consecutive, or 5 cumulative votes they will be demoted to member status. As stated above, we're here for growth, not to diminish the work of others.
When getting critiqued on a submission through the voting process please understand that we're here to help you improve and realize that though every piece is a work of art in and of itself, not all submissions are accepted into the group. Simply because one of your pieces was not accepted does not belittle you as an artist, it just gives you room and area to grow. Please be civil when accepting a critique and realize that everyone is required to voice their opinion when denying artwork. If you feel you are being mistreated please send us a civil message and we will look into it.
Be courteous and kind to others. We're all graphic artists looking to get even better, we're not here to fight and attack each other.
If you have an issue with a member, please take it up with them in private. This is a graphic group, not a battle field. Graphic submission pages are there to maturely discuss the positives and negatives of a graphic, not to duke it out for all you're worth because you dislike another member. If you argue/attack/harass/etc members on the submission pages I'll send you a warning, but if it continues, as much as it pains me to do so, you will be removed
