- if you remove your work from this group without explanation, we may ban you from the group
- we understand that we have a lot of folders. If you really don't know what folder it goes in, just drop it in and we will move it to the proper folder. However, please be aware that we concentrate on non-photographic works, so if you are submitting photography, please submit to the "Photography" folder. Thanks!
- there is a daily limit of 4 submissions
- we reserve the right to decline any submissions. You will not receive an explanation why because I run 12 groups and do not have time to explain, but try not to take it personally. We may even accept some of your submissions and reject others.

- we focus mainly on other forms of traditional art but will accept beautifully composed photographs
- please submit photography ONLY to the "Photography" folder

This year has been an amazingly difficult one so far. I apologize for not putting the time I should be into my groups. I will try to change that, I promise.

In February, I lost a pregnancy. In April, I broke off a 12 year relationship and, just recently, I had my heart broken once again.
I don't need sympathy. I will be ok. I am a survivor and I've been through worse.
Thank you so much for your continued patience and for making this group a repository of amazing art pieces. Thank you for giving your time and effort to the pieces we all enjoy. Thank you for being something positive in my life. I love you all.
I apologize that I have not been around much. I have been starting my own business from the ground up. I will try to get to my groups more often than I have been (twice a month) and I am in the works of getting more people to be able to accept or reject works. Thank you to the majority of you who have been so patient and supportive. I very much appreciate it and I hope you are all having a happy, love-filled life :) :hug:

My apologies for the slow activity lately, everyone. I have been having some lifestyle changes that include an additional job and physical therapy. Things may be slow for awhile longer, but the group will never be abandoned. If I get to a point where I can't manage all the groups anymore, this would be one that I would keep. Thanks for your understanding and I apologize for any inconvenience :hug:

Guys, my art has been waiting in the queue for a couple of weeks now... is everything ok? Cheers! :3
GenkiPuck42 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014
I understand that you're a very busy person, both on dA and in real life, so only reply if you have time...

Do you have any suggestions for improving the quality of my artwork to meet the standards that this group expects? I know that "high quality" art is very much an indefinable, "you know it when you see it," sort of attribute... but do you have any specific pointers for artists like myself? Beyond realism, detail, a good scan, and not submitting a work-in-progress, what type of criteria do you look for in a work?

I adore your gallery, and I would like to improve my art. This is not a complaint or an attack (nor is it a request for my piece to be reconsidered). I do understand that it is not your job to answer questions like mine, but I will appreciate any time you can take to give me a word or two of expert advice!

Thank you!

When people were conditioned to eat certain animal species and are convinced it was normal, natural and necessary, they’ll always find something to justify it. This invisible belief system or ideology is called carnism.

We were taught to love dogs, cats and other pets, but many people were trained to live with a “gap of consciousness” that makes them see meat as food, not as a piece of a dead animal. Carnism prevents people from seeing cattle, pigs, chickens or fish as living, breathing individuals with a mind and personality. This belief system is so widespread and entrenched in many cultures that it’s considered to be "the way things are" instead of being questioned.

Many people aren’t aware of the ghastly ecological and social consequences of meat consumption, but without awareness, we cannot make free choices.

Here you can read more about carnism (official website): [link]
