Greetings Drawers-Life members!
Please be aware that recently art submissions are at an all time high, so please be patient while we try to keep up. If your submission ever expires, please resubmit. For this reason we are looking to add some more staff to our Drawers-Life Group to help with the backlog. We have also, unfortunately, been forced to DECLINE a lot of submissions lately, due to members not following the submission guidelines. Please take a minute to read this:First~ there is a 2 submission PER MONTH limit.
Here are the 3 most popular reasons for your artwork to be DECLINED:
1~ Bad documentation - meaning it is too dark, bad lighting, notebook holes, not centered, etc... please make sure you are submitting a work that is clean and well lit and one of your best works. If you are not proud of your work, why should we display it in our group?
2~Wrong folder - please scroll down the entire list of subcatagories to make sure you are not just putting your submission in the people folder when it belongs in the fan art folder or the celebrities folder, or full body folder. Please take the time to look through ALL the catagories and your work will go through faster!
3~ Please read ALL the rules under our updated rule list journal! We still DO NOT accept works in progress, sketches, studies or simple line work!! We only display finished pieces of artwork that are complete and well documented. Please keep your practice work in YOUR gallery and you won't be disappointed with a declined artwork.A special and huge thanks to all of you who continually follow the rules and submit their work correctly. You are the members who make life a lot easier for us. We greatly appreciate it!
