Featured Folder

Featured Folder Guidelines

The Featured Folder is for outstanding artwork that we all can
use as inspiration. Because of this, we would like you, the members, to be able to suggest amazing artwork for us to use in our Featured Folder!

When you submit a piece of art as a suggestion to be Featured, it will require three "YES" votes from our lovely admin for it to in fact be featured. This is an excellent opportunity for you all to share with the other members of the group exactly what inspires you as an artist. Any kind of "creature" can be accepted into the Featured Folder, so get suggesting!

Ladies & Gentlemen..

Our Lovely Staff!
These are the lovely people, without whom this group would not be possible! Be sure to send them some love!

I have a question.  My submission of one of my characters linked here:…

was rejected a few months ago for being "too humanoid"; that being said why was my submission rejected and these two were accepted?……
Zenhi Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey there!
Well, I'm not sure why it was rejected for being too humanoid.. I myself find a hard time sometimes with what is/and what isn't accepted as far as the humanoids go.
I do know the creatures are suppose to be.. just that a creature. Something completely not human in nature, or really appearance. Your character seems fine to me on those standards.
I do know however that we don't accept anything tech/robotic/or cyborg related. :C

I'm sorry I can't help you more! Perhaps I can round up the other mods and we can really try to mash out what is/isn't accepted!
shadefalcon Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014  Professional General Artist
That would be greatly appreciated.  My character here is not a robot/tech/mech/cyborg etc., none of that.

It's a bio experiment if anything both of electrical and organic biological matter/tissue, if you will.

Hello, I'm Xiaphearix, A founder of an other group built around creatures. I won't state the name of it, as I'm not sure how you judge advertisement here; That said, I would like to ask if my group could become affiliated with yours. or that there is some way to make my small starting out group a little bit known to people.

I'll be awaiting your response, Thank you.

I'm leaving.
I don't need a group that in reviewing work fails to read artist comments. At least for a Transformers group the work was submitted to, the Admin. researched the character after I said it wasn't an OC.
Second, I don't like it when because a style is different, it's not accepted. Different presentations of art should be accepted and not frowned upon. Plus the artist shouldn't be told to "practice" because it didn't meet the Admin's scrutinizing eye. Different uncommon style. Not talk down to.
(Editing in: Also it wasn't a robot. Research before you condemn.)
EvlonArts Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
I'm sorry to hear that!  I'm not sure which piece in particular you submitted, which was declined to make you feel this way.  The staff do not talk down to any members work, no matter the skill level shown, since we believe all artist are able to improve their work.  Also because we have so many watchers we do have and enforce a rather strict quality control (as is mentioned several times around the group, and on decline messages!)  Which ultimately is to help the members.  People are less likely to turn off the inbox alerts if we continually only provide the best we can offer.  Which means by enacting quality controls we are able to help submissions be viewed by a much wider audience :)

Also with each decline we always offer more crit, or feedback to the artist on why the piece was not submitted.  Replying to the decline is 100% expected and encouraged means of communication between the artist and the group.  Also unless the decline specifically mentioned that it was declined due to the subject being a robot, then that was not the reason ;)

I got told to re-submit my work to a different folder but the group's settings won't let me :(.
EvlonArts Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Which error are you getting?  I may be that you need to wait a day before re-submitting if it was declined :)
