Submission Quick-guide

As painters is a media-based group, our most important rule is that it's in a wet media, and more than likely applied with a brush (or spread with an instrument.) I accept anything as long as it abides by DA's T&C (help) so please be aware that the subject matter of the paintings herein do not reflect my views, the views of the group, or the views of DA. After that we ask that you:

:bulletblue: Submit your paintings to the folder with the current year (currently '2017'), and all tutorials to the Tutorials folder.
:bulletblue: Include the media in the description, title, or tags.
:bulletblue: Have your painting in the Traditional Art > Paintings category (exceptions are made for Fan Art, etc.)
:bulletblue: Crop your photograph so that only the painting is visible. If you would like a thorough step-by-step process on how you can achieve a great looking photograph of your painting, please click here for an online tutorial.
:bulletblue: We only accept one painting per day.
:bulletblue: I only do one upload a day, so please be patient.

There are a few more rules that clarify works in mixed media and other materials, please read through our full Join & Submission Guideline to learn more. Thank you and happy painting!

sorry to ask, but how long does it usually take to be accepted/declined as a member? I mean, one glance at my front page should be enough :0
