:iconpaintedplease: - Paintings of fishes, Deadline July 25. Info

We'll accept new affiliations only with groups that have a strong focus on traditional art.



Dear traditional artists,

We have to apologize for our group innactivity for these two months.
The issue was that currently we don't have enough of admins to handle the flow of the sumbissions (to be honest only me Drerika and Tudalia were succesfully sorting things out in the group.) So as both of us were innactive lately (for holidays/exams), this is the cause of expired submissions and overal innactiveness of the group.

:bulletred:And with these words we are looking for new contributors.
Here are few requirements:
you must be active on DeviantArt (at least hour a day);
you should have a common knowledge of the usage of DeviantArt groups AND overal traditional art;
The rest of rules/duties of contributors will follow after you've become one
Feel free suggest yourself or others for the positions of contributors.

:bulletred:Before you make complaints, just simply resubmit your expired submissions.
As I'm active now and will deal with the deviations ^^

Thank you,

Thank you very much for letting me know:)
I am self-taught so some of my terminology isn't always on par, so I thought I would check:)
