Rules

Welcome to :icontraditionalmedia:
We're a group that is open to all kinds of physical media - if an original that looks by and large like it is shown in your deviation exists, it's welcome here.

Anybody can join, and join requests are automatically accepted.

We have two art folders. Illustrated "What goes where" guide
Tutorials, Walkthroughs, and Workspace is for deviations that show at least two stages of completion of a work, or photos of you in the process of creating something, or of your art workspace alone. You ca submit 2 deviations per month here.
Member Submissions is for everything else, including WIPs that show only one step. You can submit 2 deviations per month here.
In addition, there's a Promotion folder, for things like commission pricelists, announcements of contests, a new Etsy shop, or anything else that is primarily promotional, and at least includes traditional art.
Only a limited amount of digital editing is allowed
:bulletgreen: Digital cleanup of the scan/photo, like cropping, constrast adjustment etc. is encouraged.
:bulletgreen: Adding a digital "mat" (rectangular or simple geometric shapes) is allowed.
:bulletgreen: Adding a digital signature or watermark is allowed.
:bulletred: Not allowed is anything that changes the appearance of the whole image:
:bulletred: No digital colouring, tinting, adding textures, or obvious filtering.
:bulletred: No adding backgrounds digitally, including solid colour or transparent background.

Quality Rules
:bulletgreen: All levels of skill are welcome.
:bulletblue: Images must be presented neatly. In the Member Submissions folder:
:bulletred: No drawings on lined paper.
:bulletred: Paper edges should not be visible, or else the background around the image must be neutral and evenly spaced.
:bulletred: No photos that are out of focus, grainy, in front of a random/untidy background, or that are lighted unevenly, or so dark details are hard to make out.
:bulletred: Works that are rectangular should look rectangular, that means photo taken straight on, not at an angle, and they should not be distorted.
:bulletblue: Images including the tools and/or setup to create the work belong in the Tutorials, Walkthroughs and Workspace folder, not Member Submissions.

Rules about Image Content
:bulletblue: Images must follow deviantArt rules. The most common problem are images that include nudity, but are not marked as mature content.
:bulletblue: Images with sexual content may be declined even if they may be OK for DA as a whole (e.g. someone who's obviously masturbating, even with the censor mark over their crotch)
:bulletblue: Hate art will not be accepted.

All folders are open for submissions.

Submission limit per person is 2 per month to Member Submissions, 2 per month to Promotion and 2 per month to Tutorials, Walkthroughs, and Workspace.

Submissions to the Promotion and Tutorials... folder will be accepted once per week, usually on a Saturday, so if it takes longer for one of those to be accepted, that is likely to be the reason.

Currently nobody can submit art. If your watch settings for this group include journals, you will recieve an announcement when the break is over in your message center. (The start of the break was announced in a journal, which is still on the front page of the group.)
