If you'd care to read our Rules on the front page, you'd understand. So before angry shouting, read the rules first.

I have read the rules and the rules are nice. but leaving a comment would have been nice as well.
Drerika Featured By Owner May 13, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
So if you reed the rules, you had to know that we do not notify anything if submission have got declined into Featured folder. So you need to resubmit to suitable one

I have a quick question: do you accept traditionally created fanart? There isn't a folder for it and I'm not sure which ones mine would go into.

Just in case you're wondering, these are the pieces I'm hoping to submit: Qunari Heraldry…

and Mythal Tarot Card (once I've finished painting her - this is only a WIP atm because she's a lot more complicated, and is part of a 9-painting (minimum) series)…

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

We accept mostly everything as long as it is traditional.
The first piece would be accepted into 'Fractal, abstract, surreal' or 'Other' folder, while the second one when finished I think would be 'Fantasy' (I recognize wings and humanoid I think).
However, you should read our rules and small descrioptions of gallery folders, so you'll know what and where to submit ;)
By the way, we do not accept WIPS.

Hi hon. I did read them first, I just wished to make sure. I run several groups myself, and know just how much bloody hard work it is going through the folders and having to shuffle deviations around when submitters don't get it right.

Thanks mate.
