WELCOME TO THE ART DEN GLAD YOU CAME. RULES HERE TOO

Welcome to THE ART DEN.
Hello,
Let me give you little summery about us.
First the founder ( this is my husband).He is a photographer that enjoys the art of photography a lot. Also he will never admit this. He writes really good children stories for our children. He is a great husband and dad. He is also a hero to me and our kids in our eyes.
I am the co-founder. I a mom that is just trying to distress. This at times is by doing art. It has been a joy to try new things. This club was my husbands idea and I think it was/is cool. Just to let you all know we home school our kids. So we did this group to help us show them different types of art. All in all our family is just a bunch of artist that enjoy art. We just hope we can help others enjoy it too.
The 3rd member of this group is a dear friend of ours. She is a family woman with kids. We are honored to have her on the administration team. Her art is awesome. I love her jewelry I wear it today even.
The reason we stated The Art Den is to bring artist on DA together to enjoy art in a group where all just about all art is welcomed.

:coffeecup: :reading: :fusionrock:


PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING RULES. THEY ARE SIMPLE TO FOLLOW. IF YOU DO NOT READ
AND FOLLOW THEM YOUR WORK WILL NOT BE EXCEPTED. THERE IS NO ROOM FOR TALK ABOUT IT. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ASK AND WE WILL TRY TO HELP BUT; :please: PLEASE, WE REPEAT:
FOLLOW OUR RULES AND GUIDELINES.


:coffeecup: :reading: :fusionrock:


1-
These are subject to change as need be (which is rare). If we find rules are being abused, ignored, or broke too often, we will change things as we see fit. We are overall, pretty easy going and accept most things into the gallery. PLACE IN CORRECT FOLDERS! Or is will be rejected. We are not here to hold your hand; folder names are self explanatory (otherwise, look at what is within the folder if you are confused or unsure).

2-
NO PORNOGRAPHIC IMAGES WILL EVER BE EXCEPTED.

This is not refer to artistic nudes. We have a folder for that and anything that requires a "nudity" label here on dA should be placed in that folder. What no pornographic images means in this group:
NO FULLY UNCOVERED PHOTOS OR ART DEPICTING SEX ACTS. ALSO IF THE ART IS JUST WORK DEPICTING NUDITY OR JUST NAKED PARTS OF THE BODY THEN WE WILL NOT EXCEPT THEM. (that if referring to those crappy pictures taken with low quality camera sent via email or text or whatever, just to be crude or during sexting) THIS MEANS THAT THERE NEEDS TO BE OTHER ASPECTS TO THE WORK, THUS MAKING IT AN ARTISTIC NUDE. PLEASE, NO IMAGES WHERE THE FOCUS IS ON A BREAST or GENITALIA or BUTT. THE NUDITY SHOULD NOT BE THE FOCUS OF THE ART IN THE ARTISTIC NUDE FOLDER. IT SHOULD JUST ADD TO THE ART WORK!!!!

We the admins. have final say in what we will allow.

3-
NO ABSOLUTELY NONE, AS DO NOT TRY TO IT AT ALL. DO NOT SHOW ANY DRUGS (legal or illegal) OR ABUSE OF ALCOHOL .THIS MEANS AS IN DRUNK OR INTOXICATED, UNDER THE INFLUENCE., NO PARAPHERNALIA,AS IN NO DRUG REPRESENTATION. THIS INCLUDES POT/MARIJUANA. WE DO NOT CARE IF IT IS LEGAL WHERE YOU LIVE. NO DRUG DEPICTION, VISUAL OR WRITTEN, IS ACCEPTED IN THIS GROUP.

4-
NO ABUSIVE, SELF HARMING, HATE, DISCRIMINATORY OR DISRESPECTFUL WORK WILL BE ALLOWED! NOTHING WE COULD THINK OF AS OUT RIGHT VIOLENT. THIS INCLUDES WEAPONS. IF THE ADMINS THINK IT IS PROMOTING VIOLENCE OF ANY KIND.
NOTE We will make an exception to this, if it is an "awareness" artwork that is meant for positive use/inspiration. Say for example, it is to bring awareness to self-harming brought about by bullying and hatred from others because of prejudice, this is fine. Or to help bring awareness to people in abusive relationships, to encourage them to get out and get help, to let them know they aren't alone, this is acceptable too. BUT these messages must be clearly conveyed!! This is a very precarious type of thing, so it is literally going to be judged piece by piece and if we have any questions, we will ask. Please respect our choice, AS A GROUP (of the admins), if we decide to decline your piece. Please do not harass us about our choice.

5-
The limit of entries per folder is three. If you try to go around this limit by spamming things into other folders that very clearly do not belong, do not be surprised if you get kicked from the group. This group is not here for you to whore all your art and yourself out. This group is here to help share what you feel is some your best pieces with a larger audience and maybe end up gaining a new follower or favorite in the process.
This is for all folders.
(We may change this as we grow)

6-
All entries must be put in proper folders to be excepted. All folders can be submitted to by clicking the plus {+} mark on the bar of the folders please. OR going to the piece you wish to submit and on the right side, scroll down and click "Submit to group" and follow the steps.

7-
The Featured folder is for causes and art the admins want to promote. ONLY ADMIN MAY PLACE THINGS HERE. So please do not try to submit to this folder. :gallery:

8-
I really this was something I didn't have to add, because it seems like commonsense. We ONLY accept deviations into this group's gallery. We DO NOT accept journals into our gallery. Please do not try to submit any in the future. Over the years, we have had to kick out and block a few people who did not listen and persist in submitting their journals as though they were actual deviations. This is a gentle warning, please do not submit your journals into the gallery, they will be denied and repeatedly doing it in the future will get you booted and blocked. We also do not accept "literature" posts that are just journals masquerading as deviations. If your "literature" post has to do with commissions, life updates, etc... IT IS A JOURNAL and won't be accepted. Nor do we take "artwork" that is a visual representation of the commissions you take or whatever. WE ONLY TAKE REGULAR DEVIATIONS! The ONLY exception to the journal rule is if [1] one of us admin feel the statement within the journal is one that warrants it being added to a folder like "Political BS" or "Commonsense statements", OR it is actually a literature piece or poem(s) that the person posted as a journal instead of a deviations, because there are actually a lot of people on dA still who do not realize that there is a category for those things and they post them as journals instead.

9-
Respect all members and their work it is their way to express. If we see or hear of anyone harassing others, those people will be booted and blocked from the group.

10-
WE AS ADMINISTRATION HAVE THE FINAL SAY IF ANY ART GETS ADDED OR NOT.



And please allow us time as we do have other things we are doing too. We have families and lives outside of dA; we try to get to submission as often as we can, but sometimes we do get a few days behind.

Update Edit:


AGAIN, PLACE THINGS IN THE CORRECT FOLDERS.
At least half the stuff submitted lately seems to be thrown into incorrect folders. Some of the offenders are old members who should know better. I am tired. I am busy. I have a life that is in a bit of chaos right now and do not have time to play mommy to people who should have known the rules when joining AND should be able to READ the name on a folder to know if they are putting things in the correct folders. The same goes for the founder of this group; she has a very chaotic, busy family like at the moment and her health has not been the greatest this year. Come beginning of the new year, it won't be just voting "no" on submissions put in the incorrect folders, I will just kick you from the group.

To those that celebrate anything this time of the year, Happy Holidays, whatever it is you may celebrate. To those that don't, may your days go more good than bad. Too all, in case we can't make a post between now and then: Happy New Year.

Not sure why I have to remind people to use the proper folders. 99% of the time, if we reject something, it is because it has a more proper folder it goes into... The MOST common one is people putting crafts and handmade things into every folder BUT the "Jewelry and all things handmade" folder we have right here: the-art-den.deviantart.com/gal… So even if it is fan art or something else, BUT is a handmade item like jewelry, anything sewing related, those things you make by melting the plastic beads together, or anything else handmade, put it into the, you guessed it, handmade folder. I have recently also added a coplay folder the-art-den.deviantart.com/gal… for that stuff since that's getting more and more popular and we've recently had people submitting it. Also, please do not submit WIP or unfinished work, especially if you plan to post the final piece here as well. Had to recently kick someone out because they kept submitting basically the same stuff over and over again, after being told not to. There is a difference between trying to get your stuff out there for exposure and being a selfish pageviews whore.

Both the group founder and myself are very busy lately. She's had family issues and not feeling well, so has not been around as much. IF you submit something to the nudes gallery and it doesn't go through, it is because all things in that gallery need two vote of approval and her and I are the only ones taking care of this group. I have extended the expiration on those, but if you get something not going thru, please, do not take it personal, just resubmit or leave a comment on it and I will take care of or talk to her to see if she can pop on to vote, since we are friends outside of dA. As for me, I am busy between working on things for a friend and his website while also starting to do articles and game reviews for his site, taking care and raising my two kids (currently on summer vacation), spending time with my significant other (which isn't easy since it is a long distance relationship and all we have are video calls and gaming and stuff like that at the moment), as well as a ton of personal projects. PLUS my housemate has been remodeling and redoing things around the house on and off for like a year and half now, making things around home frustrating and unbearable sometimes. So both the founder and I are tired, overextended, and doing the best we can to keep things going here. No, we aren't looking for any help, as the amount of submissions are never overwhelming. Just like you though, we have lives outside of dA and those come first; not to mention it gets annoying when people can't follow the rules, even though we've tried to make them as clear and straightforwards as we could while also making sure there are as many diverse folders as possible.

Hope your 2016 is going well so far and the rest of it goes well. Please, follow the guidelines; they're not hard or complicated.

Thanks bunches!

Group Info

The goal of the group is to bring people from
around the world and their art into one place...
and in order to do that we have gotten into doing random search of the new deviations and putting out an invite of the art into the group in hopes you and the art will join it....
If you have any questions as to why your work was picked I guess it is easy to say who ever put the invite out liked it and thought it would make a great addition to the group.... Keep in mind it is not our intention to use any part of the work submitted for any other than showing it to every other member unless written granting is given to another for such plans we do respect all artist and their work...

Hell there. I'm new to this group. I submitted two of my deviations here recently, but I noticed one got declined. fav.me/damj4fr

I placed it in the Horror, dark, etc. folder, since that is the overall portrayal of what the picture covers. May I ask why it was declined?

Please read the rules. It is clearly stated (and MOST groups do this) you have to be a member to submit. If you can't submit, means you aren't a member.

I might be one of those who doesn't submit often enough, possibly because i belong to too many groups. However, having recently 'discovered' a new stereoscopic photomanipulation process which enables me to create impossibly symmetrical 3-D 'objects' and even scenes in the form of hi-def cross eye viewable stereo pairs. I've submitted three examples but there are more. Feedback on the effectiveness, worthwhileness and so on of the 'effect' would be welcome. This fav.me/d6trb5t [not yet submitted] was one of my earlier efforts; and this fav.me/d6thh0x was my first attempt.
