I hope everyone has been having a great summer! The weather is beautiful by me, we've been having lots of pretty thunderstorms and it's really nice and soothing. The days where it's not raining its nice enough for me to do some sketching outside, I'm really excited to have a nice summer, and I hope everyone else has a great one too!~
~ Some updates on submissions,
~It's finally shaping up! I'm down to around 800 submissions from the initial 2-3000. So once that's done hopefully we can get to the fun stuff!
~Later this week I'm going to be rewriting some of the older rules...nothing major BUT I'd like to make sure they're really clear.
~As always please make sure you submit to the right categories ^.^ There's still quite a few mistakes but for the most part it's getting a lot better!
~I was also considering adding a new category or two and wanted everyone's input!
I was mulling over the idea of photo-manipulations because I see quite a bit of it being submitted to digital art, do you guys think it should have it's own folder to make it a bit easier for it to get more noticed?
Also maybe a comics section so that peoples comic pages and strips don't get lost in the sea of other submissions? I'm open to ideas guys!
~ I also really hope lots of you guys read these things ;w; I know following so many groups and people this sort of stuff gets lost really easily...but please if you have the chance I'd love for all of you to glance these journals over!
~ Not our group but one of our affiliates is holding a contest to have your art added to their art book! Which is a HUGE opportunity for all you up and coming artists and super pros alike!
It's over at
and the deadline is september 1st!!
Sorry it's a bit short notice but I wanted to wait till things got sorted out some more before I mentioned it!~ If anyone is interested here's a link to more detailed rules! -> frills-of-justice.deviantart.c…
Anyways, that's all for now!! See you!
