Hello and welcome and all that!
Introductions... We are a group specifically for self-portraits that are drawn, painted, whatever using either digital or traditional (or mixed) media.
Just to be clear, THIS IS NOT A PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP!
We don't hate photography or anything, it's just that there are already lots of other great groups geared more towards self-portrait photography; the point of this one is to feature illustrated artwork."What qualifies as a Self-Portait in this group?"
Basically, anything that contains an image or representation of you (I'll leave that up to the artists to interperet), illustrated by you using any media you fancy."What is allowed here?"
Whatever! Keeping within the dA rules of submission of course, but otherwise, I don't care! Hooray! Blood, guts, nudity, potentially offensive ideology, it's all good. All four? Even better!
We will accept scraps, sketches or unfinished work, just please submit them to the Sketches folder.
We also accept deviant IDs, as long as it is not too meme-y and presents as a pollished piece of art."What level of quality is accepted?"
Although this is a new group, I would like to try and keep an average quality standard for any art accepted. I think that quality standards are important for a group to survive and remain loved in the long run, and not turn into an obnoxious spam despenser as it snowballs towards becoming a supergroup. Not sure if your art qualifies? Take a chance, submit it anyway! Don't be sad if you're declined, consider it a challenge to improve c:Gallery Folder Guide:Traditional
Pencil, pen, ink, paint of any kind, markers, pencil crayons... regular crayons... Paper, canvass, whatever! Also sculpture, because why not! If you're vain enough to sculpt a polymer clay bust of yourself, I commend you.Digital
Anything created digitally, a la Photoshop, Illustrator, Sai, etc. Pixel art welcome! 3D stuff also welcome! (If there ends up being a lot of these two they may get their own folders) NOTE: If only the colouring is digital, it belongs in Mixed Media.Mixed Media
Anything made using a combination of Traditional and Digital goes here, i.e. things lined/inked on paper and coloured in PS. NOTE: Adding a filter, texture or colour adjustment to a Traditional piece does not qualify as Mixed Media, and should still be submitted to the Traditional folder!Sketch / Unfinished
For sketches and less polished or incomplete work. Scraps are welcome. I for one think works in progress are a style of their own, and can often be more emotive and fluid than a finished piece... For this reason, a special folder!
Please submit to the correct folder! There are only four, so that shouldn't be too tricky!
And PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT TO FEATURED!!
Submit away, my pretties! I want to see your lovely faces!
