It has recently come to my attention that I never posted a specific set of rules for submitting entries to this group. Here's an amendment to this problem. If you have any questions after reading through these rules, feel free to leave a comment on this journal entry.

:bulletblack: You must be a member to submit any artwork to this group.

:bulletblack: All submissions to the group require approval before they are added to the group gallery. This is simply a precaution to ensure that all artwork follows our rules. Just submit your work to the correct folder and the rest will be taken care of. (If you notice something in the incorrect folder or that violates any of our rules, please notify me via a note to the group or a comment on the group profile)

:bulletblack: Any medium in witch one can "sketch or draw" is accepted. This includes pencil, pen, paint, digital media, charcoal, chalk, marker and the like. Sculpture and photography are not accepted.

:bulletblack: This group does NOT accept any racist or "bullying" material in this group. Any artwork submitted that is hurtful towards anyone will be denied, and said artwork shall be reported when necessary.

:bulletblack: In relation, this group does NOT accept any sexual material. "Tasteful/artistic nudity" is accepted so long as it is properly filtered as such and is submitted to the "censored" folder. (A simple rule of thumb for this: if it must be censored for deviants 18 and up, it is inappropriate for this group) Also, anything overly gory or violent must also be properly censored and submitted to the "censored" folder.

:bulletblack: It is NOT necessary that all submission to this group are rough sketches and doodles. In fact it is encouraged that you submit finished works as well as the in-progress ones.

:bulletblack: All artwork must be submitted to the correct folder, sorted my medium.

:bulletblack: Submissions to the "featured" folder are not accepted. This folder is only to display contest winners and what the administrators feel are the best images this group has to offer.

:bulletblack: The contest folder is only open to submissions while a contest is going on, and then only to entries for the contest. Once the contest is completed, these entries will remain in the folder.
First off:
