Rules and Guidelines, etc.

Our Aim: In this group, we aim to show everyone how wonderful our world is/can be with traditional art - that is, drawings, sketches, paintings, anything you put on paper/canvas yourself, but not digital or photography.

Our Rules:

1. Please be kind and considerate to others. Everyone should have a good time here, regardless of interests, race, gender, etc. :|

2. ONLY traditional art, hence the group's name, please.

3. PLEASE submit to the correct folders:

i) Drawings - this is for pencil drawings on paper or canvas that are black and white.
ii) Coloured drawings - this is for, you guessed it, coloured drawings.
iii) Paintings - is for, right again, paintings on canvas or paper, whether acrylic or watercolour, oil based or not.
iv) Other - for works that are traditional but arenot paintings or pencil drawings.
v) Mixed Media - for those pictures that use paint/pencil/markers, etc, all tgether.

4. If you need to ask questions, then don't be afraid to ask, no matter how ridiculous it is, we're always happy to help. :aww:

5. Please don't submit art that shows suffering, sadness, or mature content. We want the group to show how amazing our world can be, for all ages. :)

If you wish, you may invite other members and advertise our group in journals, comments, etc by putting :iconBeautiful Traditional: without the space inbetween. It will appear like this:

If you break any one rule you will be muted for a week, meaning you will be unable to submit art for that week and your comments/questions will be ignored. It may seem harsh, but it is necessary. If it occurs 3 times, you will be removed from the group: HOWEVER, if you simply accidentally submit art to the wrong folder, and you let us know it was accidental, you will not be muted.

You can add favourites or request people to add their own work:
We can fave all art that shows beauty, love, peace and wonder of our world, animals, flowers, happy couples, the list is endless: but it has to be TRADITIONAL.

Most of all, please have fun add contribute the maximum of 10 pieces a day per folder - thats 40 artworks a day! :aww: However, please realise that nopt all works will be accepted, even though they count as one of your 40 - we only want the best and most wonderous works. All art that is denied will be comented on explaining why. You can submit denied works to the favourites instead. :)

Thank you for joining, and visiting, have a nice day. :wave:

Settings for the groups admins, contributors, watchers, etc, are a little strange right now. I'm trying to fix them up, but I might have to wait until the admin comes back.  I have limited control right now. We'll try to clear that up as quick as we can :D

Questions about adding a piece to the gallery have surfaced. So everyone is aware, every piece submitted goes through a vote. The voting is only active for a few days, I think 14, and if the voters don't vote within that time frame the piece doesn't get submitted. We're sorry for the inconvenience. Just re-submit it and hopefully that time the voters will be on to vote.  

If you have a question, please send :iconrosalina34: or :iconmysticaltemptress: a note rather using the group's comments page until the settings are changed.

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

100,003 kiriban - 1000 Points

First one to catch it wins!

Log into your deviantart account and take a screenshot of the kiriban with the date and time visible or your entry won't count. If you can't get both, like on portable devices for example, then just get the time.

Submit the kiriban screenshot through note only. I won't accept it if you submit through comments on my profile page, on my journals or anywhere in my deviantart page.

Right now (10-16-16), I only have 50,700+ previews so it's still a very, very long way to go. Link back to this comment in your note so I'd remember about this kiriban challenge and know where you read it from. ^^
