Hello fellow members!

It has been a verrrrrry looong time since I posted something in my group. As only some of you know, I follow an education at the Film Academy as a Visual Effect artist at the moment and my spare time has nearly disappeared.
Nevertheless, I'm still checking all the submissions I receive (almost) every day to supplement the group I adore so much.

BUT, I have a few questions that have been on my mind for too long. So I am asking you guys to help me with it!

1. ~ First of all, am I doing well as a founder 'till now? I feel that I am kind of disappointing most members because they expect me to create contests, features and things to make the group more interactive and fun. But I'm just not the kind of person to do these things, but do you guys have interests to compete in such?

2. ~ Do you think the quality of the group and art is good enough right now? Or have you seen artworks which actually are too "simple" and ugly or not interesting enough to look at? I, of course, have seen many. I absolutely don't want to offend anyone by declining their work because of this and certainly not want to say that I can do better, but it could "ruin" the image of the group, because members are expecting it to be a professional one in some kind of way.

3. ~ What do you think about the fractal folder? I've received several messages over the past years that this style of art doesn't really suit the group, unregarded the glowing details. I'm not a huge fan of fractals myself and maybe more people think the group should be more about "distinctive" art rather than images you only see when you do drugs (kidding).

4. ~ And another important thing; what do you still miss in the group? (Maybe that's actually just the same question as the first one..)

Well that's it for now. Help me out, and maybe this group will become even better!

Rules and Guidelines

Please check these rules before you submit any of your deviations to avoid misunderstandings.

Submitting Art

:bulletblue: It is only allowed for members to submit their work. Become a member first before your submissions will be accepted. Preferably with a reason why you want to become a part of this group. (:

:bulletblue: The submissions must contain clear light sources and/or glowing details. That's where the group obviously is about.
Samples are: stars, fireflies, moon/sunbeams, lightorbs etc. Daylight or reflections of light are not allowed unfortunately.
The elements need to glow. Also in pixel and vector art.
Not acceptable: reflections of lightsources, dark and light contrast, neon or bright colors etc.

:bulletblue: Please submit to the correct folder. This makes things much easier for the group and it ensures that the art you suggest is reviewed as quickly as possible. If it is not submitted to the correct folder it will be declined, because of the lot of work and time to place it right.

When you need to choose the right folder to submit to, remind that it's not about the scene, but about the details and objects that are glowing.
Example: A spacial scene with machines and shooting weapons. The machines probably have some glowing sources, so it would belong in the Artificial and Man-Made Light folder, because (most) machines are made by humans.
Another example: A moonlit sky with a person helding a lighted torch on the foreground. The torch obviously is drawing more attention than the moon, though they are both glowing. In this case, it's about what's more important to look at.

:bulletblue: Submissions must be of your own work, not what you have found somewhere on the internet. No Google, Flickr etc. images.

:bulletblue: There is no limit of amount you want to submit, but keep in mind we don't accept art that has no quality or originality. That means artwork with crappy lines, blurry colors and strange proportions of the constructions.
:bulletpink: For photomanipulating: appropriate lightning and shadows and good use of blending.
:bulletpink: For traditional works: clean scans or photos of works and crops to only the art. No messy background or workspace.

:bulletblue: Stock photos are not allowed, even if they contain glowing details.

:bulletblue: The suggested deviation must give all proper credits for stock. This is primarily for photo-manipulations, but all digital artists must credit all stock used in their description, with direct links provided.

:bulletblue: No explicit art allowed, such as porn or fetish nudity. We accept some form of clothing and pinup-type works, but overly sexual positions or exposed genitalia or completely bare breasts without any form of cover up are not appropriate for our group.
