Hello fellow members!

I would like to apologize if the group is kind of boring because there were no interesting activities all these years. I am still very busy with my education as a graphic designer and will be doing a new one after this one. I tried to find a few new co-founders and administrators once, but sadly without success.

Even though there is not much to do here, there is a lot to see though. That was my first intention of course! I hope you guys don't mind that! But ideas, tips and sacrifices to become an administrator or any kind of member to help the group grow is much appreciated!

And if you may be interested in my personal project, which now is still a concept, you can check it out in the link below. The title says it all. Please like! :D…

Keep going on with creating amazing art! :love:

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.

I have a question: is a greyscale painting acceptable here as long as it has the glowing/clear light source or does the painting have to be fully colored? Thank you! :D
Misstarretje Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2016  Student General Artist
Well, in most cases with greyscale art it is hard to determine whether something is glowing or it's light reflection. Even without color art could be beautiful. So you may give it a shot! :D
