Hello lovely members!

In the previous journal I asked about changing the names of all gallery folders. This is what I am thinking about:

- Magical Spells and Elements
- Incandescence, Combustion and Sunrays
- Moonlit Skies, Starry Nights and Auroras
- Planets, Space and Celestial Bodies
- Artificial and Man-Made Light
- Thunder and Lightning
- Bioluminescence
- Nuclear and Chemical Reactions
- Movies and Animations
- Fractals
- Literature
- Applications
- Tutorials

Tell me what you think about it, or what needs to be changed! :D
I will arrange all artworks as soon as possible, BUT this will mean that submissions are out of gear in the meantime.

If it's off, I'll put it in this journal for your information.
When it's on again, I'll update it here again. ;)

UPDATE: I've opened the gallery for new submissions now. It will be a bit confused, maybe hard to choose the right folder, but think about which one suits your artwork best. :)

I am not really satisfied about how I've rearranged the folders so far. Though I'm still working on it, it is very hard for me to determine in which folder an artwork needs to be. I've deleted many of them because they made me very confused, but also to sharpen the quality of the group more.

Maybe it's better to sort them on color. And for the artworks with more than one color, I could make a rainbow themed folder, black-white and a "different" one. Think this will also be easier for the ones that wants to submit their work.

Or am I wrong? Do you think the current ones are 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.

Greetings, I have a question , help me, please.Heart 

 I have a picture where two characters are underwater and it's a little dark.
It is difficult for me to know that my work folder can stay. Because the sun's rays barely visible...the light is very tenuous.Wink/Razz 

I think I can not upload my picture here, I have a serious doubt.CURSE YOU!

Ah, I know which one you mean. It indeed is a bit hard for me to decide if it's good enough or not, but because the sunrays aren't really visible, it's not good enough to put it in the gallery. Sorry.. :(
I hope you understand, you always can submit them to the Favorites Gallery though. :aww:
