I made this group with high hopes that we would be able to showcase only the best and most creative art Deviantart has to offer. We had quite the rocky start, but now we truly have some unbelievable artists here, and we're so happy to have you all!
We do have high standards, though. And that's where some of you get discouraged.
But the thing is, you shouldn't be discouraged! If your submission is declined, it should give you motivation to move forward and improve your art. Everyone has room for improvement, even the professionals! Just keep submitting and one day you might have your submission accepted to the group.
I feel really guilty that I have to decline so many art pieces. I just wanted you all to know that it doesn't mean your art isn't great. You all have so much talent.
