Feel free to submit anything you're unsure about.
To submit artwork, first you must join the group. After this, go on the groups homepage and there will be a big banner at the top with a 'submit' button. Just click that, then choose what to submit.
You can only submit three deviations a week to the group.
Below are the reasons for not accepting your artwork:
The main subject is not representitive of the club i.e. doesn't contain a butterfly/moth/caterpillar subject
The artwork is blurry/not focused on the main subject
A large watermark, which spoils the image
Bad overall quality of the photograph
These are, like i said, rough guidelines, and they only correspond to photographs. Beyond this, it's up to the specific moderator at the time to choose whether or not it should be submitted.
Why wasn't my photograph accepted?
This could be due to a number of things.
Too blurry - If an image isn't focused very well on the subject, the picture won't be submitted. Please note, this is the main reason for pcitures to be rejected.
Ugly watermark - The dA watermark as you know, covers a large part of the picture, and usually covers the main subject. But saying this, we don't reject pictures just because they have the watermark. If the watermark isn't too visable, and doesn't disrupt the picture, then it will be accepted. It's always a good idea to create you're own watermark, as then you can control the size and the type displayed. Please note - if the watermark is visable on the small view, it won't be submitted.
Manipulated - If the photo is too manipulated, as in, it has very un-natural colours, too contrasted etc, it won't be submitted.
Surely you want as many pictures as you can get?
At butterflys-forever we want to promote quality, not quantity. There is, however, a group who are trying to get as many butterflies as possible, so if you have lots and lots to offer, it's always a good place to start Million-Butterflies
Why wasn't my drawing accepted?
Like the photographs, we try to keep the standard tip-top. This category tends to be down to the admins preference.
