Hello there, fellow equine fans !

Just a real quick reminder that the EEA's favorites are just for photography ! :) if you see cool art you can suggest it to the gallery for reviewing by the admins, not to the favorites. Equine photography definitely belongs in there though - and you can suggest you own photography too !


On another note, as it happens reguarly over here, I see too many members who have their art declined taking it very personnally and getting hurt by it.
It's in our very name, although the choice of words seems pretentious now that I look back at it - I was young, okay - only some artworks will be accepted into the group gallery. The EEA has high quality standards that are freakingly hard to pass. You can't just look at the art in the gallery and say "but mine looks just like it" because it doesn't and never will : no two art pieces are the same and they will not be fitted into labels.

So here's what I want to say : we are just an Internet group ! That means the EEA is of *no* importance to you or to your art, and especially not to your feelings. It's only an equine gallery among many, many others here on deviantART, and the fact that your art gets declined here doesn't mean you're worthless, or no good, or not good enough, or that we don't like you, or that we have favorite artists, or that you should leave deviantART or whatnot. It just means the piece you were trying to submit won't be shown in the EEA gallery and that's it. See how unimportant that is ? There are hundreds of equine groups on deviantART that will take it and hundreds of people who will love your work, and here is just a drop in the ocean.
Submitting artwork here is a good way to get constructive criticism if you ask for it on the deviation submission process, or to get exposure if the piece is accepted, but there's nothing else to it and it's not some mighty art level test or anything like that. We're just not here to hurt you or bring you down, so please don't take it like that. We just like to look at awesome equine art every day - who doesn't ?

Thank you if you read all this !

Group Info

:bulletgreen: Welcome to the dA group dedicated to fine equine art !

Our goal is to provide visitors with a list of artists they should not miss when looking for horse art. Look at the rules on upper right of the page to know exactly how it works. When you submit art it goes through standards review and gets accepted or not depending on it. Above is a list of contributors (elite artists) of the group. Enjoy the ride !

For better improvements, what should I do to get my artwork accepted here now that I've been declined? :) looking at the digital folder it appears you guys want illustrations of a sort, are 3D models okay here? If not, I most likely will be leaving. Thanks!

Please ask questions about submitted art in the submission post :)
I don't think we currently accept 3d rendered art but I would not say it would be completely out of the question.
The problem that would occur is if you download someone elses models and just repose it. That would definitely not be allowed. And the difficulty in controlling that would be a big hindrence in accepting 3d art.

The reason your submission was declined however, was because we do not accept design sheets.

Ah alright, good to know! Thanks for the information! I do mostly 3D sculpts as well so I was unsure if that was allowed or not. Good to know! :)

So done wit your group- like I need the negative feelings of having my art decline. Sorry I am not good enough.

As stated in our group rules, when you submit art here you have a chance of having it accepted or refused.
I'm sorry that you're taking this so seriously (this is really just a group on Internet, it shouldn't be of any importance to you) and that you felt bad when art was declined.

Sorry you feel that way.
It is clearly stated in the group that every image goes through review and if you are not comfortable with that then yes, it's probably not the group for you. Look at our affiliates for more equine art groups with different review methods.

All of my submissions have been declined. I see no reason why as my work is comparable to other accepted works and I've submitted to the correct folders. What's the deal with this group???

Yes we get this kind of messages pretty much all the time. I'm sorry that your submissions were declined and that you didn't ask why on the deviation submission process.
The EEA has strict standards so it's hard to reach them - I don't post in my own group :p

It's just strange based on what has been approved. I don't think this is a good group for me. I'm sure there are many deviations that I would have liked to see but they don't make it here. With no guidelines it's too frustrating. ~leaving group~

It's really hard to decide when you get a submission that's nearly-there-but-not-quite, and reviewing art is very subjective... sometimes we get stuck for weeks trying to decide, and there's only two of us

So you will ignore photomanipulations? (which includes an immense amount of drawing a lot of time). You do not consider them art, or their creators artists? I suppose I should have guessed when the group claims their elitism in their name.

I'm kindly retracting my member request, I don't think I'd like to be a part of a group that does not consider my work art, let alone me any sort of "elite artist".

Good luck with all that, guys. Thanks! :heart:

Where did that come from xD have you even read the rules of the group at all ?
We do not accept photomanipulation (just the same as photography and furries), end of story, why would you want to see any eliteness whatsoever in there ?

blackseagull Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Of course its art it is just not art for this group, just like photography and film is not accepted either. See affiliations for more photo and photomanipulation groups.

It's a shame you are declining art from people. Maybe you should do a list of things that will be declined because it's quite frustrating to not know why we are declined. Anyway, I left the group so I won't bother you anymore.
Have a nice day !

Well the purpose of the group is too keep to high art standards so we'll have to decline things along the way. There's no way to make a "list", that would require all images to fit into a category, while every artwork is unique... I can't tell you in advance what will be accepted or declined without seeing the piece. If you have a more precise suggestion, please note us :)

You can always ask the reason on your declined images submission process, and will get an answer... many members do

Your picture was declined because it was a double submission. The other is still in que.

Thumbs Up

Oh, I thought it didn't work the first time, my internet crashed when I did it... And I thought my submission was too fantastic for you (I only do fantastic things so that's why I left). Well, thank you for your answer, I will rejoin your group ! :) (Smile)
