yo guys, i think the group would automatically accept my work since I'm an admin, so I wanted approval (it's only fair!!) for my artwork. Idk how this fits in, it's a full painting but I feel like the white background would make it unfitting? (I know we have exceptions sometimes, buuut)…

thx so much for accept me in the group :)

Hello! I'd like to inquire about your quality guidelines? I have this piece I made just recently and the digital medium style I've used in it is something I've really come to like and I've decided to keep up with it! Thing is, I feel as if it may just be a bit too messy to qualify acceptance whenever I come to making cute critter works using it! So, may I ask if this style is acceptable? (I won't be submitting this as I know it's anthro; it's only an example of the style) If not, I will certainly keep enjoying future contributions made to the group. : )

Hi there!~
Since this isn't explicitly asking about a submission I'll just answer you here instead of making you note us or something XD Normally submission related stuff goes on the submission comment area in private but obviously that doesn't quite work here since it's not a submission.
Two staff vote per submission so I can only give you what I personally would say so this is just my own interpretation of the guidelines. I think that style you linked would fall under the "sketch-y/messy" category and likely declined ^^" It's not bad at all  though I mean personally I find sketches are cool in how raw they are, but this is probably not be the group for it.
That said we look forward to your future submissions! You have some very lovely artwork~ Not sure if you saw it though one of your deviations was featured last month and was just moved to the archive the other day ;3

Oh, I forgot about that ehh... yeah. Oopsie. 'xD
I'm being super experimental right now so I have no idea where my style will be going, but thanks for the input! I'm pretty sure I'll still end up making cleaner works to submit at some point anyways though hehe.
And thank you so much! I did not know about this asjjcnsdlbfl;; ;;3;;
