Concerning Entries *Please Read*

Fri Jul 27, 2012, 6:00 PM by fireflyskys:iconfireflyskys:


Hello everyone. Now I know that I have been lacking a serious presence here in the group. (Which is why I'm still looking for people who want to be contributors.) But I do go through the submissions and I do get a lot that aren't mixed media pieces. Some clearly aren't, such as photographs and pencil drawings, and others I'm not always so sure about. It is my belief that there are people that have misunderstood the purpose of this group, i.e. they see the name of of the group and assume it means it is open to all types of media.

In the past, I haven't been very diligent with screening the entries, only denying those that clearly didn't belong, but accepting those that I wasn't sure about. This is primarily because I did not have the time to contact the owner of each and every submission to ask them about the materials they used. I'm sure I've let a good number of non-mixed media pieces slide through, but at this point I have no intention of punishing those members by removing their entries because it was my fault.

That said, I am going to implement a new rule: submissions that are not placed in some sort of mixed media category need to include the materials used in the description or they will automatically be declined.

I didn't really want to add this requirement because I always hate it when I have to edit my descriptions just for a group, but this seems to be the only fair way to solve this problem. This way, it is less about my personal opinion about what mixed media. If you can show me that you used more than one kind of media or material, it will be automatically accepted. If you can't claim more than one, than it obviously doesn't belong in a mixed media group anyway.

Deviations categorized as mixed media or collage in any way will automatically be accepted.

Thank you, and have a great day
fireflyskys

Group Info

This is a club for mixed media artists of all kinds. This means you can join whether you use traditional or digital means, or a combination of both.

The dictionary definition of mixed media is this:
- artistic media, as pen and ink, chalk, and graphite, used in combination: an old master drawing in mixed media.
- A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition.

Submissions
Submissions are limited to 4 per week per member. As the group grows this number will be adjusted.

Submissions currently need to be voted into the gallery. This is just our way of making sure that the submission in really a mixed media piece.

Accepted forms of mixed media

Traditional
This is art made from any form of traditional media. Example, using paint and incorporating other kinds of objects that are not usually meant for art is a common type of mixed media.

Note: using things like two different types of paint or different kinds of pencil are not mixed media, paint is paint and pencil is pencil

Traditional and Digital
Both traditional and digital mediums must be clearly a part of the piece. Sketching something on paper and then doing your actual art on the computer isn't acceptable.

Digital
Digital mixed media pieces are created using two different kinds of programs. An example is using photoshop and a 3D program to create one piece of artwork.

Note: This does not mean you can use two programs that perform the same function. An example is photoshop and opencanvas. These are different programs, but they are used to do exactly the same thing.


If you have any questions, or are wondering about a specific piece of yours, feel free to ask!

Somewhat, in the sense that I check in to approve submissions every so often. There isn't really any other activity though.

Doesn't seem like it. Submitted a deviation a week ago, still waiting for approval.
