Please Read submission rules before submitting anything to the club.

:bulletred::bulletred: Updates :bulletred::bulletred:

Lately i've noticed a lot of misplaced submissions so just a quick reminder

All literature has to go in the Literature folder

All mature content, no matter what type of Artform or Medium, needs to go into the mature content folder.

please do not leave your submission in the comment section, submit it to an appropriate folder.

please do not submit to featured, it will not be accepted UNLESS it is a tutorial about constructive criticism.

Lastly please do use the comment section to advertise non-club related activities. You will will be flagged a spam

other then that i hope everyone getting some good constructive criticism.

Raichana
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Issues of Copyright
Recently we have had a lot of submissions that are reproductions of existing photographs in other mediums and they will all be removed for a few important reasons.
1) If you perfectly reproduce an already existing image that wasn't physically taken by you it cannot be critiqued due to it being "perfect" so it has no place in this club

2) It's breaking copyright laws and whether you like it or not it is art theft. this doesn't matter if you traced it or referenced it, according to the law it distorts the integrity of the piece and is liable to legal action. See any artistic medium, be it art, writing, drama photography ect. automatically falls under Moral rights if the residents live in a 'Treaty Country'. so if you copy an image from a photographer in the US (example of a treaty country) you are reproducing the work without permission and you can face legal action. (seriously, people will sue of the tiniest things)

So, if your wondering why your submission has been deleted this is probably why.
If you are the person who took the picture which is referenced and i have taken down the image wrongfully then please send me a note with proof that it is completely 100% your intellectual property from start to finish and i'll resubmit it.
HOWEVER if submission are resubmitted without a note You will be removed from the club permanently
No exceptions.

I have a feeling that there will be some controversy over this and that's really too bad.
Thank you for your time.


Then vs Now:
I'm looking around the club, ecstatic about how much it has grown... But I noticed that the club could be more active.
So i propose something that we can do as a club.
We all started somewhere, it could be years ago it could be months ago
so the point of this project is to take an image from your past and redraw it to show how much you have changed/improved since you started.
We can then give you constructive criticism on the piece to help you improve more.
All entries will be featured either through the journal or on the front page.
There will be no time limit.
This isn't a contest it's just something to do for fun to see how much you have changed.

Like this club project? have ideas for other things the club can do to promote activity? Please feel free to suggest... for the most part this club is peer run so i would love to hear ideas from everyone.

Contributors.
I was looking around and i think it would be nice to reward people who have been working hard to give constructive criticism, so i would like to here people nominate those they feel have been a great help to the club and their growth as an artist.
nominate people and we'll see how this goes, i'm also hope this encourages people to be more active with the club.

:bulletred::bulletred: Welcome To Constructive101 :bulletred::bulletred:

Hello anyone and everyone who enjoys giving and receiving constructive Criticism.
I am Raichana and i'm just going to quickly outline the basics. ^^
In this club we only have a few rules on how to comment.

:bulletblack: 1. Say something positive or kind about the picture right off the bat

:bulletblack: 2. State what you think needs improvement and how to go about doing it.

:bulletblack: 3. End the comment with something positive or kind.

It's not a difficult formula but it's one some users would like to see more often.

:bulletred::bulletred: Joining :bulletred::bulletred:

Everyone is welcome to join no matter what style of art you have or your age, it doesn't matter.
Just hit the join button... after a lot of stress i finally got it to work ^^

:bulletred::bulletred: Submitting Art :bulletred::bulletred:

All art is welcome.
As long as it is completely your creation, no traces, bases, or images pulled of sites like google.
To submit a piece to the club just look at the club folders, find the one you want to put your piece in and submit, that way you get exactly the contructive criticism you need.
There is a limit of 5 images per day to prevent flooding.

The main folders are

:bulletblack: General criticism.

:bulletblack: Anatomy/pose,
